Done.
Now works with this version you sent me (958).

Edit:
1- Well you said that the build number has to do with the issue, but checking with other compilations that I have here (build 904 and 910) and both have the same bug mentioned and another thing is that this new compilation you sent me is much smaller (in KB) than the two I have.

2- I just download the version available in the forum and the bug continues.

First note for all translators, there will be a small Revision 3 update of the language file. Most important, I'll give you the ability to get credits for your translation. The update will be very minor, so no worries and thanks in advance for your updates.

candiba:

The installer I gave you is latest internal version of BT I have on my system, it was never released. The installer was modified, so that the documentation file isn't part of the installer anymore and it will be downloaded during installation instead. That vastly reduced the file size of the installer and will allow me to easily add localized documentation files in future.

Why you're seeing the bug with the public BT version is too much for me. All BT installers should install the regkey. *shrugs*

The English example language file Revision 3 is now available.

This gives you the ability to get credits for your translations, take a look at Polish for example:

http://meggamusic.co.uk/shup/1303769859/itp.png

and localizes the rest of the tool. I bet VIPer will be happy, that the 'v' for the Version number and 'Build' is now localizable as well.

Revision 3:

- added LangString Translation_Author
- added LangString Product_Version
- added LangString Product_Copyright
- added LangString No_Lang_Dir
- added LangString GEN_TRAP
- added LangString File_Generator_HTML
- small change in LangString File_Generator (added a 'v')
- fixed tiny typo in LangString GEN_WIN7SHELL

If there are any problems etc, just let me know about it.

I've worked long and hard on a feature request. One of the main problem with the tool was, that the GUI was simply too large, especially on systems with lower screen resolutions.

I spent many hours to add a tabbed interface, and I'm really glad to present it now:



The only downside is, that it requires yet another language file update, my apologies to the translators. The new version adds 5 more strings. The size and positions will be optimized once I got language updates and can work against them.

So Revision 4 of the language file is now available, again sorry.

Wow that was quick, thanks.

And no worries, I'll increase the size of the buttons so that your translations will fit.

New test build will be available once I twekaed the sizes a bit more, but must go to bed now, it's 03:00AM in the moring. :/

A new test version (Build 0938) is available with updated Turkish, PortugueseBR and Polish language file , thanks guys.

it has the complete new tabbed interface, I've spent an age to fine tune it for the languages. It still needs some final tweaks, but all languages should fit. You have a lot more space than in the old version.

If there's anything wrong, just lemme now.

Candiba:

For next build, I've vastly increased the space for the entries on the left side, so your longer Versions for 'Winamp Tray Control Icon Pack Path' and 'Winamp File Type Icon Library Path' could fit now:

Thanks siebe83.

Build 0950 is now available, changes from 0938 build:

- increased size of all labels to allow longer translations and prevent clipping of existing translations
- fixed visual glitch in groupboxes when switching between tabs
- fixed visual re-drawing glitch of tabs, when one of the 'Open' directory buttons was pushed
- made background of the tool white instead of gray
- filled in English strings for missing strings in Russian language file (so Russian is at least usable again)

v2.0 Final is now available. I've fixed a bunch of visual issues, I found in the last RC. I even started work on Skin support, but it's time for a release now, I worked nearly a week on the tool now and I need a break.

Thanks go to all people, who tested or translated the tool or gave me tips.

You can still update your existing language file or provide a new language file. When I got a new language file I'll recompile the tool.

I think that you should remove the names of plug-ins from the language files. Then you may find it easier to update this tool in the future. Note: I have kept English names for plug-ins.

osmosis:

I'm glad that you like the look. Thanks for your feedback. I'll note your plugin list and it will be added for the next version.

VIPer:

Yeah, I should come up with a proper Plugin Name and Version Number detection, the current thing is nothing more than guessing, based on a Whitelist what the plugin name is. Sadly none of the Winamp plugins hold their name or the version number in resources (like for example the Gracenote dll does), so you cannot catch them from an external program the same way, like you can do it as Winamp Plugin (like OneForNunz does). So real name and version number detection from an external program is really tricky.

Nevertheless, my aim was it, that the Plugin names get the same localized names like the localized Winamp builds. I've localized nearly all native Winamp Plugins and a bunch of 3rd party plugins in the German Winamp language pack. So I used the same localized German strings in the generated txt/html list too. So even with a proper name detection, the names of the official Nullsoft Plugins (along with a bunch of DrO's plugins) will always be part of the language files. But I fully agree with you, though. Adding more 3rd parties requires lot of work from me and from the translators.

So yeah, I'll only add langstrings in future for plugins, which are really fully localizable. None localizble plugins (the majority of all available plugins) will be hard coded in the tool. This saves work for me and for you.

I'll recompile a new final build with updated russian lng file and osmosis' plugin list tomorrow, I just came home a few minutes ago and am really tired.

pet peeve of mine:

i can't highlight and copy whats shown in the dialog. windows does that a lot, and it really irks me. i always feel like i should be able to highlight and copy text.

also, the tool could use links to this thread and maybe to winamp.

Build 0986 is now available. It has an updated Russian language file and is able to detect the names of osmosis' plugin list. If you have one or more plugins, which are listed as 'Unknown Plugin' and you want to see the name in the HTML Report instead, do it exactly like osmosis did, provide the file name and the plugin name and I'll add it.

MrSinatra:

Neither any the info tools I tried (GPUZ, CPUZ and even dxdiag) nor Winamp's preferences for example provide the ability to select the text and a context menu.

You can simply generate a TXT/HTML report, where you select and copy whatever you want. I fail to see any advantage. It's meant as a view thing only, for other things we have the report(s). *shrugs*

As for the links, the HTML report already has a weblink and I'll probably add a link in the GUI of the tool too, once I've finished my website. A winamp.com link makes no sense, because you must have Winamp installed, otherwise the tool won't run.

if you don't want to do it, thats one thing, and certainly your right. but to say that there is no reason or advantage to doing so, is just flat out wrong. if it makes coding difficult, and its not worth the trouble, then i totally understand, but if you don't do it "just because" well thats annoying.

and yes, i know i could generate a report, but if a user wants to say, just copy their ATF string to post online, why force those steps? ease of use is a valid reason imo. (and again, i understand choosing not to IF its a lot of work, but only in that case frankly)

as to the links, i was thinking that if a winamp version was not the latest, you'd have a link to get the latest version. so i should have been clearer about that... the tool could do a version check to let the user know if its the latest version or not, and if not, in that context a link makes sense.

MrSinatra:

we all have different opinions. 'Person A' thinks, that feature X would be a killer feature, while 'Person B' does not think so. That's how real life works and it would be crazy, if we'd all have the same opinions.

I accept, that you want this feature, that's your opinion (and others may agree with you). But on the other hand you must accept, that I don't see any advantage (and Pawel seems to agree with me) and this independent of the amount of work/time, which is needed to change the labels to tedit boxes.

But saying, that the only valid reason for me not to do it, would be tons of work isn't fair. Do I have no right to simply tell you my own opinion? Do I just have the right for an own opinion, if it requires too many code changes? Most programs I tried, don't use Tlabels and when I think about it it makes sense. The aim is just a visual presentation of the infos. For more things you can create reports, or use the 'Open' buttons to directly access the folders from within the tool

But lets make a vote, if anyone else wants to see it too, I may try to change it. So does anyone else want to see the ability to select e.g. the ATF string directly in the tool or are the reports enough?

As for the links, I misunderstood you. I already thought about 'Check for Update' buttons for Winamp and BT Tool, but I don't know what url Winamp uses for the update check and if AOL would give me the link. So it's possible that I'm just able to hold a version file on my own website and I cannot guarantee if this would be up to date. Would it make sense, to provide an ownWinamp update check? I'm just not sure, tbh.

Pawel:

You really don't like the image, huh? I spent 3 hours to get it to that stage and I think it looks ok. If you can do a better image feel free to make one, you'll get full credits for it. But I hate image manipulation and am done with graphics, hehe.

honestly, i'm not trying to argue with either of you, but you guys were the ones saying there was no reason to do it. i merely pointed out that there in fact IS reason to do it. you said no advantage to it, so i have now pointed out the advantage to it.

everyone has a right to any opinion they want, but any opinion isn't always right or valid.

again, not trying to pick a fight, but for me its just a matter of logic. if it can be done, and has utility, and is not difficult to do, then my Q is why not?

i'm guessing you know my vote. again, no wish to argue, just stating my case. i think its great you've made this tool, its very useful.

a couple of other suggestions:

1. can it remember the language? i always have to reselect english.
2. can an "open" link point directly to the winamp ini file?

i guess this also ties in to the idea of reporting the date of the exe. if that could be done, it could be compared to whats online somehow...?

i feel i have been bad at communicating "what i mean" regarding the links/updates.

basically, i think a really cool feature of W.I.T., would be that when you run it, it would be "smart enough" to know if your winamp is the latest. if not, you could have a link to DL the newest one, and / or a link to the wiki showing the versions. sorry for the confusion.

and also, thx again for coding the useful utility.

True that, neither you're right, that the feature would be useful, nor am I right that it's useless

1. None of the most common programs I've seen, have it
2. Personally I prefer labels instead of TEdits
3. It would require massive code changes

But 3. shouldn't matter, since 1. and 2. are already my opinion and should be accepted.

But lets stop talking about it, as soon as other people vote for it too, I may change my opinion.

I have no idea, if they share the link or not, I try to contact Nullsoft and ask them, but tbh, i doubt that they'll give me the link. A link in the Wiki wouldn't work, I need an ini, xml or txt file hosted on a server to do the check.

The main problem is, that the exe file holds no real date. There is no resource in the file, where the date saved. What you see under 'About Winamp' is an internal date, which only Winamp itself can access. That's the reason, why i haven't implemented an exe date detection into the tool yet.

well, given #3, i withdraw the request. in that case, i don't think its worth it. i'll only add though that following the example of other apps is often not desirable.

2. yes, i think so. maybe its possible to delineate between directories and files, but i think people will get it either way.

right. i guess you could host it, but then you'd have to update it too. so not the best solution. hopefully aol shares. the wiki link though might be parsed, and/or just supplied as a straight, direct link to the user regardless of update status. i think its unfortunate that winamp the app doesn't have any in app links to its own wiki, but thats "info" the info tool could make the user aware of.

v2.01 is now available, it has a French language file, big thanks to Veekee.

The tool now remembers your selected language and I've added a few hidden ini settings.

Note: the Classic SHOUTcast and Classic Winamp HTML Stylesheets still need some fine tuning, and I may add some community created stylesheets in future too.

Here you can see the stylesheets in action:

OldSchool SHOUTcast style:

Winamp Classic style:

The hidden excluding settings were a side effect from my dev work. I have tons of skins and creating the HTML report on first start needs an age on my system.

All of these hidden options will be added to the GUI in an upcoming major release.

Mr.Sinatra: Update check or the ability to open Winamp.ini from within the tool requires language updates. I will for sure add your requests, but you have to wait for the next beta release, because I cannot force the translators to do daily updates. And a mix between English and localized strings is a no go. But no worries, the 2.1 beta period will start soon.

Problematic too, they could host an installer which ships a winamp.exe with older date in 'About Winamp'. I must think a bit, how to resolve the issue.

v2.02 is now available.

I've changed my point of view and added MrSinatra's feature request. All right labels where changed to (read only) text edit boxes. This allows you to select the text and copy it to the clipboard. take a look at the attached image for an example.

Big thanks to DrO for teaching me, how to hide the borders of the text edit controls.

I was also finally able to find the bug with the stretched header image.

v2.1 Beta is now available. I've added a few things I missed, like Skin/Language pack Font detection and Metadata reading settings detection. Registered File Types are now, like in the old 1.x builds available in the GUI again too.

The DirectX detection is experimental. Under Windows XP I can read the version from the registry and can compare the version number with a list, so that I can say, if you're using DirectX 8 or 9.0c. For DirectX 10+, the infos are no longer part of the registry, neither hold any of the DirectX files on the system the valid version string. (all DirectX files have the same version number like Windows, so I have no idea, where dxdiag gets the infos from). So I was forced to use my own detection method for Vista+ systems.

I need some Vista users, who can confirm, if the detected DirectX version is correct or not.

A nice side effect of the DirectX detection is, that the 'Open DirectX diagnostic program' returned in form of the new 'Info' button.

Some screenshots of the DX detection will follow soon.

Hello everyone,
I want to be the first person with the feedback.
I have Windows Vista 32-bit and DirectX 11 (more details in some of my earlier posts). And this new "Winamp Info Tool"-Version does also say "DirectX 11" on my computer.
The "Info" for "Installed DirectX Version" opens the same "DirectX-Diagnoseprogramm" (sorry, I don't know the exact English word for this now), that I had found and opened on another way some weeks ago, when I had looked for some more details of my computer.
Greetings from Sabine Klare Aka Sternenmaschinebine

Sabine Klare:

thanks for confirmation, that DirectX detection worked for you, much appreciated. I hope more Windows Vista/7 users can give feedback.

2.1 Beta 2 is now available.

Changelog:

- [HTML/TXT Generator] added file count statistics at bottom of reports (shows the amount of installed Skins, Plugins etc)
- [HTML/TXT Generator] added optional detection of MilkDrop and AVS presets (set ReportVis=1 in Winamp_Info_Tool.ini)

Because tons of Vis presets could slow down report creation, it's disabled by default. To enable it, simply set the settings to 1 in your ini file:



Forgot to note, that all the new stuff isn't localizable yet, a newer language file will be released, when I'm done with 2.1.

Thanks, I've added Japanese.

Here you can find a test build:

Note that some newer strings of 2.1 Beta are not localizable yet, I'll release a newer example file as soon as time allows.

2.1 Final will be the last version for a while then.
