Windows 7 Shell Integration plugin for foobar2000 - jumplist + interactive thumbnail support

I noticed a 2nd bug with this plugin, it removes foobar2000 from Flip 3D (Win+Tab). I removed the plugin, and foobar2000 came back to Flip 3D. I stopped using it for now.

Hey guys, I'll be releasing a project I've been working on soon -- it's a custom application launcher made just for Windows 7. Here's a screenshot preview:

I should have a working alpha/beta out soon. I'll be sure to add it to the OP once it's ready. Though if anyone wants an early preview or wants to help test it, just send me a PM and I'll provide a download link to what I've got so far.

And what will be the feature in you application?

From what i can see you can create an hotkey to launch an application and terminate them but doest it have or will have other features?

And btw it look nice from now :)

Hi,

there's also my Windows 7 logon background changer built with .net/Windows Presentation Foundation.

yes I know, yet another logon changer, but this one looks more modern than traditional windows forms app out there ^^

also, it is more UAC friendly, since it asks you admin rights only the first time you use it

I've made another windows 7 friendly application. This one uses the taskbar progress bar feature introduced in Windows 7. This application will also run on xp and vista with .net 3.5.

It's an MD5/SHA1 hash generator with shell integration, but it also allows you to check the generated hash online to see if it matches one of the original Windows 7 (and some other MS products) iso hash, to ensure your newly downloaded windows 7 iso file is safe (untouched, malware free), and not corrupt.

I don't like that you've included tweaking tools...seems pointless....

As for that firewall control software, it seems unnecessary

I didn't originally intend to include those but others posted them so I figured why not? That's when I decided to categorize the apps into sections and listed those apps last (least relevant but still useful). As for the firewall control software, I haven't tested it so I can't say for sure. I'll remove it if needed.

This thread should be called "Apps made with Windows 7 in mind"

Yeah if a mod wouldn't mind changing it that would be great.

Added another tweak utility. Also added headers to make the 2 distinct classes of apps (in this case) more visible: the apps that actually implement Windows 7 features (taskbar-related mostly) and the ones that don't (but are still made for Windows 7).

It's very necessary. The free version gives control over outbound connections to the Windows 7 firewall.

And now uses windows7 taskbar previews as an option.

The Player Controls show when the Plugin is first started with WinAmp then when you go back to the task bar icon for a second time the Player Controls are gone (Not There)

Could this be a bug you have not fixed yet.

I think the Plugin is just GREAT!!!!!

Keep Up The Good Work!!!!!
