    Great little app - extremely useful.

    Have a bit of a cosmetic issue with the icon used, so thought I would re-compile the .ahk files with a new icon which appeared to work fine, indeed the app works fine apart from the Message Codes -so the Sys tray right click menu displays message codes rather than the actual message text text.

    The additional parameters is the same.

    Is there a way round this (sorry I am a fairly basic AHK user - written a couple of 5 line apps - but this blows my mind). So all the include files are beyond me (I understand the concept but not how it relates to compiling the .ahk files)

    Thanks

    Phat

      Hi Phat,

      recompiling is done by:

      "%ProgramFiles%\Autohotkey\Compiler\Ahk2Exe.exe" /in %Dest%.ahk /icon "WinSize2.ico"

      Remark: the "/icon" which should include the icon into the exe did not work.

      But: When you only see the message numbers instead of the message strings: The message file (WinSize2_Lang_EN.Msg for the English version) cannot be accessed (handbook chapter 6.2.2).

      !When you work with the sources instead of the .exe you should copy the .ahk-files to the working dir (from "Source" to the parent dir).

      When you reworked the icon, could you send it to me?

      Thanks Magra.

      Hi Magra,

      Sorry I haven't responded, I actually gave up on the above when I realised you could hide the icon anyway.

      Thanks for the advice, I may still give it a go.

      If you are interested the Icon I was going to use was the Windows 7 cursor icon - so I doubt you could release Winsize with this icon (which is a shame because it is actually a pretty nice icon and to me it prefectly embodies what Winsize does).

      If I do re-compile, will send you a copy. As you probably noticed by experience with AHK is non-existent (I just compile some of the scripts I find on the forums).

      Thanks again.

      Phat
