    New Features in the Works

    I have been working on some new features...

    The Taskbar thumb preview will have Prev, Play|Pause, Next buttons on it, like so:

    You can optionally turn on Windows Notifications when a new Song plays. The technique I used was to leverage Windows TrayIcon Balloon hints, which Windows 10 converts to notifications. The advantage is I can suppress a "Ding" and the user does not have to visit Settings in order to turn off notification ding sound. The notifications are cleared from the notification panel when the app is terminated. The disadvantage is that these notification require the tray icon, so this feature is disabled if you run SLX without the tray icon (Allow Run in Background = UnChecked).

    I have revamped the Tray Menu settings page. It is a little more professional looking. Captions and Links are entered using a grid. Second, certain "Built-In" macros can be entered that are not URLs, but perform certain functions. Ideas welcome on any additional macros you can think of that would be useful.

    I'm still experimenting and testing these features. New ideas are always welcome.

Are you seeing issues only on Windows 7? Any more info to add?
    OK, just started again and here is the log:
    Code:

    The same Version runs on my notebook with WIN10 Home 32-bit without any problems. On my Windows 7 was an older Version running also without problems. I think it was 1.3.12 because this version is on my HDD.

    The delete this one and reinstall 1.3.12. Works fine. There must be something wrong in the new version.

    Install as administrator

    mbartelt,
    On my Win 8.1 laptop the 1.5.4 version wouldn't connect until I uninstalled it and then ran the install as administrator.

    I found the issue. In 1.5.4, I added a step in the server test to do a simple Ping using my networking library as described in a previous post). Upon investigation of your problem, I learned that this Ping step requires elevated privileges (except when running on Windows 10, apparently). I have just uploaded a new Legacy Installer, which I labeled 1.5.5, but it has the new features that I will release in 1.6.0 soon. As a quick fix, 1.5.5 will ignore "Access Denied" inside of Ping and just connect the old way. So go get the 1.5.5 legacy installer and that should work for you.

    Thank you, problem solved.

    Idea for the tray menu:
    URL with search parameters (placeholder) from current played title
    i.e. search at discogs for artist with:
    https://www.discogs.com/search?q=%s&btn=&type=all
    %s should be replaced with current artist automatically

    I have implemented and I am testing this. I have 3 variables defined:
    %Artist%
    %Track%
    %Album%

    that you can embed in your Link URLs in the Tray Menu Links. SLX will then replace them with what is currently playing in the browser.

    So you can create links like this:

    Still playing around with it, but wanted to get thoughts/opinions.

    I really like this idea.
