    Hey Vlad!!

     

    I discovered some bugs which PPA causes in the system after installation. I don't know if you're aware of them but here goes. Firstly, after installing PPA, Windows doesn't know its own edition i.e. when you check under Windows Activation, Windows edition is blank.

    And, when I run Windows Experience Index, it doesn't complete. It used to complete before installing PPA.

    I have pinpointed these errors to PPA because I did a clean installation and these happened right after the restart which succeeds PPA. I guess something with the way you fixed the Test Mode watermark is causing this. I'm just guessing here. I don't have a clue. Also, you migt be aware of sfc /scannow which we run in a command prompt to find any system errors. When I run sfc /scannow, it says errors found and fixed, tells me to restart and the Test Mode watermark is back . I used your fix for that

     

    Now, there are some bugs in PPA itself. I like to turn off the option in PPA which disables adjustment of keyboard backlight. After I turn this off, whenever PPA starts on startup it kills the Bootcamp process and I have to manually start it. Why is that? Please look into this

     

    You have been very helpful listening to our errors, bugs and problems, so please help me on this one. I'm using a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro non-retina 15-inch and the OS is Windows 8 Pro with Media Center.

     

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the prompt reply Vlad. I understand that the Test Mode removes the entire string. But, I must add that it prevents activation as well. After reinstalling Windows and before activation, I had installed PPA for Trackpad++ (I'm highly addicted to Trackpad++!!) and then I couldn't activate the system. I had to reinstall Windows again, activate Windows and then install these 2 things. So, please kindly look into this. Things like Windows Edition and Windows Experience Index are trivial things but activation is a serious issue.

     

    And, also now I understand why PPA 3.0a showed the Windows edition on my desktop but not the Test Mode message! I always wondered how it disappeared after 3.0b! Ha!

     

    Now, regarding Bootcamp.exe, are you saying that keeping that option will necessarily kill the Bootcamp process and hence, that's why it is being removed?

    Vlad, is the dll resource you edit "shell32.dll.mui"?

    So, I just started using Trackpad++.  15" MacBook Pro Aluminum.  Early 2011.  Win 7 Pro.

     

    It seemed to install correctly, but if Trackpad++ Control Module is running, it consumes 12% of the CPU and my fan always runs noisily.  Not good.

     

    Is this an expected level of cycles consumption?  Seems like a lot, and the fan/heat is a show-stopper.

     

    I like what the software does.  I hate the side-effects.  I'm hoping there's a fix, or that you'll say this is a big surprise and offer some advice for how to possibly address this issue.

    Ok, whatever that obscure installer bug is, I had tickled it.  I do have a 64-bit OS, but I'd followed the instructions carefully and had installed Power Plan Assistant first, as directed.

     

    What matters to me most is that Trackpad++ is no longer at the top of my task manager.  We fixed it!

     

    Thanks so much.

    Hey vladimir, I've been using your Trackpad++ for a while now, and while I did try your workaround for the two-finger right click (not tap), the result is both a left click and a right click (if I were to "right click" a shortcut on the superbar, the right click menu pops up but also minimizes the window). Is it possible to make an option to have  the two-finger right click as a separate option? Thanks!
