Windows 8 support

Two months ago Microsoft released a new version of Windows.  It doesn’t matter if we love it or not, but we have to support it. Therefore now Zentimo has passed compatibility tests with Windows 8, furthermore we have added a nice Metro UI-style skin, you can see it in the begin of the post. On Windows 8 it’s set by default, however you can choose it in the settings on other versions of Windows.

Fixing a drive letter to several removable drives

Per many requests we have added an ability to fix a drive letter not only to a one drive but to the several drives on the condition that you connect them at different times. This feature might be used for backup purposes.

When you connect two or more drives with the same fixed drive letter Zentimo handles this case and displays a dialog that allows you to choose a temporary drive letter for the drives that weren’t fixed to a letter. Read more on setup here

Fixed drive letter sign in the menu

A small but useful improvement for those who use fixing drive letters feature. Now when a drive is fixed to a letter a small lock sign is displayed in the row of the drive.

Another improvements and bug fixes
  • Folder mount points are now displayed in a full size (not truncated)
  • Card reader drives are displayed even when the option “Display storage device
  • volumes” is disabled
  • Card reader drives are displayed even when the option “Display storage device volumes” is disabled
  • Skin scheme file now has usual web format of the colors
  • Fixed: Verbose logging was enabled by default
  • Fixed: Autorun programs called before changing drive letters (e.g. for fixed  drive letters). This caused double calling of the autorun programs.
  • Fixed: and some other minor bugs

Be happy and have fun in new coming year!

Zentimo 1.3 beta1

May 10th, 2011

Hi friends!

We are pleased to present the new beta version of Zentimo. As always we have fixed some of the most annoying bugs and made some significant interface improvements. In this version we’ve added skins supporting. Now you have the ability to choose your preferable skin for Stopping Menu – something to match your system color scheme. The installation pack contains two additional predefined skins, such as “Classic” and “Black” color schemes. How to choose a predefined skin you can see on the following screenshot:

How to create your own skin? It’s easy… Just open one of predefined skin folders (e.g. “C:/Program Files/Zentimo/Skins/Black”) and do the same using your favorite graphic and text editors.

Other changes:

  • We’ve added a scroll bar, which became very useful when you connect a lot of devices.
  • Quick Launch Menu closed immediately after launching an app or adding a new one. Now we made Quick Launch Menu more user friendly. It hangs on the display for a couple of seconds before closing, so you can add numbers of apps for once.
  • If you check the option “Stop device by clicking device Item in stopping menu” you don’t need to use the stopping device button. So, now the button hides when you choose that behavior that makes stopping menu less overloaded.

Fixed bugs:

  • The command “list” of the command line didn’t work properly.
  • All previous versions of the program have a problem working on a multi-monitor system. Program’s windows were displayed on a wrong monitor instead of to be displayed on the primary one. We changed that behavior in this version.
  • Sometimes when the program tries to read a DWord parameter from Windows Registry it appears not DWord, as expected, but String, which led to wrong program behavior.
  • Sometimes a device speed test finished with error.
  • The program locked a folder, which used for saving program’s settings, preventing to delete it.
  • There was a problem with loading program settings if “Decimal symbol” in “Region and Language” options of Windows settings was changed.

Please feel free to download this beta and give us your notes, suggestions or bug reports!
