Common Incompatibilities

Hi all,

I've been testing CXOffice with a variety of small apps and I'm coming across some common incompatibilities I wonder if people know what the cause are:

  • Missing pull down menus: I've seen this in AVS, Libronix, IE6 (not Win98) where the standard pull down menus (e.g. file, edit, view, etc.) aren't around
  • Incompatibilities reading from the registry? For example in AVS Video Converter I have no issue putting in a registration key, but no matter how many times I enter it, it keeps telling me that no key was entered. Similarly activation data in another program is not kept.

I realize that the intent is to make it so no windows files are required, but I do have them if there's an easy way to "fix" these.

If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it. Since I'm seeing similar issues in more than one app, I figure someone probably has a good idea of what's causing it if indeed there are common issues.



No drop-down menus in IE6 as run in a non-win98 bottle is a known issue. IE6 support is most complete in a win98 bottle. I can't speak specifically to the other apps. Changes in registry settings should stick in most programs. Are you creating new keys by going into "Run Windows Command", selecting the bottle, and then typing "regedit" to access the registry editor? If not, I recommend that route. If so, and your key entries are still not sticking, then there is most likely some incomplete code somewhere along the line with these unsupported programs that's dropping the entries.
