Program is almost ready.
The download link is:

https://app.box.com/s/r7ddotq2cuz6422irc3a

After compressed with InnoSetup, the file is 18.2 MB

I remember you: program is in spanish and movies too.
Please, tell me if everything is ok for you.

Thanks in advance,

The program works normally on my Windows 7 Ultimate (64 Bits).
By the way, a lot of movies to watch... :P

Here is a sample to test the Chromium component.

The download link is: (near 31MB)

https://app.box.com/s/ldfdtjtzkg2vy3r7ou1z

After unzipped on any folder, you must run the CEF.exe program (with the NeoBook icon)

I tested it on XP SP3 and Win7 Ultimate.

Please, tell me if program runs good for you ( and what windows version, please)

I tried it with Windows 7 and it displays very good. Sites that will break (like newsweek.com) in the NeoBook Trident browser appear correctly in the Cromium component. It is a "must have" in my opinion. But how do I incorporate it into my NeoBook project? Is there a link to some documentation? You only posted a compiled .exe file, not a flat text PUB script...

The Neobook's moderator suggested in another post that the size of the Chromium object (30 MB) is perhaps too large. But I don't think users worry about that. Firefox is around 30 MB for example. And you can make a small installation file that can fit on a floppy that opens the download zip from your website.

On second thought, if it is a choice between changing a key value in the Windows Registry (Browser Emulation to DWORD = 9000) or downloading a 30Mb Chrome object to modify, I would choose the first option....

I remember "Floppies", but do they even make them anymore?

Even if they do, can you find a PC with a Drive to read/write on them ?

I threw away about 20 blank ones about 4 years ago.

P.S. 1 @ floppy = 1.4 MB ... 1 @ Flash Drive (thumb size) = 4,000 MB to 64,000 MB ... progress !!!

Actually, the "original" floppy was 5 inches big and held up to 512k. And they really did "flop". And if you "flopped" them a little too much, you couldn't read the data on them anymore. My original x286 8mhz Turbo had two 5 in. floppy drives; one for DOS and the other for the program disk. If you were unfortunate enough to only have 1 floppy drive, you would be prompted by DOS to insert the program disk at various intervals. They made a loud 'clunk clunk' while reading the data that you could hear in the other room.

Yeah. There's been some progress......

Young Wrangler:

Actually, the "original" floppy was 5 inches big and held up to 512k.

Only if you are talking about PCs ... I worked on ...

1) the original floppy disks from IBM that were 8" big and held a grand total of 32 KB !!!

2) 5.25" floppy disks used to boot the IBM System 36 ... can't remember capacity

3) 5.25" floppy disks on the Commodore ... a whopping 98 KB

4) I thought the very first floppy disks on the PC were Single Side Single Density (SSSD) ... 128 KB

And they really did "flop". And if you "flopped" them a little too much, you couldn't read the data on them anymore.

They (3.5") still flop ... if you can get past the hard plastic cover that replaced the "manilla paper" covers of the 5.25" floppies.

I need show a webpage into a WebBrowser object.
I detect very strange behavior depending Windows Version.
In both cases, there are installed the Flash Player Component version 11,8,800,94 (the latest version)

URL to test:

http://vk.com/video_ext.php?oid=1641517 ... fba12&hd=1

On XP SP3:
Running into WebBrowser Object: Works fine.
Running into Internet Explorer (IE8): Does not work. After some javascript errors, does not recognize the Flash Version. Banner appairs telling need to upgrade Flash Version.

On Windows 7 Ultimate:
Running into WebBrowser Object: Does not work. Not errors but does not recognize the Flash Version. Banner appairs telling need to upgrade Flash Version.
Running into Internet Explorer (IE10): Works fine.

I had changed the WebBrowser Settings between IE7 Compatibility Mode Checked/UnChecked, the result is the same on Win7, does not work.

Any ideas in order to normalize this behavior ?

Thanks in advance,
David de Argentina


A Buster Keaton comedy! It plays on my system (Windows 7, IE11) ok. If users are using a browser older than IE8, the "IE9 Standards" Registry emulation gives the best display for HTML5 and CSS. The following Registry settings with 9000 as the DWORD will improve NeoBook display and performance...


For IE9 Standards mode the DWORD is 9000 and it will appear as 0x2328 when entered in the reigistry:

Browser Emulation

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
SOFTWARE
Microsoft
Internet Explorer
Main
FeatureControl
FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION
yourNeoBookprogram.exe = (DWORD) 00009000

To control the value of this feature by using the registry, add the name of your executable file to the following setting and set the value to match the desired 9000 setting. (Don't use 9999 IE9 Forced Standards)...
