My Rants Vol. 1: Some weird stuff among Flash screensaver programs

April 30, 2009 | 2:40 pm | Tags: software

Well, as you may have read, my Friend Ondřej Vaverka and I are developers of a freeware Flash screensaver builder called InstantStorm. As a freeware developer, you have to submit your program to dozens of download sites in order to promote it. Submitting InstantStorm through a variety of sites like that, I discovered something… uhm, unbelievable.

Getting CorelDRAW 12 to work with 64-bit Vista

July 13, 2008 | 5:53 pm | Tags: software,vista

This is just a quick tip but I’ve spent like an hour figuring out how to run CorelDRAW 12 in the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista. Every time I ran the ‘setup.exe’ installer on the first CD, I ended up getting an ‘Internal Error 2738’ message. Here’s how to get rid of it:

C:\Windows\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\SysWoW64\vbscript.dll
C:\Windows\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\SysWoW64\jscript.dll

That’s it. I hope this will work for you. Oh, wait, there’s another tip. Stay away from automatic CorelDRAW 12 updates in 64-bit Vista, just stick with the version that came out with the CDs. It will probably slow down the program.

IrfanView is an awesome image viewer. I’ve been using it for almost 9 years now. Though, just like every piece of software, it’s not perfect. Every time I set IrfanView as a default viewer for certain image types in Windows Vista (Options > Properties/Settings > Extensions), no matter whether the “Use different icons (Icons-PlugIn)” check box is checked or not, the same ugly red program icons are displayed for all IrfanView Images. It’s pretty bad when you can’t tell apart different image file formats by looking at their icons. So I was wondering if there was a way to reset the default Vista icons (they’re pretty nice actually) and keep the images associated with IrfanView. I made this little registry modification that fixes these icons for BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF files.
