  1. voted for WIN ME... nuff said. hah... i just want a version that doesnt crash so often!
  2. I've finally managed to get the image on the form. Anyway, here's how I did it: Instead of directly loading the image on the form, I first saved it as a .res file in the Image editor, then used it in the program code...
  3. Well, I happened to stumble upon this code on the internet: Declare a TBitmap variable, initialise it during the form's creation, then set its parameters with the X, and YCoORds in the Form, and the name of the file I want. private Bmp: TBitmap; public { public declarations } end; implementation {$R *.dfm} procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject); begin Bmp := Bitmap.Create; end; // The rest deals with HInstance, handles, etc. which I dont understand.. // Needless to say, the code isn't working on my computer... Hmm, this is // Windows API programming apparently

  5. Wow! How much RAM? So how long would a full system virus scan take?
  6. One guess: World Cup 2010
  7. Hi there. I have 2 x 120gb HDD. My Delphi programmes use a lot of disk space! I have over 100 music videos installed, plus all those .WAV songs, then there are my DVD's, my digital photoes, my personal videos, and there's the games, of course! I need all that disk space...
  8. Hi all. Question 1 I'm in the middle of creating a simple Delphi game, and am having a little trouble with the TImage component. Can't its shape be changed? I don't want to see a silhuette surrounding my character when he moves about on the screen. (E.g. when he moves onto a green surrounding, you can make out the rectangle black surounding him.) My character's a little bitmap image. Is there no component that can solve this problem? I.e. surround itself around the bitmap? Question 2: HOw do I load an image onto the form?
  9. Now where are my manners? I was in such a hurry I didn't say much about myself. I can't help it, this is just such an awesome 'site! My name's Tristan (that's the 't' part). The rest of my member name's just abbreviations of my full name. I'm a first-year computer science (Software Engineering) student. I'm currently doing two C++ courses (one is actually really just C) and Delphi. I write my first exams in October. I want to ultimately become a graphics programmer (3D animation)
  10. Hi all. I've managed to completely screw up MS Office on my PC. Well, here goes nothing. So I came across these Java demonstrations on the 'net and decided to download them. They're great! They show all the features of this awesome programming language! So after all those applets, colour, and animation demos, I closed the file. Then I noticed this sign down in the task bar: Information message dialog : Low Disk Space You are running our of disk space in Local Disk (C:). To free space on this drive by deleting old or ununecessary files click here... So of course I click there (in the message bar). Then I get this: Disk Cleanup Disk cleanup is calculating how much space you will be able to free on Local Disk(C:). This may take a few minutes to complete... About 20 seconds later, I got the Disk cleanup window. I don't want to delete any of my files, so I decide to close it. About a second later, I get this Warning message: Low disk space Your Windows drive has only 106MB of free disk space available. It is recommended to have at least a minimum of 200MB free on your Windows drive to ensure system reliability. You can free even more disk space by removing programs that you do not use. Would you like to do that now? I click on "NO" So, without thinking much, I decide to move the entire contents of Microsoft Office to the D folder (I didn't think much that MS Word, Excell, Powerpoint, FrontPage, heck, even WordPad, rely on MS Office!). OH NO! Now none of the above-mentioned MS Office programs would run! So I moved another program from the C drive to the D drive, to save up some disk space. Then I moved MS Office back to the C-Drive, but too late! I still couldn't run any of its programs! Then whenever I tried opening MS Word, I got a message telling me that there were some files missing from the location where they were supposed to be. No problem, I just moved those files there (after many attempts at finding MSWORD9.OLB, and other files!). Now I'm stuck, because the other programs aren't as easy to fix! I'll start with the most important ones: 1. MS Powerpoint: When I want to create a new presentation, I can no longer use their templates to do so. Whenever I click on any one, there's no longer a preview picture - it says that I should 'Click OK to install additional templates and create a new file'. When I do click on OK, it attempts to install Office 2000, and says that 'the feature I'm trying to use is on a CD ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the Microsoft Office premium disk and click OK'. When I do click on OK 'Microsoft Powerpoint can't display the template used in the document. Microsoft Powerpoint cannot install the necessary files due to Windows installer error 1603.' I'm indundated with all sorts of errors, but I think this is the most significant: 'The path or file name for C:\Documents and Settings\private\Microsoft Office\Office\Gesture.pot is invalid. Please check that the path and file name are correct.' I've searched for *.pot files, but haven't had any luck there. How can I fix this? Anybody know of how this problem can be fixed? 2. MS FrontPage: Doesn't function at all. It only opens up, then thats that. I can't perform any operations at all. Say I click on 'File -> New', then I get the instalation messages again. The MS games don't even play any longer. They're no longer on the Accessories Games folder. I've had to search for and find them, but then Windows tries to install various files that I don't know of. So as it stands, MS Office has its files all over my C drive, and thus it can't run its programs properly. I don't know how to fix this problem. For eg. in MS Powerpoint, the design templates are missing! I'm being prompted to reinstall them again.
  11. Oops, sorry. Wrong forum! New here, apologies...
