At last I've managed to run it. But what can it do now? I can see five shortcuts (btw, nice icons. Nostalgic.): control panel and command line, which are working, Periscope, which is not
, and two folders. I can go into these folders and back, but I cannot go anywhere else and do something else. Waiting for the 0.6...
I am going to fix up shell mode tonight (in a few minutes I'll start, in fact) and then .6 will be ready for release - which will probably happen tomorrow.
Until then, if Periscope's explorer mode is broken as you say, I'll explain how to use shell mode (which is what you are in):
In the Periscope folder, you will find a folder called "PRS" - think of this as the "Start Menu" folder in explorer. Whatever you put in here, including directories, will end up replicated in Periscope Launcher.
You can put shortcuts, exe files, documents, folders - whatever you want in here. This basically acts as the "start menu" for Periscope, and it is something of a hybrid, functionally, between Program Manager, Workplace Shell, and Explorer.
Again, I will post here when I have an update.
Edit: I finished the requisite work tonight, it was much less broken than I thought, so it's all done and uploaded. I also uploaded dependency packages for 9x and NT, so it's easy for everyone!
I will make an EXE build sometime, but I am unsure when.
Ah yes, I forgot to mention, there is ONE known bug - filenames with parenthesis seem to not get along with it. Nothing bad happens, but they get cut off upon trying to open them. I haven't had a chance to track that down yet.
I made an EXE build for all of you who don't feel like installing the Depdencies packages:
Note that I adapted the code to run from EXE instead of PY really quickly, so even though I tested it and it was working for me, it might not work for you. If you encounter a problem, please tell me and in the meantime you can try the script release.
