I have some extra spaces around some of the select categories on the main screen when running WPI. Any ideas what might be causing this?
As you can see in the image below, these spaces are not consistent, and appear at the bottom and top of different categories.

Under SAN Related, the space is at the bottom, and under Optional it appears at the bottom and the top, but in the Top category (not shown) the space does not appear in either location.

I have the answer to your issue.

BUT! let me remind you WPI is NOT free for business use.

I also urge NO other members here or anywhere else to help this gentleman until the use of his WPI is sorted out.

(Technically you would be helping with warez)

Correct, but it is free for Non-Profit and non-business use according to the License.txt file, not to mention you are just assuming that this is in use for any business.
This is actually inside a VM environment I run at home as a lab for testing all kinds of stuff. I have a small SAN environment so I can expand the storage as needed instead of having to grow my computer all the time.

3. WPIW is not free for Business or Corporate use.

3a. Non-profit and charity organizations are free to use it.

====================================================

The above screen shot is from v8.6.3, so should I downgrade to v8.5.6?
Could it be an issue with the theme I am using? It is the Server theme... I will try out the Win7 Theme tonight and see if it clears up.

Upload your userfiles and themes folders in a archive and pm them to me. I want to look into this.

Thank you. but that does not help me.
Also, I did not have this issue when running WPI v 8.4.6, it started when I upgraded to v8.6.3

hmm I don't think I have since i upgraded to 8.6, i will give that a try.

EDIT: Just tried that and it still has the spacing. Gonna grab a fresh copy of v8.6.3 and try over, maybe something happened when I copied it over last time.

Ok that didn't work. I tried different settings on the Theme Layout style, and the Vertical looks fine, but both Horizontal settings have the spacing.
If it helps, this is on Windows 2008R2

You can have Win7 and Server Themes inside your folder!

Choose first Server Theme and choose your custumization and after select Win7 Theme.
It's done!

Thanks a ton!

Yep, and both themes have been inside my theme folder, I just had the theme set to Server, and I tested setting it to Win7 to see if it was a theme issue (the spacing) :)
I like the background you posted :)

Ahhh missed that one sorry m8.

It needs to be saved with the right encoding.
