WPC 3.5 and Microsoft Virtual Desktop Manager

Postby rhocycler » Wed Mar 25, 2009 1:52 am

Microsoft Virtual Desktop Manager (MSVDM) (microsoft multi desktop manager from XP powertoys) seems to somehow assign and remember a background for each virtual desktop.
(In fact, MSVDM seems to do that by storing 4 .bmp images (1 for each desktop) )

When you tell it to use "Nuonsoft WPC Wallpaper", it does copy the current wallpaper as MSVDM-DesktopN.bmp (N=0 to 3). The WPC cycling still works, but is not that useful as when switching 'virtual' desktop the wallpaper is overridden by one of the stored MSVDM-Desktop image.

Any idea of a workaround ?

Cheers.

No workaround needed. Wallpaper Cycler 3.5 has a feature called "Post cycling script" that you can use for the Microsoft Powertool multidesktop application. See http://nuonsoft.com/help/wpc_3_5_0_97/s ... er_Cycling

Ahem... Thanks.

Can't believe the solution was already provided and so easy to implement. Should have more faith :mrgreen:

Cheers.
