I'm pretty sure a large amount of the files could be safely eliminated but any project that requires that much support just to create a basic app is going to struggle to gain traction. The complexity of having to deal with all of that for a simple application is ridiculous.
I use (and have been using VS 2015), but I NEVER generate MS projects. I fully expect new project = ONE file! Or at least no more than four (to include makefiles, etc.). That web application has more files and folders than I have in my personal framework that I have been building for a quarter century! Including all of the "projects" that I have built using it.
Something is wrong with that. Glad I don't use it.
I have a docking station that is plugged through USB (USB 3.0 pro dock from Lenovo).
I do have a couple of extra displays connected there.
In order to have a taskbar in all the displays (windows 7) I have a small program that make a copy of the taskbar to appear in all the displays.
I would like to load automatically at the beginning (boot) this program only if the docking station is connected (external keyboard, mouse, displays and network are the devices that are always connected there).
Do you think this could be done without programming?
Definitely a non-coding question then Probably... maybe... not quite sure how though. It would be quite easy to write a launcher though - just detect the number of screens and if it's more than one launch the taskbar duplicator. System.Windows.Forms.Screen.AllScreens will do the trick
What you are using to duplicate the task bar? I tried several programs a while back but couldn't find one I'm entirely happy with. Thx
check out scheduled tasks. There are a LOT of options there for triggers - including system-level events - that you might be able to pull off what you want. click Start, type 'task schedule' and you're off.
