Company policy is to lock everything down to a degree where it's next to impossible to do anything. So to use some tools we use on a regular basis (which were written in Delphi using stone tablets, back in the day!) we need to Admins on the PC's, which is at odds with IT security! So I am trying to run (I have managed to install it!) one of the Applications on a Windows 8 Laptop... I know I managed to get it running at one stage but how????
I believe Win8 also had compatability mode for older programs. Right-click on the executable and go into properties, or something, and chose compatibility mode and set to Win XP or earlier??? (or something like that - I don't remember Win8's exact steps).

After a handful of missed deliveries things will change.

Last weekend, I had a gaming weekend with some friends.
Three TV's and three Playstations and Borderlands 3 for the three of us!
The intro movie featured some cool music, just like Borderlands 2, again by The Heavy.
So that's a great intro of the game weekend and a cool outro of the work week by making it SOTW
I can really recommend the games as well, if you're into hilarious shooters with rather dark humor
Nice! Here's something back at you. I can't believe I didn't catch this greatness before this week! Banana-Na-Na. Never heard of Technohead before, and their 'I Wanna Be A Hippy' is also off the charts!
If you know anything about pinewood derby races...
I've got a laptop that is connected to a video projector. I have an adapter that converts the laptop's HDMI signal to the projector's VGA signal. The laptop is collecting data from the race track and displaying it on the laptop's monitor, which is then mirrored on the video projector. All that works fine.
What I also want to do is put a video camera (e.g., GoPro) in place to show the cars as they come across the finish line. How can I get the output of the video camera to the laptop (so that it can also be shown on the video projector)?
