Is it possible to change font?

Back to the subject of your EXE compression. I assume you have used UPX + a tool to modify the stub so that default "upx -d" can't decompress the EXE.

This is not only a lame thing to do, it's also against the license of UPX - I suggest you re-read it, and either find another exepacker or stop doing this modification.

Thanks for your suggestion, i will consider to replace the packer.

Why not leave it as an option for the end-user? It's easier to use whatever exe compressor of choice than to decompess... it does seem like you don't understand the performance degradation an exe packer brings.

There is only 2 characters in the file. A 'f' and the ASCII 232 character.

Notepad displays the second character as the ASCII 130 character.

?(232) and ?(130) are quite different here... but really, who would expect a crappy OS like 9x or standard tools like winzip to handle these properly? I think (but might likely be wrong) that WinRAR handles these properly... at least NT OS'es handle files/dirs with non-7bit ascii quite fine (like, duh).

comrade:
I don't know if different language platform can affect the hilight effect, but I can affirm some font will not support in NoteXPad hilight mode, in my Chinese version XP, it support Counier New font in hilight, u can try another font for it, because I use the method of Iczelion and richedit control for syntax hilighting, so some feature can not be implemented perfectly.
Maybe someday I use my own edit control, so everything will be OK!

It isn't a big deal to me, just interesting.
I have heard that versions newer than 98 are more stable, etc. I am happy with Win 98. You get the best
of both worlds. The only code I found that didn't run right was some that showed a drive light for the floppy
drive.

What still bothers me a bit is this.

Each new Windows version seems to reduce the choices of what customers want.
Kind of like someone else deciding for me what's best.

Take care.

Nice editor.

How can I relace my Notepad editor with the NoteXPad editor without renaming to "Notepad.exe" and copy it to the Windows directory?
Is there any registry value which specifies the path to default text editor?
Or environment variable (like the TEMP or TMP variables)?

Thanks

Why not change the editor under file types and associate NoteXpad with the extensions you want it to open.

There must be some reason why MS only allow a limited amount of bytes for notepad.

XP Notepad can open up a 6 meg more or less file but it take forever and it will.

It's a trick in there someplace somewhere other wise why would they waste their time when they can do what ever they please if that the case.

I always wonder about that. Many many old ASM example out do MS Notepad but it never made MS try anything much difference.

Anyway, I'll check out NoteXPad soon. I can't wait to have edit control finally on the programmer side. But i bet the simple MS Notepad has the most serious place somewhere somehow.

Just wondering
