I need someone to test something simple with the attached copy of TheGun.Exe on XP.

The program appeared to have a problem with the file open and save dialogs and in some instances it would open a second dialog after the selected one was closed, I have it tested on win9x, NT4 and win2k but I don't have access to win XP.

I have rewritten the file dialog code to avoid the problem and it is working OK on all of the version I have available, I just need a few people with XP to see if the file dialogs work correctly.

It's Ok with me, but What's new in this version TheGun.exe?
It seems nothing diffrent with the version, which is in the masm32v7.0 package.

Thanks for the feedback, its useful when keeping an app up to date. Changes are obscure and small, from memory I had to add the code to prevent it trying to save read only files, I added some extra filters on the file open and save dialogs, chased down a bug in the dialog code that only happened on win XP and rewrote it rather than debug another mess up in Windows code.

Then I further chased removing some extra code so that the size did not increase too much but only found 2 instructions that I could remove so I did not gain much there. It ended up 1 section larger with the extra code so when I get some spare time, I will further optimise it to get it back down to 6k from the current 6.5k.

I am afraid, you write TheGun in ASSEMBLER? Thought you are a REAL MAN... :(

Maybe stryker can give you some Win32HEX lessons...
