Re: New Theme Creation Questions

There used to be something from the authors of StyleXP, not sure if that's still around / working,
StyleBuilder was that name according to a quick google search.

Re: Modern Windows Apps Are Ugly!

Is it just me, or do many Windows 10 apps just look ugly? So I load up my virtual machine of Windows 98 SE and head to the Address Book - looks fine to me, very handy. I load up People on Windows 10 - the app looks ugly. Windows scrapped Address Book, went to Contacts, then went to People (app). Us...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

Looking at the logging and the snippet you pasted, the open flags do not match at all.
Good luck on your endeavors finding the problem, I am not going to play a game of 'find the actual code'.

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

That test failing on ROS would essentially confirm that a bug exists in ROS in the API call NtOpenFile(). How should it be formally reported if confirmed ? There must be something lost if your test worked in ROS. The only obvious difference between the pseudocode and my test in Delphi would be the ...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I'm currently looking at detecting ROS and activating that workaround in a custom cygwin1.dll since I'm more familiar with that code. Now I just need a clean and accurate way to identify ROS using API calls that exist in Windows and ROS. We don't have an api to detect ROS, precisely to not have peo...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I actually did write a test for this, but since I do not really do much programming in C I did it under a tool I'm more familiar with which was Delphi. The test binary produced different results under Win10 than ROS, but in the end it showed that was not an issue with validation. --blub-- ps: You u...

or find a test like that in the existing test suite

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

I wonder if someone could help me build a small workaround for this problem. Basically what happens is this.. The library(cygwin) calls NtOpenFile using a path and the call works completely and the application gets back a File Handle. The library then it tries to reopen that same file by calling Nt...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

The failure I hit results from how Cygwin emulates the posix functions pread() and pwrite(). Since the Posix definition of those functions requires that the filehandles offset (or file pointer) not be moved so that other processes are unaffected by the use of pread/pwrite, what? do you expect that ...

Re: Help diagnosing a problem with cygwin/samba on ROS

If you run this in a vm debugging should be a lot easier ;)
Check that your structs / pointers are properly aligned?

And if you can modify the kernel (but for some weird reason not view the logging) you can always change error codes around so you can see which path causes it :)

Re: RAPPS forked out

I think the RAPPS should be forked out from Reactos as a package manager. Sooner or later it will be meaningless as a software that has only ReactOS compatible apps. Splitting it off may widen it's audience and indirectly contribute that it develops faster > it can still be part of the ReactOs proj...
