Updating TLS versions &.net runtimes in legacy applications

While this isn't python related I think it could help some users because I see questions about almost every kind of application come across this forum. Users don't always want to upgrade to the latest and greatest and often times they just cant. These are things I have come across for Windows Media ...

Re: Hide mouse cursor?

If you don't figure this out as an alternative you could use EG to move the mouse to a particular position like the corner of the screen to get it out of the way

DarkSky for your weather applications after WU shutdown

I know there was some mention of a few plugins breaking after weather underground shut down their API. I have seen a few other developers bring up dark sky net as an alternative. Here is a link www.darksky.net

Re: Pulse-Eight CEC +

I finally have a PC that sleeps correctly for the most part. Would it be possible to use CEC+ to only wake my PC when I press the sleep button on a remote or keyboard but make sure the PC does not wake for system events like when it wakes to record something or run a scheduled task?

Re: Screensaver problem

I'm wondering if when windows starts your screensaver it also starts to turn things off to save power, like your USB inputs. If your manually starting a screensaver before windows power saving settings kick in, then things like your usb ports might not be put to sleep. I know you said EG still regis...

Re: Eventghost does no longer start (after Windows update)

I would bet someone on the MDL forums can get windows sandbox into consumer editions of windows 10. At one point I had Hyper-V installed on my Windows Home Server 2011 box. I think its a lot like what KG described where they just find the right cabinet files and extract them. I remember editing the ...

There are a few alternatives for Android at least but the app cost a few bucks for the full versions. I believe unified remote has a free version but here is a list of a few alternatives. Sorry for the cheesy site. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/android- ... c-remotely

Re: Eventghost does no longer start (after Windows update)

The truth is you can probably update eg and be just fine. I like to be way too cautious when giving people advice in situations like these though. In the meantime can you show me a screenshot of the autostart portion of your tree? There might be some plugins in there I'm familiar with
