I bought VA-Adjust at Guildford last year, and have been very pleased with it.
Two things have annoyed me though: one is the two pointer problem when running in windowed mode. I did experiment with the CallWin32 solution, but having read the warnings about non-compatibility I chickened out. I was therefore VERY glad to read a comment that you were trying to test a build with it included. That is great news, and I hope you succeed.
That provoked me to register on these forums so I could point out my other annoyance, and the solution, in the hope it can also be incorporated in any new build.
The VABattery application v1.23 (5th Feb 2004) has a bug in that when asked to display the *time* left on the iconbar it gets it wrong! The actual calculation is incorrect - the original is currently displaying '1h 1m' yet my fixed version is displaying '1 h 46 m', which is much nearer what XP calculates.
The last ELSE in PROC_ which is currently
should be
ELSE:V%=V%/Y%:W%=(V%/60):B%=W% DIV 60:W%=W% MOD 60
to set B% (the Hours) and W% (the minutes) correctly,
otherwise the Minutes are (obviously) wrong!
I would also ask that a space is added between the hours number and "h" and the minutes number and the "m" in the iconbar display, as it makes it much more readable.
I hope that helps fix this silly little problem.
An improvement to !VABattery which would also be useful is to enable the warning threasholds to be set by he user - 25% and 10% may not be very useful with modern longer-lasting batteries.
