    excuse me..sorry for posting in old thread, I'm getting Net framework error message each time i run the 0.4.2 version, if i click continue in the error message box then the utility will open normally.

    edit: Avast anti virus also think this utility doing suspicious action, just adding to the avast ignore list.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I'm getting this error in all of the 0.0.4 versions now for some reason (not in the debugger though).
    Try using the 0.0.3 version that is in the first post in this thread for now while I look into it.

    Sorry for the long delay.
    Please check out this build and let me know if the exception still occurs.

    I tested it on Windows 8 Pro x64 and it seems to work fine too.

    It just overlooked a minor thing. I was checking to see if one of the default properties was empty and not checking to see if it was null, which it was prior to any user defined codes being added. Thus the null exception.

    TESTING TIME !!!

    I wrote a little app to compliment AltWinCodes called QuickPhrases.
    It's the same as AltWinCodes except it allows you to enter phrases that can be inserted into anything you are editing by clicking the phrase. Works the same.
    You can even use altWinCodes (if you have it open) to insert special characters into your QuickPhrases when you are editing them !! How cool is that !!!

    Let me know what you think.

    I love to eat chicken sauce with every meal.®

    Hey, it works! Thats awesome


    Not sure what I did, cant seem to replicate it; it pasted the phrase over and over like 30 times per second until the message box was full the first time I tried it. Maybe it was just me. Working fine now tho!

    I gave AltWinCodes to our new Customer Service rep and she asked if I had one to do simple phrases that may be used a lot when writing marketing or customer letters.
    There is really no limit to the size of the phrase. but it's not really meant for large amounts of text.

    Here is the next version, it fixes some anchoring on resize.
