Minor issue when running an virtual XP session on Windows 7, your taskbar displays on top of the full screen session.


Other than this bug, your app works great.

If you can let me know some details about the window which ZBar needs to hide behind, I can change the app so that it does that.

I need to know the window class and title for the virtual XP session.

I know of two apps which can get this for you - one is my Stickies app (go to attach a note and you'll see a list of windows) and the other is Winspector.

Can you help me get that info please?

It did not. Looks like the class is different each time it starts. I started is a couple of times if that helps.

Windows XP Mode - Windows Virtual PC

Ack, that's frustrating about the window class.

Is the title always the same? Would it be possible to change it, or will all XP mode windows have that same title?

It is possible to change the name before the dash, but the name after the dash I don't think can be changed.

The window title "Windows XP Mode - Windows Virtual PC" is the default and most people will not change it.

Ok, I've changed strategy to match the window title, not the class. Can you download the file above again please, and see whether that nails it?
