Added a check box to main window for silent mode. When
checked, the program won't beep to signal that a drive is
ready. It will still restore the window (if it is
minimized), place the window on top of other ones, and
flash its taskbar button. This feature may be helpful in
a work environment since, if the program beeped, it may
disturb your nearby colleagues.
Renamed the "Show Tip of the Day" command on
the System Menu to Show Program Notes since users may
want to read more than one item in a day and the text is
more extensive than is suitable for tips.
Pressing the "Topic:" button of the Program
Notes window opens the "Choose a Topic" window.
This window now has a search feature. Topic names and
text are searched when the Find button is pressed.
You can now run only one instance of DriveReady at a time.
Running more than one instance simultaneously may result
in all instances beeping at once.
Added a "Check for Disks" button. Pressing this
button causes this program to check for disks in all
drives whose type has been determined.
The "Tip of the Day" window will display at its
first tip for a new version of this program. Previously,
if you used a prior version of this program, it retained
its display state and tip index.
This program is now a shareware program and its one-time
registration fee is $4.99.
Added a System Menu command for registering DriveReady. (Its
shortcut keystroke is Ctrl+R.) Selecting this command
will open DriveReady's window for registration and its
web page (if this program is not registered). From this
web page, you can click on the Buy Now button to navigate
to a web page for paying through PayPal.
DriveReady now displays whether a disk is in a drive
except for drives A and B, network drives and unknown
drives. For drives A and B, periodic checking for a disk
would produce a distracting noise. For network drives,
checking would result in unnecessary network traffic.
If DriveReady's window is minimized when a new or newly-ready
drive is detected, this window will be restored. This
window will also be placed on top of other windows.
The "Choose a Topic" window for selecting a
"Tip of the Day" by topic-name now allows for
sorting by name or number.
