Hello again thex,

I won't ask for your source code (enough others are doing that), but could you please clarify any limitations on the executable file.  You've generously offered to share it, but what rights would you like to retain?   For example, if working with colleagues can I transfer it from a USBdrive to other PC's, or vice versa (without downloading directly), keeping all files unaltered and giving you credit?

Might I recommend that you license it with "Creative Commons"?;

I'd hope that you choose an accommodating license, such as "Attribution Share Alike".

Cheers,
Ron

Amazing program Thex!  I just donated (even navigating the German language Paypal) :D

I've been promoting your work, and Boon Jin's, to teachers in my school board.  Due to restrictions on running exe's (that haven't been board licensed/approved) from network drives, the best solution has been to put all the software on a USB flash drive.

Is it possible (in v.0.6.0, or a future version) to put a "relative path" into the "run programme" field? (so it will connect to Smoothboard.exe, on the USBdrive, no matter what drive letter is assigned)

Is it possible to keep the current "Wiimote Connect" settings in a file on the USBdrive?  It seems to lose the settings with different PC's or different USBdrives (although maybe this is in how I distribute the files to teachers in other schools, as a zipped folder).

Thanks for all your work!

Amazing little program Thex!

I've been promoting your work, and Boon Jin's, to teachers in my school board.  I'm working on making "Interactive Whiteboard in a Box" kits for my colleagues, and trying to improve running the software from a USB flash drive.

Is it possible to keep the current "Wiimote Connect" settings in a file on the USBdrive?  It seems to lose the settings with different PC's or different sticks (although maybe this is in how I distribute the files to teachers in other schools, as a zipped folder).

Thanks for all your work!
