Hi drakefu,

Thank you so much. It's really great now.

How about adding the app to sites like Softpedia? I think lots of people may find it useful.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the nice feedback. I might add it at some point (some ZZZ's to catch up first...)
Also note that the display is currently capped at 99 due to system tray space constraints. I didn't spend much time thinking about this so far, though I might come up with something in the future.

Complimenting a good job is a pleasure.

You might want to try SysTrayMeter (up to 4 digits).
SysTrayMeter - Download

I'm attaching my INI file (used on Win 7 Classic Look).

Thanks again.

That's some tight coding! But I guess it must have taken more than an afternoon to optimize it that much

By the way, the installer you linked to has some extra adware bundled in. I've found the untainted, tiny download at: http://freewaregenius.com/wp-content...sTrayMeter.zip

Too bad it seems to be abandoned.

Sorry about the link. Just made a quick search.

The developer has vanished. Too bad.

Could you please update in this post?
Here you go... The updated version is tcount105.exe.
It should now poll the running process list in a much cleaner way.

Index of /files/release/
Nice little program. I also use it to see if processes remain running after closing/terminating an application.

Thanks drakefu.

Hi, I have released a new version (tcount116.exe) that includes the following:

- support for 3-digit figures (new rendering method)
- lower CPU load
- smaller filesize
- white text option: if the read-only attribute is set
(I didn't want to implement a full-fledged prefs file just for this setting)


Index of /files/release/

Hi drakefu,

Thanks again. Keep up the good work.
I can't access Index of /files/release/ now. I'll try again later.

Hello again,

I've just downloaded 'tcount116'. Thank you so much.

I do believe that your app may gain popularity if publicised in the right places.
Please don't consider the following suggestions ungrateful. My intention is good.

1) If possible, reduce also the RAM usage. tcount116 and Process Hacker use around 9MB; - tcount should use much less.
2) If possible, use larger font for 2 digits and smaller font for 3 digits.
3) IMO, a small INI file for background and foreground colors could be a good idea.
4) How about changing the name to 'Process Counter' or 'Task Counter'?

Best wishes.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll see what I can do.
