    Hi all,

    I'm the developer of this utility. I'm glad to see that you like it! I saw this forum when checking out some of the recent referring URLs and I just wanted to address the concerns over the application's TCP status in process explorer.

    The .NET Framework 2.0 includes a feature called the "Application Framework", this feature makes development easier by automatically handling some of the more tedious (and boring!) programming tasks required for certain program behavior.

    The framework was enabled for Flip 3D Activator to make it easier to enforce a "single instance" of the utility. (To avoid any mess from having two or more Flip 3D Activators trying to activate flip 3d)

    Enabling this framework enables something called remoting (not just for this reason, but for others as well), which is a way for processes to communicate with each other. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is through local-only TCP connections (hence the "listening"). It is listening for a new instance of the application to tell the current instance that a new instance was launched, just in case we need to handle that for some reason. (We don't, other than telling the new instance to exit.)

    I hope this clears it up!


    That makes sense, thanks for letting us know Noty.

    No problem, and please let me know if you have any suggestions, or if you notice any quirky behavior when running the utility with Windows 7. (Which, I might just add since I'm here on the Win7 forums anyways - I'm extremely excited about.)

    How about older windows style cascade.
    For god sakes - someone fix lack of right click on minimized multiple instances of a program and selecting cascade.
    Example I open 150 windows of Chrome and they are grouped on the taskbar under one icon - Previously I just right click and then click cascade and all of the Chrome windows cascade on screen. Under 7 it's only option is the nasty visual perusal and then clicking and maximizing ONE at a time........ AHHHH!!!!!!!!!
    Lack of the feature makes me wonder who at MS was smoking the crack.

    oh... and I should specify wouldn't it have been smart w/ the emphasis on gestures to hold down your mouse button over the taskbar icon of all the minimized instances then drag it up - cascading all the instances?
    ...same goes for say a finger on touchscreen making same gesture.

    I can't state how
    MS has made me over this BS.
