"Wyatt Says..." is a collection of articles by Wyatt O'Day talking about wyDay products and the things we've learned along the way.
I’ve gotten a few e-mails about the wyUpdate source being corrupt. It wasn’t. It just appeared that way if you used any decompressor other than 7-zip. This was because I used LZMA compression for the file. Only 7-zip understands that brand of compression.
At any rate, I’ve uploaded the newly zipped wyUpdate source code that should work with generic compression programs (WinZip, WinRAR, etc.).
I’ve also been testing wyBuild and wyUpdate with Windows 7 – it looks nice. I especially love the subtle touches to the taskbar buttons. The background adapts to the color of the wyBuild icon when the mouse hovers over it:
On these pre-release versions of Windows 7 both wyBuild and wyUpdate run perfectly.
