any devs had a look into the code yet? i've been following iContact for a good while now and am anxious to see where this is gonna go.

i personally think the prog doesn't need much done to it at all, aside from adding more choices. choices rather than imposing needless bloating features just for the sake of it.

anyways, you're all a good bunch, much respect and keep up the good work (just don't f this up cos it's a lovely little app!)

hey ya'll, so i wanted to check on the code to start messing with it, but upon opening the vcproj (vs2005), i get:

The following error has occurred during XML parsing:

-----------------------
File: C:\Documents and Settings\maki\Desktop\iContact_v0.6_source\iContac t\iContact.vcproj
Line: 9
Column: 2
Error Message:
'9,00' violates enumeration constraint of '7.00 7,00 7.10 7,10 8.00 8,00'.
The attribute 'Version' with value '9,00' failed to parse.

The file 'C:\Documents and Settings\maki\Desktop\iContact_v0.6_source\iContac t\iContact.vcproj' has failed to load.

---------------------

any suggestions? i don't think it's an issue of it being an 08 proj as opposed to 05, and therefore not converting .... or is it?

but i can open it if i go to menu programs then icontact..it opens!!


I think it has something to do with me running a german PPC.

Program -files are stored in "/Programme", not in "/Program Files".

How can I patch it? I tried the reg-Key "Today/Keys/113" but it just works to the next soft-reset. After that it seems to be overwritten by your settings.

Edit:
Found it out myself, will perhaps help s.o. else:

I changed
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\:M SCONTACTS Changed String "1" value from "\Program Files\iContact.exe" to "\Programme\iContact.exe"

Microsoft doesn't like backward compatibility, even when the file structure is the same.
VS08 files CAN be opened in VS05, but you have to modify the version numbers.

Open the .sln file with a notepad and change:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00
to
Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 9.00

open the .vcproj file with notepad and change:

Version="9,00"
to
Version="8,00"

Opens with VS 2005 then, no problem.

hi,
Primarily excuse my English. Just wanted to know if there is possibility of restructuring iContact v03 because it is the version I like best pq not eat anything and is the perfect added to the system as improvement. The question of restructuring is because I have noticed that when you have many many contacts not showing all. Only the first letter draws omitting everything else and also is malfunctioning. If someone could fix this for the old version would be great. For my taste lo unico que le faltaria to this version (v03) would be the photo next to the name on the list and that when seleccionaras enter into details operating system like this today.

A greeting to all.

iContacts ROCKS!
I've been using it for a couple weeks now. Fast, and scrolls nice. (unless I'm thinking about the new scrolling feature of wm6.1) Anyway, I love it. I was looking for a way to integrate it with smartskey in the phone app. I found on a thread talking about RandomAccess (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ight=smartskey) that with a simple edit of the registry you can make iContact your default contact manager. Make sure after you edit you give the registry plenty of time to write before doing the soft reset. It works fine on my Wizard, but your mileage may vary.

Make a backup of your registry or at least the MSCONTACTS key before you edit. Edit at your own risk, yada, yada, yada...

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\:MSCONTACTS]
"0"="Contacts"
"1"="iContact.exe"

i'm running this on my Wizard.. and it's a wonderful application.. certainly much more comfortable than the regular WM contacts but only to people who use touch scrolling. when you scroll down using the D-PAD if you scroll continously it'll stick to the same screen and run the same contacts over and over again without flipping to the next page.. maybe that's something to change.. i prefer using the D-PAD to scroll thru my contacts.. i assume im not the only one.

thank you larna wonderful work
