Hi All,

today I have something new for you: SenseControl.
With this very small app you can enable/disable SenseUI with one tap.

You will get two shortcuts (which you can use with SmartBoot my free boot manager for WM) in your start menu to easily enable and disable SenseUI.

You can edit the registry key to your SenseUI installation with any registry editor under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SenseControl\Reg_K ey".
Initially this key has the value "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Today\Items \Sense". If your SenseUI is installed in another RegKey then please change it accordingly!

Additionally I provide the source code of this app on my homepage.

Please download this app from here.

This app sure seems to have advantages. Can it be used independently of Smartboot or do I need to install this app as well? And is it necessary to edit the registry key?

Works on my Verizon Touch Pro2, running MR2 Rom fixed by Mr X, I did have to do the Regedit to get it to work though.

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SenseControl\Reg_K ey" initially has "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Today\I tems \Sense", and I changed it to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Today\I tems \HTC Sense"

Code uses SendMessage. It should be modified to use PostMessage
SendMessage waits for all windows to handle the message before moving on to the next instruction.

If not all windows handle it properly, which can happen with Sense 2.5, then the app will never terminate. Sense 2.5 will still shutdown, but that app will still be running in the background.

This can make it so that you cannot use the app twice without restarting or killing the process. It might eventually time out.

I ran into this with my weather city editor, using nearly identical code to stop sense. It would completely hang for some users.

Switching to PostMessage means all the windows will still get the message, but the app will not wait for it to be processed. So, it will terminate. Then it can be started again.
