Launcher Updates

Well, this post is about what has been happening lately, and I thought I'd post a quick update.

Launcher PRO V3.0 has been out for a few days now. Got some report that High DPI isn't working, so I'll definitely fix that in the next build.

I still receive a few activation code requests, so I'll probably create a video guide. The thing is, once you got access to my site, you can do everything yourself without my help. Input the request code, generate activation code, download, and activate Launcher. That is it.

Some browser apparently don't show the code immediately, like IE/Chrome/FF does. If this happens to you, wait for at least 15 minutes, go back to the page, and you should see it, ready for download.

Launcher Premium - as stated in my other post, is no longer supported and I stopped generating activation codes for it. It is what it is.

Using JRE x64 -  I almost always use x64 now a days. It's really sweet on RAM allocation and usage. To use 64-bit JRE, download the 64-bit version from Oracle and install it. Find the location of the app where the folder "jre" is. Create a new folder named "jre_x64" and copy all the cotents of JRE/JDK to this folder. NOTE: Ensure there is no environment settings for _java_options. Some apps automatically set this, but it's more trouble than it's worth. It's a bad advise that is widely used.

Response Time - My email responses are delayed by two days. I'm trying to catch up as fast as I can but with the holidays and family around, they take priority over anything else.

Fake Receipts - well, this is really disappointing. I'm getting tons of them now, where as before, I see one or two here and there. I'm genuinely surprised and stumped with this trend. I mean WHY??? I seriously don't know how to deal with this and it's taking me a lot of time verifying.

I have a degree in digital forensic...just kidding, I'm just a guy who knows his way around MS Paint ;). Believe me, I know how to detect manipulated images. If you're paying some guy to create fake receipts for you, you should check your priorities.

Lastly...Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!! Enjoy your family and the holiday. See you next year, especially if you don't drink and drive.

Launcher PRO 3.0 - Available this weekend

All-New Launcher PRO 3.0 - Available this weekend. See for details...

E-Sys Launcher 2.0 - End of Life

Launcher 2.0 Premium and PRO has reached end-of-life phase. No more updates, no more fixes.

The past couple of months, I've spent significant amount of time modifying Launcher PRO, when I should have never bothered. I just wasted numerous sleepless nights for naught. It has been proven, once again, that an enterprising entity would go to such great lengths to earn a buck, so much so, that they shamelessly stole and reuse my code. What's sad is that some people actually support these individuals.

I wrote Launcher Premium for enthusiasts, for personal-use, to learn coding, not for someone to resell it. It was free, but people manage to sell it. I'm not going to let these individuals earn money at my expense.

And precisely for this reason, that I am terminating Launcher 2.0. There will be no update to Launcher Premium. There will never be  Launcher Premium 3.0. It's done, it's over.
