PassGenWin, XorCryptWin and RandFileGen
« on: December 22, 2015, 03:38:13 PM »
Hello, I need help getting my open-source projects tested. Bug reports and code improvement suggestions are most welcome.
Right now I only have access to a Windows XP 32-bit machine and I would like to know how my programs run and look on newer versions of Windows (7, 8, 10).

PassGenWin is a random password generator.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/passgenwin/

XorCryptWin and RandFileGen are distributed together as encryption software.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xorcryptwin/

I would like to get these projects beyond the point of "toys" and I believe PassGenWin is close enough to maturity.

What concerns me most right now are possible bugs that I haven't found. Another thing is that the projects are a bit too reliant on Pelles C, and I fear that porting them to another IDE/toolchain will be a pain if it ever needs to be done.

Would anybody be willing to test these programs in Windows 7, 8 or 10 and post back screenshots, please?

To moderators: I would like this thread to be moved to the Projects developed with Pelles C board. Thanks.

Nevermind, I didn't see the "Move topic" button.

The both look good and work well on Windows 7.
Great work.

I'm glad to read that, I was a bit concerned about the red X button in PassGenWin looking weird in newer Windows.

You are right. The icon image is not scaled very well. Maybe use the × U+00D7 Alt+0215 Multiplication character on a normal button. If you want the text red you could subclass it.

That seems like a good idea however I don't know how "subclassing" would help change the text color. Is this the subclassing you are talking about? (Otherwise please provide a new link.)

Also do you happen to use TRNGs? I intend to code Winsock and Serial plugins for both my programs in order to fetch random data from TRNG devices, and it would help if someone could test that too.
