Looks great so far Lazarus,
However I can't use the documenter tool Its says I need the XmlDiffPatch tool

But the XmlDiffPatch says I need .net 1.1.4322
Xmldiff tool

So I ended up here ... tools.aspx
Trying to recompile the msi to run in .net 4 to avoid the .net check
I couldn't find the "CustomAction" and that's when I gave up

Any chance this can either not use xml diff or use come provided with a more recent version that doesn't need .net 1

Hey Harv

Due to the check on loading I have come across some issues where the window manager fails to load and returns an error if there is no external internet access or the port is blocked. The next time I package Perspectives I would like to include your window manager but it is only feasible if there is no update check on each load. Would you do a "static" or "commercial" version that has this taken out?

Sorry guys, I was checking this post, but didn't realize it had spilled onto a second page!

First, the requirement for XmlDiffPatch will be removed in the next release, so for those having issues with that, the easiest thing to do is wait.

Second, the check for during start up. I will be making this an optional feature in the next version, and it will be much less intrusive (i.e. it will gracefully fail when there is no internet connection, and will have a setting to turn it off).

If you need any further features beyond that, let me know and I'll try to accommodate it. I should have a new release of all the flow tools ready early next week.
Flow OLAP - thinking outside the cube.
