Enhancements/Bugs Fixed

  • Version 2.2.1: Fixed bug that caused program to fail to detect the absence of Windows component psapi.dll on older versions of Windows.
  • Version 2.2: Worked around a bug in recent versions of Windows that prevented the Window Watcher from reliably determining the owner of a window.
  • Version 2.1: Can now display on-screen location of selected windows, including hidden windows.
  • Version 2.0: Program now uses Explorer-like interface to allow you to browse main and child windows. Additional information about each window is now displayed. Also, you can search through Windows' list of on-screen title bar texts, looking for titles that contain a selected text.
  • Version 1.7.1: Fixed bug that caused "Error 5" when program started.
  • Version 1.7: Allows you to search window titlebar text. Also displays whether each window is visible, and enabled.
  • Version 1.5: Will display the window creator when running under Windows 2000.
  • Version 1.2: Reports the name of the program creating each window.
  • Version 1.1: Properly responds to the "Hide windows w/o titlebar text" checkbox. Previous versions ignored this setting. The Refresh button is also now enabled when the program starts.
