LCDHost Alpha 27

Whats new in LCDHost 0.0.27:

  • Data linking bug fixed
  • Updated Qt to 5.0.2
  • Windows version now compiled with MSVC
  • Replaced libusb with libusbx
  • Fixed hidapi handle leak on Windows
  • Added standard layouts to google code repository
  • …and lots of bug fixes in general

The autoupdater will get it for you, or download it from the LCDHost homepage.

Qt 5 isn’t binary compatible with Qt 4, so it’s essential that A26 is completely uninstalled.
Take a backup of your layouts directory, uninstall, remove any remaining traces of A26 and install A27.
You will need the Visual C++ 2010 runtime installed (MSVCR100.DLL).
If alpha 27 doesn’t work for you, old versions of LCDHost are still available:

  1. Net monitoring broken, autostart still doesn’t work, and “°” character (celsius) appears as a square, … 😕

    Great app, but the last two updates are failures for me, so I’m keeping 0.25 version for now.

  2. I meant silent autostart, sorry.

  3. Trouble with build 27:
    Norton Internet Security (NIS) complains after installation:
    “Suspicious.Cloud.7.F detected”
    and isolates lh_simpletranslator.dll, lh_json.dll

    After installation LCDHost runs but the Monitoring plug-in is missing. A bar and text using values from Core Temp does not show. With the missing plug-in this is no surprise.

    Re-installation of build 26 solved the problem.

    Is MSI over-suspicious or may I assist in debugging?

    Best regards

    ps: I use LCDHost for quite some time for my G19 and am very happy with it. Thanks very much for the good work!
