Any idea what has changed? This comparison of the page indicates removal of support for older OS’s, no other detail.

I couldn’t find anything regarding changes and I haven’t installed it yet.

While searching for the latest changes I discovered that there is a changelog.txt file in the TLH folder in “Program Files” (Win7) for v2.7. I’ll be installing this on the weekend and I’ll paste the 2.8 changes here for anyone that wants to see this info before they install.

Here ya go

Version (Release date: 2018-10-23)
– Added: Privilege elevation to take actions that require administrator
privileges, namely Save default settings and Restore shell
integration. So it’s not required anymore to execute Trader’s
Little Helper via “Run as administrator…”; the program will
automatically open an elevation prompt to ask for the rights
– Changed: Position and size of the Trader’s Little Helper window is
not stored to the registry but to a file in the Application
Data folder of the user.
– Changed: The locations of the tracker lists have been moved from the
installation folder to the user’s Application Data folder.
So edited tracker lists can be saved without requiring
administrative rights / elevated permissions.
– Reworked: Procedures that handle reading/writing of default settings
from/to the registry.
– Reworked: Procedures that integrate/remove Trader’s Little Helper
into/from Windows Explorer context menus.
– Reworked: Procedures that read/write tracker and announce URL lists.
– Reworked: Procedures that handle taking/saving screenshots of the
active Trader’s Little Helper window.
– Reworked: Installer procedures that create/remove registry settings
used for the default settings.
– Reworked: Installer procedures that create/remove registry settings
used for integration of Trader’s Little Helper into Windows
Explorer context menus.
– Reworked: Manifest file.
– Fixed: Checking whether or not a file to process exists will fail with
the error message ‘file cannot be found’ if an existing file’s
Date Modified timestamp is invalid/corrupt.
– Fixed: On the ‘Show audio file details’ page the combo box for selecting
the display mode is misplaced in some cases.
– Updated: ‘About’ dialog.
– Updated: Tracker list file.
– Updated: License file shown during installation.
– Updated: Info file shown during installation.
– Minor tweaks.

Thanks Dan. Changes don’t look too bad. Hopefully it’s not buggy. Never had a problem with the old version.

I’m going to stick with the old version a bit longer just to be sure there are no issues.
