The old WinSize and the new WinSize2 project

Once upon a time there was a WinSize which I loved to use for a long time. (The time of Win95, do you remember?) I forgot WinSize for years and then tried to use it again. But all links I'd found for the program were broken and the latest update for WinSize 1.6 beta was from 1998. The only thing I found was that the author of the program had lost his sources at a computer crash and was not willing to reconstruct those.

So I decided - as I needed new features that were not covered by the old WinSize - to write a WinSize2 myself. I started WinSize2 in 2005 as project to learn to use Autohotkey (AHK - and as AHK supplies the OS-interface WinSize2 runs on all OS'es where AHK runs).

By the time WinSize2 grew to be a usable program (which was configured with an editor).
When I published the first editions in 2008 I included a GUI interface for configuration and searched to a good hoster (SourceForge as you know).


Remarks concerning "Virus-Alarm"

Some virus scanner recognize the EXE file as containing a virus. The SourceForge download definitely does not contain any virusses. (An AHK-EXE file contains the source code and appends an executable program which interprets the source and the scanner interprets the source as being a virus.)
