After updating to a new version of iTunes, sometimes programs that interface with iTunes (like iTunes Sync) will stop working. This is caused by iTunes failing to register itself correctly as a COM object. This problem can show itself in different ways, but in iTunes Sync you will usually see an error like this:
System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast COM object of type 'iTunesLib.iTunesAppClass' to interface type 'iTunesLib.IiTunes'.
Just download and run iTunes COM Fix to take care of this issue. It will attempt to register the new iTunes executable as a COM object so that any programs that rely on the iTunes API will start working again, without having to re-install anything. iTunes COM Fix is just a simple executable, with nothing to install, so it's quick and easy to use.

I am very happy to announce the release of ASP.NET ViewState Helper 1.4! The 2 main changes in this release are Internet Explorer x64 compatibility and Firefox compatibility. ASP.NET ViewState Helper will now show an Internet Explorer or Firefox icon beside each item, depending on which browser the page is loaded in. Both browsers support all the features of previous ASP.NET ViewState Helper versions (like chunked ViewState, frames, iframes... etc). If you would like to see a complete list of changes, you can view them in the ASP.NET ViewState Helper Change Log. You can download the new version on ASP.NET ViewState Helper download page.

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1! This release brings a bucket-full of bug fixes, as well as some exciting new features. The most exciting new feature is the addition of optional TitleBar Buttons for all Free and Pro users. These TitleBar Buttons can be used to perform the same action as the built-in or customized HotKeys. This way, you can perform the HotKey's actions with just a click of the mouse. The TitleBar Buttons look just like native Window's buttons. Here is an example of what they look like in Windows 7:
Here are some of the other highlights in this release:
If you would like to see all of the changes in this release, just check out the complete DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a special Thank You to everyone who helped test this release! It was a long beta test, with 15 betas tested over 2 months, but everyone stuck with it and helped to shape DisplayFusion into what you see today. I would encourage everyone to update to this new version as soon as possible to take advantage of all the new features and fixes. Thanks everyone!

Last year, I posted about the web browser market share that I see on my web site. I thought it would be interesting to post a followup, 1 year later. As you can see from the chart below, Firefox has gained 2% while Internet Explorer has lost 2%. For some reason, Google Chrome doesn't even appear above 1%. I guess it's still too new. Opera lost 0.5% while Safari gained 0.5%. The "other" browsers still makeup the remaining 1%. As always, take these stats with a grain of salt - they only represent the traffic on my website, not the internet in general.

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.8.3! This new release adds the ability to filter search results by the Last Modified Date, as well as including a number of important bug fixes. One other important change is the default action when double-clicking a search result item. It now performs the default Windows "Open" command, not the "Open with Other Application" command. Here are some highlights from this release:
You can see the full list of changes in the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone using FileSeek to update today. If you have auto-update enabled in FileSeek you will be prompted to update automatically. For everyone else, just visit the FileSeek download page and get up-to-date today!

I'd like to take a minute to welcome Andrew McTeer to the Binary Fortress Software team. Andrew has signed on to provide part-time help in the forums and support email. The surprising popularity of DisplayFusion, iTunes Sync (and many other applications) has caused a bit of a backlog in the Support Forum. With Andrew's help, he should be able to clear out the backlog, and keep it up-to-date. I've known Andrew for many years, and have worked with him in the past. He's an excellent developer, and has a wealth of technical knowledge. So, if you see Andrew snooping around in the forum, don't be afraid to say hello!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.8.1! A few issues made it into the 1.8 release, so this release is a minor release to take care of those things.

As always, you can view the complete change log if you would like all the details. If you have auto-update enabled you will be notified the next time you start FileSeek, otherwise just head over to the FileSeek page and download it today!
