Start++ breaks 6,000 downloads

by Brandon on March 8th, 2007

According to my logs, over 6,500 people have downloaded Start++ since it’s release! Wow! Guess it’s time to put up a real “Info” web page to introduce people to it.

Anyone know of or interested in providing a good place to have a Start++ user forum?

Also, if anyone wants to make a pretty icon for it (especially larger than 16×16 ones) that would rock too =)

  1. Congratulations on the downloads.

    If you’re thinking about setting up a forum, I would recommend looking into Google groups. It’s super easy to set up and use and is quite flexible.

    Good luck!

  2. We can host the forum for you if you want. We can do one of two things…setup your own forum or just add a sub-forum to our current forum. You should be able to see my email address in the comment so send me a message if you want me to setup a forum for Start++.

    Thanks for a great app Brandon!

  3. I’d start by taking a look at some of the open source project trackers out there (i.e. CodePlex, SourceForge, or Tigris).

    Yeah I think a forum is really necessary…
    And so is a new icon…^_^

  5. While you’re at it, maybe invest in a certificate so that Start++ doesn’t come up as from an unknown publisher? I bet MS likes your tools enough to buy you a certificate to use (that has your name on it so as not to make it look too official). It would be a nice example for other developers if the hero hobby coders started signing code… I’m a big WDS fan so I’m really looking forward to Start++ but unsigned code is sooo 20th century!

    New Icons. Not fantastic but an improvement; all are 256×256 vista format icons.

    Icon 1

    Icon 2 (same design slight variation)

  7. I see that the competition about the icon has started already, so here my proposal, downloadable from my website under the following URL:

    It’s a zipped .ICO file with the icon in all sizes (256, 48, 32, 24,16) each time in XP style with alpha channel and Truecolor version with 1-bit transparency.
