The Parastream Technologies WallGen Tool is a valuable addition to any multi-platform development or testing operation. It can quickly generate a custom wallpaper for Windows machines that can help users positively identify a machine and configuration at a glance using text, graphics, and colors.
Here are some of the features of WallGen:
I handled the entire project, including documentation. The product was written in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0, because Visual C++ .NET doesn't support Windows 95. The documentation was composed in Microsoft FrontPage 2002, and compiled into a .chm file using Microsoft HTML Help Workshop. The web site pages at http://www.parastream.com/software/wallgen were composed in Microsoft FrontPage 2002, and an animated GIF for the home page was authored in Ulead GIF Animator 4.0. The source control used was Perforce.
You can click on an icon below (use the arrows to scroll the icon list) and see the screen shot and a description.:
The Sections group specifies which tabs are displayed. The Style and Colors groups affect the appearance of the wallpaper.
The project included 15,000 lines of C++ code and 11 help topics.
You may download a demo copy of WallGen at http://www.parastream.com/software/wallgen.
