Windows Enabler - This Is A Interesting Old App I Found

Post by betaluva »

have you had the situation where you want some part of a app to work but the button is greyed out ? well you need windows enabler, just click on windows enabler .exe and now that greyed out button will work.* just be carefull, that button was greyed out for a reason! http://rapidshare.com/files/83363415/wi ... nabler.zip

I remember this app from long ago. Sometimes, it could enable useful functions such as ones artificially disabled in shareware versions and the like, but in some cases, enabling intentionally disabled things could cause all kinds of weirdness.

if i remember correctly i used to use it on windows 98 second edition, you press shift plus another key to get the hidden menue to show on the startmenue and then i would turn on this app and the buttons on the hidden menue would work, the hidden menue was going to be used with web-toolbars, the idea was that you went to a website and downloaded a toolbar for that site, then this menue would display all of the toolbars that you had downloaded.

I wonder, how would you program such a thing?

Noone said it was supposed to work, it just enables you to explore the unexplored...
