What's new in the beta 8.1c

Start up with configuration list

A new /C * command line option can be used to display an initial list of available Glink configurations.

Glink will generate the list of available configurations by enumerating the *.glinkconfig and glwinc.* files in the user (/U) and configuration (/CD) directories.

The displayed list contains the following information for each configuration:

Configuration: The configuration name is the abbreviated form of the configuration file name, generated by removing the path and *.glinkconfig or glwinc.* elements, e.g.


will be displayed as 'MyHost'.

Host or gateway: This is the host or gateway name (or IP address) as specified in the Settings=>Communication option.

Description: This is the Glink title text as specified in the Settings=>General=>Glink title bar text option.

Path: The full path for the configuration file.

Wallpaper selection

The wallpaper file selection lists are preinitialized with all installed images in the Glink directory. The facelifting dialog box supports 'preview browsing' by immediately displaying the selected background and display options in the Glink window.
