MacAbout

I created a program thant looks like the About This Mac window. I think there might be another program out there like this, but I couldn’t find one with a working link. I hope someone will find this useful. Please tell me what you think.

To run it you will need the Microsoft .Net Framework.

All the settings are in the Setting.ini file
it holds all the text and what the buttons link to.

This one kind of lies, could it have the actual CPU and memory info? I sure wish I had a 2.4ghz processor but I don’t.

Great - except, the lines do not provide enough character space for Processor and RAM. For example, I use an :

3.4GHz Intel® Core™2 Extreme

which will not fit and:

16GB DDR2 SDRAM

which will also not fit -

could you increase the number of characters please? The nomenclature of OS X displays the devices as shown above, I would think that should be possible - hope so. Other than that, great work visually and functionally - thank you for a nice contribution.

Too bad it doesn’t have the actual CPU and memory information.
Just like Dudeicles said, I wish I had a 2.4ghz processor but I don’t :p

If you want to change the specs on the about screen just edit the “Settings” file.

This is what mine looks like-

//application text
Mac OS X
Version 10.4
Software Update…
Processor
1.8 GHz AMD Sempron
Memory
512 MB
More Info…

//Bellow is what the first button links to
Update.lnk
//Bellow is what the second button links to
System.lnk
//Whether it exits on the first button’s click
false
//Whether it exits on the second button’s click
true

Just change the part under “Processor” and “Memory” to match your system.
