I'm moving the discussion of the issues not related to JITSI-963 to
the dev mailing list.
The executable run.exe cannot simply be renamed to Jitsi.exe because it is referenced by the former name in the source code of the Windows setup i.e. resources\install\windows\installer-windows.wxs.
Ok, I thought so. The idea was that the list of processes reflects a bit better what is running. Depending on the personal level of paranoia "run" might appear suspicious
I totally agree with you and I've had it in my TODO list for quite
some time now.
The Windows application entry point _tWinMain is not supported by MinGW which is currently used to build Jitsi's run.exe. I already tried it prior to your patch.
Hmm... that is weird... I built it with MinGW too to ensure everything is fine. Is the "official" run.exe built with Unicode support enabled? AFAIK the makefile produces an ANSI version, and all the Unicode conversions are then not needed anyway?
Could you please share with us the MinGW version with which it works?
The run.exe produced by the Makefile and, consequently, distributed as
part of Jitsi's Windows setup is not a Unicode build. I guess you're
right that the Unicode conversions will not be necessary once we have
_tWinMain but I'm a bit hesitant to drop the ANSI support given that
it's not that big in terms of lines of code and it's already there.
Anyway, I wouldn't mind discussing that later.
