Author: Andrew Sachen
Created: July 9, 2010
Updated: January 5, 2020

Language: Visual Basic.NET
Compiler: Visual Studio 2010
Framework: Version 4.0+


This application can be compiled using Visual Studio 2010 or newer, however an Authenticode-based Digital Signature check is integrated into the code to prevent incorrectly-signed or unsigned copies from running. Comment out lines 10-14 of /Please Stand By/ApplicationEvents.vb to disable this signature check before compiling if you wish to build your own copy.

This application is not designed to support Mono/Xamarin compilation and may not work on Linux or OS X systems. In particular, there are a few API calls used by this application: "GetLastInputInfo", "RegisterHotKey" and "UnregsterHotKey", as well as "PostMessage".
