Hello,
I need some help with the code from this link (the code from the accepted solution, of TheRealLoki):
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_23399636.html
1. When I try to request another screenshot before the previous one was received (this is a problem for the same client, not the second) the server will freeze and I will have to restart it manually. Could anybody figure out how to fix this? Maybe checking the clientstage?
2. When I get the files (records) command SENDFILES C:\records\??.??.????.rec would it be possible for the server to send a list of local drives to the client on connect? So the form will look something like this for example:

[ D:\    v] [records\??.??.????.rec]
    |                |
    |             Edit just like the one from before...
Combobox with a list of local drives from the server

Thanks.

hmm, I'm not getting any problems when I run it here
can you make sure you have this bit of code, as this is what ensures no commands can be sent whie a screenshot is being received

procedure TfClientMain.bRequestScreenshotClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if WSocket1.State <> wsConnected then
    MemoClient.lines.add('not connected, cannot login')
  else if ClientStage <> csCommand then
    MemoClient.lines.add('not ready to send commands')
  else
  begin
    ClientStage := csReceiveScreenshot_Start;
    WSocket1.SendLine('SCREENSHOT');
  end;
end;

Yeah, I think that must be the problem... when I made my client I only added this code: "WSocket1.SendLine('SCREENSHOT');" for the get screenshot button... I have to be more carefull in the future, i have too many things on my mind... :P Will test now, but i guess it will work if it works on your pc... Can you please help me with the other point of my question? And also, take a look at this queston, and tell me if you have any solution for it: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Q_23484795.html
