Gamer in need? You need WMPHider!

Hi all,
i've recently started with Delphi again after a long break from programming. The application i have here today is called WMPHider. Version 1.0 was a private release that i used to try and lower my memory usage during gaming, while still having music playing and without having to install even more applications. Version 2.0 is a public release and is designed for use by the general public.

Today, i've updated it by using the Windows Variable to detect the Program Files Folder. Also added an about dialog and modified the show and hide buttons so that they reduce memory used by WMP even more.

This utility is designed for gamers who want music without hassle. If you want to reduce your memory usage, then i'd recommend it.

In a few weeks/months, i'm going to be releasing my own media player, one without all the hassles, for gamers, by a gamer. But until then, WMPHider to the rescue!


Comments are welcome. Feature suggestions are also welcome. I'll evaluate any that i receive and decide whether it'll be able to reduce memory usage even more.

As you can see, it's a very small application. And in more than one way as it's a lightweight champion weighing in at 418KB file size and 828K memory usage!
