SystemParamtersInfoA Unknown Action: 4104

Thank you for your note.

MindManager is a Mind Mapping program from MSJ (not the Microsoft Systems
Journal), it is the original as I understand it from the person who
invented them.  The version I am using us MindManager 2002, I have not
tried the earlier versions.

I suspect that the panel which gets displayed expects either mouse or
keyboard actions, but neither get it going.  I will try installing this on
a Windows machine to see what should happen.  I was curious about the
action number as it was so different from the ones Wine was looking for.
Perhaps the 0x4000 bit should be masked off, but it is a ulong!

Without knowledge of what this action is for, it is difficult to know how
to proceed.  Anyone know anything about it?

David, usually the SystemParametersInfo FIXME messages
are not dangerous. I saw action numbers > 4000 before.
Does anybody have documentation or Microsoft header
files which mention these actions?
I'm curious about them.

Please, use Wine documentation how to debug Wine.

What is MindManager? On internet I found a few
products with this name.

BTW, this discussion belongs to the wine-users list.
