Hi All,

I've uploaded the updated setup of the build 19.08 for Borland C++ 5.5.1 at

http://hmgextended.com/files/CONTRIB/hm ... -setup.exe

Whatsnew:
2019/09/05: HMG Extended Edition version 19.08 (Update 2).
* New: Added the useful pseudo-function HMG_TimeMS( TS1 [, TS2] ) for
calculation of an elapsed time in the milliseconds.
Sample code:
#include "minigui.ch"
STATIC s_tStartTime
INIT PROCEDURE OnStartup()
s_tStartTime := hb_DateTime()
RETURN
PROCEDURE main()
hb_idleSleep(.1)
RETURN
EXIT PROCEDURE OnExit()
? "You used this program by", HMG_TimeMS( s_tStartTime )
RETURN
Suggested and contributed by Sergej Kiselev.
* Updated: HbSQLite3 library:
- update for using SQLITE3 latest version 3.30.0dev.
Contributed by Grigory Filatov <gfilatov@inbox.ru>
* New: 'HMG Misc' sample. Borrowed from HMG 4 project.

This is what we'd call "tireless devotion" to keep `hmg` alive! 8-)
Many thanks!
This `setup` program while works smoothly, has an rather unwanted side effect.
It creates repeated menu entries in start menu for every new version:
(see the attached picture)

menu.png (38.13 KiB) Viewed 780 times
 
I have had not spotted it earlier because I don't use the start menu very frequently,
but it has became annoyingly noticeable after accumulating recent updates.
Please note, I always place every new version into the same folder `C:\minigui`,
which means all these menu entries point at the same folder, something that is unnecessary,
misleading and risky! Just try to imagine what shall happen if I choose to uninstall 18.11 version... ;)
I think it must somehow be rectified. (I guess it could be done by some setting during setup creation?)

regards,
Pete
