@spongehammer, I don't know if you saw this - I found the (simple) solution to accessing kiosk mode during run time and put it in this thread. :)

I had to finally update node webkit from 10.5. When I upgraded to the recent r209 update, I was getting fairly consistent crashing before the game would start. It was annoying because my game takes around 45 seconds to load, and these crashes would occur right before the game started.

Anyway, I updated to the latest node webkit. I can't say I'm really happy though. I mean, the crashes stopped, but for some reason it seems locked at 59fps instead of 60 and uses slightly more cpu. Oh well, it works well enough I guess.

Is there anything I can do to get Windows XP support back? About 60% of the machine I am installing on run Windows XP - is there something I can install or tweak to make it work with these older computers? At the present time my app just crashes on startup.

While I don't know any technical details about this, I'd say you shouldn't get your hopes up. Windows XP is a not supported, dead and old OS. The industry wants it to disappear, so there won't be any support for that imo.

Even Google Chrome is itself dropping support for Windows XP. We've warned about this previously.

Ok thanks for the clarification. Because our workstations are used in a closed environment there has been no pressure to replace agiong XP machines as they still run our 1500+ app software suite at full speed. I think I will warn our managers that the day has arrived.

I've finished a NW.js <C2 COMport> plugin, it requires the <serialport> node-module which can be installed by npm system. It work fine if I package my NW.js app by command line manually. Is there any chance to include the <serialport> node-module in C2 NW.js export?
