N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck
« on: December 18, 2015, 04:53 PM »
Just an update for skwire and anyone else following my problem.

After more experimenting, I found out that moving the exe or renaming the folder it was in only solved the slow start on the first run. All subsequent start times went back to 44 seconds again. I have done nothing else since.  Then yesterday comes Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124200). So far, ever since that update was installed, epCheck starts in about 2 seconds each and every time.

I have no idea what was going on but thought I would give this info in case it helps anyone else.

I would like to download a fresh copy of the newest version of epCheck but not sure what or where it is. I am using 1.1.5 build 166 right now but I see the one on page 1 of this forum is 1.1.5 build 1 so where is the latest?

I tried renaming the folder back to "epCheck" and get the 44 second delay again. Renaming the folder solves my problem for whatever reason.

Thanks for your help

I just tried renaming the original folder from "epCheck" to "epCheck_1" and it now opens as it should. All my shows and everything else is OK. A simple fix but I don't understand it.

I just tried copying the config file and the data folder to the different folder as well. And now it still opens in just 2 seconds! I don't get what is going on but it looks like using a different folder solves the problem.

I had not thought about doing that. Moving the exe to a different folder makes the program start in 2 seconds or less. So what does that mean?

For the past week or two, it takes exactly 44 seconds for epCheck to start after double clicking the program icon. I am running Windows 10 and I assume the problem is with the OS but I never had a problem until lately and I have been running Win 10 ever since it was available. Perhaps it is one of the latest updates for Windows? The slow start happens every time. I can close epCheck and immediately try running it again and there is another 44 second delay before the program window opens.

I have tried turning off the firewall and antivirus with no difference. I have tried running it as administrator and in Win 8 compatibility mode with no change. I am out of ideas and thought I would ask here if anyone can help.

Thanks

WOW....fantastic! I will never miss a show again. I have been using TVRage to keep track of my favorites but this program is much better.

Thanks a lot.

Everything on mine looks about half that size but mine is much sharper than that shown on your image.
I'm really liking this great tool.

I increased the DPI setting when I first got this monitor so that most everything looks OK so hate to change for just one program. Don't make any changes just for me. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking a way to change font size since I just started using epCheck tonight.

Thanks.

Everything is pretty small at 1920 X 1080 resolution but the list of episodes is the most important to get larger.

This looks like something I can make use of but on my high res monitor the text is so small it is hard to read.
Is there a way to change font size?
