Jackpot!!! I should have tested this. It worked on the early releases, but does not now.

Are you running Vista or Windows 7 and are running Anuran from the Program Files folder?  If so, maybe Anuran is having trouble writing to that folder?  If that turns out to be the case, could you try testing it from another folder outside of the Program Files one?

because when I finally returned to my computer I realized the bottom line was telling that the program now was re-writing the tags!

Wow.  If a program EVER did that to my files without my express permission, I would be PISSED OFF.  I'm am a huge stickler for correct tags and have spent, over the years, countless hours tagging my files how I want them tagged.  As for the scanning taking hours, that's not cool either.  I've written a database function into Trout that takes only around 50 minutes to scan my entire collection (~87,000 files) and that's whilst scanning over my local LAN since my music is stored on a file server.  It would be even quicker if my files were on a local drive.

Curt, did you ever hear back from Playlist Creator's author about your request to add the total play time for a playlist?

Gah...I really don't know what is causing it not to archive since all the tests I've done have worked for me. 

1) You mentioned that your computer is on 24/7 (so is mine) but it's not in some kind of sleep/hibernate mode at 3:30 a.m., right? 
2) Does the "Archive now" button work for you?

v1.0.20 - 2010-01-15
    + Included default frog_1.wav file in the /sounds folder.  (Thanks, doctorfrog)
    ! Fixed, hopefully, an archiving bug where Anuran wouldn't archive at the specified time.  (Thanks, jdmarch)


@jdmarch: Please let me know if that fixed it.  Thanks.

1. I just checked with Anuview and see that even though I set the option to archive at 3:30 a.m. each day, my current.anu has now accumulated 4 days of entries.
2. When I look at the change log in the about folder, it only shows changes through "v1.0.11 - 2009-11-18" i.e. the changelog which is in the res folder, not the correct one which is in the program folder.
3. I think it's unwise to default to putting log files under program files, since they contain user data. Many backup protocols do not backup any Program Files. Likewise it would be more friendly if the config.ini were under one of the Application folders.

1) Hmmm...I will do some more testing on this.  Sorry about that.  May I assume you run your computer 24/7 i.e. it's actually on at 3:30 a.m.?
2) Maybe something went screwy with my build process.  The current changelog.txt gets compiled into the Anuran.exe and extracted into the /res folder each time you start up Anuran.  I can't seem to make it act like you're describing.
3) We're going to have to disagree here.  I much prefer my apps to keep their stuff in their own folder.  At the very least, this keeps them portable.

no, I was just opening dcupdater (or maybe it opened itself..)
It would be helpful though (but no big deal!) if it were in there by default - or can it be added manually - that way, whenever dcupdater does open, it would check if Anuran needs an update

I believe that, if you use the option within Anuran one time, it will show up when you launch DCUpdater manually.
3158  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: Anuran on: January 15, 2010, 06:21:23 AM
I'm wondering should it not show in the dcupdater window? (It doesnt here).

It should if you launch the update check from the "Help, Check for updates" menu entry.  Is that what you're doing?

I tried this on my XP laptop at home, and decided I needed it at work, too. When I tried to run it on my old Windows 2000 desktop at work I got the error shown.
Anyone else got it working on Win 2k??

Yes, I have at least one reported person using it successfully on Win2k.  When you first start the Anuran.exe, it should create two folders: res & archive

Within the /res folder, it should extract the following files:

  • about.png
  • changelog.txt
  • dcuhelper.exe
  • icon.ico
  • resources.dll

Can you confirm the files and folders are created?

BTW, you're free to use any IRC client you want to...it doesn't need to be one bundled in with an IM client.  I suppose what I'm trying to say is that IRC is different than IM.  However, some IM clients such as Miranda and Pidgin do have IRC plugins (which blurs the lines a little between IRC and IM).  Does that make sense?
3161  Special User Sections / DC Website Help and Extras / Re: is the chatroom borked? on: January 14, 2010, 11:27:47 PM
FWIW, I've used Miranda for nearly ten years now (ever since it was just an ICQ clone).

The value gets into the registry fine, about five times I think.  I did a search before running the .exe, and there were none, so the unregister is working perfect, I'd assume.

I really don't have any idea why it's not working.  Do you have any other machines you can test it on?

v1.0.19 - 2010-01-14
    + Added "Go to pause mode after startup" option to the General tab.  (Thanks, M. Gumm)

You mentioned in your other post that you run a couple of apps that modify the context menu.  Perhaps they're interfering with Files2Folders context menu entry in some way?  If you want to see if the entry has even made it into your registry, search for this string:

{a951a7c0-97b1-11de-b5f4-0002a5d5c51b}

1) Fire up Windows Registry Editor.
2) Highlight the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT folder near the top.
3) Choose Edit, Find from the menu.
4) Paste the above string in the "Find what" field and click the "Find next" button.

I could turn it on but the problem is that I wouldn't have any idea how to fix the issue.

Nice!  Sounds like a good idea for a separate tool/script -- does it work for multi-display situations too?

It will center the window to the main display.  Here's the code snippet:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. WinGetPos, , , Width, Height, A
  2. WinMove, A, , ( A_ScreenWidth / 2 ) - ( Width / 2 ), ( A_ScreenHeight / 2 ) - ( Height / 2 )

Nothing to it, really.

Anuvu has started crashing on me:
The thread 'Win32 Thread' (0x3fc) has exited with code 0 (0x0).
Unhandled exception at 0x7732cdc9 in AnuVu.exe: 0xC000041D: An unhandled exception was encountered during a user callback.

This is the first report I've had of this but it's rather strange since I haven't touched the AnuVu code since 2009-11-18.  I googled "0xC000041D" and there are tons of hits regarding Windows 7 and this error code.  Are you running Windows 7?  If so, maybe one of those Google entries holds a solution for you.

I downloaded the newest version last night.  I got a total blank in all my context menus, including after reboot.  I unregistered np. Nothing in the task manager this time, although I didn't look until I unregistered.  Any hope for me to get this going, or is my working computer just too old and bloated?

When you say total blank, you don't mean that your context menu is totally blank, do you?  I assume you mean that just the Files2Folder entry doesn't show up, right?  Also, you shouldn't see anything in the task manager after you register the extension.  Files2Folder doesn't stay running; it only launches when called from the menu.

That's why I keep a "center window" hotkey in my main AHK script...for those windows that get stuck off-screen.  Or, you can use this procedure to bring off-screen windows back.

1) Focus the window by clicking its taskbar button.
2) Press alt-space, m, down-arrow.
3) Now, without clicking your mouse at all, move the mouse around.  Your window should be stuck to the pointer and easy to retrieve.

I assume you would like it changed so that if an entry is blank it still uses the last known good entry?
I thought (and liked) that the spec was that if an entry is blank then no log entry is made.

Sorry, I should have been more clear.  What I meant was that, if the entry was blank, it would re-use the previously known good entry to populate the next popup.  Does that make more sense?
3172  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: Anuran on: January 12, 2010, 07:28:18 AM
Also if I don't want to write anything (i.e. I blank the window and press enter) the next entry is blank. This sort of makes sense, but I was wondering if that was the design or not.

Well...technically...it was the last entry, right?   tongue  I assume you would like it changed so that if an entry is blank it still uses the last known good entry?
3173  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: Anuran on: January 12, 2010, 06:04:18 AM
I like this release!

Thanks.  This project has turned out to be more popular than I initially thought it might.

I like the remember last comment but have disabled it as I have to grab the mouse to delete the last entry if it isn't the same. Is there a way for the text to be pre-highlighted? That way if I start typing then it is replaced but if I hit enter it is saved. And is only a delete enter away from being left blank.

It should already be pre-selected.  However, if you activate the window by clicking within the edit field, it will deselect it.  Try activating the popup by clicking the titlebar...the text should remain pre-selected.  Let me know...

Tags: not an issue for me, so my comments may not be relevant, but why not just suggest that anyone who wants to use tags, can add the relevant shortcuts into their default AHK script?

Well, not everyone uses a default AHK script.

BTW, speaking of clean text files, Anuran has quite a few superfluous LF (^J) characters in the file, at the end of entries. Seems that maybe they are an artifact of the "default to previous text" feature. Doesn't seem to affect Anuview, but can be a small nuisance when editing the file. How about removing leading and trailing white space before appending to the log file?

Yes, I can do this.  However, it will remove the ability for the user to add in extra linefeeds of their own at the end of a note.  I don't see this being a huge issue, though.

Suggestion for tagging (which I won't be using, myself. I like this as a freeform mental catchall app.):
Feature requirement: Keep the popup exactly the same if possible, with no new widgets. This keeps things simple for folks that won't be using tags, and (I believe) keeps the popup streamlined for those who will be using tags by keeping all user input in a single box. Dropdowns are speedbumps!
Feature requirement: Retain the dead simple, human-readable format for the logfiles.

With the above in mind: Use a text syntax for tags. Example possibility:

Surround tags in single or double colons, with no spaces (underscores ok). Separate multiple tags with a single colon. Colons are on the home row and easily tappable, which aids quick input.

Any tagging I implement will be a very simple free-form type of tagging so the user can come up with the types of tags that fit for their workflow.  Some people like @tags, others like ::tags, etc.  The tags themselves will simply be part of the note.  Basically, all it's going to do is save some typing when entering a note.  Does that make sense?  Again, I'm trying to keep it simple for myself and the user.  If somebody wants a note-taker that deals heavily with tags, I urge them to check out the fantastic CintaNotes.  I doubt I'd ever implement tagging in Anuran to the level that CintaNotes has. 

Feature requirement: Retain the dead simple, human-readable format for the logfiles.

I've no desire to change up the current .anu file format.
