What it this better then, say, a hotmail account, or OpenID? and adding an extra annoyance of having to verify the current browser as being allowed to access the service credentials.

Sounds like a solution looking for a problem ohmy

What a horror-story, and if it where from a low-end games creator it could have been a little bit acceptable/understandable, but getting a pirated copy easier and better (working) on your system just shows how the games industry is failing as a whole. I never play/buy games, nor 'acquire' pirated commercial versions, but experiences like these scare me even further away.

I know it's a complete industry, games software for PC's, but I guess it is time for a good set of free offerings in this area.

That looks cool thumbs up It's a pity Google is trying to hide it, but I guess they need it as a USP for Android undecided

Did anything else happen to that machine? A 'lightning skrike' like nudone had about 2 weeks ago, a power brown-out, or something similar?

It's just getting from bad to worst.
I had that with a PC that wasn't moved for about 5 years, and after moving it for half a meter ( ! ) it just about fell apart, rebooted spontaneously, or Windows hung without any warning. The ASrock MB inside I had to declare dead, nothing good could be had from it, and I simply replaced the entire machine to avoid endless trouble and support (the owner lives ~1/2h drive away, and I could only go there in the evening because of work obligations).
Maybe this is the point where you should drop this baby/culprit too? undecided

Hmm, the Bank 0: / Bank 5: messages would suggest me memory errors, not CPU, but both are alarming Cry

Well... It isn't going to hold up to the NANY rules (it's gotta be spranklin' new), so I'll do a 'normal' v2 re-release in this thread.

It'll take me some time to wrap things up, so don't hold your breath waiting tongue

1583  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 14, 2011, 02:21:52 PM
Hm, I've been staring at this issue for long enough, and searched the i-net too, but there seems to be some issue between the Excel Object model and external scripting that's just to tricky to solve in an easy way. mad
As claimed before: "It works on my machine" (W7 x64, Office 2007 with all updates applied, macro's and VBA enabled to the max)

Guess it's time to start on my earlier claim:
Planned Features
Remove the requirement of having Excel installed locally (involves rewriting in Java...)
Not sure it fits the NANY rules (I'll check that later), but I hope to continue with a tool that has the same functionality, with 1 difference, that it Just Works tellme

I'll start to work on it asap, and pledge for NANY2012 if that applies, or re-release as version 2 (the current one really should have gotten v1.0)
That will ofcourse replace the 'Excel-installed' requirement for the 'Java-installed' requirement. Wink

I can confirm this errormessage huh, still searching/working on a solution.

Is the idea to present all pictures unaltered, or do you have some sort of collage-/merge-effect(s) in mind?

But what button should then perform the functions of the (Ctrl-/Alt-/Win-) Tab key? undecided It has so many good uses already.

That image just looks so much nicer thumbs up compared to what I had so far, I'll add it to the project asap.

Hey, that's nice code, thanks Thmbsup
I'll be using that in a DC-related project soon, I hope. tellme
1590  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 12, 2011, 05:15:38 PM
I must assume that your Excel install is working normal, as I can't see any reason why it shouldn't, but would it be possible to try this tool on another PC with MS Excel 2007 or 2010 installed?
It's getting a bit weird, next to awkward, as I don't have any testing environments here, that make it fail this way for me. huh
Tomorrow I'll be able to test on a new system with Office 2010 x64, I'll report here how things are then.

Are there any restrictions like Domain Policies applied to your PC?, or tools that restrict your working environment (performance or usage 'throttling' tools) as that could explain why you get these errors.
1591  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 12, 2011, 04:35:30 PM
Maybe the ReadOnly flag should be set in your (and standard) case.
That can be achieved by adding a 3rd parameter with value True on the call to _ExcelBookOpen in Excel2Html.au3 on line 290, like:
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ...
  2. Local $excelbook = _ExcelBookOpen($excelfile, 1, True) ; Display, so the select & copy can work
  3. ...

Could you retry with this change, please?
1592  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 12, 2011, 03:08:23 PM
Then could you please install AutoIt3 from here (during install, select to execute the .au3 file by default, not to edit it) and run from the .au3 file (you could rename the .exe to something else), the proposed commandline would be like:
 "Excel2Html.au3 -f testaddresses.xlsx -t Excel2Html-all-template.html -o test.html"
and report the actual errormessage the script errors out with, as the line-number from the compiled .exe is not anywhere near correct or realistic.
1593  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 12, 2011, 02:30:59 PM
Might be a 'Trust' issue.
Excel is supposed to open the file, and E2H then accesses the Excel objectmodel in memory to select all data, copies that to the Windows Clipboard and processes it from there to merge it using the template. If E2H isn't allowed to access the in-memory Excel instance, then the errormessage you showed is one of several that could occur.
You might need to configure Excel to allow access to the VBA Object Model in the Excel Trust center (Office button, Options button, Trust center, Settings for Trust center, Macro settings, enable checkbox: 'Allow access... VBA ...' (translated from localized Office)).

Maybe this should have been in the readme file, but I kinda forgot I had this enabled before I started this little project embarassed

1595  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: an app to stop installers from launching web browsers and opening pages on: July 12, 2011, 04:01:38 AM
the user chooses to download and run it, the updated installer automatically uninstalls the older version silently,

That is normally not needed. Nearly nothing needs an uninstall before an update. You know where you are coming from, application-wise, and where you are going to, so just updating the files that are new should be enough.
That the standard Visual Studio setup project does that, doesn't mean it useful for anything, it's just pure laziness of the MS guys, and meant as an opportunity to sell you a 'real' installer builder like Wise or Installshield. But as you already found out, Inno Setup can do what you need most of the time, easier and with a smaller footprint smiley (And yes, I'm an Inno Setup fan, though I also work with Installshield stuff)

3D printing is a real technology already, one of the shops that can produce the objects for you is Shapeways, but you can build your own 3D printer, if you like, for around US$500 - US$1000. The guys at MakerBot (there are more supplies around) have complete kits where you mostly add time and a creativity, and get tips from the user support forums.
This Wikipedia articlew has a good explanation and references
