Bug: Error MSGs on v1.04.16 startup
« on: September 11, 2005, 11:45:19 PM »
When starting Clipboard Help+Spell v1.04.16 I get 3 error message dialog boxes:
1) "'12-Sep-05 6:32:59 AM' is not a valid date and time" (looks valid to me)
2) "Field 'CreationDateTime' must have a value"
3) Same as above.

Using W2K SP4.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for reporting, sagamal.
FYI: the developer mouser is not online for a few days.

hi sagamal,
did you my any chance install one of our older versions of clipboard help and spell - it almost sounds like an error that would come from an older database.

the best way to fix would be go into database folder in the clipboard help+spell directory and delete (or move) the database files so that new ones are created on the next run.

clipboard help+spell is going to get major improvements and refinement as soon as some of our other programs get their turn getting updated; it's still in an early development stage.

strange, and if you delete the database files does the same thing happen again when you restart? i'll check into it when i get back into town.

Sorry it took so long to reply. 
I deleted all files under C:\Program Files\ClipboardHelpAndSpell\Database except for the readme - no change!

No.  Standard W2K SP4, English.

ok i have a theory about this now perhaps.
i'm thinking you probably have a non-standard date format set.
i don't know why that should be given that you have an english version of windows..

but regardless, its chs fault for trying to set the date based on local date format instead of formatting it itself;
i will try to update a fixed version in the next week or so.

thank you for keeping on top of this and please check back soon i will try to have a fix.
