Bug: Portable LBC issues when switching machines
« on: May 05, 2009, 11:05:31 PM »
I configured a toolbar at work today.  I took the USB home and launched LBC from the USB at home.  When I did that, the "Configure Now" dialog came up, so that was not right.  Then, when i went in to configure, the proper FILE <name> toolbar was showing, but there was no "+" next to it.  Meaning, the only thing in the tree was the FILE name.  So I closed it, reopened it with from the USB, and everything showed up there fine.

Anyway, switching computers seems to a little klunky, at least on this first try of mine.  It wasn't seamless.

I'm getting the behavior above every time I switch computers.  I just brought the stick back to work and same thing.

it should be noted that both computers already have LBC running locally.  The USB version is only for launching usb programs.

I know you said it does it automatically, but I think part of the problem is that the drive letter changes in each computer, so LBC is looking to open the last open mcf file, which is on a different letter drive.  Sure, the stuff inside the mcf file retain all the relative drive settings, but that original mcf file is not being seen as relative.

Can't you set the drive letter to be the same on all computers? Just use Disk Management to change the drive letter.

PITA I know - but that is Windows!

I'd rather not.  I don't want to do that on every computer.  It would be best if the program can take care of itself.

I think the problem is that i didn't properly handle the mcf file loading when drive letters change -- let me see if i can fix it in the next day or two.

can you tell if the other main feature works? where LBC will find the right drive for a program to be launched?

yes, once the file gets loaded, everything else works properly.  I even go back in preferences and check the settings, which all have paths to whatever the original location was, but they all launch properly.
