here's a minor problem with the viewer

I right click an archived log. Context menu shows.
I then right-click any other log.
The app uses 100% cpu (well, one full core) for a few seconds, and only then shows the context menu for that item

        ! Successive right-clicking the listview sometimes resulted in a 100% CPU race condition.  (Thanks, tomos)

Is this new with the latest version or has this been an ongoing thing?

Certainly with last night's version (..23). Not sure how much earlier because I have been assuming user error and not paying much attention (sorry), but if I had to guess I would say maybe a few versions earlier?

You're welcome, mohamedm.  Apologies for the lack of Unicode support.  The last time I checked, the Unicode version of AutoHotkey didn't support file I/O yet so I'm not sure I could make it work even if I compiled Anuran with that version.  I'll try to find some time to check into it.

Thanks, hopefully it will work with the Unicode version.

I noticed that earlier today - i.e. with last but one version:
Website | Download
v1.0.22 - 2010-01-20
    ! Trailing newlines are now stripped from notes before saving.


Give this version a shot, folks, and let me know if the "extra lines" issue is resolved.

wasnt using previous version so cant say...

I want to archive log daily, It's currently set to:-
Archive logs every: [1] [day(s)]
Does that archive then: 24hrs after the first entry, or at midnight (the latter doesnt seem to be the case here so I will have to wait till later to check the former*)

It will archive 24 hours after you click OK.  You would be better off using the second option where you can specify a daily time to archive.

I'm afraid it's not archiving here if computer is shutdown or hibernated at scheduled archive time... settings "Archive daily at:" (hibernated last night & tried again today via shutdown)
Version 1.0.21 build one - oh :-[ I see newer versions (but none that relate to this problem?)

I've updated & will report back in the next couple of days


[edit] forgot to say I did a test earlier & it archived okay when pc running [/edit]

Currently, Anuran has to be running at the time of scheduled archive.  In other words, if your computer is off or hibernated, it won't archive.

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?

Yes, I checked that the folder and files are all there. I tried starting it a couple of times, and it "runs", although it never pops up by itself, and can't be configured (same error pops up when I try). I can see the space where it should be in the systray, and the context menu is active when I right-click on the vacant spot in the systray. I tried the latest version but no change. My system is Windows 2000 Pro SP 4.

Does the same error happen with the latest Anuran?  I added some code a few version back that tried to address the tray icon issue in Win2k.  Also, you say the tray menu does appear.  Does anything happen when you choose Options from the menu?

I busted out my Win2k install discs and am installing them in a VM as we speak.  I'll let you know if I find anything amiss.

I tried it today and it works fine on my Win 2k PC at work (although the systray icons look slightly different). Now I have it at home and at work!

Great software.

Thanks,

Geoff

Great to hear; thanks for the report.  You can apply this patch on your 2k system to get them looking more similar:

Hi,
First of all, thanx for this tool, great and useful software  :Thmbsup:

I have a feature suggest: what about a schedule telling Anuran when to popup ?
Something like : 0800-1200;1400-2000@(mon-fri) to tell Anuran to pop-up between 8am and 12pm, and then between 2pm and 6pm from monday to friday.

So, what do you think about it ?

That sounds like it might be complicated to implement within Anuran, and at that point it starts to become an appointment minder, which I'm always going to try to respectfully argue against.

If you already use an appointment minder like EssentialPIM or Outlook these have the kind of popups you want, plus they can execute programs if you tell them to. If you don't have or want EPIM or Outlook, I use Pegtop PStart's launcher, which very reliably can automatically launch programs based on an hourly, daily, yearly schedule. It's good stuff and I recommend it every time I get a chance to.

So, where I'm going with this, if we program Anuran with the ability to launch the popup if Anuran is ever re-launched when it is already running, we can patch in this behavior without adding to the complexity of the software.

One benefit of this is that if you already have a schedule set into appointment software, there's no need to duplicate it within Anuran. Just add Anuran.exe as a program to run on the appointment.

Of course, if this is a fairly easy thing to implement, that's a different story.

As far as implementation goes, we could do worse than uTorrent's scheduler:

NANY 2010 Release: Anuran


Just substitute "Full speed" and "Limited" with "Popup Enabled" and "Popup Disabled."

I've been meaning to reply to migounanounet's post.  Migounanounet, I really appreciate the feedback and feature suggestion but I have no plans to implement any sort of scheduler in Anuran.  Apologies.

Like most here I was most impressed by what I saw, but won't be using it till I have the ability to export readily in either CSV or Tab format, ready for analysis in a spreadsheet or DB.  My quick review didn't show those capabilities - apologies if I missed them.  My suggestions specifically:
- Export option in CSV and/or Tab format - single line to allow importing each record
- Timestamp output option compatible with spreadsheet (Excel) import

Enhancements I'd love, but not as important
- A project field - with pull-down and ready editing - with default persistence of last project

1) CSV export shouldn't be difficult, I'll add it to the ToDo.
2) I'll try to finagle this in as well.  Which format did you have in mind?

The reason that number two is not as simple as it may seem is that Anuran has no concept of dates.  From the beginning, it was decided to keep the timestamp options as free-form as possible in staying with Anuran, in general, being as free-form as possible.  In other words, a user could configure Anuran with no timestamps if they wished.

Enhancements I'd love, but not as important
- A project field - with pull-down and ready editing - with default persistence of last project

This may be outside the scope of Anuran but I'll add it to my ToDo as well.  Thanks for the feedback.
