 :P  Awesome little app!!!  I was wondering if you might be willing to create something similar or based of Anuran to serve a specific purpose i have in mind.   Your app seems like it's basic framework would be perfect.  This app could eventually help a lot of people with a particular disease.

Please PM me if you are interested. 

Thank you.

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.

Hm. I think it might be because I recently turned on DEP on this machine. I'll try disabling it and let you know what happens.

Yyyyep, turning off DEP "fixed" the problem. Maybe you could enable DEP on your dev machine and see what happens? I'd really like to run with as few exceptions as possible.

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

This is a great little app. I found my pop-up sound. Enjoy.

There is this one, but it's a little much.

Hm, yes, Anuran still doesn't 'ship' with any sound files.

Request: bundle at least one .wav file with Anuran, and have it pre-selected as the default event sound.

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?

[...] if the entry was blank, it would re-use the previously known good entry to populate the next popup.  Does that make more sense?

Yes, that would be nice! I had not considered that.

+1

I finally got to update - I kept downloading new updates & 'forgetting' to install them. I know I can check for updates via systray context menu (but I havent been using app in a while).
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?

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.

I had a similar question, but maybe this is a really a DCUpdater feature request?

Edit: (A feature request to which the all-seeing mouser responded instantly and positively.)

Two bug reports and a comment:

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.

Don't know whether this is relevant, but:
a. Anuran is installed 2 levels down in my Program Files folder, not immediately under Program files.
b. My log folder is in my data hierarchy, not in the default under the program folder.

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.

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

A quick heads up. Have not had a chance to install v 1.0.20 yet, but v 19 has not popped up automatically since I installed it this morning. Been rushed, so did not realize this until just now.

Edit: I restarted Anuran, and later it did pop up, but without remembering the previous entry - I guess that's to be expected.
Edit2: And it's now remembering previous entries as well.
Edit3: Actually it's inconsistent: sometimes it remembers the previous entry, sometimes not! I can't see a pattern.

I installed v *.20, will see how the archiving goes later tonight -- yes, the computer is on all night, adding to my carbon footprint :down:

This morning I deleted the old change log in res (no, it was not read-only), and when I installed *.20 just now, the new one was copied into res as it should be. Go figure.

The daily scheduled archiving is still not working (v *.20) - missed its scheduled archive the past 2 nights.

Another build? I need to sleep less.

BUG: Anuran>Archive>Archive logs daily at: I like the "Archive logs daily at" option, but it doesn't seem to work if Anuran isn't running at the very moment the logs are supposed to rotate. On startup, Anuran should check to see if that point in time has passed, and archive the current.anu. This is (or should be) the behavior for the "Archive logs every" option as well. Times should be based on current.anu's origin date.

Might need someone to confirm the above bug.

E: looks like jdm's experience is the same as mine.
