Issues with 1.26.01
« on: April 09, 2010, 04:47:40 AM »
A couple of things that I hope I can get sorted -- when updating the last TimeZone I ran into these issues:

1. Double Clicking on the dcUpdater file could not install

Note the missing "Installation To:" even though the following was set in the dcUpdater file:
Code: Text
  1.   <InstallDirectory>Plugins</InstallDirectory>
  2.   <BaseDirectory>Find and Run Robot</BaseDirectory>
  3.  

2. Running dcUpdater from Start Menu produces a lot of duplicate files

I've mentioned this before, but not sure if I'm doing something not entirely right?

3. Signalling FARR
Code: Text
  1.   <SignalForUpdate>FindAndRunRobot.exe</SignalForUpdate>
  2.  


I thought the above would signal FARR to reload the plugin? I'm (almost) sure that didn't happen. It's meant to reload and run through the Init isn't it??

Anyway... I was hoping to cure my confusion...

it should.

try selecting each of those duplicates, and see what the "Installation To:" directories are.. are they all different? that may point you to the duplicate .dcupdate files.  if they aren't different, let me know.

OK, here are the three results for FARR:
I can see two has a relative path and the other absolute, but there is only one installation on my HD. I've just searched for FindAndRunRobot.dcupdate and there's one in Program Files\DcUpdater\Installables\FindAndRunRobot.dcupdate, but that's not one of the paths...

And what's now really weird is that the display is back to just one  :-\ :-\ :-\

...but it's back to three after a restart  :huh: :huh: :huh:

I just thought I would post a note here that I am having the exact same problem. I have FARR 12 times, and the plugins 12 times each as well.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, in case that is helpful.

What are all the DcUpdate File paths?

With mine a couple were different -- but pointing to the same file (which I thought explained it a bit): one was relative the other absolute...
