Is CHS 2.00.01 out of Beta ?
« on: May 06, 2011, 01:22:48 PM »
I just downloaded an update to Clipboard Help+Spell using DcUpdater.

On the DcUpdater interface, it lists the latest version of CHS as 1.47.01 from 03/19/2011

This is the same as shown on the CHS page on Donationcoder.com:
http://www.donationc...pandspell/index.html

But, when I downloaded the update using DcUpdater, and clicked to install it, the installer reports that it is installing Clipboard Help+Spell version 2.00.01

So, should I consider Clipboard Help+Spell version 2.00.01 to be out of the Beta stage ?

It's still in beta, but it's safe to install and use from now on.  Just don't try to go backwards.

... Just don't try to go backwards.

So I guess that the new version modifies the database structure in a way that makes the database incompatible with previous versions ...

I'll backup my current CHS folder and run with v2 ... I'll let you know if I find any issues.

I don't know if this is an "Undesired program feature" (Bug), or if it indicates a problem on my system ...

When I run CHS (Windows Startup), during loading or shortly after completion of loading, I get an error message box:

I am using CHS version 2.00.01

I have seen this error message-box twice and both times were shortly after a reboot/power-up so I assume it could be related to loading CHS at runtime. The Application (CHS) was not identified in the error message so the first time it happened I didn't immediately connect the error message to CHS and I ended up dismissing the error message without copying it. So I only know the error message was similar the second time, but the details could have been different each time.

If I dismiss the error message-box, CHS continues to run, but in both cases I closed CHS and restarted it so I don't know if CHS is actually functional after the error message.

This is an older machine and during Startup, CPU usage is pegged at 100% and things are very slow for a few minutes, so it could be some sort of timeout issue.
