NANY 2012 RELEASE: Christian Prayer Minder

Congratulation on this fine program of yours, kyrathaba. Really impressive!

I would like to send a link to this thread, but the right margin on page 1 is being cut off, making it very hard to read. The people I want to tell, might easily give up all this scrolling in both directions, just to read the text. Do you have the patience to re-edit the images, to make the page fit a normal browser view, please?

@Curt: Sure. A matter of a few seconds' edit only.  I've put just one image per row in the table. Does it look better now? If not, I can remove them altogether.

Thanks for promoting the program.

v1.0.4.9 will be out soon, and will feature extensive reporting of statistics (i.e., total words across all prayers, total unique words (respecting case), total unique words (irrespective of case), average word length, average time between prayer entries, etc., etc.)

Curt, this happened immediately upon loading the application following installation? Where the installer asks, as it's about to exit, if you want to go ahead and run the program?

Did you install while logged in as Admin?

Can you translate the text pictured in your screenshot into English for me?

Hey Curt, I may have found the culprit that caused your fatal error.

Make sure the following directories are deleted, along with all their files:

C:\Users\Curt\AppData\Roaming\Kyrathasoft\KyrPrayerMinder\
C:\Program Files (x86)\Kyrathasoft\KyrPrayerMinder\  (or wherever you installed the app)

Then, try installing version 1.0.4.9 which I've uploaded. There's a link in the OP of this thread. Lemme know if it works.

Still would like that translation, even if this works for you.

I should add that v1.0.4.9 doesn't complete the implementation of reporting. However, I'll release v1.0.5.0 as soon as I get the reporting interface completed.

sorry that I didn't come back to answer your questions, but it has been night around here - and now I am off to work. Anyway, you solved the problem, thank you, ehh... that problem! I have unchecked "Start with Windows" because I use a startup manager to delay CPM's launching - I start it Minimized to tray. I have also unchecked both 'Show splash' and show 'Tip of the day'. Nevertheless, they are showing at startup - 'Tip of the day' even from the beginning each time. So I guess it is not saving changes. But maybe that has to do with the way I start it? And following for the first time ever, my startup manager didn't set an icon in the systray.

First of all, I'm glad that your initial problem was solved.

As for the options not seeming to be persisted: Hmm, interesting. The form's closing event calls a method that writes preferences to file. One portion of the code writes these three options as follows:

Code: C#
  1.             using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(path)) {
  2.  
  3.                 int i = 0;
  4.  
  5.                 i = (launchWhenSystemBootsToolStripMenuItem.Checked == true) ? 1 : 0;
  6.                 sw.WriteLine("startWithWindows|" + i.ToString());
  7.  
  8.                 i = (showTheSplashScreenToolStripMenuItem.Checked == true) ? 3000 : 0;
  9.                 sleep_delay = i;
  10.                 sw.WriteLine("splashDuration|" + sleep_delay.ToString());
  11.  
  12.  
  13.                 i = (showDidYouKnowToolStripMenuItem.Checked) ? 1 : 0;
  14.                 sw.WriteLine("showDidYouKnow|" + i.ToString());
  15.  
  16.             }
  17.  

So, in each case, at program startup, these integer values are read from file and converted to menu options being either checked or unchecked.

I'd open the program's AppData folder and try an experiment. Open the program normally and enable these three options, then exit the program normally and examine the three relevant files in the AppData folder. Launch the program normally again (using the installed shortcut rather than a startup manager, and NOT minimized to tray). Disable the options and repeat the experiment. I'm guessing that there's something you're doing as a power user that average users aren't doing, that's causing the issue.

preferences.txt is changing okay as it should. However, something on my Vista is not in agreement with CPK; only the first installation was recorded to Start with Windows; now it won't even do that. I have some other problems with my computer, so I suggest you forget about all this. I will be back to test if your next version is acceptable to my sick PC - I want it to!

I've got it running properly on two test PCs here, and a friends WinXP PC. Dunno about Vista.

Okay, several rapidfire releases (yes, I'm a fan of incremental dev/release). Available this evening: v1.0.5.5, featuring compilation of reports:
