help debugging startup, loss of czb package "tm" (timer)
« on: February 21, 2012, 10:06:55 AM »
FARR did some updates yesterday, I am now running v 2.104.02, but when FARR launches I get an error "while loading C:\Program Files" (error shown below).  Most of FARR seems to be running, but I have lost the timer feature.  When I "Click to examine and configure plugins", the "CZB Pack" does not show up in that first list, but when I click "Check for plugin updates", it shows CZB_Pack v.0.24 and says it is installed and up to date.  I downloaded the CZB_Pack and unzipped it into the plugin folder, but no affect on the startup or loss of "tm".

I did find "pluginlog.txt" and there's an "Error initializing plugin do_init function" for FarrFox that's been logging regularly since August of 2011, but FARRFox is working.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.  Also interested in disabling the automatic updates.

Can't help other than to confirm that I see the same sort of thing...

CZB-Pack is not listed as installed, but the updater says 0.24 IS installed and uptodate.

I miss the functionality of cc (the CharMap replacement)

No luck yet, but thankful for the suggestions.  I restored an older FARR.ini, and hunted for (but couldn't find) user variables associated with Timer (at the bottom of FARR.ini).

Are you still getting the error "while loading C:\Program Files" dialog when FARR launches?

IIUC, the portion of FindAndRunRobot.ini to look in is inside the [ExtraSettings] section.  Mine is likely different, but FWIW, the portion of the ini file that may be relevant starts like:

Code: Text
  1. [ExtraSettings]
  2. UserVars=...
  3.  

I believe it's somewhere within the ... that is relevant.

Yes, still getting the error.  I did find the UserVars section, but nothing in there related to Timer.  This is the only line:

UserVars=[Common]>n>//put user defined variables here>n>Var=Value

Hmm...

Is it possible there is some other FindAndRunRobot.ini file being referenced?

I'm fuzzy on what ConfigDir.ini does, but is it possible that is affecting the behavior of your installation?

When examining user vars, do it from within FARR options, then you don't have to worry about looking at the right file:

Solved.  Thank a ton Mouser.  There were are rack of variables in there for Timer.  I deleted them all, exited, reloaded, and have no error messages and the timer is working again.  Bummer of a time sink, but so happy to be back on the bus!

Peace!
