DcUpdater fails when checking for updates
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:56:19 PM »
Hi,

When I ask ScreenShotCaptor to check for updates, I get: "DcUpdater Warning: No valid packages found (with current search restrictions)".

In the operation log I find the following:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. ERROR: Config File '-dontofferdcupdaterpage' could not be loaded by TinyXml lib - Failed to open file
  2. ScreenshotCaptor: needs check
  3. DcUpdater Program: needs check

Any clue?

I believe this was a bug I fixed on the last update of DcUpdater..  Yes I see the changelog for the most recent version lists it:

I have manually installed DcUpdater 1.32.01 and the problem seems to have disappeared (the actual updating of ScreenShotCaptor seems to face a slow download issue, I'll report back on this when I'm back home this evening).

P.S. how comes searching the forum for "No valid packages found" or for "DcUpdater Warning" didn't give me the answer (if there is a "string match" search option I couldn't find it)?

Searching is always a bit of a cat and mouse game.. Had you guessed to search for "dontofferdcupdaterpage" you would have gotten some good results..

well... search engines are supposed to allow you to find what you're looking for with any string found in the actual text...

Seems the search engine for this forum is very poor--or I don't know how to use it...

I think it was just an unlucky case where there were very few posts about this bug and with little details.
For better or worse, this has always been a fairly low-tech site with lots of info scattered everywhere, and the best way to get a good answer is to do what you did and post a question..
Hopefully what we lack in organization and polish we make up for in friendliness.

IIUC you searched for something which wasn't there.

Usually, the best thing for this even before searching is to update to the latest version, which would have solved your issue with no problems.
