Update Check
« on: January 17, 2013, 03:58:49 AM »
Very strange. Since yesterday the update check from CH+S doesn't work at all. Could someone do me a favour and try checking from the Help menu to see if it's just me...?

Very odd. Mine is still not working. BTW, where on earth does CH+S keep all it's settings? I've un-installed, deleted remaining folders and re-installed, but it still retains it's settings as I had them! Is there something stashed away in the registry that I need to remove so I can achieve a clean install and test again?

Not in registry.
It will be in your User's Documents folder, under DonationCoder\ClipboardHelpAndSpell.

(unless you are running it portably).

Don't know how I missed that. However, update still does not work. No response when I click 'Check for Updates'. Firewall is off, nothing else to block it. Very, very strange...

The Check for Updates lines are not working for me now either.

I want to congratulate mouser on Clipboard Help+Spell. It's a terrific program, and I run it all the time. I saw the high praise and great prominence given to another clipboard program, Save.Me, at a major download website and was lulled into assuming it was the best of its kind. I was very disappointed in it, and I was very glad to find that Clipboard Help+Spell is far better.

I especially love the sounds. I have had to right-click twice on my Mozilla browsers to ensure that they got the new text when I copied. So many times they have pasted the next-to-last text. When I hear that sound I know I only have to click once.

Thanks very much for the nice words cc.

I will check the update code.. I have a new theory that it might actually be checking for updates but not reporting anything when it sees you have the latest version -- if so i'll fix that.

I checked About, and mine is not up to date. If I go back to the original download I won't lose any of my clips, will I?

I have another problem to report. Sometimes on my 2 GB XP I have a crisis of responsiveness, and I click out everything I can think of, including Clipboard Help+Spell. I have found that when I bring it back, it doesn't start recording new clips for a long time. Today it was a matter of hours. The sound still hasn't come back.

not sure what you mean about going back to original download but if you install the new version you will of course not lose clips.
try installing latest version.

That's what I meant, the download link on this site.
