Error '15.0' is not a valid floating point value
« on: September 20, 2006, 02:54:20 AM »
Hej,

I have been using Screencaptor for awhile now it is great.  Today I tried to use it and I get a ScreenShot Captor window poping up that says, "15.0 is not a valid floating point value"  I tried to reinstall it (without un-installing) but I still get the same error.

Anyone have any ideas?

can you mail me your screenshotcaptor.ini file and i will be able to figure out the problem; sounds like i may have introduced a bug in latest version.  it will be in c:\program files\screenshotcaptor

mail to mouser@donationcoder.com

i just remembered this issue came up once in the past:
http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=1579.0

it has to do with different floating point formats in different language locales.

i'll update screenshot captor with similar fix.

Aha, I recently changed my formatting on my PC.  When I get back to work next week, I will check it.  Unless, of course, you have a fix... :D

ill be updating a version not susceptible to this but for now if you just delete (or rename) your ScreenshotCaptor.ini file in the program directory the error will dissapear. (or if you have settings you like you could just open up the ini and change the .0 numbers to ,0

the problem is that it saved the file in one locale, and you changed to another, and now when reading the ini its getting confused when it finds certain numbers with . in then when it expects ,
