Re: Problem with code snippet

Thanks for that Mike -- it works.

Until I find the next bug :)

No, seriously, thank you.

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

I've added a link to the installation guidance in the known problems list, for now. Still need to think of a long term solution for communicating it... Re conversion, once the Task fact definition has been created, I reckon you could use the Change Any Fact Tag plugin to do the conversion -- you won...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Ron, you've somehow got an old copy of the beta -- can you reinstall the plugin from the post at the top of this thread and let me know what happens. It should be attempting to download a zip file not a chm one (which doesn't exist to be downloaded).

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Exactly the same, Ron, with underscores in the file names?

Can you post a screenshot of your .dat directory (picture worth 1000 words).

Re: Problem with code snippet

This is weird -- it fails consistently for me if I do that. The extraction completes before the loop is entered -- is that not the case for you? If the directory is initially empty except for the zip file itself, dest:items().count is calculated after the extraction completes *including* the Help di...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Would it be possible for those who are getting errors to clarify -- is it the download failing or the extraction.) Post a screenshot of the error message please, if you haven't already done so. Also, can people try the Download report button on the Tools tab and report back whether the report was in...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Mike, I'm glad I'm not the only one clutching at straws! And nobody should apologize for being late to the party! It's a long lasting party to ensure the plugin is valuable to as many people as possible. (Once it's released -- and fH version 7 is available -- I'll ask for more suggestions to improve...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Ron, sorry to hear you've been in hisotital -- hope you're on the mend now.

A few questions:

1. What operating system are you running?
2. Does the download work if you change the protocol in the lua from https to http?
3. Can you download and extract the file manually as Valkrider did?

That's exactly what you should have. I'm stumped as to why the plugin doesn't download it.

Brent -- no worries -- I'm going to leave it here for three weeks before publishing it, so no need to test it on the go!

Re: FH Version 7

And maybe consider moving to Windows 8 which doesn't go end of life until 2023. There are loads of things you can do to make it look more like Windows 7.

Re: FH Version 7

Which virus protection are you using, and has the supplier confirmed they will continue to update it for Windows 7? Nobody wants to force you to spend money on a new PC, but equally we don't want to be advising you what to do if your research gets corrupted or locked away from your access.

It's an iup webbrowser control, so IE (any external links called as using IE as well, rather than the default browser, but that's not configurable).

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Colin,

The version in the first post has been updated to use a different Help mechanism. It is that new Help mechanism that needs testing in your environment.

Re: Problem with code snippet

Best publish it with a warning then... However, the snippet doesn't report an error in any circumstances, so I'm not convinced it's useful.

Re: Problem with code snippet

To be honest, the sleep statement is somewhat redundant... as far as I can tell, isn't invoked until after the extract completes -- unless you can see otherwise.
