I've emailed Godaddy. Yesterday they couldn't reproduce the issue or anything, and it was fine this morning...hopefully we can find something. Keep trying.

When you try, and if it fails, try to get to my actual site, and see if you can connect. From my experience it will no longer allow any connection to the sites in any ways.

Let me know.

Thanks!

Am I correct in assuming that this is the one that's going to be moved forward on? I'll be using this one from today on. I'll let you know if anything's out of the ordinary.

i wonder if that could be solved with something along the lines of:
Launch:

Exec kvirc.exe.

Please forgive me if I mixed AHK and NSIS.

OliverK! But that check is already there...I think it's just a thing with NSIS. It just renames the config folders/files as there are a lot of them to copy...I had to add a wait into the launcher to help alleviate this issue...the only time it really seems to be an issue now is if the drive is under heavy load at the time of KVIrc launch.

I think I've fixed that for the most part...idk if I can completely rid it of it, but I'm still trying to find a solid way to do it...I might have to get John's help with this one, maybe he knows something that might help me with it.

upgrade process and ms vc++ runtime error

Gizmokid2005,

can i install KVIrc_Portable_4.0.0.0_r3212_Dev_Test_4 over
KVIrc_Portable_4.0.0.0_r3183_Dev_Test_3? or should i uninstall KVIrc_Portable_4.0.0.0_r3183_Dev_Test_3 first?

also, did you happen to notice my comment on the kvirc irc channel about an ms vc++ runtime error occurring while displaying the 'Network Details' dialog box?

thanks for making kvirc portable!

Yes

You can isntall any same version on top of an old one (ie - V4 on v4 and V3 on V3). Right now V3 and V4 are in separate folders.

I did see that, get back on IRC and we can discuss further, typically that's a local PC issue and not a portablization issue.

It seems like your account has been suspended, at least that's what shows up on the page.

I updated to DT7, connected

I updated to DT7, connected to #portableapps and minimized the window. It should minimize to tray only but shows up at the task bar after a second.

The curious thing is that once activated using the task bar (switching window) it only shows the window outline, not any content. This will only show again after double-clicking the system tray icon ..

This is most likely a bug with the svn revision, but I thought I'd post it here so you might update the kvirc portable to another revision later Wink

Yep.

This is related to the SVN version. I update the portable version at least once a month. Now that I can build SVN myself, I'm going to try to keep it updated weekly. I'm having PC issues right now, but as soon as I resolve them I'm going to update the SVN and update KVIrc again.

Your server is down or somehow unaccessable. Completely. Might I suggest hosting on sourceforge or rapidshare or something like that? Besides bandwidth costs money Wink

It's good to see you're still working on this Gizmokid2005. I've been computerless for a while, but I'll still be installing DT9 to my portable drive. I'll be buying a new box soon (hopefully), and I'll be back around as soon as I can with comments, etc. on your new release. Wink Great job man!

Updated

KVIrc Portable has been updated to r3930 which is an RC2 build from SVN.
The launcher has been re-written to better handle data management.
WARNING!!! I noticed some data corruption in very early testing of this implementation, but haven't had issues since. This COULD still be an issue. BACKUP FREQUENTLY!

ETA?

Do they have an ETA on when 4.0 will go final? I'd like to get this official soon after.

Soon?

I've been keeping up on it. They want to go final soon. There's been a lot of talk about finishing up the few things they're working on and then adding stuff in 4.1, etc...but no solid ETA yet, I've heard soon-ish though (ie - the next month or two).

Cool

Ok, cool. 2.0 Format is starting rollout today with a PR of the installer, etc, so we'll be ready to start adding apps again after that. It would be great to get on their radar as their official portable format. I think you staying on top of everything is a great way to do that. Do you want a splash screen so we can start calling this pre-releases? I think there's been enough testing of the launcher to warrant it.

Yeah

I'm always sticking around in there, they've made a few changes to help with portability on my end and seem to enjoy the idea of the portable version. I'll check with them and see if I can get a better timeline for the final release of V4.

If you'd like to do a PR splash, I have no problems with it.
