(MD5: ef9c89fd23f2ed5ea28cd07370d6ec91)

Release Notes:

Pre-Release 5 (2008-04-16):

  • Fixed a couple small typos in the language code breaking functionality, works now.

Pre-Release 4 (2008-03-24):

  • Removed upgrade code as it kept seriously screwing up.

Pre-Release 3 (2008-03-24):

  • Settings are now copied from previous location to new one.

Pre-Release 2 (2008-03-24):

  • Settings now stored in Data\settings, apposed to Data\.

Pre-Release 1 (2008-03-22): Initial Release

  • language to now be automatically set by PAM language in future version of the menu
  • your playlist and encoding directory will be set as \Documents\Music on the first run if those folder exist

PLEASE READ

What I am looking for testing on in this release are the following items. 1. If your drive has a \Documents\Music setup in the root of the drive, let me know if that is what your playlist and encoding directory are set to on first run. If you do not have that setup, let me know if it sets those to just your current drive letter. 2. After those paths on set on first run, change them to a different directory, and tell me whether or not those settings get overwritten or stay the same on next launch. 3. Check that your drive letter changes between PCs.

Thanks, and let me know on those issues. I'd appreciate if John and some others could check and make sure my XML file handling part looks like it's all right.

1. without those folders, the output dir was set to the root of the drive
2. after changing the path, closing, and relaunching BonkEncPortable, the changed path remained as the output path.
3. can't test yet, only 1 PC currently available.

Update Installer

Did you update the installer to move the file for anyone that has it in the old location?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Was Going To

I was going to, but for some reason I decided against it. I can't remember why. But it makes sense to right now.

I'll update it.

Lol

You're right. I have no idea how that happened. I'll look into it.

Edit: Updated to a pre-release 4. The upgrade code had some issues for some reason. If someone has some upgrade code that works, let me know.
