Works fine.

There's a twenty second delay when I restarted, after initial setup, from the splash screen to the program showing anything useful. Beyond that, no problems.

EDIT: Nevermind. I just installed Songbird on my HD, and it's a bit slow on it's startup anyway. There are no performance issues.

Hey! Where'd it go?

Unsure the problem

It does not seem to change the drive letter because I used it on one computer and pointed it to my portable music directory and moved to another computer with a different drive letter and could not find the directory.

May the Shwartz be with you

Folders left behind:

C:\Windows\Temp\Songbird
C:\Windows\Temp\Songbird\DownloadDevice
C:\documents and settings\Username\My files\My music\Songbird Music (path translated from German)

Other stuff:

  • get rid of old GetParameters.nsh, registry.nsh
  • replace ReplaceInFile.nsh and StrRep.nsh by the newer ReplaceInFileWithTextReplace.nsh
  • you could use the custom ReadINIStrWithDefault.nsh instead of the standard ReadINIStr function
  • where is Ryan McCue's copyright?

Confirmed

With admin privs on XP Pro SP3. I'll work on the files first, need more testing for the registry though.

As for the copyright, I must've missed it when I copied my header over it...I'll readd it into the source..

But going on what I've seen here, I'm just going to re-write the launcher, it seems as if there is some stuff that has been deprecated that I can remove, and some stuff that I'll need to add.

Thank You!!

I waited ages for that one!
Just installed it and everything seems to work fine, even with updates of the plugins.
I also did an update from Songbird Portable 1.0 Development Test 1 with a custom skin, everything worked out fine.
Great work, I love it!

we are at 269 downloads since 2300EDT and it's now 1430edt, so that would be just over 63 hours.

Funny coincidence is that I brought my external drive to work today to fix up some folders and music attributes, and now I can update it with the new Songbird too!

Don't be an uberPr∅. They are stinky.

I majorly missed this deadline. I had some unexpected family things to take care of and didn't get the time I wanted to work on the launcher. I'm also having issues with getting some code ironed out. I am hoping to have this up soon.... Smile

Rename your SongbirdPortable\Data\profile folder to "old_profile" and launch it again, See if it starts up. It might be something corrupted in the profile.

I'm not sure. You can check with the songbird folks, there might be a file or two that needs to be updated/deleted/fixed. But there are a lot of files that deal with your local profile, so I can't say for sure what exactly will fix it.

Try Reinstalling. It sounds like there is some type of issue with permissions, or all the files that you need aren't installed for whatever reason.

No

I did reinstall Songbird 1.2. After another installation I see the same errors plus an additional one (I guess it is due to the Add-on-page loaded after installation):

Error: SQLite compile step:
select count(*) from cities
caused the error
no such table: cities

Strange: Name of the directory is correct and files are found in the directory... Wonder if the length of the path is too long? Could that be?

what do you mean by local installation? I do not have admin rights on this computer and I installed Songbird on a C:-drive which is the local one...

I rather try it on a stick...

Edit: and the installation on the stick shows the same loading problems...
I reported the problem as Bug 17186 in the Songbird Bugzilla

Leaving traces

I have a copy of my portableapps directory in my work PC, something like c:\aa\aa\Portableapps.
Yesterday, I ran Songbird while my USB key with the portableapps was in. I am not sure which Songbird I ran, I believe the harddrive one but it could be the USB.
Next time I checked my USB key, it had a E:\AA\AA\PortableApps\Songbird\Data directory.

What I think happenned

While trying to get through to my doctor on the phone, I tried a few things and here is what I belive happened:
I installed Songbird portable on the hard drive in: c:\aa\aa\PortableApps\

I played a bit with it and though I can put it on my USB drive so copied the SongbirdPortable directory there.

Now when I launch songbird from the USB drive, it creates the following direcrtory structure on my USB drive:

E:\AA\AA\PortableApps\SongbirdPortable\Data\profile\db

In the db directory, I have 2 files:
main@library.songbirdnest.com
web@library.songbirdnest.com

I hope this helps

Replace

Your launcher replaces $LASTDRIVE by $CURRENTDRIVE. I think it should sometimes replace $LASTDIRECTORY by $EXEDIR.

You could look at the Dia Portable launcher (sorry for this ad :))

Thanks Gizmo

Thanks again for taking this up. Basically I'm loving it Biggrin

Can I suggest people have a look at the Aero Bird Pro Feather.

EDIT: I've found that since I updated to DT2 Songbird seems to have issues loading up skins. Not sure why. Didn't see in DT1.

EDIT2: Actually on second look it appears this issue affects all addons. Can anyone else confirm this?

Go to your Data\profile\

Go to your Data\profile\ folder and copy the extensions.ini to pastebin or something, or even put it here in some code tags, and I"ll take a look, I have a feeling that's what the problem is.

EDIT: Just regressed to DT1 to test if the issue was isolated to DT2 and my beloved Aero Bird Pro feather loaded without any issues, oh and all my other extensions Biggrin So yeah appears the issue is isolated to DT2.

You could try adding a start delimiter, i.e. "="

${ReplaceInFile} "$PROFILEDIRECTORY\extensions.ini" "=$LASTEXEDIR\" "=$EXEDIR\"

Maybe?

[Edit] Or maybe try using the ReplaceInFile.nsh with StrRep.nsh instead of the TextReplace plugin...

No

this is exactly how it's set in the FFP launcher. I just have to modify my code to do better searches...the issue, I believe, is that the ini file isn't getting updated like it should, so it's searching on an empty string and filling the extensions.ini with jibberish...

That's what I expected. I'll work on this and hopefully take care of it.

In the meantime, you can add this line to it, and you should be able to use DT2 w/o issues.

LastExeDir=F:\PortableApps\SongbirdPortable

And then delete your extensions.ini, and it should work.

StrCpy

That thing you were talking to John about with trimming a GUID after ConfigRead. You only need one StrCpy, not two.

StrCpy $0 `"{95e21257-dd32-4a4c-a8cf-b404864bc2a8}");`
StrCpy $1 $0 -6 2 ; 95e21257-dd32-4a4c-a8cf-b404864bc2a8

(String length of $1 is 6 less than $0, and starts at the second character after the start).

Also remember that if you feel like it you can add the "{ to the ConfigRead and then you can just do StrCpy $1 $0 -4.

I'm just using some ${StrStrip} for now. It's working well, might be a little different than StrCpy, but it gets the job done, and it's easier for me to maneuver the way I need it.

I've got a good start on this, the last thing I have to do is modify the drive letter and the .tree file so I can get that changed. If I can get it figured out tonight, I hope for another DT. If not, it'll be later this week (though hopefully by tomorrow night).

Changing Drive Letters

I am trying to use Songbird portable on a flash drive with my music, but the drive letter changes from time to time. How do I give Songbird a relative path to my music? The library still shows up, but tells me the path to my watch folder is unavailable, and all the songs are unplayable because it can't find the directory.

It seems like instructions or a default way to do this would be a necessity to make it really portable, although it is already convenient as is.

End Result

That will be the end result. But this is currently a development test while we iron these issues out. The new Songbird release changed a few things and the older launcher is being updated to handle it all. In the end, you'll have Songbird Portable and all your music on one device and be able to use it everywhere.

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

Great job

You should now think about compacting the files as it is extremely unresponsive on an old PC with USB1.1 and vista. It works, slowly but it works, when it is compacted.

Thanks lot!

On windows 7 (build 7100)

It's creating Songbird2 folders in both my roaming and local AppData folders. Only a minor issue, but It's still stopping 100% portability. The first folder in Roaming is Roaming/SongBird2/Crash Reports/InstallTime and the second is Second is Local/SongBird2/Profiles

As Giz said

It makes these folders but deletes them on close. I've tested and watched it remove these folders on XP SP3 though can't test Win7 or Vista. Have you checked to make sure these are removed once you close Songbird?

Yes, the launch always takes quite a while, even non-portable songbird takes a bit to load up. If this isn't a fresh install, try that. Or else, give it some more time. I can't really fix anything if I can't figure out what's wrong. You can try the local version too and see if you get the same issue.
