It sounds like what I mentioned above, that 30ms is too fast for your computers for some reason. Give me an email address, and I'll send you a test build to see if we can work through the issue.
Delete the underscores.
By the way, I'm having the same issue on my 2.1GHz Athlon dual-core desktop, which is only a year old and far from slow.
I have the same problem... when eXpresso is paused, I can't double-click anything. Double-clicking a file turns into a single-click, triggering the rename thingy; double-clicking a module in my programming IDE only selects the module instead of (the double-click behavior) opening it for editing; double-clicks just seem to get halfway "eaten"...
I'm pretty fast with double-clicks, but I doubt I've got down to 30 ms...
"The question I would like to know, is the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. All we know about it is that the Answer is Forty-two, which is a little aggravating."
LOL, yeah, the fastest I can get in testing is 95-100ms. I'll send you my latest test build as well.
Sorry guys. I compiled the wrong build of eXpresso. :/
I was working with wraithdu and my build (merging) and mixed them up a bit. Sorry
So in other words, I had the working version of 1.2, while you guys had this dumb thing that didn't work.
The "Restart" message box was just something I was using to test with.
Anyway, redownload the file, it 's updated.
The launcher is still horribly broken (sorry).
1) This is the correct code. FindProcDLL stores its output in $R0.
StrCmp $R0 "1" "" "Restart2"
Once you fix that, you can't start eXpresso at all because the launcher finds itself and quits.
2) Once eXpresso reloads there are now three instances of eXpresso.exe. FindProcDLL is utterly useless at this point and will find some instance of eXpresso.exe. You cannot make it work this way.
3) Ignoring the previous two critical errors, you are still creating a race condition. Once you reload eXpresso, it's a race to see if the original launcher can write the INI file before the new launcher tries to read it. You cannot build a reliable app that operates that way.
I stand by my original recommendation to stick with the loop I wrote. It's short, simple, it works, and uses 0 CPU to function.
But the refresh works fine now :/
I tried, and no, it doesn't. Aside from all I said above, the default install throws this error on refresh:
Recompile the launcher. Don't even hesitate. Just do it :/
I've got a test build out to a few people for testing, and if all goes well I'll send it on to you to merge or replace how you wish. It is again vastly improved over my last one. It makes use of Data\Settings for the INI directory, so the INI is never moved, solving this whole problem.
I'm considering publishing it as the last beta in the Cafe Mod branch, then you can fork off eXpresso from there with adding your new functionality (Convey, etc). I have to talk to Zach about that first. It is branded as Cafe though, so you'd have to do you find / replace again.
Hi, my name is Augusto Croppo. I am here to say thank you very much to the developer of the old C.A.F.E software, which was the inspiration to my own development: iBin, a portable recycling bin.
Anyone interested and know more, give a look:
Nice, but isn't that self promotion? :/
Unless this is open source of course
Edit: Yeah, you're self-promoting. --> https://portableapps.com/node/15746#comment-137694
Is a open source project. I read the terms and conditions.
As the developer of iBin, of course you can offer this as a portable app if you have created a PortableApps format version of this, by posting in the Beta Testing forum:
If it's not yet in the PortableApps format, and you would like someone to put it into the PortableApps format, you can post a request in the Request Apps forum:
I'm not going to argue about self-promotion; however, the most effective ways to introduce your app as a portable app are the ones listed above, rather than buried in the thread of another post.
Also, you will get more positive responses if you follow the posting guidelines.
For beta testing: https://portableapps.com/node/11965
For requesting apps: https://portableapps.com/node/4507
I like the idea of a portable recycle bin, and I'll be happy to beta test when you post it.
I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
You got it!
I want the iBin part of any suite of portable applications. Soon as possible I will post in the beta testing forum.
Yeah, but in the future, please don't bury your post inside another person's. I don't think wraithdu appreciated it either, or bump a year old topic.
Just so you know, Open Source means that you distribute the Source Code or Script. And one more thing. You can't post links in your signature, that's considered spam here. Just move the link into your homepage.
Hope iBin get's in the Applications section, and Welcome to PortableApps.com
Has anyone else noticed that the eXpresso.ini file is deleted on exit!! Each time you close the application it deletes the .ini file thus causing lose of all the saved associations and keywords etc....
Are you sure the INI is actually deleted?
Last time I checked, the eXpresso launcher moved the INI file from Data\Settings to App\eXpresso on eXpresso's startup, and moved the INI back the other way on eXpresso' exit. That could look like deleting if you don't look into Data\Settings...
Update your app. You can find out the cause for this and what's really happening in the posts above.
I've a problem with eXpresso 1.2. When i try to use it from the "eXpresso\eXpresso.exe" it says:
"eXpresso cannot be started. You may wish to re-install to fix this issue. (ERROR: \Could not be found)"
First try was updating from 1.1. After that i did a clean "installation". Both times same result. The "\eXpresso\App\eXpresso\eXpresso.exe" works, but i can't use that one from the portableapps launcher and i don't know if it will save correctly the settings.
1.1 works perfect.
Using XP SP3 and portableapps folder is in hard disk "E:\PORTABLE APPS\StartPortableApps\PortableApps\eXpresso" (could this be the problem?)
1.2 was a horrible release. I've got 1.2.1 almost ready. So right now, all you can really do is wait for it or use 1.1 for the moment.
Again, please don't remove the contents of your posts - they're useful for historical purposes. Just put the "outdated" text at the top and in the title as "[Outdated] Whatever".
History is good for a project.

Okay, sorry, I'll put it back in.
