[Bug] KchmViewer Portable fails to load recent files having non-Latin characters in their paths

Submitted by DabjeilQutwyngo on March 6, 2016 - 12:51am

The Portable App environment writes Unicode data as ANSI into the registry, which results in that KchmViewer Portable fails to open recent files having non-Latin characters in their paths.

Here is the screenshot about what happens when recent files are opened from the File menu. The word “Английский” should be instead of the unprintable characters between words "Category" and "English".

[Fixed] Sigil - pyvenv FileWrite missing

Submitted by softfoot on February 26, 2016 - 4:57am

In the absence of a specific Sigil forum I'll post this here --- feel free to move it if it's inappropriate here.

I have v0.9.3 installed and runningOK under Win7 64b - but when I install ANY plugin they refuse to run.

eg "Flightcrew" when run against a valid ePub (that validates OK with the built in validation tool) reports an initial error of
"Error Parsing Result XML: Premature end of document".

When I click on the "Details" button I get "Fatal Python error: unable to load the file system codec. ImportError: No module named 'encodings'".

SunBird don't start

Submitted by Wilfried54 on August 14, 2014 - 10:30am


I just downloaded SunBird and extracted on XP (Virtual PC 2007) machine. When I try to run it, I get the splash screen for a moment and then nothing. If I check in task manager, I see the executable running for a second or so.

If I copy the folder to the host machine (Vista 64 bit) then it runs.

Is there something I can try / debug to check what is wrong or has someone else ever had this problem?

thanks, Wilfried

Sunbird: Where are data stored?

Submitted by Francisco Torres on July 5, 2014 - 4:26pm

The program works fairly well, but I tried to move it to another computer by copying all the program directories and once there I had the disagreable surprise that it was empty, no data, no information, was shown and I lost all the information.

What did I made wrong, which file should I have taken with me to the new computer?

[Fixed] Stickies won't open on my computer

Submitted by Liz on June 26, 2014 - 11:29pm

My computer was being really weird so I decided to restart and didn't shut Stickies down first. Now it won't open. When I click on the icon in the Platform, StickiesPortable.exe shows up in Task Manager and then disappears again.

I've tried installing a new copy of Stickies and that also won't run. I copied the entire original folder to another computer and tried it there; it works fine.
