Loosing settings with 2.6.4

Postby rouven » Tue Mar 27, 2007 12:01 am

Hi,
i really would like to help keep this bug out of 2.6.4. how do u write the settings? to the local disk or registry? i don't see any suspicious entries in the registry, so i assume it's file based?

i have this errors in my registry monitor a few times for different libraries:
Code: Select all
48679   17:49:03,2461072   UniUploader.exe   2004   QueryOpen   C:\Windows\System32\wow64.dll   FAST IO DISALLOWED   


and i have
Code: Select all
49605   17:49:03,3054441   UniUploader.exe   2004   CreateFile   D:\Spiele\WoW-Tools\UniUploader\UniUploader.exe.config   NAME NOT FOUND   Desired Access: Generic Read, Disposition: Open, Options: Synchronous IO Non-Alert, Non-Directory File, Attributes: N, ShareMode: Read, AllocationSize: n/a
50509   17:49:03,4119328   UniUploader.exe   2004   QueryDirectory   D:\Spiele\WoW-Tools\UniUploader\UniUploader.INI   NO SUCH FILE   Filter: UniUploader.INI


i don't know where to start my search...

wow64.dll allows 32 bit assemblies (such as uniuploader) to run in a 64 bit environment. It has nothing to do with World of Warcraft. I have no idea why the status is "FAST IO DISALLOWED".

The settings are stored in settings.ini.

What seems to be your problem anyway?

If your running vista 64bit, it's a good possiblity it's because of the security settings. I have problems viewing the log file in notepad because of this. Try to run it once using Run as Administrator, set it up, then close out and let it write the settings file. You'll have to do the same every time you want to change something. It's all in the way vista allows the program files folder to be written to.

i can confirm this tomorrow evening when i am back on my pc. if vista is the problem, the feature request will be to store the configuration in user directories ;)

thanks and regards,

The settings should probably be written in the application data folder. Then it should be configurable for non-admin users, and all users (on XP and Vista) can have their own settings.

i did the following:
- executed the program as administrator
- edited settings
- closed uu
- executed the program as normal user
- default settings were loaded, all of my changes gone

so i think it don't have to do with admin rights.

had a look on the debug screen and found that:

[2007.03.28 21:39:02] Initializing Application
[2007.03.28 21:39:02] .NET Framework v2.0.50727
[2007.03.28 21:39:02] ReadSettings: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
[2007.03.28 21:39:03] v2.6.4 Ready.

maybe it has to do with .net framework 3?

no i mean .net framework 3, it's part of vista. i don't have .net framework 2 installed and even if i try to, the setup tells me that .net is part of the os and cannot be installed.

but good news: your test version is running for me. i have attached the debug output.

very strange, as the only thing i did was make it output which point in the source code is reached. the functionality of the code hasn't changed besides it not checking for updates to the program itself.
