Clicking "Save and Execute" returns no progress bars and no updates

Post by Tigersoul » Sat Sep 26, 2020 3:59 pm

So I'm pulling my hair out here.

I have used EPG successfully in the past, but my HTPC was down for a while. Upon getting it reconnected, the guide was empty. Downloaded the newest version of EPG and tried to update the guide.

It has my lineups. I've tried adding and removing them. I've even tried the install process from scratch. I've watched the install guide and followed each step as shown. Everytime I click "Save and Execute", it does nothing but close the window. No progress bars showing the guide information is being moved over, nothing. Could really use some help here.

Is there anything in the trace.log file? You can view it with the [View Log] button in either GUI or right-click the tray icon and select 'View Log'.

It seems someone else had this issue as well from what I saw in the other thread.

My Windows Media Center does not have the little "EPG" logo as seen in your installation video, if that offers a hint as to what's going on.

When you click the [Save & Execute] button, does it give any other prompts?

"There have been changes made to your configuration. Do you wish to save changes before exiting?"

Now HERE is the interesting part. I've been clicking on "Yes" all these times and it just closes. I just tried clicking "No" on a whim and NOW I'm getting the progress bars!

Yes, just fixed that in v1.4.10.10 a few minutes ago and available for download. This is starting to make a little sense but I'll look at the code to confirm. It may be due to the error I just fixed, it would "cancel" the execution.

Okay, a little convoluted but it appears that with 1.4.10.0 (and 1.4.0.0), the [Save & Execute] button will work as normal but due to not saving the version number in the cfg file, when the form is closing it will give that prompt to save the configuration. Saying 'Yes' would save the configuration file again but would change the execute flag to false and it wouldn't run.
