Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.00.0054, 03-may-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.00.0054 - 03.05.05 17:26
    ! "Multiple Location Search (via selection in List View)" did not 
      work anymore. Fixed.
    * Now when you do a "Multiple Location Search (via selection in List 
      View)" the selected folders are automatically written into the 
      Location field (separated by " | "). That way they will now be 
      remembered by finding tabs.
    * For internal reasons, the Path column will now always show the full 
      absolute path when you do a "Multiple Location Search", even if 
      all searched locations are direct subfolders of the current tree 
      location.

    ! You could not delete/copy/move a huge number (ca. > 1000) of files 
      at once: sometimes you got an error message, sometimes even a crash. Fixed.

No Peter, please read carefully: run TV3, delete TrackerV3.ini, close TV3. Viola: a fresh clean INI is created!
Ups, yes, I see it now. Works fine. The ini file is now 10% smaller. Thanx!

We are talking about changes in the BETA-version here, for me that means work in progress: there's really no need to fatten the app by adding compatibility code between various BETA-builds.

I know I can delete the ini file. But then I would have to set up all again.

And I know why you have changed the tabs section. But I don't think that renaming a section is a good idea. Why don't you handle this problem like you have changed the "NewTemplates" or "ListDateFormats"? I think a version entry is the better solution.

I don't want to attack the way you are doing things. These are just my thoughts and ideas ;-)

Easy way to create a clean INI: run TV3, delete TrackerV3.ini, close TV3. Viola: fresh clean INI! :D

It's explained in the paragraph you quoted: because "|" is part of the data itself if you use multiple search locations (which are separated by "|").

    ! Inconsistency bug concerning search location of Finding Tabs. 
      Fixed: now the search location of Finding Tabs is read from INI data 
      instead from the tab's Find Template.
    * NOTE: Had to change the tab's data separator used to store 
      sequential data in the INI. It was "|" which was a stupid choice 
      from the beginning because "|" can be part of the data itself (if 
      you use multiple search locations, which are separated by "|"). Now 
      it is ">". As a consequence, unfortunately, all your tab data will 
      be lost. The tabs section in the INI now is [Tabs2].    
Does this mean that the [Tabs] section is now waste? Can it be deleted? Are there any other waste entries or sections? I want to have a clean ini. But I don't want to delete it and set up all new.

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.00.0052, 30-apr-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.00.0052 - 30.04.05 10:03
    + Added preview of *.url files (internet shortcuts). Now, the 
      targets of such files are directly opened within the preview tab. 
      Makes TrackerV3 a nice bookmark manager (go to your Favorites 
      folder).
    + Updated Help file, topic "Browsing Tabs".
    ! If closing many tabs at once by holding down Ctrl+W you could 
      crash the app. Fixed.
    ! When creating a new tab (Ctrl+T) the current tab did forget its 
      recent settings. Fixed.
v4.00.0050 - 22.04.05 17:04
    ! Shortcut "Ctrl+Left Arrow" (jump to the original location of the 
      currently focused file in the find results) did not work correctly 
      since some months: it did jump to the right folder, but did not 
      focus the file. Fixed.

    ! List view turned blank after file was dragged into certain 
      other applications (e.g. Firefox). Fixed.
    * If a tab pointing to an unavailable location is selected, the tree 
      view will lose its selection (but keep the focus rect).

Edit:
After deleting all 'dead' shortcuts from my network places,
tracker eventually connected to: \\Www.msnusers.com :lol:
Which I assume was cached somewhere previously..

However, this is with v360 which doesn't generate any
of the errors mentioned above.
