Just to update everyone here, Pedro came back to me direct via email very quickly and allowed me to try an early copy of v0.8.5 which he hopes to have out for general release in the next week or so. One of the fixes in that release is related to Windows XP
with SP3, which my Media Centre is running SP3.
Under this new version I did have 1 initial full OS crash and reboot, but have since been unable to replicate that behaviour in testing with a further 250 photo uploads or updates. I still have the weird problem of the properties dialog not behaving properly
for just some of my folder structure, however newer folders in a different areas seem fine (wondering if it's a path depth or something weirder - but as if I leave the folders alone they still sync it's not a high priority fix now I've been able to upload
See below for email update I sent Pedro if you really want more detail:
Thought I’d give you a further update.
Since that first OS crash with v0.8.5 I’ve been unable to replicate a crash (ever since I turned on FlickrSync’s logging of course!) although I do still have the issue that just for a particular
set of folders within
C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX.XXXX\My Documents\My Pictures\Friends\0812 - Egypt 2008\
The right-click Properties option of the second half of sub folders in that directory do not display or update properly and I’m wondering if this is/was contributing to the crash conditions while
I was uploading these photos.
This incorrect behaviour is however contained to just those sub folders and any new folders created within that sub folder. Any new or existing folders outside of that 0812 – Egypt 2008 seem to
I’ve now completed both uploading new, and updating existing uploads of approx 250 photos both within and outside of the ‘problem’ Egypt directory and soo far with no additional crashes.
I’m therefore attaching here the FlickrSync Log (no crash info), some rough email notes I made, and the last 3 windows crash dumps that were caused or happened while FlickSync was uploading stuff.
Many thanks for early sight of v0.8.5 and I’ll get back in touch if and when I have further problems. However if you want further info on the weird folder properties issue just let me know if you
need further screenshots or additional descriptions.
Many thanks for a great app, and for doing all this free, I’ve sent you a donation as thanks for both the program and your support help.
