Aha, I finally hit the crash. It was when the profile has empty My Links to begin with. Almost there.

Really? I just happen to finish an import to ~90% of my profiles - and since I had restored my database only two profiles had My Links. And I had Clear existing My Links selected to be sure these profiles wouldn't end up with double entries.

Yeah, it all makes sense to me now, based on the bugs I found. (1) When I clear My Links, I insert a null into the field, which is OK (I can always switch to a blank string if necessary). But then when I come back and look for My Links, I forgot to account for the null string. (2) And I fixed several other things I won't bore you with.

Anyways, try LoadDVD V2.42. I'll wait for your feedback before I announce it.

The checkbox Clear existing My Links cleared all My Links from all profiles.

I might have chosen the wrong csv file yesterday (the one with all profiles), so this might have been my fault. At least I couldn't reproduce this today anymore.

Yes, that's it. Tried this with V2.41 and could reproduce this error.
Tried this with V2.42 and it worked. So this bug is fixed.

- My Links Import has a major performance enhancement - maybe by a factor of 10 - 100

This is true and really great.

Otherwise exports are some kind of slow. Is it necessary to switch to each profile when exporting?

I tell you, it is a developer's dream to get the kind of feedback you are giving. Good catch. Let me tweak that export for you. Should be easy.

Oh wait, I know why. I'm using "Copy Online Links" internally. This works on the selected DVD. But when that command fails, I pull the links from the web page.

Now, if I forget about using the internal command and always use the web page, I don't need to select the DVD ahead of time.

That's super easy to do - so, I should do that, right?

Thanks, but I only tell what I see.
This time I thought, you push links into profiles without selecting them, maybe you can pull links a similar way.

Well, most of my profiles won't support "Copy Online Links" anyway (it's greyed out in the menu) - so it would be useful in my case.

What about My Links, would it be possible here, too?


Edit:

Emport? Must be the opposite of Ixport...
Little typo when export has finished.

Ha ha! Ok, I'll get that one also. Working on it. My son is coming home. Big pre-Thanksgiving dinner tonight, so I might slow down a bit for a couple of days. I found another export bug involving special characters that I want to nail as well.

@StaNDarD, last time I posted, I was working on a couple of pesky bugs. In the meantime, I've had some unexpected personal issues that will take most of my attention for the next week or so - not a lot of time for plugin debugging.

Would you like to play with the current version until I get around to finishing it? I can list 3 specific known bugs - they are annoying but not lethal.

LoadDVD V2.43 Available

- Improved display of progress bar on all LoadDVD My Links menus, and a Cancel button to interrupt long loops
- Improved performance of all loops by moving as much code outside of the loop as possible
- Improved accuracy of Find Missing Online Links entries
- Export Online Links no longer depends on the DVDP Copy Online Links menu. When Ken stabilizes that menu, I can switch back to it for even faster operation (Better still - maybe he will give us a super fast export).

Whew  , what started out as an "easy one," turned into a nightmare because I hit some HTML encoding anomalies that my feeble brain could just not figure out until after recoding a billion times. Mithi will appreciate how much easier it is to work with XML, which has a much more rigorous and well-defined architecture compared to the legacy HTML implementations grandfathered by the browsers.
Thanks for your support.

LoadDVD V2.46 Available

- Resolved several bugs in the parsing of "Filepath" in Notes
- All legacy formats should now be supported properly

Legacy Example:

[filepath disc=1]\\server\mymovies\movie.iso[/filepath]

New formats supported:

<filepath disc=1>\\server\mymovies\movie.iso</filepath>
<filepath disc="1">\\server\mymovies\movie.iso</filepath>
<a disc="1" href=" \\server\mymovies\movie.iso">Click Me In HTML Notes</a>

All formats support the side="A" or side="B" attribute, for example:

<filepath disc="1" side="A">\\server\mymovies\movie.iso</filepath>

Any "Pro" users - if you are having any issues, of course let me know. Otherwise, the Pro version will not be updated until I finish some other unrelated automation enhancements.
Thanks for your support.

There's a problem with LoadDVD 2.50:

I just setup a clean Windows 8.1 on my machine and installed DVD Profiler.
After restoring my database I installed LoadDVD - but DVD Profiler doesn't find / load it...

So I installed two other plugins (BulkEdit & CCV) and both are found / loaded by DVD Profiler.

But LoadDVD is still missing...

There's a directory 'LoadDVD' inside the 'Plugins' directory. It contains the following files:
° AxInterop.WMPLib.dll
° cx777.exe
° CX995VMap.txt
° DacalMap.txt
° DefaultAutomation.xml
° Interop.SpeechLib.dll
° Interop.WMPLib.dll
° LoadDVD.dll
° PlayFromDisk.bat
° PlayFromDisk.wsf
° Rs232.bat
° RunAction.exe
° Settings.settings
° unins000.dat
° unins000.exe
° USBCDDLL.dll
° USBIRT.bat
° VGPXL1BMap.txt

Luckily I found 2.46 si still downloadable from your website (though it is not linked, the file still exists ).

I uninstalled 2.50 and installed 2.46 instead - and LoadDVD is found / load by DVD Profiler.

Now there's one more file in 'Plugins\LoadDVD':
° LoadDVD.tlb

So I guess this file is missing in your 2.50 installer.


PS: I ran into the old .NET 2 vs. .NET 4 issue when installing LoadDVD after BulkEdit and CCV.

Thanks, I just got back from visiting my son and his wife in London.

I received one other report of this. Seems that I screwed up the install process trying to fix the .NET problem. I'll start working on a fix soon: some jet lag to sleep off first!

And thanks for the sleuthing.

LoadDVD V2.50 Refreshed

Due to a mistake in setting compile options, LoadDVD was not installing correctly.

The installation file has been refreshed. There are no functional changes, so the version remains the same as here.

Please note that LoadDVD is now .NET 4.0 based.

I'm sad to tell, but it still doesn't show up in DVD Profiler.

I don't know if it's important, but "LoadDVD.tlb" is again missing.
