"Application Error" using 'Find' w/ EE ....

 

Does anyone know what is going on?  I am getting error messages using Ecco w/EE on 'Find'.  It happens on non-sync'd copies of the same file on XP and Win 7 installs but with slightly different wording.  On Win 7 it says "Application Error - Please exit & restart Ecco".  On XP it says "Unable to complete command".  The error does not happen on straight Ecco, only w/ EE.

Specifically, "Find" is set to "Entire File" with "Item Text & column values" selected.   No error with "Current View" or with "Item Text" only.  I ran Slang and Ecco error correction... No joy.  Next I deleted all data from the file so only folders exist and still get the error.  Running EE Memory Usage:

Zone    Count    Alloc      Frag    Mpt
0-rt     557    267748      5958    2408

1-misc   746    670588      5880    18016

6-view   21     6856        0       88
TOTAL    2167   795080      6000    71028



This is just tad scary. After messing with the PIM's of the early 90's, Ecco was love at first sight and we've done alot of work together.

Am I hitting some kind of folder limit? 
 
Thinking about it .... It is possible the messed up file is a great-grandchild of a file originally created 20 years ago. I read something about pointer issues in really old files.  Could that have something to do with it? 

I can email the stripped file. It's a whopping 855kb. Any help is appreciated.


Thanks,

Mark

Ah yes, Friedhelm.  I had forgotten some of those things.  Yes, I do recall now that Ecco probably got dumped as part of a deal between MS and NM that involved scuttling it.  Yes, that was the scuttlebutt at the time.

I used to be fairly active in the old NM forum.  I remember a few attempts at different times and by different people to buy, acquire, or otherwise pry Ecco out of NM's hands as far back as the 90s.  Some of them raised money, some of them took a very long time, but all of them went nowhere.  And then later the failed open source release.  Those were frustrating years.

To tell you the truth, it was Slang who revived my interest in Ecco.  Just before he came along, I was feeling that I had nearly had it.  The prospect of more years with no new development was just getting too depressing after all that time.  If Slang hadn't arrived on the scene just then, I probably wouldn't be here today.  I am so thankful that I stayed around to see his magic show.  It's one of the most impressive things I have ever seen in any aspect of my life.

Re: [ecco_pro] Times displaying incorrectly in Calendar

 

Thank you for all the replies to this query.  I've been away and did find a temporary workaround so have not got back to the problem until now.

The problem exists only if EccoPro is being run with EccoExt (the Compusol version) but not when I go back to the plain vanilla EccoPro. 

r634718, you asked (30/6/15) whether there is a DateTimeFormat setting in my eccoext.ini file -- no, there is not.  Should there be?

JS suggested (1/7/15) deleting and re-creating the eccoext.ini file -- could this this still worthwhile?

perlloaderplease, I've not yet tried your suggestions (22/7/15) -- I don't believe I have any Slang rules set up (I'm not really a power user of EccoExt).

I'm going away again for the next 4 days.  If nobody has any better ideas, I'll try some of the things that have been suggested so far and report back.

Subject: [ecco_pro] Times displaying incorrectly in Calendar
 
 

Using latest EccoPro with EccoExt on Windows 8.1.  A sudden problem has shown up today.

To put a new Appointment in the Calendar, I always click somewhere after the previous appointment, type in the appointment details and adjust the time as needed in the Date Settings dialog box.  No problem.

But today when I start typing the appointment details, an incorrect time appears in the date/time column.  When I go to the Date Settings dialog box to fix it, the correct start and end times are accepted, but when I OK that dialog box, the original incorrect time still appears in the date/time column and in the bar beside it.  The incorrect time does not appear to be related to existing appointment times and is never just one hour as would normally be the case.  When I move to another Day and return, the incorrect appointment item has disappeared.    I've tried Daily and Weekly views, today and future dates and the same thing always happens.  I've also closed and re-opened Ecco but the problem remains.

Any ideas, please?

Re: [ecco_pro] Re: Database Archive Function not working

 

I tested both with EE and without EE. It saves the file with entries marked deleted but leaves the original file as is.

I think I vaguely remember this being discussed.

Do I read your comment correctly that the bug only happens with EE and not native Ecco?  Or does it happen in native Ecco too?

If I recall, it used to work in native Ecco because years ago I used to use that feature.  Then I devised a different way to do archiving and have not used it since.  So AFIK, it used to work in native Ecco.

memory condition too low

 

I have several Ecco files including large files. When I launch the program, numerous alarms have to be dealt with, i.e., leave them alone or snooze them for a future time. 


Sometimes when I finish with that procedure and I click to Close, it reports that it couldn't do anything with them due to low memory condition. This concerns me greatly. 


I have tried to avoid the problem by closing any large applications that are running. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. 


I am concerned that I am losing those alarms. 


I am running the basic Ecco application because the last time I installed the Eccoext update, I got a weird result.


Any thoughts?


Than ks,

Bill

Guide to Ecco Extension?

 

I'd like to echo a note I saw a few days ago, inquiring whether there exists any systematic summary of the changes / new features in Ecco Extension.


I installed Extension while switching to Windows 10.  It runs just fine, but I don't know how to make use of the enhancements it offers, and on one occasion it delivered a rather unpleasant surprise.

 

I was working in an Ecco file, minding my own business, when suddenly the font size changed, without my having consciously done anything to make it do so.  When I went to adjust this with the Character command, in the dialog box I saw two unfamiliar settings:  Zoom and Outline, which did not seem to be adjustable by me. As I continued to fiddle with it, the Zoom setting changed, again without my having done anything to cause that, as far as I could tell.


I would like to avoid having things go out of control again, and learn to use the enhancements.  As a side note, I don't suppose these include what I would regard as an absolute killer enhancement: the capability to create macro commands.


Thanks,


Frank Nettleton

Linux is a kernel used by Linux distributions, which are complete computer Operating Systems.  Although hundreds exist there are only a few major distros upon which almost all the rest are based:

Debian (which Ubuntu is based on), Fedora / RedHat, openSUSE, Slackware, Arch and Gentoo. I have installed and used all of them and all of them support Wine (although I have found it somewhat more difficult in Slackware - but it can be done).  However, I no longer use Ubuntu or Ubuntu derivatives and some differences exist between Ubuntu and Debian. Ubuntu and Debian are the base for over half of the distros listed by distrowatch.com. Another major distribution is Mandrake/Manriva/Mageia which I have run as a live system but not installed, so I know little about it.

Also, I haven't used Ecco with cel phones or tablets so I can't be of much help in that respect. (My cel phone is a Nokia Asha 210 which is no longer sold here I believe, and I use it for text messages and when I am not at home).

What I can certainly do is orient people regarding where they can find the information they need to install and use Ecco on GNU/Linux distributions. It's not hard, anyway - and Crossover is very rarely needed, any more.

As I mentioned:  The commitment is there to support older Windoze applications as an altruistic service.  This isn't Micr$oft and Linus Thorvald isn't Bill Gates (who may be the devil in disguise). :-

Coincidentally, today's edition of distrowatch published a review (as it does every Monday) of a GNU/Linux distro and today's review was of Zorin, which calls itself a windows replacement.

http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20150824#zorin

This may be of interest for those contemplating making the switch.

It is NOT what I use so I'm not sure how much help I can be but anyone trying it out (which does not require installing it) can register for the zorin forum and Linux forums are usually quite helpful. (They are also an important element to consider when choosing a distro).

Doug ...

To start EE with EccoPro just execute "eccoext.exe" in the Ecco program folder.

As I recall, that's what I did, after starting Ecco normally (which in my case, is via the Xfce4-panel Whisker menu in which I have Ecco listed as a "Favorite, along with a few of the other applications I use daily).

If I understand you correctly, I have to open EE which then opens Ecco.  However, the Xfce4-panel Whisker menu does not provide me with an EE icon to make as a favorite.  This means I must use my file navigator to open EE, which is somewhat less convenient but no big deal.

In Windows you will see a small EccoPro icon in your lower toolbar at he right. Just right-click that icon and you will see all the additional EccoPro options. How does it appear on your screen under Wine?

First of all, unlike M$ Windows, Linux distros allow the use of a multitude of Desktop Environments.  In other words, the range of choices is far greater.  In my case however, I have settled on either Openbox (which is NOT a full DE) to which I add the Xfce4-panel and several of the widgets that can be linked to it.  In other cases (when Openbox is not an option that is offered), I install the full Xfce environment.

The Ecco icon DOES in fact appear in the notifications section of my lower Xfce4-panel here in 64 bit Sparky Openbox, and by right clicking on it I get a menu with a dozen options and by left clicking on it, Ecco either opens and closes or disappears and appears.

Each of the dozen menu items shows a number of additions choices so it appears to me that EE is fully functional in Debian under Wine.

For instance, I can make the Shooter (which I do not use) appear and disappear, without going into the
tools menu.

I have to do some other things at the moment, but could follow up on this later.
