Re: [DQSD-Users] IMdB issue

2010-03-02 Thread George Hitz





 OK Kim,

 I did install the 4.1 beta and of course it works.
 The "notes" even mention "fixing" imdb or words
 to that effect.

 I always stayed away from v4.1 because it talked
 about 64b support but never mentioned continued
 32b support. I'm just naive enough think it takes two
 programs - one 32b, one 64b - which I have
 discovered is not true. I am not a software guru,
 for sure.

 I still have the erroneous result from "check for
 update ..." but that is a "don't care" - just a
 curiosity. 

 Thanks again for your help along the way. I
 find dqsd to be a fantastic program and would
 be "lost" without it as I prove every time I go
 to friends computer.

Right you are -- I double-checked the details, and the imdb fix went
in just after the release of 4.0.0.6.

You could get the 4.1.0.0 beta, which contains a working imdb search.

Hopefully we can find some time to get out a proper 4.1 release, the
beta has been dangling forever.

Curious!

  
  
 Since I uninstalled and reinstalled dqsd.exe wouldn't
 the newer XML file have installed?

  
  
It most definitely should, I'm not sure what could've gone wrong
there... Maybe if you picked up an imdb.xml manually from the list at
some point, and copied it into your install directory, then the
uninstaller might not delete it, since it differs from what the
installer put there. But that's just a theory.

I wonder if you could do the uninstall again, and then go back and
check which files remain in the searches directory. The entire
searches directory should disappear on uninstall, but if it doesn't,
you should be able to delete it manually.

Then re-install, and you would get all the latest searches.

Hope that helps,
- Kim

2010-02-28 Thread George Hitz

Jim,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I followed your instructions because I believe that FF does use some
functionality from IE (could be wrong on that)

It resulted in no change.

I could not find similar functions in FF Options.

I am hopeful someone else has an idea on this.

 I am not familiar with FF but for Windows/IE8 the allow active content

 This will allow script execution on the local computer.

 1) Go to Control PanelInternet OptionsAdvanced.
 2) Scroll down to Security.
 3) Check the box Allow active content to run in files on My Computer.
 4) Click Apply, exit and restart any open IE windows.

 Perhaps the same setting affects FF or you can find the equivalent in FF.

 When I type in the search bar imdb movie name it no longer goes

 the movie name.

 In the past this worked as expected.  No longer.

 As a aside (perhaps), when I click check for update ... , I get a pop up

[DQSD-Users] IMdB issue

2010-02-28 Thread George Hitz

I solved the aside issue.

I have IE7 installed but never use it.
I looked for ways to uninstall IE7 but
it requires first uninstalling XP-SP3 so
I did that.  It took forever but it worked.
So now I have IE6 installed as it backs
off to that version.

Now when I click Check for Update
(DQSD, it works as expected.

No improvement on IMDb however.
It does not take me to the title
without entering title after the
IMDb site opens in FF.  Still a mystery.

Now to reinstall SP3 while watching
Canada-USA hockey ! ! WOW ! !

Re: [DQSD-Users] IMDb Issue

2010-02-28 Thread George Hitz

Well, it's not very elegant but it works.

I solved the problem by creating a new
search function and putting it in Local Aliases.

imdb2|http://www.imdb.com/find?s=ttq=/%s

The search syntax becomes imdb2 movie name

Before I did this one liner and after I uninstalled
IE7 as described before, I reinstalled DQSD 4.0
with the exact same error result.
   
With imdb2 I am a happy camper until I (or
someone) can find the real problem.

As another aside, I used the same Local
Alias technique to help with those five digit
references found in PC World Magazine thusly:

PCW|http://find.pcworld.com/%s

The search syntax becomes pcw n

FWIW,

George

 Don't overlook my experience that had the error without

 to this thread.

 It showed up with AdBlockPlus 0.7.5.2 I installed as an

 Again, FWIW.

Yeah I think this is it;
  
  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=359630
  
  
Following the instructions in the link from my previous email fixes the
issue. FF definitely has a DDE issue because of the hinky way they are
handing their windows. At this point I wouldn't count on this being
fixed soon. 
  
In one of the bug tickets its explained quite well I am betting, one
user stated he thinks what happens is the DDE conversation is started
with the Firefox window thats present at launch, during the launching
process the original thread/window dies and DDE isnt properly
transferred to the new Firefox window or perhaps even, MS was sloppy in
their explorer code, (my theory) and is assuming once the DDE session
is open it always stays open and after their inital 'message' they send
another without checking the status of the DDE connection and whammo,
error gets generated. 
  
Why this gets worse seemingly with the google toolbar present (and
really enhanced with GT and DQSD together) I am not sure. Some have
pointed out errors that are likely related to this ( 
http://groups.google.com/group/FFToolbar-Group-Bugs/browse_thread/thread/072935cb2d9acabe/77cdc339cf169b6f#77cdc339cf169b6f
) to google but I dont know what if any action was taken. 
  
So in the end the bug isnt yours or DQSD's, its related to windows and
FF. Since the bug has been around off and on since as early as 2002 I
dont know if FF Dev team will ever address it

  Hi
Richard,

That could well be... But would the Google toolbar change the DDE

I don't understand why the search toolbar changes the behavior of the
browser at startup.

I'm not intimately familiar with DDE, so the details evade me, but I

think we may be onto something here. Please post back if you find
anything out.

 Actually Kim I may disagree. I had run into similar issue today.
However if
 you manually drag and drop a html file to FF icon or launch from
command
 line it appears to work fine to me. If I could be so bold to
venture a guess

 I would be its the DDE setup for html files. This would explain
why it was
 an IE error window I was getting when FF was the default browser,
windows is
 passing off the "WWW_OpenURL" topic via DDE to any apps registered
for the

 .html files (in my case systernals process explorer showed MS word
getting a
 hit and also free download manager).

 So my guess is its DDE related (used to do a fair bit of DDE stuff
back in

 the day). I guess the way to test it would be to go into the file
 associations and disable DDE for html files, I may try that
tomorrow.

 Just my 2cents.

  Hi guys,
 
  I took the time and changed our ShellExecute calls to use
  ShellExecuteEx, which has better error reporting.

 
  With a clean port from the old to the new, I got the error
after
  installing the Google Toolbar, and the resulting error code
said: File
  not found, indicating that DQSDLaunch.html (the file
generated to
  launch searches) did not exist.
 
  This seemed to be a problem with the protocol handler/file
mapping for
  .html files, as the file was most decidedly there.

 
  So, this looks like a problem with Firefox in general, after
the
  Google Toolbar has been installed -- you can try and run Open
from the
  context menu of any .html file, and you'll get the same error
-- File

  not found.
 
  I'll see if I can figure out a workaround, but we may need to
start
  bugging Google/Mozilla.

[DQSD-Users] Firefox Error revisited

2007-09-24 Thread George Hitz

My apologies to the list for the erroneous input I made
earlier.  My bad.

I have been using Firefox and DQSD for a very long time
without any problems until just recently when I experienced
the Internet Explorer Script Error window - only when
starting Firefox from a DQSD function.

I have never installed the Google toolbar but in light of
one users remedy, I installed it and uninstalled it and of
course the script error window continued to show.

A day or two ago, AdBlock Plus 0.7.5.2 was available
and installed here which in retrospect was when the error
first started.

Today, autoupdate indicated that AdBlock Plus 0.7.5.3
was ready for install which I did and lo and behold, the
script error window has gone away. On the
adblockplus.org website it says 0.7.5.3 fixes an error
message that appears on some installations.

FWIW.
