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.

 George

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.

Hi George,

On my Windows Vista with DQSD 4.1.0.0, typing

  imdb harry potter and the sorcerer's stone

in my DQSD bar takes me straight to this page:
http://www.imdb.com/find?s=allq=harry+potter+and+the+sorcerer's+stone

Could you check the modification date of your imdb.xml in \Program
Files\Quick Search Deskbar\searches, and see if it's around July,
2008? There was a fix around that time, and I want to make sure you
have it.

Thanks,
- Kim

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

George,



I am not familiar with FF but for Windows/IE8 the allow active content
error is resolved with the following steps:


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.

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.

[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 ! !

George

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
