Re: GreatNews 1.0.396-Guti

OK, first bug report, and a feature request: Bug: You need to include a "default" newsfeed.db in the folder with the program. Even if you're using a custom one in a different folder, with a custom GreatNews shortcut pointing to it, it still won't run without one in the install folder. No i...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.396-Guti

THANK YOU!!!!! I was afraid I was the only person still interested in GreatNews. Did the issue get fixed where it always says "Update failed" when you hover over a feed? That's nothing major, of course, but it's a little annoying. [edit] And I was the first downloader! Woo-hoo! (Yes, I tak...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

I downloaded it, but it says it can't open it as an archive... Makes me wonder if it wasn't compressed improperly.

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

Sorry I've been so quiet (work has me completely swamped). Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Magically teach me programming and how to update Greatnews to the latest versions of VS? Or even better, rewrite it to take advantage of newer technologies? :lol: In reality, I'd love to see...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

Well, crud monkies.

Do you think it would build under GCC? If so, and if you think you'd be able to talk me through finding those bugs, I'd be willing to install that and take a shot a fixing those bugs at least.

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

I'm really hoping we aren't annoying people with our discussion here... Anyway, a couple of bugs I've noticed. One, for some reason, when I hover over a feed, it ALWAYS tells me "Update failed", even when it's just finished updating and downloaded new stories. Not critical, but annoying. T...

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

Definitely interested, what else do I need to get it running? The most recent working version I have is 386, do I just drop these files in that folder and run them?

[edit] Nevermind, I did that and it worked perfectly. Thank you![/edit]

Re: GreatNews 1.0.390-ktm

I seem to be doing something horribly wrong, and it's intensely frustrating. I'd LOVE to update my GreatNews (I currently use 386), but no matter what browser I use to download the attachments, I always get errors. If I download a .zip attachment, I get the error "An attempt was made to move th...

OK, I tried the method Anjo posted, I have GreatNews running right now, but for some reason, when I open it it gives me an error saying "Failed to change proxy settings to defaults. Reason:[0: Success]". Then when I click OK, GreatNews runs but fails to update feeds. [Edit: Found the reaso...

Wondering the same thing here, working on converting to PCLinuxOS, haven't tried running GreatNews yet myself, but was searching to see if it works on Linux... I'll try installing and working with it and WINE later today, just wondering if anyone has any tips I should know. Thanks!
