Skins not appearing.. FIXED. For some reason on some PCs the windows API wouldn't report subdirectories as directories. I Got this last night on my other PC.

The build number is 1.0.0.1. I'm in the middle of trying to fix a Hyperthreading problem. :slant: Random bug! So if any one gets random bug "Virutal error" then its hyperthreading problem. Sorry, trying real hard to get this problem solved. Only bugs if you use skins that update the display often. Clock, ScrollingNews, ITunes

Just redownload todays package. I've updated the package for skins not appearing.

Or you can download the engine only.

shmengie: you need to select a skin. Herd's contextmenu extension doesn't support skins yet (mainly because something goes boo in avedesk when doing that).

So you actually need to go to the 'add desklet' dialog :) - someone might make a 'widget dock' for avescripter.

Sorry, bit thats because weather.com returns NA. Type this (http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/VEXX...cc=*&unit=f) in your browser, you'll see what I mean. Weather.com sometimes returns NA.

Under CC you'll notice there is lots of NA NA.

I've noticed that they do this sometimes, but the next day it will appear ok

Rissol, sorry to tell you this, but Avescripter requires 1.3 AveDesk. It will not work with 1.2 since it uses all the new features of 1.3. There was many internal commands (Events, layerevents, flipping of side, and more..) that have been added in 1.3 Avedesk that allows AveScripter to run. Scripter will never work with 1.2.

I found a mistake in the itunes desklet.

was this:

function IsITunesOn()

On error resume Next

dim Handle

Handle = this.UI.FindWindow("ITunes","ITunes")

if ( Handle > 0) then

IsITunesOn = true //mistake

else

IsITunesOn = false//mistake

end if

end function

heres the correction:

function IsITunesOn()

On error resume Next

dim Handle

Handle = this.UI.FindWindow("ITunes","ITunes")

if ( Handle > 0) then

IsITunesOn = false

else

IsITunesOn = true

end if

end function

no biggie ;)

Actually that's not true.... if a Handle is returned and it is > 0 then ITunes is on. The problem I found is this:

Handle = this.UI.FindWindow("ITunes","ITunes") <<<<<

On some systems the caption isn't ITunes. So the corrections is

Handle = this.UI.FindWindow("ITunes","") <<<<<

Which is already done and will be released end of this week

This is probably the problem you having. Let me know if this is fixs your problem please. Unless there is another problem.

Bug description: Update glitch when playing sounds

Items involved:Clock sample

Windows Version: XP SP2

DirectX version: 9.0c

System specs: 2*1GHz PIII, 512 MB RAM

Graphics card & drivers version: Irrelevant to the issue

Desklets running: AveScripter

Steps to reproduce: Drag the clock sample around - note how it stops moving as long as the tick sound lasts and how the preview flickers in the control panel.

Special notes: Probably a non-issue on faster machinery. Hint: Do the sound playback asynchronously - should be just an option to the call.

-Bug confirmed (Delays).

I know exactly what the problem is... This is been haunting me for awhile. It's not the tick sound, because it does play async. (option 3 will play sync you'll see a bigger pause there) But I know exactly where the problem is. If you comment the sleep out.. you will not get the pause. But the problem isn't just the sleep, its something else internally timing which is on my list of changes to do. And this problem will be solved once I drop that part of the code.
