From your last post, v1.70 seemed to be 64-bit only. Maybe it's the case of v1.75 too? I hope he doesn't drop 32-bit support yet, as many people are still stuck with older computers (I don't think they produce 32 bit computers anymore)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

A new kArmTI update (v1.75), this time only the x86 version (which runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit windows)
Thanks for this interesting update, SpiroH!

Just one info:
Whenever I quit the program I get a Windows error ("Application has crashed")!?
This has never happened before with any of your previous versions.
And BTW, I'm running it at Vista 32bit.

Regards,
Franz

Hi Franz,
Many thanks for you feedback, I really appreciate it. Regarding your issue, i'm running Windows7 (64-bit) and it has not happened to me ever. Anyway, i believe you, and  i suspect it can come from the auto-resolution of the MRU path. I've slowed it down a bit and have added a time-out to the remote call responsible for that operation (as a debug work-around).  Please let me know if the problem persists and/or if you notice any 'WARN' message on the console.
I'll try to fix it, ASAP. In the meantime, please use the attached version. Cheers,

Hi Franz,
I've found a 'null pointer problem' that can cause the application to crash when saving the UsbExplorer state. That occurs when the following key 'UsbHostRootDir' has not been defined yet!
Please try the following (to check if that can be the cause):
   1. Open UsbExplorer and 'Browse for a Dir' to set the root directory to some value (whatever you like).
   2. Then exit the program and see if it still crashes.
I hope it helps. I'll post a fixed version, when i have a little more time. Pretty busy ATM.

(I don't think they produce 32 bit computers anymore)
Hmm, what do you mean with this?
The computers, i.e. the hardware is 64bit since a long time, but of course you can still run 32bit software on it (on 32-bit and 64-bit OS).

Franz


I meant that companies that sell computers now only produce 64-bit machines. Production of 32-bit machines have pretty much ceased. As a result, some software developers no longer feel that it's necessary to continue making sure that their softwares still run properly on 32-bit machines. Some even make their softwares compatible only with the latest Windows OS (Halo 2, for example, was Vista-only, and Tapatalk only runs on Windows 8)

Also some 32-bit softwares cannot run on 64-bit machines due to driver signing issues. It took until 2011 before Casio made FA-124 run on 64-bit systems

Franz:  I'm attaching a fix version (v1.752) for the 'app crash on exit' due to the null pointer. I've decided to set as default HostRootDir the kArmTI's executable directory (actually, a relative path ".").
Afterwards, it's up to the user to change/set the settings. This time I've tested with an empty registry entry to make sure it wouldn't crash. Well, it didn't. I hope 'this' bug has been fixed.
Thanks for your help.

Yes it's working now, many thanks - great service as usual! :)

Just one question:
I started with empty entries for these 2 registry keys, and after exiting the program I've got the following 2 values:
"UsbHostDir"="f:\\NSPIRE~1"
"UsbHostRootDir"="F:\\NspireGUI"

Is there any special reason why UsbHostDir uses an abbreviated path (8 characters as in the old DOS times), whereas UsbRootHostDir uses the full name for the path?

Franz
Well, to be honest i don't know. In my case (windows 7) i get the full path for boths keys  ;) . Maybe it has todo with some MSDOS leftovers in vista. Anyway, it should not matter much, as long as the OS can understand them. I wouldn't worry as long as it works. Also, i don't have vista anymore so i can't really test it.

If we do, then this site will be taken down for piracy, so Google will have to do.

As written countless times, you just have to dump them from your device with PolyDumper, it's very easy (just follow the readme)
