Re: Preannouncement: Photo Supreme V3

I've switched off auto-update because of the following scenario (I may be doing this wrong): User receives the auto-update prompt, installs the update, performs the database upgrade when prompted, and is happy. Next user comes along and can't even log into PSU because the software on his machine doe...

Re: Preannouncement: Photo Supreme V3

Yes it's possible to do with Group Policy IF you are running Windows Pro machines in an AD domain. But that wouldn't necessarily be the case at all sites. The sort of thing I have seen with other products is where the client checks in a network location e.g. the server for an updated installer and o...

Re: Preannouncement: Photo Supreme V3

I've never put this in Mantis, but currently the SQL version is awkward to administer because each workstation needs to be updated manually otherwise users on old versions get 'database updated' issues. Has any thought been given to this in Ver 3 ?

Re: Error browsing through a number of photos with SQLServer

Thanks Hert.

FYI all panels are closed. Yes I wonder too about network integrity. It's a wired network but I'll do some digging.

Cheers,
Steve.

Re: Some issues with first release of 2.0

Hi Hert,

Just tried with 2.2.1.1038 and I get the same problem.

Re: Some issues with first release of 2.0

I'd better take something back. After a bit more use I was able to get the same error on a 64-bit machine. In this case it was followed by "TSQLServerConnection : Error 0"

I'll investigate further - might be a network issue. But any thoughts would be welcome.

Re: Some issues with first release of 2.0

Hi, just re-visiting this old post. I am now running 2.1.0.1027 at this site, and the problem with Access Violation (0) is still happening. I'm even surer now that its only happening on the 32 bit machines (Vista SP2). I haven't seen this error on the Win 7 64-bit machines or on the 2008R2 RD server...

Re: Criticism

+1 Is there really much that "the previous product" could do that PSU doesn't? As of Version 2 I'd suggest "not much". Yet PSU has managed to keep an attractive, simple, mostly intuitive interface and very good performance. Even an old wishlist item of mine regarding 'cumulative redating' has just s...

Re: PSu updates info

Yes, the new What's New page is great. Just one extra thing I'd find useful is the release of each version.

{edit] How about I make some sense here ? What I meant was "the release date of each version"! Sometimes it's handy to be able to track back and see when certain features appeared.

Re: What are Portfolios and Collections?

Something that would be very helpful to me is a list of the behavioural differences between collections and category labels. I know they are intended for different uses, but they have many similarities. The only difference I know about is that collections support manual sort order and categories don...

Re: Some issues with first release of 2.0

I dont think it's related to particular images. It seems quite random. This morning I installed it on a few more PCs and a couple of Macs. I get the error randomly on the Macs and the 32-bit PCs but I haven't seen it yet on the 64-bit PCs, while wandering through the same set of images. One thing I ...

Error browsing through a number of photos with SQLServer

Hi, I grabbed the SQL version today 2.0.0.1016 and set it up on a few PCs. Some things i've found so far: - On the 32-bit version, after browsing through a number of photos (say about 20-30) I start to get 'Access Violation (0)' every time I move to a new photo. It seems to happen only on the 32-bit...

SQL version - storage location for Thumbs and Previews

I think I recall seeing in IDI an option to choose whether to store thumbs/previews in the database or as local user files. I don't see this option in PSU and it probably doesn't matter in the single user version. However there are reasons why this could be useful in the SQL version: - Users may hav...
