Besides our releases, Torsten packages nightly builds of RSS Bandit for folks who want to try out bleeding edge features or test recent bug fixes without having to set up a CVS client. There is currently a bug pointed out by James Clarke that we think is fixed but would like interested users to test

I'm hitting a problem once every day or so when the refresh thread seems to be exiting - The message refreshing Feeds never goes away and the green download icons for the set remain green forever. No feed errors are generated. Only way out is to quit.

If you've encountered this problem on recent versions of RSS Bandit, try out the RSS Bandit build from February 9th 2004 and see if that fixes the problem. Once we figure out the root of the problem and fix it there'll be a refresh of the installer with the updated bits.

Dare: FWIW, I've tried installing the last two released of RSSBandit, as well as the Feb. 9th build... none of them will run on my XP/SP1 machine. Even when I drill down and try to run the exe directly, I get a brief hourglass flicker and then nothing.

Do they install or can you not even get them to install? If they install can you look in the C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\RssBandit folder and see if there is an error log?

I'm running the nightly build. Will report back.

Stack overflow exceptions being thrown. Haven't yet been able to come up with a repro yet

Dare: Sorry to take so long getting back to you.

Yes, it installs just fine. (Seemingly.) But no, these is no RssBandit directory anywhere in Documents and Settings. I'll try creating one manually and see what happens.


Nope, no good. Any ideas?
