Based on some feedback from yesterday, the RSS Bandit installer has been refreshed and the following fixes made.

  • FEATURE: RSS Bandit now comes with a documentation helpfile so one doesn't need to go online to access the user documentation.
  • FIXED: During synchronization a feedlist may become corrupted and fail to load with the following error 'Keyref fails to refer some key'.
  • FIXED: When launched on a Brazilian Porteguese configured computer some text in dialog boxes is in English.
  • FIXED: If installing over an old version of RSS Bandit, existing search folders are replaced with the 'Unread Items' search folder.

If you downloaded it yesterday you should still get the latest installer because a few of the bugs fixed may affect you.

Any chance of adding the feature intraVnews and others have for optionally downloading the full web page? I know you are against this feature, but perhaps you can figure out the best way to develop to influence other RSS tools.

I find the full-page-download to be such a time saver that I gave up on using the latest RSS Bandit build after only an hour of usage, returning to intraVnews.

What are the chances of getting the remote access feature to save the zip file locally so that I can email the file to myself for use at home. Behind a restrictive firewall is a pain. I've tried saving it to another PC via UNC but this didn't work. Rec'd error that the path can not be found.

The file share option should also be able to accept a local directory such as "C:\temp".

I was one of those who got the "Keyref" error. From what I understood, the categories were not saved in the feedlist.xml. If you get this error even after updating, chances are your feedlist.xml is already stripped from the categories. In that case, the most primitive thing to do is to add them back manually: you can infer your existing categories from the remaining data in the list.
