I am encoutering an error that it cannot find feedlist.xml.

Is this during the install process or after you launched it? Also were you installing this over a previous version or was it a brand new install?

Fabulous. Great progress. A few items on my wishlist.

I would like to see Open in Default Browser on the feed and item context menus.

I would like to be able to open an item in a tab by double-clicking it.

I would like clicking a feed in the treeview to always select the Feed Details tab and show the feed's url in the combobox. As it is, this only happens if the treeview selecting is *changing*.

Thank you.

Sweet, can't wait to get it going. A couple of wishlist items, though: On the right-click of a feed, add "copy feed URL to clipboard." That would make it easier to compose things like I do.

Hmm, just upgraded and can't run:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in RSSBandit.exe

Additional information: File or assembly name Genghis, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

WTF Genghis is?

Can't get it working. Downloaded Genghis and SandBar from CVS, still

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileLoadException' occurred in RSSBandit.exe

Additional information: The located assembly's manifest definition with name 'SandBar' does not match the assembly reference.

Oops. My fault. I messed up and somehow.
With clean install it works.
Sunday, February 1, 2004 1:33:33 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
And it works great! Much better than! Well done.
Sunday, February 1, 2004 4:16:14 PM (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00)
I created an empty folder named RssBandit under Application Data and install worked.

By the way, what is the empty docked control panel on the right used for?
