George, I can open the archive you sent me but most of the files were missing. WinRAR reports "unexpected end of archive.
The archive on the server includes all the files. That archive was compiled with WinRAR (as a zip). If the problem were with WinRAR, I'd expect it would be more widely publicized.
This is the same technique I've been using since Day1 with both AIFP and FenceBuilder Pro - using standard NET/Framwork web interface commands. That's 10s of thousands of downloads. And only two people affected. That said, however, it seems a consistent problem with those two people.
I wonder if it's something in your firewall/internet security that's doing this. Would you mind reverting to an earlier version of AIFP and disabling your firewall long enough to let the update auto-detect do its thing, please?
I just moved them to a separate thread with a more informative title http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22203. But, of course, moving after I last posted, you'd have no way of knowing. (A senior moment.)For some reason half of my posts have gone AWOL
Not sure what you are telling me here.I've tried it from 126.96.36.199 on my W7 machine and it worked fine. Both machines use the same router and there is no firewall active.
From where did you download it Bert?
The main archive file contain 2.1.06. Perhaps the download was not successful.
ggeccles, I thought I'd at least try to address your issues in the upcoming release:As for the remainder of the issues you identified, I'll get to those ASAP.
As I suggested in the post above, I think you'll find the whole area of local time/over-midnight flights vastly improved.I suppose the main problem is that when displaying or working with flights which commence on a different day to the UTC day, the flight jumps to the next day when displayed in Local Time. This function worked flawlessly in V1.6 so something has been modified in this new version which has changed the way it works.
FixedI am unable to get the aircraft details to show when selecting 'Modify Selected Aircraft' from the Aircraft List in the FP editor.
Hadn't appreciated this side-effect. 1.6 operation restored.the combining of the txt file and bgl file options has made the process of retrieving files longer when the two different records are held in separate areas. The last folder location is retained so if you retrieve a bgl after retrieving a txt file you have to navigate through the folder hierarchy to go from one folder to another to retrieve the relevant file. The use of two separate selection options in V1.6 made the process of retrieving the different file types much quicker.
I've already chnaged the format of the flight plan tooltip to a more useful tabular format. I hadn't appreciated the tooltips were active even when deselected. Fixedhaving the full flight plan details appear when passing the mouse over the Flight Plan List is most annoying when you have quite a lot of large flight plans in the list. Turning off Tooltips does reduce this problem but they still appear if the mouse pointer stays in one place too long and are then difficult to clear so you can work on the flightplan.
This is what is supposed to happen. Please give me a sequence of events where it doesn't.There have been a few occasions where I have accidentally closed AI Flight Planner without saving my work. I know this is careless of me but can be quite frustrating when you spend an hour or so updating flightplans only to see your work disappear with a wayward mouse click. Would it be possible for a warning whenever you attempt to shut down the program with any unsaved changes?
