NewsLeecher v5.0 Beta 16, Windows 8 Pro Not remembering settings on exit

Postby Moby19 » Thu Nov 01, 2012 3:32 pm

NewsLeecher v5.0 Beta 16 (RC1)
Windows 8 Pro
Clean Install after Windows Installation

After installing NewsLeecher v5.0 Beta 16 today i have found it does not save any of my settings on exit. All Server details and Interface Settings are reset on re-starting program. Upgraded from Version 4.0 Final as it didnt work with Windows 8.
Have unistalled and re-installed but same problem, cannot find a solution on forums.

Thanks for time :wink:

I too tried to use the beta 15 version, but although i see it running in the Task Manager it does not show on desktop. Have tried multiple re-installs and still not working for me :( . Running on Windows 7 x64 i had no problems running version 4.0 final.
Im guessing its just me as i cant believe im the only one who upgraded to Windows 8 :o , as i cant see anyone else with this problem. Dont really want to find an alternative program to use as i just renewed Newsleecher :?
Any Help or Ideas would be appreciated :D

You are not alone.

Installed Windows 8 and I too suffer from the losing of servers when Newsleecher is closed.

Hopefully it will be fixed sharpish as having to make do with SABNZB+

That seems to have solved the problem for me Thanks Spiril :D.

Have installed, entered details, exited newsleecher, started newsleecher and setting are still there :)

Will restart PC and try to download something and see how it goes, will report back asap.

Thanks for the fix and quick reply 8)

** Update ** After Downloading a few items and opening and closing the program a few times i now have a working Newsleecher i have come to love over the years :D

also solved the problem for me (tried to add servers, closed newsleecher with stuffs stil in the queue, etc...).

thanks Spiril ;)

btw, there's another bug which is there for some releases now : window "bug has occured" appears if I close NewsLeecher with some stuff still to download (being on the "Queue" tab, doesn't seems to affect other tabs) and if there are some groups to cleanup. I know, I didn't reported before, but this is not really annoying as I just have to move the bug window and click OK to confirm cleanup of groups. after the cleanup, NewsLeecher closes fine.

Beta 6 does not remember added destination match entry.
Also does not continue verifying and extracting with more then one files.
It continues only after closing NL and restart.
I use Windows 8 also.

Hi,

I'm facing the same problem with beta 16.

Does somebody still have the fix ? (http://www.newsleecher.com/nluft1.exe) because the link is dead.

Thanks

I believe the fix was rolled into a later beta. Please download beta 18 from the main download page.
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.
