NL 7 beta 13 doesnt work at all

Post by renegad3 »

Upon installing beta 13 over beta 12, the app crashes instantly.

I get: Runtime error 216 at 00409176

Using Windows 7 enterprise, SP1

I cannot find beta 12 to revert to, is it possible to download older versions still?

It kinda works for me, but with one major issue: it constantly crashes with a bug labeled SPINLOCK_1231
NL keeps on functioning after that, it's just really annoying to constantly having to click the error message away

No other problems than this one though. W10 x64

Could be many things but we can start looking into the config files. They may be corrupted..
You can hold down F12 when starting the NewsLeecher and it will ask if you wish to load your configuration files. Start with not loading the General Settings File by answering No and it should launch NewsLeecher with the default settings. Immediately quit NewsLeecher to save the default settings to disk. Then launch NewsLeecher again and it should start up with default settings and hopefully no error messages. If you get more errors, try the same procedure for the other setting files.

If this doesn't work:
1. shut down NewsLeecher and go to %appdata%
(cannot find appdata ? - see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9WcmyKqT0Y )
2. rename the Newsleecher folder to NewsleecherOLD
3. Restart NewsLeecher. This should start NewsLeecher up a a clean installation.
4. If you need your old settings and files - try to copy files/folders from within the NewsleecherOLD folder to the current NewsLeecher folder in Appdata - one at a time to find the ones giving the issue..
