Re: Trader's Little Helper

1. ermm, that's also odd!! I get Version ??? - I think I may have to d/l it again! Although I have had no other problems so far.

2. Both. It first happened when I was testing a batch, and then happened again when I tested it on it's own.

3. "Error: Invalid Data Ignore and Continue?"

4. If I continue then it says "There were errors"

It seems to be spotting the invalid data at the end of the file because if I continue, it finishes testing almost immediately.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

there's a prog which predates TLH for Mac called xact which can do some of the same things. Check it out:

If you get 'Version ???' the .exe file of Trader's Little Helper may be corrupt. Another reason for this mystery could be an older version of Windows (95, 98 or ME), but I don't think this is it. Please uninstall Trader's Little Helper. Download the setup file(s) and install again (http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/).

Good news (decoding sequence in Trader's Little Helper is ok).

This seems to be not a "real" error message ... The caption of the message box should be "Error: Invalid data" and in the box there should be a more specific description of the error ("file is truncated or otherwise corrupt" for instance).

That's the summary of the whole testing process. But above there must be a line "filename.flac: tested ok" or "filename.flac: (some kind of error message)". I suppose you haven't got this line have you?

No, there are other reasons for this. This is not related to our problem.


You said earlier this flac file can be decoded without problems. Is the size of the decoded file bigger than the size of the flac file? Did you listen to the decoded file - no unusual skips, no unexpected end?

PS: If there is some way I can get this flac file from you please PM me.

There will be no Mac version of Trader's Little Helper ... maybe a Linux version some day.

Yes, I do have Windows ME.
I'll do the test again when I get home tonight. I can't remember what it said about the FLAC file.
There definitely was no description of what type of error it was other than 'invalid data.'

Re: Trader's Little Helper

What does this mean? The file is a video, but I would assume you can check any md5 with your program.

Trader's Little Helper hasn't reached version 1.0 yet and is still in beta. So there are a lot of error messages which are for debugging purposes only. They will be removed in the final version.

One of those messages is your "Integer overflow" message. It means that a number occured while calculating the md5 sum that is bigger than what can be handled with the data structures used in Trader's Little Helper. This is a serious bug, so really thanks for putting this up.

The problem only occurs when the size of the file is bigger than about 300 MB. If you don't get this error message all has been properly calculated. That nasty bug will be fixed in the next version of Trader's Little Helper which will be released in about two weeks.

I just did this - uninstalled and then installed again. But it still comes up with "Version ??? The file may be corrupt"
I do use Windows ME.

I'll try the file again tomorrow, if I get the chance.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Well I've used this now for several functions and it's great! Good work roann. I especially like the preview of the fixing SBE's which I have started saving in the folder as a log of what was done when I fixed them. Don't know if anyone cares about it but I figured it can't hurt.

One thing... is it possible to add a "clear" button on the "Verify checksum" page? I can't seem to clear it without closing TLH or opening a new one from another show. I've tried highlighting and right clicking, but nothing. It won't let me highlight more than one file at a time anyway.

Also, I agree with Five, it would be nice to have a "move up/down" button for the SBE fixing. If you didn't mention how to do it I'm not sure anyone would know you were able to move them.

Thanks again for the proggy. I'm not ascared of you anymore.

Another suggestion...

How about the ability to double click on an md5 or ffp file and have it verify in TLH?

One more...

How about if in the verifying log window it showed the file name then "verified ok" instead of the line #? would make it easier to ID which file it is.


Now don't you wish I was still suspicious? I'll have more, I can assure you.
