An interesting response

Recommended Posts

After six days not a single response. :blink:

 

Can only assume it’s a masterpiece and well polished B)

Then again it really is bad and should be assigned to the bin. :lol:

 

I think it hovers between the two. :)

Being an open beta everyone has an opportunity to bash it into shape. B)

 

Feel free to knock it, preferably provide constructive ideas to move it forward. :)

 

All the best

On the other hand, it seems that the base is just fine.

It's the UniTray 2 that's the actual "beta" material.

I've had a chance (finally) to install and test it.

My system is Win7-64, so it doesn't respond like XP.

I feel that we need to look at this as our primary focus

for new development. That said, here's what I found:

Unitray 2 isn't nearly ready for use.

 

While I believe it's an interesting, and perhaps correct,

direction for development, my biggest problem was that

the icons didn't indicate the status of the servers, and

the menu didn't change to allow the servers to be

stopped. I haven't yet had a chance to check if this is

only because I'm on Win7. I also have a few VMs that

I will load this on to test in the next week.

This seems to be resolved now; as usual, it's probably

because I finally rebooted. :) I guess I'll go through

the items one-by-one and verify their operation.

 

So, Ric, don't think your efforts are in vain. I applaud

your work, and hope you are blessed with abundant

patience. :blink:

 

Most people steer clear of betas because they just want

what's working right now. Series 5-Nano is just fine for

them. That leaves a very small group that would even

want to play with a beta, so I wouldn't expect a quick

response.

Hi Bob

You had the old heart racing there for a moment.

I assume Icons are now indicting correct state and servers can be started and stopped.

Apart from the new menu you will find components have moved over to VC9 binaries targeting Win7-64 issues.

 

Note: New menu and servers work perfectly on XP-Home.

Carbo really does require a thorough workout on other Windows OS’s

 

“hope you are blessed with abundant patience”

Never have the time to think about it, currently working on 5.6.8 and 5.7.0

Carbo is stable on XP-Home hence working on a MongoDB plugin (beta to be published this weekend) started work on a production version.

 

“That leaves a very small group that would even want to play with a beta”

I fully understand, shame that its degrees of confidence. :)

 

Best tip I have for novices performing a Uniform Server beta, do not install as a service always run as a standard program. If you break it, turn your PC off and delete the UniServer folder. Beta will have been removed. :blink:

 

Anyway I am off to put finishing touches to that beta MongoDB plugin (blisteringly fast bit of kit) just need to write a read-me and release notes and produce an md5 check sum and!!. :lol:

 

My aim this weekend is to start work on a production version the above beta is a click and go solution with no security. That was the intension allowing users to explore the potential of MongoDB with no restrictions.

 

All the best

I have good news and bad news....

 

Haven't had any problems with XP, but under Win 7, the status-check doesn't work at all (and therefore the service indications and uninstalls all fail). If I get a chance later, I'll attempt to debug why. I'm not currently set up to do that, so it may be a while in coming.

 

There's a good chance that the problem stems from UAC (which is turned on), but I don't get any prompts. Just conjecture.
