I'm a Mac user and this is great.

Can't believe that you're giving this away:)

maximum gram entry on 04/28/2013 16:54:38 MDT Print View

I tried to enter the weight of my tent packed which is 1566 grams, but the max is 999.990 grams.

Is this bug or is it the way that it's been set up.

Thanks for checking out the program, Donnie. This was my fault, and I uploaded a newer version this morning that fixes the problem with metric weights and distances. If you find any other problems, or have any suggestions, please let me know. You can email me directly, exciton at vfemail dot net. Cheers.

XP? on 04/28/2013 17:34:41 MDT Print View

Will this work in win XP? I tried it but get an error saying that WS2_32.dll is not a valid windows image.
Thanks.

Unfortunately, not as of yet, sorry. I don't currently have access to an XP machine to compile it, but I'm working on it. I know a lot of people like XP, so I'm trying to track one down now. As soon as I get an XP version up I'll let you know.

Thanks a lot, but it's more fun than work for me. I just dug out an old laptop and it has a functioning version of XP! I'll let you know when I get a version uploaded.

C.C. thanks for updating.

I have already entered a lot of information into the previous version. Dumb question, but how do I export it so that I can import it into the new version?

Re: Re: Re: maximum gram entry on 04/29/2013 17:13:37 MDT Print View

Good question. All of your info should be saved as a .db file in the folder that the program resides in, and should be named after the main gear list that you saved. The settings should be saved in a file called qr.ini. As long as those two files don't get deleted you don't have to do anything, just replace the program with the new one and you should be good to go. If you want to be safe you can make copies of the .db and .ini files before updating. Let me know if something goes awry.

Watched the video and it looks great! I've tried downloading it twice with no success.

That's strange, which version are you trying to download?

My Mac is up to date and I tried to download the Mac option from what you have listed on YT. I've tried a few times but I keep getting an error message "something about the image?"

I strongly suspect it's operator error but I'm not figuring it out.

Works and I noticed that you added a way to track the cost of each item.

Sweet!

The xp version appears to run ok. Been too busy to check it out much. It also works well on my win 7 machine at work. Thanks a lot!
