Release EDEngineer - an overlay to track your blueprint progress in realtime

After the latest update the app doesn't show anymore. No matter if triggered by the try bar icon or by CTRL+F10. What could be wrong? Or should I just try a clean install (don't want to manually adjust all initial entries again, hope that's avoidable).

This app is awesome - if it works! ;)
So you do see the application in the tasktray? Are you using a multiscreen setup, and/or did you change your screens setup (like plugging/unplugging a screen)?

I don't see what could be wrong. In anycase, if you uninstall and reinstall, your changes won't be lost unless you manually delete the content of the folder C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\EDEngineer

Yes I'm using a multiscreen setup and yes to the tasktray. Last night it still worked. The app is running (known by taskmanager) but not visible on either screen. When running I can even see a previewed version of EDDiscovery from ALT-TAB but nothing more on any of my 2 screens.

Meanwhile I reinstalled but to no avail.

Ps: Incidentally I've started with multiscreen just 2 days ago and so I'm still somewhat noobish to that stuff. Still tweaking and changing here and there.
Is there a certain file responsable for hardware checks that probably could have been screwed due to some dilettantish actions on my side? Otherwise I'm afraid I have to delete the complete local folder (C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\EDEngineer) and going to the whole procedure of manually adjusting everything again.

Backup your manualChanges.json file in that folder, it's what stores the changes you made manually in the application.

Thanks. Before I try this I just saw that there's only this file in that folder. Shouldn't there be other stuff as well?

edit:
Reinstalling this folder and then reinstalling EDE did the trick anyway, thanks! :)

I'll be adding tonight a command in the tasktray icon to toggle locked/unlocked window mode if other people encounters the same issue.
 
Downloaded this today and when I ran the setup.exe it looks like it connects to a server and then closes. Nothing seems to be installed except for a shortcut in my start menu that has no target and does nothing when i use it.
 
I've added today an error window in case of irrecoverable errors, so you might have had one but no message was shown to you because you installed before I published ; you can update the application and let me know. If all else fails, try to uninstall the software and start again.
 
Tried it out last night.

Good work CMDR.

I've got 1 request and 1 issue

Request is, could this be made to track multiple CMDR's? I can click the bottom UNC path, and change CMDR log location, but would be good to have a tab/button to change CMDR's, but track multiple at the same time. Particularly the likes of me, will run 2 clients at the same time, when out exploring/trading/material gathering.

Issue is, it seems to go what appears in the journal only, rather than inventory. It reported 6 Rolls with one engineer using the 6 carbon EDE had in. My inventory had 138 carbon. Maybe have the ability to manually enter what you've got if necessary, then let it track the journal from there.

* Multicommander support has been requested, you can upvote the feature in github
* I don't understand the issue you're talking about. The current behaviour is exactly "manually enter what you've got if necessary, then let it track the journal from there"
 
Yep....I'd already done that before posting....

I'll wipe the whole lot off and re-download again....

*Edit*

Wiped off everything. Downloaded Setup.exe. Same error and it did not recreate the EDEngineer folder in AppData/Local

Not sure what could be wrong ; I just tried it on a fresh computer and it just works.
Can you try this command in an admin terminal :

rundll32 %windir%\system32\dfshim.dll CleanOnlineAppCache

and try the uninstall/install again

just to add to what CMDR HG has already said, you can adjust it to take into account cargo/materials you already had - you can either use the +/- buttons or just (double?) click on the numbers and type the actual figure in. You only need to do it once, then it will track all future changes.

When I installed EDE, it seemed to be way off on some, but very accurate on others. I think it looks at your entire journal since 2.2. went live, but obviously most people will have picked up mats before that. For me it showed minus figures for quite a few as I must have used more than I'd gathered since the journal feature was introduced with 2.2.

Oh - & fantastic work CMDR HG. this was exactly what I had been looking for!

Nope....

Again it has not created the folder in local and there is nothing in the start menu.....

*Edit*

Hold on......I might be onto something

*Edit*

Yaay...Sorted.....
The permissions on my user name folder were screwy so I sorted that out. Then I went in and deleted everything referring to EDE in the local/Apps/2.0 folder. Run the cache clear and run setup again and everything is fine.
