22431Re: [Clip] Clip Stopped Working | File not found
- Jan 15, 2012Jim,
Sometimes it helps to take an error message literally. Since the message
>"File:C:\Program Files (x86)\NoteTab Pro\NTP_paste.txt" not found"says the file was not found, it probably wasn't written there in the first
I think the problem is access rights under Win 7. Execute this clip and then
use your file manager to verify if the file exists in that folder.
^!Continue NTB Favorites path is "^$GetFavoritePath$"
I suspect that it is not being created in the \Program Files folder. Assuming
it is not found there, look in your roaming folder or do a global search
file to find its location then change the delete command to the new path.
Although the clip may appear to work OK now, I expect that ^!SaveFavorites
actually performs a merge rather than a file write. This means that subsequent
executions of your clip would load all of your previously "favorited"
That could get messy.
What was the previous OS in which the clip ran OK? In Win 7, the "\Program
is a restricted folder and you don't have write access. Win XP does not
restriction. Vista introduced a mechanism for virtualizing restricted
access to fool
the application into thinking it is writing to the restricted folder but it
being written elsewhere. This probably works fine for the built-in
and ^!OpenFavorites commands but the ^!DeleteFile command explicitly references
the \Program File folder and does not trigger the virtualization.
I am curious - where in the help file is ^## documented? I can't find it
It is obviously much shorter than ^$GetDocName$^ but is also much more obtuse.
