Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

Susan, you're supposed to put your ""s around the entire path, not just the Program Files part.

L:\br>"c:\Program Files (x86)\Atlantis\atlantis.exe"

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

Gabriel - it's easier (to me) because it never conflicts with real drives and it's less confusing than keeping BR paths and OS paths being different but pointing to the same place. I prefer for all my paths to be OS Paths. I only use those weird BR paths when I have to. The problem is then you have...

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

Just because it works from the command line from those non-standard paths doesn't mean that the location isn't necessarily part of the problem. Still try %appdata%. John, you say you have something easier then a drive statement but then you describe something much more complicated then a drive state...

Re: Use of Cloud Services

He's talking about cloud services to host applications from, not websites.

This is a replacement for the server sitting in the corner of your office, not a replacement for your web host.

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

John may be able to help more, as he's does it for all his customers. But I'm pretty sure you can just add a drive statement, such as: DRIVE T:,%appdata%\SherrifsRelief,.,\ you can make the folder (from command line or in a cmd file) by saying: cd %appdata% mkdir SherrifsRelief and so on. Basically,...

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

Well, it would be pretty ugly. But we could probably figure out how to kill the task using the windows command line program "taskkill". We'd have to list the processes to a file, then parse the file to get the process ID, then give the command again specifying which task to kill. Yes, it w...

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

Of course! I'm happy to brainstorm with you! I know the process is just hanging and not returning any error. Thats why I described how to do it a different way, so that even if the process hangs, your program still retains control and can launch a second process that will hopefully succeed (since yo...

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

This might not be pretty, but it may work: Is there a way you could trap for the error, and when you encounter it, sleep for a minute, and then try again? In BR when I call external programs, I often do it with the -C switch so that BR continues running .., then I loop and check for the appearance o...

Re: System call to Atlantis word processor hanging

If its only the first time the user logs on, that gives me a couple other questions: Is this running off an external hard drive? or an internal one? I had an issue before where the first time I try to run a program, it spins up the external hard drive, and that takes a second. That was causing the p...

Re: BREAK Command Features

example: CLEAR DISPLAY -P BR ALL This will display all variables changed in all programs run. Given that information one could create a debug library to be referenced by the following snippet: DEF FNDEBUG IF NOT DEBUG_LIBRARY_CALLED THEN LIBRARY "DBGLIB": FNDEBUG1 DEBUG_LIBRARY_CALLED = 1...

Re: BREAK Command Features

BREAK IF FNmyUserFunction FNmyUserFunction would be executed before every statement and if it returned a nonzero value the program would drop into step mode. Gordon, if fnMyUserFunction can be any statement that returns zero/nonzero, and not just a custom function, then that would provide the best ...

Listviews By Hand

Someone at the conference asked me to share some examples of populating a listview by hand. Here's one I do for one of my customers. This code is copy and pasted out of one of my programs. I attempted to remove parts of the program that were not relevant, but its possible that I removed something on...

Re: BREAK Command Features

This is pretty neat. I did not realize number 1) (that break can name a user defined function, or a label for that matter). I didn't realize they could handle Clause numbers. Conditional breakpoints are cool, but they're kind of elementary .. I mean most of us have been doing the same thing but with...

Re: missing accuracy

Ok, from some further research, I've found out whats going on. The # next to your PIC statement is whats causing BR to treat it as a number instead of as a string. Once BR treats it as a number internally, you're limited to 15 digits of accuracy, because of a limitation of the Intel chipset with res...

Re: missing accuracy

From the page on the Wiki, it looks like RD doesn't change how many digits of accuracy you get, it just determines how many of those digits are before the decimal and how many are after. I thought there was something else you could set. I had this problem when I expanded my accounting software to ke...
