Miranda NG can't open profile
« on: 03 12 2016, 20:18:28 »
Hi, just yesterday I have normally runned miranda NG a few hours, it suddenloy showed some error (I didn't noticed what) and it crashed. After try to rerun miranda I ended with error to load profile. It seems my profile is somehow corrupted. I am adding error screens, it is in czech so I am adding casual ENG translates:
miranda ng error1 - <unknown format>
miranda ng error2 - cannot find correct database addon to open ''.
miranda ng error3 - Miranda cannot open ''. No correct database driver installed.

It won't show file name or name of profile, just ''. I tried to fix it with db checker, but it can't read it too. It seems my old profile is somehow damaged, because my very old backup of this profile works at least in db checker. When I edited my .dat file with classic text editor, at first look it seems correct, but I am sure, there will be some problem.
THX for help.

We'll need more info than that. I've seen this happen before during one of the updates which changed dbx_* plugins.

Can you post your version info? Also, miranda writes crashlogs into miranda folder\profiles\<profile name>\CrashLog\<date_time>\

Can you post the txt file from the crash here?

version is 0.9.5.17337 x64, but in logs folder there is nothing. Can you write me a file pattern of logs? I'll check on my drive if it is not somewhere else, I have installed miranda as portable, but I checked app data too, maybe I accidentally deleted it so I ll check drive with restoration for file pattern. THX

Hi!

Unfortunately that type of version information is not useful. Please read this wiki page http://wiki.miranda-ng.org/index.php?title=Reporting_bugs and more specifically this one: http://wiki.miranda-ng.org/index.php?title=Version_information

Also, the logs look like this crash<timestamp>.txt (for example)

crash20161201014836.txt (and mdmp, but that one is somewhat useless).

Version information should look like this:

I sort of don't understand the statement "I have miranda installed as portable" ; miranda is kinda portable by default. Are you using some weird "portableapps" version? If so, please backup your installation and then try using your profile in real miranda.

Thanks!

no I am using installer from your website http://www.miranda-ng.org/en/ and choose portable installation like in this picture, so I have profile and everything in miranda installation and not in appdata, I don't know if there is any other diff between normal and portable installation. I did not find any crashlogs. As I understand, crashlogs are created with crashdump plugin and it was not installed with my version by default (I last installed it very long time ago and I updated app only through updater), so maybe this is why I can't find any crashlogs. But at least I have that miranda version (I had to create a new empty profile to get this info):

I actually remember something like this happening... a long time ago. You can try loading your profile in the development version of miranda (the alpha; it's very stable and quite usable, I use it daily myself).

Make a backup of your miranda before trying though; but afterwards you can just grab the dev version and unpack it over your existing miranda. Then just launch the dev version and it should automatically try to update all of the "stable" plugins to alpha versions and then perhaps let you use your profile.

I tried that but nothing changed, still can't read the profile... I think that some flag or something, that is setting my profile file as miranda profile is broken in my profile .dat file. I backed up of my profile .dat about 2 months ago, so I think I will try to restore from it. History is saved in .dat file right?

Did you looked at the *.dat file in some hex viewer/editor? Does it have some content or is it all blank? And copy first few characters from the file, it contains signature determining "version" of the *.dat profile.

And yes, history is in *.dat, same as contacts and settings. Everything is there.

thx, I didn't try hex editor, good point :D
I added screen of wrong profile, new working profile and very old but working backup of my profile. Copy from this hex is little problematic, but if you need text, I ll try to get text through some other hex ed

Hi, so I fixed it somehow, as we can see at images in my last post, it seems that text Miranda NG DBu has been somehow corrupted, so I copy from the first row last 4 hexa values from my very old valid profile to corrupted profile and it seems it is working. I tried that before with classic text editor, but it didn't work, maybe there were wrong values copied. So THX for help, I think this topic can be locked :) Have a nice day

Hi!

Good to hear. I strongly recommend making a backup of your profile and then running an aggressive database checker against it to make sure no further corruption exists inside (to prevent any "surprises" ).
