This is crashing on Windows XP x86.  :(

I can include a crash report if that is of any help.

I have a fresh install of Miranda NG 0.95.2 Build #9966 and just downloaded the Tox binarys from first post.  On trying to create an account it is crashing on my Windows XP machine.  It works on my Windows 7 x86 machine although if move the copy over to my Windows XP x86 machine it will crash Miranda NG before it even gets to  load the GUI.

I have no other accounts other than the Tox account and just the standard plugins that come with a fresh install of Miranda NG.

I apologise if Miranda no longer supports Windows XP as I do realise that this OS is now considered old and no longer supported by MS.

in light of

This topic is dedicated to Tox protocol development and alpha-testing.

Latest binaries can be obtained here. (for use with nightly builds only).


Can you get the latest miranda alpha and see if it still happens?

Well, Windows XP should supported with Service Pack 3. Please read this and provide a crash report.

Thanks.

I hope the following  below is of some assistance. 

I am actually a programmer so I guess I should stop being lazy and investigate it myself.  ;D  Only I do not currently have the space to install a copy of Visual Studio at home.  ::)

Again:

Miranda NG Version: 0.95.2 build #9966

This plugin is meant for a nightly (dev) version of Miranda.

You can switch to it by going to options->Services->Plugin Updater->Files Source-> "Development Version"

Current version is Miranda NG version: 0.95.3 alpha build #10535

Sorry that will teach me for not reading my only excuse is that I am new to Miranda NG I decided to give it a try once I saw that a Tox plugin for it was under development (not sure that this is really a valid excuse for not reading though).  Anyway I will give the nightly (dev) build a try thanks.

**EDIT** Still crashing having updated to the nightly (dev) build.

Ok thanks for confirming that this is being looked into.

I am enjoying using and finding my way around Miranda NG and very much looking forward to using it with Tox.

I will wait for the fix.  :THUMBS UP:

Vulpix,  can you please test the latest version of Tox? It has a converter - ID went back to string, for me on my main Tox Miranda Set-up conversion went bad and contacts got duplicated and those with history were not those in use anymore. But I did not have any backup :( And on newly created and other profiles i could not repeat that at all - it got converted. Can you please make backup and try it? Maybe you will be able to repeat that, than we'll try and fix this. If you can - i will PM it to you.

Will check; gimme a minute. Also, you should try the autobackup plugin! It's helped me many times, hehe.

One contact got duplicated; the contact I had the most chat history with. The "active" one is the one without any chat history. Also, that contact was online at the time. However, there was another contact also online and that one did not get duplicated, so I don't know what causes this. It is definitely buggy though; I'm restoring my backup now.

Out of curiosity, why was the tox id converted to blob in the first place; and why is it string again now?

I was able to reproduce this every time. I even tried running a db check before doing this and it still happened.

I have next to 12 test set-ups (as a main Miranda NG tester), so they are not so important, also i keep them in dropbox, so i have full month of backups for every part of every set-up, by chance this one wasn't in dropbox folder, just a bad luck

Unsane tried to work with blob, it was more convenient to him, but then as it was converted - it brought many compatibility problems. so it had to be changed back.

Everything is working, no duplications etc. By the way, it looks like avatars will be implemented in toxcore pretty soon! https://github.com/irungentoo/toxcore/pull/1029
