IMatch 5.7.4 Database Diagnostics -- Warning?
« on: December 13, 2016, 05:05:13 PM »
I just downloaded and installed v. 5.7.4, with no problems, BUT -- when I ran (as advised) the Database Diagnostics, it completed with no problems BUT indicated there was 1 warning.  I looked at the log file, but could not find any issues or warnings there.  On running the Database Diagnostics a second time, there were again no problems, and this time NO warning.

My question: if there is a "warning" reported by Database Diagnostics and I examine the log file, how do I quickly find the cause of any "warnings" that are reported? 

Other than that -- easy download and install, and I love the new keyboard shortcut commands!

Without the log file I cannot tell for what IM issued a warning.
The re-creating of potentially missing file.name IMatch tags does not issue a warning.
I would guess that the diagnosis found some other small issue and fixed it.

Downloaded and Installed without problems.

Tom, I had this warning also, though I find not a message, what was wrong.
Normally, if I have such a warning, I can find the problem.

MAYBE it has something to do with the "repaired" missing data.

I would say, we can stay cool.  ;D

I would bet, you had the warning in the same place like me.

IMatch database diagnosis logfile closed: 13.12.2016 18:32:11 (00:06.41)

I guess, the repaired data is showed in my case in this line:

Code: [Select]
Checking photools.com metadata:
    Result: 26117 files with missing data updated.
Completed.

I will sleep well, this has nothing to say, I think.  8) :)

Thanks, Mario, for your work!!!
Best wishes from Switzerland! :-)

Then the warning was correct. The diagnosis found something and fixed it.
As always with warnings: Re-run the diagnosis and if the warning is gone, all is well.

Something strange happend when I download the file. I got the following name:

imatch_5_7_4-h5v8j7igadmhhiltsjlhxhkwfzbcmmri.exe

I tried it also by entering the website "Manually". Same result. Something weird or new developments? Have not yet executed the file.

My download of 5.7.4 also had an unusual name: imatch_5_7_4-115azq18ort9pipwn3vvola15ma7vmc0.exe  -- but it downloaded and installed perfectly well anyway.  Was I just being too trusting?

This is your very own, freshly minted, personal file name  ;)

The new "no fuzz, works even over super-slow connections" method I've introduced a couple of months ago requires a unique file name for each download. This is why there is now a unique prefix.

You can verify downloads from my web site always via my digital certificate that I use to protect each download. You can see this certificate in the properties of the file in Windows Explorer and Windows will show a warning if the certificate is invalid or broken. This also indicates incomplete files.

I have to pay 100$ :-X  per year just to have this certificate and to be able to digitally sign the downloads for you.

The installer itself verifies the file. And you can always compare the SHA checksum of the downloaded file with the SHA checksum shown next to the download link in the customer portal.

Safety first.

I have that 1 warning at the and, too, but no warning in the test itself. I rerun the diagnose, and did not find any error. So, "Ende gut, alles Gut"! :)
Installed and works perfect. Thank you, great work! :)
