  • Startup screen?

    Hello everybody!

    Haven't been around this place for years!! I see a lot of changes! (in a good way)

    anyway, I just revived my carPC with a new SSD hdd, new motherboard and I installed the new RideRunner ... I've had experience with the old versions so I know my way around it but I haven't been able to solve one thing... Recently I started getting this screen that tells me to go to the website for an updated version and so on... I already have the newest version but this screen keeps coming back... what am I doing wrong?

    I'm sure it's been answered but I can't seem to find it anywhere... I know...

    anyways, thanks!!

    Just a quick guess without knowing the software. What about your system time? is that correct?

    Alot of software uses the system time to check if a certain time period has passed.

        Computer date/time is wrong and/or using GPS as server.

              Search!! All you need to do a simple search and do < 2 min of reading you'd have all of your answers.

              There are now at least 4 threads dealing with this question...

                  am I blind? I checked all posts back until the date of that release and I didnt see anything that ressembles this.

                  I checked titles, is it buried in a giant thread about the update?

                  EDIT: ok I found one, basically it just says to make sure ur date and time are right and not use the "update time from GPS"?

                  I'm curious tho is there a way to turn this off completely? I didnt see an answer to that because I dont wanna have to get this screen every couple months...

                      I'd normally say you didn't read far enough after finding that answer b/c that usually follows that Q&A.

                      NO, it's there for a reason. In a nut shell, keeps others from calling it their own work, and shows guino's and the other (Me and mitchjs) codes commitment to keep this going and updated.

                      I really do hate to be harsh like this but...C'mon people try reading/searching. Thats not really asking too much for Free software like this.

                          Well, first, I wanna say sorry for posting this, I said I searched already but nothing showed up.


                          Anyway, you guys were right, for some reason my date was back in 2006 and as soon as I fixed it, it went away! Thanks again!
