    carma hangs up during boot

    i installed the version from auto app mart and then the most current vcersion on your website both hung aup at the same point. when i start the app it stops at
    "[20] Loading plugin CMWebDervice.dll"

    I'm running win7, does this have anything to do with it? Please let me know, because everything i've read about your frontend makes me want to try it. I made a small donation to autoappmart planning to make a better one if i found the program satisfactory.

    thanks,

    i also just tried to uncheck webservice in setup and found that when i try to change most settings it tells me access denied.

    Hi!

    Thanks for your time testing it, and of course, your donation!

    I think this freeze problem is caused by the weather or webservice
    plugins. I'm going to analyze it this weekend. It has probably to do
    with not being able to find some internet address or something.
    I'm sure I can solve it quickly (as in, this weekend, or maybe tonight
    already).

    The "access denied" is weird.. Ah.. well... not at all, I think...
    Could it be that you're running it from a regular user account?
    I think I have to move the config and data files one more time.
    It is now being stored in the application folder, but on Vista and
    Win7 these folders are protected (only admins can write there).
    I'll modify it so it will use the official Windows appdata folders, it is
    also more compliant to the Vista/Win7 way of storing settings and data.


    Allow me to fix a new build this weekend,
    as usual, I'll keep everyone posted on the progress.

    Again, thanks for your donation and your time
    testing CarMa. We really appreciate it!

    I've uploaded a new version. Hopefully it will fix your configuration issues.
    The application will now use the User Profile folder to store all data.

    Let me know if it works!

    Updates on interface

    I have installed the front end on my PC, everything seem to work great! I have one question, where is the video library button? I have went through the CarMa Settings and configured the videos path, only I see no option in the interface to browse/play videos! Any input would be appreciated!

    Thank you for testing!

    Unfortunately, it's not there yet.. Video support is almost finished, I'm probably
    going to release it together with the XM radio player plugin. It's planned for the
    second or third week of january. (Still need to finish a few things for it,
    including the interface and a fullscreen related bug - it doesn't allow switching
    back from fullscreen :s )

    looking forward to the update! Also, how about an external application launcher? I like using Navit for my navigation software, how about an application panel that basically launches the app and minimizes CarMa until closed. If this makes any sense...

    Dream CarMa

    Here is a quick photo shop of CarMa with some more feature icons and an "applications list". I know they are all browsers, but they dont have to be, this is just an example!!
