Frodoplayer and Copilot wierdness
Well I have been using frodoplayer and Copilot 7 for almost 6 months now without a hitch. Got in the car today and the PC resumed from hibernation as normal except that CoPilot 7 and Frodoplay 1.08 crashed upon startup.
Ok I was thinking great maybe I am having memory issues. Rebooted the PC and checked. No problem there but as soon as either of those 2 programs start they crash. Tried other progams such as Outlook and Streets and Trips and they work fine.
Then I noticed that Copilot was displaying a new splash screen on startup. It was now a new image hawking Copilot Version 8 saying it had great new features. I do not have my wifi enabled and I know that there is no version 8 so it got me thinking. I went ahead and changed my date back a month thinking that it was time based easter egg. I then restarted Copilot and still got the Version 8 Advertisment.
Now I was really confused. :confused: I turned my attention to Frodo instead. I had installed WMP 10 about a month ago and thought that maybe it was causing Frodo to crash for some reason. I tried launching WMP by itself and got the following error:
Your date is currently set to Sep 17,2064. This program will lock up and not run properly. Please reset your date. :eek: Doh. I had never changed my year, only the month and hadnt even thought to look at the year setting but sure enough my PC had propelled itself 60 years into the future. I went ahead and set it to todays date and now Frodoplayer and Colpilot work fine.
Very strange. But hopefully anyone with similiar problems will not have to pull their hair out after reading this. :)
So long and thanks for all of the fish
Or in other words I will probably no longer be available to answer PM's about my setup. After 9 months of ups and downs I am getting out of the Car PC arena. (At least for now). I went throught 2 PC's that mysteriously started to malfunction. One would no longer boot everytime. It seemed to only work on random intervals. The other decided to crash at random intervals.
I am kind of tired of having my car reboot. :(
I have already ripped out all of the components and am back to the original head unit.
I am hoping that this may be my next option: http://www.estone-tech.com/
Anyway thanks to those of you that have helped me out and good luck to those that I helped. If you need to reach me you can still send email. I just wont be checking this board much any more so dont bother PM'ing.
