New beta update posted

Postby ksinkel » November 29th, 2011, 1:16 am

I have just posted PWP 6.0.7 update to the beta release. Excepting an unforeseen problem, this should be the last beta before full release.

This release primarily deals with the memory problem experienced in workflow when breakpoints were used and corrects a few other bugs. In addition, the installer now supports setting a custom installation folder. Please let me know if anyone expeiences any difficulties in regard to this feature.

The default installation folder name has been changed to include the bit designation and PWP version. For this reason I recommend uninstalling your current beta manually (via the control panel) before installing the new one.

Thanks to all who have helped test the beta and made suggestions or reported problems.

You can download this version from here: http://www.dl-c.com/Temp/pwp60beta/pwp60beta.html

The installation subfolders

Postby tomczak » November 29th, 2011, 12:39 pm

I'm not sure if this is good or bad, it adds complication though - so just for the recored: if the installation folder is customized, the PWP6 installs its own subfolder structure down there by default. I don't know of a way to stop it from constructing subfolders.

e.g. if I set the installation folder to be: e:\pwp6\, the PWP is installed in: e:\pwp6\Digital Light & Color\Picture Window Pro 6.0\

This may be because the default path for installation is:

C:\Program Files\Digital Light & Color\Picture Window Pro 64 v6.0\Digital Light & Color\Picture Window Pro 6.0

This seems a rather convoluted set of empty folders before you get to the interesting bit!

The extra folders are apparently being created even though the folder specified in the installer does not have the extra levels. This unintentional and may be an installer bug.

Hi

I'm I correct that only icc2 profiles are recognised with this beta?

Maybe because of the change in path, but the new version did not pick up all my preferences. Specifically, it did not pick up my custom toolbar and where it was positioned. (Other preferences WERE retained, oddly.)

My custom toolbar was picked up.
