Cigar Box V4
« on: April 05, 2018, 05:30:05 PM »
A couple of things of interest. 

You will find a new download tab on your main page (after you log in) and there you will find a new version of our CigarBox.  Please note that we are experimenting with download managers.  You might find the one located within your pilot profile nice, while others might like the tabbed version of a slightly different manager.  Please let us know which one you like!

Now a few words about upgrading Cigar Box.  I recommend that you delete the old version before adding the new one.  Go to Control Panel and select delete program, then find the old version and uninstall it. Probably throw in a restart and then install the new one.

This new version doesn't address the issue of having to restart Cigar Box after every flight if you want to load another leg.  That problem is being fixed, but it is our of our control....coming soon.....

The V4 Cigar Box just fixes a couple of things, and we have a few more to tackle in the near future.

Problems, just ask here.

Definitely no "Flight Options" or "Charter" box on my 1.1.4.0 update.

Interesting !

OHOH.. That's not right Rick... Something very fishy going on...

Sounds like a install..

This is what you should see after installing 1.1.4.:

I can confirm that the Charter box is there, left side at the Bottom.....a box called Flight Options and inside a check box for Charter.....

Now then, reasons you might not have it.....first, confirm in the lower right hand side you have the correct version showing...1.1.4.0  I suspect you may have not completed the uninstall.  You may want to go so far as to remove it via the control panel and then remove the directory (folder) that it was in.  This will be a complete, clean, install.  Removing all references to the old version may help, if needed, perhaps a different directory (folder).  For the record, I keep all of the versions in one master folder, and create a new folder in the master file for each version.

Please report back, both success and failure.

There should be no prerequisites to starting Cigar Box.  When you first start the new installation you will probably have to put in your ID and password, but that about it.  The URL should already be there. 

Is there a "Flight Options" box in the lower left hand corner?  Is the version correct in the right hand side?

I am going to download the file from the web site to double check the installation.

I just did a complete download from the website and a virgin install and everything is perfect at my house, now we need to find out what is going on at your house.

The only thing I can think of is to not (NOT) use the default directory.  Create a new one for the install.  In almost 5 years of working with this program, we have had our share of problems, but nothing like this.  It's like you have a different version. 

While this might sound counter productive, you might want to reinstall the previous version.  If you don't have it saved, let me know and I will send (or post) the old version to try.

I already have an email into the developer!  We WILL fix this.....promise.

OK.... I uninstalled it AGAIN + deleted the FSAddon folder.

Did a clean download of the file + installed it into a different drive + location.

Still NO "Charter Option.

I just went through the program files.....the Charter Box is an option which I can control through the program.  I just reset the data base and also the toggle that allows charters.....or not.  Please close the program and reopen and see if it is there.  If not, let me know and I will toggle it off and reset the system and then toggle it on with another reset and see if that works for you.  I also just tried in on the test site and it toggles off and on. 

Thanks for your patience......the end is near!!!!!
