HG612 Modem Stats - Release v 3.0 for EXISTING users
« on: June 23, 2014, 05:43:41 AM »

A small program for existing v 2.x users to update to v 3.0 can be dowloaded from here:-

http://www.ronski.me.uk/Downloads/v3.0.0.0ProgramUpdates.EXE


Save it to & run it from the Scripts folder.


Existing ini file settings will be preserved, along with the addition of any other settings needed for v 3.0.0.0

Existing versions of the programs will be date stamped & saved in a subfolder of the Scripts folder, named Program Backups


In due course, when using the GUI, general program updates will be optionally automated.
This is not fully functional yet but in the meantime, the GUI itself can still be auto-updated.


Apart from a few minor bug fixes, improved reliability, improved compatibility with the DSLStats program & addition of ADSL compatibility for SOME Broadcom routers, not much has changed from v 2.x

It also removes the annoying every minute 'beep' or 'critical error' sound that some users have heard when using beta test versions for logging ongoing stats.


A full package version 3.0 will be uploaded to the usual FreewareFiles.com later this week, but there will be no need to download it for users that update from v 2.x via the updater program.


As always, constructive feedback is welcomed.

I get this message (see uploaded image) when running the installer in the scripts folder.

This is a Vista 32bit OS.

64bit binary then.

64bit windows can run 32bit binaries but not other way round, why you still on 32bit?

Sorry about that. I thought I had created a version that would work with 64bit & 32bit systems.

I have created another version for 32bit systems that also works on my 64bit W7 system.

I'll let you know as soon as Ronski has made it available for download.


If that still doesn't work, I could provide a plain zip file for unzipping & then running the updater program

Well Vista is an old OEM 32bit version that came with my PC many years ago and it's been on a couple of updated motherboards have not come across anything that needs over 4GB of ram as of yet  ;)

Though I should have purchase the 64bit version of Windows 8 but at the price of 24.99 during the launch the 32bit seemed a bargin  ;D

O.K. Ronski has now replaced the program (same download link) with the 32bit version that should work on all Windows versions from XP upward.

I have downloaded the file but smartscreen filter on Microsoft Security Essentials is unwilling to auto run this program as it's seen as a threat, any way I just unzipped the files and installed them manually and all seems fine.

23/06/2014 23:19:50.61  - **** ERROR!!! - ini_parse() - Couldn't open ini file for reading ****

PS have uploaded a full montage never mind the gaps thats when the PC is OFF and ON  ;)

Was that a one-off or is now it a constant issue?


The updater program should have read your original ini file & then updated it with your existing settings plus any new/missing v 3.0.0.0 settings.


That messages suggests that the ini file is missing, locked or corrupted.

If it's not completely missing, could you post it for me to have a look?

Why do you want the 64bit version, you said yourself that the 32bit version will run fine on 64 bit? It was only the installer file that was 64 bit the programs contained within are still 32 bit.

The logging/graphing programs are all 32 bit anyway.
It's only the updating program that I changed last night from 64 bit to 32 bit.
It works as 32 bit at my end (W7 64 bit system).

It does seem to have been a one off and I don't see any errors to-day.

As for the ini file I can't find or see one for HG612_Modem_stats, also checked in the C:\User\Name\AppData\local can see DSLstats configuration file and others.

Which location should it reside ?

it will run but isnt ideal.

since you compiled it I suggest distributing both versions from now on, as 32bit has to run on a emulation layer.  The vast majority of people run 64bit now days anyway.

It is named HG612_stats.ini

It has to reside in the Scripts folder otherwise you would see the error message every minute.


Do you have the view option set as "Hide extensions for known file types" in the folder options menu?
If so, you are likely to see more that one file named HG612_stats, but with different icons, one of which will be the ini file & another will be HG612_stats.exe
