New patch problems
« on: November 30, 2008, 10:48:58 pm »
Used Winmx under XP with no problems (except 2005 temporary shutdown). Purchased Vista PC August 2007 and ran Winmx with old patch, no problems. Since using new patch incomplete files do not reload and all complete files are seen in library as incomplete. Posted these problems in forum but replies that I followed did not work. It appears to me that my problems are caused by the new patch. All programs, antivirus and firewall is exactly as before. Am I alone with this issue?

Bazmich,

I am posting this generically for you and another user, if you do a quick search through the Vista Compatibility issues thread you'll soon see that your not alone in these issues and that its also not patch related.  I feel there were a few important steps left out (like re setting your AEQ and AFS on your incompletes, and giving administrative rights to both folders not just the WinMX one) so be sure to go through these and post back here to let us know.

____________________________
There are two known issues with WinMX and Vista.

One is the Transfers not loading on restart, the second is the issue with them not showing as complete after they are definitely complete.

To fix the first issue
Go to My Computer > Then go to the main drive (usually this is C Drive) Here make a folder and call it what ever you like, for example 'My Downloads' or just 'Downloads'.

Now you will need to open your old folder where WinMX was previously storing your Incomplete files, usually in 'My Documents > Music'
(Alternatively you can also go to the Transfers screen now and click the button that says 'Open Incoming Files Folder', if your unsure where its located)
Copy all your files from this folder into the new folder you made at My Computer > C Drive > 'Downloads' (or the name you gave it).

Now open WinMX > Settings > File Transfers, at the top right side you will see 'Incoming Files Folder'  Click on the 'change' button now and browse to the new folder you made (example C:\Downloads).
Once your incompletes are in this folder, you'll be able to use the 'Load Incompletes' button located on the 'Transfers Screen' to Load them, keep in mind however that they will all need to have the 'Auto Enter Que' and 'Auto Find Sources' levels set (AEQ - 100 and AFS - 10min) in order for WinMX to 'know' to load them on the restart.

The second known issue is that annoying Incomplete tag left when you know for a fact that these files are complete.  What is happening is Vista is not allowing WinMX to change the name appropriately, the cure is to give both WinMX folder in C:\Program Files\WinMX & your new Incoming Files Folder (example C:\Downloads) administrative rights.

Here is a guide for that with Vista follow the same procedure for both folders.

Thanks Me Here, up and running again thanks to you. Nice to have solution explained that was easy to follow and (brain dead) understandable.
