Version 4.05 bugs fixed question

Recommended Posts

Hi, The version of BMS we are currently using (4.05) has a very annoying bug, whereby times and dates set in the date validity dialogue change each time you edit this screen, moving one hour / one day earlier. We have been putting up with this for some time, by not setting dates / times, however this means somebody has to remember to remove the auto play times when an announcement is not required. It was suggested to me by Technical support that this was a problem with time zones, we are based in the UK. Does anybody know if this problem has been resolved?

 

Thanks in advance.

Same here. I am also UK based, but this problem comes and goes. Sometimes it will behave itself, other times I have to set the validity dates two hours ahead. Annoying indeed. I've also found that my BMS don't delete expired music/announcements properly. I have several expire at the same time and only one will be deleted. Doesn't help that the auto-delete settings are most ambiguous to say the least.

Hi Spoon, I think I may have found a "fix" for this problem. It may not be convenient in all setups, particularly if you use the PC running the application for other things. I have changed the time zone to Australia, and disabled the auto DST update (because it would fall back in March and spring forward in October!). I have added a note to the desktop and diaried a reminder to change the time at the end of March and October. Since doing this, it has not changed any times or dates.

 

With regards deleting files, I do not use the auto delete function, but when attempting to manually delete files, I often get an error message saying I cannot delete a file because it is in use. It seems to be the last file to be played. Once another file has been played, you can then delete the other file! Most annoying!
