Missing Feeds on Restart in 188.8.131.522?
Monday, November 10 2008; by dareo - Blog
A number of users have stated that they are seeing a problem where v184.108.40.2062 of RSS Bandit loses their feeds on every restart. Specifically, after each restart it states that the number of subscribed feeds is 0 after loading the feed list even though feeds were added on the previous run. I am unable to reproduce this error on my own so I need information from people who are hitting this problem to see what the conditions are on your machines.
The first step is to ask if you look in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\RssBandit (if in Windows Vista) or C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\RssBandit (if on Windows XP) and see if there is a feedsources.xml file. If so can you look and see if it has an entry that looks something like
<source name="My Feeds" ordinal="2" id="4186" type="DirectAccess">
The id value should be different on your machine. Then can you see if you have a DirectAccess.<id>.subscriptions file in that folder? If so, does the ID match that in feedsources.xml? That file should contain your subscriptions starting from when a 1.7.0.x or 1.8.0.x version of RSS Bandit was first installed.
Secondly, is there a subscriptions.xml file in that folder?
Finally can you provide your error.log and trace.log files from recently running the application so we can see if there are any errors that correspond to not being able to save the file? Send the files to the following email address;
