Re: Cannot reproduce: HxD V2.1 The company name cannot be empty

I had another user report a similar error: https://forum.mh-nexus.de/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1156

Did you use Sandboxie maybe, or something similar that hooks into operating system functions?

Re: The company name cannot be empty

Ah, that's unfortunate, now it will be hard to reproduce. Maybe it's due to registry or file access redirections made by Sandboxie. What version of Sandboxie were you using? When you encountered the problem the first time, had you installed/used HxD before on this machine or was HxD installed/used t...

Re: Open source

Thanks for the tip, looks like a useful software. But the issues I mentioned in the posts above remain (the Attribute Changer GUI looks like it uses standard components, HxD however uses lots of custom ones, and I already have experience in how the two systems differ, especially the IDE/comfort etc.).

Re: The company name cannot be empty

Ok, I installed the exact same Windows version you have on a VM, transferred the same HxD.exe you are using onto the Desktop, and started it. No error message. It creates a Settings folder on the Desktop (because that's where the HxD.exe is) and works well. Same for the installable version: no error...

Re: Open source

Thanks for your suggestion. I was already trying to use FreePascal/LCL when porting HxD to 64 bit (it took long for Delphi to get a 64 bit version). The two systems are still different enough that it will require lots of work.

Also when speaking of obscure, FP/LCL is even less common.

Re: The company name cannot be empty

So it's most likely a Windows 7 SP1 issue. I am trying to make a VM, but don't have enough space on my system right now. Would you test a special version that has debugging information in it? Also, do you use a special sandboxing software, given then name "C:\Sandbox\user\Installateur\drive\C\&...

Re: Open source

The GUI is a major portion of the development time. GUI and speed go hand in hand, because the one needs to be designed for the other (handling and editing big files needs special data structures and the controls need to know how to deal with such structures). There is also a concept of gaps in file...

Re: Bug: Position desync when comparing files.

Can you provide example files, so it's easy/reliable to reproduce?

Here it does not happen under Win8.1 and HxD 2.5.0.0 64 bit.

Re: Open source

When you mentioned it was a somewhat old thread, I thought it was another one (I am sure there are similar ones somewhere, but couldn't find it with a quick search). This one is fairly recent, though, just started a couple months ago. As you mentioned, HxD is officially available for Windows only (t...

Re: The company name cannot be empty

I wonder if it's maybe an encoding issue (special code page setting). It's tricky to diagnose, since the French version works fine here. What Windows version are you using? Can you try moving HxD.exe into another folder and see if the error still occurs, or tell me what the folder path is (which is ...

Re: The company name cannot be empty

There are two types, installable or portable. Please tell me which one.

Re: The company name cannot be empty

Is it the portable or the installable version? And what is the version number and is it 64 or 32 bit version of HxD?

Thanks.

Re: Terms of Service

The license is part of the installation or portable and can be found under license.txt (in the same folder as HxD.ex).

Alternatively, you can find it here: https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/license.php

Re: Text column support for UTF-8, UTF-16 and other multi-byte text encodings (variable width encodings)

Thanks for the idea, but as you can read in the link, it is just a direct text output without editing capability. It also does not solve the many problems mentioned in this forum topic, that result from such a simple display approach, when you really would need to synch the byte array (left column) ...
