Thumbs up Re: Re: Re: Re: Help Please

When you cut and paste the "Favorites" url under configuration tab into your browser, does it load? Do you use a proxy service by chance? LPC is a .net application and it should follow your proxy settings (if you use any) under "Internet Options". If they are set, are you able to temporarily disable and try? Another thing to try, although I do not think it is necissary, try right clicking on LPC icon and doing a "Run as Administrator". Does the problem still occur?
I tried running as admin and it works fine thank you for the help!

And now it shows downloadable plugins also! THANK YOU!

And great program, by the way.

Re: Compatibility issues

How about adding an optional configuration field to specify the root folder for the .zip file? This would solve many .zip file structure issues. If you'd be willing to do that, I'll add your configuration file to all my plugins.
Definetly room to do something like this in the future.

Although, I'd like to encourage all authors to consider supporting LPC. I've made it fairly painless. Most plugins are inherently supported, and LPC can take care of the rest. That said, deviations from the typical plugin folder structure in zip packages make this difficult. Thankfully, this isn't a common problem. Only a few authors have plugins like this, and I've tried to contact them all.

Support helps increase player community's ability to explore the great work the Lotro LUA communities work, and participate in the LUA plugin beta. Added interest in this area by player base could encourage Turbine to focus more attension there-in. And for what its worth, when I add each author's plugin to the data feed, I do so by clicking "Favorite". Its a win all around.

Re: Installation Errors

I am very sorry it did not install. Error code 2908 can usually mean a bad install of the .NET framework on your machine. In rare cases this can also be caused on a system by bad registry settings. In your case I would suggest
  1. Uninstalling LPC
  2. Uninstalling .NET 3.5
  3. download, install, and patch .NET.
  4. Install LPC

Installation Errors

I'm attempting to install this and I'm getting the following message.

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2908.

After clicking through I get the following error:

Could not open key:
UNKNOWN\Components\A025457199757FEBBD2BC76016538DC E\D8187FB3284267642A7319A5119A8774. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

Installation Incomplete

The installer was interrupted before LOTRO Plugin Compendium could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again.

I disabled/game mode/exit Internet Security and tried to install it repeatedly. The game files end up in C:\Program Files\Lunarwater\LOTRO Plugin Compendium and the PluginCompendium.exe opens and functions, but also throws off errors when I attempt to use it to update. For example:

It downloads the zip folder to update, but then tosses the following error:

Problem while installing plugin Bevy o Bars ( Any plugin reacts the same. )

Cannot load 7-zip library or internal COM error! Message: Your 7-zip library does not support this archive type.

Thank you so much! That is a really great plugin you've made. Glad I could finally add it to the list of LPC supported plugins.

My first release of one that is for Mac / Linux is here. I have yet to test it for Mac though so if someone gets to doing it first, please let me know.

It depends on the sophistication of the user... To be truly "mac-like" it should be a bundle which can be clicked upon to launch.

As for locations...

<user>/Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/ -- is where the "Plugins" and "PluginsData" folders reside. Both CXG and (I assume) WINE link the Windows Bottle "MY Documents" to the users "Documents" folder. It's all pretty transparent. Screenshots and .ini files for the Turbine client reside there.

As for where to install -- <user>/Applications/ is where the individual user would (should) look for applications. System wide applications -- for multi-user environments - go into /Applications. However, I have noticed with Lion now, that "Everything" goes into /Applications. I suspect Apple may have changed its recommendations to developers for the current release, Lion (10.7.x)

If needed, additional support "stuff" goes into <user>(or root)/Library/Application Support/<product-name>/ Interestingly, under Lion, Apple made the "Library" directory no longer visible to the GUI (Finder) by default. It also made the GUI "Applications" default to the root version.

FWIW, the "Java Preferences" application, sits in Utiliities under /Applications.

Congrats on the Java version.

Just got word today. Version 11 of CrossOver Games CXG goes into beta next week. With, one assumes WINE 1.4, which just went to RC2.

Tried loading MONO 2.6.7 into CXG, but since I've never used it before ... "nothing happened" (LPC still crashed) -- I assume it is a library that needs to be compiled against, but haven't read any docs about it at all yet. CXG does have an install script for MONO that makes "that part" painless.

Let me know if you want someone to test the Java version in the Mac/CXG/WINE environment.
Thanks. I will bring my macbook home this weekend.. I suspect the difficulty with mac version will be determining proper install locations, and also application bundle creation. Do you think I need to create an application bundle? Or will people be ok with a single jar and a bash script that launches it
