    Re: Alls Quiet?

    I'm working with Windows XP prof.
    And indead it is the Runtime that tries to connect.
    Zone Alarm gives a different warning when a program tries to connect the internal network (like messenger).

    Sorry, the solution of Worm (to edit the "Host" file, won't work).

    I think I have to live with it...

    You could put a static IP address on your machines to get around the whole DHCP thing. Depending on your router, you might be able to set the lease to not expire for say 30 days. Simply put, if your machine doesn't request an IP in 30 days, it might not get the same one. Other than that, I dunno. I can't even swear that this is truly the cause. It's just my best guess.

    This happens on my machines, too, which are running the most current ZAP software. (which, BTW is a pretty heavily used piece of software, so this isn't a moot point).

    It doesn't occur during authoring, just during the startup of the runtimes. It's only minimally disconcerting to me, since anyone running ZAP is likely to forgive such an occurence if they want to run your program. Still, I don't have any mapped drives, I'm running XP on one box and 2000 Pro on the other. It happens on both identically each and every time the built projects try to start.

    Worm, is there any way to cook up a method to override the search for netbios for built projects? It's a nuisance, is all.

    Part of the problem with the solution you're recommending, Worm, is that, at least in my case, DHCP is administered through a router, which dynamically assigns IP addresses depending on which computers are running, or have rebooted since last IP assignment. I can't call a computer an IP address, given its temporary assignment nature.

    I believe Worm is on the right track. My guess is that it is caused by one or more of the built-in variables being populated at runtime, in particular the network variables. That's my two cents.

    If I knew as much as Worm my head would explode. (into tiny little delicious cubes of corned spam)

    Re: Alls Quiet?

    We had sent some emails back and forth and had determined that there was a call being made to your DNS server.

    I can't remember exactly if you're running XP or 2000, but if you are then here's something to try.

    XP and 2000 in a network environment try to use DNS to resolve machine names. IF the DNS query times out, it falls back to Netbios. This might explain the call to DNS when you run your app. Especially if you have mapped network drives.

    Possible Solution:
    Add your Machines to your Hosts file. In the Winnt\System32\Driver\Etc folder there is a file named Hosts

    Edit that file with Notepad or your favorite text editor and add your machine names to the bottom of the file.
    Like this:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.254.2 Dual733
    192.168.254.3 Server
    192.168.254.4 W-Notebook

    Your system will look at the Hosts file first, then DNS, then Netbios. Give it a try, it certainly can't hurt.

    Re: Alls Quiet?

    As I remember from the responses to the thread you posted about that a week or so back, it isn't trying to access the internet but rather a network drive. Zone Alarm is not something I would use so it would be pointless to test your file.

    Perhaps someone else with Zone Alarm might be more helpful. Anyways suffice to say that you are misreading your firewall log/error, AMS has no ability to do what you are saying. It is impossible for a completely blank project to access the internet.

    Speaking strictly to your paranoia though [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img] , if it *were* trying to access the internet for some nefarious reason, wouldn't it be the runtime environment doing it instead of your blank project???

    Last thought, if your project is indeed blank why would anyone need to download it from you for testing. They could just pop open their app an start a blank project, and test that... [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    Quiet?

    Not in my brains.
    I'm still wondering why a pure, 100% blank project APMS (4003) runtime is trying to connect the internet (message of Zonealarm pro). Even with the preview function.
    Is there anyone who would try my project to test?

    I'm not sure how well that would fly with the people who have to make, pack, and ship those T-Shirts. (Little known IR trivia factlet, those awesome T-Shirts were actually made by Brett's mom, who is similarly awesome)

    Besides I doubt that would be a truly effective way of livening things up.

    CDs coming out very soon, this week has been a misguided mishmash of unfortunate multimedia related malfunctions on my comp which have led to new mysterious "clicking" sounds during my audio recording resulting in me promptly snatching several large clumps of hair directly from my scalp in a misguided effort to scotch said clicking. This technique met with limiited efficacy. BUT I think I actually managed to isolate and at least temporarily distract the enemy malfunction via some elaborate, albeit flowery, verbal admonishment gently stirred in with a few dozens hours of tinkering. It seems atrition was the key. So the long and short is CD will be done this weekend, even if I have to drink 9 pots of coffee and die.

    Wanna here something HILARIOUS though? Now that the clicking is gone the audio seems to be out of sync with the video. Harrhahrrhhehehh, yes sane, that's what I am hehe, hahhrhehahaheh...

    You could give away T-Shirts [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    When I first logged into this forum it seemed to be something everyone wanted.

    I've been racking my brain for days trying to come up with some strategies to combat this spring flat spot but I'm plumb stumped.
