ListView not working correctly

5 posts in this topic

I am writing a program for our school system that will allow students to install software on their PCs without having admin rights. Through what we're calling an "App Store", we can choose what programs they can install/remove.

I started the program with 2 apps, and everything worked great (both were installed on my PC). All the apps are presented in the GUI with a ListView. Now I added a 3rd app that isn't installed, and what happens is that it scans the first app fine, then the 2nd app fine, and then it reaches the 3rd app and it cannot find the program because I don't have it installed. Instead of just finishing the checks, it actually removes the information that I populated in the previous row.

If I don't perform a check on the last program/function (_SpectogramChk()), then everything works fine. I suspect that if I install the program, everything will be ok too. I need it to wrok though without specific programs initially being installed.

If anyone has some time to spare looking over my code to see what I have missed I'd appreciate it.

Hopefully my comments provide a decent enough amount of info for you to see what's happening.

Is the name of the program spectOgram or spectROgram? I did a quick google on the name spectogram and didn't find anything other than some obvious misspellings on the sites that listed it that way.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Good spot BrewManNH! It is Spectrogram. No idea what it does, just need it available for someone to install. :x

What an idiot! I found the problem. I just had the last program refreshing the wrong row, so it was blanking out the contents. I changed the number and it is working fine!

Thanks for your time all.

Another thread that may help someone else though!

Just one improvement:

original

Local $uRegKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
    For $i = 1 To 500
        $AppKey = RegEnumKey($uRegKey, $i)
        $uAdobeReaderDisp = StringLeft(RegRead($uRegKey & "\" & $AppKey, "DisplayName"), 12)
        If $uAdobeReaderDisp = "Adobe Reader" Then
            $uAdobeReaderVer = RegRead($uRegKey & "\" & $AppKey, "DisplayVersion")
        EndIf
    Next

new

Local $uRegKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
 $i = 1
    While 1
        $AppKey = RegEnumKey($uRegKey, $i)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
  
        $uAdobeReaderDisp = StringLeft(RegRead($uRegKey & "\" & $AppKey, "DisplayName"), 12)
        If $uAdobeReaderDisp = "Adobe Reader" Then
            $uAdobeReaderVer = RegRead($uRegKey & "\" & $AppKey, "DisplayVersion")
        EndIf
    $i += 1
    WEnd

As you can see there is no limit for number of installed applications anymore.
