...update, figured out the old password but every time I try to download the current history I get a Windows crash error.

You’re using an older version, which is no longer compatible with the DAZ site, that’s why it crashes.

It should offer to auto-update though when you start it, doesn’t it do that? I’ve just tested the same version here and it does show the auto-update box as it should.

Which OS are you using?

...well it saves the login info for the History Manager OK just not for the browser window.  That is where I have to manually key everything in.


I don’t use IE because of it’s poor track record with security issues.


...as to the crash when downloading the history file, not sure why that is happening. Could there have been a recent update that I missed perhaps?

——-


OS is XP32


..ach!  Because it mentions DSON and I was also in the forums at the time, I thought Daz was sending me info about an update for the plugin so I didn’t run it.


...installed and everything is working again

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

You don’t need to type anything if you have saved your login, just click the “Login Browser” button and the browser logs in automatically. May take a little while sometimes, so just wait.

I don’t use IE because of it’s poor track record with security issues.

Well that may have been true in the past, but today it’s different, espcecially when it comes to IE 9:


“Now that all of the major browser makers are taking security more seriously, you can expect to see security fixes and features implemented more frequently. The final decision about using the browser you think is most secure or most suited to your needs can be made by reading the browser specific security features. Although at present – Internet Explorer is known to be the most secure browser when it comes to blocking Malware.”

http://www.vikitech.com/5021/firefox-vs-chrome-vs-ie-browser-security


“A browser has two main roles to play when it comes to secure browsing. First, it must protect the user from malicious sites and software. Second, it must protect itself from malicious attacks. Not long ago, Firefox was ahead of Internet Explorer (IE) when it came to the robustness of its design and its ability to protect itself, while IE was plagued with countless vulnerabilities.

However, since the release of IE7, Microsoft has narrowed the gap considerably. This is borne out by Secunia’s browser security fact sheets . Although there are only results covering the second quarter of this year for IE9 and Firefox 4, IE9 does marginally better. Between the older versions—IE8 and Firefox 3.6—Internet Explorer, again, has had fewer vulnerabilities.”

http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/answer/Firefox-versus-IE-Which-is-the-most-secure-Web-browser
http://secunia.com/resources/factsheets/2011_browsers/


“The Carlsbad, Calif.-based independent testing firm tested a group of popular browsers by exposing them to a set of malware URLs targeting European users. The firm said Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) achieved a blocking rate of 90%. Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), the latest iteration of Microsoft’s browser, earned a 100% blocking rate when its application filtering technology was enabled.

“Internet Explorer 9 was by far the best at protecting against socially engineered malware,” NSS Labs said in its Web browser security report.  “The significance of Microsoft’s new application reputation technology cannot be overstated.”

See my other post. You’re supposed to get this update box when you start any version older than 0.538 (the current):

Hi Taozen

I’ve been managing my history, downloads and udpates by hand but I’ve finally given up and am thinking about using your tool. Just a quick question I haven’t been able to find in this thread: will it tell me which products have been updated? I can’t bloody keep track of that anymore angry Really, that and the duplicate orders should have been fixed by DAZ some time ago.

Thanks in advance.

No, it can’t tell you which products that have been updated. But the downloader/installer DAZ is working on should be able to do that.

But it can tell you which of the products you own that have been updated to DSON format.

Just a note… I love the History Manager, but with this latest version I’m finding a bug that I didn’t notice before: specifically that it’s not catching a lot of the bundled products that I believe the brevious version DID catch.  Fortunately I also keep an excel record of everything and use that as my final reference before hitting buy, but besides the contents of most recent PC extravaganzas, I’ve so far noticed that the contents of the MIchael Five and Victoria 5 Pro bundles aren’t showing individually… for example, when I search for Preppy for M5, it doesn’t show at all in the current version’s search… and that the contents of the Fantastic Five Westpark collection aren’t showing.

“And on the subject of bundles, exactly WHY does the M5 Pro Suite have a V5 DRESS and the Troll in it? Exactly what kind of “pro” IS M5?  Apparently one who likes to dress up in drag and go cruising down in the red light district of lower Middle Earth.”

Until now no version of the History Manager lists the contents of the bundles. As far as I know, Taozen works on a solution, to list the bundled products, by use of the data on my Fun with Bundles page.

Oops, yeah… sorry, MAJOR league jet lagged after two weeks in Japan.  long face  I was thinking of my Orcasoft Daz History plugins, which did include a bundle tool, but I took it off the home PC after the store changes k.o.‘d it.  And I’ve actually contributed to Fun with Bundles, which is an invaluable resource.  Like I said, brain running at about 60% right now… sorry for confusionneed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

No problem, DAZ History Manager from Taozen and DAZ History Script from OrcaSoul read and sound very similarly, even if they are for different use.

All OrcaTools DAZ Scripts do not seem to work, after the lot of changes at the DAZ pages. My latest news from him was, that he is preparing for an art show. After the 18th of Nov., when the show ends, he will work at the scripts again.

I can’t reproduce that, it works fine here on both XP and Win 7 - 64.

If you send a copy of the error log to support @ taosoft.dk I’ll take a look at it.

Has DAZ changed the DSON page address again? Haven’t been able to get a list for over 24hrs, coincidentally from the time Black November kicked off. I am getting a ‘not currently available, try again later’ message.

Hope it’s back soon, amazing how I rely on this program now.

Yes I had trouble too.  They have taken off the written link but if you click here you get to it.
click on the shop item first and then you will see the page that has this.
I don’t know why they would have taken the written links away and made this page much harder for us to find.

Hi esther, thanks for that but I am talking about the updates list generated by the DAZ History Manager program. I can find the category here but the update functionality in DHM is broken. Last time this happened it was because DAZ changed the page path which DHM uses to check against so I was wondering if it had happened again.
