CACHEBOX SUPPORT

Post  ahomburg on Mon Jul 04, 2011 1:05 am

Is anybody still using this?

Anyone know of a support forum in english?

I have an older version (517) and I tried to update to the latest version (674) and the touch stopped working on the description page and the text was enlarged.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's my main geo-software, I only use GCz for impromptu caching now.

Only German Forum I think. Sad

HOWEVER, I upgraded to the latest version. Very Happy

Now for the bad news; it wasn't straightforward....
From memory you have to load a new version of .NET, a SQL update and delete your database because the data structure changed.

If I can find the info I'll post it...

Good Luck and it's worth it. cheers

PS I use a HTC Touch II.
PPS I think it's being ported to Android...

I have just tried to install these 2, and my version of .NET was already 3.5, so ok, no problem. I then tried to install SQL and the phone (HTC HD2) is saying "There is no application associated with "SSCEDeviceRuntime-ENU.msi". Run the application first, then open the file within the application" I am not really sure what this means.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

This is the full PC install which allows ActiveSync to then load it onto a Mobile...

Just the .cab on it's own is available here.

ok, thats all done, but no change to the cache page in cachebox, touch not operating.

I even went as far as updating to a newer version of the phone ROM.

Is there a particular order I need to do this in?

Thanks again tmax for your help.

After installation you should have an empty database with no caches. Does the software work then...

Does the software work at all after importing a GPX ?

Have you tried a new GPX from GS...

PS My memory card corrupted last night. Did a fresh install (ver 1.0.680) no problem....

OK, just uninstalled cachebox, removed remaining folders, re installed it, ran it, works ok (Although cant tell if the cache tab works due to no data), loaded a new database with ~300 caches, loads ok, all tabs ok except the cache tab, the touch is not working and all the text is large.
scratch
Might have to go back to 517 Crying or Very sad

So the map works, which would suggest it can read the data and it's in the correct format.
All I can suggest is that you try loading previous versions, maybe one of them install some fonts or something.

This page (in German) says there should be no problem installing...

The font problem described in Cachebox is caused by .NET 3.7.
Uninstall 3.7 and load 3.5, all should work fine...

PS 3.7 is too new....
