No categories available any more after cold start

Postby Nex » Fri Jul 22, 2005 7:13 am

Hi,

I come across a strange phenomenon whenever I completely shutdown Windows (cold start of XP Pro) - simply rebooting (warm start) does not give the following problem:

WPC is set to auto start. But after the aforementioned cold boot, it gives an error message stating that there are no wall paper categories available to start.
I then have to open the console and "enable" categories 1/2/3 by hand since WPC has disabled them ALL. :roll:

FYI: every category 1/2/3 has two sub-categories: Day + Night. These have timer-settings (from 7AM to 7PM for Day and from 7PM to 7AM for Night, so there should always be categories available if the timer functions, in other words: there is no time gap).

Any suggestions?
Thanx!
Nex

What version of Wallpaper Cycler are you running? 2.x or 3.0?

Thank you for the information.
I'm going to try to reproduce the issue on one of my test systems and report back in this thread.

Could you post the exact setting you've set for the time-limit on the day/night categories? With the "exact settings", I mean all the settings in the "Limit Category Use" for both a day and a night category.
