View user's profile Send private message Hi folks,

new version of Pocket AMC Reader is now available.

This application will allow you to read catalogs created by Ant Movie Catalog on your Pocket PC. It will read XML catalog and import it into it's own database which is done for performance reasons. On each start the application will check size of XML file and when it changes, database is updated. Depending on size of your catalog, it might take up to 1 minute to import all movies and subsequently up to 15 seconds to start up.

What's new:
29.4.10 Version 0.31
    - FIXED "Images" renamed to "Pictures" to be consistent with AMC
    - ADDED Program will start even if XML is not present using cached data
    - ADDED Simple finger scrolling in details form. Finger scrolling in movie list is not available at the moment.
    - ADDED All settings can be now changed from within the application


Requirements:
    - Windows Mobile 6.x
    - .NET Compact Framework 3.5
    - WVGA display (but should work on VGA as well)
    - AMC database saved as XML
    - Images saved with relative links (not necessary, but otherwise you won't see images)
    - Application will take approximately as much disk space as is the size of XML file


Installation:
Cab installer is not available at the moment, so you will have to configure it manually. The application will not write anything to registry.
    1. Connect your phone to PC in Active Sync mode
    2. Copy your catalog in XML format and pictures anywhere you like (I
    recommend Storage Card)
    3. Download ZIP file and unpack it to your hard drive
    4. Copy whole folder "Pocket AMC Reader" to phone to \Program Files\
    5. Optionally create shortcut to start menu
    6. Run application
    7. Go to Settings and select your XML catalog
    8. Save, restart the application and enjoy smile


Upgrade:
Just overwrite files on your phone. If you wish to keep the database, don't overwrite "Pocket AMC Reader.db3"


Settings:
Catalog:
Path to XML catalog

Auto Search:
checked = When typing in search input, movies are filtered on the fly.
unchecked = You have to click on "Go" to filter movies.

Auto Search Delay (milliseconds):
If Auto Search is on, search is delayed by this amount of milliseconds allowing you to type words without having to wait for search results on each letter typed.

Remember Tab in Details:
checked = If viewing next movie details, last used tab is remembered.
unchecked = If viewing next movie details, always first tab is selected.

Decimal Ratings:
checked = Ratings are displayed with decimal, e.g. 5.4 .
unchecked = Ratings are integers, e.g. 5 .

Multiple Covers:
checked = Program can loop via multiple covers for one movie. If you have defined in XML image "Movie.jpg", programs scans for images "Movie_B.jpg", "Movie_C.jpg" etc. and displays them. This is workaround until AMC will support multiple pictures and for now is probably useful only for me.
unchecked = Only picture defined in XML is displayed.

Known bugs:
    - Since Windows Mobile doesn't support XML encoding iso-8859-1, I had to use different one and that means import will break some non English characters
    - Text in fields can be truncated due to bug in AutoResize class. Will look into that later.


Screenshots:

Enjoy smile

View user's profile Send private message Hi,

I am very interested in this application for PPC. However, I don't have a premium account with Rapidshare and really don't want to create one just to get this application. Is there an alternate way to download it or get it via zip file in email?

Any help you might provide would be greatly appreciated.

I'll host it on my server once I'll have downloaded it.

Hi, check your pm for download link. Anyways, I owned HTC Diamond 2 with WM 6.5, so it should work for you. You have the same screen resolution as well as same CPU. Be sure to install .NET Compact Framework 3.5 if you haven't done so. If app still doesn't work, post your error message and I will try to help. However I no longer have Visual Studio, so I won't be able to fix anything.

View user's profile Send private message Thank you elman, but i think i am to stupid to find it under your link.
I have installed .NET Compact Framework 3.7. The Program doesn't start and the error message with v0.30. is:" Error opening AMC database. Check your settings and restart application."
I changed the settings in Pocket AMC Reader.Settings.xml with XLM Notepad, but after that this the error message is: "The database file is locked".
But it isn't locked.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hallo antp, that would be very kind.

View user's profile Send private message porzviez, try it and let me know if it works. With version 0.31 there is no need to directly edit Pocket AMC Reader.Settings.xml. You can do that from within the application.

If it still doesn't work, I suspect it might be because of incompatibility between .NET Compact 3.7 and SQLite. You can try:

- Replace SQLite library. Delete files SQLite.Interop.065.DLL and System.Data.SQLite.dll from Pocket AMC Reader, download http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlite-dotnet2/files/SQLite%20for%20ADO.NET%202.0/1.0.66.0/SQLite-1.0.66.0-binaries.zip/download and copy files bin\CompactFramework\SQLite.Interop.066.DLL and bin\CompactFramework\System.Data.SQLite.dll to Pocket AMC Reader folder (just files, do not create subfolders)

or

- Uninstall .NET Compact Framework 3.7 and install .NET Compact Framework 3.5

View user's profile Send private message First, thank you very much for your help.

I have got the same problems with version 0.31. I tried to delete Net Compact 3.7, but after a new start during the installation of 3.5 my phone told me, that it is still there, so i can't install 3.5.
I changed the 2 dll's like you told me, but it doesn't work:

Fehler
Pocket AMC Reader.exe
TypeLoadException
Datei- oder Assemblyname
System.Data.SQLite, Version=1.0.65.0,
Culture=neutral,
PublickeyToken=1FDB50B1B62B4C84
bzw. eine Abhängigkeit davon wurde nicht gefunden (could not be find).

I will change Net Compact the next time i have do to a cold start, i hope it is not tomorrow, it'S SO MUCH WORK:

In meantime, i can see all my DVD's as AMC.xls on my phone, But without pictures

Thanks

Well, basically it says that my app needs older version of SQLite database, so replacing files won't work.

Try that .NET downgrade as you mentioned.
