Redesign Update: $&@#*@!%!

December 26, 2015

Since I last posted here, I’ve made some progress on the redesign. When you install 7-Zip, this happens:

7-zip in start menu

But then this happens:

file not found error messages

And then this happens:

xcode error message

Both of these problems defy the laws of computing. The first one is a file copy that failed because the file doesn’t exist, which can’t be true because it’s there when I check just before the copy. The second problem is my program being possessed by something that won’t allow anything to debug it. This is the bigger problem.

I’ve asked on Stack Overflow why this is happening, but I haven’t gotten an answer, even with a 100 reputation bounty. So I submitted a TSI (technical support incident) to Apple DTS (developer technical support), but they’re closed for the holidays. I’ll get a response in 2-3 weeks. During that time, I can’t work on Vindo.

But when I get the problem fixed, I’ll come back to Vindo, and keep working on the redesign. Maybe then someone will read this blog.
