Re: Publishing woes

Yes. Screensavers require different keys.

When you select a system screensaver, the system chooses the first screensaver that matches that key. So if there are multiple screensavers signed with the same key the user can't select between them.

And if you have a public screensaver and any of your apps have a private screensaver, you have to rekey. I don't know whether if you only use private screensavers if they need different keys. Kevin?

It's not an issue for private screensavers, since the local ShowScreenSaver function is called to launch those. At least it hasn't been an issue in my apps, and I always assign a different "roRegistrySection" name to each channel based on the name of that channel, so they won't step on each other. If you use a generic name like "Configuration" like the SDK apps, I can see where it could get a bit sticky...

Re: Publishing woes

so out of nowhere after it has been working now im getting these crazy issues

Current Function:
017: Function RegWrite(key, val, section=invalid)
018: if section = invalid then section = "Default"
019: sec = CreateObject("roRegistrySection", section)
020: sec.Write(key, val)
021: sec.Flush() 'commit it
022: End Function
/tmp/plugin/PEAAAAjZDDuq/pkg:/source/generalUtils.brs(20): runtime error 18: Typ
e Mismatch

020: sec.Write(key, val)


I have never touched this BRS pages settings

I have read the SDK and see no reference to this, its why the channel is not showing up, it was working when i went to work today i come home turn it on and even my original is doing this....

i would like to also know more about this rekeying...

Re: Publishing woes

Check that key and value are both strings. It doesn't look like it has anything to do with what package signing key you are using (unrelated to the variable name key in this code snippet).

Re: Publishing woes

Thanks i am looking at it now, and i see it says the token is invalid....

again i never touched anything and now even the original isn't working....

could it be an issue of needing to "clean up" teh registry?

I did a Reg delet and i am wondering if that caused this...

how can we do a complete clean up of the registry?

Re: Publishing woes

Something like this should work to delete everything in your registry:

myreg = CreateObject("roRegistry")
reglist = myreg.GetSectionList()
for each sect in reglist
myreg.Delete(sect)
end for

I haven't tried it, so caveat emptor.

That's great news! Glad it's something you can address without requiring a code update. Good luck!
