After several weeks of hard work I'm happy to publish SETIspirit v2.0.0 with two new major features: Workunit Analysis Results can now be stored and displayed in the analysis results window and the new Workunit Analysis Monitor simultaneously shows the current analysis results for slot 0 - 9.

There are more improvements also for Non- SETI@home Projects.

My special thanks for the continued quality control and the active support of the further development of the SETIspirit application applies to Cameron Smith. Thank you very much, Cameron!

Windows 8.1 is complaining about the Sky Map Extension Pack and refuses to run the installation of the extension pack.

Download size is 30,347 KB (30.347 MB) as compared to your listing of 29.6 MB for the file. File sizes do not agree.

29.6 equals 30310.4kb, so that file should be fine.

Oh, that's wonderful that it runs on your system!

However the skymap does NOT download or run on my windows 8.1 x64 system. I don't pretend to know why, just reporting it.

Perhaps Dirk could check the source and see if it is supposed to be compatible with Win 8.

Windows 8.x certainly does have plenty of compatibility problems where as Windows 7 doesn't.

Cheers.

Sky Map Extension Pack Download fails on Windows 8.x Hosts
Sky Map Extension Pack compatibility with Windows 8.x

Hi,

first of all thanks for your feedback. The Sky Map Extension Pack is fully compatible with Windows 8, it includes sky map images (*.jgp/*.gif), text files (*.txt) and a single audio file (skymapsound.mp3) only (448 files in 3 folders).

The download and installation of the Sky Map Extension Pack on all my Windows 8.x hosts was passed successfully.

This problem might be caused by the browser, browser plugin or antivirus software installed on your system.

If you are using the Internet Explorer browser with enabled SmartScreen Filter a warning appears after the Sky Map Extension Pack is downloaded ("SkyMapExtPack.exe is not commonly downloaded and could damage your computer"). You can safely ignore this message and select action (instead of delete or show downloads) then click more options (instead of delete program or don't execute program) and at last selecting still run program for a successfull download and installation of the Sky Map Extension Pack on Windows 8 hosts (the messages can vary as I have translated it from German).

I recommend to use Firefox or other browsers for downloading the Sky Map Extension Pack as the Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter can be very confusing.

Alternatively, you can download the Sky Map Extension Pack as a zip file here...

http://www.setispirit.de/skymaps.zip

and extract the files in the SETIspirit program folder (on Windows 8.1 x64 Hosts: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SETIspirit").

Please reply with a short feedback here, if these hints have solved the reported problem.
Thanks!

Best regards,
Dirk

Loaded onto Win 8.1 without problem.

Any chance you could at some time enable larger type. It is hard to read with the small type.

Thanks for your feedback!

The switch to a larger font requires a full rebuild of the GUI, but I will consider how to improve the representation in later releases.

Thanks, and no rush on my account. I just thought it might make it a bit easier to read.
