Can't find the installer for 4.1 b. The download page only lists the 4.0.1 installer.

We're working on the problem.

In case you don't want to wait, you can install 4.0.1 and update that to 4.1.0 beta 1 by issuing the following command at the prompt in your Servoy installation directory:
Code: Select all
java -jar servoy_updater.jar -beta

Sandor,

I ran the command line you specified, but it didn't seem to do anything as far as updates. Note that running the command line you specified attempted to update Servoy from build 628 to 640 (version 4.1.0?):

C:\Program Files\Servoy>java -jar servoy_updater.jar -beta
Current Servoy version 628
Checking for new Servoy version
Working in directory: C:\Program Files\Servoy
Including beta notifies
Loading version info...
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (com.servoy.j2db.util.Debug).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
New version available 640

<html><body><br>Servoy 4.1.0 beta 1 version<br><br>NOTE: ALWAYS make a backup of
your Servoy directory and your databases before usage.<br><br><br><a target="_B
LANK" href="http://www.servoy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11333">Build informa
tion</a></body></html>

Downloading...
Done, downloading - 640
Done, Servoy can be started


When I ran Servoy and checked the updated version, it was still at 4.0.1 build 628. The 'servoy.exe' file appears not to have changed (no time/date stamp for today).

I hope this helps.

I ran the command line a second time, and the indication is that it is at build 640:

Code: Select all
C:\Program Files\Servoy>java -jar servoy_updater.jar -beta
Current Servoy version 640
Checking for new Servoy version
Working in directory: C:\Program Files\Servoy
Including beta notifies
Loading version info...
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (com.servoy.j2db.util.Debug).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
No update found, if you want beta versions start with option: -beta
Done, Servoy can be started


When I launch Servoy developer, the splash sreen shows as version 4.0.1. And, when I go to 'Help -> About Servoy Developer', it still shows as version 4.0.1 build 628, and the 'servoy.exe' file still shows an old time/date stamp.

I am running 32-bit Windows Vista Ultimate with Service Pack 1.

Can you provide an example of how to set the rollOverImage property of a button/label?

And do I understand that this will also work on elements currently on a form?

Thanks

This seems to suggest the update itself succeeded yet Eclipse is still working with a cached version of the old plugins. For some reason the updater didn't clear the cache.
If I am correct, the problem can be solved by issuing the following command at the command prompt:

Code: Select all
cd <servoy install dir>/developer
servoy -clean

This will launch Servoy Developer with a clean cache. Next, please verify that the plug-ins are all at build 640 by doing the following:
1. click Help -> "About Servoy Developer"
2. a pop-up window will open
3. click the Servoy logo
4. another pop-up window will open
5. click "Plug-in Details"
6. yet another pop-up window will open

The latter window lists the seven Servoy plug-ins. They should all be at version 4.1.0.640.

In retrospect, the problem probably was caused by a pre-4.0 final servoy_updater.jar .

Since the updater can't update itself, this problem can only be prevented from happening again by manually replacing the updater. Therefore, please replace it by this one.

I now have Servoy version 4.1.0 b1 up and running with the proper version number on the plug-ins as well.

Thanks for all your help, Sandor!
