Although this is an old thread (a year, practically to the day since the last post), I too would be very (very!) interested in seeing the source to FH made available, if only to give me a chance to track down a long standing bug that causes FH to hang after an "out of memory" error.

For the record, I'm currently using the Pro version with Windows 10, without (any other!) problems...I guess you could say that's a testament to the quality of the code that it stills runs well, even after so many OS changes :-).
FH Feature Requests / Filehamster support
« Last post by Jac5r on February 29, 2016, 04:12:03 PM »
Ob boy...  no post here since years. 

I bought FH in 2009,  and it's the best program I know.   

My hint to users who have problems,  with W7 imported versions:  Delete it, then delete any directory with MOGWARE in the name.  (Do a search for it!)  Then just re-install FH under W10, and that's it. 

I made the W10 update on a 2015 PC,   that had FH on it under WE7.    After the update,  FH was still there, but when I select preferences,   the program says "can't find a banner", and shuts down controlled. No crash.  So I decided to let it rest a while. As we all know, new Windows versions are full of bugs always, and MS solves those  only  slooooowly.  Sometimes take one year time. Knowing W10 was was a quantum leap,  it is probably still full of massive bugs.

But I gave FH a try again.

It has been almost 8 months now since W10 release.  The W7 imported Version, I deleted that, and re-installed.   And look... it works ok now :))))!!!

I noted,  all updates were made also.   Mogware Update Server is stil running.   Very good:)

I assume, W10 will be continiously improved,  and compatibility for W7 Windows programs will get better over time.
Question to Mogware:  please don't obesolete  FH!   It saved my data so many times.

In case  you have to obsolete it...  can you give us the update files in some from to burn them on CD?  So when I have to, I can re-install later also.

I assume when W10 gets more advanced,  it will install  W7 programs safer.  So it would be a real pity to destroy this nice little program.

Hi. Wish I had seen the recent posts sooner. I started this thread.

I am a HUGE fan of FH. Nothing else like it. Please please please release the source or sell it or something. A more modern version could be a huge hit. Not even at the enterprise level, but for professional home users. Writers. Musicians. People who like to keep track of revisions, but who don't need or want complex versioning systems.

Please feel free to write to me about FileHamster.

Dear Dave,
how can I genrate such control files manually?
Some files are already existing, so I need only a few DocumentInfo control files.
Kind Regards,

Yes please release the source code.

I PAID for the pro version and it has many problems and bugs in Windows 10.  I'm currently searching for an alternative :(

I do apologize for the lack of support on FileHamster.  :(
The product has not been getting release updates like we had hoped and we actually wish we could do more for the community in supporting this tool.

The FileHamster community has been a wonderful group of users and we would like to try and do something for them but time and resources are just not as available as they have been in the past.
We have been considering the possibility of releasing the source code to the community so that any dedicate users with developer skills might be able to continue extending the product.

I'll try to push this initiative through in the coming months (assuming there is still interest in seeing FileHamster source become available to the public).

Sorry to hear you are having troubles...
This error message is quite odd.

This DocumentInfo file is generated by FileHamster so I cannot think of any other application that could be trying to access it.
Could you possibly have two instances of FileHamster running simultaneously?  Maybe if one FileHamster instance is generating this file while the second instance comes along fighting to access the same file at the same moment.  However, we have logic to prevent two instances running simultaneously but maybe they are both getting launched so quickly at startup that they both miss each other in this check.  To verify this simply look at your Task Manager to see if you see two FileHamsters running in the processes tab.

Is this a shared network drive?  If you have two computers (both running FileHamster) then it could be very similar to the above example where one instance could be fighting with another instance in creating the new revision.

The only other thing I can think of is if you have another independent backup program running that might be trying to snag a copy of this FileHamster metafile while FileHamster is still busy trying to create it.  If you do have another backup application installed and running you could try telling that one to ignore these DocumentInfo files as they are really nothing more than simple metafile information (not specifically critical in revision recovery).

If none of these help then I would need to have a lot more information about your configuration to assess any other possibilities.

Good luck and let us know if this helps...

I migrated to Windows 7 and was forced to buy File Hamster version
But since then the following message appears when I handled a file, this occurred for old files only.

The message window:

*Filename: <BackUp Drive>:\<Source Drive>~<File Path>.DocumentInfo
Close any open files that are associated with this asset.
[Repeat] [Cancel] *

Names enclosed in <> describes variables.

Can you give me any support, please.

:-( Uli
