Re: revDeleteFolder not working on Windows Server 6.5.1-6.6.

I got a response on the bug report - apparently revDeleteFolder is part of the IDE and is not actually supported on server. I have mentioned that they should update the documentation to reflect that. The solution they provided was copying the script for revDeleteFolder out of toolset\revlibrary.rev ...

Re: revDeleteFolder not working on Windows Server 6.5.1-6.6.

check the next post from me in this thread for RunRev's answer on the bug report and a solution - I am deleting this since it had an overly complicated solution to the problem that I came up with.

Re: How do openXXX messages work on server?

Oh yeah, I know that. Mainly I was just wondering why these are marked as supported on server when I can't find any use for them, or any effect they have. Also, I am always trying to find any way that I can write code on the desktop (with a debugger), have it work there, and paste it directly over t...

How do openXXX messages work on server?

I noticed that the openStack & openCard messages show in the dictionary as supported on server, but I am not sure what they are supposed to do there. My assumption was that since server doesn't have stacks or cards that one (maybe both?) of these message might get sent when a script was opened. This...

Re: revDeleteFolder not working on Windows Server 6.5.1

Looks like it behaves the same in 6.6.1, which is the newest version I can get from the store. Anyone know if there is a 6.6.2 version of commercial available - I can't get it from the store , but the store has often been terrible about keeping up with the latest releases on server. Edited to add: I...

Re: revDeleteFolder not working on Windows Server 6.5.1

I this particular case I know that the folder is empty, so I don't think it's that. And it turns out it *does* work with "delete folder <folderPath>", so it can't be permissions. here is the code with diagnostics: <?lc create folder "temp/" put "temp/" into targetFolder revDeleteFolder targetfolder ...

Re: revDeleteFolder not working on Windows Server 6.5.1

I tried that, but get the same error, with no output from the other two commands following the revDeleteFolder line.

Near as I can tell execution is halting when it gets to revDeleteFolder.

I suppose I should probably upgrade the server machine to the latest version of Server and see if that helps.

Re: Questions about Server

As the post above mentioned, you would not need to install server to do this - you can just create your application as a standalone and use cron to execute is on a schedule (or Windows Scheduler, or whatever for the platform you are running on). Server is an add-in for Apache or other web servers th...

Open Source On-Rev client and server debug

Since On-Rev has not actually supported the client for a long time - it doesn't work at all with On-Rev since the server upgrades and repeated requests to support have just resulted in responses of "We will announce it to everyone when it works" - can RunRev just add "debugger" error mode to all of ...

Re: Practical Guidelines "When" To Post

I tend to post when I have exhausted all my ideas and need an answer immediately. I do this because immediately after posting I usually manage to realize that I was doing something dumb, thereby solving the problem.

Re: The field object (limitations)

This would be a great fix to have - if nothing else it will prevent me from getting confused when I look at variable watcher and see a variable that appears to be empty, when it's really just a very, very long line.

Given how easily I get confused this will be a big win!

Re: Browser plugin

This is a bit different. The old plug-in allowed you to execute a stack within a browser - basically no different than having it execute on the desktop (except that I was never able to get font stuff to look right...) What's being asked for here is a plug-in that would allow a browser to interpret a...

Re: LiveCode Server : list of web hosting services

I am hoping that server is going to get more attention in the near future. I worry that currently it's not getting the same attention that desktop and mobile (esp. mobile) are. I keep finding bugs and inconsistencies between the server engine and the desktop engine that make it difficult to code, si...

Re: LiveCode IDE for IPad?

Oh, and to answer your licensing question - as far as I know the commercial license allows you to have multiple copies around, on whatever platforms you want, so long as only 1 instance is in use simultaneously per license. And of course, as long as you aren't working with protected stacks the commu...
