Re:Hourly Chime? 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
Oh, I already did that before my last reply to you!

I think the problem might be that the code still says "Program Files" not "Program Files (86)", so it's not finding the .wav?

(I tried opening the .lua file with Notepad and changing the target from "Program Files" to "Program Files (86)" but notepad would not let me keep the changes unless I renamed it to "chime.lua.txt".)

I hope I'm explaining the problem correctly!

I change the code to update the folder path.
But if you can't edit the code then I suppose that you can't delete the file...? If this is true then try first to close Rainlendar2. Or verify the UAC (user account control) which maybe is blocking the access to the file.

Good morning!

I substituted your revised script (thank you!) but unfortunately it didn't make any difference. Still no hourly chime. [sigh]

I'm really baffled now, and I hope you (or another reader) still have some tricks up your sleeve!

Re:Hourly Chime? ***UPDATE!*** 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
SUCCESS!!

Due to something totally unrelated, I rebooted my PC this morning. When 12 noon rolled around I heard my first hourly chime! Yayyy!

It worked, it worked!

Jorge, I can't thank you enough! I guess your script needed a kick in the reboot to get started and you were right on the money. Thanks again, you made me one happy guy!

Good to hear that!
Did you heard it more than once?

Maybe I forget to mention to refresh or restart Rainlendar to make the app read again the file. Rebooting is more or less the same.

(I hope you change that mechanical gong I send to you as the chime )

Hi Jorge!

Maybe I started to celebrate a little too soon...

The chime only sounded once so far at 12 Noon.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there something we can tweak in your script?

Thanks for continuing to help me!

ps...Oh yes, I changed the chime wav to my favorite.
I'll try attaching it in case you might want to use it too!
