after upgrade 4.2.1, the UMS won't start , even clean instal

Post by hawkeye9628 » Mon Nov 03, 2014 12:49 pm

I've been using this UMS for many yrs with my PS3 ( since PS3 media server) , so I know this program well, but after the most update "clean" install.. the program won't start . I am using windows 8.1 pro with core i7 CPU and ASUS motherboard, and I am from computer industry ,so when I say its nothing wrong with my hardware, I am sure its the program problem, once I install back to 4.2.0 , everything back to normal ..I appreciated the developer for doing all this free for us, but still I like to point out this most recent version , somehow wasn't really that smooth for windows 8.1 pro..if you get chance reading this , I hope you can have another good update soon.. thanks... btw anyone having the same problem like mine?

The same happened for me. Going back to 4.1.0 solved the problem.

Is d:\usa directory being treaten as uniceode value? (\u....) ? :)

On 4.2.1 debug log produces following exception:

Re: after upgrade 4.2.2 the UMS won't start , even clean ins

Post by hawkeye9628 » Mon Nov 17, 2014 10:03 pm

Guess what i am brave enough , to upgrade to 4.2.2, ( which i have problem starting the program in 4.2.1) , my system is window 8.1 pro, latest 32 bit java 7 ..working fine with 4.2.0... but once i install 4.2.1 and 4.2.2, the UMS won't start... very strange... i am sure i am not the only one here.. UMS developer , please look at this issue. lot of windows 8.1 pro user out there.. Btw i am from computer industry , my hardware ASUS board, core i7 , latest stuff..always update drivers .. and once i install back to 4.2.0 , then problem solved, so it your program problem.. please take a look at this post... thanks, really appreciated.

hawkeye9628 - do you get the same error as zenon?
SOmething like:

Code: Select all

 java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Less than 4 hex digits in unicode value: '\usa' due to end of CharSequence
   at org.apache.commons.lang3.text.translate.UnicodeUnescaper.translate(UnicodeUnescaper.java:60) ~[ums.jar:4.2.1]

That is on our radar. Quick fix:
1) rename c:\\uxyz to c:\\xyz
We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code.

Yep :). Here's a temporary patch for 4.2.2 that should fix it. Remember to remove the patch at the next UMS release.

Figured I'd jump in as well - same problem, probably same fix...
changing the directory name makes it start.
4.20 is the last version I can use
