1  Everything eccoMAGIC / Issues, Comments, and Questions / Trying to move software to new computer, can't find LICENSE KEY! PLZ HELP

Title says it all.
 
Trying to install Ecco Pro onto a new computer, and it's asking for a license key, which we don't know how to find, as this is such old software...
 
Please help, how can we extract the license key from our old computer, or is there a file we can copy, etc?
 
Thx.

Okay, so I think I pinpointed the cause of the problem-- the Due Date folder.
 
The choice to delete the Due Date folder from the back up/safe copy was grayed out on the side menu, so I dumped the Due Date folder contents into the Scratch folder.
 
I then deleted 200 items from the Scratch folder, closed and reopened the file.
 
EMMR now shows an additional 200 items free, and I can add new items back into the file.
 
Funny that EMMR didn't show items opening up when I deleted items and folders outside of the Due Date folder. (I understand that there are separate, lower folder limits below the 65,527 total item limit.)
 
Any suggestions on how to clean out/reduce my Due Date folder, but still have the information easily accessible?

Hello All:
 
I am a 25 year user of Ecco.
 
I am running Ecco 4.01 on a Windows 10 machine, without Slack.
 
For the most part, it's been a smooth ride, although across the years I have run into a couple of low memory error messages, which were always resolved by creating new Date folders to auto-assign dates to new items and turning off auto-assign on the old date folders.
 
This time is different.
 
The EM Memory Reporter is showing 65,524 items with 3 free (attached), but that was after deleting a whole bunch of notepads and date folders from a backup/safe file, which should have freed up a lot more items.
 
I have read all the pinned posts about handling the low memory problem, but nothing seems to have helped. (Altho TBH, I didn't completely understand the post on Done folder maintenance).
 
Any suggestions at this point?
 
Don't want to give up on Ecco, but I can't enter new items, which may force my hand.
 
 
Best regards,
RichB
"Ecco Lifer"

6  Everything eccoMAGIC / Issues, Comments, and Questions / Do I have the most recent version of EccoPro EccoProX32 - Installation.msi

Hi,
 
I was a subscriber in the previous incarnation, and also used Ecco Pro extensively in the 90s.
 
Sorry about the developer.  Henk Hagedoorn of Treepad also passed away a couple of years ago.
 
I just installed Ecco Pro X on an XP, to test.  No problem at all, my registration keys still worked.
 
Am I using the most recent version?  The date of the EccoProX32 - Installation.msi file was 12/08/2013.
 
 
Also, I remember working with a Project Manager template.  Is that still available?
 
 
Anyway, I'm looking through the forum now.  Some of my questions might get answered just from some glances at threads.  If you have any useful suggestions or war stories about Ecco, feel free to send them my way.

Hi,
 
I'm revisting ECCO after a looong time away and have been surprised at how many of the old ECCO-related resources have dried up. Fortunately this forum exists and has some essential items in it, but I've not been able to find copies of the manuals (User Manual + Getting Started). I find lots of links here and there, but they're usually to the dead Yahoo group or a deleted dropbox file.
 
Does anyone have a source to these documents, before they apparently evaporate from the internet  Sad ? (Aside: something like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InterPlanetary_File_System seems really useful for these types of materials).
 
Thanks.
Jim

I would like to try EccoMagic -- I am particularly interested in the Ctl-Shift-C feature.  But when I run the downloaded EccoMagic.exe, I get a message the the EccoMagic Trial is DEACTIVATED. And, not surprisingly, the Ctl_Shift-C feature does not work.  What am I doing wrong?  It would be very useful to me if it worked!
