1  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!

I have been using EccoPro since 1994 (on my first Windows machine!).    I am currently on Windows 10 and using v 4.01 of EccoPro.    Several months ago I began having a problem loading Ecco but could open it if I right-clicked on it and used "run as administrator."    Now even that won't work - when I try to open Ecco it prompts me for my file password, but then the EccoPro screen is just black.   I've uninstalled, rebooted, re-installed a few times with no success.    
 
My first question is, is there a newer version past 4.01?    I tried to download the EccoPro file (which may be v.4.544?) from this website but get an error message that says "RESTRICTED CONTENT  Governmental regulations prohibit the viewing of this page from the IP address . . . "   But I'm not on a government or business computer, so I'm now sure why this download won't work.
 
Second question, when my v.4.01 installs it goes into the CTonguerogram Files (x86) directory, not directly into Program Files.   I tried installing it to CTonguerogram Files but that did not work either.   Is x86 the correct directory?
 
Third question, if my v.4.01 is the latest (or no one can help me download the Ecco file from this website), then can anyone help me get Ecco back?    I'm dying without it; my whole (work) life is in that file!
 
P.S.    Ecco still works okay on my laptop, which is also Windows 10, so I'm not sure what happened in recent months on the desktop.   Could be that my laptop has not installed all of the recent Windows updates.

Is there a way to block the Scratch notepad from putting every new item at the top of the list? For some .ECO folders a new item stays where I put it in the list. For other .ECO folders new items always get moved to the top of the list. I have not been able to determine what settings are affecting this action.
 
I have tried setting persistent sort to none, removing and adding columns but nothing works. The other funny thing is that some of my .ECO folders were working the way I want and then suddenly new items would be moved. I have no recollection of changing anything.
 
Nicholas

Good news, I found a solution posted by David Goldbrenner on Facebook:
------------------
My Win 10 installation just upgraded to the latest version, and I started getting the "Unhandled Registry Error (CFO)". The problem seems to be that Ecco is unable to get access to required registry keys, probably due to some security changes. I fixed it as follows:
1. I found the executable, ecco32.exe, in C:\program files\ecco pro
2. Right click > Properties
3. Compatibility tab
4. Click "Change Settings for All users"
5. Check "Run this program as an administrator"
------------------
Thank you David. It was a life saver. Appreciated.
