404 error for all download and changing default deck

Post by sunkized »

Hi. I have two issues. Whenever I launch OT it wants to update/reinstall (specifically the tod it seems). When I try to go to the site to reinstall on the other hand every link is returning a 404 error message.

I also wanted to know if it's possible to change the default deck? I've used the program for a long while with breaks in between and all my old spreads seem to default to a deck I never use.

Thank you!

I absolutely wanted to apologize. I've been busy with work and have only been able to update this thread now. It seems that the 404 error for all downloads is due to me following (having bookmarked) an obsolete version of the download page (I added a slash at the end). So that situation has successfully been resolved!

Hi Sunkized,

As far as the reinstall of ToD is concerned, this is a (somewhat annoying) "feature" of Windows Installer. It sometimes decides that it should "repair" the program if it doesn't find everything where it originally installed it, which of course will happen if you have reorganized your decks. Even though I have configured the installation not to behave in this way it sometimes does anyway. Probably the easiest thing is just to leave the Tarot of Dreams where it was originally installed.

I am looking forward to the summer when I am going to have time to start on the next big upgrade to Orphalese. One of the things I am planning at the same time is to switch from using Windows Installer to using another installation program that I have come across and I am very impressed with, but I am afraid for the time being we will just have to live with the Windows one. Hope this is not too much of a problem!

Best regards
Richard

Hi Richard. I wanted to confirm that uninstalling and reinstalling with the latest setup file did resolve this completely! Thank you!

Now all I have left as a 'bug' is that any spread that I create from scratch gives me an error message with "index out of bounds" whenever I try to add a card. But I've circumvented the issue by duplicating another spread in the spread folder and modifying it.

Looking forward to the next update! And as always, I appreciate all the work being put in the application.

Glad that worked! I have seen the spread error before. It is a bug in the design of the Spread Wizard really. The thing is you have to add a deck BEFORE you add any cards, otherwise you get that error. In other words the "Add Card" button should be unavailable until at least one deck has been added. I should really get around to fixing it, but I am glad you found a workaround in the meantime.
