sad tcaffeine not using minutes from the .ini file
« Thread started on: Nov 30th, 2017, 8:34pm »

Hi and thank you for having developed caffeine and tcaffeine!
Great idea, and should help a lot!

Even though, I have found a little problem in tcaffeine:
If I change the 'minutes' for a targeted entry, the change is not permanent. After the next startup of tcaffeine, the time will always be set to 15 minutes, no matter what I have set before.

I have checked where the entries are stored, and I have found the tcaffeine.ini file.
Actually, after a change of the minutes, the change will be written to the .ini file, like
    <TARGET><TITLE><whatever it is><MINS><new value><KEY>0
This looks perfectly ok.

But when I start tcaffeine next time, it will not use the value from the .ini file, but '15' instead.
When I then open the setup editor and close it again, it will write the currently shown values back to the .ini file, putting in <MINS>15.

Any help, so that I can reduce the keep-alive interval to something like 5 minutes?

Thanks a lot!

Whoops, how did I not spot that? The value in the ini file is "mins", but the app looks for the value named "minutes" to load in again.

Sorry about that, and good troubleshooting, saving me some time. That doesn't seem quite right, I already cost you time and effort by running into this problem, so I ought to have done all the legwork in resolving it...

If you go back to the web site, there's a fixed exe uploaded there now, thanks.
