I need Help ! / Re: New PC after crash problems

Hi Dennis,

      All Personal Groupware products currently have a manual registration facility.

     In the program please choose:

     Help(menu option)--> Product Registration--> Get Unique Code

     This displays a unique code which you should copy using CTRL + C and then please paste
    the code into an email and send it to me.

     I will send you a licence key which you copy and paste into PGO from Help--> Product Registration--> Validate Licence

When you restart PGO it will be registered.

Double check your Master Login details.

Also check that you can login to the Yahoo site using your browser and it doesn't ask you for any strange verification stuff.

Do you still have the test login details I sent you for evildrome_shadow?  You could try those details in your Master Login as a test.

BTW... we've known each other for 15+ years... you can just email me you know!

(1) How do I make trial version PGOffline my registered copy?
(2) Master LOGIN returns message - Account not known. Have checked: Yahoo accepts user name and password

 Old files are ignored.  Only new files are downloaded.

 The program must however download the list of files so that it can differentiate new from old.

 This happens when you press the "List" button.

 "Show only new" lists only folders which contain new or changed file.


I need Help ! / Downloading Files
« Last post by BigGuy on November 15, 2018, 01:08:34 PM »
After pressing "List" in the dialog for downloading a group's files, it shows a list of what appear to be the YG "folders" containing downloadable files.  i.e.  It shows a list of folder names in the form of <foldernamehere> and sub-folders if any for each folder.

There is a checkmark box on the dialog to "Show only new."  But this does not seem to have any effect, perhaps since the dialog is not displaying individual files, but only folders.  And folders may contain a mix of new files and files that have already been downloaded.

So it appears to me that there is no way to download only new files and that in order to update the downloaded files, you must redownload all files in the group and it replaces any existing files.

Can you shed any light on this?  Thanks!

The request from PGO and the response from Yahoo are asynchronous.

PGO will report that it has made all the necessary requests regardless of the response from Yahoo.

Regarding PGO reporting that you already have the files, have you looked in the PGO data folder?

File--> Open data folder

Probably not related but I also noticed that in downloading, the report of "Listing complete." is (correction) *sometimes*1 entry before it actually prints the final file.

3:03:25 PM Discovered file FIG 3-10-16.jpg in directory <High-Key Low-Key>, but it already exists
Listing complete.
3:03:25 PM Discovered file FIG 3-10-14.jpg in directory <High-Key Low-Key>, but it already exists

Sometimes it is right, sometimes it is afterwards.

I checked the "Parent Folder" and it is correct. I haven't touch the RegExp panel -- curious if there is a way to make sure these are set to default -- but I don't think that is the problem because:

When I tell the program to Download Group files the log scrolls through listing the Group's files. The relevant bit is here:

3:07:36 PM Discovered file Sample in directory <Programs>, but it already exists
3:07:36 PM Discovered file in directory <Utilities>
3:07:36 PM Discovered file RS485 Frame Builder in directory <Utilities>, but it already exists

Note that does not already exist, but it and any other non-existing files are not added to the Group download dialog box. All I get is a list of folders, but no files are added and of course nothing can get downloaded. It doesn't matter which Group I try this on  :o

File is here:

Fixed:  Swap from SSL to TLS 1.2

Reason: Yahoo changed from SSL to TLS 1.2

Vista users please note that TLS is not supported by Vista and this is therefore the end of the line for PGO & Vista :(

Hi Chris,

 Short answer... yes.

 I'm not that familiar with internal structure.

 Do they permit / facilitate the export of messages?

 If so I think it wouldn't be much of a job to write an import module that would import a export of messages.

 Going into and retrieving the messages would be another proposition entirely.

A few pessimistic souls have insisted / voted to move some Yahoo groups I am a member of to Groups IO and I am wondering if PG Offline will ever support doing a similar job with Groups IO databases in the future? Thanks for an excellent and well supported piece of software!

Chris Wilson.
