Object reference not set to an instance of an object again
« on: December 29, 2015, 01:43:21 AM »
This is an odd one.  I'm running version 855 on two different machines (both W10).  One is updating fine every two hours, but the other suddenly started reporting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" on 24 December and hasn't successfully updated since.   They're both watching the same group, so not sure what could suddenly have decided to change on only one of the platforms a few days ago.

That's just creepy. 

So you've got two machines, running the same OS and the same version of PGO, downloading the same group, connected to the same internet connection?

And one of them is erroring? 

The usual reason for the "Object" error is that PGO cannot access the group for some reason  (firewall, internet connection, etc).

But that surely cannot be the case for you.

There ought to be more information in the Windows Event Viewer.

If you start the Event Viewer and choose Windows--> Applications there ought to be an error for PG Offline.

If you choose the PGO error event from the list you will get a pop-up window which has a Copy option.

If you could copy the data and send it to me we might get more of a clue as to what's going on.

Thanks,

 Wilson.

Thanks, Wilson - one thing I have already in place is the traffic log that we set up a month or so ago, which is still running.  This section shows the data for the last successful connection (5.46) and the first failure (7.46).  I notice that at 7.46 the error ""User does not have READ permission for MESSAGE" appears, which is kind of weird, as I clearly still do:

OK have a look at the last successful message:

5:46:21 PM Request: http://groups.yahoo.com/api/v1/groups/Siddeley/messages?start=0&count=1&sortOrder=desc&direction=-1&chrome=raw
5:46:21 PM HTTP status: OK

and then the first failed message:

7:46:21 PM Request: http://groups.yahoo.com/api/v1/groups/Siddeley/messages?start=0&count=1&sortOrder=desc&direction=-1&chrome=raw
7:46:21 PM HTTP status: TemporaryRedirect


We have had an issue with the Files sections of some groups being unavailable due to redirects.

We fixed this in an as yet unreleased version (r859).

What it doesn't explain is how the other machine is still able to get messages when this one can't.

What happens when you try to login to your group using a browser?

Browser access is perfectly fine on this machine using the same login, and msgs are still being delivered by e-mail.  Odd!

Neither machine has been rebooted in a while so I may try that on my machine shortly, in case it makes any difference ...

A "go figure" moment - rebooting and refreshing and the message download worked this time!  I notice that attachment downloads are failing, though - that has happened in recent days too:
