    No doubt this is an "I am an *****" issue, but I thought I would risk exposure and reach out for help. After I unzip Diddlebug 2.90.b.3 the files are there, but when I click on them I get a message telling me that the file does not exist. This happens on all the files including the plugins. Am I missing something obvious? Any help would be appreciated as I can really use this program.

    Thanks

    For the record, I have searched the Diddlebug program extensively both here, and the web.

    WOW a 2.6 year old thread. Now there is a search!

    I use DiddleBug, installed it on my 650 and then on my current 700P. I will look when I get home to see what I did. One thought until then --- you are actually completing the unzip process by sending them to a folder -- and not just clicking on them in the initial unzip screen?


    EDIT: As Christina says below, I can click on any file in the unzip window of presented files and up pops my Palm QuickInstall Box where I can select the user and whether I want the file to go to internal memory or the SD card on the next hotsync.

    I am using WinZip -- what unzip program are you using? If the direct from the unzip box is not working for you -- try doing the complete unzip to a file folder and then try clicking on the desired files from there.

    I load apps directly from the zip files into Quick Install all the time without extracting them first. I don't think that makes a difference...

    Correct, but I remember one of my installs on the 700P balking at this and that I did have to fully extract them to a folder on my hard drive. Don't remember if it was DiddleBug or not. . . . .

    HOLY COW THIS IS AN OLD THREAD!
    But, I would be encouraged to hear if Diddlebug was completely working.
    I loved this program...very easy to use and extremely intuitive.

    I stopped using it for some reason that I can't remember...hmmm...maybe I need to look at it again.

    I think it had something to do with the alarm function...Vibrate support maybe?

    Give it a shot, if you run into any issues, list them here and prompt me to look back to this thread with a PM and I will see if I can recreate them on my 700P. I have not tried the alarm or vibrate functions -- I just use it for quick notes ans such.

    Cheers, Perry.

    I know this is an *old* thread, but this is the one and only ongoing, seemingly unsolvable issue for my 700P. I rely very heavily on Diddlebug alarms for my work. And there are times when I really need just the vibrate instead of sound. Unfortunately, the vibrate mode does not work with Diddlebug on the 700P.

    However, if Toysoft's "koolSounds" app is installed, it enables vibrate to work with Diddlebug. Unfortunately, this interferes with Pocket Tunes! If a Diddlebug alarm goes off with KoolSounds enabled, and Pocket Tunes is playing a song or podcast, PT reverts back to the *start* of the song or podcast. This can be quite annoying if in the middle of a long podcast or lecture.

    After months of emails with both PT and Toysoft developers, nothing has been fixed. Any other workarounds, or other apps, would be most appreciated. I tried BugMe, but it's a huge app and it just doesn't work as well as Diddlebug...

    I recommend Butler and its Attention Grabber function.

    Thanks... I'm a long time user of Butler, and unfortunately, enabling the attention grabber doesn't seem to affect diddlebug. But you did give me an idea... the developer of Butler is great, and perhaps I will email him for a fix or suggestion.

    Rob worked with CESD to enable the Attention Grabber for DateBk5/6 alarms; I'm not sure whether it'll be easier or harder to do the same thing for an open source app like DiddleBug. I wonder how many folks are even still using it?
