Well, with the environment variable changed, when i do the Fetch News it runs for about a minute and then it throws a python25.dll error message that the microsoft error reporting tool and the closes libprs500 altogether. It looks like it was starting to run and then just dies like that. consistently.

So it works from the command line. What was the exact error message you got from the GUI?

Interesting.
Cause Dilbert does work at the GUI. I was orignally trying to pull The Economist, but figured i might as well just try dibert at the CLI just to make life easy.

Economist at CLI is a mess of recursion limits being reached... it goes on and on and on, i had to interrupt it.

Economist works for me note that the resursion limits are perfectly normal, they're there to prevent web2lrf from fetching the entire internet.

Still errors here. Its the "libprs500.exe has encountered an error and needs to close" message. details are modname: phython25.dll and offset is 00094284, if that means anything at all.

no worries. i think most windows users expect a certain amount of unexplained phenomena, to be honest.

thanks for the help and the command line info, which will be a good workaround.

Also wanted to thank you, Kovid

This software helped me to decide to go ahead and get the Sony. I had been planning to get the Gen3, but was reading an awful lot of complaints about technical problems with the unit. Once I found out that the Sony accepted SD (not just MemStick) and that there was an excellent 3rd party tool to use it, that helped me decide to go for it.

I'm afraid that I've added a couple minor tickets to your list regarding tags, but I wanted to make sure you knew I wasn't just complaining. It really is an excellent tool, even if those tickets are never addressed.

Kati

Yes, I'm a new 505 owner and it was the ability to convert HTML and LIT for the Reader with libprs500 that convinced me this was the one to go with. Thank you, Kovid
