Hi Geoff

Managed to edit file with test (final file size e 1 kB)

However this did not resolve issue.

Noticed file reverted back to 0kB after rerun of installer.
Should I modify it again before changing the InstallScrpt101.txt or leave at 0kB

I'm assuming you are just rerunning the Installer without downloading it again

Just "comment" it out in the script as previously described

Yes I am rerunning installer each time.

Tried commenting out InstallScript101 both with FreshInstall.dat edited with "test" (file size 1kB) and FreshInstall.dat as normal (file size 0kB)

But still failing to install.

Tried again but along with renaming AutoStart again.

Still failed to install.

Hi Geoff

I have downloaded MyStuff installer offline

I have unzipped and run the exe file.

It creates an offline build folder in my documents and settings with a whole host of files.

On your webpage under To use MyStuffInstaller(Offline).zip, point 4 says perform a normal MyStuff installation.

How do I actually run the MyStuff installation I can't see another obvious exe file and I am not presented bwith the quirky MyStuff install window as normal.

I don't know how to proceed.

Did you do step 3 (Run Setup.exe) - this should display the MyStuff logo

I have run setup.exe and then MyStuff install.

However I did get numerous file failed to copy notifications.

I have copied the log to notepad but it's massive.

I can post if you require.

Edit

Toppy had reverted to constant reboot cycle

I then checked toppy program files

10 files have been installed in Auto Start

1. seccache UK File size 0kB
2. Extend v1.7
3. Font Manager 10d
4. FwLoad B3.3
5. EIT Sub ( Game) v0.y
6. EPG2MEI v0.96
7. MhegOnOff. File size 0kB
8 My info B5.6
9. MyStuff 6.6
10 PruneEPG 1.0

6 files in Utilities

1 Channel Organiser. File size 0kB
2. Tap Commander 1.34
3. Signal Monitor 0.53
4. FwLoad B3,3
5. fsCheck 1.5
6. HDD Info V2.4b

Comments
I noticed Channel Organiser doesn't have any date against it it's marked --/--, In my original post I mentioned that this file was 0 bytes long.and it remains so after this latest installation.

Also FwLoad is in Auto Start and Utilities folders.

Also when I was transferring my recordings across using topfHDRW there was one strange looking file in with the recordings labelled Fire Bird, I notice that is the Author of HDD Info

Empty tap files in autostart are bound to cause problems.

Yes as I've found out.

I've sent Geoff my install log hopefully he'll find the issue.

I can't see anything wrong in the log apart from that it abruptly stops without showing any reason why (perhaps not all text was copied?).

As this is using the original installer (albeit with a modified script) that performs a lot of error checking, I can only assume that there is a hardware issue with the USB connection and/or the toppy disk is flaky.

It has however copied successfully copied several files onto the toppy (including MyStuff.tap)
I suggest you try GCBMyStuffInstaller again to complete the installation - just run it using option 1 (don't mess around with the current files on the disk). Also no need to reinstate the script file that you modified.

When complete, please post it's log (the one whose name indicates it is for the forum) in this thread

Geoff
Edit: Just read your subsequent posts and see the comments about 0 length files. This confirms that there is an issue with the USB transfer.
What length is your USB cable?

Just received the complete log my email.

This shows that it managed to copy several files and that several files also failed.

The implication is that the USB connection is iffy (or the toppy disk).

What length is the USB cable?
Do you have another one you can try?

Hi Geoff

The usb cable is 1.5m long, I do have another one but it's 2.1m long.

I could try a different usb port on my laptop.

Try the other one and in a different port.

I was really worried that you might have a long cable or a daisy chained one (USB allows up to 5m)
