FEBE 4.0.4p Hangs and will not run again

Postby wahissa54 » Wed May 23, 2007 10:56 am

I'm running into a problem with FEBE appearing to hang when I run it the first time. By this I mean it's still running after an hour. I'm using a Dell Optiplex with a Core 2 Duo @3GHz with 1GB RAM. I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.3 and FEBE 4.0.4p.

When I ran FEBE the first time, I get a window that says profile{default}.fbu has been created successfully, but I do not get the detailed results shown on the sample screen shot. When I cancel the backup, I unable to launch another backup. Additionally, I have tried uninstalling FEBE and reinstalling, but I am still unable to run a backup.

Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.

Walt, Let's try this:
  1. Install the latest version (FEBE 5.0 RC1)
  2. Clear FEBE options (FEBE Options > Debug > Clear FEBE preferences).
  3. Reenter "Backup destination directory"
  4. Select "Full profile" backup option
  5. Turn on Debug mode (FEBE Options > Debug)
  6. Run backup. Note any error messages in the DOS box.
  7. Open Error Console (Tools > Error Console) and note any FEBE errors.
  8. Post your findings here.

After 5.0 RC1

Postby wahissa54 » Thu May 24, 2007 7:20 am

Here's the Results:

Items processed: 2 total (Created in: C:\CD Upload)

Extensions processed: (1 total) - indicates a user disabled extension.
1. FEBE GUID {4BBDD651-70CF-4821-84F8-2B918CF89CA3}

Profile backed up to: profile{default}.fbu


I have 30 extentions and 1 theme currently loaded. Shouldn't I be seeing all 30 extentions listed?

Thanks for the help.

When you select a "Full profile" only one backup file is created. In this case the "profile{default}.fbu". The other file you see on the results report is from checking the "Include a copy of FEBE with backup" option.

Since you got the results report, FEBE must be completing the backup. Now we need to figure out which extension, theme, or other is causing the hang-up.

Try selecting everything with a selective backup. Leave the debug option on. Run the backup and watch each DOS window for errors. There will be a DOS window displayed for each item processed.

Make sure you delete the tmp directory before running the backup (FEBE Options > Debug > "Delete tmp directory").

Well, it appears that all is working as it should :D . Did you verify that the backed up items are indeed in your backup destination directory (C:\CD Upload)?

Be sure to turn off debug mode for normal operation.

As for those warnings:
2 warning(s) encountered.
Could not backup userChrome!
Could not backup userContent!

See this FAQ item.

Many, many thanks for all the help. I'm really glad to get this figured out. I've got 3 laptops and 4 desktops to keep sync'd and this will make life much easier.

THANKS again for a great extension.
