The session alarm seems a bit buggy, I'll have a play see what's going on.

Does anyone else have problems? Does it sound at your timezone session?

Hi FiatFap,

Do you think you can add 2 more spaces for different email addresses

Cheers.

Interesting error; why is there a [1] in the download string, i.e. FXNewsAlert_a2.3[1].exe? Is there another instance deep within the bowels of your computer?

Can you uninstall any instance of FX News Alert by using either Control Panel or I prefer CCleaner (it's quicker), then try installing the previous version (v2.2) to see if you get the same error message.

Also, could you try using install directory [Crogram Files] to see if that helps.

If it works then try re-installing v2.3 and if error appears then i have corrupted the latest build somewhere, somehow.

Thanks for your bug report.

Edit: Forgot to ask, what system are you running, Vista 32-bit or 64-bit, for example?

Thanks for the link, I tried it but I prefer my sexy GUI, but I would say that...I'm biased

You're welcome,

After unstallation the old version and re-install the old version and make an update the problem was solve.

I'm running Windows XP Pro

I don't understand where the upcomming news for today are. The next one is 21:45 tonight, but what about the 'Existing Home Sales' @ 16:00?

Have you set the timezone correctly?

After each update, you have to check timezone setting.

Glad you got it working, let's put it down to an anomaly in Windows.

Note: The value of the app was shown earlier when FF had locked out users with high server load.

Home sales is in 30min @ 15:00 GMT, which matches FF calendar on their homepage.

Did you set your daylight saving correctly?

Here's my live screenshot...

Update: Works perfectly when in mainscreen mode, but doesn't sound in widget mode, so I need to pass the session time variable to the widget class; will do for next build.

ToDo's:
Allow multiple emails
Sound session alert in widget mode

DST
 
For all those in Daylight Saving Zones, remember to uncheck the DST box in your timezone settings!

Hi
Just found your excellent download.
On the Web site links screen I do not see the titles in the different boxes but the links work. In other words the link boxes are grey but the links work! Any ideas what is the problem?
Great download and thanks for sharing

Sounds an interesting problem, perhaps your generic font family in Windows is over-riding the font setting i used on the form...dunno.

Can you post a screen-shot to have a gander.
