Results window column missing

Unread postby tbukkos » Mon Nov 14, 2022 6:49 pm

Hello, I recently ran across this little gem of software and purchased a license; for my activity is vital to record the Gap (or lap time) on the stopwatch timer, and although in the program help I see it listed, on my app it's not shown; using the official version listed on the website as of November 14th - xnsw168.zip.

I also have issues with the registration for the program sticking; once I type in my registration info I get a confirmation message that software is registered under my name but once I close the program and open again it shows unregistered.

A third problem I have is related to running multiple instances; although I downloaded and installed the install version, not the portable one, I get error message saying I need to download the install version for multi instance for this software. Any help with these issues would be greatly appreciated.

Try to drag the column borders. Generally those columns are deprecated in favor of Excel.

What version? Portable? Installation?

There is a special folder and shortcut in the Start menu.

Thank you for your reply, for two out of 3 items I was able to find the solution on my own, I will attach it to help others experiencing the same issue:
-Gap tab missing from Results Window: need to modify .Stopwatch.ini file in the installation folder and replace 0 with a number for Gap variable (after default installation the number was 0 for Gap and % for me)
-User registration issue: after I ran the installation program and the icon on the desktop as Administrator the registration information was recorded and I no longer experience any issues with this

As far as the multi instance, I'm running Windows 10 x64, used the installation version of the software which created a desktop shortcut but the entries and shortcuts from my start menu are missing; I have checked the Start Menu and also the folder corresponding to the Start Menu on my C: drive. Please kindly provide the shortcut I need to use to launch multiple instances of your program, I have it installed in: "C:\Program Files (x86)\XNote Stopwatch\xnsw.exe"

Thank you for your help!

Edit: I was able to get the multiple instance going, the problem I'm having now is it's asking me again for the registration information every time I open a new timer; typing in the name and license key only works for the first time, when I close the timers I have the same issue. How can I get the registration information and also the timer configuration to "stick" for each new timer I'm launching?
