Hi Svenrus,
I haven't been able to test on every version of Windows unfortunately. if you are interested to help me locate the problem I can offer you a free 5 year subscription for your trouble. It's probably something easily fixable.
kind regards
Finnian Reilly (My Ching developer)

Sorry, I've tried the possibilities available without luck.

I downloaded trial version but it had only the logs, no Wilhelm text. Uninstalled it and computer's been dragging since. Ran Webroot scan and found no virus. Emptied cache. Disk clean up had a few files cleaned. That seemed to help, but need to run regular programs to be sure.

I should mention that computer is running fine again.

Sorry, Finnian; didn't mean to rain on your parade. I really would like an accurate download of Wilhelm.

Advice from experience - do get permission from the publisher, or they may come after you seeking retroactive payment.

Hi Sooo,
As part of standard testing, I have installed and uninstalled My Ching many times on Windows 7 and 8 without any problem. Are you using an older version of Windows? If so I can do some testing on the version you have.

The My Ching tour makes clear that the menu of hexagram translations and commentaries are web pages on the Internet. You have to be online to see them.
http://myching.co/en/tour/viewing-journal-pages.html#On-line_Hexagram_Resources

If you would like a download of Wilhelm I would suggest using a tool like wget. Also this link has the entire text on one page which you can save with Firefox

Thank you, Finnian.

A clean and accurate DL and/or online source is really what I've been wanting. I don't use the other features. I'm running Win7.

Dear Svenrus,
lately I have been doing extensive testing of My Ching on a 32-bit Windows XP laptop with a non-English language pack. I uncovered a number of significant bugs which I have fixed in version 0.99.24 available now for download.

My guess is that the problem you experienced was related to accented characters in the graphical file paths. There is an excellent chance that the corrected version will now work on your computer. My apologies for the inconvenience you had before.

The full list of bugs fixed is described in the release notes: http://myching.software/en/download/release-notes.html

Let me know if you have any more issues. I will shortly be obtaining a Windows Vista machine for testing.

Kind regards
Finnian

Hi Svenrus
Oh dear, looks like a problem specific to Vista. But don't worry, I hope to have a Vista machine next week to test on. I will contact you when I have a fix. And thanks for the exception trace. It is giving a useful clue where to look. Sorry for the inconvenience.
regards
Finnian
I've just tried and a short PopUp box said: Only limited to one window/close-button.
But also there appeared a LOG, which I'll copy and past here for Your information:

Problem detecting Aero theme

Hi Svenrus,
the problem you experienced was related to My Ching detecting whether an Aero theme is active, I have replaced some cumbersome code with some much simpler code that is sure to be more portable between different versions of Windows. While I have not yet tested it on Vista, I am 90% confident it will now work. I will know for sure next week when I take delivery of a Vista machine.

I have uploaded these changes as version 0.99.25
http://myching.software/en/download/release-notes.html#Version_0.99.25

The pop up box message was simply because the first instance of My Ching you opened, had got stuck on the error and was not exiting cleanly. My Ching is designed to be single instance program and won't let you have two instances running simultaneously.

Fingers crossed it will now work for you.
all the best
Finnian

Sorry for the trouble that this Win Vista has coursed to You. Anyway one can only learn from problems even though maybe Vista soon is going to the eternal field of old stuff. I've been used for the last seven years to Vista and will keep it as long as possible. More and more I'm confronted with not being able to download some programs because "work with windows seven and up" - or even win 8 is demanded.
I wanted to say this before I try one more time, just so that You don't bother too much around Vista....
I'll report back soon.
And thanks for Your effort.
