On Win 7 home 64 bit. Running Mosaic 264 alpha.

I create a few widgets, add some sites and people. Next, I exit the program and re-launch again, only to find everything I set up gone and not saved.

I tried right clicking run as administor with the same result.

Would appreciate any input.

I have the same problem with the exact same error log.

martianboy, could you please check where exactly it crashes (what line) by setting breakpoint in Social.Base.SocialProvider.GetFriendStream method and running it step by step?

I could, but I don't see the source code for Social.Base anywhere. Are you sure you've uploaded it? I only have its DLL.

Here is the trick on how you add people from fb.

1.  click option - make sure the "enable fullscreen mode" is uncheck.

2. now add people that you like.

3. you can now check the "enable fullscreen mode".

I don't have fullscreen mode enabled at all. Here is the line from GetFriendStream where the error occurs:


var commentsData = (IList<object>)comments["data"];

'comments' only have 'count' in its keys and no 'data'.

Update: The thing is that it only occurs for some of items in my Facebook feed. I still don't know why.

martianboy, I commited a fix for it. Please see if it crashes somewhere else in this method.

Jul 5, 2011 at 6:25 PM

Thanks for the fix. Just for information, I think I've found what's causing the problem. For feed items with too many comments, Facebook just returns the count of comments, and not the data itself. Mosaic was crashing exactly on these posts.

I'll apply the fix and test again.

Thanks. It works now. I can add people without hitch.

But another question: how can I preserve my widgets, twitter authorization, etc. when upgrading to a new release?

You can copy .config files from previous build
