Guys, I need some HFM experts here;

[06/07/2011-11:14:09] X HFM.Instances.MarkupGenerator.GenerateHtml Caught Exception: Root element is missing.

any idea what that is? for some reason:

http://www.ilaughatjoo.com/darkpredators/

im the only one that doesnt update there now :S

For whatever reason it simply won't update my stats into the FTP.

If it helps, I have Avast Free Antivirus and Windows 7 default Firewall (I added HFM to the program exception list in the Firewall settings just in case).

It worked just fine 2 days ago before re-installing Windows 7.


Any ideas?

Thank you,
kcuestag.

If that works, it can't be avast or your firewall...

Did you try re-downloading hfm and reinstalling it? It sounds funny, but I think hfm is finicky... my benchmark viewer just decided to not display anything...

Disabled Avast and Windows Firewall, still won't update anything.

Negative, I ticked the following boxes;

Copy HTML to Target
Copy FAHlog.txt to Target

That's it, and FTP mode is Passive.

Yeah... that should be ok.

err.. what happens with ftp mode to active?

EDIT: oh and where do you see that message in the first post?

EDIT2: yeah, ftp mode to active messed mine up.. so that isn't it

FTP Mode to Active doesn't help either.

I see those messages opening HFM and pressing F7 to see the log.

Yeah, just uninstalled it, then remove the whole HFM folder from Progam Files (x86) folder.

Installed it again, added the client again.

For some reason it kept my Settings (Like the FTP address and everything)...

Still not working, this is driving me nuts.

if it is keeping your settings, there's something left (and of course that has to be the problem... it always ends up like that
)

you have crapcleaner or something to wipe the registry entries as well?

You mean CCleaner? I could try, but will it break anything else than HFM? Or just the HFM registries?

Should just clean out unused/unassociated items... you'll have to uninstall hfm again first.

And yeah, CCleaner... aka crapcleaner

Isn't if funny how the simplest things can fix the problems that make you want to throw the computer off a bridge?
