HughesNet Usage Meter 6.7.0.0

Re: HughesNet Usage Meter 6.7.0.0

Or, better yet, you should understand that any program that is running on a computer, can create corrupted data if the computer is suddenly powered off.

Sorry, but there's not a *real* fix to sudden power losses and crashes causing corrupted data.  If you want to avoid such things, I suggest using an UPS, such as the typical 650w APC unit that should be suitable for most desktops.

All you have to do is close the program in the taskbar, then delete the HughesNet Usage Meter folder in C:\Users\[your User name]\AppData\Roaming\, then restart the application.  It will recreate the HughesNet Usage Meter folder inside Roaming.  Remember to enable hidden items to be viewed so you can find AppDAta and successive folders.    

 

There's no need to uninstall and reinstall, nor download a new installation file.

Deleted the  config file finally, took awhile to find it. Then went to program downloaded file and clicked on the main download file and finally the icon started to work without redownloading the whole program. Thanks. one final question why did the "old" version work just fine with the power crashing the computer and would come back up with the Status Meter intact and working?? New one crashes at the slightes hicup and hear we go again??

If you experience a lot of power outages, Try this:

Close down the application Usage Meter 6.7.0.0 after you have used it.  A power outage wont hurt it  when it is NOT running.

You can start it rather quickly from the shortcut on your desktop when you want to use it again.  :-)

 

"They" will fix the issue in 6.7.0.1

Re: HughesNet Usage Meter 6.7.0.0

Yep...seeing the same crashes of the Status Meter 6.7.0.0 on my Mac (OS ver. 10.12.6) after power outages....and that's been a frequent occurance with all the storms in my part of the mid-south.  Status meter app still initializes, but cannot connect to the modem.  Like you, I'll wait for the next version of the meter.

Just a bit of information,the meter is susceptible to power fail when computer is running. My son has a UPS set up for his computer, : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009TZTGWK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This would help when power is erratic and will maintain power voltages.

Definitely.  That's the only time I see the error.  We lose power a half dozen times or more each year, and if I'm on the computer when it happens it's inevitable that it's going to give that notice when the computer is powered back up.  

 

When you know how to fix it by heart, and quickly, you know it's happening too often.  Smiley Tongue
