a lot of modules missing after a content update

After doing a content upgrade, Accordance no longer recognizes several tools. They appear in the library, but when I select them, the "Where is the file for the [name here] text?" dialog box appears.

 

This is the list of all the missing modules. This already happened before, but I tried my patience in downloading them all over again, but modules just suddenly "disappear" after each content update.

 

NETS, LXX-B, SCHLA, IVP-NB Dictionary, Eerdmans Dictionary
IVP-Jesus & Gospels, IVP-Paul & Letters, IVP-Theology, IVP-Later NT, IVP-NT Background, IVP-Pocket Dictionaries, IVP-Biblical Imagery, IVP-Hard Sayings
IVP-NT Commentary, IVP-OT Commentary, IVP-NB Commentary, IVP-NB Atlas
NETS Notes, NETS2 Notes, ASV Notes, American Church, BDB, TWOT, Biblical Aramaic, Parables & Miracles, Alexander-Ethics, American Christianity
Sample Tool

I have three different suggestions:

 

  1. Remove the module from the Library and add it back.
  2. Contact tech support in person, not on the Forums (they don't have time to come here).
  3. Report your system and Accordance versions to help us help you and maybe track down the bugs.

It was not on Windows for me, but I've had this happen with several updates--however, it always seemed to be an Internet/time-out issue, i.e., when the Internet connection was slow.

 

I thought I had read that a recent Accordance update was already going to eliminate the appearance of "Where is...?" messages in such a case, but perhaps this will come soon.

The updates help so that you can find the module with the Where is... They cannot eliminate it.

 

There is a problem that some versions on Windows installed the updates in the wrong locations. This is fixable if you know your way around the file system, but it's not easy on Windows as some directories are not normally visible. Contact Tech support for help.

Hi Helen,

 

As for 1., I couldn't do it, since the modules are no longer there in their respective folders, and if they do have an "atool" folder, it's empty.

 

Ok, I'll contact tech support then; but I posted this here because I think it's a bug, more than anything else.

 

And I forgot to add the version details in my first message. Here they are: [Acc 10.4.0pr1, HP Pavilion g6-2306el, Win8.1]

 

Thanks.

I really would like to look at this myself, or have one of our programmers look at it. Am now working with Mr. T.

 

You can remove the modules from the Library tab in Accordance and reinstall, that should work. We need to see what is happening with the updates.

Ok; these are quite a lot of files to download again over a slow connection, but I guess there's no other way, for now. I'll keep you posted as to what happens when I do a content update after reinstalling these modules.

 

Thanks
