OOXML2Txt

Post by MSpagni » Thu May 31, 2018 12:39 pm

Compare a couple of files xlsx with plugins (OOXML2Txt): all is fine;
do a "manual synch",
remove it and... at least on Win7 it's a mess.
To get something meaningful iyou need to close EDP and restart.

On XP I get:
Plug-in "C:\Programmi\ExamDiff Pro\Plug-Ins\OOXML2Txt\OOXML2Txt.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\Flurmy\Impostazioni locali\Temp\edD2900C98-3F3E-4114-AE2B-076D33EA2AB5.tmp.xlsx" "C:\DOCUME~1\Flurmy\IMPOST~1\Temp\ed5BCE5F4E-BAF4-4F5F-9764-34705B9451A6.tmp.xlsx" produced no output (its return code was 0).

The plug-in returned the following error: Cannot find central directory

File C:\Documents and Settings\Flurmy\Impostazioni locali\Temp\edD2900C98-3F3E-4114-AE2B-076D33EA2AB5.tmp.xlsx will be compared without applying plug-in(s).

I doubt Windows version has anything to do with the results but I tried your steps on Windows 10, and all worked as expected: removing manual synchronization links one-by-one triggered recompare of plugin-generated files, and removing the last link resulted in re-running the plug-in.

The culprit was "Save files before re-comparison" combined with manual links and removal of the last one. The fix will come in the next 10 Beta build.
