Multiple Sessions with hot folders not running independently

Post by layzor »

For the past few months, I've had the following setup:

3 saved profiles, running in 3 separate XnConvert windows/sessions, each window looking at 3 different hot folder individually.

Recently, I've noticed that all 3 sessions have been looking into each other's hot folder and it 'competes' to process the files even tho they haven't been selected in the hot folder. I can tell it competes because in the Status tab, I can see one has processed it, and the others comes up with an open error.

I have restarted the machine, reset and reloaded the profiles and configs and still its competing and looking at other hot folders. I am currently running version 1.80.

Anyone else experiencing this? Also, any way I can fix it?

if you change hot folder in one isntance, it will be changed for others too..

i'm wrong, with current version it's not possible to choose different .ini, i'll add for next version

Might be an inappropriate silly question but, what's the ETA on the next version?

you set your settings+hot folders, rename the xnconvert.ini into xnconvert1.ini, make the same for xnconvert2.ini

Sounds simple.

But how does each XnConvert instance know which .INI to refer to?

when you start it, use -ini to choose the ini file

Where am I running this command from? CMD?
xnconvert -ini xnconvert.ini
Or from the shortcut properties?
