Any idea of what might cause that error?

Happened again, this time I definitely closed Beersmith on my "remote" machine.  Sometime later that day I noticed the error, almost as if beersmith was still running after exit.

Hi,
  I don't know yet - I have been hearing problems from some people who upgraded their BeerSmith 2 version and were running on a separate drive (network or external), so I'm going to try to set that up as a test case this week and see if I can duplicate the problems.

Thanks for the followup.  If you need any help re-creating, let me know.

You don't think the fact that my data folder is a non-standard subfolder could be a contributing factor here, do you?

Hi,
  Actually I do think this is related to non-standard data folders - such as having them on a separate drive for the PC version.  I'm going to do some debugging on it as soon as I can finish up on my Mac Cocoa port which has been causing me fits the past few days...

Still happening.  Again, I closed beersmith on my remote machine.  When I went back to that computer an hour or too later (it had been in standby mode) I got an error.  Now, on my "server" machine, recipes are partially missing.

7:22:07 AM: failed to flush the file '\\D9200\BeerSmith2\JS-Data/T-6399Recipe.bsmx' (error 64: the specified network name is no longer available.)

..........

I run Beersmith.exe from \\D9200\BeerSmith2\BeerSmith2.exe
my data directory is \\D9200\BeerSmith2\JS-Data


Hey, have you tried mapping a network drive to the shared location?  I know that a lot of times there can be problems using a UNC for things like this, especially when you are not running a full MS domain and relying on WINS for this translation.  Also, I would recommend mapping your network drive to the IP address, just to take the translation out of the equation.

I did map a network drive and in one non-scientific test, the problem did not occur.  Fingers are crossed.
