Always confused
Nice software. Dude do you need any help regarding adding even more to archive? There are many programmers here and we can build together if you can make your software opensource .
We could interact together at digitarchive.sourceforge.com (I a bit more ambitious):-D
This gives us a chance to develop software to aid our favorite mag.

I've figured that out. I've vista x64 edition installed where there is no office apps is installed & your software worked perfectly on that.

Anyway, thanks for replying.

Buddy - can you add license type of the apps provided in digit dvds to your soft ?
So it will be easier for us to determine which type of license a particular software has ?

I pointed out in the first post. The source of the database is Digit Forum where the digit team posts only the software names and their categories. I need to have the size and type of the software only then can I add it in the Archive. I hope you understand.

I have been following up with them for the past 4 months but I dont know whats taking them so long to include it in DVD.

Now this one feature is really useful. It will save us from downloading newer version each month & now you have uploaded it on a good website. No probs in downloading. Keep on the great work buddy :p

BTW, you should state here that after extracting the archive a user should rename the My Digit Archive v2.ex_ to My Digit Archive v2.exe
& you should also include a readme file with the archive with instruction & a little info about you :p

Thanks a ton buddy for pointing out the .ex_ thing. I had changed the extension before sending it to Digit via mail, forgot to change it back.

I've corrected the link. Its all right now. Thanks again. I'll work on the ReadMe file and include one.

Added an Auto-Update feature to version 2.0.Now the Archive database will be updated from the internet. All previous users are requested to download the latest version.
__________________________________________________________________________________
On this extended weekend I have been able to make an application which works like The Original Digit Archive. I've used Microsoft Visual Basic 6 for designing the front end and connected it with Microsoft Access.

Updated to July 2009. Here is the download link.
http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1311758/My Digit Archive v2.zip

The Zip contains two files :

* My Digit Archive v2.exe
* Archive.mbd

My Digit Archive

* Allows user to search the database according to Name, Month & Category.
* Displays the Details of the selected Software as : Month, Category & Year in which it was published.
* Source of my Database was monthly Contents uploaded on the Forum. So, Keeping the source in mind I couldn't implement the Type & Size of software.

Update
Provided a both Automatic and manual update through which the user can update the Database each Month. I Update my Database and offer it as a download from the Internet for other users.

Known Bugs
Presently Two in The Manual Update section, Archive works flawlessly :

1. Insert New Data: During Manual updation, The name cannot have ' (apostrophe). If it is entered, The Program crashes and exits. I guess its related to the 'String' during SQL insertion messing up.

2. Insert New Data : The Software names are separated using a NextLine. So, it is important to leave an extra Line after the last software name.

I'm currently doing BCA (3rd Year), All comments and suggestions are welcome...

Hi all!

Its been some time since I made Digit Archive for the readers. It was well received on the Forum but going by last few issues of the magazine it seems people have not found it useful.

To be frank, the only feature which it lacks compared to the Old Digit Archive is the description of the applications. The reason why its impossible for me to include the same with each software is that Digit itself does not provide the description on the Forum.

So there is no way in which this can be updated. Moreover, I am sure you all would understand that I wont be copy pasting description for each software from each month's DVDs which contains approx 200 software.

It was quite disheartening to read the comment of Mr. RS Bhattacharya in particular where he claims that the Archive is useless and Digit may have not even tested it before releasing it in the DVDs and how a novice is not worth finding a place in Digit's Software.

A lot of effort goes into making any software application. If Mr. Bhattacharya can offer to improve the same, I'll be glad to share my Source Code among all readers of Digit through this forum.

I plan to release the source code of my version if there are people willing to work on improving the same. What do you say guys?
