MLVFS not working after a couple months
« on: June 14, 2018, 05:11:25 AM »
MLVFS not working after a couple months of inactivity. it was working fine just a couple months ago. then i stopped recording videos and havent run it since. but now i recently started up again and for some reason it doesnt work now. i enter in the correct commands in command prompt but it just bring me back to the start
example:
C:\Windows>cd..

C:\>cd MLVFS

C:\MLVFS>mlvfs.exe Z:/ --mlv-dir=C:\Users\mesem\Videos\pop

C:\MLVFS>
 
and thats how it always goes occasionally a second command prompt window will appear but only for a second and then it just closes.
is there some kind of log somewhere where i can figure out exactly why it is failing?
(using windows 10)

Try:

C:\MLVFS>mlvfs.exe -f Z:/ --mlv-dir=C:\Users\mesem\Videos\pop

It will run MLVFS in the foreground from the console. Watch console output, there should be some debug messages.

okay so i did that and the error came out that the software was incompatible with my system because it it was outdated and then said access denied. (sorry i dont remember the exact message) then i downloaded the X64 version of mlvfs and installed a new dokan( 1.1.0,2000x64 ) . and it does the same thing as before where it just goes right back to the beginning (like my first message described) and does not provide a debug message even when i included the -f .

(i even reset my pc and it did the same thing after i reset it. reset like factory reset but kept the files)

I have the same problem with Win 10x64.  It refuses to execute the batch sequence and stops as described above.  Every time I wiant to start MLVFS, I have to type the lines of the batch file manually hitting ENTER after each line.  Then it works.  Seems to be a Windows problem.   On my Win 7x64 computer at work it works normally.  Very frustrating!

I experienced the same issue but then used the mlvfs.exe located here: https://bitbucket.org/bouncyball/mlv-tools/downloads/

Along with the latest Dokan, I have no problem opening raw video files.  Do not use the x64 exe.
