Runtime Error on Advanced Rename

Postby Dianne » Wed Mar 14, 2007 5:47 am

I downloaded 4.6.0 this evening and installed it over 4.5.3; Dell destop, WinXP Pro; lots of memory. It seemed to install fine. I\'ve looked through several folders of images, tried a number of various functions with no apparent problems. Then, I tried Image>Advanced renaming -- it generates a runtime error and shuts the program down. The folder contains jpgs from a Nikon D200; some with the original file names; some have been edited and have had the names changed. It doesn\'t seem to matter if I have no images selected, 1 image selected, or several images selected. It generates the runtime error dialog box and shuts down on OK. Same thing happens when I look at a different folder; everything seems fine until I try Image>Advanced renaming.
Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.

The same happened to me a couple of month ago with 4.5.2. The advanced renaming was working normal in 4.5.2 and I used it a lot (for regular renaming pictures after camera n x 10000 shots). Then, the advanced renaming just stopped to work and gives the same runtime error and shuts the program down as described above.

Hello,

can you tell me the renaming mask you are using?

Thanks,

The mask that I usually use is:
%Y%m%d-%{num:3}-%{substr:5:4}.%e

to get a result like 20070403-001-3576.jpg where the 3576 is the numerical part of the original filename from the camera (e.g., DSC_3576).

Sometimes, I use %Y5m%d-%{num:3}-custom description.%e where \"custom description\" is text describing the images or the shoot.

Thanks.
Dianne
