Thank you, I had already tried a few capture applications some time ago, Licecap included, but they all create the same type of GIFs. Dunno what the problem may be but rendering is horrible, black areas all over the place. Ah, let's forget about that.
Did I upload MyDiary 0.0.6.0? Pff, forgot about that. I remember trying some fixes and updates in that series but not sure about its current status. However, it definitely isn't fit for x64 usage, and not even for running under Unicode AHK. It does run under AHK 1.1 ANSI though, just tested it.
Unfortunately, development stalled once the 98SE machine was stopped for checkup and repairs, which has not yet happened.
If you miss dependencies, please run MyDiary with source
as command line parameter, it will deploy most sources in a new folder. The rest is in this package:
Choking happened due to the inability to load any Hunspell dictionary, a check missing in the code. At first start the exe deploys the Hunspell dictionaries but only if the respective folder doesn't exist, and then tries to add their names to a submenu, retrieving that submenu's handle. If you first ran the source script and the dic folder wasn't present, the script created the folder but had no files to put in it; then, when you ran the exe, it saw the folder but couldn't load any dictionary, then retrieving the submenu handle failed because that sub menu didn't exist. There was a message box stating the error but it was hidden under the splash screen; it probably didn't occur to you to drag it away (yes, it's draggable).
Manually deploying the dictionary files in the
subfolder should fix it.
You may try v0.0.5.4, it may be more stable. Without an x64 machine at hand I won't be able to check and fix the code. However, hopefully something in there will be of use to you and anybody else interested.
