Hi,

Since I updated to LaunchBar 5, using the string to Blitz Search sets HS to unlicensed. I then have to enter the license again. Is this a known bug?

Hi!

Sorry to hear you are having trouble.

Could you please detail the exact steps needed to reproduce this problem?

BTW, it is unlikely that HoudahSpot gets set to unlicensed. It's probably just the message being displayed erroneously. You may want to ignore it for now.

Hi again --

Thanks for your quick reply.

It happens only when I evoke LaunchBar HS string and HS is *not* open. (If opened, there's no problem.) And, yes, you were right, the license is still valid even if asked.

The worse part is that after the warning, for it to disappear I have to click 'OK', and then be redirected to the website. (Not that I don't like the website itself... but it's a killer to my workflow.)

Hi!

Thanks for providing the details.

The problem is actually in a different location than what I expected. I will try to fix ASAP.

Hi!

HoudahSpot 2.3.3 should fix this issue. Thank you for your patience.

I'm sorry to report that the "Unlicensed" bug has bitten me with HS 3.7.7 and LaunchBar 5.4.3.

It seems to be exactly as mjvalente described back in 2009: the message that HS is not yet licensed appears only when LaunchBar launches HS via a Blitzsearch. If HS is already running, everything is OK. If I use LaunchBar to launch HS directly, that's OK too. And as Pierre pointed out, the warning is not "real", since the license file stays in place within ~/Application Support/HoudahSpot.

Nevertheless, it's disconcerting!

Hi!

Thank you for the heads-up.

I plan on releasing a fix tomorrow.
Up to now I thought the bug would only hit when launching HoudahSpot by opening a saved search from the Finder.
The license check then happens too early: before the license file is loaded.

As a workaround, you can select License from the HoudahSpot menu and leave the license window open when you quit HoudahSpot.
The window will be restored on the next launch and trigger early loading of the license file.

I will see if I can get 3.7.8 released today.

Hi!

I have just released HoudahSpot 3.7.8

This should fix the issue of HoudahSpot ignoring the installed license file.
