Update Virtual Box file list

Post by osoko » Tue Nov 01, 2022 7:02 pm

Is it possible to update the virtual box catalog without having to restart the protected application ?

In fact, my virtual box files are downloaded by the apps itself, but when the download is done,
i have no other solution but to close and restart the application to take the downloaded virtual box protected files in count.

It seem's to be no specific command i could call from the enigma api to rescan the virtual box files.

Is it a way to do this ?

Hi, there is no way to do that, but it is good idea for our todo list as a feature for future versions.

Oh thank's this will be so much appreciated :D

By the way, a command to allow user to specify a virtual files folder would be great too.
By default i specify :\AppsName\Datas Form C:\ to Z:\, to authorize user to use every possible disk location.

But this method forces the application to scan all possible disks, and this takes time if the disks are stopped.
Moreover it would be nice if the user could specify the directory or directories of his choice. This would makes the apps more user friendly.

Just curious, why do you need such feature? You can put virtual files in the %DEFAULT FOLDER% and access this folder from application. Why do you need to promote virtual files to different disks, from C: to Z:? What is the purpose of that, please explain.

It's because I'm developing a virtual tour software.
I have 360° panoramas in very high resolution. Some scenes are several GB in size.
That's why I have this "trick" for hard drives from C:\My_App\Datas to Z:\My_App\Datas, because of the size of the files.
I find it normal to allow the user to target a directory in the hard drive of his choice.
I think it would be simpler to be able to ask the user which directories he wants to use.
That would be more user friendly.
