lol. No you're correct Dave. I guess I knew deep down that I'd be flogging a dead horse. And I totally agree with you in saying wot bollox with regards to install/reinstall etc. I was absolutely bouncing when I read that patronising bit of advice. And to rub it in I had to wait five days for it.
TomTom Go 700 (original one!!) running SE9.051, Windows 10
I have tomtom home set up under a user on this system that works perfectly, although it is an old version - not allowed to update - it allows me to reconfigure the .cfg file after a map update and I'm happy with it.
However, the account that is on is also an "Admin" account as its mine, For various reasons I have set up some non-admin accounts and have "migrated" all the needed stuff across and most of it works fine ... except TT Home ..
It works, mostly, until I come to "Operate my Go" when it tells me it needs to download a file, but it then fails as the device is no longer supported (or my version of Home is too old I guess). If I log into windows on the original account it works perfectly !!
Anyone know which file I need to copy, and where to copy it to, in order that Home will work with the new account ?? I must have the right file somewhere as it works on the original account !!
Thanks for the idea .. but more odd behaviour ... if I run the latest FA "patch Home" when logged in on the original account it simply says "Home patched" and does nothing as there is apparently nothing to do When I log out from that account and back in on the new account, run FA and it gives the error "Home profile dll" not found.
That's good news Entwood! Obviously you've already done a full Windows backup of ALL THIS STUFF??
Aad, I must admit I don't remember ever needing to "patch TTHome" or even know WTF that was/is all about as it's not the same as fooling the TT server into believing you already have the latest TTHome to stop it forcing you to accept the latest version!
Can someone please remind an old man (not you Aad, the other old man), me!
Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/left
Hihihihi Dave, I only remember once when you connected with TomTom Home and you want to manage you device via Home, there was a need to download a small file first.
I don't remember exactly anymore, something was necessary to with that dll file.
Fastactivate came and took over a difficult task for some and the patch was just a simple click that's all I remember.
But I'll search my system, I'm more or less sure the have somewhere a manual how to solve that problem yourself.
Nowt to backup on the device, no changes since the new maps went on and that backup done .. a few more changes to the two new accounts on the system and a full disc image to an external hard drive will run at 02:00 tomorrow as it's Sunday and that is back-up day .. ... disc image of C: at 02:00 , full sync copy of discs E: to J: at 05:00..
