Wywołanie konstruktora dla typu „tasker.MainWindow” zgodnego z określonymi ograniczeniami wiązania spowodowało wyjątek.

Nieprawidłowy format ciągu wejściowego.

I've try clean whole directory and download it again - doesn't help.

Hi all,
congratulations for the great software! It seems to work very well, but I still have a problem.

I have programmed some tasks with the following logic:

Task 1: Check hard drive for files every 15 minutes (simply try to rename two files)
Task 2: If it does not find the files (trigger task1 result in error) download via action "map&audio.bat"
Task3: if task2 is done ... go ahead through the rest of the operations

so task3 will start only if presence of the files on hard disk is true.

The problem is: task 1 does not start by itself even if NEXT RUN shows the correct scheduled time

where am i wrong?

  Exclude words from wildcard ?
Posted by: paule - 04-16-2021, 06:01 PM - Forum: How To / Q&A - Replies (1)

Hi again -

So I need to achieve the following:

EG A podcast file comes in with the file name:  How to grow a marrow.mp3

Task 1 - Make a copy of it in an archive folder.
Task 2 - Change name of the How to grow a marrow.mp3 to VEGPOD.mp3
Task 3 - Have the new VEGPOD.mp3 replace/overwrite the old VEGPOD.mp3

Situation is a main folder called Vegpod where the podcast software downloads the new shows.
In it a folder called Archive containing all the old shows.
A file called VEGPOD.mp3 which is always the latest edition of the show.

When the next edition of the show comes through, called say  Tasty tomatoes.mp3, it downloads to the Vegpod folder and sits there with the Archive folder and the (now) older VEGPOD.mp3. When the file renaming task runs eg

File path     C:\Users\Radio\Music\Podcasts\Vegpod\*.mp3
New name  C:\Users\Radio\Music\Podcasts\Vegpod\VEGPOD.mp3

... it picks up both Tasty tomatoes.mp3 and VEGPOD.mp3 and therefore fails. I need it to rename Tasty tomatoes only.

So is there a way to have the wildcard exclude the word VEGPOD ?  Something like ...

File path     C:\Users\Radio\Music\Podcasts\Vegpod\[VEGPOD]*.mp3    ?

I have tried using another method that moves VEGPOD.mp3 to it's own foder (which therefore excludes it from the File path C:\Users\Radio\Music\Podcasts\Vegpod\*.mp3. The problem is that when the Trigger runs (on the timer) and no new file has arrived, it deletes VEGPOD.mp3 meaning no file to play. This was the reason for my enquiry last week re the file created Trigger - it would only run when a new file was there to run on.

A long winded explanation.

Any way of getting this to work ?



  File Created Trigger
Posted by: paule - 04-07-2021, 03:14 PM - Forum: How To / Q&A - Replies (24)

RoboIntern is a nifty tool helping me a great deal with file management. A question:

I subscribe to multiple podcasts, with all subs being checked once an hour. When a new podcast is created, is it possible to use the File Created Trigger to run the actions basically as soon as the new podcast file has downloaded ?

I'm currently using the time function to check the folder at certain intervals through the day/week but if it's possible for the file created trigger to do that it would be better. Maybe I need some sort of a formula to make it work ?

Many Thx

When I execute a SFTP task to download files, the application crashes.
Where can I get more log with the reason(s)? 
Eventviewer is no real use, but I share the log.

  Excel VBA Macro Loop
Posted by: TomF - 03-16-2021, 01:06 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (4)


I am having an issue where I have a task setup to run a excel macro once on a time event. 

When the excel macro is complete the task shows as completed for a second then the task automatically starts again. 

This process loops until the task/macro errors out.

Posted by: Feng Dragunov - 02-26-2021, 04:54 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (5)

Hello, i run into some problem here using robointern

in my case, my task or application cannot run continuously and it always stuck after several times,
and it gave back an error "executed with result 'Error' and message 'Process has exited, so the requested information is not available"

well i tried to run it every 5 seconds

i already tried
- windows task scheduler -> work just fine
- alternative ones -> work just fine
- it runs at the beginning (success) after several times it gave me that error
- if i run it manually, it will be executed although it gave me error

btw im trying running .jar and .bat here

Hello, I want to thank you for this amazing app that is so powerful, yet you give it for free.

Now I would like you to help me solve a problem of mine.

I want to make a notification reminder using data (dates) from excel. I like the notification to work even though the excel is closed.

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

I was wondering I could I have a trigger that runs on weekdays from 08.00 to 20.00, every 5 minutes.

I've tried to combine two triggers, weekly + high frequency. Even if it shows "Next Run" correctly the task is never executed.

Thank you
