WEI tool fails with error

Post by Naki »

When I run the WEI tool on my 2nd Windows 8.1 PC, I get an error saying:
Invalid argument to date encode. (with a red cross icon)
Trying to run the rating via Rate this computer shows the same error, so can not run.
Any ideas why? Can I (or you?) fix this?

System has Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, fully updated.
Intel Core i5 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, ASRock mobo, SSD + HDDs.

And second question - how can I translate the program GUI into Bulgarian?
What file do I edit and using what tools? (Notepad/etc)

Attach a screenshot with the error message.

To translate our software from English to Bulgarian you need to make a copy of English.lng file under "Language" folder (where you have installed the software) to Bulgarian.lng.

Open the file in Notepad and translate the text on the right side of the "=" (equal sign). Please don't make changes to the left side of "=".

This has nothing to do with the bug, as my date and time are fine.
I believe the Date/time format is the cause, not the date and time themselves. You may want to test with Windows 8.1 set to Bulgarian Regional Settings in Control Panel.
I will test later today what happens if I switch them to US English and report back. :)

It appears when I run the program. Yes, after the message, I click OK and the program starts.
Clicking Rate this computer shows an UAC prompt first, I click Yes, then the same error appears again, and no rating process starts.
Hope that helps!

Try this new ChrisPCWei.exe, download it and save it in the folder where ChrisPC WEI is installed:
