    The PA Offline Mode bug on Windows 7 should now be fixed \o/

    It seems that starting PA.exe inside bin_x64 directly instead of the PA.exe "forwarder" in the parent folder avoid this issue.

    It doesn't "default" to that, but it "remember" the last tab opened : client or server. I always wanted to add a tiny delay for that, to avoid people passing through the server tab to see the server mods instead of client mods, but I never took the time to do it.

    It would be cool if the automatic submit process would rewrite the date of the mod. I think the one mistake I have done by far the most often in this process is screwing up the date in one way or another.

    Hello!

    Great work on PAMM. I really liked it while it worked.

    As of today however, I doesn't seem to work anymore for me. When it (PAMM) starts I see the grey background with some drop-down menu's (or something like that) for half a second, but then everything disappears and I have an empty Window. I tried minimizing / resizing, as it looks like a silly drawing error, but to no avail.

    To be clear: PA itself works fine.

    Any advice?

    EDIT: I already tried re-installing; turning it (PC) off and on again; installing latest PA update.

    Maybe you have some broken mod installed?

    I renamed mods.json so PA doesn't load any mods. I started PA, and indeed, it hadn't loaded any mods. Then I quit PA.

    Still, the PAMM manager flashes content for half a second, and then becomes an empty window. See screenshot.

    I ran PAMM.exe from Windows command line, and saved the output to this text-file. I don't see any error-messages in it though...

    You have some username on windows that contains characters that are not withing a-z.
    So i.e. russian, chinese, etc.
    That isn't supported by PA. I don't know a fix though. Maybe rename your user account on windows if that is possible or create another one with a fixed name.

    Yeah, the "fix" is to make a new user account and run PA and PAMM from your main account using the "Run as..." functionality in Windows. Even the guest account supposedly works. The real fix would have to come from Uber or Coherent Labs. I'm still not sure who's to blame. (Well, apart from the English of course for using such a small portion of the alphabet. :) )
