Unfortunately, I did notice this as well T!M, not only that but also the Reputation system keeps failing, as some positive ratings I did give pre and post 'crash' did disappear and even after several revotes, they keep disappearing.

Well, I do find the Reputation system failing not that big of an issue, but several (new "first-level" but also "second-level") contributions from May 26th and up are still not processed or have been accepted/rejected. Even those "second-level" with "Yes" votes still are not processed. And that I don't like.

I had one submission with a "No" vote, but that one I had withdrawn myself before the 'crash', so I don't bother about that.

Indeed it looks like some restore process of the DB/server has been done but of course no mention of it on the forum by any of the staff. So it is more of just a guessing game at what went wrong and what is the current status of the DB/server and its reliability.

So my question now is if we should resubmit those first and second level submissions or do we still have to be patient that those will eventually be processed?

If we can't rely on the integrity of the DB I don't see any reason of submitting new data anymore, but I do still hope it is just a temporary 'glitch'. So I will keep submitting until it is clear there won't be any improvements in the near future.

Good to hear that everything is working fine again.
Yeah, this could well be a online slipoff, but like you said, it seems to have cleared itself up, and that is all what counts.

I just submitted 3 different (new) profiles within a couple of hours and did not have any problems at all.

Did you, by any means, recently restore an older DB or make some changes using one of our add-ins?
And did you already try to repair the DB completely and check if that changed anything?

Just a couple of things that came to mind, could be that I am totally off.

Hello. I have a release that is not currently in the database and would like to submit it. However, this release shares a UPC with a different title already in the database. How do I go about submitting this so it does not submit as a correction for the previous release already submitted with this UPC.

Hi Noe1da, could you please give us the UPC which already is available with a different title?
And which title do you want to submit?

Different titles with the same UPC# either could be the case with constructions like Dollar Tree DVD's/BD's or could be a counterfeit/bootleg copy, which also quite often do use the same UPC/EAN numbers.

But to make sure it would make it more convenient if we know which title and UPC it is and if it was bought at, for example, stores like Dollar Tree (i.e. discount stores/chains).

It appears to be that quite some (Windows 11 wise, 'legacy') libraries still working, albeit not to 100% compatibility for some, but that we have to test.

I can run these plugins on my system and I don't know if you (mediadogg and marcelb7) already have checked yourself on a Windows 11 system, but please do provide me the right info about downloading, installing, configuring, and testing these plugins, so I could report back to you about the current status.

There are even more ways to fix things, without the need to update/patch the applications.
You can use, for example, so-called Shims, which can be build using the "Application Compatibility Administrator".
This tool and the Shims thereof are way more enhanced than the internal Program Compatibility Troubleshooter of Windows.

I have recently upgraded to Windows 11 Pro Insiders Preview.  I was able to load DVD Profiler and restore my database. It seems that profiler has been functioning perfectly except for trying to backup my database.  Every time I try to backup selecting Full Backup I get an error stating, Cannot open file M:\Profiler\dvdprofiler\ACTORASSGN.DAT.  I select the check boxes for Send error report to Invelos and Include a screenshot of DVD Profiler, write a brief description, saying backing up database. And click ok to send and that fails saying HTTP error code: 87 and I click OK and it says Sorry, sending the message didn't work, with a OK button to click.

I will look into this. Hope to have a solution or at least an answer about it asap.

Edit: So far so good, still backup in progress (backing up cover scans.. This will take a while).

Indeed like mediadogg said, perhaps a repair of the database could fix this.

I will report back when I do have some more information.

Edit2: The backup has just been completed. Everything is fine.

Some additional info on my system.
Windows 11 (Dev 10.0.22449.1000) Pro has been cleanly installed as a VM, using VMware Workstation.
DVD Profiler (4.0.0 build 1762) has been installed locally on that system.
I did use my master DVDP DB of my primary machine via the folder sharing feature of VMware.

To me, the issue looks DB-related and chances are true that this can be fixed when using the Database Repair Utility.

I noticed that there have hardly been any new entries for at least a year. In the meantime, however, a few films have been released. Especially in the last few months. Is DVDProfiler history?

Like I said earlier on in another topic, this online database is a community-driven platform.
If a particular movie (whether it is a DVD, Blu-ray, or HD-DVD for that matter) is not part of the database then by all means please submit it yourself.
And in the case of your locality, it is most likely that most of the time only German people will submit new entries.

Simply put, if all people are just waiting for some new submissions, rather than adding it themselves, the online database will soon indeed be a relic of the past.
It all depends on the willingness of the community to keep the DVDProfiler DB up-to-date and alive.

Thanks scotthm and ObiKen for the insightful info! 
These are most certainly better ways to scan these kinds of covers.

And jurgen42u, success with the scans!

Quite some scanners (in my case the Canon CanoScan LiDE 700F) have a Backlight Correction function in their software, originally to remove shadows from photos with quite a lot of backlight.
But if properly adjusted then you could use this setting also for those shiny metallic (gold, silver, bronze, etc.) finished covers.

It is just a case of trial and error.

Oh, and afterward you also can use the Exposure, Shadows-Highlights, and White Balance functions of your photo editing software, just to adjust the picture more to your liking.
Personally, I use GIMP, but other editing applications also should do the trick.

Oops, that didn't work. Was trying to show my message. Will edit with screen shot.

Edit:

Here is the message I got.

Yes, Microsoft changed the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11.
But like you said earlier on, Windows 10 still will be supported up to October 14, 2025, so I don't feel the need to upgrade to 11 unless you have new and supported hardware.

I use a hypervisor to install and use Windows 11, which is one of the supported ways to install the OS without the specific need of the minimum requirements on a physical machine.
You can use Hyper-V from Microsoft (free and standard available in Windows 10 Pro and up (Enterprise, Pro, or Education to be precise)).
But I personally use VMware Workstation 16 Pro, which is IMHO a more versatile product.
VMware also has a free and somewhat more enhanced albeit paid edition, called VMware Workstation Player.

There also is Oracle VirtualBox, free as well, but I am not sure whether you can use Windows 11 without the need of the minimum hardware requirements.

I am an IT consultant, specialized in building, testing, and modifying Windows systems and applications for large corporates, that's the main reason I have these hypervisors running.
But for private reasons I am, for example, also using several VM's for legacy and testing purposes.

That way you can experiment with Windows 11, without the risks of eventual issues of not or bad running some applications on your primary machine, when using 11.

Furthermore, do you have some examples of plugins that eventually make use of the HTML Windows and HTML Notes libraries?
I can try to test them and can report back whether these would work or not.

Edit: Right now I am updating my Windows 11 with Windows 11 Insider Preview 22449.1000 and will report back if DVD Profiler still is running normally.
I am curious about the several addons/plugins and standalone tools regarding DVD Profiler, whether they will work correctly or not. So if you or anyone else does want to know about particular things, feel free to ask, so that I can try to test them asap.

Update: Yep, DVD Profiler still appears to be working normally with OS Build 22449.1000.

curious to know if the platform will support Invelos DVd profiler.


Yes, it does.
I am already testing several builds of Windows 11 and on at least 2 of them, I did install and start DVD Profiler just fine.
Keep in mind though that the finished product of Windows 11 could be somewhat different.
Also, Internet Explorer 11 is, as far as I know, not part of Windows 11 anymore, so some features (like editing of "My Links") could be troublesome. That IE part I did not test as for this moment, but will sure do asap.

Edit: Indeed, while Internet Explorer is not part of Windows 11 anymore, Microsoft did add some IE components in Windows 11, which are there for backward compatibility purposes.
If you try to start iexplore.exe, the Microsoft Edge browser will be started instead.
But there is was a workaround (which Microsoft did remove in later builds) to enable IE11 once again if, for example, some parts of DVD Profiler won't work.

The "My Links" functionality appears to be working as well, but I am not sure whether IE11 is used on other portions of the DVD Profiler application and if so, if these will still work.
By the looks of it, there should be no problem.

The version of Windows 11 I did use for the tests is: Windows 11 Version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.168)
Newer builds still need to be tested.


As you can see in the screenshot, DVD Profiler does work and even the "My Links" section.
This section will be invoked using Microsoft Edge WebView2 and does have the IE compatibility mode.

N.B. Based on your question, technically the application does work, as far as I could test and see.
But officially Invelos (Ken) did not release a statement that explicitly states that Windows 11 is supported, as of yet.
Unfortunately, chances are slim that there will be any further statement related to DVD Profiler (whether it is for Windows, Android, or iOS) at all.
