Oh, I forgot to mention that there is now an easter egg in ProfilerQuery. See if you can find it!

ProfilerQuery 3.28.0

Another minor enhancement.

Sometimes a problem can lead to an "aha" moment. I suspected that I my local online list had been corrupted, and I knew that if I deleted (or rename) it, Profiler would download a fresh new online list file.

When I opened the directory that holds the online list (Appdata\Local\DVD Profiler), my eyes fell upon two other files in that diectory; COOs.xod and localities.xod. So my inner voice - the one that hasn't learned to shut up - asked me why I use hardcoded values for Country of Origin and Locality when I populate the dropdown lists in the selection. And my inner voice didn't wait for a reply, it said "Because you're stupid!". I have a rude inner voice. 

Anyway, I realized that my inner voice was (partly) right, so I set about to correct that limitation.



So, the next time you're looking for titles from, say Kyrgyzstan, you don't have to remember how it's spelled. It'll be there for you to select.

You probably won't see any difference in Localities. I think the hardcoded values covered all the current ones. But the upside is that if Ken ever adds new localities, you'll see them in ProfilerQuery. And the same goes for Countries of Origin, of course.

By the way, if ProfilerQuery cannot find COOs.xod and localities.xod, the old hardcoded values will be used instead.

Hi Gunnar
I downloaded and installed the latest version today and it proved invaluable in identifying profiles in which Television was a genre.  I had previously gone through my database but the program showed that i had overlooked about two dozen.  I wasn't aware that it interacted directly with Profiler but at some point it let me know that Profiler didn't seem to be running.  After starting Profiler double clicking on a list entry led me to the Profile in most but not all cases.  I think where the associated Profile didn't display were those which I had manually entered.  By selecting the tab that showed images no images were displayed but I was able to see the Title which was all I needed.  Thanks for the great program!
