PassShed v2.0 (UPDATED)

Hi, all! Good to see you're back from the brief downtime.

Some of you might recall me sharing a small software application I've been working on called PassShed. If you haven't heard of it, it's a simple account/password manager I developed in C#.

I've released version 2.0 now, and I'd love for you guys to try it out. I re-coded the entire thing from scratch and gave the GUI a major overhaul. While I'm happy with the new improvements, I know it means more bugs and such. I'd love for any potential users to report bugs/annoyances/desired features to me. Here's the file:

[Current Release] Download Link (v2.0)

WARNING: You'll need to uninstall any previous versions of PassShed AND delete the C:\PassShed directory in order for version 2.0 to work. This is due to changes in the database structure and the way the installation process works. That means version 2.0 won't import your old accounts. However, if you do have a current version of PassShed installed, you will use the same master password to log in.

System Requirements
  • XP/Vista/7/8
  • .NET Framework 3.5 or above (This is included by default in 7/8. XP and Vista users will need to ensure their .NET Framework installation is upgraded to 3.5.)

Code:
PassShed
Version 2.0
BluShark Media

====Description============================
PassShed was developed to be a simple, data-driven 
solution for managing user accounts and passwords.
===========================================

====Known Bugs/Issues=======================
Bugs:
- All bugs are currently in hiding; please report any

Minor Issues/Annoyances:
- Currently subject to users

Fixed:
- When inserting, updating, or deleting a record, the Shed will always 
  navigate back to the first record (currently attempting a work-around)
- If the user adds a record belonging to category X while viewing category Y, 
  the Shed does not navigate to category X (currently attempting a work-around)
============================================

====ChangeLog/Release Notes================

- Re-coded from scratch
- GUI Overhaul
  * New layout
  * New icons added
  * Status label added to keep the user informed

- GUI tweaks
  * The delete button now rests peacefully beside each record for convenience
  * "Add" button renamed to "Add Category"
  * "New" button renamed to "Clear"
  * "Save" button renamed to "Insert"
- User can no longer insert completely blank records
- If the user adds a record in category X while viewing category Y, PassShed
  will automatically navigate to category X
- Cleaned up/optimized code (no, seriously... big overhaul)

v1.2 (6/16/13)
- Drastically improved security features
- Redesigned installer to support keeping settings/data when uninstalling/reinstalling
- After adding/updating a record, it is now automatically selected in the Shed
- Moved the About button to the bottom right corner

That's actually coming along pretty good. I haven't seen anything that does not work. It's pretty simple and easy to use IMO. Good job!

Thanks, Scott. You've always been my 3rd biggest fan (relative to your level of support... Not your physical size). I'll probably use that testimonial to justify selling this for $70,000.

While we're on this subject, does anyone have ideas for other projects? I'm still looking to develop for the desktop scene until I get up to speed with ASP.NET or Java.

Something I've been looking for is a program that essentially allows you to create records of all your possessions, being able to add description, size, images etc for insurance purposes if the house were to be hit by natural disaster, burglary, arson etc...

I'm not aware of any software that deals with this specifically properly and I reckon if done properly there would be commercial potential :-)

At the moment I use a really dodgy solution through forum software with forums for each room of the house and threads for each piece lol.

Yup, this what I used to do but I'm nowhere near organized enough and after a while it was a huge mess, what with the different information you want to hold for each item. Definately a PEBKAC issue rather than software :-)

I use KeePass for that sort of stuff. It also allows multiple attachments for each record which is nice for holding copies of receipts and manuals.

Yes I'm sure it's one I used to use many years ago, it has a Breakdown Journal Type entry system divided into Home/Office with each room or class of item categorized IE Study Kitchen Electrical Multi-Media Vehicles Insurance etc...

Fine. Let's just promote superior software in a thread pleading for PassShed testers.

Nobody likes me. I'm just going to go program myself into a never-ending loop and never reappear again.

A slight diversion my friend. Your post is very interesting, that is probably why we have digressed, is all.

But here is the script if you need it.

if eq(v1,1) then
killssn(player)
else
set(v1,1)
endif

If v1 is initialized at 0, then the script will not do anything after setting it to 1. Therefore, I will remain alive and well while you guys talk about PassShed's superior competition.

You are forgetting the "else" command.

So if said state is not V1,1 then "else" will set the variable to v1,1 closing the loop. - poop! Goodbye

I understand now. The "if" statement would be nested inside a loop. You also need an "exit loop" statement to get out of the loop once I'm killed, or else I'll be continually killed (unless that was the goal all along).

You can nest the "if" in a loop if you wish and
you can also nest the actions but it's not needed because the type of actions and triggers in this case do not require it.

So no loop needed in this case.

We are saying "and then" not "and never then"

With just "and then" it will fire continuously.

Try it.

Second Part.

Yes it will render the game useless as you will continuously die, isn't that what you wanted?

Likely my final version (thanks for testing along the way). Now supports importing CSV files, scales better for things like Aero-snap or full-screen, and supports better keyboard shortcuts (press "Enter" to add an account).

The CSV import is nice along with the keyboard shortcuts. Why would it be your last version?

Sorta shipped that last night with a huge, not-to-be-named bug. Long night, lol. Fixed and re-upped:

PassShed v2.1 Download

Ok, that's not concrete. I suppose there are new features to add and things to improve, but I've basically completed the shell I wanted. Plus, I'm a bit tired of working on it and have a bigger project on my plate that will likely make a profit for a local business.
