InvalidCastException - Conversion from string "x.y" to type 'Double' is not valid

From TimeSnapper
Jump to: navigation, search

If you get a "Conversion from string "0.6" to type 'Double' is not valid" when opening the Day Browser, follow these steps to fix the problem:


This is related to the Day browsers Zoom level! Currently it set to 0.6 but due to regional settings changes (probably), it should be 0,6 (comma instead of a dot).

To fix it, follow the following steps:

Restart TimeSnapper

Go to Help -> About

Right click the TimeSnapper logo and select "Run Command"

Paste in the following line into the dialog box that just opened:

Update options set val = '1' where name = 'DayBrowserZoomLevel'

And click OK.

Now you should be able to open the day browser again!
