PM 28 & KeeFox/KeePass

Unread postby 1210_bex » Sun, 05 Aug 2018, 20:43

I have run KeeFox & KeePass on PM for years, and currently run them on PM 27.9.4 (32 bit), on Windows 7 Pro SP1.

The latest versions that will run on PM are:
KeePass 2.38
KeePassRPC 1.4.4.0
KeeFox 1.4.8.1-signed

I recently downloaded PM 28.0.5 [portable 32 bit], and installed ONLY KeeFox--no other add-ons. But there is a problem, because something is not loading correctly. On the attached, The Option screen for KeeFox should look like the top right image. But on PM 28, it looks like the bottom image.

Has anyone on the development team run into this problem? It is not related to running PM Portable, because for testing I have run PM since Ver 26 as 32 bit portable with KeeFox installed on the portable version (and KeePass on my primary computer), and never had a problem.

Actually, I think you probably downloaded PM 28.0.0b5. There is no 28.0.5 version yet. This is important because the "b" there indicates this is a beta version, since PM 28 is still the unstable branch and has not been officially released yet.

Also, please take a look at this announcement:

Due to changes between PM 27 and PM 28, extensions might need to be modified to work properly with PM 28.

You are correct. Not everyone seems to use the complete extension in this forum, so I did not. I'll remember to do better next time.

Thanks for reminding me of that post. I did remember seeing it sometime in the past, but forgot how to get to it.

KeeFox 1.4.8.1-signed is compatible with PM through 27. It is not on the PM Add-ons->Extensions list, so perhaps it is not 'approved' as such. Although I did not mention it, I ran another test where I installed all of the other 30+ add-ons I use with PM 27x, many of which are not on the PM 'approved' list. They all work with PM 28.0.0b5.

I know it is a lot of work to create a new version of software. And I assumed that one reason for releasing 'beta' versions was to expand the number of volunteers who do the testing. I understand that this problem might be with KeeFox, but it also might be with PM.
