Finally finished my RSS reader

It's late and I have to brag. I finally finished an RSS reader I've been working in the past few weeks for my C# programming class. It still needs some GUI work and a little code cleanup, but all the essential features are there, entering a URL, reading the feed, saving feeds locally, checking for updates, downloading and saving new articles. The project has to be submitted in a couple weeks, but if anyone would like to test it out for me I can send it to you to play around with.

Re: Finally finished my RSS reader

Ok, I still have a lot of work to do to refine the program, and you'll probably do something that will crash it. If you try it out, I'd appreciate you post what you did that made it crash so I can handle all exceptions. I haven't spent a lot of time working on exception handling for this yet. Plan on doing it this weekend.

This program will write cache files to the root of the C drive, so ensure that you have access to it.

Wow. That's awesome!
Good job! I tested it with a few feeds. I can only see a few errors. One prevents me from exiting. :(

Re: Finally finished my RSS reader

Can you tell me what the errors were and what you did to cause them? And I disabled the typical exit 'x', which is why there's a button labeled exit. This will probably change with the next update tho.

I can't exit with that button because it's saying that it is busy but nothing is doing anything. I just added one feed, viewed one post, and closed the feed window and clicked Exit.

Re: Finally finished my RSS reader

Ok. Realized the issue with my program was write permissions to the folder it was trying to write to. What I have now is more of a final product. I will be adding a couple other features, but essentially, here's the meat. Now it saves files properly by writing to the AppData folder on your computer. If you want to test the latest version, download these two installer files (there's a setup.exe and a setup.msi. You need them both in the same dir to install).

Re: Finally finished my RSS reader

It seems that I have already installed .NET framework 4 but it's telling to install it.
I have VS, myself, so I know that I have it.
Why don't you just change the necessary .NET framework from 4 to 2? That'll allow a lot more people to use it, and more quickly.
Check out this page if you are needing to know how to do that: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 90%29.aspx
I'll answer questions you have about it. From the looks of it, you won't need to change any of your code. (Just take out an Include or two.)

Re: Finally finished my RSS reader

picky picky picky... you must not have 4.0 installed cause i've had 3 other people install it (xp, vista, and 7) and they all had no issues. But here's the app as of today, should be .net 3.5
