G'Day all. First off - terrific piece of software - absolutely love it! I've been syncing about 6 RSS feeds and 2 podcast feeds without issue for the last few weeks until I added one more RSS feed.... Since then, I consistently get the following error:

BeyondPod Encountered an error and needs to close!
Error: An error message cannot be displayed because an optional resource assembly containing it cannot be found.

This message is repeated twice and then the program self-closes. I've tried re-installing the program but I keep encountering the same problem. Log .txt file attached...

For what it's worth, here's the feed that I was attempting to add:


When I had another look at the feed URL in beyondpod, I noticed that it truncated the above URL and cut off everything after flight-cc. I've since gone back into Beyondpod and edited the feed to include the balance of the address however I'm not anywhere near a service area for my phone and haven't been able to try it again....

I am also getting this message. One feed in particular is causing this issue. It is a feed imported from Google Reader that is a "Shared Items" feed from another Google reader user. Please email me offline if you need more data. (I am running the latest version of beyond pod, v2.8.0 on a Treo 800w running Windows Mobile 6.1)

Just to be clear, it causes the application to crash.. so it might be worth assigning a higher priority than low.

Can you e-mail the feed you are having problems with to support at beyondpod.mobi. For some reason codeplex has trouble send in you an offline e-mail.

The feed seems to work fine on my device. This is what I used:
Are you still having problems with it?

G'Day Skyntchev,

In answer to your question - yes. Try as I might, Beyondpod will not let me delete the troubling feed without crashing the program. What I've done as a short-term fix is to change the category of the affected feed to something other than a 'favourite' then added another version of the same feed (with the correct URL this time) and categorised the new one as a favourite. I've then changed my preferences to not look at any feeds other than my 'favourites' and when I update, I only updated the current category (i.e., favourites). So even though the affected feed is still resident, my preferences basically ignore it so as to maintain functionality of Beyondpod without crashing constantly. If I attempt to update, delete or even look at it the affected feed, Beyondpod consistently crashes..... Updating to 2.8.0 had no affect on this issue....

Do you think you can send me your TrackState.xml file (from BeyondPod's install directory on your device). This is the file that contains the feeds you subscribe and will help me debug and resolve the issue. Porbably there is something in this file that confuses BeyondPod and I really want to find out what is it. (I hate crashes!).

I can probably fix it and send it back to you.

Forgot to mention in the previous post - you can send your TrackStarte.xml file to support at beyondpod.mobi

Sure thing Stefan - I'll fire it off to the email address provided.

Lots of crashes on winmo 6.1 / mogul. Usually while reading an article in a feed, and all of the sudden the app will just shutdown. Not sure if the trackstate.xml file helps or not, but it is attached.

I also notice that on some feeds (like engadget) when i mark an article read, I get an message that says 'Internet Explorer' The address is not valid. Check the address and try again.
