Pretty much nothing works on XP - the obvious exception being foobar itself.

It's about time people let it go.  :o

Hmmm, a very bizarre statement. I've got everything I need running fine on XP. Even foobar and a ton of plugins, VSTs, etc.:


All works great.

Except of course images in foo_uie_biography.

I keep an older comp with XP and it suites my needs perfectly. Not going to "let it go" because someone says so because "nothing works" on it lmao. ;)

XP to me represents the last version of windows that didn't really have too much anti-user stuff in it. Now, it seems everything is going anti-user. Windows 10, Mozilla, etc., all (try) to take away power and control from users while claiming that things have been "improved," lmao you can't get more Orwellian than that. ;)

Anyways this is going way off topic. Of course I don't expect you or any developer to take time and effort to make any of your stuff work on XP, that would be silly. Just wanting to try and see if there's a way to get image download working again in foo_uie_biography for :)

With the exception of foo_uie_biography, none of those components require internet access so of course they still work.

But if you want to keep up accessing online services in the year 2017, you need to use something a bit newer than 16 years old. Most websites these days are enforcing the use of https through protocols that XP doesn't support.

I know this is old, but is there somewhere I can still download this from?



Your download link doesn't work. :-[

For me the download link works. I can give one more:

I have to give one more advice. If somebody uses cached files, you have to remove all old *.lmfl files from cache directory(set in Biography component settings). That files contains ![CDATA[...] markups and will not be displayed correctly.

You can edit the url to one of the following...

Or you could just install JScript Panel and use my bio script which has that menu.

Component (foo-jscript-panel) and scripts (js-marc2003) are in my sig.

when i add your jscript panel, then import bio.txt using r-click > configure > tools > import i get this error

Error: JScript Panel v2.1.7.2 ( Bio by marc2003)
JavaScript runtime error:

marc2003 probably won't respond here, even though I re-enabled his account shortly after he disabled it, just because I didn't want him to think he was unwelcome. A bit of drama occurred with a moderator, and rather than cool off, marc2003 decided to rage quit the forum. I do not even follow his Github, if it still exists, to see whether he still updates his scripts.

Just for your information, you replied to a post from two years ago, and the poster hasn't visited this forum in almost a year.

with fix for "#apos;"  issue

I know this is a longshot but can anyone reupload foo_uie_biography 4.2.5 with the "#apos;" fix? All the links are dead. I've been using a portable version of foobar2000 for a very long time and would rather not go through the hassle of updating everything for a very minor fix.

You are mistaken.

Yes. You are right. I did not test it thoroughly and made a mistake.  There is no need to use Wireshark, you can check it directly from browser using API request:
and it did not work at the time I was checking it.
Second I forgot about cache of Biography component. Coincidence this two has led me to wrong conclusion that this is a culprit.

You gave me a hint and I had one more look at this issue and found a solution. A real one this time :).
It used to be <![CDATA[...]]> markup in XML that exist no more in API response. Fortunately it can be corrected using hexeditor as well. All bytes <![CDATA[...]]> should be filed with zeros so component puts nothing in this place.
Fixed Biography component:
-bytes <![CDATA[...]]> changed to 00
-version change from  to
and it DOES work this time.

Or can someone explain how to hex edit the dll?


foobar version 2.1 and biography view version

Reply #865

when i updated to version 2.1. the old biography view does not work anymore. In 2.0 everything works.
Have anyone an idea for a solution?
