Hi,

I had suffered the "bundled applications error" documented here: http://www.bci2000.org/tracproj/ticket/180; in a Windows 8.1 machine with IDE Visual Studio 2012 and BCI2000 release 5158.

Although BCI2000 v3.6 beta version "BCI2000.x64.bundled" binaries give the same error again (as could be expected), "BCI2000.x64" binaries work perfectly, so I think it could be solved.

As a request, I would appreciate a BCI2000 v3.6 beta version source code. Could you make it available?

Regards,
Víctor.

@Victor: You can find the source for this beta of BCI2000 at http://www.bci2000.org/svn/trunk.

We seem to be experiencing an issue with the load_bcidat.mexmaci64, wherein it loads dat files recorded with old versions of BCI2000 but not the 3.6 beta. The mexw32 and mexw64 binaries appear to be capable of loading dat files recorded with 3.6.

Windows: Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586
Visual Studio: Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop Version 11.0.61219.00 Update 5

You already know about the app bundling problem in Windows 8 and 10, but here is a more detailed error message (when trying to build Release 32) in case you don't have a Windows 10 system to test on:

Code: Select all

I get about 50 of these, almost one for each target.

After disabling the USE_APPLICATION_BUNDLES option in cmake-gui, I was able to build everything without issue, even my custom source module. I tested it and the signal generator with Cursor Task and Stimulus Presentation. Everything worked as expected. I noticed that there was a bit of variance in block time (+- 15 msec) when using the signal generator but almost none when using my source module. I'm guessing the cause of this is that the hardware I'm using has better timing resolution than whatever sleep function is being used by signal generator.

I don't really have the time to do any more than that right now.

P.S. I like how the default cursor now rolls (even in the 2D task). It would make more sense if the default 2D targets also had a 3D appearance (blocks to run into) or if they were textured to look like goal zones. The mixture of 3D and 2D elements may be a minor distraction to some participants.

P.P.S. I don't really like building in source when using cmake because it is often difficult to change cmake settings without deleting a bunch of files, but it's difficult to know which files to delete and which to keep when building in source. Currently, using the provided scripts, the easiest way to 'clean' the cmake output is to delete the whole build directory then svn update, but this is a bit annoying and not so fast. I typically make a sub-directory (i.e. BCI2000\build\vsprojects\) and then call cmake-gui .. -G "<generator>" -D<Options>=ON. This is nice because I can then just delete the directory and try again. It would be great if the provided scripts also used a subdirectory for the cmake build directory. You'll notice this is very handy if/when you migrate to git (please?) because it is simpler to add an ignore rule for the subdirectory than for each specific file that cmake outputs.

hi everyone,
I have looked every where for the release of the ant Neuro, but I dont seem to be able to find it. I wanted to test it to see if this version works better than mine.
I would appreciate any help
Kind regards, and happy holidays

Re: BCI2000 v3.6 beta test

Post by ageronimo » 22 Dec 2015, 17:36

Summary of my testing of the R5181 binaries:

For all the executables in each of the four versions of the binaries, i get security warnings (which i can disable after the first time) and symantec warnings (which show up every time run a batch file). Symantec doesnt automatically quarantine anything, but it really wants to. in the first iteration of the 3.6 binaries, i got automatic quarantines for the x32 binaries, but no Symantec errors for the x64 binaries.

For both sets of the bundled binaries, i get the error that Operator.exe is not a valid application bundle. Does not get to loading the source, processing, or application modules.

The binaries I am able to open (the non-bundled ones) pretty much destroy my computer by the third run. This is because the application module (CursorTask, P3Speller, StimulusPresentation) hovers around 25% CPU on the first run, 50% CPU on the second run, and 75% CPU on the third run. I dont have to press "Set Config" for this to happen. By the third run, I have to turn it off really fast, or it freezes so badly I have to restart the computer. This happens with every batch file i tested for both the x32 and x64 binaries.

In the runs which i did manage to test the TobiiX eye tracker, data records fine. But i will need to test more when the system is not as frustrating to operate :)

Edit: The version of R5181 I built from source using "Make VS2012 Win64 Project Files", with USE_APP_BUNDLES disabled works like a charm

Andrew,

thanks for the detailed testing.

Can you detail your system configuration, i.e., Windows version, CPU, graphics card, etc.

Also to narrow down the issue, can you temporarily disable Symantec? I suspect that this may interfere. If this doe not resolve it, I may need to debug the issue on your machine via TeamViewer. Let me know if this would be possible.

Regards, Peter

Hey folks,

Another bug to report. Is this the better place to have them, or should they be put into the bugtracker?

* Lowercase "caption" text in stimulus presentation results in visual artifacts when the caption is concealed; specifically from the bits of text that hang-under the line -- See the little white bits in the image below that are leftover from the previous stimulus.

It's probably been this way for a long time; I've just been using caps for my caption text for a long time.

EDIT: Ignore the asterisk in the bottom of the image, that's a custom addition and not what I'm talking about

Griffin,

thank you for reporting this bug. The newest BETA R5207 should fix this issue. If you get the chance could you please download the binaries (see above) and verify that this is the case? Thanks!

Hi,

when trying to run the "MatlabDemo_SignalGenerator" batch, I can start BCI2000 and also do "Set Config", but after clicking "Start", I get the following error message:

Unexpected number of fields in bci_States
Aborting current run.


The other demos work just fine.

System: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
Matlab: 2014a 64 bit
BCI2000: beta.R5207 (x64.extensions.bundled)


I also ran a custom BCI2000 application with Matlab Signal Processing, which worked with the "old" version of BCI2000.
There I also get the same error.

Best,
Martin

Hi All,

I still have issues with antivirus. It allows me to run the modules, but it requests permission EVERY TIME :(
Errors in ParallelPort Filter prevent anything from running though.

Here are my notes from testing

Andrew,

thanks for the very detailed test report.

two workaround for the issues that you are experiencing:

(1) "Open File - Security Warning": Please uncheck the "Always ask before opening this file" checkbox. This will remove the dialog the next time you start BCI2000.

(2) Symantec Endpoint Protection - Download Insight: There is unfortunately no other way than to manually add the binaries or download URL to Symantec Endpoint Protection as detailed in the article below. This is an inherent problem as the Download Insight feature will only let you run software that is widely used.
https://support.symantec.com/en_US/arti ... 80966.html

(3) Can you please also verify that your path to the BCI2000 binaries is not on a network share. Both Windows and Symantec Endpoint Protection treat files on network shares as more suspicious than files on the local hard drive (i.e,. the boot drive).

We will fix the parallel port autoconfigure issue and issue another beta version this week. In the meantime, can you please try to see whether the "not a valid bundle" error persists if you disable Symantec Endpoint Protection on your machine?

Regards, Peter

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately I cannot disable Symantec on my computer. I imagine having a computer dedicated to BCI work that is not on the University/Medical Center's network would be the way to handle this.

The binaries I am testing are being downloaded to the desktop on the C: drive.

I've tested R5225 the same way. Here are my notes.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxP5i8 ... sp=sharing

Symantec is a problem for the non bundled applications. For the .x32.bundled, i get the "Not a valid bundle" error. For the .x64.bundled, i still have errors within ParallelPortFilter

Two more bugs:

1. If an initialized system that has a hidden operator window is "reset", the entire system closes and Operator.exe finishes execution. If Operator.exe has a visible window, it doesn't finish execution.

The expected behavior is that Operator.exe remains open and the remote session can continue after a 'reset system' command.

To replicate: open BCI2000Shell and enter the following commands

Code: Select all

Reset system
Startup system localhost

Start executable SignalGenerator --local 
Start executable DummySignalProcessing --local 
Start executable DummyApplication --local  

Wait for Connected  
Set Config

Reset System
 -- ( Operator.exe finishes execution )

Version
 -- ( BCI2000Shell terminates because there's no Operator )
To prevent Operator.exe from finishing execution on the 'Reset System' command, execute a 'Show Window' command before entering the aforementioned commands.

2. Events added to the operator do not propogate into the signal source module upon system startup.

To replicate: open BCI2000Shell and enter the following commands

Code: Select all

Show Window
Reset system

Add Event StimulusCode 8 0

Startup system localhost

Start executable SignalGenerator --local
Start executable DummySignalProcessing --local
Start executable DummyApplication --local

Wait for Connected

Set Config
Wait for Resting
Start
					
Set Event StimulusCode 1
					
[ ... ~2 seconds later ]
					
Set Event StimulusCode 0

[ ... ~2 seconds later ]

Stop
Then load up the resulting data file -- StimulusCode won't be represented in the states in the file.

The issue is that upon system startup, when StateMachine.cpp sends the event definition to the EventLink logger in the source module, the socket stream reads bad() and fail() upon ::getline. I can verify using Wireshark that the message is being sent to the proper port (albeit in about 10 separate UDP packets), so I don't think the issue is on the operator side ( StateMachine::EventLink::OnExecute() in StateMachine.cpp, and EventLink::Publish in EventLink.cpp)
