How to add multiple instances of the same apps in UI7
« on: August 13, 2014, 03:52:08 pm »
I want to add yet another instance of the app Virtual Switch, but I can't figure out how to do this with UI7?

Virtual On/Off Switches: http://apps.mios.com/plugin.php?id=1408

Any suggestions?

You can do it under Apps > Develop Apps > Create device menu.
You need to provide Upnp Device Filename (D_VSwitch.xml) and Upnp Implementation Filename (I_VSwitch.xml).

One can only hope this isn't the long term solution :-)

I'm sure it isn't. I've written a lot of software and things have a way of coming together very quickly so I'm sure this will too.

I'm just disappointed in UI7 overall so far. Seems like a lot of energy for a few cosmetic gains but I haven't been involved in it so there may be a lot under the covers.

I'm also a bit disappointed with it. Looking forward to finally get some major and minor fixes.
Anyway, it's almost a week since Andrei's post and no new release have shown up. Seems MCV is using some other meaning of "very soon" ;)

Umm, you're new here, right? MCV has a different concept of time than the rest of the world. I'm beginning to think they're from an alternate dimension.

Thought so. I'll have to get used to it...

Personally I would like to see them picking off issues one at a time and releasing frequent patches/updates.  Maybe it is harder than I think.  I wonder if the vera programmers are also working on other Mios projects?
