Fixed it. It was a syntax error in the data source. Everything is working as intended, the LPR downloader is downloading and the viewer is viewing. The worst thing is I can't for the life of me work out what is different from the last install / build. I hate fixing stuff and not knowing what I did to make it work.Did you go into the Update Instructions folder and run the two new SQL update scripts in SSMS?
Done just updated the Guide. @Sprite OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports Steps I took To Get Mine Working. ZERO Programming Experience.
Spoke too soon it turns out. Whilst it was capturing when I stopped and started, there was no indication that it was capturing every time the down loader queried open ALPRFixed it.
Any specific suggestions/areas that you think could use error handling? I've got handling around anywhere I've personally seen an error or places I suspect others might. It's been pretty rock solid, so I can't personally see where else it is needed. If you can point out specific lines that could use something though, can likely add it into future releases.I'm very happily running your app to pull in my new ALPR data for 2 cameras. I do have a couple suggestions through - for something that is expected to run all the time, there is a lack of error handling...also - would you consider moving the actual logic into a separate DLL that could continue to be used by your Windows app, but also could be leveraged from a simple Console app that could be scheduled to run every x minutes with logging?
I'm willing to help.
Personally I just put a shortcut into the start folder. Works a treat and the simple solutions are often the best.I'm not sure where to start in making this a service / moving it into a DLL. Probably not an effort I'm going to undertake personally in the foreseeable future.
Possibly - that is an interesting find! I used to store show color, but OpenALPR removed that from the free and cheaper licenses. Interesting that the underlying data is still stored locally, and they just hide it from the online portal / csv download.Ok so this may be a stupid question, an apologies if it is, but I have taken a look at the local webserver at localhost:8355

Now if I click image I get a photo of the capture
If I click meta I get a page of JSON results which includes the registration, but it also includes the vehicle colour and description. Would there be a way to download that data into the LPR viewer?
Wow, So all along Openalpr color of the vehicle was there seems like pretty interesting stuffPossibly - that is an interesting find!

I'll post an update when I next spend time on this.
I am also using some custom Icons for downloader and viewerSo I thought I would upgrade my icons for the downloader and viewer as a bit of a homeage to @Gymratz because he won't let us buy him beer.

The icon files I used are attached if you want to do the same.
Also I've been playing with thunderbird's message alert plug in, essentially attempting to send a Blue Iris alert when an email is received regarding a car on the alert list. Not working so far because whilst the alert fires if I test the setting manually, it doesn't appear to recognise the emails when they are moved into the subfolder.
I was thinking though, if you were looking to add further functionality, could you add a box in the viewer which allows you to execute a program or batch file? That way you could push alerts with html instructions to BI, in much the same way that @GentlePumpkin 's AI tool sends alerts to BI.
