Jack App-Store Asking for AppDir? Won't Work - Any Ideas?

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to get the Jack App-Store to work. I always get a connection error when I try to sign up and the application just gets stuck in some routine after I try searching for anything or getting a list.

It is looking for AppDir when it starts up and I assumed it's referring to EnvArc:AppDir, but after trying to assign the that location, it doesn't accept my assignment as a correct drawer.

Any help that you have would be greatly appreciated, there are just so many libraries that I run into that haven't made their way onto OS4Depot and I was hoping I may could find them there...

Thanks!

The AppDir: assign and functionality is managed by the APPDIR-Handler. In a correct AmigaOS 4.1 installation (unless you're running an ancient, pre-Update 1 system), AppDir: should be up and running right after booting the system.

APPDIR: is a virtual volume full of softlinks, it's virtual because it doesn't
physically exist on a real disk anywhere, just like RAM: and ENV: filesystems.

APPDIR: contains only softlinks that point to various locations on the media,
it means that any application that has been run at least once,
will have an APPDIR: entry created dynamically that allows you to find it
and other applications anywhere simply by refering to "APPDIR:foobar"
where "foobar" is the name of the program.

APPDIR: is NOT an assignment, even though it may initially appear to work
like one, an assignment is something else more limited and completely
different that allows you to create fixed references to somewhere else
on a disk. APPDIR: works across any number of disks and can reset
itself to new paths automatically, it does not require manual intervention
unlike assignments, which have to be manually created in your startup
-sequence or user-startup files.

The contents of the ENVARC:AppDir/ are just environmental variable files
that store the paths for the handler to build the APPDIR: virtual disk of softlinks.
The appdir-handler maintains those environmental variables automatically,
it also flushes entries that no longer exist or have invalid paths, once every two months, it flushes unused entries once a year.

APPDIR: has been built into dos.library and mounted on boot, since version
53.25 (2009-06-06).
