Great covers sell books. And with digital books, it's doubly important to capture reader attention, since the icons are small and there is so much to see at one time. A couple of places to look for quality cover designers are 2H Designs (UK) and The Book Designer (US). Whether you use those services or not, they'll give you a good idea of the types of design services out there. Self publishing for the iBookstore Apple's distribution system for the iPad is a free app called iBooks.  from the iBookstore. Apple doesn't have too many restrictions on the books that can be uploaded to the iBookstore, but individual writers are not able to directly upload titles.


In that case you must be wondering why I am Germany Phone Number List writing this guide. Well, as it turns out, Apple has appointed a number of iBookstore aggregators that are approved to submit books to the iBookstore for you. For this article I am going to focus on using Lulu. Another popular option is Smashwords. Here are some things to take into consideration before you get started with an aggregator: Cover Image. You will need a quality book cover image (JPEG) and it must be a vertical rectangle shape at least 600 pixels tall. The cover should include both the title and the author name. It cannot be a greyscale image and it cannot contain hyperlinks or web site addresses. Also, keep the image PG-13 (no nudity). Content Restrictions.



You must be the original author, or exclusive digital publisher or distributor. Apple strictly forbids content that encourages illegal activities, promotes intolerance or discrimination, invades the privacy of any person, or that slanders or libels a person or organization. Erotica that depicts underage people engaged in or witnessing sexual acts is totally off-limits, in addition to being just plain wrong. Pricing. Apple prices ebooks in 99-cent increments, so you are encouraged to do the same. ISBN. You need to get an ISBN for your ebook. Most aggregators have services that will automatically assign you one. Get your books into the iBookstore Now that you have your book edited, a cover created, your pricing set, and have had it checked for content, you are ready to use an aggregator and get your digital book into the iBookstore.

Hi,

please, keep us posted about your test and, eventually, verify the availability of an updated sound card driver from the manufacturer: a reinstall of the sound card driver could be an option as well.

Hi,

AboutBox method returns:

Component version: 11.0.0.0
Audio Engine version: 14.0.0.1
Full version

I will give it a try on another production PC with similar configuration.

Thanks

There are only 2 situations that could cause the ERR_GENERIC to be returned from that method:
- the trial version is used outside of the development machine
- one between the Windows multimedia system and the sound card driver has been damaged in some way so DirectSound is not able to properly communicate with the lower level

In order to totally exclude the first situation you may invoke the AboutBox method of the component from your code and see if the opened form states that the version is the full one or the trial one

For the second situation the only possibility would be to use a Windows restore point prior to the troublesome Windows update; you may eventually also try with a different production PC in order to see if the problem is reproduced as well.

Hope this may be of help

Kind Regards

Sure, after line

nResult = AudioSoundRecorder.StartFromDirectSoundDevice(idDev, idSource, rFileName)

nResult returns ERR_GENERIC

Hi,

this is just quite strange: if the error started after a Windows update there could be the chance that something weird happened at that time; the ERR_GENERIC in this case could be caused by something unexpected, usually something damaged inside the Windows multimedia system or inside the sound card driver. Are you able to identify the exact method call that returns the ERR_GENERIC error?

Kind Regards

Hi Severino

I forgot to mention this issue arose in a production computer, no trial files there, only files on Redist folder were installed.
In our development computer everything works just fine.

Thanks.

Hello and thanks for your feedback,

as seen in other situations, Windows upgrades will sometime delete important keys from the registry so it's likely that something similar happened again: in this specific case, if the exe returns the mentioned error, it seems that the "trial" version of the product is being used in place of the purchased version so it's likely that the "trial" version of the component is still in place and referenced by the application.

Assuming that the problem is happening inside your development machine, you should try to:
- restart Windows
- uninstall our product's package
- make a global search inside your development machine for any remaining occurrence of the following assemblies and binaries:
   - AudioSoundRecorder.dll
   - AudioSoundRecorderF4.dll
   - AdjMmsEng.dll
   - AdjMmsEng64.dll
- and delete any of these mentioned files
- try to reinstall the full version and report us if you still have problems

Hope this will help

Kind regards

Hello, my app returns error ERR_GENERIC and is unable to record after Windows 10 installed the latest upgrades (22H2). I tried with provided sample app SimpleMp3Rec and it returns the same error.
Just upgraded from version 10 to 11 but the issue remains.

Best Regards.

Hello,

interesting feature indeed. We will evaluate the possibility to implement it directly into the waveform analyzer but this may still require some month.

Kind Regards
