So it looks like FMGo13 take a bit longer to close files than Go12 did. So we need to add an additional half second to our delay when distributing new versions of your mobile files: otherwise users may be told that "GoZyncMobile" is "in use".

Here's how to make the change.

It's just a timing issue but you'll want to add a nice layout for folks to look at while that pause is going on.

Everything is done in GoZyncHosted.

Create a new Layout that will display when files are installing. Base it on the "Interface" TO. The Pause is now longer so we need some thing nice to display while thats happening

Edit Script "Install Files ( GZMFilePath; MobileFilePath )"

Add a Go To Layout Step pointed at the Layout you just created. Add it in between the two steps that are there.

Increase the interval in the install on timer from .5 to 1 second.

Done! :-)

For reference, here is an example of what the script should look like when you're done editing it:


Note that if you edit this script in GoZync 5 or higher the script parameter in the first line and the timer amount in the last line may be missing and you'll need to edit each line to add these back. The script should look just like the one above when you're done, though your layout name may be different.

I'm running GZ 4.053 and had this problem with users updating to new versions using FM GO 13.
The fix described above worked for us, except I had to make the delay longer. The threshold seemed to be between 2 and 3 seconds using an iPod Mini 1st gen (A5 cpu). I left the delay at 5 seconds to be on the safe side.
