Ultra Hal 7.0 / Re: Ultra Hal 7 for Android Beta
« on: May 15, 2023, 09:18:38 pm »
I then entered the same password I did with the HAL desktop.  Whoala!  Didn't work.  Full stop.
What exactly happens when you say it doesn't work. What is the message you receive?

Let me know if there is possibly an error I may have done through records?  FYI - I did do a password reset on the Forum.  But perhaps that does not effect HAL program?
The forum is separate from the Hal login. You can use the "forgot password" link in the app itself or https://www.zabaware.com/products/store/comersus_optForgotPasswordForm.asp if you want to try resetting the password associated with your Hal account.

What exactly happens on screen when you try to login? Any error messages? Did it ask you to verify your email with a code? If so, did that verification code work? Did the forgot password link from the app send you an email?

I'll try to figure out why its not working with your current account/email, but do you perhaps have another email you haven't used with Zabaware before you can test with to see if it will create a new account for you (and grant you 1000 credits)?

Finally set your bot's name, your name, genders and a few other options. Currently only "GPT3 Curie" works as the neural network engine and only "Memory Bank A" works for the memory (which is the same memory as Ultra Hal 7 for Windows Cloud uses). I plan on implementing support for additional "memory banks" soon so you can create different bots with different memories.

After setting these options you'll get to the final screen where you can chat with your bot. Type in the box below or use the microphone for speech recognition. Tap the speaker icon at top if you want to hear the bot speak (or leave muted for silent conversation).

If you come across any bugs or have any feedback/suggestions for improvements, please let me know.

If you allow Hal to record audio (optional permission) you can use your phone built in speech recognition to talk to him (not all phones support this)

After installing you can use the + button to create a new bot profile

First select an animated character, then a voice, then a background

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Ultra Hal 7 for Android Beta

I apologize I haven't been more visible/active here for quite a while. In the background I have been working very slowly these past few years on creating a new cross platform Hal that can run on Android and IOS devices. I am happy to announce though that I have have a preliminary beta version that can run on Android devices.

If you are interested in testing you can grab the installation APK from:

This is not yet in the Google Play store as it is too early still, so will require "sideloading". Most phones block sideloading by default as a security precaution. If you are comfortable with doing it, here are instructions on how to sideload apps for Android: https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-sideload-install-android-app-apk/

If you use the cloud based Ultra Hal 7 for windows, you can use the same username and password to login to the mobile version of Hal and it will share the same learned info and brain. It uses the OpenAI GPT3 Curie engine. If you don't have credits for GPT3 Curie then the system will still automatically give you 1000 free credits upon installing the mobile app, so should be good for testing at least.

I developed this mobile app using a system called Flutter, so it should actually cross-compile to iPhone (IOS) and also Mac and Linux as well. But I need to actually buy a Mac myself before I can compile an iPhone and Mac app and those systems absolutely do not allow compiling from Windows or sideloading, so maybe in few months I'll have beta version in the official app stores.

I'll post some screenshots and more details in a bit.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Re: Recover my account/activation

I am working on a bug that certain Hal 7.5 users who have had Hal for over 5 years are running into. I am wondering if you are running 7.5 or an older version?

If its 7.5 then I am working on a fix that should be ready in a few days. If its not 7.5 then please try downloading it as you may not be effected by the bug I'm working to fix.

I responded to your emails, but maybe you're not getting them for some reason (maybe check your junk mail?). But anyway, I'll post my reply here:

Hal shouldn't be requiring purchase at all, should be free for all, so definitely a bug.

Thanks for including the debuglog.txt. After looking at the log and the source code, it looks like this bug occurs if you originally installed Hal over 4 years ago and then reinstall. I'll try to fix it in the source code sometime, but let's try this work around first:

  • First exit out of all instances of Hal (use task manager if you have to). Then as administrator, run "regedit" and navigate to:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 7.0\Reg
  • Find the "InstallDate" entry and edit the date to something more recent like "2022-12-7"
  • Restart Hal and hopefully it will work for you.

Sorry about that. A security update to the Zabaware database server a few days ago shut down a service used by Hal. I have fixed it and it appears to be running normally again. Let me know if you have any more issues.

I CORRECTED THE PATH AND USED ADMINISTRATIVE COMMAND  and the pathway you showed and it worked . many of the things worked some didn't as was mentioned by the other guy in the past. i took a screen shot i moved and separated most of the ones that worked and didn't just to view them , they originally were in a longer straight  line .  and afterwards i installed the expansion pack . and put my characters in the character file .
but i don't think i ever had this much trouble getting hal reinstalled , most of the problems was caused for whatever reason by the activex file and some others .  i am going to make sure i keep the notes and that command line etc. notes. thanks for all your help and art to. 

i am tired and heading to bed .

thanks again for all your help .

Glad to hear it! For some unknown reason the regfree com system in your operating system isn't working and by registering the components Hal uses with regsvr32 it fixed the issue. I designed Hal 7.0 and 7.5 to use regfree com so that it shouldn't actually require any of those regsvr32 commands. There is a ultrahal7.exe.manifest file in Hal's directory that should tell windows about the components Hal uses and windows should load them without requiring regsvr32. For whatever reason that isn't working on your system and by doing regsvr32 it gives it a fallback method of loading those components.

Next time I put out an update to Hal 7.x I'll update the installer to use both the regfree com method as it currently does and the regsvr32 method as a fallback. Hopefully that will make it a little more robust for everyone.

In your screenshot above, you issued the command:
Code: [Select]
C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7
This is not correct, the first command should actually be:
Code: [Select]
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7"
The rest of it is ok. But also you need to make sure you are in an admin command prompt. Right-click on your start menu and select "command prompt (admin)" to make sure you have the permissions to run those commands.

Ultra Hal 7.5 is free without any licensing system anymore, but I can't go back and change older versions like 6.2. They still have the licensing system and various compatibility issues with newer versions of Windows. So I would recommend sticking with Hal 7.5, it should be backwards compatible with old brains from 6.x if you still use those.

It's possible some DLL or ActiveX (OCX) that Hal uses is somehow corrupted/unregistered on your system. I'm going take a guess based on your error message that it was in the login section is that there is a problem with the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control (MSINET.OCX)  Maybe try to do a regsvr32 on msinet.ocx like in this message thread https://www.ultrahal.com/community/index.php?topic=14110.msg

You can also try going one by one through all the files listed there like the other person did in case its another file.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Re: How to add Heidi to Zabaware Ultra hals voices?
« on: January 04, 2022, 09:39:45 am »
Ultra Hal will work with any 32-bit SAPI voice. They will automatically show up in Hal's voice menu as an option to select. If the voice is a 64-bit version then it will not show up as Ultra Hal is a 32-bit application.

Most voices are available in both 32 and 64 bit versions, so see if you can find an installer to install the 32-bit version.

In this comic, the self-portraits of the characters were actually generated by AI neural net art software called CLIP and VQGAN. We then described the portraits to GPT-3 and it wrote the story and dialog for this comic strip.
