Hi,
When starting COMET search, internet connection is required. Comet does not run through when internet is at this moment not available. I guess this is only because of update check. Any possibility to avoid this? It is annoying to have stopped analyses when internet is off at some point.
Thanks
Tim

Tim,

This was a bug in Comet that was addressed in June 2018.  Use an updated version of Crux to avoid the issue.

Hi Tim,

Just to expand on Jimmy’s comments: this was fixed in Crux in June 2018, after the last major release (3.2). To obtain the most recent build, go to the Crux download page (http://crux.ms/download.html) and select the download type you want. At the bottom of the page there are two buttons: one for the 3.2 release and one for the most recent build. Click on the button for the most recent build.

Hi Jimmy, Chalres,

Thanks for the quick feedback!

I only recently downloaded crux - the following version infos are provided:
Crux version 3.2-e786b8b
====================
Comet version 2018.01 rev. 0

I am wondering why there was no more recent comet provided. I am running crux on Win64, is this an issue?

Many thanks and best wishes,
Tim

Hi Tim,

It looks like you have an older version. There are two buttons on the download page. The bottom one is labeled “I agree to the licensing terms, download the most recent build of Crux”. Be sure to click that one. When you type ‘crux version’ you should see the following information:

INFO: Beginning version.
====================
Crux version 3.2
====================
Proteowizard version 3.0.20241

Hi Charles,
Thanks, looks really similar, but good if the bug is fixed!
Are there any plans to integrate newer comet builds?
Best wishes,
Tim

We hope to release a new version of Crux using Comet 2019.01 rev. 5 in the next month or so.
