I can’t get bidwatch to open Mozilla on my wifes machine. Mozilla is the default browser. It will launch from the command line. Here is what is in the error log.

The machine is win 98se mozilla 1.6. It will launch IE fine. Java seems to be set up the same as on my machine and it works with firebird browser. It may be in the way java is setup.

Is there a guide to setting up java runtime that should be followed?

I like this program a lot and hope you can get it sorted out. Also it will not import selling items. Don’t think that is related but just in case it is watch items works fine.

Thanks Don

Greetings,
Yeah, I’ve got a fix for the ‘selling items’ problem. The other is strange… If you go to a command-line window, and type:

DIR C:\\PROGRA~1\\MOZILLA.ORG\\MOZILLA\\MOZILLA.EXE

does it find a file?

Thanks for the reply.
DIR C:\\PROGRA~1\\MOZILLA.ORG\\MOZILLA\\MOZILLA.EXE

The computer name specifide in the network path cannot be located

If I leave out the \\ and put in \ it does find the file. Not familiar with the \\ will have to look that up.

Hope you are felling better. Don

Ok now I have broken mine too. I upgraded to firefox and my bidwatcher can’t launch it. I think it may have to do with popup blocking. But that is just a guess.

Thanks Don

OK I figured it out. For some reason you need to put "" like this “C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~2\FIREFOX.EXE” -url “%1” . This does not break IE 6. Hope this gets to you in time for the next version.
Thanks again for a great program.
