Greetings,
There’s no simple answer. For example, it starts for many other people on Leopard.

The best option is for you to bring up your Console application (it should be in Applications | Utilities, named Console), and have it up while you’re trying to run JBidwatcher. If JBidwatcher fails to launch (you are downloading the .app.tar.gz version, right?), then there may be some useful messages in the console.

But with just the information you’ve given, I have no way of answering.

Interesting result on an auction tonight: JBidWatch reported a successful snipe. However that snipe was sniped on the last second of the auction! Auction actually not won.

Some posts ago, somebody reported to be unable to fire a snipe or even do an instant bid via JBidWatcher 1.0.2 and 1.0.3pre2. Same thing is happening to me. EBay is not accepting the login for the bid/snipe and returns the login page in the log file. Here’s the respective part of the log from 1.0.3pre2:

Fri Jan 18 18:01:11 CET 2008: Bidding €7.97 on 1 item[s] of (180205714061) Nokia 8210 &Nokia 3510i - eBay

I’m connecting to ebay.de and this error is persistent. I can login, add auctions, see changes to them and all, but bidding and sniping is impossible. Ah, and shipping costs aren’t recognized anymore – neither in 1.0.2 nor 1.0.3pre2.

If I can assist you in testing fixes for this (maybe local – only ebay.de) problem, I’d be glad to help.

thx

I’m also having problems lately. I’m on the Belgian (language: Dutch) eBay site and although most things go well, every snipe seems to end in an error, regardless whether you actually win it or not. I have one bids this way, but I guess if I were to try multi-snipe, the fact tha JBidwatcher doesn’t realize the snipe was winning, will have it bid on other object in the multisnipe aswell.

Here’s the event information of a snipe that failed (actually the bid was too low in this case):

Sat Jan 26 21:34:21 CET 2008: Preparing snipe.  (1) 
Sat Jan 26 21:34:23 CET 2008: Loading bid request… (1)
Sat Jan 26 21:34:24 CET 2008: Done loading bid request, got form… (1)

Sat Jan 26 21:36:21 CET 2008: Submitting bid form. (1)
Sat Jan 26 21:36:22 CET 2008: Done submitting bid form. (1)
Sat Jan 26 21:36:22 CET 2008: Loading post-bid data. (1)
Sat Jan 26 21:36:22 CET 2008: Failed to load post-bid data. ‘Show Last Error’ from context menu to see the failure page from the post-bid page. (1)
Sat Jan 26 21:36:22 CET 2008: Unknown error sniping on GPS MIO C510E – eBay (1)

I’ve had a look at the ‘Show Last Error’ page and see HTML and Javascript code which is pretty garbled up, but does contain in the middle a header in graphics with “Place Bid” in the center, then “Hello misterke! (Not you?)” below that and a bit lower again an exclamation-sign-image with “The following must be corrected before continuing:” and on the next line “Enter EUR 120.01 or more”.

Hope this helps to figure out why JBidWatcher doesn’t recognize the failure. As indicated, I’ve also seen the same type of event-log on succesful snipes, but for that I’ve not look at the Last Error.

Kind regards,
Kurt

I’m using MacOS X 10.5.1. Whenever I bid for an item I get the “unknown error” message. When I use ‘show last error’ to find the last error it turns out I actually bid successfully, but it makes me nervous that JBW doesn’t know it! :-) I can send the error log from 1.0.2 if you’d like (~83KB). I would send one from 1.0.3pre2 but I can’t bid on your test auctions anymore because I’ve reached some limit.

Today my JBidWatcher didn’t load the interface anymore (on OS X leaopard). It does load the bird, and the progressbar goes to 2/3’s. I get the following in Console.app:

Greetings,
I suggest trying the steps outlined here:
Lost visibility to my auctions

It’s not the same problem, but it’s probably a similar one.

It looks like it’s sorted by some column, and one of the rows in that column has a currency value that JBidwatcher is having trouble recognizing.

Removing your display configuration will remove the sort column setting, and so it likely will be able to start up again.
