Topic: Problems with 2.5.5-0

Try rolling back your version of Java and then make sure that Java doesn’t update itself.

Topic: Problems with 2.5.5-0

I’m on MacOSX 10.8.5 and my current list keeps changing on it’s own accord, moving incomplete auctions to the complete column even though there are days until auction end. Also strange null entries in all columns. Totally unreliable as is. For the last few versions my complete list, which is quite long, would only display correctly if I very slowly scrolled to the bottom and back up to the top.

I’m also getting duplicate entries. I just lost my current list for the 3rd time. all entries went to “nul” then disappeared. The program is slow now when I click on the complete tab; I get the price in the lower right corner rapidly flashing when I select a completed auction.
It’s a nightmare.
There is so many problems with this release that I cannot rely on it anymore and I have used it reliably since 2008.
How do I get a copy of 2.5.4?

I also seem to be getting duplicate entries in my SQL database :-(

Are you on Windows? 7? 8? linux? Please tell us what OS and configuration etc. that’s pertinent so we all can share the experiences.

I have OS X 10.9.1 running on MBP core i7 and I don’t have duplicated tabs, I have postings of mostly improvements from prior version such as all my thumbnails are there, and all listings are working, and I am just going to test sniping.

Recovered tab was never there when I first installed JBW, only on 2nd restart of the program. But I do not have duplicate tabs.

I did start from a complete new install, no prior data files.

Maybe you can try a clean fresh install, and fetch a fresh token from eBay, and load from My eBay and load your selling items fresh, and let us know what happens….

Topic: Problems with 2.5.5-0

The number of recover tabs has now expanded to five, but I am once again able to enter auction numbers and place bids. However, there are apparently many problems with this release, so I hope that one or more users has a work around, or the developer will be kind enough to come out with a quick release fixing the problems. Unfortunately, I have not heard either. As i can now again enter eBay IDs and bid, there is no reason to leave JBidwatcher, but the continuing growth of “recovered” columns is worrisome.

Topic: Problems with 2.5.5-0

The latest version of JBidwatcher has had numerous problems for me. (1) I now see three recovered tabs, (2) One of these tabs has multi-screen entries, which apparently cannot be deleted, (3) I cannot add any new auctions and when I try am moved to one of the “recovered” tabs but the new entry is not shown.

I tried downloading the software, and re-installing, I even did a system restore. However, all the issues mentioned above continue to persist. It could be my data for JBidwatcher has been corrupted, but as I have not had this problem with the earlier versions, this version seems to have serious issues.

Any suggestions on how to “work around” these problems would be appreciated.

I found the run dropdown after right clicking the icon in the start file and going into properities. It is under the shortcut tab. I selected it but it doesn’t seem to want to make jbird open minimized. – Appreciate your help anyway.

Howdy doomkrad, I appreciate you lending a hand. I right clicked on the icon in the starup file and went into properties but didn’t see a ‘Run:’ area with a dropdown list. There were other tabs like general, security,compatibility ect.
I have the “minimize to system tray” option checked in the configuration manager of the program, but it initially opens as a window until you minimize it to the system tray manually. I am running Windows 7 and have jbidwatcher 2.1.5
Thanks

Topic: Feature request or Help

When I set up snipes to occur several days away, I want JBidwatcher to be open when my computer restarts in the morning (so I don’t forget to open it myself on the day the auction ends). I put JBidwatcher in my start up file and it opens when windows starts up. Great, but what I don’t want is the program sitting open on my desktop with the auctions I am sniping available for anyone to see when I come in first thing in the morning. Maybe you could add a selection that minimizes the program to the taskbar when the program first opens. That way I can set up a snipe and forget about it.

Thanks

Topic: Still trying --- Actually - I figured it out !!!

I put in my ebay info and email address and when I click save, I get the message " Jbidwatcher can’t access its database. Please check to see if you are running in another instance." This is what has happened all last night and today when I try to make it work. I get this message every single time. Thanks again.

I finally fixed it. I had to delete all of Java – then re-install Java. Then I cleared evry trace of Jbid off my computer. Then I started a new download of Jbid – and it worked. Some traces of Jbid were still hung up and alive in Java – and this was causing the error message about my Jbid being open in another instance. Thanks for your help.

Topic: Not sniping

Greetings,
Yes, eBay rolled out a bid confirmation page to some subset of users that no longer used the key embedded in the form as the verification method. JBidwatcher didn’t recognize those forms as valid bid confirmation pages, so it failed to place the bid.

I’ve got a fix for that, as well.

The strange thing is.. it successfully sniped on Oct 31, Nov 2, and Nov 3.
Now.. notice the wacky timestamps on the bid history. The winning bid was somehow entered on the 9th… my bids were somehow placed 30 minutes after the auction closed (if I’m reading that right). ??

Topic: Not sniping

Hi Morgan,

I too had problems bidding with the old program, and following the thread here installed 2.1.3pre1.
The last attempt with the new prog. failed with no snipe.
All completed bids show as (FP) with dashes in the max price column.
I have a very large failure page from the bid attempt which I will email to you – Its far too big to post here I think.
Does anyone else still have problems or am I the only one?

Any feedback much appreciated,

Topic: Not sniping

Hi Morgan and Mike,

I just had the same problem as Mike. 2.1.2 launches ok but failed to bid – it just seemed to sit there and not bid.
The log below talks about the app prepairing and then cancelling a snipe – I don’t understand because it worked fine on the 27th of Oct.

Any suggestions anyone please?

Topic: Not sniping

I had problem also with JBW 2.1.2 after Java update around that time on my 10.5.8

Try using 2.1.3pre1 (it’s posted on the board here somewhere for the link), and you may have better luck. My problem was not (not sniping), but extremely slow in response and real memory use kept going up and up and need to quit and start JBW from time to time, but it did still snipe properly (under 10.5.8 with a different Java to match that).

Right now, 2.1.3pre1-0-g450795e I use, seem to snipe okay, and not sluggish in response ….

Good luck.

Happy Halloween Morgan!

App now fails to prep or launch snipes at agreed times. Auction time just comes and goes…

MacOS 10.6.4, JBidWatcher version 2.1.2-0-g040a613

Possibly relevant; Java update since last successful use (on/about 10/24).

Also notice completed items show (FP) after item, but were normal auctions, not fixed price.

Greetings,
I believe 2.1pre7 fixed this, but this should definitely be resolved in the most recent version (2.1pre8 at this time).

Topic: 2.1pre6 problems: Java loading, changing seller name

Greetings,
I’m just letting folks know, I’ve pushed up a 2.1pre7-28-gcd0e285 version to the same download spot described above and will be releasing it as a 2.1pre7 officially tomorrow evening, unless some showstoppers come up.

So…please try it out and let me know if there are any showstoppers! :)

It fixes…snipes failing, bad seller names, bad bidder names, auctions seen as fixed price, unable to retrieve prices, selection color customization, private listing recognition, some sticky search and update infinite loops, and it reduces the amount of derby.log data dumped out when debugging is set to true. There’s also a bunch of improvements internally, and some work towards a new feature that a bunch of users have been asking about.

Yeah…there’s a lot of code in there.

It’s about as tested as I can manage personally, so I’d love some more eyes on it! Feedback is all I ask…!

Best of luck with your auctions!

I just found this, after I posted in the Beta forum – http://forum.jbidwatcher.com/forums/8/topics/2227

I’m getting the seller name issue in JBidwatcher (2.1pre7-8-g61363f2) on MacOS 10.6.3. Also getting auctions showing in JB as Buy it Now, so can’t set a snipe. Details, with pointers to specific auctions, in the post I link to above.
