Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Potential problem

I just read ebay is changing to ssl on there login. I am not sure if this will break bidwatcher or not. Maybe this will keep you from getting blind sided again. Thanks for a great program.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Dual boot bidwatcher?

Hi I have a machine that dual boots to Fedora core2 and windows 98. 9.3.1 seems to work great on both. I would like to use the same files in both oses. I can see the windows in linux. Do you think this will cause any problems?
I see some details in the advanced config section. Will that be enough to do this?

Thanks for this great program! Don

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Minor issues

Thanks for a great program. These are not critical bugs but just a few observations.

I some times click on my icon and start a second version. Would it be easy to check to see if it is already running and switch to that window? I know it is an operator head space issue. I have not seen any problems from this but it may cause some problems if settings were changed in this state.

Love the tabs. Would be possible to leave items in the tabs after the end of an action?

If you do a buy it now that has multiple items, your item does not show up in the compleated colum until the action ends. Not a big deal but it took a few minites to figure out what was going on.

Glad to see you working on this again and hope you are feeling better.

Don

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Can't open Mozilla

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.

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

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

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Can't open Mozilla

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
