Version 1.1.6

Be sure to check out current program status before you sign off!

Updated 08/12/02 version 1.1.6 (Major Update to the Re-Release)

There is NO patch for this update. A full program uninstall and download reinstall is required to make this update.

1. Ebay has made a couple of format changes. Most noticeable is a Feedback View limit of 200 compared to 500 and ALL. S2B will auto change your setting for you with this release for any setting over 200.

2. A third party control bug fix hopefully has been made. Issue revolves around running both the feedback manager and the Quick Stats at the same time. Start FB or Shill check then open Feedback Manager and retrieve data. Bug if not resolved will appear momentarily. 

3. Feedback Manager: A few small inconsistencies on Ebay's site caused some sporadic problems when retrieving and/or sending feedback. More robust algorithms were created to minimize this kind of problem.

4. The new S2B program updater is not working correctly. You can check for messages from me about updates but until further notice, no updates are possible with the updater.

5. Binary compatibility mode has been set for all associated dll files created for and used by the program. Major features with the eSafe2Bid release as Safe2Bid have been cast in stone. New major features will be released in later major version releases.

There is not an Update Patch for this update. You will need to uninstall your existing Safe2Bid program from Control Panel Add/Remove Programs. If prompted to remove shared files not in use, say YES to all.


Updated 03/14/02 version 1.1.2 (2nd Update to the Re-Release)

New to the Safe2Bid:

1. An Updater. I hurried up and got it done )

2. Removed the 4 keyword search limitation and implemented an unlimited keyword search feature. By doing this you can search for 'like" words for example, poor, poorest. In addition you can use a multiple word search like Never Received.

3. When submitting feedback a window pops up showing who will and will not be given feedback. Now only those that will be getting feedback will be displayed.

Bugs Fixed:

  1. Found a bug in the proxy feature I thought was fixed. I also enhanced the Help file to assist further with setting proxy settings. 

  2. A second registration bug.

  3. A bug reported that involved a fatal error when submitting feedback could not be replicated.

  4. A bug reported that involved the About Safe2Bid window could not be replicated but should the problem occur again, a Runtime error 13 will not occur.

  5. A bug reported that involved shrinking the main window was fixed.

  6. A bug reported that involved clicking report to SafeHarbor button showing an email address used to test was fixed.

  7. A bug reported that involved mousing over some User ID's in Negative feedback that should have been a link, looked like a link but didn't do anything was fixed.

  8. A bug reported that involved the program stopping midway through getting somebody's feedback history with an unexpected error could not be replicated.

  9. A bug reported that involved canceling a feedback submission gave the impression the program was still processing feedback. It wasn't but now "false start" will be displayed to indicate submission was cancelled before it began.

  10. A bug reported that involved tabbing not behaving as expected was fixed (skipping fields)

  11. A bug reported yesterday as a matter of fact that reported InetViewFBOwed failed... Error (If Applicable) 0 Job 1 turned out to be an Ebay change with signing in.

  12. A bug reported that involved printing the reports. I was not able to replicate the bug as the reports printed just fine on my printer. This was what was reported and if any others have the problem let me know

    "each paragraph of the descriptive text is displayed on one line and truncated when it reaches the right edge of the paper"
