Greetings!

I know this is a bit off topic, but as I get EXCELLENT tips and hints in here, and also as I look at the advanced MessageBoard features offered by this site, I wonder:

Can www.appdeploy.com support chat? It would be AWESOME to be able to log in and ask questions or give answers in real-time...

It would have to be a port-80 chat, though, because most of us are probably behind draconian firewalls.

Respectfully,

- Sean

I'm taking a second look at an implementation now. There was a poll up a while back to determine the demand- http://itninja.com/question/silent-uninstall-oracle-8-cilent11

Wow!

Thanks (all) for taking my question seriously! :)

I, for one, vote for chat.

Please remember, though, that it would have to be through port 80 or most corporate firewalls will block it...

Greetings!

I tried to go to the chat ASP page, and all I got was a grey square in what I pressume to be where the chat client would pop up...

Any ideas?

Sean,

It is a Java Applet, check your browser security settings.

- allow javascript
- allow off-site content (the chat server is not in the appdeploy.com domain)

If you use a cookie to logon to this site, you should get logged right on in.

Drats!

Still no-joy on getting the java applet to run... it's probably the local firewall.

I ramped my Java security settings down to the lowest level and still no success.

:(

Thanks for the URL.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting any error messages at all - I'm just getting a grey square in the place where the chat java applet shold be running.

I went to the Sun-Microsystems site and downloaded the lastest JRE...

...and now I can at least see an error in the status bar of the browser saying "Java applet failed to load"

That's why I think it's something in my current client's corporate firewall that is disallowing this applet to run.

Please note: despite my current inability to run the chat applet, I REALLY do appreciate the responsiveness and support of my questions about chat.

I'll try to use the chat applet from home/hotel and see if I have issues there.

Kind regards,

- Sean

Still, that is a bummer. The authors of the chat software I'm using also have a forum that could be of help: http://support.raidersoft.com/forums/

One other possibilty is that you may be able to access the chat room directly (not through AppDeploy.com) here: http://client1.sigmachat.com/sc.pl?id=72394

Good luck!

OK...

After having installed the JRE from Sun, I ran the "console" while trying to launch AppDeploy chat... and I saw the "magic number" error.

The solution to this from the URL you posted was to clear all cached files and close all instances of my browser. Unfortunately, this failed to solve my inability to launch chat.

As bkelly said, "bummer!" :(
