Hello, my TweetMyPC is not working, it installed fine.
I'm sure I installed the newest Windows updates.
I open both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer (Chrome is standard browser, I also tried Internet Explorer as Standard browser) and sign in with my Twtitter Account.
TweetMyPC opens, then I click "Sign in with Twitter", it opens a window, i click OK.
After a few seconds, it sais Cant verify with Twitter.com.
This is the debug file;

check your standard webbrowser settings. verify that you can go this: pres Windows-Key+R and then type in "http://www.twitter.com" - does it open the twitter website?

It opens Twitter.com fine, in Chrome

Hi, I think I'm having the same problem here.
I'm using Windows 8 Pro. I tried to set up the default brwoser to IE, FF and chrome but still no luck...

I'm having the same problem. When I try to connect TweetmyPC with the button Sign in with Twitter it says: "Can't verify with Twitter.com. Please open your Webrowser and login with your username and Password, then retry."

I'm using Windows 8 Pro 64 bits, tried with Chrome as default, Firefox as default, IE 10 as default and Safari as default....

Another question, when I hit Save and Hide, and I double click the tray icon it doesn't appear again... I see the icon in my taskbar but the window is hidden or something that I can't see it...

I have the same problems:
1) "(401) Unauthorized" Can't verify with Twitter.com
2) when I double click the tray icon it doesn't appear again (works only first time when I launch the program)

Windows-Key+R and then type in "http://www.twitter.com" will open logged in Twitter.com in Chrome.

Hi, Windows+R+http://www.twitter.com fires up the twitter welcome page. But TweetMyPC still doesn't work. Whatever I'm already signed in or not in twitter.

confirmed. seems like Twitter changed their API again. (Twitterizer 2 doesn't work any more)
Is any software developer here who can recommend another easy to use oauth library?


Best regards,

I am currently playing with TweetSharp as library to access twitter. It already supports the new Twitter 1.1 API and seems to work very stable so far.
I hope to be able to release a stable new TweetMyPC version within a few days.
Also, after this is running again, I might add the Facebook C# SDK, which might allow TweetMyPC to use facebook (has some advantages: has far less downtime compared to twitter, doesn't change the API and then disables support for the old one every few weeks like twitter does, seems to have higher api usage limits then twitter)

Good news! I'm looking forward to test your great software.

just to notify you: I got it to work with the new tweetsharp library and already changed the checking rate algorithm. The hidden window problem should be fixed now, too. Currently I am testing the new version. By the way: is there anyone here who still has tweetmypc working?

fixed as of now with version 4.0.4. use the update feature in the help menu of TweetMyPC.

also fixed the screenshot command, the ip command and the hidden window problem.
