Changed ebay password a few days ago and updated password in JB.
Still got yellow.
Then yesterday installed 2.5.6 and got green.
Next day (today) opened JB but got yellow.
Reinstalled 2.5.6 and got green.
Closed and reopened JB and got yellow.

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Is it possible you are accidentally running an older version when you close
    and re-open JBidwatcher? I.e. you're installing it, and launching from the
    installer, but when you run it normally you run it some other way that runs
    the older version?

    Where do I find 2.5.6 ???

    It should have installed under your Program Files. Pull up the Start menu,
    go to programs, and...I don't have a Windows box in front of me,

    You should also be able to launch JBidwatcher however you normally do, and
    then go to Help | About and it should give you a version number.

    Just to be clear, you did run the installer, not the standalone executable,

    Your May 28th reply fixed my problem. I was opening the previous version from a quick launch icon. Replaced that and JB has been fine since. Thanks!

    You could close the ticket on my issue, but I see DIDI has a related issue that's on this same ticket.

    thanks again.
