The Best Spinner version 3.0 beta has arrived! :D
« on: May 26, 2011, 08:41:53 PM »
Okay everybody, I finished up the initial release of The Best Spinner 3.0 beta earlier than I anticipated, so I'm making it available to you tonight instead of tomorrow.

REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A BETA! That means there WILL be issues and bugs that I will need to fix.  There's simply NO way I can use such complex software in every possible way that all of the thousands of users will in order to find and fix every bug in advance.  So expect to bump into issues (though hopefully there aren't any glaring ones).

REPORT ALL BUGS IN *THIS* BOARD.  Please do not post bugs in the primary TBS forum.  Anything posted there will just get moved here anyway.

VIDEO TUTORIALS ARE COMING.  I'm having a series of professional tutorial videos produced for TBS3, but they will take a while to get here.  Most things are pretty self-explanatory, and those that aren't are usually similar enough to the older TBS versions that they will still make sense to you.  But I am having a full-blown set of videos made to help make things easier.  Feel free to ask questions in this forum if you're not sure how something works.

I'm all ears for your feedback in addition to any bug reports.  Additions, improvements, suggestions -- I want to hear them.

Download version 3 here:

http://thebestspinner.com/downloads/SetupTheBestSpinner3.exe

You login using your normal TBS username/password.

Oh, and have fun. :D

Jon

I'm pretty sure I know what that's from, and I'm pretty sure it's fixed for the next update. :)  Thanks.

installed on W7 fine.  Should we uninstall the previous version?

did an auto-rewrite, no problems.

No need to uninstall the old version at this point, no. They will run side by side fine (but you can't be logged into both at the same time).

The hanging on exit issue (if I'm correct about its cause) will only happen periodically depending on what you did while running TBS.  Like I said, though, it should be fixed in the next update.

 ??? I downloaded and installed TBS3 and it went well, however the update 3.001 does not want to install. Error opening file c:\Program Files\TheBestSpinner3\TheBestSpinner.exe  I run Win 7 with plenty of disk space. I have tried several times including rebooting the computer but result is always the same.

Thanks

Clear your browser cache and try downloading the setup file and reinstalling.

I need more details about exactly what error you're getting and when.

 :) Solved the problem or at least I worked around it. I uninstalled TBS3, downloaded it again and reinstalled as an administrator. I noticed that the new download included the 3.001 update. I had a few anxious moments on the way but it now seems ok.  :-\

Hi Jon

I am reposting my earlier request here for TBS 3 as I wasn't sure if you read my earlier thread.

---------------

I brought up a new request about Data Merge a few days ago.

Any chance of implementing it in TBS 3?

Thanks.
