Post by thefrenchjester » Thu Oct 18, 2012 4:25 pm

Hi,

I have bought the PC version of FOG2 and the companion;
loading is stopping around 20% and does the same for the companion

my PC is a pentium with windows 7 (with 6go ram)
uninstalled it , re installed it and nothing .....

I hope it will be solved;

Hi Shadowdragon,
yes a PC version, same problem on mine as yours, staying at 20% loading, I have AVG as internet security and it seems not coming from there;
same cost for nothing for the moment
I hope the support will solve the problem before the release of the POD version
too bad .....

My problem was slightly different...

Registration didn't work...or so it says ("Serial Number doesn't exist"), but I was still able to open (launch) the reader and download both the Rule and Rise of Rome issues.

When I click on Rise of Rome, the reading window opens up and the messages cycle through "loading issue", "loading cover flow" and then the title page appears, but when I try to read the Rules, it stops at "loading issue". I've deleted and re-downloaded the Rules book and still have that problem I've uninstalled and reinstalled the reader and still the same problem (disabled the firewall to do so just in case).

I solved the registration problem:

When you click on the "register button" the registration web page has the wrong game. The game that shows up is "Field of Glory - Digital version". The correct version should be "Field of Glory Ancients and Medieval 2.0 Reader".

I did manage to register by loading the registration page without the game identifier in the internet address and I was able to register with "Field of Glory Ancients and Medieval 2.0 Reader".

However, the v2.0 rules issue still won't load.

How did you get the registration page to load without the digital version name - it seems 'hard coded' on my MAC registration page.

Try this....and it will take up some of your time!

1) Uninstall the ereader (and delete downloaded books)
2) Uninstall your internet security / antivirus software - even if it doesn't appear to be the problem
3) Reboot
4)Install the ereader (and download books)
5) Install your security software (followed by another reboot)

Hopefully it should work.

Apparently we must trust them even if they don't....oh, well.... :wink:

But I certainly won't be happy if I have to do that every time there's an upgrade. I'm using a blog-standard security program. One shouldn't have to do that to install a program.

Perhaps it was a FoG2 Botnet that did the denial of service attack on HSBC yesterday?

I run a version of Norton provided by Comcast, my ISP. I was able to download and run the V2 e-reader and the rules without any issues. Norton did warn me that the file was new and unknown when I downloaded but gave me the option to accept the file or to delete it. After accepting it I didn't encounter any further issues with the installation and running the reader for the V2 rules. (Given how unimpressive the e-reader is and that there aren't any major changes to RoR, I haven't decided whether I'll but that yet.)

At worst, I would think you would only need to temporarily disable your security software to download the e-reader and content. I cannot see any good reason why you should need to actually uninstall and re-install your security package. If that is necessary, it definitely strikes me that Abannan has done something significantly wrong in their implementation.

It is very encouraging to see that Abannan support does appear to be actively monitoring this forum.

Unfortunately, uninstalling was indeed necessary (and it was the initial advice provided by tech support). Before doing that I had tried disabling the security software but had no luck with it. Tried a couple of other things but finally did what tech support suggested uninstall the security software.

Agree that it's a problem that needs fixing since you don't want to be recommending that to customers - with differing degrees of IT awareness.

We are looking into the issues with anti-virus software and hopefully will have a solution early next week.

Thanks

This is really quite unacceptable. I mean surely someone tested this to make this wouldn't be an issue? It's not as though running anti-virus software is uncommon. I'm running Norton and I've had the same problems as others here - I've uninstalled, deleted everything, downloaded and re-installed twice and it still won't work.

I can tell you now I am NOT temporarily disabling my anti-virus software and definitely NOT uninstalling it.

I quietly have defended this choice of delivery (including using a proprietary e-reader) to some very skeptical friends – who now think it is hilarious that it doesn't work properly - I guess humble pie will be being served at my place for some time!

I'm very disappointed by this - I trust the solution will be quick in arriving.

Sorry you are having problems. Yes this was all tested extensively and worked in all of the tests. We're not sure why users are having lots of issues we didn't see but are looking in to it.

The more info you can give us about your PC the better. Hardware, OS, Anti virus software, firewalls etc. Thanks for your patience and we'll get this resolved ASAP.
