Re: TWBlue problem

Also, as a workaround: Until something better by way of oa direct solution comes around, if it ever does; each time you run TWBlue, i.e., from the desktop icon or elsewhere, always use Shift+F10 to get to the Run As Administrator option and press ENTER on that. Then, TWBlue should open for sure. (I am basing this on my current experience with the program, which is as I type receiving tweets for me.)

Then when you've done that, i.e., removed extra characters (including the
trailing space there), open your Windows (or File) Explorer and navigate to
the TWBlue.exe file which is in the list view of the TWBlue folder in the
C:\Programs folder. You'll need to run twblue.exe as Administrator, and
allow it (in the UAC, say yes). There could be a problem with some recent
Windows7 update, or, same in Windows10.

Try going to the TWBlue icon on your desktop and pressing ALT and ENTER to
bring up the icon's properties.

Under the Shortcut tab you'll see the target as:
"C:\Program Files\twblue\TWBlue.exe"

If there is a character after the quotation mark after .exe, delete the
extra character and press OK

Hi guys,

I've been hesitant to answer every since Chrissie presented the issue on
another list.

But, I seem to recall that there is something in properties which needs
to be cleaned out.

Does this jog anyone's memory?

Oh yes indeed I tried that with no result I'm afraid.

On the problem case, did you try Run as Administrator, with
Shift+F10, on
TWBlue? And if you use the User Account Control, you'll need to give
permission every time, unless you lowered the percentage quite a bit.

Last week, when I ran the program for the first time in a good while, in
response to another list member who had a similar problem to what you're
having, for a few times it wouldn't run, but then I noticed, first, a
to Donate Now; and then, a prompt to update to the latest version. (The
program wouldn't run, I guess, until I dealt with those prompts. Having
ddealt with them, all was well with my TWBlue again.) (I run Chicken
and like it.)

Hi Folks

I wonder if someone can help me.

I have two laptops running Windows 7 64 bit both of which have the
twitter client. both have been running it successfully until
yesterday when
one of the machines would not run the program at all, either from the
shortcut on the desktop or from the TWBlue.exe file.

I am running Microsoft Security Essentials so wondered whether this was
causing the problem, so temporarily disengaged it, having done a full
which said the computer was clean, for what that's worth.. I have tried
uninstalling TWBlue completely and re-installing it, which seems to
go fine
until I'm asked to run TWBLUE when, as usual absolutely nothing
happens. If
I click on either the desktop shortcut or the .exe file again absolutely
nothing happensthe

It still works fine on the other machine which is from the same company
running exactly the same system and configuration.

Could it be possibly that MS Security Essentials has thought it
suspect and
quarantined it or something, and if so, in case that is the problem,
how do
I tell MSSE that it's a ligitimate program?

I tried the windows troubleshooting program which informed me that
was incompatible, so I tried running it in compatibility mode, again
nothing. to be fair, I don't find the troubleshooter particular
intuitive so
may well have missed something. yes I know I could run something like
chicken Nuggets but since TWBlue runs perfectly on my other machine
it would
be nice to have it running on both. Btw, the fresh installation was
the TWBlue website so should be okay.

thanks for any help.
