Well, they have the beta on the website. I am sure they will release an update when the Windows team starts making more too. That is, after DeadAIM's features are integrated into AIM.
Hmm…..if that is the control you are missing, the forum said that it was a bad control and that it was made by this guy's friend and can't possibly work. Are there any other controls that are missing?
These programs worked before?
I already found the whole issue on google. 🙂
Well, whoever made the program used an outdated version of Visual Basic or C++, they would want to upgrade with a service pack from Microsoft. If you have the file, it should work. Incase your files are out of date, just run a search on google, most are available for download. Hope that helps…
EDIT: What program is it anyway?
EDIT #2: This is what I found in the big-o-software forum. Take a look.
That program is a joke.
It's using tocSock.ocx which was written by friend of mine Robbie. I haven't used the program but Im thinking what he was trying to do is connect to AIM Server using tocSock.ocx and add more users to the list since the list is stored on AIM Server. Well this will never work !
Server will accept the user and add him to the list. But the Aim Client will block any user over 200. The only thing that will actually work is you patch your AIM client…
Oh yeah….everyone else on there said that they couldn't get it to work either. 😮
Or, you can be cheap, like me, and use the old version because: A) It is free. B) There are few features I would use in the new one. C) It just isn't worth it. I've lived up until now without it haven't I?
I wouldn't back them up, you cannot be sure you absolutely get everyfile, as they replace system files. You would need the install file. You will have to download SP4 (which includes 1,2, & 3) and install that once you format then reinstall. You can also order a CD.
The bug still exists when you lock the computer. AOL hasn't cleared everything up yet.
I think it is all a plot to bring J.Dennis down. Why would AOL, the company that took away smiler, suddenly be open to an IM addon? It is putting J.Dennis into a corner that he can't escape. Infact, he is already there. He really had no choice but to agree to AOL's proposal. This shows that AOL has already begun forcing their ideas upon J.Dennis. J.Dennis had two choices, join the enemy, or get sued into oblivion. AOL is not stupid, they were either going to control a part of it, or make it go away. The smiler was technology they had that we didn't (that the smiler enabled us to take hold of), AOL shut that down. Now, it is reverse, who knows what AOL could do when it wants a piece of technology. Plus, they couldn't just add all of those features to AIM 6, they have to eliminate the competition. By coming to an agreement, this puts AOL in position to step foward with its plans. Oh, and BTW, I read in the J.Dennis forums that some nut went to AOL about how J.Dennis was selling software to enhance AOL's product. AOL's response was that they would handle it. I see the end of DeadAIM is upon us.
Well, we all know that this means that Dead AIM will soon be the intellectual property of AOL. Maybe J.Dennis will get his own cubical.
Actually, since the problem seems to lie with Dead AIM contacting the J. Dennis servers and messing up somewhere along the way which would make Dead AIM to ask again, you could probably use a firewall and block all contact with the J. Dennis IP range. Not sure if this would work, it might only just make it ask more. It is worth a try though. You would need to have an advanced firewall such as Zone Alarm Pro, and you would need to set it to block the ip range 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 I did this with Microsoft as well so they do not track my activity. If it works, it will never ask for it again and be happy with what it has.
Edit: But wait…..couldn't that be considered spyware? I wonder what J.Dennis is really up to.
I believe you can share multiple directories by right-clicking on each directory and going to send to and then to AIM Share. I am not sure if that works for multiple directories, but if you have your security settings correctly configured, anyone can connect with your permission and download a selected file.
My previous setup was fine, I had to format to go down. All of the drivers were lost and HP only had Windows XP drivers that were incompatible, it was the first place I looked. I figured it was not worth it and upgraded to XP Pro. Oh well.
I never really saw much of a difference that was worth the five dollars. You get to talk while away, and get a new set of options. Well hooray…to me, that isn't worth five dollars, especially when you can get the rest of the features for free. I would say on estimate I IM people while im away about…hmm…once or twice a year. It just isn't worth it. I don't need aliases either, I have lasted this long. I wouldn't want my chats logged, and I save images that I want to save. Again, it is hardly worth it.
It would help if you told us your OS and how much RAM you have. Be more specific, is there an error number? Have you tried the AIM website? Have you uninstalled then reinstalled AIM? Are your buttons turning black, if so you are out of RAM and need to close programs and buy more. Report a bug to AOL. What type of computer do you have? I cannot help until you answer these.
