Gen4 Status meter

Code the new status meter to automatically uninstall any status meters from the old applications. I had to manually uninstall and it's just not that hard to code the uninstall into the program.

The status meter install window needs some tweaking. A small window pops up and takes control of the screen. If you're able to get all the way to the install, the message in the top part of the window states "Please wait while application installs" yet at the bottom of that small window is a message to "Try Again". It took several minutes for the install to finish; however, during that time it wasn't clear the install was taking place (hence remove the "try again" message). When we finally figured out the install was done, it was hard to find the "x" in the upper right of the small window to exit the window. Revamping the window would make it more user friendly.

Hi Sandie, I'm glad to hear you were able to figure out how to uninstall the old status meter and replace it with the Gen4 version. Thank you for sharing this information here and thank you for this suggestion. Sara

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: Gen4 Status Meter - where can I find it?

Hi David, you would see it in your programs on your computer. If you are using Windows, go to Start, Programs, and look for Status Meter. You can also see it in the Control Panel - Start, Control Panel, Programs. Suz

"You can also see it in the Control Panel - Start, Control Panel, Programs."
You'd have to access the add & remove programs to view it there

The main page on the new website has a section called "tools quicklauch" (on the right side of the page). The "download status meter" utility is in that section. Be sure and uninstall the old meter if you have one before installing the new one.

My Status Meter always says "100% of your data allowance available"! Woo hoo!! I get 10000MB of download EVERY DAY?! ;o) I think I have an issue. (Actually the Internet Usage "at a glance" says 99-100% available everytime I log in. And the Stystem Control Center page says the same thing. I'm trying to get Tech Support Chat to help me...but there seems to be some sort of communication problem. Oh...she just disconnected me. I guess Claire doesn't know what to do. :(

Nope...tried chatting with tech support on line. She couldn't figure out what I was saying. Gave me a link to check my email on line and then to check my hourly/daily download. But I still have 100%...all of the time! (per the three places I have been checking). :o)

We've been seeing the same thing. We think they're resetting the meter almost every day while they get their land-legs. Have you looked at the tokens yet? It "appears" our old tokens have been ported to the new system. I'm not sure if that's a fluke or for real. It would be nice if they were ported since I had some purchased tokes on the 90000 system.

That's also a "wait and see".
