With TurboLister 1 support finally ending this spring many users have already upgraded to TurboLister 2. Many users who have purchased a new PC with Windows Vista (or upgraded), have discovered that TurboLister 2 is not compatible with their new operating system.
In the eBay Townhall last night we were told with early releases of Windows Vista TurboLister 2 was fully tested and working. Unfortunately in the final release Microsoft changed the code and TurboLister 2 failed to operate. This is being worked on and by early March a new release will be ready which is fully Vista compliant. Good news for all those sellers unable to list in the meantime, but we’d always recommend keeping your old PC running and testing, on a separate machine, all the applications you need for work prior to any major upgrade like Vista or IE7.
Also in the Townhall users have reported issues running parts of the site such as the new Sell Your Item (SYI) form. The advice as ever is that you do need to keep your software updated with the latest browsers and versions of Java. eBay have taken the difficult decision not to support older versions in order to take advantage of new technologies.
For anyone still running TurboLister 1 you need to upgrade as soon as possible.
Hurrah, I can now buy my new PC then 😀
