Gixen Desktop Manager 2.0.2 has just been released.

Improvements include:

1) GDM is now 64-bit. which makes it perform better and be more friendly on Windows 7, Windows 10, etc.

2) A third-party openssl library that was previously needed and distributed with GDM is no longer needed.

3) As before, GDM does not install - you unpack the zip archive and run it. It's free from adware and spyware as long as you download it from Gixen.Com (download link is below). Please avoid any other site that offers it, some modify it and add all kind of different garbage that you don't want installed on your computer.

I will see if interest for 32-bit app still exists to release it in parallel, but the default distro will now be 64-bit.

You can download it from https://www.gixen.com/gdm/GixenDesktopManager.zip

Hi Mario,

I have just downloaded GDM and at first execution, Norton (Symantec endpoint protection V12.1.6) said it was not a safe file and has deleted it...

frichmout,

I guarantee you I haven't put any malware into GDM. The only important thing is to download it from Gixen directly, and not some shady third-party site.

As for the Norton, definitely not my favourite anti-virus software.

Just to mention that the links to the Gixen Desktop Manager on the main gixen.com home page are currently giving an error "The topic or post you requested does not exist".

Also, is there any way to know when there is a new version of Gixen Desktop Manager (or indeed of the Firefox extension) without having to visit the Community to check? I'd be happy to be on a (low volume) Gixen mailing list that told me about updates, planned outages, etc.

Hi,
I would like to have the 32-bit version of Gixen Desktop Manager.
I know that the future is at 64 bits, for questions of organization and computer park, I stay at 32 bits (for the moment).
Thanks

Just to mention that the links are still broken - and I'd still like a way to know when a new version is released Smile

Thank you, I updated the link on the home page. For major GDM updates - I disable the old version on the server side, so you know immediately that you must upgrade. I don't do that always - e.g. not for minor updates, as it's a hassle for users who may not need the update.

I will see that I add another flag on the settings page (e.g. email for GDM updates), as I don't want to email all users about something they may not use at all.

Thanks for 32 BIT Desktop Manager ! ! !


Can [32 BIT] Desktop Manager be loaded with Firefox and then have items go to Firefox eBay pages when item clicked on??
To avoid bidding yourself up when forgetting you are using Firefox Autosnipe for your eBay bids instead of Explorer.
Very Happy

I'm not really understanding this 22dollar,

There is only one Gixen snipe amount for any particular auction, whether you add that snipe via the web interface, via Autosnipe or via the Gixen Desktop Manager, they all access the same Gixen database.

Norton always considers anything they don't recognize - or that enough subscribers aren't signed on to - something to quarantine. So do a number of other malware bots.

Although I don't buy as much from eBay as I used to, I have downloaded the Gixen Desktop Manager and Android app and it has made buying from eBay so much easier.
Thank you for this.

I was wondering if you planed to release a mac os and/or ios version of the desktop manager. I know I can run the windows version in one of the many different virtual machine software but it would be much more convenient to have a OSX version if possible.

Thank you.

Nomz,

Do you know how much a development environment for an Apple device costs ?

It might have to be crowd funded, just to make it an economic option.

Just signed up and won bid by $21 less than my top offer. Even though Mirror may not seem like much value added for $6 I purchased to support this excellent program. Thanks.

I just signed up and downloaded the desktop app but when I signed in, I got this notice:

Your ebay authorization has expired or expires in less than 10 days. Please renew it on the Gixen settings page or your snipes may fail. Your eBay authorization to Gixen has been revoked. Please renew it on the Gixen settings page or your snipes may fail.

Where is "the page" in eBay?

Log in to your Gixen account and click the [Settings] button to go to your Settings page.

Follow the Re-authorize Gixen on your eBay account link and carry out the instructions.

I have to input my login name and password into Desktop Manager every time I open it.
I have ticked the "remember" box on every occasion, however, the next time I use it I always have to input my credentials again.

I guess that the account that you are using to run the application doesn't have update access to the working directory that the application is using.

The credentials would normally get stored in an file called gixen.ini in that directory.

1) Log in your account (Log in Now)  at Gixen site.

2) On your home main account,  click the Settings button.

3) scroll down a bit until you see "eBay authorization token status" and click "Re-authorize Gixen on your eBay account" link

4) You will be taken to eBay site automatically  Log in your eBay account that you want it associated with Gixen

5) click agree

6) it will go back to Gixen.com automatically with a message saying  "Thank you. Account re-authorized. The new expiry date is: (date here - good for about 18 months)


Do the same thing every 17-18 months

Is that the only message that you get, and is it in a separate window ?

Can you get to the 'Settings->Username and Password' option ?

If so have you tried changing the credentials via the panel that comes up after selecting that option ?

I have tried the new version for the last 2-3 days and I offer the following comments:

Credentials are not remembered even thought the box is checked.

Print is very small and hard to read. (I use a 23" monitor.)

Individual lines need to be separated somehow. Perhaps using color on every other line instead of each line.

No item thumbnails. This makes it difficult to locate an individual listing without reading each description.

Most of all, it is very slow to load compared to the original Desktop Manager.

The application requires write access to the working directory before that can work as the details are stored (encrypted) in a file on your hard drive.

Does that include access to all the hardware and software required to support Apple devices ?
