  1. Hi Roberto, Try to post again and see if they show up within a 30 minute window. If nothing shows up, please email our support team at support@comicbase.com with details such as your User ID and when the last time you tried to post.
  2. Try these steps: -quit out of ComicBase if it's currently open -head to your online account here and download/install the revised CB2020 program installer (v20.0.3): https://www.comicbase.com/mycb/Registrations.aspx * if you have any kind of software security program running like McAfee or Norton, you may need to turn it off temporarily before you install the program installer so it can be fully installed. *additional help for installing can be found here if needed: If you still have trouble, please e-mail our support team directly at support@comicbase.com
  3. Hi Scott, We will be discontinuing content update support some time this year for CB2017. Any renewal you purchase now will be applied to the new CB2020 version. CB2020 will do a format conversion since it uses a new db format but its a 1-time conversion for a database.
  4. Every now and then we get folks who aren't very tech savvy who need help downloading & installing the latest ComicBase program installer. Here's a easy walk-through. 1) first, head to your ComicBase Registrations page here: https://www.comicbase.com/mycb/Registrations.aspx 2) On the Registrations page, click on the green download button for the ComicBase version you're trying to update which will take you to Download links page (for Express Edition users, the installer will simply start downloading to your computer): 3) On the Download Links webpage, look for the ComicBase Program Installer (usually listed at the very top of the page) and click on the blue link. Some browsers will auto-download the installer file when the link is clicked on; if you're browser gives you either the 'Run' or 'Save' options, click on the 'Save' option to download the installer. 4) When the installer completely downloads, your browser may give you the option to 'Run' or 'Open' the installer; go ahead and click on it to start the installer process. *If you don't get either of those options from your browser, manually browse to your Windows 'Downloads' folder and see if the file is there (its usually the newest thing added to the folder if you sort the files in the Downloads folder by date). Once you located the installer just double-click on it to start it up. 5) As you start up the installer, this window will present itself. Don't worry about the setup path highlighted in blue. Just apply the Check-mark for the "I agree to the License and Terms" option then press the Install button 6) Windows will usually bring up this window next, simply click on the Yes button 7) The installation process will continue you on. If this window pops-up, simply click on the first option pictured below and click the OK button to continue installation. Finally, when installation is complete, you see this window. At this point hit the Finish button and you can startup ComicBase again and program will be fully updated.
  5. I can't seem to replicate the problem. I'm getting a cover every time i want to download if i don't have it already. Give Pete a call at 408-266-6883 ext 403; i mentioned this to him and he's willing to work with you over the phone to get the trouble addressed.
  6. Hey Michael, is the problem 100% reproducible? Can you describe the precise steps we can preform to replicate the trouble?
  7. File Menu>Install Pictures and Movies on the next window that pops up, click on the folder icon next the folder path to set a new path to your Pictures folder
  8. if you do a Notes search for Free Comic Book Day 2020 you should get a list off all the releases we're aware of.
  9. are the issues under Cavalcade of Boys need to converted to books rather than regular issues?
  10. Click the Find drop-down and re-select "Title Name of Barcode" - that can re-establish the search parameters you wish to use.
  11. You'll have to tinker with your Windows display settings (resolution); most likely bump up the display percentage
  12. we can't change the name at this point; it would screw up users inventory.
  13. If you can email us at support@comicbase.com & describe (or screenshot) the Print options you selected and also include a pic of how the labels look when they print out that would be helpful for us to see what you're running into.
  14. if you haven't already, you'll want to hit 'Yes' to fix the problem the software has found. If you need further tech support, please email us at support@comicbase.com
  15. make sure you're using our revised CB2020 program installer (v20.0.2.3663) that you can download/install from your online account here: https://www.comicbase.com/mycb/Registrations.aspx *be sure to turn off any software protection programs like Norton or MacAfee before you run the installer as they can sometimes block a full installation. If you still have trouble, please email us at support@comicbase.com for more immediate response from our tech support team.
  16. hard to say... if you notice this again, email us at support@comicbase.com for a more immediate response by our team.
  17. that é character is definitely the problem. I'll notify our programming team to look further into it. Feel free to email us covers to support@comicbase.com
  18. Thanks Steve for letting Pete (our lead programmer) know via Slack what's going on with this one. He mentioned this one a bit more complex... we hope to figure things out in the coming days.
  19. Maybe a good time to optimize your computer (empty recycle bin, defrag your drive(s), etc.) - you may gain some speed/performance afterwards.
  20. Thanks for point out Phantom (1st series), looks like that we'll need to be modified.
  21. typically, whoever starts the title will be the set publisher. If a publisher changes at some point, we use the notes field to indicate the new publisher is takes over.
  22. Installing on 2 different computers is okay. If you plan to use 1 database file to inventory your collection on more than 1 computer, you wanna be sure to load that db on the computer your working on. Storing the db on a flash drive and plugging it into the computer you wish to work on would be a way to do this.
  23. If your db is on a non-SSD (solid state drive) i could imagine some slow performance as the db writes to it when you exit out of CB. If you got other processes/programs running too as you exit out that could also you slow down
