    I've been thinking about doing this for a while now. Many times I get questions in PM or email from users with questions about how to work my AC Mass Submitter software.

    If you have questions about installation, trouble-shooting, future updates, suggestions, etc...please post here and I'll do my best to answer your questions.

    Hopefully by keeping all the information in one spot, it will help everyone out if they run into a problem.

    For those of you who know the ins and outs my software already, feel free to also help out! (Thanks will be given, of course. :) )

    Hi Danny, how are you?

    I'll post the exact replica of my problem which was mentioned on another thread. Here it is:
    "I wonder if ACMS can use my FF + HideMyIP2009 combination like you said. Until now I was using this combo while submitting to AC. If this is is successful, then all your customers will have one of the best solutions at very affordable rate. As ACMS will still not make me feel better by not telling what IP it is using (as of now), I have a suggestion that can help all others... Can you automatically display what 'current' proxy-name (with the port address) is being used somewhere on ACMS? This will help me sleep lot better! :)"
    Reference:
    To your advice on the following link:
    "
    The ACMS internet protocol (how it connects to AC, the license verification, etc) is the same as the one used for Internet Explorer, the web browser. If you go into your Internet Options menu on IE and set it to connect via a proxy, you will also be changing anything else that uses IE's protocol. This means, you'll change how ACMS connects to the internet.

    So, put a proxy/port into IE, then leave the proxy/port fields blank in the ACMS. It should then connect via a proxy."

    Of course, now there is another problem about the new AC regulation, the link is here:
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/associated-content-writing-articles/142004-ftc-dec-1-ac-writers.html
    
    Redtide, Millygirl, and Shawndellah have some real concerns about it, and ACMS will need some overhauling to enable posting especially the review postings.

    Please do the needful ASAP.

    Thanks! :)

    I was going to mention you, srb888, in the original post.

    As far as your proxy recommendation goes, it's highly doable, and I'll try to send out an update in the near future with this feature. I also would love to team up with someone who has private proxies (user/pass) to try and figure out a way to use them inside the ACMS.

    The updates to the AC submission process seem intriguing and a little scary, but we'll see what happens Dec. 1st. I can't program the ACMS ahead of time, because I don't know how they plan on sending their POST data for submission. If you are posting reviews, and they put you through this little diversion, I may need to make a change to the Formatter as well. All the article information is stored in the files that the Formatter creates, so cross your fingers that that is all that is required.

    Excellent idea to start up a support thread Danny. If you get a chance to update the ACMS for the new FTC guidelines it would be huge for all of us. I'm sure many buyers are submitting 25-50% review pieces to AC. I know they make up the largest percentage if what I'm submitting.

    I will put out a major update with the new December software, srb888. Thought you'd like a heads up on when that feature you asked for will be in.

    Also, I just spent some time troubleshooting with a new user on installation.

    If you are using Windows Vista, and you get an error when trying to register the MSINET.OCX file that looks like this:

    The module MSINET.OCX may not compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. Check if the module is compatible with an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of regsvr32.exe.

    The reason is because MSINET.OCX is a 32bit file trying to register on a 64bit system.

    Here's how to get it to work.

    1. Copy and paste the MSINET.OCX file into your C:/Windows/SysWOW64 directory.
    2. Open up a command prompt as an administrator.
    3. Type "cd .." This will get you out of the System32 folder and into the Windows folder.
    4. Type "cd SysWOW64" This will get you into the SysWOW64 folder.
    5. Type "regsvr32 MSINET.OCX" This will register the component.

    Special thanks to Brocation for his patience on this.

    hi,
    i think i am going to buy your article submitter. i have one question though. if i give the author the article formatter will the author see that it is for AC, and then stop working for me and work for themselves. i appologize if this answer is somewhere else. i looked for answer but couldn't find it. i also apologize if i put this post in the wrong thread.

    Here's a screenshot of the Article Formatter tool. There is no word of "AssociatedContent" in it:

    Hope that answers your question.

    You're very welcome.

    I'm going to try and finish up my 3rd and final college programming project tonight. That way I can get started on the new December update as soon as AC changes.

    The new update is only going to pertain to "review" articles Brocation, and like Danny said, is supposed to happen on Dec. 1st.

    Here's more info about the changes..

    So that means it we wont get paid to do review articles unless the companies pay us? or AC will pay regardless?

    No, you'll want to read it a little closer. It means that if you're being paid by a product manufacturer to write a review you'll have to indicate that fact. For the purpose of submitting to AC, we'll just be choosing option #1 which in a nutshell means we aren't being paid by the company whos product we're reviewing.

    What Danny's working on is an update to the ACMS that will allow us to select that option when the new submission template takes effect on Dec. 1st.

    Danny, I don't know if this has already been mentioned but I think a awesome feature you could add to your software would be a picture field. I don't know if it's helped anyone else but pictures have been really helping my upfronts. :)

    Hi Danny,

    Thanks for starting this thread. I just bought your software yesterday and I've been having some trouble getting it to install properly. Right now I can open the program but when I click start after loading my articles nothing seems to happen.

    My guess is because I was never able to use Installation file that something got screwed up. When I try to open the installation file I get this error message "LoadLibrary("MSINET.OCX") failed - The specified module could not be found. Not sure what I'm doing wrong? The MSINET.OCX file is in the main folder along with the rest of the files. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I'm using Windows XP Professional SP3 through Parallels Desktop on a Mac.

    @verve22:

    I've responded to your email, since BHW wasn't loading for me for some reason.

    As a hint to everyone else, it will help speed up the support I can offer you if you download a small tool called TeamViewer. (teamviewer.com)

    This is a share your desktop type program that allows us to both access your desktop. I can fix the problems and explain them to you right there on your desktop, and you will retain all overriding power over my actions (it's a safety precaution, of course).

    When you have an issue, simply send me a session ID and password that you get from within TeamViewer. Most people's issues take less than 5 minutes to solve. I've helped many, many people already via TeamViewer, and I'm sure they will vouch for it's ease of use and safety.

    Thanks,
    Danny
