I have installed desktop media uploader on umbraco 4.5 (umbraco v
4.5.1 (Assembly version: 1.0.3858.40498))
As well as installing the desktop air app. The media uploader works fine on a colleagues machine which is running windows 7, however on several windows Vista machine I get an "invalid login" message instantly (i.e. it doesnt even seem to be connecting)
I am pretty confident that the login details I am entering are correct, has any one else run into this issue?
I'd recommend you install something like Fiddler (http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/) to check whether the call from the air app is actually occuring, and if it is, if any errors are being returned.
Hey Matt thanks for the reply,
I installed fiddler and started it and logged into desktop media uploader and it worked, I literally didnt do anything else. If I stop fiddler then the media uploader goes back to saying that my login is invalid.
I have replicated this on two machines running vista.
Bit of a weird one!
Hmmm, interesting. You don't happen to have a proxy setup by any chance on your Vista machines do you? I wonder if something is interfearing with the request.
Nothing that I can think of, we have a firewall setup on our router but that shouldnt be affected by fiddler should it?
It Shouldn't do.
My only reasoning being that Fiddler acts as a proxy, so for it to work when Fiddler is enabled, and not when Fiddler is disabled would suggest it's something to do with your connection.
Without knowing what is happening to the web requests coming from the air app, it's very dificuilt to pin point the exact issue, best I could suggest is to do some more diagnostics around your internet connection.
Will do thanks matt
Hi, I'm getting the same issue. I can used Desktop Media Uploader to connect to other sites which are live at a www address. However, I cannot connect to two sites we're currently building. While we're building the site, one of the sites is available at the following address - http://oblates.beta.habanero.com/umbraco/
I'm using the right login and password but it keeps saying Invalid Login. does it expect a www address? I installed and ran Viddler and then tried to connect and no-go. I turned off Windows Firewall as well and still no-go.
In case it helps anyone, I was having issues as well. Turns out it only works if the web site is running in Full Trust. I haven't looked at the details of how this control is implemented. Is there any way to make it work in medium trust?
In case this helps anyone, I had same issue. I had used desktop media uploader fine for over a year, and then when i upgraded to Adobe Air 3.4.XX i got the instant login failures as described above. I uninstalled Adobe Air 3.4 and downloaded an older version from oldapps.com (http://www.oldapps.com/adobe_air.php). I chose 3.2 and now everything works as normal.
I'm getting this in Fiddler........

......other web services are working OK. Full Trust and Air 3.2 so baffled.
