  • russel morris

    hi there
    i have been using mixit on my phone and then on my laptop with XP pro.
    i recently upgraded to a new laptop using vista home fresh out the box but now my problerms are as follows:
    1) i tried to download the pc beta version of mixit from the site then enter S.A and western p and the code and hit download. it then starts but just hangs at about 40%.
    2)I then tried loading the same version i had on my old lap which i saved to my ext HD . this worked ok and i logged in and as long as i dont double click on a contact it keeps workingbut when i do try to start chatting it sits and thinks for a few moments then says `AN ERROR HAS OCCURED AND THE APP WILL NOW CLOSE`. I then need to reboot my sys to access it again. I compared most of the` internet options` setting of the two laps and they are similar. i cleared my cache and cookies to no avail
    please help, any advice would be welcome
