Just a thought...
Does my anti-virus software interfere with the reminders plug-in?
Is the behavior of the reminders plugin in any way similar to those being monitored by an antivirus software? I use Antivir free-edition. Do I need some adjustment in settings?
I really doubt it's affected, but if you want you could try disabling your antivirus. Not sure I'd recommend it, though!
I gave up on a windows netbook and installed ubuntu easypeasy on our eeepc 701. After installing java and usbmodemswitch, I installed Frontlinesms and got it started easily. This time around, the reminders plug-in worked without problems! I also tried using the test number in the reminders plugin to trigger a keyword and it also worked well.
So what could be the problem with windows? Anyway I hope I don't encounter any more problems.
