Marketizer Cloud Release

Marketizer_cloud_logo

Hello Everyone,

I’m happy to announce that I have published the newest version of Marketizer for everyone to use. With this release I am also going to stop working on the installer (setup.exe) version. Any changes I make going forward will be done on this build. A few things I’d like to note. I have designed it in such a way that all supporting files are included. It should not require any resources from other locations, such as the java install, because I isolated any required files and have bundled them with Marketizer. I have also made it compatible with the latest release of App Inventor from MIT, so you should be able to convert your MIT apk’s. I also noticed that using the ClickOnce configuration, it no longer requires elevated privileges to do the conversion. I left the button to allow this option, just in case. Using this deployment, Marketizer now checks for updates every time you launch it. This means that whenever I release a new version, it will automatically update when you launch Marketizer.

To install this version, please follow these steps:

First time install

  1. Using Internet Explorer, go to http://taiic.com/Marketizer/install.htm
  2. Click “Install Marketizer”
  3. When Marketizer opens, click “Create Working Directory” under Setup—>Cert tabs
  4. Once the directory is generated, Marketizer is ready

Marketizer Cloud Beta users

  1. Backup the previous Working Directory by renaming it. i.e. Marketizer_backup
  2. Using Internet Explorer, go to http://taiic.com/Marketizer/install.htm
  3. Click “Install Marketizer”. It should update the beta version to this one
  4. When Marketizer opens, click “Create Working Directory” under Setup—>Cert tabs
    • We need to do this because the supporting files need to be updated
    • The backup in step 1 will contain any important images, files and certs you have stored there
  5. Once the directory is generated, Marketizer is ready

    • Are you using IE? If you are and this is happening, try to toggle compatibility mode a couple times, doing CTRL+F5 after each toggle. I had this happen as well, but after doing that it worked. If it still doesn’t work, try to clear browser cookies, temp files, etc and restart the browser.

        I believe that did the trick.. 🙂
        It’s now downloading and installing… I’ll update if it errors out..
        Thanks for the help….
        For those who may have the same issue my setup is Win 7 64 running IE 9 in 32bit mode.

    Anything for Ubuntu 12.04 users?

  • It’s windows only. But if you install 
    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads and install windows in a VM, you can use it that way.

    Hallo and are nice job you have done but i have are issus on you the vertion 4.1 and on the new on

    if i Click on the singel Click converter after 2 min i resive this no mather what i try and what i set as apk name and as app name

    Meaby you know way i have that error and how i can fixit

    • Hi. That usually happened when either the conversion process had some corruption, which could be fixed by deleting the files MTZ creates during conversion and trying again, or some syntax error in the manifest. Unfortunately since I have not supported this in about 2 years chances are very good that changes made by MIT has introduced some configuration that MTZ doesn’t know what to do with. I would suggest reviewing the manifest (the one created in the conversion process) and make sure there are no issues, such as double entries. If there are, click the checkbox that will pause the conversion and edit the manifest to remove/change any bad entries. If that is the problem here, it should work.
