Virgin Digital Helper - welcome to the beta test


Forum Editor

Likes # 0

Those of you who are registered for our latest beta testing session should by now have received two emails from Virgin, so you know who the mystery company is! If you haven't yet received emails don't worry, it will happen within 24 hours.

The emails are automatically generated by Virgin's server, and you may ignore the one that mentions a receipt. The other message will contain information that will enable you to download and register yourself on the server (you should enter your email address, plus the registration code that will be in the email).

Once you have downloaded and installed the software please post in this thread to confirm, and let us know if you had any problems with the download and/or installation/registration.

Please do NOT post any other comments, or start any new threads - as soon as we have everyone with a successful download and installation I'll start further threads in which there will be a series of questions for you to respond to.

We're delighted to be able to work with Virgin in this way on what promises to be an interesting test experience. The company will closely monitor your comments, and changes may be made as a direct result of what you have to say.

Please contact me directly via email if you have any specific questions that aren't answered by what I've said here.

Logged on to web site using Firefox 3.5.5

On 'Our Services' page the links under 'Also in this section' do not work.

On the 'Answers' page, the 'Highest Rated Items' links do not work nor do the 'Browse & Filter' links. The 'Featured Articles' links do work.

On the 'My Account' page none of the links work.

On trying to install Desktop Helper I get the error message
'The operating system is not adequate for running Desktop Digital Helper'.
I'm running 64bit Windows 7. No sign of any system requirements on the web site.

and their site will undoubtedly change to reflect changes as they're made. The cancellation email is obviously an automated server response, and is being wrongly triggered for some reason. each of you has a free subscription account, so you have no need to worry.
