View Full Version : Problems logging in. -- Beta Version Expired

29th December 2009, 01:24 PM
Hi guys.
Having some problems at the moment. Logged in this morning and traded the greyhounds this morning. Closed down the toy and when i try to open it now it says.
* Beta Version Expired*
*Please Download the latest version from our website*
I have downloaded the toy again, reinstalled it but still get the same message.
Anyone else have the same problem or any suggestion?

I think you should uninstall The Toy and then go to


to get the new version.

Thanks for the answer but the problem is that is exactly what i have done. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall it now two times, still get the same message. Very strange this.
I closed the the toy and went for lunch when i got back i got this message. Have been using the toy for one month and this is the first time i have had a problem.

Might seem a daft comment but are you sure that the icon you are clicking on is for the new version - I found that when uninstalling it wasn't removing the desktop shortcut and as such was trying to load up the old version.

Worth a double check.

The earlier Beta's had an expiry circa now, but version 1.0 { On the site} shouldn't have.

1. What Operating system are you using?
2. Where are you checking the version number? Desktop Icon, Start Menu Icon or Program files folder?

Hi Geek

Currently havin the same problem.

I traded the Chicago Bulls - Detroit Pistons, switched off the computer to have dinner, and when I return to prepare the next NBA match (I hate the New Year TV specials) I find that Beta has expired (maybe The Toy has decided to party for 2010 year).

I clearly was on Toy 1.0 since released, and I have reinstalled twice tonight with the two msi files disclosed on the web. I have removed The Toy twice with Windows tool and with Dedicated "uninstaller" software

I will switch to emergency back-up.


I'm on Windows XP SP3 (emulated under VMWARE Fusion 3 on Snow Leopard Mac)
I downladed fresh MSI files tonight from http://www.geekstoy.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1&Itemid=6, the one in the middle of the page, and the one at the end of it.
On Program files/The Geek/A Geekstoy/Ageekstoy says assembly version

Sorry people. This is totally my fault. I left the Beta expiry code in version 1 by mistake.

Will have a download link up for you in a few minutes.
