Re: Impossible to add an app to the AppWorld

Hah I found the problem. I had to install the latest JAVA runtime and then it worked. Before that it didn't work for me in IE8 nor IE9.

 

Kind of odd maybe for a site to require the latest JAVA runtime to submit a form? :smileyhappy:

Re: Impossible to add an app to the AppWorld

I'm having this same problem now, completely blocking me from adding an application, with no messaging to give me any idea what's wrong.  Very poor UX design, IMO.

 

Is this seriously a problem with latest-Java-runtime installation?  Has anyone else having this problem found this to fix this problem?  Seems very odd that that would be the problem here...

Re: Impossible to add an app to the AppWorld

Try it.

 

After I was told it only worked on IE I tried it on IE8 on my wife's computer. Didn't work. Then I installed IE9. Didn't work. Then I noticed a pending update for JAVA and installed it. After that I thought "What the heck, let's try it one more time" and... it went through.

No kidding.  I just updated my Java VM installation (from v6 update 23, to v6 update 24), returned to the "add product" screens in BlackBerry App World, and the product-icon-upload form seems to be working just fine now.

 

WTF?  Really?

 

Thanks, TheMarco2, for figuring that out and sharing...
