    I've also got the same problem. It just freezes on the sign in screen. I'm running XP Pro with SP2.

    The status bar displays the following: :--*-*_

    The program then starts eating 50+ mg of memory and using 100% processor. The only way to close the program is to ctl+alt+del and end the process.

    This looks like a fantastic program and I hope to be able to get it working.

     i found out that you use the email and password of your xbox passport or whatever. so the email you used to get the xbox live account is the email address and the password is the one you used to make it to.

    Yes, in order for XBF to retrieve your friends list information from Xbox.com (and continue to do so), you need to provide the application with the same sign in credentials as the Xbox.com website.

    For the paranoid, this information is not transmitted to any external website and is stored in an encrypted format on your personal hard-drive for future use with XBF Desktop.

    Re: Start Up

    At this point, if you don't type in the correct username / password for the Xbox.com website, XBF should be showing you a message similar to the following:

    "The e-mail address or password is incorrect.  Please retype the e-mail address and password, or sign up if you haven't already done so.  Need help signing in?"

    This message is not coming from XBF, but rather the Xbox.com/Passport/Window Live site.

    I'm not sure what could be different, are you by chance using a non-english OS?  Whther or not, something is different and the key is to find what that is.  You aren't the only one reporting such wierdness, so I don't want you to think that we think your crazy. ;-)

    Any further information would be great.

    Re: Start Up

    Also, (as posted in another thread)...

    I do everything I can test it on different machines in vastly different configurations; Windows Home, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista Beta 2.

    Two of these machines has Windows OneCare installed (enhanced firewall, anti-spyware, virus protection).

    All of these machines use IE 6.x (except for Windows Vista, which is IE 7.x beta) as their browsers.

    If you have a different configuration than these, please let me know.

    So if you have something different than what I've described, whether it be browser(s), personal firewall software, proxies, net-nanny, etc. please let me know so I can try to reproduce and correct (or at least handle accordingly) such issues.

    Re: Start Up

    You are using the same email address and password that you are using on Xbox.com inside the XBF application, right?

    Re: Start Up

    Please try it with 0.0.0.37... I've made some improvements in the sign in process; mainly in regards to visual cues (progress bar, text).
