Did the leaves fall off? Something not working right? Let us know how we can improve the Photosynth experience.
When i try to sign in to photosynth there is some problem.
For few days now. :(
Our authentication servers don't seem to be working.
We're working hard to get them back online.
Please try again later. (80048265)
Did you write this message in Safari on your phone, Tomislav?
Basically, I'mjust wondering if you have any problem logging into the website in Safari.
It now seems probable to me that you meant the Windows app.
Please see this discussion:
Contrary to what the error message says, this is most likely because a firewall on your network is blocking Photosynth from contacting the authentication servers. If you are on a corporate or other Local Area Network, plese have your IT people allow outbound connections to *.live.com and *.photosynth.net
i am using firefox.
and yes. i am on local area network in my dorm
i disabled firewall and reinstall program. but i still can get i to work. :(
and yes. i meant the Windows app
Me too, I can sign in to Windows Live, but not via Photosynth
Yep, me also too! I sign into Windows Live, I can even see my uploaded Synths, but as far as running the app, alone or from ICE, nothing doing. It says my password and email do not match up (But they do, I reset it several times, and log into Live with no problem).
I disabled the VPN, uninstalled and re-installed Phootosynthy, and still no soap.
Help a fella out, can you?
Skyshots Tucson, by any chance have you set up 2 factor authentication on your Microsoft Account/Windows Live ID?
If so, you may need to create an app-specific password to use with Photosynth's desktop application.
Here are two reports by different people who had set up 2 factor authentication and were able to log into Photosynth's desktop application afterward. The first created an app specific password for Photosynth's application and the second person simply turned off 2 factor authentication.
Example 1: http://twitter.com/photosynth/status/428219167443927040
Example 2: http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=a6bad539-de7d-4a16-8c4d-b143f7d5f984&dis=d34c0214-aa8d-4ef2-9120-364bd0c7235e
Microsoft Account passwords have a 16 character limit.
Some password forms will stop accepting input after you type 16 characters, but others will accept more input if you keep typing, so be sure that if you have a longer password that you're only typing the first 16 keys.
I keep going in circles. Every time i get tjhe message, that my email-address and password dont match. It´s very frustrating indeed.
Harlekin96, if you are trying to sign into Photosynth's desktop application and you have 2-factor authentication activated on your Microsoft Account, then you need to go to https://account.live.com/proofs/Manage
You have two options:
1) Turn off 2-factor authentication (not very secure in this day and age, but your one password will work on all Microsoft Account logins everywhere again).
2) Create an App Password to use with Photosynth here: https://account.live.com/proofs/AppPassword?mkt=en-us
(Not very user friendly, but it will work.)
You can learn more here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/app-passwords-two-step-verification
You would follow steps similar to those listed for signing into Zune desktop application or Windows Live Essentials.
