Liberty Crashes If Liberty Mobile Server Isn’t Licensed

Liberty Crash

In order to run the Liberty Mobile Server app (for-use with iPads), a new serial # from Resaleworld is required.  If this serial # hasn’t been entered and you attempt to run Liberty, it crashes:

This effectively locks you out of your Liberty4 Consignment software until you A) enter a serial # for Liberty Mobile Server or B) uninstall Liberty Mobile Server.  Adding a Try/Catch (Exception Handling) to this, would prevent the software from crashing when it encounters something it isn’t expecting.

This issue is reproducible in the latest version of Liberty4 Consignment (4.6b) and this issue has been reported directly to the vendor.

Update 9/23/2016 — Issue acknowledged by Resaleworld.

I am a Software Developer, System Administrator, and consignment software specialist. I currently manage hundreds of consignment workstations, point of sale systems, and database servers all across North America and I am the developer of Peeps' Software, Peeps2Go, and Peeps' Consignor Login for iOS and Android. I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. Peeps' Software launched in 2016 and is now on hundreds of systems all across North America. I have successfully converted dozens of stores from all of the major consignment software systems. After 20 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old buildings or strip malls, to advocating for them when their old consignment software keeps crashing.
