I started the move to a 1Password account today and after successfully migrating my macbook and iPhone, which I have to say went very smoothly, I tried to move my windows 7 laptop over with much less success. After removing 1Password4 and installing 1Password6 the browser plugin kept coming up with a message saying that the 1Password helper was not running. I clicked a button to launch the app but it launched the desktop app. This is very different from version 4 where I could usually relaunch the background apps not the desktop app. Then I got an empty search box - no list of logins, search did nothing. After a lot of un/reinstalling stuff I came across the Ctrl+Alt+\ trick which made the browser extension suddenly populate with everything I need to make 1Password useful. Although the focus wasn't in the search window at that point like I would expect, I did have to manually click in the search box to type a search.
I have to say that I am very disappointed and if I'd known how unfinished the windows version was I never would of started the migration. I find that 1Password is usually better quality than this and while I managed to get it working it is far from usable. It feels like you haven't been very thorough in your testing for the windows version before dumping it on poor unsuspecting souls like myself. Either that or you don't care so much for the windows users of the world, the mac/iphone versions seem rock solid.
Can you tell me when the windows version will be proper fit and polish for normal usage. I've seen many other posts complaining about the same issue with 1Password6 and the answer you are telling people about firewalls/anti-virus is mis-leading and unhelpful. It's obviously an issue with your software so please take responsibility and fix it.
1Password Version: 6.0.186d
