How To Place An Order In ROES


 
 

Troubleshooting (MAC)

Q: I updated my Mac OSX version and did a System Update but now ROES won't open.

A: Over the past few months, Apple has made numerous changes to its OSX platform, which unfortunately inclues the blocking of Java software. Our suggested solutions to this issue are categorized below by version:

If you are running OSX 10.5.8 ROES is only supported if Java 6 is installed, which can only be done on Mac systems with an Intel Core 2 Duo or higher Intel processor.

If you are running OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), following this link will launch a browser with a download to Java 1.6.0_51, and once installed will allow ROES to function as normal.

If you are running OSX 10.7.3 (Lion) we recommend updating to version 10.7.5 using the Apple Software Update tool along with the latest version of Java 7 located here

If you are running OSX Mavericks and receive launch notification regarding an 'Unidentified Developer', this can be resolved by locating the launch.jnlp file in your downloads folder, right-clicking on the application, and selecting the option to 'Open'. At this point, the pop-up window will appear once more, but this time you will be able to select the option to 'Open' the application and begin downloading the ROES software.

Q: When I launch ROES, it displays ALL of my images in ALL of my folders across ALL of my drives. How can I fix this?

A: when the program does launch check to see if the "Search Enclosed Folders" button is checked. If it is, uncheck the button before moving on to ordering. The first time after you've unchecked the box, you may notice that all of your files are loading in again. If that's the case, click the X for the first listed folder while holding down the OPT key to remove them all!

Q: I can't locate my external hard drive when I click the "Add Images" button using ROES on my Mac.

A: To locate your hard drive in the new ROES interface, begin by clicking the "Add Images" button and navigate to your Macintosh HD from the drop down menu. From here, scroll down to the Volumes folder and double click to access any external drives that may be connected.

Q: Can I upload multiple orders in ROES?

A: Once you start uploading an order, you can immediately go back and start a new one! There is no need to wait for the first order to complete processing. However, please note that it is important to stay within the same program. If a second copy of ROES is launched while the first is still running, submitting a second order will corrupt, or in some instances, duplicate the files.

Q: What are the system requirements to run ROES?

A: The minimum system requirements for ROES are as follows:

  • Java 6.0

  • 1.6GHz processor

  • 2GB RAM

  • 500mb free disk space

ROES is supported on Intel based Mac OSX 10.5.8 systems and newer.

Q: ROES won't open on my computer, what's wrong?

A: In some cases, the last launch may have stored a setting that cannot be utilized, such as a screen location. To solve this issue, please follow the steps below.

  • Open a Finder window and select the Go drop down and then Go To Folder.

  • In the Go to Folder dialog enter ~/.roescache and click Go.

  • Highlight everything in the folder and move to trash. Depending on how many ROES clients have been launched in the past, the number of items could be in the thousands.

  • Once that folder is clear, launch a fresh version of the ROES client here!

Q: How do I clear my JAVA cache?

A: A simple clearing of your Java and browser cache may resolve any ROES issues.

Clearing the Java Cache on Mac OSX 10.6 and below:

  • From your Mac Hard Drive, locate your Applications folder, find the Utilities folder within and open the Java Preferences application.

  • In the Java Application window, select the Network tab followed by the Delete Files button followed by OK to clear the temporary file data.

  • When that is complete, return the the Network tab and this time select the View Cache Files button.

  • From this new window, highlight any programs that read ColorInc ROES followed by the red X at the top of the window to remove the application.

  • Once those have both been cleared, launch a fresh version of the ROES client here!
     

Clearing the Java Cache on Mac OSX 10.7 and above:

  • From your Mac Hard Drive, locate your Applications folder, and launch the System Preferences application followed by the Java icon located within.

  • In the Java Application window, select the General tab followed by the Settings button.

  • Once the new pop up window appears, click the Delete Files button followed by OK to clear the temporary file data.

  • When that is complete, return the the General tab and this time select the View button.

  • Once those have both been cleared, launch a fresh version of the ROES client here!

Troubleshooting (PC)

Q: I'm experiencing sending errors using ROES on my Windows system.

A: Common Errors:

  • ROES will not download or will get stuck.

  • The progress bar doesn't move, or ROES says "Waiting …" or "Send Erred Waiting to Retry" when attempting to upload and order.

These errors are most commonly related to the use of AVG or AVAST anti-virus programs. Please download this .pdf guide to help you temporarily disable these pieces of software so that ROES can operate properly.

Please note that Firewalls may also prevent orders from uploading and are most common in office or public settings such as restaurants and hotels.

Q: When I launch ROES, it displays ALL of my images in ALL of my folders across ALL of my drives. How can I fix this?

A: when the program does launch check to see if the "Search Enclosed Folders" button is checked. If it is, uncheck the button before moving on to ordering. The first time after you've unchecked the box, you may notice that all of your files are loading in again. If that's the case, click the X for the first listed folder while holding down the ALT key to remove them all!
