Comic Vine Scraper 3 years 7 months ago #39113

When I try to run the comic vine scraper, which I've used in the past without a problem, it says "an unexpected error has occurred" and freezes. This happens even if I'm only scraping a single book. I installed the latest version of CR, and that didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions?

Does it give you the option to save out a log file when the error occurs? If so, save it and post a copy here.

Problem solved. I was running an older version of the scraper. I didn't see from the main download page that a new one existed. It works fine now. Thanks!

Sounds like Comic Vine has banned my API key again. :dry:

I'll have to talk to them and see if they can renew it. For now, you can get your own API key and use it in Comic Vine Scraper...this will fix the problem.

Instructions for how to do this are here, under "API Key":

I can confirm that just getting your own API key (which is incredibly simple) fixes the problem. Everyone should probably have been doing this since the beginning, really.

Red Joseph, it looks like you might be using an older version of the scraper. Latest version is 1.0.77. You can get it here:
