Need help with EVEmon.

I said I was going to do a comics post, but this EVEmon this is really pissing me off. I've scoured the forums and can't seem to find an answer.

A lot of people seem to have a problem getting the right API key and forget to log out. That is not my problem.

My problem is that once I input the wife's usercode and API, it reads hers just fine but forgets mine. To get it back to reading mine, I'd have to re-input my own API but then it forgets hers.

What I'm looking for is a way to have two users and APIs being read at the same time.

I even tried seeing if I could run two EVEmon clients at the same time, but it doesn't want to do that either.

I will wire a few million isk to whoever can help me with this.

I can't understand your issue - EVEmon for me does work in this regard, I have 3 seperate EVE accounts and 3 sep accounts being monitored!.

I have found sometimes though when evemon upgrades it breaks its storage of the keys - to fix this I simply update one key and replace - it then magically makes all 3 chars work.

If you continue to have issues and are about later, you could email me from 19:00-20:00 EVE time and I could have a look with you (remote desktop sharing or similar)

It sounds like a glitch. I swear I've gone over the options several times and there's nothing wrong there.

Maybe I should start with a reinstall.

I'm not sure why you're having this problem, but a couple of troubleshooting questions:

What OS are you running on?

What version of EVEMon do you have installed? Mine is If you're not using this version, you might want to update, then try again.

What are your General and Update settings set to? (perhaps differences compared with my configuration, which works fine, will suggest a possible cause for your problem)

BTW, if anything I offer helps, save your ISK--or donate it to the EVEMon team.

The latest version of EVEmon. I downloaded and installed it only a few weeks ago.

I don't think my settings are the issue as I've been over them several times. I'd give you specifics but I'm not at my home PC atm. I'll go over them one more time and if I don't get it solved I'm going to try a reinstall.

I would also guess that reinstall would be your best guess. But if that still don't work, install it on both of your accounts on the computer? (Sucky solution I know).

Post on the official EVEMon thread and maybe the developers will give you a message.

Been there, done that!

Delete your cookies in your web browser and log back onto the web site to grab your API.

I'm running a single instance of EvEMon with multiple userID/API key pairs with no issues. I just removed my characters and seemed to be able to re-add them without problems:

File/Add Character
Paste user ID and API key
Select character(s)
Hit Ok

Could you post what you're doing?

Ignore all the heathens! THey know not of what they speak!


I don't know what's wrong, but try this:

In EVEMON go File->Save Settings. That will create an XML file of your current characters.

Then open the saved file in notepad and make the appropriate changes to the user and API fields for the two characters.

Then in EVEMon go File->Restore Settings. See if that fixes the confusion.

Reinstalled, reinputted the APIs and it works.
