Upgrade whatsapp to newest version and broke?
« on: March 01, 2014, 07:23:17 AM »
After upgrading whatsapp to the newest version today is not working anymore and i got this message " The application whatsapp has stopped unexpectedly. please try again. )
I have this problem 4 or 5 times and i always solve it trying so many times to enter, but this time it seems like its not going to work.
WHat can i do? What the new version added that broke my whatsapp application? I have it in my PC cause i dont have a cell phone.
Please help, uninstall is not an option because i have so many pics and contacts in my list, can someone tell me what went wrong with the new version??

There are 2 ways to solve it, either re-download whatsapp from the sidepanel or download the previous version (WhatsApp 2.11.152) from www.androiddrawer.com.

To re-download whatsapp in the sidepanel, may be trciky you have to be carefull not to double-click:
- press windows + R
- paste %userprofile%\youwave in the dialog box
- delete all files starting with com.whatsapp
- Go to View > Online Content
- Click whatsapp only once and wait
- Than re-install whatsapp

I had the same issue after updating Whatsapp. It failed to open.

I re-installed the previous version, but now I am unable to open the app, as I am prompted to download the latest version of Whatsapp. I am not given any other choice other than to install the latest version of Whatsapp. That ain't working for me

Ok, got Whatsapp working again  :)

I re-installed an older installation file, then changed the date of my Youwave, and had to 'FORCE STOP' Whatsapp in 'app manager' to finally bypass the updating to latest version message. Whatsapp restored all my old messages and contacts, and it's good to go as before  :D

It seems that the latest whatsapp update does not work on youwave causing a crash to desktop every time.

I updated but had to reinstall an earlier version of whatsapp.

The problem is that the update notifications whatsapp keeps sending seem to suggest that previous versions of whatsapp will not work in 4 days time.
