magicBlock

http://vvisoft.com/

magicBlock doesn’t interfere with the usage of magicJack - you can still make and receive calls with a normal phone. It stops the intrusive pop-up window from disrupting whatever your doing whenever someone in your home picks up the phone.

When magicBlock is enabled, the sparse magicJack functions are still available by right-clicking over it’s tray icon.

magicBlock works on Microsoft Windows 2000, XP or Vista and requires .NET Framework 3.0.

magicBlock is Freeware!

Enjoy!

p.s. - any word about magicJack + Linux?

Bravo. I'm sure I'm not the first, but I am definitely a downloader of this one. I love my Magic Jack, but the popup does get annoying at times.

My beef with this app is that not only does it stop the popup when you receive or make a call, it also stops it when you try to see it yourself, like when clicking on the tray icon for example. I switch between phone & handset regularly, and I need to see the softphone in order to dial in handset mode. It wouuld be great if this could be modified to know the difference between a popup and a user requesting to maximize the softphone.

PostPosted: Thu Sep 04, 2008 11:55 pm    Post subject: magicBlock and XPe

For some reason this magicBlock won't load and initiate its .exe file on my HP 5710 running XPe.

When I tried to run this 1.2 version of the software, it just sets an error message stating that magicBlock.exe has failed to initiate properly and sets a code of (0xc0000135). Re-installed it several times with no luck. Works on my Desktop with no problems, just doesn't want to work with the XPe OS.

Looks like NelsonDonnel found the answer to his problem. Here's a comment I found on the magicBlock website.

Quote:
magicBlock will not run or initiate properly if you donít have NET 3.0 or higher installed. Thatís a pretty good size file to download and install on a Thin Client that only has a 512 DOM, actually too large, so this program is not going to be that popular for those 5710 Thin Clients that arenít running a 1 GB DOM with 512 MBs of memory.

wow, I'm glad I'm going to try the 8GB DOM soon, on my NEW in the BOX T5710, and didn't get the smaller one yet.

didn't MJ one time say you just needed .NET 2.0 ... ?

Yeah. Thanks, indeed. Works great. If I do for some reason need to see the soft phone, I just click the red dot in the task bar and un-check "Block MagicJack"

Great little app. Thanks again!

Your correct on that .NET 2.0 issue. After I installed a 1GB Transend DOM card, I installed the modified Stroths T5700 v1.2 XPe OS which had the NET 2.0 packaged in it instead of using the standard HP XPe OS and the magicBlock 1.2 installed worked perfectly. Very Happy

Thanks very much for this. I was getting quite annoyed having whatever I was doing minimize (like playing a game) for the magic jack softphone to popup upon incoming calls. I can hear my phone ring, I don't need the softphone popping up too.

One little problem...

When I'm gaming...BF2, COD4, what have you...the popup is blocked but the code in the popup still switches to the desktop which really sucks.

Any cures for that???

Hey Sarge. Nice to see you here! Smile

Check out my reply on our forums. Your other option is to run MJ as a service. This gets rid of the interface altogether (if you configure it to *not* interact witrh the desktop. Of course this really doesn't work if you actually use the interface (i.e. headset calling). I don't use a headset so it works perfectly for me.

Here is the post about running MJ as a service:

Hope this helps!

Thanks, I will give this a try on one of my other PC's. I wound up installing MJ as a service after I couldn't find any way to make MJblock keep MJ from stealing focus. I read a lot on the net trying to find something, anything that could do this. What I gathered was that if an app is written in such a way that it insists on getting focus, there was basically nothing that could be done to prevent it.

I will be curious to see if the app you wrote will do something that MJblock couldn't do. Thanks for your efforts!

This program blocks magicjack, but it still loses focus from what you are doing. I play world of warcraft and whenever the magicjack popup needs to come up, it still needs to minimize my window and loses focus from what I currently do. Is there any fix for this?

It's all games...

Not hard to test this. Just try any game you want... then pick up your phone and turn it on you'll see your game go to the desktop soon after.

Worthless for me. I use to use the DO NOT DISTURB but they took that function out, Now I just shut down MJ all together when I play a game.

I too am having trouble with interaction of computer function. When I make a call my secretary gets her typing interrupted. I stopped the pop-up window with Magic block, but still the interruption in typing. Anyone have suggestions?

If I hardwired to a separate computer would that stop it? Even if I come from the same router?

It may be a drive letter conflict. Try this:

-power down
-unplug MJ
-power up and allow boot to complete
-plug MJ back in

If that doesn't work, then search the MJ website FAQ for "uninstall" to download and run the MJ uninstall utility (with your MJ unplugged). Afterwards, reboot, and plug the MJ back in.

I forgot to mention, if the hd you added connects via usb, you should disconnect it and see if MJ loads. If so, you will need a powered usb hub.

PostPosted: Tue Jan 19, 2010 5:33 am    Post subject: Better than magicBlock is to run Magicjack as a service

MagicBlock stopped working about two weeks ago (dialtone won't go away unless I disable MagicMlock), so I've decided to run MJ as a service. There used to be a list of instructions posted to this site, but now someone developed a little app that does all the work for you.

The benefits are that as a service you do not need to be logged in as a specific user to use MJ and the opo-up will no longer bother you. We have five shared accounts on the PC and my kids no longer need to have
The downside is that the Softphone is no longer avaiailable in the system tray. As we don't use the soft phone at all, this is a great solution.

Took me about 45 seconds to install and works great.
Free download at: http://www.evanvaughan.com/magicjack.aspx
Enjoy!

FREE "Magicsilence" Plugin Tool
Popup Dialer Window Manager for magicJack
for Windows XP/Vista/7

SYNOPSIS: YOUR WORK STAYS FOCUSED AND THE DIALER WINDOW STAYS CLOSED IN THE TRAYBAR UNTIL YOU DECIDE TO OPEN IT.

The "Magicsilence" Plugin tool gives you full control over the magicJack dialer window providing you with the ability to maintain focus on your primary computer activities. Unless you decide to manually open it, the magicJack dialer window will remain closed even during incoming and outgoing calls.

You can manually open the magicJack dialer window at any time as you normally do (by double left mouse clicking on the magicJack dialer icon) in case you want to check something or decide to use a headset for your call. The only difference is that you are now in control and whatever you are working on remains focused even when a new call is placed or arrives.

"Magicsilence" may be used by itself or alongside our popular "Magicfeatures", "Skyjack" and "Xlitejack" software plugins. In the event it does not meet your needs, a complete uninstall application is included.

The new "MagicSilence" Plugin Tool is ABSOLUTELY FREE and can be downloaded at http://tools.pcphonesoft.com OR http://www.magicsilence.com .

I posted this over at the vvisoft website.

I have encountered a strange problem with MagicBlock. I am using Vtech cordless phones and when I have MB blocking MJ, I cannot break dialtone if I first draw dialtone then try to dial a number. Tried this from several of my phones. However, I can call okay if I first key in the number then press the talk key to dial or when I use a number stored in the directory. I can turn off blocking and everything works okay. I am running XP Pro and have the following Microsoft .net Framework applications installed: 1.1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, & 3.5 SP1.

There is a nasty bug in the magicJack dialer that does NOT allow dialtone to stop if the dialer window is minimized to the traybar during dialing. You can easily reproduce the problem by going offhook to place a call and then manually closing the magicJack dialer window back to the traybar before you dial any digits.

I suggest you give our free Magicsilence plugin tool a spin. It includes a fix for the bug above and dialtone does stop normally.

A couple of other upsides are that you can also manually open the magicJack dialer window at any time and there are no quick flash "pop-up" windows as there are with other solutions.

Magicsilence can be downloaded at http://tools.pcphonesoft.com OR http://www.magicsilence.com .

The one feature that magicsilence has that magicblock does not, is the ability to double-click on the mj tray icon to actually open mj up. If you want to maximize mj with magicblock you have to left-click magicblock tray icon and then uncheck "Block MagicJack Popup". I would like to see this functionality added to magicblock. Otherwise I think they function similarly.

The problems I have with magicsilence are:
(1) it causes mj to ask me to re-register everytime I startup computer, and
(2) everytime I shutdown my computer it causes mj to throw an Application Error and pauses the shutdown process until I acknowledge it.

Although magicblock is missing a little functionality, I prefer that to having the errors of magicsilence.

Magicblock seems to work better now than before for keeping the softphone hidden. Before the latest update I would always see the softphone for a second now I don't see it at all.
