Step-by-Step Installation Instructions

This guide will walk you through installing and configuring TweetCraft 2.0.

Step 0: Users with TweetCraft 1.0 or 1.1 Already Installed
Run the TweetCraft 2.0 installer and it will automatically update TweetCraft 1.0. Alternatively, uninstall TweetCraft 1.0 or 1.1 (Add/Remove Programs) and install TweetCraft 2.0 as described below.

Step 1: Download and Extract the zip file
The first thing you'll want to do is download TweetCraft if you haven't already. After accepting the license, you should be prompted to save TweetCraft.zip to a location on your hard drive.

Step 6 Installation and pre-requisites
TweetCraft will examine your machine and prompt you to download any missing pre-requisites it needs that may not be installed on your PC, most notably, the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 .
  • If your PC does not have all pre-requisites installed, you will be prompted to download and install them. Installing pre-reqs can be time consuming based on a number of factors including your processor, your network connection, and your hard drive speed. The pre-reqs could take 20 minutes or more to install, so please let the installer run if pre-reqs are required.
  • Vista/Windows 7 users with User Account Control (UAC) enabled will receive a UAC prompt when installing TweetCraft. This is expected during installation as TweetCraft must read the registry key to determine the location of your World of Warcraft installation to read/write Tweets and the TweetCraft AddOn.

Step 7 Done
At this point, the installation is done, click the checkbox to launch TweetCraft which will keep TweetCraft running in your system tray.

Note: You must have the TweetCraft client installed and running to send and receive Tweets.

Configuring TweetCraft

Right click on the TC icon in your system tray to bring up the TweetCraft settings context menu. From here you can open Twitter, World of Warcraft, and configure TweetCraft. Click the "TweetCraft Settings" option to configure TweetCraft.

Twitter Credentials
From here, type in your Twitter user name, password, and the World of Warcraft account you want Tweets sent to. After adding your credentials click "Apply" and TweetCraft will attempt to authenticate your credentials with Twitter.
  • If you are authenticated, you will receive the message "Twitter account is valid"
  • If you are not authenticated, you will receive the messsage "Invalid user name or password."

By default, TweetCraft will AutoTweet any screenshots in-game (either by clicking "Print Screen" or clicking the Screenshot button in TweetCraft). If you want to turn this off, uncheck the AutoTweet Screenshots checkbox.

Once complete, click "OK" to close the TweetCraft Settings window.

TweetCraft is now setup and configured!
