      I have a problem with Stars client. When I click on the banners with promotions (or on something that should open a link in web browser), I get an error message saying something like "There is no program that can do the requested task".

      I use Windows 8 and everything else works without problems...only this. And it's annoying, since I also can't deposits via Skrill on Stars.


      Anyone else encountered this?

      Hey TiciBoy,

      No problems to report this end although I do have Windows 7. Probably best to ask PokerStars support about this one ;)

      Why can't you deposit via Skrill? I made a deposit albeit late last year via Skrill without any problems?



      Regards,
      Gary

      Well, after you enter skrill email and amount to deposit, web browser should open a window where you enter password and security code...and my Pokerstars client won't open web browser.

      Pokerstars client will only work if you use google chrome. This is stated somewhere on their home page.
      This was changed about 3 weeks ago I think.
      I have google chrome in the background as I don't normally use it. It works when I am on pokerstars only. I use firefox for everything else.
      I hope that helps.

      Hi TheMarxBros3
      Thank you for your help.
      I installed Chrome on my computer and set it up as default browser.

      It does not change anything.

      Do I have to do anything else??

      When you say "in the background" what do you mean?

      thanks again for your help

      I'm sorry but I am now at a loss. I have chrome but it is not my default browser. It only comes on when I use the stars client.
      I guess you will have to go with plan B and contact their support.
      VorpalF2F is the computer expert here. Leave him a message on his page. It is a shot in the dark but he may be able to help.
      Good luck. Sorry I am not more useful but that is the extent of my knowledge in these things. :(
