That's interesting. Another question was posted in regard to that error message here:

http://www.uburst.com/dcforum/ushop_place_order/83.html

Give me the URL and I will investigate it.

Hello Mr. Weiner,

thanks for the quick reply.
the validation error occures only sometimes
not at every order process.
if you want have a look at our site:
http://www.friseurversand.de/
Please note, that i have installed at
the moment only the GERMAN Version of
Ushop, on the International Site of our project,
i use ushop 2.x, so look at the german site
thank you verry much

with best regards

That data validation error occurs when the checksum calculated on uShop's Java-side doesn't equal the checksum calculated on uShop's CGI-side.

What is interesting is that it appears the error is being caused by the "display_cart.html" page being displayed in UNICODE encoding instead of the Standard Western European encoding. ... And I believe this through off the checksum.

We will do some more investigating ourselves and then will release an update if necessary... but in the mean time, below are some instructions on how to disable that checksum-checking ... since it really isn't needed anyway:

Step 1. Open the file ushop-lib.pl with any text editor such as Word Pad or NotePad.

Step 2. Do a search on the following line:

&validate_checksum();

(There will be one occurrance of that line).

Step 3. Comment out that line by placing a "#" sign in front of it, like this:

#&validate_checksum();

Step 4. Save the file (as TEXT if your editor asks) and then try it out!
