J-E-L-L-O problems

(first of all, yes i failed at making the simplest of all things, jello) So, i followed the instructions. 2 cups hot water, 2 cups cold. can mix in fruit if theyre drained. So I mixed in some fresh pineapples into mine and the stupid jello did not set. its still a liquid not a solid, earlier today i put in some knox gelatine (4 packets). that did not do the trick neither. and its been 96 hours total so time isnt the problem? im guessing A) hot water was too hot and destroyed the original gelatine particles. B) pineapple acid or something else inhibited gelatine from doing its thing. C) 2nd time i put in gelatine the gelatine mixtures temperature was not high enough to "activate" it.

any suggestions of what went wrong would be helpful for the next try. thanks in advance - tom
