    Several tries to get my key – no luck. Read these comments and followed suggestions – no luck. Checked box to get DxO newsletter too.
    Should I download again?

    received the download is ready email on 6-15, filled in form for activation code but did not check the newsletter box – never received a code. After reading a bunch of comments about the checkbox, I filled in the form again, this time checking the newsletter box and the code was in my inbox as soon as I switched back to gmail. It did not go to spam – was in primary inbox – subject DxO & Digital Camera Magazine – Activation Code. I was able to activate the app

    [@MujerAlta] I forgot to add that, like all the DXO software I’ve tried, this program is well tested and works without glitches. The controls are tight and there’s no lag time between making an adjustment and seeing the adjustment preview. It’s a keeper for me! There’s only one thing I’d like to see: being able to add it as a plugin to Photoshop Elements so it would fit seamlessly into my workflow.

    Windows Home Premium, i7, 64 bit – no problems downloading, installing and registering. I don’t take too many wide-angle shots of buildings but I do take shots of trees, mountains and the smoke during brushfires so I gave it a try. Brushfire photos are especially frustrating because photos flatten everything and the dramatic plumes of smoke that rise high into the sky are reduced to ho-hum puffs. I tried it out on a photo I had of smoke looming over our neighborhood a few months ago with the sunrise poking through it at the far tree line. I wanted to de-emphasize the homes in the foreground and emphasize the smoke. I don’t know what I’m doing with the program quite yet but managed to make some changes I like. (Don’t know if the link will appear….)

    Can’t get a reg code—the captcha box is not working. Did it case sensitive and not case sensitive just in case. I see others are having this problem for days, with no fix. Guess I gotta let this one (and others from this publisher) go.

    Reply to this comment#115

    I’d like to know a bit more about this software package – but I don’t know how to read these comments. What order are they in?
    Typically, a number of comments come in on a particular day – but they have no time-stamps, and so trying to read the ‘thread’ makes related comments hard to relate.
    Are sub-comments – replies – placed under their antecedent comments, while being posted *after* them, while all other comments seem to be in rising order by time? Time consuming.
    Ashraf – can we have numbered comments, or time-stamps as well as ones for days?

    Downloading the installation file (224 MB) happened fast: in less than 3 minutes. At 13 mbps; that is my maximum download speed. So the server is not busy today…
    I received the activation code in a few seconds. Subject of that mail is “DxO Digital Camera Magazine – Activation Code”.
    Installation started in German: Bitte warten Sie ein Moment… (Please wait a moment…), but after that You can choose English for the rest of the installation.
    Installation was rather fast for such a big file.
    I pasted the activation code in the box, clicked on Activate: ” Your copy of DxO ViewPoint has been successfully activated”.
    Thanks Ashraf!

    My registration code arrived in my gmail account almost immediately — the newsletter subject line is a bit confusing, but it does mention reg code as well) .

    Hello Everyone.

    Thank you for your comments, especially RE: correct file & the Msi Installer (mine was still running after install).

    My code was received immediately with my old Hotmail address, and didn’t go to Spam.

    Outpost gave me a ton of warnings, as usual, but one odd one: The program requested Direct Disk Access. Usually I block those requests if it isn’t a data recovery program that won’t work properly without allowing.

    For example, some games request, I block, and they run fine anyway.

    This program ran fine for me (XPSP3) when blocking Direct Disk Access. If your security software automatically blocks access, you may have a problem running the program.

    If you don’t know if access is requested or not, you may want to try the Outpost giveaway today, May 8th, 2014!

    Thank you to all: DxO Labs, SOS, and previous comments.

    Thanks for freebie DxO ViewPoint offer. I’ve got the download but still awaiting the registration code, even though DxO has confirmed it is on it’s way via email.

    Are others similarly affected, I wonder? At least there is plenty of time.

    Reply to this comment#103

    7 days…. still waiting! Must be something completely wrong with their licensing program. Received two emails from support indicating a key was “on the way shortly”… still nothing.
    Could someone who has had success with installing, give us a basic review of the program? Is it worth all of the effort? thx Brian.

  26. John

    Reply to this comment#102

    Hi everyone,
    I have at last solved the problem. The activation key sent by DxO support was correct. When you download the software you do get a file stating DxO Viewpoint. However, how many of you noticed that when you click to install the software you get a display saying DxO FilmPack3? That was where I stopped installing. If you continue it is in fact Viewpoint that is installed.
    How many people installed without reading what was in front of you. I think we should all be a bit more careful when we install software in the future.
    Anyway, I guess I should now try the software now that all is well.
    DxO support are quick to respond but they too missed the FilmPack3 heading. Remember READ WHAT IS IN FRONT OF YOU!
    Thanks again Ashraf for your continued good work.

  27. Ashraf

    (Mr. Boss) – Reply to this comment#101

    @Everyone that is having issues: Please send an email to DxO support. I’ve talked with them and they are extremely useful — they will send you a key if you have not gotten it. Their support can be found at:

    [@John] I would suggest contacting them again (reply to your ticket). My experience with their support is, they are very good and very helpful. Someone may have sent you the wrong key accidentally.

    Reply to this comment#100

    Hi everyone,
    I got a reply from the company with apologies for the problem with the non-arrival of the code. Great, I thought now I can try the software. When I tried to install it the file that opens and wants to install DxO Film Pack 3. This is another software by the same company.
    What a complete shambles this company has probably just ruined it’s reputation and lost a great many potential customers. Please don’t blame SOS for the problem. Ashraf has only pointed us in the direction of the offer. SOS does a great job and we should be thankful for the work that Ashraf does.

    I have just tried again. This is the 4th attempt. I have now raised a support ticket with the company direct. Told them just how bad the service was and that a great many possible customers will have given up!!
    As always, it pays to have good customers service. If you don’t treat the customer right they will go elsewhere. Good luck to everyone else who wants to try this software.

    I’d pass on this one. No activation code using 3 different email addresses. Apparently some have received and some of those actually worked! I bought the original DXO Optics Pro several years ago, but will probably steer clear of their products in the future…I mean, if you can’t even deliver an activation code…just sayin’.

    Reply to this comment#88

    Boss, I have good news. I just requested a new key, and I received it immediately in my Gmail account. I also solved my problem with this program refusing to install in XP because “another installation was in process.” MsiExec.exe was running continuously from an old and glitched up installation, so a new MSI installation (like DxO) would not proceed. The solution was to disable Windows Installer in Services.MSC, and then to re-enable it to install the DxO MSI. All’s swell that ends swell! :-)

    Reply to this comment#77

    Hello – I’m afraid the activation keys (both the back up and the one I got in email) don’t work. They don’t even have the right formatting for the activation blocks. The activation blocks in the software only take 4 letters each block and there are 5 blocks, whereas the keys given have 5 letters per block and 6 blocks.

    How can we make this work, I’d love to try this software. Thank you so much for your help!

    An additional issue arose for me.I also desired to install the Mac version on a Mac computer. Even though the line item to determine where you wanted to install it was evident it was not accessible and there was no ability to direct it to the external HDD i desired. This was not a problem on the Windows O/S. I elected NOT to install it on the iMac computer.

    DxO makes good programs (although wildly overpriced IMHO). Thanks to the Boss!
    BUT – is anyone else having this problem? I clicked the Download link (Firefox) and the download window says the download speed is varying from 10 – 100 KB/Sec, and the download time is more than an hour (for a 225 Mb Download!). I tried downloading it in Chrome and get the same thing. Worth waiting for, I guess, but I’m wondering if others are experiencing this too.

    @Everyone: I’m in talks with DxO to see when (if) the registration page will be fixed. I’ll open this giveaway again once it works. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Downloaded and intalled fine enough and really excited but the registration to get a licence seems to be bust – it isn’t sending out licences, unless it is manually done, wherein they will have a backlog on Monday morning. Anyhoo, I just hope the licence key appears by email tomorrow. This is the first time I have had a problem with licences.

    It seems that other people are confronted to the same problem (same giveaway posted at some another website):

    Thanks for that krug3r. It makes sense, because I don’t have any relevant Adobe products. I was using advanced installation, and wondering how I could choose between the various plugins to use with Irfanview, until I realised that the installer wouldn’t let me select any of the Adobe CS ones. I thought it was funny to include the apparent option and then deny access, but your post explains it. SO presumably the Lightroom one will work with Irfanview, once I get the license sorted (Irfanview won’t load it at present)

    Wrong, if you select an advanced installation”, the installer dectecte your Adobe application and give a choice between plug-in and the standalone app or both.

    Available in this installer :
    standalone app, photoshop plug-in for CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, CC and Lightroom

    Just a note that the free giveaway is version 1.2.1 and the paid software is ver 2.1.4
    It is stated clearly on this site but the free page has a link to “DxO ViewPoint” as :

    and the paid version has a link to:”DxO ViewPoint 2″ as:

    It is actually version 2.1.4 that is described on that page.

    If you want to know what features version 1.2.1 has, I found an (unofficial) changelog here:

    If you’re interested in the features of ver 2.1.4, I’d suggest getting a trial version of that first to assess whether to buy it rather than trying the free ver 1.2.1

    To clarify, last time’s offering was plug-in. This time it seems to be a standalone app, with only a Viewpoint Lightroom plug-in offered (the Photoshop CS options are not available during installation).

    And I haven’t had my license key yet either. It is possible that since this promo runs for so long that DxO might not be working Sundays. Anyway, my previous experience does not suggest anything malevolent is happening, so I am expecting good things!

    Well the Optics Pro plugin given away in the last DxO giveaway certainly expanded the abilities of Irfanview nicely, so I’ve high hopes for this one too. I had never heard of DxO before, but the previous software seems great. I hoping to use this one with photos of LP sleeves, which at about 12″ (305 mm) square are too big to scan on an A4/letter scanner. The impression is a specialist developer introducing their tools to a wider market, and they’re certainly building brand awareness with me! THANKS to Ashraf/ Mr Boss and especially to DxO.

    [@Gde] You are welcome! Yeah, we’ve had a great run in recent times. I’m glad you enjoy the giveaways we feature and I’m glad you are willing and able to spend $$$ on software you enjoy because, as much as we all love free money has to come from somewhere to fund these developers. So if you like a program and it is being offered in a legitimate sale, why not?

    Wow. Another home run in the pro-photo software department: OnOne, Topaz and now DxO!
    I’ve used their Film Pack for a few years with great results and I’m excited to see if what I’ve heard about ViewPoint is true. Some say it’s the Best perspective correction product around (at 225 MB it better be good).
    I gotta go shoot some nicely distorted wide-angle shots today and play around today. I may have to come back and pick up ViewPoint 2 before the sale is over, $50 seems very fair.
    Thanks Ashraf and thanks DxO.
