    [@j cohen] Have you cleared cache? If not, try that, and then download again. Or use a different browser (I used Firefox to D/I successfully). I hope you’re successful before the deadline — good luck.

    [@SoftOrbits] The problem isn’t with today’s offer, the problem is that when nemesis and I tried to run Sketch Drawer Pro v1.4 that we had installed the last time it was offered here (March 14, 2014), it opened as “****Unregistered version ****” and a ‘sketched’ image was then saved with a watermark across it.

    In other words, will today’s installation result in an Unregistered version sometime in the future, as March’s did?

    We have just check license key and did not found any problems, it works fine. Please check that you enter it correctly and make sure that activation was not blocked by your antivirus or firewall

    [@nemesis] Thank you for mentioning this. I also D/I this the last time and just tried to use it — the same thing happened to me, unfortunately. I tried using the original email & license key to “re-register” it, but that didn’t work. Strange. I think I’ll wait for other comments before I re-D/I, even though it’s the same version.

    Reply to this comment#82

    Grabbed this the last time it was offered here, and now when I start the program, it plays a warning sound and pops up an error message saying that the license key has already been activated. What’s going on? Don’t want to reinstall if I’ll have the same problem. Never uninstalled or moved it; this is the original install from the last giveaway.

    [@Shaun] and @Everyone having registration issues: Please make sure you are NOT entering any extra spaces at the start or end of the code. That is what is causing the issue.

    Scratch my earlier email to you…I tried the activation code from your site 6 times and was told it was no good…then I went to your confirming email and tried the SAME number from it…wallah !! Worked like a charm. So something may be amiss with the number on your site even though it’s exactly the same to the naked eye.

    Reply to this comment#48OLD COMMENT

    With offers like these can they be used to upgrade to future versions of the program at discount?

    Also, I think it might be nice to see sales on the product at the same time as the free offer. I know this happens at times but at times it is not this way when it clearly should be.

    Case in point is the WinUtilities Free offer. I went to the website and found a sale for lifetime updates for the pro version for $20.00; it seems it would benefit SoS and the developer to make such offers here at the same time as the free offer.

    Downloading was easy, registration was easy, and I found the program to be intuitive and easy to operate. Unfortunately, all of my test sketches looked really bad. The program turned pictures with strong color and detail into indistinct, ghostly figures with glare that washed out beautiful pictures which had no glare prior to the tests. I tried the various settings, and although all the settings produced different end results, still nothing looked good.

    I deleted this program promptly. I would be willing to try it again in the future if later versions would really take a great looking photo and turn it into a great looking sketch. I would really enjoy having a program like this that would turn out a great product.

    (Mr. Boss) – Reply to this comment#44OLD COMMENT

    [@Jerry427] Run it as admin. The issue you are having is not with registration, it is with your computer.

    I got version 1.2 from Glarysoft a few months ago, not sure what “Pro” adds in the version offered here. Program surprised me in how well it worked. It can create some very artistic sketches from a photo. Some effects take a while to run, but it’s a good tradeoff for the quality of the results. I highly recommend this one!

    It is, in fact only the ‘comments’ emails which get filtered, all the confirmations and initial software sale alerts get through just fine, which is why I hadn’t noticed the issue at first!
