    @Everyone: You are welcome!

    [@Chamlin] Uninstall it. Use CCleaner to clean your computer (be sure to backup registry). Restart computer. Reinstall. Also, make sure you downloaded from the link we gave you and not somewhere else.

    [@Brian Davis] Do what I told Chamlin. As for SoS issues, try clearing browser cache + cookies.

    Ashraf, Wondershare PDF Editor installed and registered fine. But when installing the OCR, after choosing English, I get a popup: “please install Wondershare PDF Editor 3.5 or above”. I just installed it…??? Can’t get past this. Rebooted, no change. Any ideas?

    Reply to this comment#72

    [@plumzango-13] What kind of stupid limitation is that. My email cannot have a dash in it. My email cannot have an underscore in it!! My email has to have a 3 character domain!! This is a software company???

  7. plumzango-13

    Reply to this comment#71

    ANSWER: If the email box turns pink/red after you submit the form, that means your email was not accepted and you must use a different email address. We’ve found that emails with special characters and domains that are longer than three letters — e.g. .INFO email addresses — are not accepted.

    When I hit the buttons “Get Editor License” or ” Get OCR License” the cursor goes to the end of the E-Mail field, the field turns pink and “shakes” 3 times. No email ever comes, no confirmation of successful request.
    Tried Firefox, IE, Chrome, Admuncher off, no luck. Please advise.

    I have two problems.

    I got the registration codes for both the editor and the OCR, but when I installed the OCR it never gave me the opportunity to enter the code. I contacted Wondershare support. They seemed clueless. They gave me a link to do it all over again, whereupon the same thing happened.

    On my Firefox, SharewareOnSale is lately showing black instead of white. That makes it difficult to use.

    I needed a PDF conversion program two weeks ago, so I have been trying different converters. This program is much easier, being able to choose multiple files. It is much faster than the others as well and the conversion quality is excellent.

    Reply to this comment#67

    I was so very impressed with the ease and speed of the giveaway version, that I took advantage of the big discount to buy the continuing updates. It works easier and faster, then any other PDF converter I have tried recently.

    Thanks Ashraf for the information about the relationship between Wondershare and iSkysoft.
    But what about Aimersoft PDF Converter and iOrgsoft PDF Converter?
    For information, Aimersoft PDF Converter Pro 3.1.1 is now obsolete and is therefore no longer marketed.
    Wondershare seems to be the genuine developper.

    Thank you, Ashraf. I downloaded this one yesterday, having waited for the fuss to calm down. Both registration eMails arrived promptly. One has to simply read and follow your instructions.

    I gave this program an extensive trial and it works well enough that I will be paying for the license. I scanned various documents and saved them as pdf files and on some I did 2-sided scans even though the back page was blank, just to see what would happen. The program converted almost all of the text without error and did a good job of approximating the garbage on the blank sides, and where there was too much junk data to interpret it created an image of the junk. This performs better than other pdf to word editors I have tried.

  17. seddy

    Reply to this comment#61

    Previous problem from yesterday when converted pdf acted as trial program even after registration has gone away today. Perhaps it takes a while for the registration to take effect. Works great now! I will now consider upgrading to get future updates.

    How does one TURN OFF automatic updates? The program seems to be pre-set under Options to update every day… with two other settings from which to choose… every week or every month, but no option to turn off automatic updates!!! The terms and conditions for this software offer clearly state: “No free updates; if you update the program, you may lose it.”

    Many Many thanks for today’s offer! I had the beta version for this program (without the OCR) from a year or three ago, finally installed it after Xpert PDF Editor decided to quit working on my PC. The beta version was not up to the quality of Xpert PDF, but it did the basics fairly well. Very happy to get a released version! Had no trouble getting registration codes in both G-mail and at Didn’t even go to Spam folder in G-mail. The whole process was quick and easy, I guess it pays to log in later in the day after all the bugs are worked out! Haven’t installed yet, that will be this weekend. So far, I’m a Happy SoS Guy!

    [@Danny] Check junk/spam or try using a different email.

    [@Goldenbarstewart] Use a download manager. BTW, why are you back on SoS after you threatened to sue me? You should probably stay away, least you give my lawyers something to chew on.

    [@joule1309] [@Mihaela] [@alain.ltb] [@geneix] [@Tom M] Welcome!

    [@Alley] Check junk/spam or use a different email. And turn off caps lock because WRITING IN ALL CAPS JUST MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT.

    [@Frank D] Odd. Wondershare is typically very good at this type of stuff. Try contacting their support and see what they say.

    [@seddy] Did you register both portions, the Editor and OCR?

    [@fogeycd2] I believe it is one computer only but you are welcome to try more than one.

    [@fogeycd2] NP.

    [@Chris Collins] Read these comments, please have posted direction/s how…

    [@Ed] iSkysoft PDF Editor and Wondershare PDF Editor as the same program — Wondershare owns iSkysoft. You don’t need to keep both.

    All right. ENOUGH. I was finally able to get the page to SHOW but button to get the OCR key but I have entered and re-entered name and email address and NOT RECEIVED A SINGLE ADDITIONAL EMAIL with ANY codes.

    If you can’t get it to do this simple thing HOW CAN I TRUST THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING WITH SOFTWARE? Why should I not assume your software is poorly coded and destructive?
    Please fix the email send or just email me OCR code.

    And please in the future perform a GOOD BETA TEST before providing to the public. I use and have downloaded quite a lot of programs and have NEVER had this kind of trouble.

    I was able to get the license for Wondershare PDF Editor via the giveaway page link and was able to register it successfully. There are now two selections to get the license for each. To enter the license for Wondershare PDF Editor clik on HOME on the menu bar and on the far right of the drop down menu bar select register and then enter the information, similar to what you do for the Wondershare PDF Editor OCR registration. I still don’t know why the Wondershare PDF Editor installation uninstalled iskysoft PDF Editor and would like to know why. I really wanted to compare the two and am now out the iskysoft PDF Editor.

    The installation issues seem to have been resolved. I tried this with 3 different PDFs that are slightly more complex than text only and it converted them to word doc format just fine. I also tried the edit function to add text to PDFs and while it is a bit more complex than just using the pointer and typing, it also works well. Thank you for the giveaway, this seems like a good product. Because there are two days left I’ll give it a good workout and buy the discount if it passes a couple more tests.

    This is “1-user” — does that mean I can install on more than one PC? or does it mean 1User on only one PC ever? or on multiple PC as long as only 1 user & not concurrent? I’ve seen 1-user licenses with all sorts of such requirements/limits, or without any.
    Anybody know?

    After registering Wondershare PDF Editor and OCR, I can convert a pdf to Word, but when I save it I can only view 5 pages and get the “Trial software” message.

    I was extremely disappointed by the error rate — about 25% — in an OCR’d, high-quality image PDF (a downloaded Google book). This is totally unacceptable for me. How can such a poor showing be tolerated in commercial software?

    Having said that I had the same problem as everyone else, clicked the “get license” button got a “multiple gift..” message and then only the editor key came in the mail.
    After an hour and still no OCR key, I tried again with a different email address and no “multiple gift ..” message this time and both keys came through in the email together. may be a bit random

    [@Giovanni] This is the first time for such a giveaway. I never found that they give away PDF editor and even with free OCR. Dam!!!! In fact I am a Wondershare fan and tried 3 software from them. I tried the OCR and it supports seven languages. Until now I tried only twice the OCR and it was accurate. But I have not tried Aimersoft PDF Converter with OCR. I think PDF editor with OCR is better.

    [@Ed] [@njwsos] Wondershare and iSkysoft are the same company — iSkysoft is owned by Wondershare. Wondershare PDF Editor and iSkysoft PDF Editor are the same program. If I had to pick between them, I’d pick Wondershare PDF Editor because it is newer.

    [@Ashraf] It might solve it for those who haven’t tried yet – I tried already, and now both buttons give me this:

    “Multiple gift registrations are not allowed, please check your mailbox for the free keycode. Thank you for your participation.”

    I only have the one code, for the “PDF Editor OCR” and don’t know if it’s for the editor or the OCR.

  62. Ashraf

    (Mr. Boss) – Reply to this comment#16

    @Everyone having issues: Wondershare just updated the giveaway page. If you have not gotten both keys, go back and fill out the form and hit the “Get Editor License” button for PDF Editor key and “Get OCR License” button for OCR plugin key. Let me know if that solves it.

    Hey Ashraf!
    Unfortunately I’m not at home right now, so I can’t try it!
    So the question is: have you tried the OCR function? How many languages does it support? Is it really accurate?
    And how does it compare with “Aimersoft PDF Converter with OCR”, given away here a few weeks ago?

    Reply to this comment#11

    [@Ashraf] atsoever.

    I did two other registration for testing purpose (after all I’m a software developper :D), I used a new IP / Computer-browser-cookie / name / email each time.
    - First time I got only the OCR licence
    - Second time I got both
    - Third time I got only the main editor licence
    => Conclusion the warning about multiple registration we get when requesting licence IS RELATED to the bug not receiving licence at all (not even in spam or whatever). When I got everything I did have no warning, When I got only one Licence, I did have this warning.

    Anyway, many thanks for this deal Mr Boss :)

    @Everyone only getting one key: Keep in mind, the key for OCR plugin and Wondershare PDF Editor come in two different emails. If you got one email but not the other, check junk/spam for the second email.

    @Everyone having any registration issues: Contact Wondershare at their support page asking for help.

    I downloaded both files and then clicked on “click here to visit the giveaway page.”. I entered my name and email address and clicked on the only “Get License” button that was there. Two messages appeared. One said that the code had been sent to my email address. The other said “Multiple gift registrations are not allowed, please check your mailbox for the free keycode. Thank you for your participation.”.
    I installed the Wondershare PDF editor and it said the program was already installed and it had to uninstall it first. That was funny because I don’t remember installing the program. I clicked on yes and it said it was uninstalling iskysoft PDF editor. Whoa, not the program I was installing. I then installed the Wondershare PDF Editor OCR which installed fine and asked for my registration information, which I had received and entered and registered successfully. I opened Wondershare PDF Editor and it said it was unregistered. I tried to enter the only registration information that I had received which was probably only for Wondershare PDF Editor OCR which did not work. Where do I get the registration information for this? Also, now I am missing iskysoft PDF Editor, which was a previous giveaway, since it was uninstalled by the wicked Wondershare PDF Editor install program.
