As I said in my original post, I loved version 4 and recommended it widely, so was looking forward to trying version 5. But SoftOrbits’ totally ignoring the MANY posts here about the activation issues for this giveaway is very troubling. Their suggestion about uninstalling the old version is clearly NOT the solution, since others posted that they did that and now are left with NO activated version.
It’s bad when there is a glitch in the registration of a product from here, as there sometimes is. But when it results (due to the company ignoring MANY posts) in people losing their older, fully activated product as well, it is time to reconsider taking chances installing products from here. Which is a shame, as in the past this site has been a wonderful resource for users, and a great promotional tool for developers.
