Has anyone managed to get today’s offering to install yet?
I’m getting the message:
“Error while communicating with the server. Installer will now abort”.
I’ve tried redownloading both ‘SharewareOnSale_Giveaway_Capture_Boss_hub.exe’ and ‘Capture Boss.exe’ AND tried running the .exe file with Administrator privileges but still get the same error.Feb 5, 2022 at 7:42 am #19236698BarryGuest
There’s something wrong with their website. Cannot connect.
I get the error message: “HTTP/1.1 New Session Failed”
Does not encourage me to try their software. No thanks, pass.Feb 5, 2022 at 7:42 am #19236699Bruce FraserGuest
I’m getting the same error message when I try to install.Feb 5, 2022 at 8:03 am #19236776Cayce77Guest
I have same error message, it is not works.Feb 5, 2022 at 10:28 am #19237301BeetzmeGuest
Same error message here. Given up!Feb 5, 2022 at 11:51 am #19237531LeikeqGuest
for those with error
will likely be a) virusscan or b)firewall blockage.c) the admin rights allow creating a folder
Noticed 2 or 3 times before ( cause : ? maybe a new installer in use? )
For me allowing those… no issuesFeb 5, 2022 at 1:05 pm #19237681beergasGuest
Ok here. Windows 11 Pro. D/L fast, pre-registered & installed fast. Lifetime, no Updates. Several A/V options to select from at startup. Does open one time to website to let you know installed & offer for Updates ver$ion. Ran CBoss & its few optional tips first time launched. Doesn’t appear to have any Run automatically with Windows to disable from background. Just run when needed to do a capture session. Read the few tips since there’s something about allowing your network access to be available IF using the program in one of the capture modes if required. Program probably pops up a warning if that will be needed once you try to use it with that capture setting/feature @internet. For desktop work not an issue.
Hope you guys try again, maybe whatever was the problem is fixed. D/L offer is for several days here at SOS.
PS I used the SOS option at bottom of choices where says I don’t use Facebook, etc. Then put in my Yahoo address to receive link there — but d/l from the SOS link that pops up. I only use the received Yahoo link if a program will need to be registered first at a program’s website and they send the serial/code to the Yahoo address. That second way seems to work better since program site is looking for an address, not just SOS itself.Feb 5, 2022 at 2:46 pm #19237941MickGuest
Thank you for your suggestions. I managed to get today’s offering installed by disabling my AntiVirus software and running the .exe file as Administrator. (I really wish that this would work for all of the offerings from PCWinSoft. Many of their offerings repeatedly come up with all sorts of errors and won’t install … at least, not on my computer they wont.)
Thanks again, Leikeq.Feb 6, 2022 at 5:07 am #19240807yousungtopGuest

[ @Bruce Fraser]
I tried it again today, and this time it worked perfectly.
One of life’s many mysteries…Feb 6, 2022 at 2:09 pm #19242972Bruce FraserGuest
1) The “Terms and Conditions” say “No free updates; if you update the giveaway, it may become unregistered.
But the very first time I run the software, it says “There is a FREE UPDATE Available!”
2) When I try to change Global options, it says “Run Capture Boss as Administrator to be able to change this option.” I run it as Administrator (right click the shortcut, choose “Run as administrator”), and I still get the same message.
Obviously unreliable software. Uninstalled.
