My PCA June 2007, Issue 143 DVD is available if anyone wants it.

I already have Redshift, Astronomer for Windows and Orbits. None of them come anywhere near a free Star program that I use all the time. SkyGlobe 3.5.

I had a similar experience with Redshift install. Good to learn I'm not alone, thought I was losing it! Any more back from Redshift?

Thanks mitsme for your reply, but no I have had no reply from Redshift, the program just will not install, did you manage to install it?.

I haven't tried since, can only deal with so much frustration. Have you?

This was a bit of a puzzle which could have been helped by more instruction .

Out of curiosity , I clicked on the traffic lights , shown on disc contents , a trailer played and when this was stopped various links had to be clicked to reveal the Key , the Hardware Code and the Secure Key - what a palaver . I also updated Adobe , after a prompt , in order to be able to access these links from the pdf .

I have uninstalled the program as I didn't think it was worth the bother or the space . Experience should have told me that the 'free' stuff offered isn't being given away for no reason .

Should have mentioned - the traffic lights icon was clicked after installation of the program - I couldn't get it to run either at that stage - it just said that it hadn't been activated .

I loaded it three times and uninstalled it three times, it still will not load, it goes through the install but never asks for the code, when it is supposed to have installed a box comes up saying finished and thats it but no program is installed

Do you have any Antivirus or Antispyware software installed which may be blocking registry changes or edits etc which may be required for a correct install?
