I don't normally install anything from the coverdisks on my PC unless someone posts a problem. I just tried to install PhotoImpact XL and it asks for the Serial No. before the installation begins. Obviously if you don't have a number you can't install it. So I tried the link to get the number first, so far I have not had any response.
pj123 I just posted in the Speakers Corner to someone with the same problem. My suggestion was that perhaps because its not the official release date for the magazine yet the site may not be ready. I don't know its just an idea.
Just tried installing it again, having read the "Installation Details" as given in the Magazine page 164.
It cannot be installed without inputting the Serial Number first. You cannot get the Serial Number without logging on to the URL provided in the magazine. I have tried the URL twice with different email addresses and have still not received a Serial Number.
Totally-braindead, never had that problem before.
There is also a problem posted with a problem regarding eye2eye (also on the same DVD) that installed OK for me. Don't see what the Magazine release date has to do with it.
AD ASTRA, well one assumes that Richard the CD Editor negotiates with the publishers and gets permission to issue the programs free on the CD/DVD providing we fill in our details to get the registration code. Most of the "online registrations" take but a few minutes.
Obviously, Ulead has a different system.
Hopefully I will get 2 registration codes because I tried to install it twice and used two different email addresses.
