You have extra 24 hours…

…to download the updated version of WinPDFEditor.

If you get used to visiting GOTD during the first several hours of a campaign, you might miss that we had to replace the download archive for WinPDFEditor. The version of the application we started the giveaway with appeared to contain a bug, which was fixed almost at once.

Depending on the OS you use it may either be critical or not, but we think that it is be better not to try your luck and re-install the program as soon as this message reaches your Inbox.

NB: the offer is now available on all GOTD versions, but it will only remain live as the second offer of the day on GOTD in English during next 24 giveaway hours. To switch to English version hover your mouse over the flag at the top and click “U.S. English” in the drop-down menu.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Have a nice day!

Love, cookies and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Due to having St. Valentine’s Day right in the middle February is always a very romantic month. We are preparing to open our hearts and express our feelings before the 14th and keep enjoying the unity with someone we truly care about till the end… St. Valentine’s Day is one more reason to say words of love to people our lives won’t be complete without.

And this holiday also provides us with a chance to say “We love you” to a big community of users we have around the world, to each and every member who visits us every day! We wish those who are in love to hold on to this feeling. As for those of you who are still in search we believe you will find your Big Love soon – sometimes all you need to do is to look round! ;)

By the way, are you celebrating?..

Rerun: Picture Collage Maker

Very Merry Hello to everyone!

We believe you are having a wonderful Christmas Holiday, enjoying the presents you received and having fun with your kids, buddies, friends and family. Let all those cheerful moments keep going for you not to feel sorry about wasting time on wrong things when you are back to your daily routine.

Still if you need a distraction (either from holidays or day-to-day routine) GOTD team is always here to help you. And this entry is to inform you that you will get two distraction “points” on the upcoming Monday, December 31. Though we won’t be able to announce the main title at the moment, please get yourself ready for the rerun of Picture Collage Maker we were giving away on Christmas Eve. This rerun is due to activation problems many users experienced on the giveaway day.

We hope this application will become handy on New Year Eve, so please make sure to come and grab it from the main version of GOTD!


Take care,

EverDesk: unusual opportunity and special offer

Hi there!

It’s been a while since we gave away both versions of EverDesk. Though the first campaign was less successful due to lack of full Google support, EverEZ team did not miss a chance to gain revenge during their second go. And it was totally worth it in terms of everything – your attention, curiosity and willingness to share feedback.

And there is a couple of things they have to offer in order to say THANKS to those users who installed the application and registered their EverDesk account during the GOTD promotion:

  1. you can re-install the application at any time by downloading it from www.everdesk.com. Login with your credentials which were used to register your EverDesk profile, and select the DOWNLOAD option;
  2. you can purchase a full EverDesk license for 1/3 of the regular price at www.everdesk.com. Login with your credentials which were used to register your EverDesk profile, and select the BUY FULL LICENSE option.

Please pay attention to the fact, that you can only benefit from these two advantages if you registered your Everdesk account during promotions on GOTD.

Have a nice day!

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!

Thanksgiving comes once a year and provides us with a chance to say thanks to all the people who mean a lot to us. So that’s what we gonna do, we gonna say 3 huge thanks to all our users: the first one is for staying with us no matter what; next goes the one for inspiring us to search and find cool giveaways for each and every day; and the third one is for those tons of feedback you keep leaving – you really help us & developers to improve ourselves!

For sure we admit that we should thank you much more often for having you and for all those things you encourage us to do, still Thanksgiving Day is one of those special days, when we (and many other people around the world) 100% remember to express all our gratitude.

May all your dreams come true this day.


Warm regards,
GOTD team

Sorry for the inconvenience and have a nice weekend.

GOTD wrapper is updated

UPDATE (August 22, 2012): we have modified the wrapper and added digital signature. It should definitely solve the problem for Agnitum Outpost Security.

While being trusted by Microsoft and other security tools, the signature is currently not accepted by AVG. Hopefully they will fix this glitch soon. In case you trust us, please disable the protection for a while (according to our tests it should be enough, no uninstall is needed).

For Norton disabling Firewall only should work in most cases. We’ve also contacted Symantec and are waiting for being “white listed”.

PS: starting now an extra .GCD file is included in every download archive. It is essential for correct installation and activation. If you experience any difficulties, please make sure to extract all files in a separate folder before start.

UPDATE (July 06, 2012): the wrapper was tweaked in accordance with feedback received from users. This update addresses performance issues and should prevent occasional crashes under XP.
UPDATE (July 17, 2012): Themida team has solved the problem with IObit Malware Fighter.

It is not a secret that we use a special program (also known as GOTD wrapper) to protect installation package from usage after the giveaway day is over. Unfortunately the version we were using during previous years was not a perfect solution, which made it liable to be cracked by advanced IT experts.

While it generally made no difference to GOTD users, many vendors had to make registration procedure a tricky thing in attempts to protect their interests. So can we blame them for overwhelming number of on-line activations?

This said improving wrapper was a matter of time (as well as of the reputation of our project). And it is ready to meet the world now. The protection is a kind of double. On the one hand we applied a newer algorithm, on the other hand we included special protection program Themida. Due to those updates the installation can take more time, depending on the configuration of your PC.

Our team gave it a rigid test on many computers with different Windows operation systems, however we think that some users can still face difficulties one time or another. We will appreciate it if you could submit any issue you encounter and include the following details in your message:

  • description of the problem;
  • content of the error message you get (if there is any) and the moment it appears;
  • OS you use (including x32 or x64);
  • security applications you have on your machine (anti-virus/ firewall/ monitoring systems).

Please leave feedback as comments to this post. In case you are not happy about sharing this information here, please feel free to use GOTD contact form. To help your letter reach us quicker add the following subject: “Problem with GOTD installation”.

Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your feedback in advance.


Sincerely,
GOTD team
