iCare Recovery rerun

Dear everybody,

though it was already agreed and announced via social networks on Friday, we would like to also remind you about the rerun in the Blog.

If you one of those several hundred users, who could not register iCare Card Recovery Pro on Thursday, August 23, still want the application badly, make sure to visit GOTD main page on Monday, August 27. The post will go live as the second offer, so please scroll down.

Sorry for the inconvenience and have a nice weekend.


Sincerely,
GOTD team

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.

DVDFab is back

Are you ready for DVDFab Media Player rerun? We hope that you do as it is going to happen today, Friday, August 10. As usually the title will be featured as the second offer on the main version of Giveaway of the Day site.

If you have no idea what the buzz is about, let us tell you a bit more about this repeat. Last Friday, August 3, we were introducing DVDFab Media Player, but the Developer’s server failed to cope all the requests from GOTDers (which is no wonder considering the number of visitors). The issue was not fixed on time, so here is the rerun.

This said, don’t forget to scroll a little bit down the main page to get yourself a copy of this wonderful tool.




Take care,
GOTD team

Get ready for rerun

Hi there!

We are here with the latest news about Leawo Video Accelerator, that was offered on Sunday, June 04. If you are one of those disappointed users, who either did not receive the code via email or had troubles with updates, please be assured that we (GOTD and Leawo teams) have been doing our best to bring this title to you as rerun as soon as possible.

Leawo team apologies for both issues, still the situation with registration was not under their control. They gave a try to a professional codes distribution platform to be ready for huge number of GOTDers, but the platform failed to cope. Thus they needed time to discuss things and make sure it won’t happen again.

This said, please be prepared for the second run of this promotion on the main version of GOTD tomorrow, June 13, and collect and store links to videos, you want to keep on your HD most. ;)


Best regards,
GOTD team

How to fix SnowFox Photo Collage Maker

Hi GOTD-ers,

here is a tiny Wednesday post about installation problems with SnowFox photo tool. The bug has been fixed and new build is availiable right on the developer’s site. The keycode you have from Sunday’s giveaway is valid.

If your copy of SnowFox Photo Collage Maker returns “Failed to create empty document” on start up and crashes, please redownload the new version from Snowfox software website or here and reinstall the software. It took us some time to figure out what the problem was and for developer to implement the changes. We are really sorry for this problem and hope this message will get you right.

If you still have any problems, please feel free to contact SnowFox Software support team at support@snowfoxsoft.com.
