Hi,

 

I just found out about this software and was trying to test it, but after I download and install it says this trial has expired and I need to download the updated version from the download section. Than it's just a loop.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Cheers.

Have you ever used it before?

 

If so, you only get one trial period per app.

No, never. Like I said, I just found out about it.

What OS?

Where did you download from?

Uninstall what you have, run a cleanup program like CCleaner, then download from here:  http://www.stardock.com/products/deskscapes/downloads.asp

If that doesn't work,send an email to support@stardock.com  and link to this thread.

Some trials have a "shelf life" and it may be that it has run past that date.

 Trials cannot be updated.

Did as you suggested and this was the result.

Running Win 7 64-bit machine and downloaded the software from the e-mail sent to me.

I just checked the link posted in #3 and received the correct DL link via email.

Version 3.50  added Nov 15 2011.

If you are getting 'outdated' messages it's likely you need to clear your download/browser cache...

It looks like the file CNET is hosting *has* expired.  We'll get with them to get a new one updated.

Thanks for letting us know!

ETA means estimated time of arrival. Stardock makes all kinds of software and not every app can be worked on at the same speed. Be patient, it will be announced when it is ready.
