Professional screen recording software.

When it comes to converting a document in different formats then the need of a document converter is felt. PDF is normally considered the perfect readable format. But editing content on a document, it becomes necessary to get it converted to an editable format. The editable formats of a file are normally docx, ppt, xls, html and others. This is where the document converter software comes as a great assistant to convert files into desired forms.
The program will help you to change a PDF file to docx, xls, jpg, xml and other forms. Also, the reverse can be done that involves converting editable forms to a non-editable form such as doc, ppt, gif, rtf to pdf. This software is also loaded with extra features that make it very interesting.

NB: The license is valid for 1 year.

Installed it on my Vista SP2 32-bit laptop with 8gig RAM and program throws up a UAC prompt on attempts to execute it which I accept and then the process vanishes silently with no crash reports or anything! Nothing recorded in systems Events viewer either. uninstalled!

I have a feeling that the problem I'm having activating is that I installed it on "XP Pro"; the "Sys Requirements" above state all Windows OS, but something tells me that is not the case.

In any case, the install seemed to go smoothly, the program opened, and I entered Name, Email, and Phone and it continued smoothly, then clicked on "Activate Now" and entered the "key" and clicked "Activate"; that's when the problem started and gave me the following:

Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

COMException

(Clicking continue and then Activate solved nothing. I continued to get the Error; which is, as follows:)

Based upon all the comments & the 1 year license, it's another "Abortion From Hell" so I will have to PASS like so many others. I think the developer has more motives that are not shown here!

Their cart page https://103.233.76.200/Akick_Software_Cart/index.html?p=9&country=US contains content that is non-secure potentially compromising the SSL https state of the page. There is no reason to believe later stages in the purchase pipeline will be more secure so I would not advise inputing any personal/private financial information into those pages until they properly secure their web pages (All of them!)

I installed and then uninstalled. Malware Bytes wouldn't let me even access their website. The program is poorly done. Looks like something from the 1980's. They also wanted a name, email and phone number. Be careful if you download this and do not give any personal info or financial info.

Yes, offer from a typical enough Godaddy company.
$99 for a year's licence is indeed a stiff price for software nobody has ever heard of.
I invested in a new version of a full-scale pdf editor with OCR and converter from a well-known Canadian company with extended 3yr support and got something first class at budget price,

Many PDF documents are merely scanned images of the original, such as found in Google Books. Does this $99 program include OCR capability to convert to other formats? Searching for a word or phrase in a document full of images is a manual process only.

Set it to convert a pdf to word (.doc - no docx option) and got something that looks reasonable, shame about the multiple imbedded para markers and column breaks and other weirdness that makes the output unusable for anything other than printing, or massive manual effort.

Then set it to generate an excel output - again no new - .xlsx macro free filetype option just the .xls that many email and other facilities now consider such a massive security opening that the filetypes are not just quarantined, but banned!

Not really a problem as the resulting file had 25 worksheets, each with a header and NOT data

And the word document generated by the earlier conversion gets all crammed into single cells - again - unusable without substantial VBA scripts to separate the data into appropriate columns, OK that should be to get it into columns - let alone with the data as well aligned as the doc results looked to be.

Add the 1 year usage limit - and that's not going to make it out of the sandbox into a testing environment, let alone a get a recommendation to others.

Indeed the 'quality' makes me start considering the effort the GOTD are putting into vetting ( OK just looking) at their profferings

I have a basic question. How can there be a 79% user rating, as described above, and all the comments I've read are negative or very close to it, in nature? I guess I'm struggling with trying to find why everything offered is rated at least 70%+ approval, but the comments do not reflect that amount of percentages. Numbers never lie, so someone please tell me what's going on.

Thank you

@ Contevou

I noticed that, too! It must be that these negative leaning comments are really "alternate comments" (as in "alternate facts") in an "alternate reality." The whole thing is spooky. Beam me up, Scotty.

Reply   |   Comment by Tom  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Contevou, numbers do often lie... the voting system here is biased towards thumbs up because you have to give a reason to vote thumbs down AND not every reason choice will count as a thumbs down. You click thumbs up and your vote is instantly counted if your public IP has not voted for this giveaway yet. other numbers that lie... opinion pole statistics, theoretical physics mathematics, the numbers and calculations are massaged to get the required results.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Contevou, the user ratings are generated by people clicking on the thumbs up or thumbs down radio icons located at the top of the page. The comments have nothing to do with the approval rating but are telling a they permit us to mark a particular part of the program/registration as unsavoury.

Hope that explains the seeming discrepancy.

Reply   |   Comment by vincebrennan  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Contevou, Because the people who like it just gave it a thumbs up but the people who don't care for it want to let everyone know why they don't like it. Therefore, you are only seeing the negative comments.

Sorry, but this is a HUGE fail. The company EXPLICITLY states the software can convert from PDF to PPTX. It is the the FOURTH feature listed in their Compare chart at their web site. https://www.akick.com/document-converter.html That's an essential feature for me. Imagine my huge disappointment when I discovered there is NO PowerPoint conversion feature for any of the PDF versions that I tried, even one that I converted to PDF today!! I clicked the "?" for help, and wound up at a basic FAQ sheet. Didn't want to write them off, though, so I tried their CHAT feature for support, but found, instead, a web page offering "24 hour support" and an 800 number. Rather than give up, I called and spoke with "Gary." He would not answer my question, but insisted I let him install a "Supreme" software that would allow him to log into my computer and take control. HUH?? I asked a simple question, which he declined to answer, and then want's full access to my computer? Really, this company seems incompetent or shady. Immediate uninstall. Sorry folks. GOTD folks, you do a great job and service, but this product is looking like a smoke and mirrors marketing exercise that may do a disservice to your loyal customers.

I did made a PDF from a website with the PDFmaker of Win10:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AKickDocumentConverter19_20170228/GOTD-En.pdf
And I did a conversion to DOC and TXT:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AKickDocumentConverter19_20170228/GOTD-En.doc
and TXT: GOTD-En.txt
Also I did take a PDF from NASA about Mars. The original I couldn't find anymore, but here is another URL:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mars03rovers.pdf
OCR on that file to DOC:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AKickDocumentConverter19_20170228/Mars-OCR.doc
and TXT: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10366431/_GOTD/AKickDocumentConverter19_20170228/Mars-OCR.txt
And the programma always want to have contact with the internet, otherwise it does not start:

99.99 USD for a simple converter software and it's just valid for 1 year, is it some kind of joke?

Even a free converter software is better than that, well played Akick.

N.T,

I think this is an All in one converter with OCR features. I didn`t find any other software with similar all-in-one feature.

Good Job Akick

A K, I paid $99 for a lifetime license, Free pdf converter the free is limited on how many you convert at a time, with the lifetime license it converts almost anything to any other format. I've had it for 5-6 years and for me it has paid for itself many times over. I was paying another company $35-$45 per pdf to excel fill about 10,000 lines and 45 columns, four times a year to do this. I haven't found any errors in the conversion.

A K,

Sorry, this product has no OCR feature. I try it with several PDF with image embedded, does not work! Aimersoft or Wondershare PDF Converter will do the job better as far as OCR is concerned. Otherwise good results on pure PDF WITH and ONLY with tables.

Alan, thanks. Without OCR a converter program is a no go for me also. GOTD gave away Icecream PDF Converter some time ago which does do OCR and I am quite happy with that one.
