Anyone from AOMEI or GotD have explanation for Pro status of program reverting back to Standard after registration, shutdown, restart?

Installation went well and first time open the app to enter the code. Then it became the pro version. Then I closed it, and opened it again, it changed back to standard edition. I had to click on the register button to enter the code again. It said register successful and turned into pro version. If I exit and reopen, it will become the standard edition again. This is weird. Why? OS is Windows Vista 64bit.

Gosh, I've installed the programme, AFTER getting a message that the file was corrupted (so why did it eventually install??) -- but I cannot find ANYWHERE a place to stick the licence number!

Did it pick it up automatically on installation? Otherwise I am worried that this WILL NOT LAST A DAY!

Where should I CLICK to even see that it HAS been registered? There is absolutely no obvious or less-than-obvious place for any licence numeber -- very fustrating.....

The install wants to uninstall my AOMEI PA version 6 which has a lifetime license. So unless version 8.5 has more compelling features, I'll take a pass on this.

Hello Helen!

I see. But may i say that you need a better e-mail management for this? One thing is not wanting the newsletter, another one being unable to get the giveaway (Since i have no social media the e-mail link is the only way).

And what about i change my mind and i want to subscribe again?

No issues installing ....the install package politely asked if I wanted to uninstall a previous version - and it did and then installed the updated version. Nice app, nice interface too. No issues with registration either. Did not have to disable my antivirus.

thanks for the giveaway.

Grab this asap. Best program out there bar none. I am a software junkie and a few days ago I needed to merge 2 partitions. Most of them ( Mini Tool, EaseUS etc) would only merge on reboot and yet none worked. Tried this and it worked fine. And many usefull other tools like recovery, OS Clone etc. And it's funny, I have a scroll wheel on my mouse and 9 hard drive yet this is one of the few where the wheel allows me to scroll back and forth.

I've tried in both a win7 32-bit & win10 64-bit VMs, & had to use the standard or free version of Partition Assistant to get it to register to Pro -- the GOTD install appears to register but restarting the app the registration key & upgrade icons are there -- with the standard version it goes away & stays away. Otherwise many of the files making up AOMEI Partition Assistant are updated going from 8.2 -> 8.5, & also 8.5 std. -> 8.5 GOTD, though I haven't found a changelog.

It's a good app that's worked well for me -- I add it to all our Windows devices. I only use it very occasionally, rarely to tweak partition sizes, and more often to get rid of the extra win10 recovery partitions that happen every so often with win10 version updates/upgrades. In either case it's easier to have it already installed than to bother with boot disks/drives or downloading & installing partitioning software.

That said, while better than earlier versions, AOMEI's bootable USB sticks &/or their WinPE environ installed to the hard disk doesn't work for every device. While Partition Assistant Pro includes a tool to create Windows To Go drives, I prefer to use the free Rufus because of that.

Note that previous versions of this software offered by GOTD were a Lifetime license, whereas today's giveaway is a 1-year license only. (And previous versions should still work fine, if they're not too old. I have version 6.0, from 2015.)

So if you have a previous version, it's probably worth keeping that instead, rather than upgrading - or a year from now you won't have a licensed version at all.

CheeseBag,

Noticed the change in licensing terms when 8.2 was on GOTD in June -- hasn't been a year yet so don't know if the limitation exists, or if it's just a matter of the wording on the GOTD page not being updated to reflect actual policy, e.g. the page always shows XP compatibility, but very often that's not the case. If the limit does exist, & if Partition Assistant Pro isn't offered again before that 1 year license expires, my guess is that it would just revert to the Standard version, which is always free, & will do most all of the stuff most people use partitioning software for.

CheeseBag,
Yes - noticed that..... :-( Kept the 6.5 version on the XP box, installed the 8.5 on W7. Smooth install, thank you very much. Usually I do not install the time limited (6 or 12 month) offers. Much of the software is not used daily or often, way too frustrating to try using it for the first time a year later, finding out that it is already expired.

Jim,

Google, e.g.

stackoverflow[.]com/questions/17842981/the-procedure-entry-point-gettickcount64-could-not-be-located-in-the-dynamic-l

From a Very Quick look seems like it might be an XP problem, as in the app isn't compatible with XP, and yes, I know the AOMEI page says it's XP compatible, but there's so few people running XP, if it is incompatible, maybe they either don't get enough complaints to fell they need to update their page, or they don't want to bother.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Jim, maybe You have Windows XP. In the description, also on their site, they state that it works with XP, instead gettickcount64 requires at least Windows Vista.

I tried to install AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro 8.5 on my computer with Windows 10 64 Pro English 1909.
It finds that there is already installed 8.2 and wants to remove it.
But it fails since the uninstall data files for 8.2 are empty.

Rodolfo Giovanninetti, is version 8.2 still installed or did you uninstall it? If it is still installed but the uninstaller is broken as far as this programmers installer is concerened can you try to uninstal it manually? Or if you still have the installer from their website for the 8.2 pro demo you could try re-installing it to repair the installation and then uninstall it cleanly and try again... or if all else fails extract the pro 8.5 demo from their website and extract it's contents using innoextractor and running it manually from the extracted app folder and using the giveaway license number to activate it... I did the latter which allows me to have the previous Pro 6.1 and to try this without having to uninstall the older non-expiring licensed edition.

OldGuy, What i got out of this is that you DON'T run an install, you just drag out the "app" folder, put it where you want it, and run it like a portable app. By now it may be too late to register it to make it pro, but using the GAOTD license code worked for me last night.

Terry I, 8.2 was an nexpiring 1 year license too... so I did not risk losing an older non-expiring pro license ... got oddles of 3rd party partition managers so not exactly crying out for the latest expiring licensed products. Pro 6.1 was the last giveaway of this product that had a non-expiring license. I *guess* if you have migrated to the 8.x expiring license models and no longer have pro 6.1 you might as well install the free expiring giveaway updates as that should extend the license so it expires later down the road than the previous 8.x expiring license.

Dattatraya Vaidya,

My guess is that either A) the part about the license expiring is inaccurate, or B) it reverts to the standard [free] version, which still does what most people use partitioning apps for.

I downloaded this and ran setup, nothing happened except that I was taken to the AEOMI website where it said that it was registered successfully, however, there is no sign of the program on my PC.

I already have v8.2 and when I access the icon that is what I get, so where is v8.5?

Reply   |   Comment by Don Armour  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Don Armour, you have to disable your AV such as Avast for the installation to work.

Tester, I am suspicious of programs that require me to disable my AV before I can install them, why would they need to do that if they are clean?

I added setup.exe as an exception in Avast, restarted and tried again, same result.

I guess I'll stick with v 8.2 for the time being.

It neither uninstalled nor installed anything.

Don Armour,

"Tester, I am suspicious of programs that require me to disable my AV before I can install them, why would they need to do that if they are clean?"

And I'm suspicious of security software that has problems with false positives. :) It's only some, not all brands of AV software that falsely flags the GOTD setup files [wrapper], so you have to decide if Avast is better in this case, catching something other top rated AV software misses, or if other brands are better because the Avast devs can't always figure out what's safe & what's not.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Don Armour, Frequently, GAOTD has packages that Avast and a few other Anti-Virus programs don't like. I also use Avast and all you have to do is right click on the icon in your task bar, select shields control and select "disable for 10 minutes". I do this all the time. The programs here on GAOTD are safe to install without your AV active.

Reply   |   Comment by Dean Berglund  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Dean Berglund, Thanks for that, sadly, the installation period has now expired, so I can't successfully run the setup program despite the fact that the AEOMI website says that it is activated.

Nevertheless, I shall remember that advice for the next time I hit this problem.

Again, thanks.

One of the best soft for managing disk partitions. I am using the free version of AOMEI Partition Assistant and it is always updating along with Windows 10. This is a very important function because of using older version on newest Windows could cause serious errors and lose data. This giveaway version is the best solution at least in one year with many advance functions than free version. Suggest to you for rescued tool USB.

Kevin Bui,

"... it is always updating along with Windows 10. This is a very important function because of using older version on newest Windows could cause serious errors and lose data."

Software updates are cool, But, they're not any sort of guarantee. If Microsoft updates something in win10 that prevents Partition Assistant from working properly, which hasn't happened AFAIK with much earlier versions of Partition Assistant, then having the latest version of Partition Assistant *may* help, but only if that's what the update fixed, and if the update actually fixed the problem. There's also the chance that something breaks, or just doesn't work right one time out of a hundred [or thousands].

If you're after safety, Before you do anything with partitions, perform a disk/partition image backup that you know you can restore.

With current generations of PCs it makes little sense to create partitions because many brand PCs are sold with 3 partitions. To know; C: \ boot SSD - D: \ Data and E: \ Restore, where all OS installation files are located. If you have enough USB (3) ports, it's no problem to have 1 (2) terra SSDs. Laptops ???

Reply   |   Comment by Francis  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-10)

Francis,

Win10 normally uses 1 FAT32 partition for the boot files, 1 16 MB partition for Windows use, 1 Recovery partition [usually 500 MB], & the Windows system partition where Windows lives. Only that Windows system partition normally has a drive letter, C: -- the others will show up in partitioning software, & Windows Disk Mgmt, but they should be protected. The company that made the device may optionally add their own partition(s) to store device or brand specific files, usually to help with setup &/or service. If you have something other than that, it *might* be a good idea to start over & install win10 fresh.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Francis, It is not a good thing to add SSD via USB ports for general storage expansion since TRIM does not function over Mass storage device or any other current USB device storage interface techniques. If one had a SATA optical bay in a laptop one can generally buy a 2.5" SATA drive converter to fit an extra SATA drive in place of the optical drive and the laptop will see an extra 2.5" SATA SSD as a new local fixed disk and run it at full design speed and support TRIM in windows 7 and above. If the PC is not a laptop then install the extra SSD internally to any spare SATA port on the motherboard. USB Superspeed or high speed connection is a last resort for SSD storage expansion in my expereince.
BTW most branded PC's are sold nowadays with 4 or more partitions, and if a single SSD do not include a D: data drive letter but do include 1 or more hidden partitions as well as system drive and 1 or more partitions invloved in factory restoration. Generally speaking you will only encounter a seperate DATA drive if an extra internal physical drive is installed in addition to a small system SSD drive. The addition of a D: DATA drive letter on a single SSD based system usually only gets added by an end user using a partition program to avoid user files becoming interlaced with system files on the system drive to make it easier when re-installing windows on the C: drive at a later date.
