Hello. I downloaded Ashampoo Home Design 5 from giveawayoftheday.com now.

The application's help system shows that a person can export (& import?) .OBJ 3D files... but the IMPORT & EXPORT MENUs do not show this .OBJ format.

How can I add 3D objects to the scene? Please assist.

Thank you!

I always love their products. I hope to get enough time to use this. Simple to install with no hoops to jump through.

I installed this from GOTD on Nov. 21, 2019. It still runs as Ashampoo Home Design 5 stating that my installed version is up to date.

Hi I have many Ashampoo products and I got this one when it was version 2; then, I purchased it.

These folks make great products all around.

The program has saved me so very, very much time --- welll worth the price. I have not tried this version yet.

I highly recommend this for anyone building ro remodeling a home or addition!

Installed and licenced easily enough (it's a large download). Activation email arrived instantly, and installation was in English (you have the option to change language within the programme - click the green down arrow top left of programme, then settings, language). Will take a bit of practice to learn how to use this, but there appear to be training videos etc. All in all looks to be a good programme if you need to do some home design work (which we do, so it is well timed for us).

James,
Thanks to your tip about the (unmarked / unlabelled) green arrow, I was able to change my German installation into English. Of course, rather than: Settings --> Language, I had to choose: Einstellungen --> Sprache, since all menu options were auf Deutsch.

Oddly, all the windows during the installation process were in English. I did not see any German until the program started upon finishing installation.

Developers, language options should be presented during installation as it is difficult / impossible after installation without some guidance, since all the options are in a different language.

Another oddity, all the language choices in my German language installation are presented in English rather than the actual language.

For example, if I wanted the Russian language version, I would look for "Русский (Россия)" but that is not an option. Instead, I would have to know enough English to choose "Russian (Russia)" from the English menu (even though my installation was in German)

After logging into Ashampoo, I ran the setup, the second page of the setup wants me to "Get free activation key" but the button does nothing. In the Readme file, it says "To activate your free copy request the registration key by pressing "Get free activation key" button in the program window". I can't install the program to get to that window, I am stuck in Setup, there is no way for me to advance to the program. Is that the way it works for everyone? You got the key in Setup and it worked?

Reply   |   Comment by Rupert  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Rupert, yes. First step in the installation was a install-window appearing asking me to get free activation key. Clicked that button, it opened a browser window. Insert email address in browser window. Verification email arrived (gmail put it in spam, as usual, but I expected that so was ready to move it to the inbox). Verified email, entered details, and the full activation key was displayed to copy-paste back into the installation window.

James, thank you. When I clicked that button for the activation key, nothing happened. I am currently downloading the offer again, hopefully that button will be active. It's such a large file, I didn't want to do it again without being sure that something was amiss (other than my aging brain). So thank you again. Rupert (fingers crossed)

James, no luck so I wrote to Ashampoo support, I doubt if I will hear back before this offer expires though. Oh well, we tried. Thanks again.

Reply   |   Comment by Rupert  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Rupert,

I think I see what is confusing to you and you do have a good point. The statement in the Ashampoo_readme.txt file uses the word "program" when it would have been better to have used "setup."

The prompt to get a registration key does not occur in the actual program; it occurs in the setup, which is also a program.

Ashampoo and your comment:
"To activate your free copy request the registration key by pressing "Get free activation key" button in the program window". I can't install the program to get to that window.

If the use of "program" had been "setup" would that have made more sense? As in:

"To activate your free copy request the registration key by pressing "Get free activation key" button in the setup window".

One other thing you should check is to see if your browser opened the Ashampoo page in the background. I have encountered that scenario before, and only discovered it when I closed the other programs in front of it.

Another thing that might work is to close your browser, then run the setup.exe program. There are cases where the browser will not change if already open, but if not already started, will start up and go to the correct page.

Even though the offer has expired on GOTD, you might find one of these suggestions works. If so, then see if Ashampoo will still show a key.

Best of luck to you.

Hi Gary, thank you for all of your ideas. I was sure you had nailed it with your last idea, so I shut the computer down and rebooted, I did not let my browser and anything else that shows up open. From my desktop I opened setup and happily pressed the delinquent button but sadly no joy. So that's that. We will be moving soon (downsizing) and I had thought this program might help us in our new place. I'll have a look at all the available free design programs, perhaps I will get lucky.
Thanks again, Rupert

I chose to provide an email because I dont like facebook. Used the download link and got an activation code. However, the program installs in German.

I uninstalled, reinstalled and looked carefully - there are no options for installation language, so apparently the download itself is German from the emailed link is for a German version of the program?

Tried to install on my Win 10 Pro 64-bit (version 20H2) PC. When I hit finish and run the program. I got a popup "Fatal error! Application exit!!". Same when I try to run it from the new button on my Desktop.
Is there an issue with Win 10's built-in protections?
I have Windows Defender and the Free version of Malwarebytes. My pre-install scan of the zip with those two programs showed no problems, so I installed. But can't run.
Ideas?

glnz, Continuing my post above - My older Ashampoo Home Design 3 still starts up but its engine CACAD.exe trips a Win 10 protection message, so I'm not sure whether it still works.

Reply   |   Comment by glnz  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

glnz, Further update for my post above - In my Win 10 notices at bottom right of screen, I saw that my Win 10 had blocked both CAD.exe from this Ashampoo 5 and CACAD.exe from my older Ashampoo 3, I manually permitted them to work, and both progranms open now. Although I have not yet used either of them so I don;t know what will happen if I try to design something, (The resulting building will probably fall down.)
Thanks for your patience.

The email download link isn't working. This is the second time in the last three weeks that I've requested the link via email and it hasn't arrived even after 30 minutes wait time. I've checked and confirmed that it isn't being directed to the spam or trash folders. Would you please check on this.

Might also add that I've tried multiple browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge) with no difference. I note in the comments that others have had mixed experiences; some got the email link and some didn't. Sure hate missing out when great software is available on GAOD.

Good day,
my colleague asks: can it be used for the commercial use (He means in the commercial videos for selling?)
What's kind of the licence of this program?
Thank you, if you'll answer, if - no - I am sorry to bother you.

I have the same question, as Esther's got: what kind of the licence - personal or commercial?

Reply   |   Comment by Junior  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Esther IT co, when you register it, put your company name in it and see if it is accepted. Prolly yes.

Once installed, when applying my email for the request free full version licence, I never receive an email with the information, anyone else having this trouble?.

Reply   |   Comment by Jay  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Jay, i had to try to get the full version, you can type your email then log in to Ashampoo website and than you will get the license key, copy it then activate it, done.

Jay, Nope, and I used a disposable email with no issues whatever plus I made up a name (just initials) and DOB.

All registered and in process of trying it out now.
