Dear GOTD users,
please note that you still can finish the started downloads and activate your build today!!!

We are working on the possibility to have the program rerun but we'll need some time to make sure we won't have the same situation like yesterday.

Also, I would like to note that the project has some rules of the operating and we make agreements with the developer, so we can't change the way of registration or distribution in the middle of the campaign!

Sorry for the inconvenience and we'll do our best to fix the situation.
Sincerely,
GOTD team!

Helen, Thank you, I'm at 1.96 Gb now after almost 24h, so will likely have done downloading it in a few hours at that pace.

I have a suggestion that you can put to the developers of such large setup files :

Why do they not also provide it in the form of a torrent -- there are such as large number of downloads, if everyone used uTorrent etc and seeded for the 24 hours duration, I have no doubt everyone will be able to download this size file between 30 minutes to 3 hours, even on the slower speed ADSL lines.

Thank you for your friendly service as always !

All that is shown is the trial version. How do you register it for a valid license/code?

Tried the download of trial from Ashamppo site. After a 30 minute DL time it failed again.. Gotta be a better solution

Louis, how did you get to 1.96Gb the download is only 1.36Gb.... that's 600Mb more than completed!

Can you give me a reply for registering or any possibly upcoming GAOTD offers..VEry disappointed in the way this was handled.

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

TK, Quite right, I made a typo -- I meant to type that I managed to download 1.26 GB (not 1.96 which I typed by mistake) after about 24 h as mentioned (1,267,267 KB to be precise), before summarily cut off by a 'server failed' message, and refusal to accept the resume download.....

I hoped that Ashampoo will activate the full trial copy that I did manage to download directly from their website though -- I asked that they send me a serial key earlier, but received no response.

I started to download the huge file with approximately 28 minutes until the deal expired.

I had downloaded 1.28GB (of the expected 1.37GB file) and then the download stalled and that was as far as it got it NEVER resumed downloading.

As a PAiD owner of about 6 different Ashampoo products, I'm VERY VERY Disappointed with the way this was organised. Anyone with a slow connection has a right to be extremely upset

Well, so much for that. After a 4 hour download, the file wouldn't open. It said it was corrupted. I think thy should try this again with a file that you can actually download. I'm very disappointed I couldn't get this. :(

I also tried to download. After 8+ hours, the download was terminated. There is a zip file, but only 500 MB. I tried to run the file, but wouldn't allow, saying file was corrupted. It appears the complete file didn't download. How can I finish downloading, if the offer is still active? I can't see a place to finish download from GOTD site. Can I download from Ashampoo and then use the activation code from GOTD?

Downloaded after three attempts, look a long time to do so, after that it installed for a while and when it shut shut down to restart it took all night. had to force stop the startup. Now its asking for a key which I don't have. hope Ashampoo sends one.

I patiently waited the many hours for the file to download, went to the website to get my registration key, logged in, and the site failed to give me the registration -- repeatedly. It acknowledged my sign-in, I could see my other Ashampoo registration codes, it shows me logged in, but on *Step 2* Show License Key -- it doesn't. I get a green check on Step 1 -- no green check on Step 2. Was all this time wasted?????

Well, I initially started with the download this morning and it stated 6 - 7 hours to download. I had stuff to do so I just let it download. Came back about five hours later and it was finished. Went to the setup file and was informed that the download corrupted and was told I needed to attempt to download again. So I did attempt to do so, this time I saw that it would take 11 - 12 hours to download. At this time I still have four hours to finish the download and it is almost 3 am Central time in the USA. So, even if this DOES happen to complete the download, will I be able to use it??????? Or is all this just a complete wast of time?

Seems like lots of community members have been having trouble with this one. With a broadband speed of 100MB I should have been able to download this in a matter of seconds but it said over 10 hours last night. I left my computer on all night in the hope it would download in time, but this morning it had hardly moved. Don't know what could have strangled the download speeds so badly. Never had that problem ever since I discovered the giveaway project back in early November 2006

Reply   |   Comment by Whiterabbit-uk  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Whiterabbit-uk,

Just realized why the download speed is so slow. The download files are 1.4GB in size. With literally thousands of community members downloading at any one time due to the size of the download, a bottleneck has been created at the download servers. The giveaway project only has so much bandwidth. The more community members downloading at the same time, the slower their download speed becomes due to the bandwidth restrictions.

Reply   |   Comment by Whiterabbit-uk  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Whiterabbit-uk,
Maybe they should work with a few downloaders.
No more than 100 at the same time.
I could provide the ZIP like in the old days, but that is not permitted by GOTD.
It took me just 30 minutes to get the file.
And the speed is 1,3Mb/s.

I've downloaded it. Took about 14 hours. Ran the install and now have the license key window up. Clicked on Get free activation key button, gotten browser tab opened asking for email and click on Request full version key button. It says it sent an email, but not receiving email with activation link. Tried it four times. Nothing in inbox, nothing in spam folder, nothing. Only 2 hours left for this GAOTD offer. Hope I can get it registered by then.

A Barnard,
Took 14 hours to download, but I got a good zipp file that was able to unzip. However, when I run the setup, it asks language (English) and to accept conditions, then get window to get free activation key. But it never emails me the activation link, even though it says it did. Oh, well. Hope this built in license key thing still works after the download deadline.

It took over 16 hours to download, but it installed and activated very easily on Windows 10. It took so long to download that I was not able to evaluate it very long, but what I was able to check out seems to be a very good program. I will continue to evaluate it, but the giveaway will expire before I can comment again. So far it seems to be a keeper.

Long time GAotD user here. I've tried Ashampoo Home Designer 1.0 before and thought it was great.
Would like to try todays version but yep, like everyone else, the download speed available is too slow. Even with my 150mbps cable internet the download will take 5.5 hours. (Average 70kbps approx.)
Lets all hope this is offered again at GAotD because todays giveaway is worth it!

This is a test of ones patiences. 15 hours to download and install. I started this a couple of hours after it was offer. Don't know what the others that started downloading later than that are going to do. The 24 hours are closing fast. Hope they can still install past the end of the day.

Like others, download is taking forever despite good speed (cord cutter, whole house is networked so speed fluctuates a bit); avoiding streaming isn't speeding this up any & it likely won't be done until hours after expiration. Will this be extended due to this problem?

My download went for 7 hours and said I had 45 minutes left. Then it jumped to wanting to download 9 more hours. I stopped the download and now want to delete the files it downloaded but can't find them under control panel. Should I be looking for some other file than Ashampoo Home Designer??

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

Pam,
Control Panel?? Nah...
Do a search on your computer for a zip file called AshampooHomeDesignerPro3-fgh164.zip
That's what you want to delete. If you can't delete it, reboot computer then you should be able to.

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

Pam, what the partly downloaded file is called and where it resides depends upon what program you used to attempt the download and how that program deals with file downloads. No one can answer your question with certainty unless you provide far more information!

You really need to extend the time to install this software. I started downloading around 11AM ET and download status bar says I've only gotten 55% in. Most of the time it's reporting download speeds 20-50KB/s with occasional spurts up to 100 KB/s. My computer is not running slow, and all other internet sites are working as normal on my FiOS connection, so the problem is on the server's end. As of right now it's going to be close as to whether the download will be compete before the offer expires.

What's really sad is that giveaway is hosting this download for which they don't have the bandwidth to handle large numbers of people downloading a file that's over 1 gigabyte. It's too bad Ashampoo dot com can't host this giveaway, Ashampoo Home Designer Pro 3 (GOTD).
What I did do is copy and paste the direct link to this offer into a download manager like IDM. Of course, there are free alternatives too. I have Cox high speed internet and I'm getting about 2 hours to download this 1.366 GB file. So I feel for those that not so fast ISP'ers.

I'm so disappointed. We lost power while I was at work today so no cable (my router doesn't have battery backup). My download failed. I've restarted the dl but looks like a minimum of 16 - 19 hours so I'm out of luck. It won't finish before the giveaway is over.

I don't understand this.
