i have to say its a confusing install. download a zip file which is a read me file with a link to the download site. Then you get a serial # after you purchase the $0 amount and get yet another download link and after you install it... a window has 3 options. A pro trial a paid version and a free version.... not sure i just clicked the free version and its a knocked down version of the pro .... minus features that make it valuable to run or not i don't know yet. Did not need the serial. This one has to take the BEST AWARD for confusing install i have encounter in a long time. Probably will uninstall it after a few days if i don't see any need for it.

Good utility... except I always run into niggling little issues with it.
So I rely instead on the free ImgBurn.

FYI, to the software developers:

Earlier version (10.4) had a setting (main window menu) for checking for updates; this GOTD version does not (not even greyed-out). This v11 has "Prevent entering sleep mode during burning".

These changes are not reflected in the BurnAware 11 Help pages for the topic "Common Settings". There may be other inconsistencies -- I was only searching for the term "update" to see if there was a setting to disable automatic updates (apparently not?).

Also the main program seems to be high DPI aware (3840 x 2160); whereas the Help window is not fully compatible (its toolbar menu icons appear tiny).

Otherwise, thank you very much for today's great offer!

I mentioned before and I will say it again.The software can not be installed.I don't even get to see the installation screen. Not this one, not the previous one and not from the past weekend.Until last week everything was working perfectly ; same settings, same antivirus same Windows 10 64b .The only advice so far is to "disable antivirus", and so far doesn't work.One PC with Windows 10 Pro and one with Windows 7 Pro.One has Norton and one has Windows defender.Disabled or enabled doesn't make any difference.It seams that I'm not the only one with the same problem and I wish with all do respect for GOTD, to look a little deeper into this issue but I doubt that from my past experiences .I am not a novice in the computer field and I have similar programs or better but I like to play and experience with some new or different ones.Those so called freebies work for me in this aspect, but all this "games"
download,install,Themida and all the hops- are no more fun or annoying but just a big hassle.I believe that Themida is the culprit here, more then just disable the antivirus. but is just my humble opinion.I didn't expect that the problem to be solved overnight (I ment years), but I was hoping that somebody will let us know and acknowledge that is a problem. I apologize for any grammar mistakes english being my second language but I hope that I get my point across. Have a great day.

cos,

Something like a recent Windows update may have changed your installation experience even if your antivirus or other software has apparently not changed. (With Windows things seem to always be in a state of flux!)

Try three things to see if they help (as presented on my USA-English Windows installation -- may be presented differently in your language?). Hopefully these 3 simple steps will make your GOTD installations work successfully/reliably again:


1) After downloading, right-click on the saved file (whatever type it is, ZIP, EXE, etc.) and select Properties.

In the Properties window that appears, on the General tab, at the bottom below "Attributes" you frequently will also see the item "Security". For files I download from this website it is almost always present.

If you do see it there it will say "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer."

Simply click to place a checkmark in the box "Unblock", then click the Apply button -- you will see that the warning text will disappear -- then the OK button. (Next time you can simply click the OK button if you prefer.)


2) For a more reliable installation experience, unpack/copy all the installer and Readme.txt files (from within the usual downloaded ZIP file) into an empty folder at the root of your C: drive, say, a newly created folder named "C:\INSTALL" or "C:\GOTD" or "C:\TEMP" -- your choice. (This is good practice for installing any software application.)


3) I have had consistent success with these GOTD software titles by running/launching the installer file (typically Setup.exe) as an "Administrator" which temporarily lowers protections.

To do so, right-click on the installer file, then select "Run as adminstrator". Proceed with the installation.


I will caution that you should carefully scan any other downloaded software (coming from sources other than the carefully pre-screened GOTD offers) with your antivirus tools and/or upload to a service like VirusTotal.com to ensure there is no malware/spyware/worm/"bot"/adware/etc. payload before installing when using these steps. To install software containing malware using the "Run as administrator" permission could really wreck your machine and/or result in identity or financial theft!

Hope this helps!

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

cos,

I forgot to add that after the installation is complete, there is often a checkbox (pre-checked) with the offer to go ahead and "launch" the software application.

Although this is intended as a convenience, I usually UN-check the box before proceeding for the following reason:

If the above 3rd step was followed to install the new software (and you then chose the "convenience" launch) you would continue to be temporarily running as an "Administrator" when the new application appeared on screen.

Any registration info you then enter would be tied to the temporarily-enabled "Adminstrator" account.

Later, when you next re-launch the application as an ordinary user you may discover that it is no longer registered, and it may be too late to try and register again under the GOTD registration/activation rules! I believe this may be source of some posted complaints.


I prefer to finish the installation (including the typical return to the GOTD website for the "thank you", "please share" window, or to the developer's website for a post-install discount-buy offer, etc.) without launching the new software.

Then, when the installer (and any other stuff it may have launched in turn) has been exited (which ends the temporary "Adminstrator" status), I launch the new software as an ordinary user from any of its proper icons in the traditional way: in the Start menu, QuickLaunch icon or from the desktop icon, etc. I then register/activate and have had no problems afterwards.


Oh, and be sure to look for and disable any automatic update settings that would result in later deactivation/unregistering actions. We don't like discovering that has happened, do we?

Good luck!

Some programmes don't call home. Disconnect the internet while unprotected. If it does call home to check if still available close the programme, reconnect the internet, wait for it to restart and then go back to plan a. click on setup.exe. It would be nice if internet needed/not needed was added as well as the other requests.

BurnAware is a good burning app, but I wish they'd add [suggest that they add] dual layer video DVD capability. [For dual layer video DVDs you set the break point where the 2nd layer starts.] Until they add that, if they do, have to continue using the free ImgBurn.

Every day GAOTD list for each giveaway System Requirements, Price, Publisher, File size, etc.
Can they not be persuaded to add two items to this every time: the licence period, and a reminder to temporarily disconnect anti-virus and anti-malware when applicable?
This would avoid many adverse comments and save us the bother of reading them and being put off by them. This time for instance all the comments are good except those which would not come if GAOTD did this. Perhaps commentators could pressure this. I hope this is not moderated out.

Reply   |   Comment by Laxative  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+25)

Laxative, The newer readme's now contain an AV warning in case a wrapper is used by Giveawayoftheday. If the licence is not "lifelong", you will see a line in bold at the end of the description at the top of this page.

Some people lose their licence because they try to update. In many cases the application looks for an update by default and you have to switch that off manually. Sometimes that means editing your registry. Many users do not know how to do that, or not bother to check changes in the registry made during installation. There are many free registry trackers available to check for registry changes during installatuion or while running an application. Personally I use Cameyo for that.

There is one supplier that uses the same registry key in all its applications. In that case installing a giveaway might result in losing the registration of their older giveaways, because during installation first removes that registry key, and then replaces it with the registration details of the new giveaway. Again, Cameyo is a good antidote. Cameyo is run best on a clean virtual machine.

Have used the free and premium and pro editions for years. I have had less that stellar luck often burning an audio CD, but the data burning capability is up there with the best as far as stability. Many features, excellent software with a few more perks than the free edition. Note that unless you want to burn ISO files to multiple drives at once or use in a commercial setting, the premium edition has all the functions of the professional version. Downloaded and installed here without a problem.

One unknown is how long the installer is good for. I had the 10.1 pro version that still installs, and the 10.4 version that expired after a couple days. My old premium giveaway still installs, but best to get it now and put on the computers you want to install it to. You will know in a few days or weeks if you can use it for reinstall.

This is excellent, simple-to-use burning software. I have been using it exclusively since an earlier GOTD (version 7) and it has never failed me. Downloaded and installed this version (11) without the need to uninstall the old version, so installation couldn't be made any simpler. This is great software for audio or video burning, and then some. Highly recommended! Thank you to BurnAware and to GOTD.

After disabling my firewall and anti virus, I get "IPersistFile::Save failed, code 0x80070002. The system cannot find the file specified." The install proceeded, but then I found that this application won't convert MP4 files to the format needed to burn a DVD.

Grump Pah, yep that is because it cannot author DVD-video discs but only burn pre-authored DVD-Video folders files... It cannot author any disc type, just burn data files to discs.

In case anyone is interested the version history for this product is available here: http://www.burnaware.com/version-history.html

I have version 10.4 from a previous giveaway, still unused for the reasons given elsewhere, and I do note that EVERY release in the history fixes bugs... It is not clear if they are old bugs or new bugs introduced by sloppy coding of new features introduced in a previous release... but for me there are too many ongoing bugs to trust the quality control and private alpha/beta testing prior to public releases of this product.

Once downloaded, had to temporarily uninstall avast in order to get Burn Aware to install properly. Right click on Avast in tool bar, and click on Avast Shields Control, disable for 10 minutes & then immediately go to the download and click on Setup.exe to install Burnaware. I've used BurnAware Free in the past, so this does similar things. Would recommend.

I have several methods to burn pre-existing data to optical media, including windows itself, so don't need yet another... I just wish this would also author specific data constructs used by the various types of optical storage media, like DVD-Video authouring and CDG Authoring or Video-CD authoring or Blu-Ray Authoring AND burning ALL in the same package... that would make it useful to me.

TK,

Nero. Don't *think* it will do CDG, but it will encode & burn DVD & Blu-ray video discs complete with menus, though you can't create those menus from scratch, & it has good encoders that are pretty fast compared to alternatives. Nero can also do your VCDs & SVCDs, though can't say more than I just made sure the feature was still there in the 2017 version. You can find Nero Platinum 2018 for around $30 on sale [I've seen it several times for that price at Fry's] and older versions are of course cheaper when/if you find them -- as Ahead has been cutting Nero's features, an older version *might* give you more bang for the buck.

mike, I have other programs to author/create the special purpose discs like DVD-Video, CDG Blu-ray and video-cds but they tend to be able to burn the discs by themselves so no need for a collection of burning wizards/utilities like this. There was a similar program given away years ago to this called StarBurn that had exactly the same weakness. I think it's still installed here but never used as it's pointless! Windows does most of what it does.

I was curious if Malware fighter with the bit defender engine would cause a conflict so I did not bother to disable it. I ran the installer exe on windows home premium 64 bit and it installed without any problems at all - I checked to make sure that it was indeed registered and it was. The interface is sleek and strait forward the program looks to have all the bells and whistles you would want in a burner.
Thanks.

Since I don't use anti-virus that doesn't allow whitelisting I had to do almost nothing to install this upgrade. I wish all GOTD offerings used this simple method of registration. Installed over the previous version. I've used BurnAware for virtually all ISO and burning for years. I also have Ashampoo but rarely fool with trying to drill through those snazzy menus for a simple job. This current version of BurnAware has a much cleaner interface in that the main choices are no longer nested. You open it up, choose your job and get on with it.

drvajra,
The setup.gcd is not designed to run directly by you. Setup. exe is supposed to call it. So if you are getting the response when you click on the setup. exe file, then your download is corrupted. Please delete the old download, download again from GAOTD,
and run the setup. exe file again.

Bachupan , thank you so much.

I followed exactly what you said. D/loaded the zip file again and tried. When I clicked on the .exe file, I get a message "successfully activated". This is strange - usually, setup.exe would install the program, and then we would click on the gcd file to activate.

I then d/loaded the file from the vendor's website and installed it. Then I clicked the .exe file, it repeated the same message.

When I click on the .gcd file, it keeps asking 'how to open it' and gives a list of programs to choose.
None works.
Thank you in advance.

drvajra, if you happen to read this -- do not ever do anything with the .gcd file (do *not* click on it)! It is there only for GotD's purpose, as is noted in the Readme file.

After you download the .zip file from GotD into its own (user created) folder, unzip it. Then, always read the 'Readme' first -- before you do anything else. Usually (again, it will say in the 'Readme') you then double-click on the .exe file to install. Or, if you're the Admin, right-click on the .exe file to install. Refer to the 'Readme' for any other instructions.

It's probably too late for this giveaway, but hopefully you'll know what to do the next time.

@ChrisH - VirusTotal does show one positive from one of the usual outliers, Cylance. 59 others found no safety risk, nor did my local full time scanning including 3 anti-malware hunters & an anti-rootkit. A separate Malwarebytes scan also passed it.

Cylance has particular issues with certain types of installers and because no infective agent was specified, I'll assume that was what it was. It's pretty common from Cylance and one other.

I did lift only Avast for installation & it went smoothly - I haven't gotten farther than that yet so I cannot report on the program itself.

I've noticed that any positive comments immediately get a negative mark!
C'mon guys - we're not all croneys of the software retailers.

At the risk of being crucified, can I dare to say that this installed without any problems? Or is that too much of an endorsement? Seemed to work okay with a simple video DVD burn. Offers more burning speeds than Ashampoo.

(BTW I normally post warnings - dare I mention SoftOrbits? - and occasionally complaints, especially when an "offer" turns out to be just a "prize draw"! But if something is good, I'll say so. Sorry if that offends anyone)

Friedhaggis, not all positive comments get a negative.

Look again, the ones that get a negative simply say things like, "it's good". That does not help a reader decide if it is worth trying. In contrast, positive comments that add info, like "I used it for years" or "no problems installing over a previous version" help in the decision.

For example, I have version 10.1 installed, so whether a new installation will play nice (or if I have to go through the trouble of uninstalling the previous version) play a role in my decision. I don't usually bother to add a negative but I think others are rating the comment on the effort and how useful the comments are

alordofchaos, - reasonable point, I grant you. But when someone says that installation proceded without problems, or that switching off Avast helps, I'd count that as a useful comment; especially if I was having grief installing. I'm not just referring to today's offering.

Even "it's good" tells you something, but not much I agree! Come back Giovanni & Ashram with your indepth analysis and free alternatives!

Friedhaggis, if you counted it as useful then you vote it was useful, but please allow those who didn't find it useful to vote too otherwise the "useful" votes are meaningless!
Its called democracy... if you censor or make socially or legally unaccapteble to not give an affirmative vote to what's on offer then you practically have a dictatorship a place where people have to self censor their opinions and always aprove or be silent! A bit like Russia where allegations of governmental corruption are criminalised! Or China where any discontent is greeted with arrests, or DPRK where any non conformance is met with arrest and imprisonment.

Friedhaggis, I wouldn't put too much faith in whether a comment is marked up or down, there are a few posters who will always have their own ideas. I tend to read the comments posted by people who have taken the time to test the software properly and make constructive comments about the positive and negative aspects of it. I only post a comment when I feel I have something to offer, but the problem is that the moderator decides there is something about my comment that they don't like and it never gets posted. The only real way to decide is to try it out for yourself and post your own findings, after all the only thing you have to lose is a bit of time.

I don't recall if Burnaware has this issue, but with some software, it installs but does not add things like desktop or Start Menu shortcuts. Look in c:/program files (x86) for the Burn Aware Premium folder and find Burnaware.exe. If it is there, right-click and choose options from the menu (you can pin to start menu, send shortcut to desktop, etc.

Just installed with no issue over previous version. It does by default install a desktop icon and quick launch shortcut. Vangelis, I would still check the folder mentioned above to see if it installed, and if you find it, double click Burnaware.exe to see if it will run. If not, I would try reinstalling.

Finally i managed to install it by disabling my antivirus (avast) for a while. Thank you for your answers!

Get constantly the information: The setup files are corrupted - please obtain a new copy of the program.

What can I do about that?

Mogens, read the readme file. It shows how to handle and shut off certain anti-virus software. The files are NOT corrupted

I have used the prior version several times. It works very well and is relatively easy to use. I've recommended it to several clients.

I had to disable AVAST shields before downloading to install successfully. I noticed there was a slight difference in d/l size befoe/after disabling the shields.

Installed over previous old BurnAware Premium v10.4 - Giveaway of the day, it is now updated to v11.0 and working like a charm! Thanks so much ;-)

joe,
If you click on the link to their home page, there is a "what's new" blue button on the page. Click that, and you will see release notes. One more click on the version history, and you will see the change by each release. To save you a bit of trouble, this is a direct link:
http://www.burnaware.com/version-history.html

(note that in the past, some folks have had issues with GAotD buggering up the URLs - included directions on how to get there if the link is buggered)

I have 10.1 installed, and there are enough new features and bug fixes that I will install this version.

Why the licence of giveaway (setup.gcd) doesn't work with the original setup.exe of the BurnAware Premium 11.0.?!
I'd prefer to setup the original version of BurnAware as the setup of the Giveaway is hot - checked in a virustotal.

ChrisH,
Won't work with original setup, otherwise you would be able to install on some other day. The reason your virus warning is triggered is because of the GAotD install wrapper. If you search previous giveaway comments, you'll see this is a known issue but no one has gotten a virus from installing - it is safe.

I could not get it to install, I followed all the steps, and all it told me in the end, was that it was activated.
Shame really, I would have liked this software.

Absolutely no problems installing, usage so far is superior to most similar software I have. Thank you for this opportunity today,
