Installed this on Windows 8.1 (with Admin rights) and it installed itself in "AppData" directory rather than Program Files.
OK, no problem. I can still run it but it says 30 days trial.
Tried with regular user account, says 30 days trial. Tried with Admin account, says 30 days trial.
If you can't get the installation & activation process to work for the users, don't expect them to buy your software.

Good to have these types of program but I wish I could install it on a diffierent drive other than the C drive.

Windows 10 already has something similar to this program built in. The Windows 10 offering does have a limited feature set however. For those that are looking for something more than what Windows 10 offers, or if you are looking for something for a different version of Windows, there is a great little program that has been out for years. It has numerous customization options, and best of all, it won't cost you a penny... It's called "f.lux" and it's FREE.

I disabled the built in filter on Win10; it seemed to me that my eyestrain was worse at night when that kicked in and I had trouble reading black (dark grey) text on a white (pinkish-white) background.
How is this software better?

I've been trying this for a couple of weeks having gotten a download offering from another site and liking it. The presets are very convenient (Office, Game, Movie, Night, Reading, etc.) and each of those are further customizable should one want to modify it. If you want to turn it off you can simply set it to "Normal" or right click and "exit" on the program icon to shut down completely.

Some mentioned a similar ability in Win10 however, that is one setting withthe only customization being strength, not the many choices this offers. Plus, with the Win10 option you either have to set a timer or allow location services, I never would, for a "sunset to sunrise" setting as they view it as just a nighttime thing. Sure one can go into Windows settings and turn it one and off at will but still it offers nothing compared to what this specialized software, or other such software I have tried, offers.

For me, while some may think the light is no issue, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Nothing magically happens in the evening that suddenly makes the light an issue, other than possible impacting your sleep, but protecting one's eye's should always be a concern whenever one is staring at a screen. I appreciate being able to filter the screen's light easily whenever I am using the computer be that morning, noon, or evening and this enables one to do that in a very quick and simple way.

Thank you to the SAU Tech and GOTD teams.
I hope everyone is healthy and staying safe!

jboy, re "rather be safe than sorry" there is no physical damage caused by visble blue light, claims of otherwise are at best pseudo-science or more likely not even pseudo-science just out and out snake oil salesmanship. It all comes down to whether you can see the screen better with any particular colours filtered or not or at a particular screen brightness. For me it makes no difference if lighting is high in blue part of the spectrum or not on my sleeping but dimness of a screen certainly causes eyestrain and fatigue having to put more effort into reading the content than normal decent brightness of display. Find what works best for you and stick with that but don't assume what works for you is universally best for everyone else. I prefer cold-white 6500K colour temperature lighting and find 2600 to 3600 room lighting to be depressing. But that's just me.

Now UVA and UVB components are best avoided as they are proven scientifically to be very harmful to eyes as well as skin when in high levels and thankfully most modern lighting sources and screens do not produce UVA and UVB light. So as far as the vast majority of people are concerned you'll be safe with or without this software or anything similar or the night time mode built into WIndows 10 that optionally provides the same facility.

jboy, Thank you for your affirmation of our work. We want everyone to be healthy, so we created CareUEyes. It is undeniable that it has some shortcomings, but we are still constantly improving

Can CareUEyes be installed and run as/for an ordinary windows 7 user?
Currently it is installing and running as administrator only (otherwise no free license).

Tried rebooting, and also installing from a different location.
Not working for me.

It is more annoying when the screen is dimmed and reddish than to leave it alone. For couple of hours at night to limit the blue light makes no sense. Win 10 can do that if you are into it and no need for separate software to run 24/7 in the background and occupy memory, just for couple of hours a day dimming the blue light. We stare 10 hours a day in a blue screen, no problem. What if you are watching a high definition movie on the screen that is dimmed, you will miss 50% of the action in the background, everything turns into a blur.

Mike, In addition to the effect of light on the eyes, regular rest can also help us relieve eye fatigue

Great tiny Tool (1MB .exe, 5MB Memory Footprint).

I have it running for 2 Years now (GotD 2018-07-18).
Major Improvement with this Version.
The Sunrise/Sunset-Feature in Custom Mode works just fine.

The Program Folder can be moved to a different Location which makes CareUEyes 'portable', although this Version insists on saving the Settings to

Thank you GotD and SAU Technology

In Window 10, a CareUEyes is not required. In settings "night lamp" can be switched on and is currently switched off.

It is not lifetime license. The expiration date is 2020-07-20.

Meta discussion:

In response to [ giveaways.freebies ], who noted CareUEyes is a 1-year license,

On the one hand, I understand licenses elsewhere, as my driver's license and car registration expire periodically.

My car itself does not expire, though without my license and my car's registration, there's not much I can do with my car, so the analogy falls apart at some point.

I'd be pissed if my car itself expired regardless of my license ( my license, not the car's license ) or my car's registration ( registration to use in public, not registration to exist or use in private or own it or sell it ) - for example, if I had property where I use my car without ever requiring a public license and registration, I'd be pissed if my car arbitrarily expired and I could not drive around my own property any longer.

No analogy is perfect, but this tells me that software licenses come in many forms, and the word "license" is a meaningless term on it's own, especially when vendors throw "trial" into the mix.

"Trial" sometimes means full function, sometimes limited function, almost always limited time.

Since this is a limited-time license, it's equal to a -l-o-n-g- trial.

We GOTD users tend to resent long trials when they appear here merely for profit, as if the vendor is harvesting GOTD users, and sees no other value in GOTD users but potential sales, ignoring the marketing value of goodwill, the value of user feedback, the value of problem identification and resolution, so we feel targeted and used, as we resent that.

We understand
- charging for support,
- charging for updates if needed,
- charging for upgrades if desired.

I will never understand a giveaway that expires, that stops working arbitrarily at a certain time ... because
- at least it creates a feeling of "wasted my time",
- at most it creates a desire to look for alternatives.

Marketing is a challenge; Bill Gates himself was initially upset that programmers freely traded paper-tape programs ( -l-o-n-g- time ago ), telling them to always sell licenses, then Bill Gates himself "gave away" Microsoft Word with every Windows computer, and thereby bankrupted the competition ( Microsoft is a convicted felon of monopoly practices, by the way, for it's attempts to also rig the browser market ).

I have no resolution to the "licensing expiration" problem of what a license means on a giveaway site, other than to remind vendors that expiring licenses are a universal challenge averse to goodwill.

Product review-ish:

That said, it may relate to the product development, or lack of development, itself.

CareUEyes is still in v1, and seems immature regarding features and benefits, unaware of the actual sunrise and sunset and twilight - and moonrise and moonset - where I live, unaware of my timezone, unaware of the many features and benefits offered by the competition.

I'd give full feedback if CareUEyes traded a full giveaway.

FYI, fellow GOTD users,
- I like the feature of making many white backgrounds automatically green,
- I so not like that the green background is random and arbitrary, not on all background, not controllable,
- I'd prefer to have control of the shades of green background, and or any foreground-versus background color,
- I do not like toggling the day and night settings on one set of controls, I'd prefer them to be side by side and clearly identified, and perhaps presented as a single dot on an xy axis instead of two unrelated sliders, I just realized one set of controls toggles between each setting, day or night, by clicking the little circled-arrow on the right that I now see is a sunup/sundown symbol ( not sunrise/sunset, there's a difference not explored by this program ), the description in the title bar SOMETIMES shows what "mode" I or CareUEyes are in, sometimes not, all of this is ambiguous and arbitrary,
- I like the idea of setting the display to an editing mode - invert foreground/background - to possibly eliminate blue flicker headache, but there are no adjustments or indicators,
- I do not like CareUEyes dependence on Aero theme for anything ( so I have no idea what "reading" mode is - it is amberscale/grayscale ? ),
- I like that it seems to not be a "heavy" or a busy program in memory, and I have not experienced system lockups or crashes because or CareUEyes,
- bottom line, aside from the automatic green-replacement-for-white background sometimes in some places, and perhaps the ability to adjust screen color and brightness on demand, CareUEyes has been a passive, non-intrusive, non-engaging program in the background, so to speak, for me.

- - - - - - - - - -

But my concerns here are more for the GOTD community, so I'll suggest alternatives that I have explored ( which today's vendor can check out also, and learn from ):

[ iristech. co ] blue light filter and eye protection to prevent eye strain, optimize screen pulsations by controlling the brightness without PWM pulse-width modulation, reduce eye pain by matching screen brightness to the surrounding light, improve sleep by gradually regulating blue light day and night cycles.

Other folks suggest:
- f.lux
- iBrightmess tray
- ClickMonitorDDC
- Screen bright
- Desktop Lighter
- Dimmer
- Brightness Controller
- Gamma Panel

See also browser extensions:
- Color Enhancer for Chrome ( web search and explore, I love this )
- Eye Protector for Chrome ( also tries to make backgrounds green )
- Advanced Font Settings for Chrome ( makes things easy to read by my own standards )

- - - - - - - - - -

So, c'mon, CareUEyes,
1 - push development beyond v1
2 - reconsider ... trial ... versus giveaway

Thanks for exploring and sharing, folks - GOTD is a treasure.
