Installation and registration worked fine for me. Is it so hard to change the language from the default Deutsche to English? It was one of the first things that came up during the installation.

I have successfully registered this giveaway without asking for the serial but used this serial which was given in an earlier message:

I simply installed the software and when I first ran it and it had the request serial window show. I shut the program then reopened it and a new window showed offering the option of entering a serial from the clipboard.

As I had earlier copied the above serial number; I pasted it and hey presto; program opened offering full use and without the earlier warning of 7 days left of trial version showing.

I am running Win 10, 64 bit.

Easy, peasy.

To be clear this is a different program than the original CDRwin. The original program was a great little piece of software. I have no idea how this rates. Of course it would help if I could get the registration code and try it.

It puzzles me how someone can rate a program that they can't try due to no serial number being received.

Reply   |   Comment by Brian  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Brian, it is very simple, the whole giveaway is being rated... if one cannot even get a license due to vendors incompetence then they get a negative user vote for making the activation process impossible. Also one can still run the program in free demo mode too so it is not as if one cannot even run the program. I don't see much significant improvements over the original CDRWIN 6.x from when the original author retired from working on it back in 2011

Just adding support for burning CD-R on BD writers which might have worked anyway seeing as the burning API is pretty standard.

Like the majority of responses here, I jumped through all the usual hoops, only to be met with the following error message prior to registration: "Currently no service available or internet connection is broken." This does make one wonder exactly how many of the 'positive' voters were actually able to install this software.

I followed what they need, to check to subscribe to their newsletter, provided them with two different emails waited an email from them for the key for no avail. Then i tap the flag I saw a message saying. " no service avaiable or internet connection" "Zurzeit ist dieser service nitchdug" verfugbar oder es bestehl keine Internetverbindug"

It doesn't work, wonder so many are not getting anything in their email.

Jerry, Uhmm no, After one properly clicks to get a serial number in English, the error message appears in German. The language issue (a non-issue for me) had nothing to do with their problem activating this. Please see the countless other responses with the identical problem..

BTW installs and runs under windows Vista without windows versions issues It could also run under XP SP2 or 3 since the executable is configured to be loadable under NT-4.0 but the setup.exe sets minimum NT version to NT-5.1 which is Windows XP ... sadly the licensing procedure is not functional for the giveaway so far so we are stuck with the free demo version.

John, the german

"Ihre Anfrage konnte nicht bearbeitet werden.

translates into

"Your request could not be processed.
Currently no serial numbers can be delivered. Please try again later."

So the giveaway process is not currently working as promissed in the readme.txt file.

Will it allow us to upload the track listing album name artist names and other meta data for the created CD to online databases? So when the CD in inserted into another internet connected machine it can retrieve the full information for the disc and not just be limited to the basic CDTEXT data that only has album name and track name and artist for each which is fine for a car CD player but insufficient for a computers media player.

Program installed correctly, however when I try to enter the serial number it will not take it? I received the serial number via email, start the program, the registration pop up opens, I click on enter serial, I insert the serial number form clipboard, and then hit ok, but nothing happens and I am left with the pop window sitting there not accepting the valid serial number??

Please advise as to how to fix this issue. Thank you.

Soft was good on Win9x (original CDRWin) because contained driver that was not build-in in OS.

On NT platform (Win2k/XP/etc) it's just another interface-dummy. Millions of them (and free ones to)

Vladson, looks like this company bought CDRWIN of the original developers https://web.archive.org/web/20110904061937fw_/http://www.goldenhawk.com:80/cdrwin.htm

and not done anything inovative with it.

The CDRWin name has been around since x486 days, a burning software whose development was actually abandoned by author Jeff Arnold a decade and more ago. German software publisher Engelmann revived it, yet now appears to have likewise given up on it, seeing as how CDRWin is nowhere to be found in its current inventory:

https://engelmann.com/en/shop/

The version 10 link on this promotional page nevertheless connects to Engelmann's $25 purchase page, though mysteriously, it's also available from Engelmann for $8 via this Softpedia link:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/Data-CD-DVD-Burning/CDRWIN.shtml

so if you like today's GOTD, the purchase price (or re-install price) isn't high.

That said, Engelmann continues to be inexplicably coy about version details, because as with the last time this was promoted on GOTD -- back in April, 2014 -- specifics are non-existent. Assuming that the latest version is 10.0.14.106, then the Softpedia link is good value.

I've used various iterations of CDRWin over the years and found it to be a fairly satisfactory performer. In my experience it was, however, increasingly out-matched in terms of speed and stability by both the free and paid-for versions of Ashampoo's Burning Studio, this latter the subject of ongoing development whereas CDRWin 's seems now to have stopped or been abandoned.

"out-matched in terms of speed and stability by both the free and paid-for versions of Ashampoo's Burning Studio"

Reply   |   Comment by Phillip  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

MikeR, best of all, this actually is freeware ... but just for German users. Couldn't find it in German shop either, but on start page where they offer different products (?!? some store items aren't even promoted there) there was a link to free software where you will find cdrwin10. Same link/list on English web site has the same apps except this one.
German free version and gaotd installer are of the same size and version.
Well done - even if you follow the link to vendor above it just takes you to the English page without the option of switching language easily ...

smurf: well spotted! The fact that it's now being given away indicates that Engelmann no longer have any interest in its further development.

If you are using two email addresses from the same email provider, try using a different email provider.

Reply   |   Comment by consuella  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

consuella, If you to jump through so many hoops to get a software key, where some say that the key they received did not work, then this software give away should be given a pass (meaning don't even bother trying to install it). Advice that would be helpful is to check your spam box to see if your key went there. If you are a Gmail user, then you can check your promotions box or updates box. There should be no need to create a different email on a different site. Doing so is really not worth the effort considering that there are no specifics about what this version contains, what updates there may be from a previous version, and the issue with the serial keys received that did not work.
