The shared account with a 1-year license for DVDFab Ripper works now. Please use the account and password you've received to activate again. Really sorry for the inconvenience.

Downloaded dvdfab_ripper_12052 per the email link and installed. Now DVD Ripper indicates the following.
Status: Activated
Update Expire Time: 2021-11-20
Previously it indicated Trial for status with the GOTD version.

Vaincess, thanks for the update. DVD Ripper now shows
Status: Activated
Update Expire Time: 2021-11-20
Was able to install to additional PC's as well which indicate the same status and update expire time.

Vaincess,

Thanks. While it does show activated now, It still does not appear to be correct. It shows that it expires in 2 weeks, on 11-20-2021. So while it will now work temporarily, it has become only a 2-week license instead of the original 1-year that was indicated?

I never received an "activation" email from this give away....
I wasted a lot of time, making time to recheck my email. I don't use this email on my phone, so I have to get back on my desktop to check it.

Would have liked to tried this, but got the email 17:50 UK time. Tried to install it today at 07:00 and apparently the offer has expired.
So apparently a day is now only 13 hours long.
Pretty disappointed TBH

Hello, I have download the Giveaway of the day version, opened it, installed and ran as instructed.cut/copy/pasted account info per the email provided. The program is listing my install as trial only version. If you could please provide help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been waiting for a give away like this for some time now, so i may get to know the program and perhaps add it to my permanent programs. I have used DVD Fab products in the past and really enjoyed them.

If you Google this program and go to the companies website which contains this product...it's clearly the 'free' version. Straight from the DVDFab website. There is a paid version which is $39.99. IF you get this product, I'd get it directly from DVDFab, but YMMV.

Not only am I having the same problem where it won't authorize the registration, it also appears to have removed my previous GOTD activation of the Video Converter. So now I have neither one activated, and only have the free HD Decrypter. I have tried multiple times to register so at least I have this one, but it just does not work. I tried the Authorize button on the License Info screen as well as directly via the down-arrow next to the t-shirt icon. It just is not working. Very frustrating.

Installed okay and registered -- but then said there was a new version, so I updated..., only to find that it was all a trial version despite saying I had a 1-year license. Tried to rip a DVD and after scanning it for several minutes it said it failed because of read errors, despite it being a brand new disk (Red Dwarf). Then it crashed.

I uninstalled.

Attempting to authorize with the account and password that were mailed to me produces no error, but the DVD Ripper does not register. The only thing that shows Activated is HD Decrypter Free Edition.

Tried with both v12.0.4.8 from the GOTD download and v12.0.5.1 that the email linked to, it makes no difference.
Changing the username or the password results in an error, so it appears that the username and password they are sending out are valid. Nonetheless, the program fails to register.

Running DVDFab as Administrator suppresses the UAC prompt when FabRegOp.exe accesses OP_RegList.dat, but otherwise it makes no difference.

This is on Windows 7 SP1 x64.

When I authorized the program everything I had on DVD Fab changed to full trial and I couldn't get my DVD Copy to work right and lost my account and password that was there for the few programs I had. What do I do to get them back now,

Keith Phelps, Hit the authorize button and enter your original email/password from when you bought the programs. It should revert to what you had originally.

Unable to install. I already own some DVD Fab programs and have tried repeatedly to add this ripper but it will not install/activate other than the trial version. I have followed the directions given by DVD Fab exactly and it will not activate even after I have "unauthorized" the DVD Fab account for my paid versions.

Unlike in 2018, applying and receiving an e-mail for registration proceeded smoothly today -- thanks for that improvement!

After initial installation, I allowed the offered update to v12.0.5.1. Another download then installation followed (the update).

After closing the initial "splash" window displaying the long listing of other products to "authorize"/buy, I didn't pay attention to what was displayed in the main DFDR window before entering the registration info (that had arrived in an e-mail) via the "Common Settings" > "Authorize" menu (little "down arrow" icon in the upper-right corner).

However, even after exiting and relaunching it continues to confusingly display a red shopping cart icon labeled "Buy Now" which makes me question whether it is still a short-term trial vs. the offered 1-year license.

Is it still in trial mode, or is it properly registered? I can't find the word "Trial" anywhere; but (as stated above) didn't notice if it was perhaps originally displayed before entering the "Authorize" licensing info.

Similarly, choosing "About" reveals nothing regarding the status of being registered/licensed, or trial, or duration of trial/license, etc.

I think DVDFab should improve their product with a way to clearly display the status (remaining days and any entered "authorization" info) of a licensed/registered installation or of trial. Usually such info is available in the "About" box.

It'll take a bit to exercise and perhaps report back on how well it functions. Thanks for the offer!

This doesn't seem to have worked. I don't have the time to test this right now, but since this is supposed to be a giveaway for the DVD Ripper portion of the software, I'd expect it to at least indicate on the list of 27 different functions that it is "Activated", but it doesn't. There is only one thing that shows as "Activated" and that is HD Decrypter. I expected this to be since they give it away for free.

Unfortunately, even after registering ("activating") the software, everything is listed as a "Trial" version, even the DVD Ripper portion of the software, which is what is supposed to be free today. It does show that the "Licensee" is the user name I was given in the registration email, so I know I did the process correctly.

I suspect that once I get the time to sit down and attempt to use this, I'm going to be limited to a certain number of rips, or watermarking, or something similar since it still shows that it's a Trial Version.

Disappointed...

Firstly, you almost never see their programs offered as a freebie. I'm guessing that this must be a scaled down extraction from their main, full suite = No Blu Ray ripping, DVD only. (?) (There are some other good alternatives for DVD, from Digiarty / Win-X, in particular, which are offered here from time to time. Less so in the way of alternatives for Blu Ray.) Secondly, some users consider the previous version 11 series to be significantly less buggy than v. 12. However, there are also some user reports that Ver. 11 has been withdrawn and invalidated by Fab, such that installations of it no longer work. So far, I can't really confirm that: the last time I used Ver. 11, not that long ago, it was still working for me. But I guess we'll see. I don't really need this one for DVD. The commercial DVDs that you may still run into are notably less protected than BR discs, and the not-the-most-current software versions for backing them up should still be adequate. I've seen some BR discs that nothing out there will handle well or properly. That said, Fab is one of very few (often effective) solutions that remain, so you can't dismiss it either.

Seems to have installed and registered ok, though program components are indicated as 'Full Trial' and 'Trial'. Immediately offers an update, but it is not clear whether updates are valid under the license.

Reply   |   Comment by Stephen  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

Stephen, I appears you may not have "Authorized" activated the software. Open the program and click on the down arrow next to the "white t-shirt". Then click on the Authorize button and enter the user and password that was sent to you in the email. If you did not get the password, then you need to do that. The directions for obtaining the password is available from your GOTD when you downloaded from them.

AFPhantom2, The down arrow mentioned is at the upper right corner of the FABDVD12 software screen after you open it.

AFPhantom2,

Tried that. Same result, when I enter my user ID and password as in the email Windows asks if the program can alter files but when I go to the program it says 'Full Trial' and 'Trial'.

Disappointing.

AFPhantom2, Thanks for trying to help. I just tried that and it didn't change anything. There are 21 program components listed after entering this and for example the first line is still: (Option) DVD Copy, (Licensee) dvd(middle of licensee redacted for this post)cn, (Update Expire Time) Full Trial, (Status) Trial.

I'm assuming this is a confusing way of saying it is fully functional, and will try actually ripping another day.

After activation per email directions the DVD Ripper program still indicates it's a Trial. Further a dialog window pops up when ripping that indicates 3 disks in 30 day trial period and indicates to remove limitations one needs to purchase the paid version. Also the email instructs users to download DVDFab DVD Ripper from their website which is version 12.0.5.1 while the GOTD version is 12.0.4.8. Which version should people be using?

You have to register, providing an email address, to get a serial number, and once it eventually arrives in your inbox you'll only be able to use that serial number on ONLY one machine.
So, best make a choice of whether you install it on either your desktop or laptop.

A good app but I don't like the lack of choice of where I can only install it to. In this day and age most of us do use both desktops and laptops.

Niall, sometimes you can use the plus feature. If your mail address is a@b.c, you can use the mail addresses a+anything@b.c and so can use your mail address as often as you want. Gmail knows that it should disregard the +anything part, but not all providers do. It is completely legitimate.
