Fixed keys were supposed to be released within a week. This is nothing short of a debacle. C'mon Mark from EaseUS!

Has there been any resolution to the problems with the activation of this GOTD software for all the people who downloaded the files on December 5, but were never able to get the program activated? Thanks - Jerry

In the same boat as many. As EaseUS and many others do it uninstalled older version before trying to install the current offer. Now I'm left with no version of PC Trans.
Older version would have been better than no version.

Like many, I did not get my copy activated on Dec 5 due to server down from the link provided by Easeus. I installed the app in 2 computers and now I wonder if someone from Easeus will help us get our copies activated. This looks like a good software though.

By the way, I am surprised nobody mentioned it, but as far as I am aware, LAPLINK have a programme to do what this programme is supposed to do for $45 x 2 (presumably) -- and theirs costs $95, if I recall correctly.

So if you have this one from GOTD today, and now have to buy another one, only, from EaseUS -- and it WORKS (?) -- then that would be cheaper than Laplink's solution.

Although, as far as I know, you only need ONE copy of that programme....

There is also a free version for transferring just your data files. But so what? You can do that with Team Viewer -- or a suitable USB....

Did I miss something or what - late in the day and I see when installed it say LIMITED....time, actions, or what.
Does that mean it "might do something" or "half way" or "well it might do something"?
The BUY splash screen is too aggravating to bother with - thank goodness for Revo.

This seems useless if you are migrating to a new OS on another partition or drive on the same computer since it is not possible to have both running at the same time. In my case, I have Win 7 on one, but want to migrate to the Win 10 partition. I don't want to upgrade the existing Win 7 because I have some legacy apps in a virtual XP mode inside Win 7 that I need to keep for occasional use, and, like Media Center, XP mode will be lost on an upgrade.

Like some others, unable to activate online, or using the offline method on offer, probable their server overloaded.
From their web site, I do get the strong impression two copies of the software is needed, and if that is the case, I personally would not wish to buy two copies of the program.
On deinstalling I was given a short term 35 minute half price offer, which, if two copies were required, this may help some people.
Removed and will wait the next offer mentioned further back in thr thread, especially if the requirements are clarified as to how one copy could be used in practice.

I'd like to ask please that the developer answer the questions that have been put here about the need to install a registered version on two computers.

If you're able to comment on the registration server crash, you should be able to give and answer on this question too.
It would save people a lot of guessing and perhaps disappointment when only one copy of the registered software won't do what they were hoping.

Thanks.

I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 10 with a single HD having dozens of GAOTD applications. Recently that HD became unbootable but with all non-OS applications and data intact. I now have a new HD with Windows 10 installed and running fine. What are the advantages to using this EaseUS program (compared to using Windows Explorer or any disk management program) to get at least a copy of all my downloaded apps and GAOTD giveaways (30+ GB) over to my new main drive. I plan on using the second drive (the old one) for daily backup of everything on the first drive (the new one). Can I expect at least some of the older GAOTD programs to still work? Is there any way to utilize or transfer the Registry information on the original drive over to the new drive? I have literally hundreds of downloaded programs (including GAOTD) I would like to make resident on my new HD. Thank you all for your comments and assistance.

re. some programs needing activation on the new system - some DRM schemes tie a license to your hardware. So when the app/plugin detects it's running on a different machine, it will need re-activating (and you might need to deactivate on the old machine first!).

Sarah,

"The code in promotion maybe have not been to activate the program, but we assure we will offer the new key in this week after the crush."

How do you propose sending out this key to the hundreds to thousands of GOTD customers? Since appears the software otherwise activated on GOTD side I am hoping the key will not create an issue otherwise.

It looks like it works, the interface seems fairly straightforward and - look - if it works as well as other EaseUs programmes, it should be golden. If not, well, what have you lost? You would not have been able to migrate the programs by yourself (more than likely) and anything you gain would be a winner. I have a lot of doubts about migrating to WIN10 from my present WIN7. I lost a lot of trusted programs when I went from XP to 7 and if this makes things in the next step-up easier, it'll be a winning situation.

Download it. It ain't gwine bite you!

There seems to be so many people having problems with installing the programme on TWO computers -- and after all, it ain't no good on just ONE -- I wonder if it is really very useful. I mean, these GOTD offers are not supposed to be "hobbled" in any way, so they should "just WORK", as they say.

I was HOPING to install programmes from my older Win7 computer onto this Win7 computer, with hopefully also NO loss of any programmes on THIS machine, which is my main computer.

But now I worry that with something that does not seem terribly reliable (unusual for EaseUS) either I will find I can't get it to install on the older machine, or if I do, nothing will transfer from there -- or worst of all possibly, I find I actually LOSE some of my GOTD programmes on this computer.... Of course that SHOULDN'T happen.

But can anyone assure us that it didn't/hasn't?

In fact, since there have been so much negative feedback, is there anyone out there who has had remarkable SUCCESS with the programme -- where everything got transferred, including all their GOTD programmes?

Because of course probably most of us are particularly interested in that, as we CANNOT go back and reinstall our GOTD programmes later -- we don't even have an effective registration number....

I am aware of course that the pool from which to expect any kind of "user experience" feedback is going to be remarkably small in this case, as you basically have to be ready with another "empty" computer (hard disk) just WAITING to do a transfer. And I bet there are very few of those going to be available in just one day.....

Good luck....

Same here. The activation server is a ghost and the offline activation was "waiting" for 1-1/2 hours while I took the dog for a long walk. Retrying now gets "internal server error" and that's all folks.
Looks like it might be an excellent program, every one of my installed programs shows either "likely" or OK but without activation, you can't save an image, so the program is absolutely useless. I sure wouldn't want to fork over $50 for a program that can't be activated.

I've had experience with Laplink PCmover Ultimate in moving most applications from old to new PCs. http://www.amazon.com/Laplink-PCmover-Ultimate-High-Speed-Cable/dp/B008MR37XK/

I'm sure that the EaseUS Todo program is very similar in capabilities and limitations.

You need to have the program installed on both PCs, so unless you have your new PC ready to go today, this isn't going to help.

The Laplink program is reasonably priced for all the work it does for you. I'll continue to buy it every time I get a new PC.

It is important to note that Microsoft products almost never transfer from old to new. The vast majority of other programs transfer and work fine.

It's a good idea to keep a list of software keys where you can find them before you need to make the transfer.

A "bare metal restore" with a proper imaging program might make more sense, although it would also install the operating system and you might have driver problems. I have Macrium Reflect Pro for this but have never checked to see if it works.

The Microsoft "equivalent" is pitiful and does not transfer programs, only data.

EaseUS ToDo Backup Workstation might be a great program to have based on the fact that it claims to be able to backup and restore files, partitions, Outlook, and Windows.

A) Can I use this on my old but much-loved XP Pro SP3 32-bit machine to make a VIRTUAL PC that will run as a virtual drive on my other PCs (Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit)?
B) If the answer to A) is yes, what are the step-by-step instructions, and what flavor of VIRTUAL PC will be created? Oracle Virtual Box? Windows Virtual PC? VMWare something?
There are many very savvy readers of these comments - could you try this and let us know? (I am NOT savvy - your comments are always much appreciated.)

A) No sorry, you need something like paragons Virtualisation manager and perform a physical to virtual conversion and os core drivers P2V tweak with same software, you will need to reactivate windows with a valid license key to run it under the chosen target virtual environment,
I have done it several times, virtualising several XP based development machines into a selection of virtual machines that can then be run on modern higher performance hardware. Most software will run seamlessly under the virtual environment, but not all... Software like this that uses a hardware fingerprint in the activation process will find a different hardware fingerprint and will need reactivating with a valid license. Hope that helps.

Wait a minute. If the idea is to migrate from one OS to another higher level more expensive newer OS.
Then would it not be in the interest of Microsoft to facilitate this and make it as easy and smooth as possible.
I suspect Windows or Microsoft already has free utilities or functions built into its new OS to do this.
I doubt this giveaway is a silver bullet cure all.
For example, if a user was on a 32 bit OS say for example XP and then upgrades to a newer OS like Windows 8.1 but he chooses the 64 Bit version.
By the way, is Laplink the pioneer of this genre of software? And is Laplink the best?

Reply   |   Comment by ric  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

No, the original program that was the pioneer of this genre of software was UnInstaller, originally marketed by MicroHelp during the early 1990's. At the time, Windows had no built-in uninstaller and things were a mess. UnInstaller not only automatically ferreted out the appropriate registry entries and obscure supporting DLL files, but due to the limited disk storage drive sizes of the time, included a feature to "archive" them (via ZIP compression) for full reinstallation later as a means to save valuable space.

There was also a feature to "transport" (which we now call "migrate") the archived application as a self-unarchiving(un-zipping)/self-installing executable "bundle" file which, if simply copied and run on another machine, allowed fully-working clones of software titles to be set up on other machines, complete with supporting DLL files if necessary.

MicroHelp seemed to understand the mysteries of the Windows Registry better than Microsoft tech support itself, and UnInstaller was a veritable miracle of its day. It was one of the most useful utilites available and was often suggested in most magazines as a "must-have" title.

UnInstaller was then marketed by CyberMedia around 1998 (you can still see it listed on their website(!), although the link to download a trial version of the software no longer works), then was bought out by McAfee (about when Windows ME appeared) who "improved" it to the point of becoming crippled and useless. They then quickly and finally buried it (an intentional management choice?) through lack of product marketing, technical support, expertise and updates. UnInstaller faded away in about a year, "odd" for such a successful software title.

It was extremely popular as the pre-McAfee versions worked very well -- too well, perhaps -- and I have long suspected that killing it off may have been McAfee's goal all along. As one of the software (cartel?) giants I think they voluntarily got rid of this viable threat to their (and the industry's) future livelihood. Gee, you just can't let a tool continue to exist in the marketplace that allows perfect clones of registered software to be installed on other machines while leaving the original intact, now can you? Your profits would dry up -- and they probably were beginning to! So do what big corporations have often done to inventors with such great ideas: buy them out, then bury the *&%# thing.

I have longed for another such tool for many years -- perhaps this is it? If I could just get it to register, maybe I could know. Looking forward to receiving a working activation key code...

Thanks, EaseUS and GOTD!

ok finally got an activation code from the offline activation page after leaving it idling for many minutes... set it to create an image file and waited for it to offer a list of programs to transfer... Itb reported 892 programs taking up 722.62GB which to me seemed possibly excessive... after going through the list I spotted some inconsistencies that would prevent the programs use in a real world scenario.... It reports Quartz Audiomaster Pro Eval with size 36.73GB.... that is not right! And futher down REDSHIFT 3 with size 36.73GB again that is not right it only has a CD full of data associated with it! Quartz AudioMaster Freeware with size 36.73GB that too is not right but a pattern seems to be emerging... PDF To Word 3 with size 36.73GB ... Mosaic-Pictures 2 with size 36.73GB and the entries like that pop up intermettently suggesting the program is for some unexplained reason associating some folder with 36.73GB of data in it with multiple programs and severly bloating the programs database with MANY copies of exactly the same data amounting to hundreds of gigabytes of wasted processing and space and potentially multiple copies of the same data on the target system! That makes it almost unusable... Firstly I would have to deselect Every single one of those incorrectly generated program entries and if possible transfer them manually... The program should spot redundancy like this and determine of the redundant folders associated with the programs is in fact a user data folder, like my Music or Video folder and if so DO NOT count it as part of the installed program but just some optional user data!

Trying to install under Windows 7 and it does not activate automatically.
When I tried the recommended link at http://activation.easeus.com/offline.php, the page hangs. I tried several times in a matter of an hour but it always hangs.
To me, if Easeus does not have how to cope with a higher traffic volume there is no reason to offer it as a Giveaway.

Installation of this program is required on both computers involving the transfer. Activation on my first computer was successful but I've tried twice to install on my second computer but the registration process kicks me to an "Easeus Product Offline Activation" process that asks for the licence code and machine code. Submission of this information puts the screen on a wait status with no further results.

unable to verify license code directly with their server OR via their offline verification page at http://activation.easeus.com/offline.php the page stalls on an animated gif circling away indefinatly. I guess their backend activation engine has fallen over under the load... this is where special GAOTD builds with simplified offline activation or pre-activated are sensible and less embarassing that a collapsing vendor activation system that just can't handle the load of a few thousand activations at a time...

Does EaseUS Todo PCTrans Pro 8.6 also transfer the free software that we downloaded and installed previously from giveawayoftheday, to another pc? I would hate to loose some of these programs.

Anything that was activated using the Activate.exe module will probably lose its GAOTD license, as will anything that relied on the vendors activation server and the data stored somewhere in the registry or is linked in anyway to a system specific fingerprint like this is. Some will survive a transfer but I would not count on it.
BTW GAOTD license is intended to be lost on system migration/decomissioning.... The expectation being is that if you need it that much after the pc is gone and you have a new one then you may like it enough to finally buy it!

Easeus activation fails and throws up "!unable to connect to server when verifying the license. Please follow the steps to activate" with a license code and machine code prefilled and a weblink. The webpage just hangs when I transcribe the given codes and click submit.
Do not want to miss the activation time window.
Can you help please?

No problems installing in XP, had a similar problem when trying to install in Win 7.
Followed the instructions and had no problems; may be worth your while to give it another go.

I had the same issue on XP - just keep trying to activate (in the program and / or online). It will EVENTUALLY activate for you, but it took me ages.

How is the license structured? If I install this on my current PC, what do I need to restore it?
This can also be useful as an extra step to a data backup plan, so I can reinstall and have some main apps reconfigured to a stable setup?

In order to use this software you must have a copy on each PC according to the user guide. Does the software allow for the installation of an unregistered version, in the future, on another computer? For example, if I get a new computer next month; can I use this software to transfer my data and programs to the new computer? The new computer will not have a registered version.

You raised an excellent query.
That effectively doomed 99% of the users.
Leaving the benefit to 1% who have both computers ready to install & activate this giveaway software and both connected to the internet during this 1 day GOTD expiry limit.
So what is the point of the giveaway for the other 99%?

"Before transferring, please install and run Todo PCTrans on both PCs." So this giveaway is useless unless I happen to have just purchased a new computer and haven't yet migrated things over? There seems to be no way that I can test it out now. Maybe I'm missing something?

Any difference between this version and version 8.0?

It lists programs on your PC that are compatible and "likely" compatible. Does not attempt transfer of incompatible programs. PCTrans itself is locked to the hardware.

OK, I haven't read docs yet to see if this is answered on website, help, or ...
Question: Do I download & Install this GOTD offer onto 1 or both PCs that I am going to test your software on?

Softpedia revue of this program says:
". . . connect two computers and easily transfer information between them. Thus, you can move applications, as well as files and folders from one system to the other, without having to use any type of external device.
In order to start the operation, you need to install the software on both PCs and connect them from inside the application"

I expect that Mike will have something intelligent to post about this one. I'll wait for it.
One day soon I will be trying to move my XP applications across to a newer Win7 PC.
Also Mike, is there a forum somewhere that we can find you if we need your help on something not related to a GOTD offer?

Installed and registered without any problems opens up to a minimalistic interface, turned psychic powers on!

Decided to try to create an image of applications; this is where I found the interface most unhelpful, far too little feedback to the user as to what is going on.

When it had done its thing clicked somewhere in the application box and the list of the applications appeared. They are listed and ordered under the likelihood of transfer is possible.

Cleared ticks from all except one and it created an image for me.

On reading the help file it appears that after the transfer the serial number would have to be re-entered to activate the program. This I am sure will not work on many of the programs download from this site.

Many years ago there was a program that claimed to be able to transfer programs from one system to another. As I remember it was very expensive and disappeared as far as I know. Would be great if there was one still around that worked and was affordable.

EaseUS tend to make really good programs and I was very disappointed in the interface for this one, felt a bit lost when using it.

Will test later to see if my image of the lovely little program Magic Camera will transfer to my other drive. But the fact that it does not appear to transfer the registration information for the program I have little hope that it will be successful.

Reinstalled the image file to a new drive; the activation codes were not accepted, unable to load components because the path was incorrect.
The latter was not unexpected as my programs are installed on another partition; never use C;/Program Files by choice.

It would appear that it does not extract the required parts from the registry for automatic activation to occur.
Most developers use the registry for registration as it is easier to hide than to do it via a file.

Of limited use, where it works will be great, although it did not work with this particular program it didn't do any damage.

I'll stick with it for the moment.

I have purchased this many times for my customers when migrating from one pc to another. I've been very impressed with just how much it has been able to transfer.
I've only had one computer that none of the programs transferred, so overall it has been very successful.
I won't download the giveaway, I purchase this on a regular basis for my business.
