This is a late comment. So the user Id and code I got immediately did come through right away but when entered it would always come up as "Wrong code" no matter whether I copied and pasted or very carefully entered it manually. I posted that part of my comment on the Giveaway day (#41 right now)
I tried again today and it worked....
Sort of. Now it wants a serial number. I didn't get one and believe I never will. Never trying this companies software again. Uninstalling

As with other people I sent off my email for licence number (stated I would receive a email within a few minutes) well 24 hours later and still waiting,
I have a few of their products and have missed out on a lot over the years due to them never sending the promised email.
They need to manage their cmpany better.

Would you believe it? I've just requested the activation code for yesterday's giveawayoftheday of Franzis FOCUS projects 3 Pro from Franzis before contacting them with regard to not receiving the activation code yesterday, and I received tha activation code within seconds AND it does activate.

The email received, on my Gmail account was delivered to my Spam folder.

Now I will thank both Franzis and Giveawayoftheday for yesterday's giveaway.

Mick,

Well, well... a big THANK YOU for the encouragement to try what worked for you!

I left a comment last night (#62) after already waiting several hours and several repeated attempts at registering using my pre-existing account.

This morning, after reading your comment I thought "what the heck, it's the next day and I've nothing to lose now", tried again and, voila!, I got the codes in seconds!

(...though they REALLY should do something different in their future preparations for the registration requests that have, so far, always result in these many posted complaints. Or maybe it's a strategy to filter out the casual "grabbers" from the truly-interested "die-hards"?...)

Thank you, and thanks to both FRANZIS and GOTD for this interesting and useful application.

HMarx,

Oh, forgot to mention that on my 4K display, this is apparently one of those programs that is not "high-DPI aware" and everything about it appeared very tiny.

I did write up some comments on how to address this issue in this forum post:

https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/topic/467145

Hopefully the advice on how to adjust "compatibility" settings can help others if they encounter the same issue.

It's now the day after the giveaway of FOCUS projects 3 Pro and I still haven't received an activation code from Franzis, even though I used two different email accounts AND tried about a dozen times to register. I even took a screenshot of the page that tells me I'll be receiving the code so that I can contact them about their foul-up.

The amazing thing is, I've received two promotional emails from Franzis with no problems today, and still no activation code. I have checked my spam folders on both email accounts and there's nothing in there from Franzis.

I even requested activation codes from previous giveaways and received the required emails within seconds in my regular email account.

There's something drastically wrong with Franzis' response to this non-receipt of activation codes, and I'm sorely disappointed with them.

I must be somewhat lucky . . . After a second request I got the registration email. Only one snag: the registration number is rejected by the software as invalid. So I filled out a detailed support ticket, but still no joy.

This is the first time over several years that I have had any registration issue with a GAOTD offering. Doesn't look good on FRANZIS Verlag GmbH :(

The only issue I have is that my other plugins I've purchased from them aren't in there.

It is interesting to read the user comments for the previous times FRANZIS titles were offered. In almost every case there are a large number of people posting comments about not receiving timely e-mails for registering the products.

No doubt this is partly due to the apparently-huge popularity of these titles, with a corresponding larger number (if not larger fraction) of users complaining.

However, I would have thought that after so many previous instances of these problems happening, by now FRANZIS should be anticipating the surge of requests on these Giveaway days and somehow increasing their capacity (at least temporarily) to handle/respond to the crushing load of requests.

I also seem to recall from a past offer (may not have been for FRANZIS) that there was some issue/difficulty with sending out e-mails with the registration codes to Yahoo! addresses in particular. Perhaps many of today's users still waiting are using Yahoo! (I'm one, and still waiting)?

They are obviously having some trouble for one reason or another. If they send you an email tomorrow or whenever it's fixed, and it contains the registration information, you will be able to activate it it then. Not sure if that is true if you don't already have an account. I hope they do that, as they have done this in a past giveaway here. I have bought a few of their products as well and like them. I am not a photography expert either, but their software was pretty intuitive with many choices if you don't want to set it up the manual way which is possible too. I hope we get it! C'mon Franzis, help us out!

Password reset token is invalid. That is the message I get when entering new password information to reset the password that for some reason is no longer valid (yes I already have an account). Just to get eventually get information to paste into the installer. This is too much nonsense. Thank You for your kind offer however a free software program is not an attempt to withdraw gold from Fort Knox in the USA. A more simpler registration would be more appreciated.

I was really looking forward to trying this out. Usual screwups with registering their product makes me leery with even trying. This one is no different. (I did get the user Id and registration code quickly though)
All I get though is a box popup saying wrong registration code after hitting OK. No matter if I copy and paste or VERY carefully input manually.
Don't know why I even try with this company anymore.

During the program installation, I chose the Internet button and I was redirected to the registration page, I logged in (I have an account on Franzis) and I came to step 3. From that moment I waited 30 minutes and I did not receive the confirmation e-mail. Then I repeated the procedure from the beginning and it has already been 40 minutes and the e-mail has not arrived.
In other folders (eg spam), there is nothing.

Waited for an hour and received no code. Tried to sign another acount, with other email address on Franzis, and another hour has passed without a code, Tried again the third time, with the third email address, and again, no received code.

Yet, I have three acouns on Franzis, and no code for this app.

Thanks for my time...

As usual, codes will not validate the program even when cut and pasted directly from Franzis own e-mail to me. Happens to many people and to me more than once in past, too. Like others, have given up. Vendor makes useful software but has zero respect for customers or would not treat them like this.

Once I had sorted out the password for the old account, registration was a breeze. The email with the ID and serial number arrived almost before I could open my email program.

Installation and activation were fast and without problems on W7 Home Premium.

I haven't had time to fully explore the potential yet but a quick test with a close-up cat photo worked exactly as promised. Head was in focus (as intended when the photo was taken) but the body faded to a blur. FP3 Pro has rendered the entire cat in focus which has pleased the cat no end

Well worth the acrobatics to get installed and activated and my thanks to Franzis and GAOTD for making it available. It will be of great use in correcting past macro photos beyond what was possible in-camera.

I've still got in use on my computer the Pro v1 version that was a GOTD way back in 2016 and it's a program that I personally think is one of the varied GOTD things that IS worth a d/load or at least a trial. No idea just what differences exist in the updates to this... or even the Prov4 which is actually what you get now from the official Franzis site but it's certainly one that I think is useful to have available. I'm not going to upset my good old v1 for the sake of changes which may or not be any use to ME .. but if you don't have this at all then the available v3 here must be well worth having to anyone even if only for occasional use.
There seem to be far too many poor and useless programs lately on GOTD... grab this one which is NOT of that ilk...
