I downloaded and installed Greeting Card Builder. After installing, I got the GOTD screen telling me to register the program and the registration key. However, when I click Help, Register is grayed out. When I click About, the screen that opens says Full Version. Do I have to do anything else to register since I never put in the key myself?

How do you download the extra templates?

gordonwh40,
I believe the extra templates that are available for download are already included in the initial installation.

gordonwh40,

You just click on "Download more templates" (bottom right)

TK, you "believe"? Why don't you try?

ouialaraison,
Why do you assume I did not download and install them all myself? I did and I then checked the ttemplates contents created and last modified file dates and the research led me to believe that those templates are already included in the installation also if you read the change log it does say added 40+ premium templates. Without monitoring the entire template installation process with something like sysinternals procmon.exe after which | I would have given a definitive I know... I say I believe. Not I hypothesise or I imagine. The evidence leads me to believe what I said. What did you do?

TK, Well.... maybe it is just me being blessed by the gods....As it is a giveaway I can't uninstall and reinstall to double check, but the anniversary pack for instance tripled the number of anniversary templates in my program. I now have 180 templates altogether. Lucky me! :)

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

ouialaraison, you must be truly blessed as I only have 178 templates in my general folder. I could install again to a virtual machine that never had a previous giveaway of this and so could not import templates from that etc but why bother.
IMHO the design of the templates categories is flawed putting everything into the general category displaying only 6 at a time in the new from a template window with no template count displayed, each category of templates should be in their own category folders and the downloadable packages should go into their own folders since there could easily be name collisions for the templates when installing extra packages.

This is the first offering I have accepted from GAOTD in many years. Most don't interest me at all but this one did. Downloaded and installed with no problems on my Win 10 X 64 system and registration was very simple. Not a great program but does exactly what it says which is good enough for me.

Do see the registration key in the install but fail to see where I enter that information into the program.

A comment on FB made me decide to extract the unzipped files to my desktop. Doing this allowed me to install and register the program. Not sure why the need for the extra step. I have never needed to do that before with GAOTD or other zipped files that I can remember anyway. Thanks.

I downloaded the extra templates but they do not show up in the program. I downloaded then opened the program as the website says I should do. Any help out there? Thanks

Shirley,
I believe the extra templates that are available for download are already included in the initial installation so you won't see any extra templates after installing the template packages.

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

Shirley,

You downloaded the templates then opened Greeting Card Builder? I am afraid you just forgot to install them... Just doubleclick on the executables containing the packs (.exe files in your download folder) and I am sure the templates will show in the program.

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

... but only if you reopen the program AFTER installing them.

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

TK, You are wrong. It is really EXTRA templates not included in the package.

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

ouialaraison,
Care to back up your assertion? as instlling the downloaded packages do not add any extra templates to the available catagories or selection. The downloaded packages are designed for version 3.0 not specificly for 3.2.0 which includes an extra 40+ templates.

Wont attach card to my email client. After several attempts I uninstalled.
Thanks anyway...

A couple more limitations
You can only have one card open at a time.
No way to create an envelope

Installed on Win 7 64, no problems. Program works but is lacking a number of features we all expect on modern programs which make it difficult to use. These aren't show stoppers, they just make the program hard to use.
1. No undo - Ctrl Z doesn't work either. Giant hassle.
2. Can't apply fonts, bold, underline, etc. to specific words, only the full text block. Thus, if you want to bold just one word, you need to create a second text box with just that word and mess around lining it up.
4. There is no text wrap. You need to press enter at the end of each line. This makes it nearly impossible to write a paragraph.

Installed on windows 10, 64 bit, then registered it. Everything went off without a hitch. Thank you!

Installed okay on win 8; Entered Reg code after opening program. Closed program and reopened to verify full version by clicking on image of scissors on upper left corner of main screen.(had to x out of creating new card and one other screen).
Make sure you get the free adds(weddings & christmas) from their website.

andym, Where are the templates? I find no link to download them, only webpages that state they are already included:
"These are parts of Wedding card templates included in Greeting Card Builder. You are free to download the software and view full list in it."

I expected to get a new version but it is the same 3.2.0 program offered ten months ago. Well, thanks any way.

Reply   |   Comment by Luis  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

Luis, the giveaway title does say 3.2.0 so no reason to install it if you already have it. I had an older giveaway 2.0. something that apears to have been silently removed by this ones instalation which I am not overly impressed about!

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

I tried to install by clicking setup.exe but nothing happens. It fails to install on Windows Vista.

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

John,
You can try temporarily disabling your antivirus/security software during the install. Several popular antivirus programs apparently block GAOTD installers as "suspsicious". This is not because they are infected with malware (the security app would alert you about that), but simply due to the actions they take to install and register the app.
I have to temporarily disable AVG on my system to allow GAOTD installs to run.

Best of Luck!

LuckyStiff63, Thanks for the suggestion. Disabling AVG allowed the program to install on Windows 7 64-bit. Just wish someone had offered this insight earlier this week.

Installed on W10 64 desktop without any issues. The program does not ask for the registration key until you try to save your creation. Enter the code which should say you have successfully resisted. Exit the program and restart which should have now removed the 15 day trial indication. You can also download more free addon templates here

I've spent about half an hour and the program does what it clams. Thanks GOTD - this is a keeper.

I'm not sure if I downloaded the free GOTD version or a trial version. How would a person know?

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

Billie, If you got the download link here on GOTD through social media then it's from GOTD. If you got the link through email and got the download through that link then it's also from GOTD. The only way you got the trial version is if you downloaded it from links other than GOTD; for instance say "Softpedia, FileForum, Download.com, Major Geeks" or any number of other download sites.

My guess is that you haven't installed the license key.

Billie, They are the same you just need to activate the full version mode using the license code provided in the readme.txt in the GAOTD zip bundle.

The description says this is version 3.2.0 that sells for $39.90. However the website of Pearl Mountain Software lists the price for version 3.2.0 as $29.90. Typo?.. or is there a difference in what is offered here and the pay-for version?

What it's free so why blackmail me to pay $30 to stop the thing watermarking every card I make just because I use the Free system

I was able to download and extract all files to the same folder. I also got the registration key and a message that the program was activated, but I can not find the program on my computer to open it. All I can find are the readme, setup, and gcd files. Deleting them since there is no access.

Sorry! I changed the standard font and can now use national letters.

You can only use English letters, no national letters like å, ä, ö and ü like the german and Swedish alphabet.
