I have not received the link yet. Have tried twice to download. I had an earlier version of this program and would like to get the current version.

The only difference from 5.19 to 5.20 is "FB2 eBbooks fix for line separation". Not sure if it's worth the effort for that 1 fix. Others have mentioned the previous registration carried over when they updated to 5.20. Does anyone know if you can simply update to 5.20 within the program and keep Pro status?

I ran Setup.exe and got: "Failed to connect. Please try again later". No install obtained. Issues?

Hmm, I cannot install it. I get the error message "The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program". I suspected my anti-virus software to create the trouble, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. Any suggestions?

TIA

Good day,

No idea why some are having a hard time activating this in W10, as all went perfectly from downloading to entering the key in (upgrade to pro) settings. Might be, because I entered the key after downloading the free version software from the author's site, and turning that into the Pro version. I have had this software on other computers, and it is a great, no nonsense program, that does what it is supposed to do and do it well.

I see some asking if you can use this to read Kindle books. As those Amazon books need to be DRM free to be read by any program other then the Kindle App. You would need to find a program that can take away the DRM from the Kindle book first, and do an internet search to find one. The formats this program reads does NOT include the Kindle format, and are easily found out by reading the description above or at the author's site, too funny ( ePub, MOBI, FB2, PDF, CBZ, CBR and TXT formats).

GOTD and Iceream Apps,
Thank you always, for the updated e-book reader giveaway!

I have, and have used for years since a previous giveaway, version 5.0.7., which I love and highly recommend. It seems that this is a pro version and has additional features, and I would have loved to download and use it, but alas it does not apparently work under XP. A great pity, but I recommend it for anyone who does not have it and has a compatible OS.

On the giveaway product homepage linked to above it states different windows version requirements to that shortened list in the information panel above which will likely prevent some users from updating to this giveaway or even trying it for the first time:


System Requirements

OS Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008

NOTE that the 5.20 ebookreader.exe is linked to only be accepted as a valid win32 application in WIndows NT 6.0 and ABOVE. That means it will only run in Windows Vista and above. It will NOT load in Windows 2000, XP or Windows Server 2003. They will ALL report it's not a valid win32 application.

And for those that have an earlier version and would like to see what's new in the versions since the last giveaway:

https://icecreamapps.com/Ebook-Reader/changelog.html

I shall update to this version but never had a need to use it since the previous giveaway... I previously had 5.07 PRO and downloaded and installed the 5.20 installer via the link on the changelog page link above and it automatically picked up the PRO license from 5.07 so do not be surprised if installing over a previous activated giveaway that you cannot find where to insert the license code in the readme.txt for this giveaway.

The downloaded file says it is Pro, and was an executable file- not a .zip. When installed it was the regular reader, not the Pro. There was no place given to register it. Please Help- Thank you.

Installed it on Windows 10 but can't see it under installed programs. Disabled the anti-virus/firewall as well, as instructed in the text file but still nothing. Can anyone explain why this is happening?

Reply   |   Comment by Cho  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Cho, I have Windows 10 and same problem. Setup is blocked by virus checker, but don't know which one.

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

per the download readme file: IMPORTANT: please note that due to the Themida wrapper usage your installation might be blocked by your antivirus (AVG, Avast or Kaspersky)! I have Avast and tried turning it off but still doesn't install.

The software does not show in installed programme list even when it says installation successful. Using on Windows 10. What could be the reason?!

Reply   |   Comment by Cho  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Cho, Did you go to the install directory to see if the exe file is there? Also, did you restart your computer after you disabled your virus and firewall software so that they couldn't start after the reboot?

I want to say, i have Kindle 10 Gen. The default format for this device is azw3.
This software cannot read that or recognize.
Some format that it reads is pdf and mobi.

Good Morning all! - Hey, I have a question, a big question - does it sync with Amazon Kindle books on my personal Amazon account? And if so, does it support the buggy "collections" function of Amazon? I am anxious to try, but does anyone know the answers to my questions? Thanks!

Reply   |   Comment by Vince  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Vince,
This was offered previously (few weeks back), on GOTD and it will convert Kindle App books to be read by PDF or this Iceream Reader, and take away the DRM. I would read the responses to get an idea how well it works.

Does the checkbox for automatically check for updates need to be unchecked. Will it revert to free version if it updates itself? Thanks

Reply   |   Comment by tech9494  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

tech9494, The text file I got in the zipfile said that there were no free upgrades to the program.

Reply   |   Comment by Domi  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

tech9494, yes, it reverts to Free if you do not take precautions. This happened to my version 5.07 from a previous giveaway.

Seems a decent ebook reader for Windows, which is something I've been looking for recently. Nice clean interface and easy to use. Installation was quick and easy, too. If you're after such an app, this one is definitely worth a look.

Installer won't let you specify the installation directory. I've been using V3.10 since the last giveaway (thanks Icecream Apps!) so I wanted this update, but not if I can't choose where it goes. V3.10 works great - no problems reading/parsing ebooks that I've encountered, so I would recommend you try this software.

Reply   |   Comment by Ken  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Ken, I installed the program after you and I was able to install it to the directory of my choice. I used a fresh install so perhaps that made the difference from your experience.

Reply   |   Comment by Domi  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

Ken,

I had an older version as well and while this new version did not give me a choice of where to install, it did install on the same drive/folder where the older one was and updated it. The only oddity is that there is nowhere to input this new key, though it does show v5.20 Pro, so it seems to have carried over the registration from the previous 5.19 version. Weird.

Reply   |   Comment by jboy  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

jboy, 5.20 will use the old key from previous 5.* giveaways so will not give you the opportunity to input the new key as it's not needed if you had a compatible previous Pro license.

It works. Go to settings and add key.
Font changing doesn't work in some epub files. Otherwise good alternative to sumatra pdf.
Thank you.

Click Settings in lower right corner, then upgrade to PRO, then enter your code and OK. Job done!

Sparky, I have the same situation. After installing the Pro version is already shown. When going to settings, there is NO registration button, as shown in the eReader online support and your directions. It appears to automatically register the software without inserting the activation code, but there is nothing with the software confirming registration. The bottom line is, it works, but not sure how to register if it requires me to insert a register it.

Can't find how to add note and highlight.

Reply   |   Comment by David  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

David, hold the right mouse button down and drag the cursor over some text. A pop up menu should then appear with the option to add a note, highlight etc.

David,
When you select text, options automatically pops up.

I can't see anywhere to put the registration code. I assume that's because the old registration from version 5.19 has carried over to this version.

Reply   |   Comment by Jerry  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Jerry, correct it carries over existing version 5.* pro licenses so no need, or feature, to add new Pro license key.
