#55 Thank you for your response Suze. I did use Admin rights to do both. That's something I've always done on this laptop with Windows 7. However, I discovered that I had installed Batch Inpaint2.2 at some point and had forgotten about it. So I don't feel as if I've lost out too much. Perhaps it was a conflict between the two installations. My laptop seems to be functioning without any problems so I'll just have to wait until the next freebie which requires "activate" to find our if it was a one off. I sincerely hope so!

Further to my last comment - I have run checks on everything I can think of and my laptop has come up clean with no malware/ virus in evidence. I tried once again to install Inpaint. It installed perfectly but when I ran activate it again triggered crashes. I immediately shut down but from what I could see before it did all my plug-ins seemed to be affected. I feel quite sad as I have Inpaint on a Vista laptop and it works perfectly and I wanted to have the later version under my WIndows 7 laptop. Activate has not caused me a problem in the past and my laptop is functioning perfectly as far as I can tell. Leaves me kind of worried why this should happen

Colin, did you happen to both run and activate as an Admin? Sometimes that's the only way to successfully install some software. It might be too late for Inpaint, but good luck.

use fb approach to dl, the post did reach on my timeline,
but the GOTD site hang up with no dl link appeared.
so went by email link & did receive a dl link.

as i saw some win 10x64 users had problems,
so disabled what had to disable,
followed the steps in ReadMe.

hope this can help some users here.

thanks TeoreX & GOTD.

I'm a fan of Inpaint but this version is a backward step.

The main issue, and one that makes it unusable, is the lack of scroll bars. As others have mentioned, the new method for scrolling uses the mouse scroll wheel. Which is no use for a laptop user with no scroll wheel. So if you zoom in you can't move the image at all (if they don't want scroll bars, simply add a right click drag feature).

Secondly, it's actual inpainting seems to have taken a backwards step too with noticeable edges to the inpainted areas. This was never an issue with previous versions.

A shame, but hopefully can regain it's former glory in some future version.

Before installing today's giveaway, Inpaint 7.1, I scanned GOTD's zipped folder with 4 different anti-virus/anti-malware programs. (I always do that.) All 4 showed that it was clean. After extracting the zipped folder's contents, I scanned the extracted files. Again, all 4 anti-virus/anti-malware programs showed that they were clean.

However, after I ran the Setup.exe file, within seconds of the installation finishing, my main anti-virus/anti-malware program, which I use for real-time protection, popped up a threat alert flagging C:\Program Files\Inpaint7\Inpaint.exe. It reported the threat type as "Gen:Variant.Symmi.82515."

Seeing the threat alert, I uploaded the Inpaint.exe file to VirusTotal. It had been scanned previously, so I had the site freshly "Reanalyze" it. Here's the link to the results:

https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/a15f4e059e23dfd42b29e3380c1e451051350e796c422dd8ee6fba88982ac1b6/detection

11 out of 67 scanners, including Bitdefender, F-Secure, and Ad-Aware, reported malware in the file, usually the same "Gen:Variant.Symmi.82515." Among the 56 that reported the file clean were Symantec, Avira, Kaspersky, Avast, and AVG.

If Inpaint 7.1's executable is really clean, the publisher, Teorex, should contact the makers of the scanners that detected malware in it to discover the cause(s) of the false positives.

Love this program - I have the paid version on my desktop and today's free offering on my Win 10 tablet. Installation has been straightforward and simple, and I use it frequently.

In this new version 7.1 I don't like the lack of scrollbars to help move the image. When I am working on a picture and am zoomed in, without the scrollbar I cannot easily move the picture while still zoomed to extend an area that I am touching up. In addition, when I zoom out to see the entire picture the image is not centered in the workspace. Without the scrollbars there is too much time wasted zooming in and out when you are trying to move the image.

If you are determined to not have the scrollbars then you desperately need a grab tool that lets you grab the image and move it around while still zoomed in. Also you need a button to automatically center the image in the workspace - but that would be adding two new features that wouldn't be needed if you kept the scrollbars in the first place.

What's the deal with this software. Scary ...!!!!
It alerted my windows 8.1 64 bits with the following blue screen message (This is not from my AV software, it's turned off):

"Windows protected your PC
Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk."

and below that there're 2 buttons

Run anyway Don't run.

Off course, I did NOT run. This is scary.!!!!

Even thought, I have the 6.1 version installed.

There are several users reporting errors when trying to install on 32-bit Windows.

Can we get confirmation this is working on Windows 7-32-bit?

Reply   |   Comment by Dave  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Dave, I think the problems are XP related (even with SP3 and up to date dotnet stuff) not 32/64 bit. I think the main executable is hard wired to run on Vista or later (may be wrong, but I think it has to do with which version (of Visual Studio?) it is compiled against), and I suspect the installer may have both a 32 bit and 64 bit copy inside, and it installs whatever it thinks it is running on.

1) Download the zip file.
2) Extract all the files in it to a separate folder.
3) Disable your antivirus.
4) Run setup. If you're not already using an admin account, right click and run as administrator.
5) UNCHECK launch app and click Finish.
5(a) Reenable your antivirus.
6) Run activate like you ran setup (as admin). MAKE SURE Inpaint is NOT running when you do this!!! If you did step 5 and unchecked the launch box you should be fine.
7) Navigate to the folder the program is in (C:\Program Files\Inpaint7 for 64 bit Windows; I would guess it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Inpaint7 for 32 bit.)
8) Double click Inpaint.exe to run the program.
9) If you want a desktop shortcut (and who doesn't), right click Inpaint.exe and choose "Send to Desktop (create shortcut)".

This is a great program for what it does. One of my all time favourite GOTD apps and glad to have discovered the company and its other tools through GOTD. I just tried a simple edit to make sure it works so cannot comment on any changes from previous versions. Thanks GOTD and TeoreX.

No horizontal or vertical bar when I enlarge an image by zoom.
It is not possible to zoom in the sides of the image.
I think this is a beta version of Inpaint software. :(

Reply   |   Comment by Gruko  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Gruko, I replied to a similar comment earlier today. The zoom feature will center on the part of the image where your mouse cursor rests. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, move your cursor to a corner and scroll the wheel up to zoom in. The image will zoom in to that corner. This is kind of a new feature that seems to be mimicking how pinch-zoom works on phones and tablets. It's an odd thing for a desktop program.

Reply   |   Comment by Aaron  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Gruko, It has a new form of auto scroll. Put your mouse on the area you want to work on and use the mouse wheel to enlarge and it will enlarge into that section. I liked the scrollbars as well, but this is progress.

Chris, it's not progress if you don't have a mouse wheel (ie a laptop user). It's literally the opposite of progress.

I had the BatchInpaint from an earlier GOTD offering and liked it very much. I tried today's offering and liked it even more. I agree with some of the comments regarding improvements or adjustments, but overall it is a handy and easy to use program. It's working fine on my Win7Pro. I also took advantage of today's 50% discount and bought it.

Reply   |   Comment by Tam Ng  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Tam Ng,

Maybe email TeoreX support? Support e-mail is: support@theinpaint[.]com

If the old version de-activated I would think that the key's registry value was deleted, but since the new version isn't activated, maybe nothing was written in its place, or the wrong value was entered. If Activate.exe has permission to alter [remove?] the old value, it should have permission to replace it, so the only thing I can think of at the moment is that maybe something stopped Activate.exe from completing (?). Maybe it was your security software, though usually when that happens I *think* Activate.exe doesn't do anything, but I could be wrong.

Try System Restore. This should return you to position immediately before you installed v7.1, i.e. with v6.2 installed. (On Windows 10, Start - Control Panel- Recovery - Open System Restore. HTH.

Love these programs without a serial number nor any way to tell if activated. Yes I ran activate in the download, yes it loaded the page " now activated". Run the program & click ABOUT & it says nothing. Why does it show serial number box which implies it's not activated. I mean how hard can it be to allow us to know it's activated since if it's not it is dead by midnight tonight. Sweet.

Julie,

"Now if only Corel was a giveaway of the day as well."

:)
Best you can do with Corel in my experience is get on their mailing list, always check software sales [e.g. Fry's, Newegg, Amazon], & be patient. You do need to be aware of the current version however, since sales on old versions are unfortunately common. If you already have one or more Corel apps installed in win10, you'll probably also get pop-up offers, without any Corel apps running. While I'm still waiting for a deal on PaintShop Pro Ult X10 & VideoStudio Pro Ult 2018, I've been able to pick up the last several versions, while they were still current, for around $25 each.

Reply   |   Comment by Suze  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

WaveThemes, sadly you are correct, although system requirements does claim it supports windows XP it clearly does not. The executable is built to only be recognised as a valid win32 application on Vista/server 2008 and above. Check to see if you have any system restore points you can use to restore previous versions as the highest previous version should retain activation. Previously 6.0 and earlier they all used the same registry keys and that meant when you activated 6, then 5.1 would no longer recognise the new key and same for earlier versions. But as from Version 7 the registry key used has the major version number appended to the product name so for me 6.0 and 7.1 both retain activtion. If you still have the installer 6.0 is the last giveaway I have that is XP compatible.

4) If everything is fine, reactivate your anti-virus

Bob, the activation program believes that it has been activated but due probably to your anti-virus program it is not.

Bob, For some reason I had to click "Activate exe." to get it to register. It usually does it automatically.

Very glad to see InPaint as a giveaway. I had two versions - one the very first iteration - of the app on my XP system, but none on my Win 7. I wonder how long the 50% discount offer will last. I am very busy today, but if I like it this new version, I'd like to purchase it.

John, did you run Inpaint as Administrator? Not doing so is often the reason why the results cannot be saved.

John,
befor running activate.exe you have to close the program.

John, Check comment #35 for full explanation on install

In short because of the wrapper used by GOTD, you have to pose the Antivirus

How do you tell if its registered corrected? I think I extracted to correct folder. I looked under the "i" on the "about" to see if it had giveaway or my name under the (information) but has inpaint.. so not sure if I got it right. I have to go to work so not sure when I can check back here. Thank you.

Kim,

On today's Inpaint I do not see the following two items under the "Help" menu:

"Order..."

"Enter Serial Key"

...the way I now see for the previous MultiViewInpaint installation of October 2016. (I wonder what happened to its previously-registered/activated status? Did Windows updates undo it?).

InPaint is a "must have program". I already have version InPaint 6.2 but this new one is much better. I also love the activation process. Thanks a lot Teorex and GAOTD for a great tool.

Hi, I wouldn't exactly call Inpaint 'jack of all trades', but it has its uses and it's worth keeping in one's photo Toolbox!! - provided it doesn't play around spoiling other fixtures on users desktops, Installation allows earlier versions of Inpaint to stay intact (especially if kept on different locations on PC), a.s.o. We had a shedload of eager Registry 'snoopers' of lately, making us feel on edge when we realize something is suddenly 'undone' without our control or permission..
Hope TeoreX doesn't follow similar trend! Backing up Registry beforehand in fear of changes done when installing from the same Vendor is really not an option, gift or purchase, sorry.

Since last Giveaway (v.6.2) it improved few things, as seen here:
https://www.theinpaint.com/download.html#changelog

That said - I have few of their Software and enjoy using daily (like Folderico for instance) and would like to carry on with my support to TeoreX. Don't let me down please!

fran,

In the past TeoreX has always played nice with very good manners. The apps, e.g. Inpaint, are made up of a single .exe file that can be placed anywhere on your drive(s), with registry entries limited to a single TeoreX key. The registration or activation key, in the past at least, has always been overwritten by the new key, but the developer has been unusually nice in making sure new keys also work with older versions. :)

I installed this program a couple of years ago and found it very good especially for background removal. Unfortunately, I had some problems with the PC requiring Windows re-install and could of course not re-install/activate the Giveaway.
I do appeal to the publisher or GOTD or both, to enable reactivation even after the giveaway offer has passed, as long as one has downloaded the set-up file.
This is absolutely possible like on a couple of other Giveaway sites. I can in the case of Windows reset, etc ... re-install giveaways, as long as you still have the valid key, unless it was for a limited period.

xprt007, the idea behind getting it for free is, you get a chance to try the program including all the options without any restrictions. It's unfortunate that you had problems with you PC and lost the program, but you milked the program for two years and I would thing that's more to decide if you like it. The price is more than reasonable, buy it. What you are asking the programmer to do, they may as well give it away for free and I'm sure they are not in the business to do that.

Great program, I loved the elder version. Thanks to TeoreX and GOTD.

I could install it without removing of my elder version.

Have a nice day and enjoy.

Thanks to GAOTD I've had Inpaint for many years and loving it! I'm a noob when it comes to photo editing, and even I can get professional looking results with a few clicks. My highest recommendation.

For some reason the scrollbars are missing. How do I scroll an enlarged image to fine tune the Inpainted area? All of the older versions have it.

Reply   |   Comment by Cheis  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

Cheis, the new version uses a kind of smart zoom. If you have a mouse with scroll-wheel, move your cursor to the part of the image you want to enlarge and then rotate your mouse scroll-wheel up. The image will zoom centered where the mouse cursor is pointed. It takes some getting used to and is not as accessible as traditional scroll bars. Perhaps the developer will take this comment to heart.

Reply   |   Comment by Aaron  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Cheis, To move image, just hold SPACE button and move it using left mouse button.

Says its for windows xp as well but does not run at all because its 64 bit only lol uninstalled

Reply   |   Comment by DBpvr  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

DBpvr, it's not a 64bit application it is built to only be loaded in Windows NT 6.0 and above which means 32bit Vista / Server 2008 or newer so could NEVER load under XP.
The System Requirements needs to be updated and the setup executable modified to not let it install on unsupported versions of windows. Other than that its an easy to use tool that still just does a pretty good job most of the time.

DBpvr, on a side note it installed fine on Vista,windows 7,8,1 and 10
