Installed and registered without a problem for me. I can't speak for other writer's out there, but I get thrilled when I see a program here that's geared towards writers. You should do more.

I had a previous version. There was no problem updating to this new version. They sent me the new serial number within less than a minute. This is a nice program. I don't use it every day, but it's very helpful for me when I do. Thanks very much, GAOTD and Vijua!

No problem with registration. However, when I tried to import a html file created in another program - which views as okay in Firefox and has no problem converting to Kindle - the program reports that the file is corrupt and cannot be imported. This file wasn't a doc file conversion to html, but was created from scratch in a coding program called Hippoedit.
Would there be any workaround for this?

Solved problem with repetitive registration. Closed program with Exit, not Log Out. Anyway, the issue with 1 month is still unclear. Go to Subscriptions next to your name and it says Free License with Renewal dates in a month time. What does Renewal mean? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Downloaded, installed, received reg number. It seems that registration valid only 1 month, until 5th January. Any info/opinion on that? Also is asking for registration every time when the program is opened. Did I do anything incorrectly, or others are experiencing the same?

Help! Not a proper comment, but go through the whole process, click to start the programme and get a Windows popup - :
"The procedure entry point ReleaseSRWLockExclusive could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll."

Not only do I have no clue what this means, I don't even know if it means my computer is missing a bit, or the download is - I've tried twice, and get this both times
Can anyone offer advice, please -

Angharadz, ReleaseSRWLockExclusive Requirements
Minimum supported client
Windows Vista [desktop apps]
Minimum supported server
Windows Server 2008 [desktop apps]

System Requirements: Windows XP is not a true statement.
It is sad that companies are creating programs and do not even know what systems they will work on.

Angharadz,
I tried to install on two different XP computers and one Vista, all were no go withe same message as you. I have the same message and issue as you here. Since I can't test this giveaway, I can't and won't buy it. I'm an XP user, and it still has a lot of life and usefulness left for me.
Clearly, this company has not bothered to fully field test their product to verify that it lives up to their claims. How hard or costly could that be? Give an intern a few old laptops from Goodwill, and say, "Here, try to install this on these antiques!"
Too bad! I wanted this one.

I don't remember if we provided that, but if so, then it's our mistake. Apologies. We do not support Windows XP nor Windows Vista.

Ayman,
What was the last of your versions that worked in XP ?
If any of us whom registered (received serial) today, installed that older version, would the serial work ?
Thanks,
Rob

Rob Down Under,
We never supported XP and Vista. They are no longer supported by Microsoft, and the libraries we use do not support them. Something totally out of our hands really (they are pretty old).
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Gia, too obvious to say create a new email address, if re-requesting a serial doesn't work? It's so easy to mistype ones address, for example.
i had no problem and others comment similarly... better than missing out on a programme you want :)

I have a question for people who have used Kotobee - when you create an ebook with this software, are you required to pay a fee for each ebook you publish? It looks that way, but just checking to verify. I've published many ebooks and books for myself and clients, so publishing through other platforms is no problem, but I'd like to test this option. Just want to know about any strings that are attached to get the finished product to the public :)

I regret to say when I try to install "Setup_win32" Norton Internet Security deducted W.S. Reputation.1 which got deleted automatically.

I do not know if I can install it or not?

This is a well designed product with a lot of functionality. I have upgraded my initial free offering from 2016 two times now with no issues.

If you're already a registered user your account should upgrade automatically using the original serial number. No need to reapply for another one.

Download, installation and registration worked just fine. Just make sure you follow the instructions, fill in all of the blanks. The email your receive with the serial number tells you exactly where to put it when the program opens. No need to register twice.

the registration process is too complicated, asked email, registration came, when entered asked to register it again, with a filling of forms which need the website, and company name, and when you leave a gap you are forced too, even after you have completed those things still can not register, it keeps stay on the same page without register!

Hmmm... how can we get a new serial for an already registered address?

I had the previous GOTD version of Kotobee (1.3.4), uninstalled and installed this one, but don't know how to renew.

Reply   |   Comment by TechSmurfy  –  7 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

TechSmurfy, You MUST use another (!!) email address (1 email = 1 license !!). I had (some time ago) the same problem - I use 3. (!!) email right now.

The other way is to write to Their support and they can delete Your current email (but I did not try it - I do not know, how long does it take).

I am confused about what is on offer. The offer page says "The program is available for $50.00, but it will be free for our visitors as a time-limited offer," but Kotobee's website says the price of the Basic version is $100 for "1 User - Lifetime." Commenter Bob wrote, "the license is for ONE month only!" So, can the developer or our friends at GOTD explain precisely what is on offer here? Many thanks.

Registration serial number arrived without delay. Entered it, clicked ok but program says timed out net connection lost.
This is not a problem at my end as network is clearly not lost. I have tried it three times.

Just having a try with this. Looks good in many ways but does not seem to have a spell checker which I think is pretty vital for a program like this. Unless I have missed it in which case can someone tell me where it is?

Have uninstalled the old version

Run CC Cleaner

And still it returns up my old now expired serial number without any way of adding the new serial number I now have today ...

Devious the way they imprint on your laptop

I do not usually comment and leave it up to the other guys but this is an exceptional giveaway so I am making an exception. It is a great ebook crafter with everything you need in as easy a format as possible given that there is a lot of depth to what goes into making an e-book. I got the last version they gave away and now this one and it has noticeable improvements, although unfortunately still no option to reverse the colors so its easier on the eyes when you are typing for a while(black background with white text is much easier on the eyes than the blue white background and black text). Aside from that very minor thing it is excellent and you'll be making your own E-book in no time.

As for the registration process, it wouldnt let me get a key with my email thye already had on file so I used my alternate email and it worked just fine.

if you're typing for awhile you could type in a text editor that does white on black or any other color, then copy & paste into this program for formatting & printing.. https://www.sublimetext.com/
another program for a work around, but it's a great text editor

Have an older version, so the registration site doesn't want to send me a new key.
Tried to update the old one, and that apparently invalidated its key.

Frustrating day

Reply   |   Comment by meerling  –  7 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+36)

I've found a workaround that works if you have gmail, I don't know if it'll work for non-gmail addresses.

Gmail will ignore a plus sign and what comes after it up to the at sign in the address.
For example, if your normal address is " johndoe14@gmail.com "
Then you could tell them it's " johndoe14+likesducks@gmail.com " and they'll accept it and it will go to your normal address.

It doesn't matter too much what you put between the plus + and the at @ but please try to avoid non standard characters as I haven't tested the bounds of what will work without issues. So leave off the symbols and anything you need to use character map or hold down the alt key for.

meerling,
Thanks a lot! You saved me!
After a whole night downloading and trying to find a solution, I was about giving up.
I wasted an old version too, because I stopped its serial number, so now it won't work unless I connect with their support and I will never do, because I'm angry now against them.
But you saved me! Thanks again.
