SteelerDirtFreak:
"I have confirmed with Notesholder that this IS a TRIAL version."

It would now seem that you are a liar as well. I contacted them, and here's their reply:

"NotesHolder has a trial version, but you can register it for free with "activate" software from giveawayoftheday.com. After the activation NotesHolder is not time/feature limited, this is a FULL version, so you can use it as long as you want."

See, full version? What was your original statement again? Right: "This is only the free trial version that is always available from Notesholder."

"Perhaps YOU should get YOUR facts straight before exposing yourself as a dingbat."

Haha. Whatever, dude.

Activate.exe does not work through a proxy server so I could not register the software. Maybe giveawayoftheday developers could extend it to cater for proxy servers (i.e. no direct internet connection)

Several of the activate.exe files HAVE contained registration keys, this one does not. I have confirmed with Notesholder that this IS a TRIAL version. Perhaps YOU should get YOUR facts straight before exposing yourself as a dingbat.

QUOTED from "Ben", Comment #26:
"Unzip the package you`ve downloaded and install the software, then run the activation program activate.exe which is included in the package.
I do not see any “activation program… activate.exe”"

Ben, exactly where are you looking for the activate.exe file? You will not find it IN the program you downloaded and installed. It's included in the ZIP FILE that you first downloaded. Go to where ever you downloaded and then unzipped the zip file, go to that folder on your hard drive. See the file named "activate.exe" in that folder? Double-click on that file to register the program. It's that simple.

Why won't my Notesholder activate? I tried to activate it in the time period and it says it was activated. However, when I looked in the "About". it said "Evaluation Copy" after activation.

Seems a neat and adaptable UI, unobtrusive in operation... or rather when idling. The relatively clean lines should keep the GDI usage requiremnts low for win9x systems.

For those new to giveawayoftheday... Activate.exe or in other cases Activate and setup.exe incorporates reading a cryptographic hash from the givawayoftheday webserver, and only if it gets the hash, does it then manage to generate/decrypt and install the the legitimate key for the individual application.

If you do not have internet access then Activate.exe will fail as it cannot decrypt the key and cannot check with the server to determine if the system clock is being honest or not.

It's the only current way they can determine reliably if it is the right day of the giveaway, which is all they are liscensed to give away the key on.

Handy little program - thanks!

One point about activating: if you already NotesHolder running when you activate using Activate.exe, NotesHolder's "Register" option does still say that the activation key is invalid (or something). Ignore that. If you exit the program, then restart it, you will see that the "Register" option is now gone and you have the full version with no nag-screen, etc.

@28

Activate.exe is NOT supposed to include a registration key -- think of it more as a patch to register the program for you during the alotted time. Afterwards, it no longer functions which is why it's the "Giveaway of the Day" and not the "Giveaway of the Week/Month/Year" or what have you.

This is a full, registered working version of NotesHolder (and I tested it myself -- quite a handy little program!). You should probably get your facts straight before you MISLEAD other users of the site.

This is not a trial program. If you install the program and then run the activate.exe program which you'll find in the original zip file you downloaded you will see that this is full version software.

I haven't had a chance to play around with this yet but it looks like an handy little utility that I will get a lot of use out of.

Thanks for another useful piece of free software!

My copy got registered and is now licensed to me (or to giveawayoftheday, really). It's not a trial, and it's not the lite version. Those of you who can't get it registered are simply doing something wrong. Can't say I understand how that possible though. The download contains three files, all with simple descriptive names. How hard can it get? (Well, actually I want to direct that grumpyness only to people who make assumptions, and not those who politely ask for direction. Also, granted the downloads have been defective occasionally, but always been corrected quickly.)

Nice program. Not sure I need it though since I've alreayd paid for a couple of similar programs.

Ben,

if you would look instead of posting so much, you would EASILY see the activate.exe program. Just unzip. There are only three files(usually) that are in the zip file: activate.exe, setup.exe, and readme.txt.

I usually just unzip it, run activate.exe first, then run the setup.exe.
That works fine for me everytime.

This is not shareware, it is the full version.

Although I think I'll stick with Stickies(www.zhornsoftware.co.uk). It's ALWAYS free, so I don't have to worry about the program when I move to a new PC.

Answers:

Question: Can this program be installed tomorrow or any other day? What if I reformat my hard drive?

Answer: No, and No. This is the "Giveaway of the Day". You have the rest of TODAY and TODAY ONLY to install this program, and if you reformat your hard drive, you will see that the Activate program does NOT work after the giveaway time has expired.

Question: This is just a trial program! It keeps telling me it's going to expire in (XX) days or (XX) hours! What's up with that?

Answer: These programs are FULL, REGISTERED versions, NOT trials. You must run the Activate program during the Giveaway day to register them (or see other instructions in some cases). Once that's done, you are running a fully operational commercial product with no expiration!

Question: Some of these programs are lame! Why should I bother?

Answer: Come back tomorrow -- If you keep coming back you'll surely find at least one program that'll ROCK your WORLD. I know I have.

Thanks giveaway! You've really improved my computing fun level!

Sound to be a nice software, thanks to the giveaway's team.
No problem for me to activate it.
But each time my PC is on the screen saver mode, I got an error message: "A Win32 API function failed"
Anyone has the same trouble?
Any bug?

Thanks for the giveaway.

Suggestion: A picture speaks a thousand words. Perhaps you can provide screenshots (at least 1?) for the software that you are showcasing?

Or is it purposely left out so that we'll click on the publisher's page to check it out? It works. I have been doing that. :)

And yet another useful program you've given me. This will probably be one of those I'll pay for once I've formatted my system, which wont be until I've played out some of the games you've given such as Arkanoid: The Virtual World, which is one of the better games you've given.
Thankyou for everything.....

Although there are much more variants of such programs (also for free), I like this one, because there are many settings. Within the options you can choose many languages, there is an alarm function etc.
