Ran the exe.file it opened then it said close it to run activate exe I was informed it was successful but the program upon opening did not have a serial number and was only a trial version! I am confused!

Installed on Win10 Home 64 without a hitch. Deactivated Zemana Antilogger for install (Bitdefender didn't interfere and needed no attention.) Just remember to run the Activate program after you've expanded it so it reads ".exe". Thank you!! GOTD!!

Downloaded fine using Chrome. Installed without having to disable antivirus. I had read comments so unchecked the "open now" option at the end of installation. Ran the activate.exe and registered fine. Looks interesting. Won't use it every day but handy to have.

When I downloaded, unzipped and operated setup it said this was the demo version which leaves a watermark. To remove this I must buy.
I ignored this, made sure the programme was turned off (also the AV) and pressed activate.exe. It then appeared, said it was successfully activated, nothing about registration.
Have I got the watermark-demo version or the correct thing?

The setup doesn't work at all to install program. The setup.gcd file is useless! How can I install this program????? I would like to have it but it just doesn't work. The setup file wants to install software informer and not the program after it checks to make sure that its available. Software shouldn't be allowed to be placed here unless it can actually be installed!

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

Philip John Bruch, there is NO setup.gcd file in the giveaway zip bundle it is an Activate.GCD file used with the Activate.exe file to Activate the license for the giveaway. The Setup.exe is JUST the normal setup program no themidia wrapper and no invitation to install software informer... you apear to be confused!

Don't forget to read the README.TXT file (NOT JUST THE FIRST LINE)

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

Philip John Bruch,
You should use the setup file to install the program, if it doesn't work it may be corrupted, then you should re-download it or download the setup file from RonyaSoft site.
After installing the program you should use Activation.exe while Activation.gcd is in the same folder, to have a successful activation.

Hi

I've just installed and activated the software (Win10 Home 16bit). Although the software appears to have been activated correctly (checked via the Help>About menu) when I was installing it displayed an error ('An error occurred while installing fonts!') right at the end of the installation process.

I tried the installation process more than once and the same problem occurred each time. After displaying the installation process details, the error appeared during the 'Execute: "C:\........\FontInstaller.exe" "inst....' step.

Does anyone know (particularly the developer if you're reading this) what causes this problem, if something hasn't installed correctly, or if it is a 'known' problem (i.e. an incorrectly displayed error message) but it has installed correctly?

If it is a problem with the installation files or process (i.e. some files may be missing, corrupted, etc), please advise how to correct.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best wishes

Mike

It is an easier to use program for creating posters than say Microsoft Publisher... It does have some limitations because it produces and uses raster graphics so gets bogged down memory wise with large banners or posters beyond certain limits which one has to design the banner or poster to be scaled up by the professional printers. Microsoft Publisher does not have that problem for the sizes of banner I used it for.

It is usable if you have a need for creating this kind of media. It can save as PDF files as well as JPG for use in other programs but no lossless save as option like LZW TIF files maybe they'll add that down the line.

Would be helpful if Ronyasoft representative could tell us what is different in this new installer build as the version history does not show build number changes. https://www.ronyasoft.com/products/poster-forge/help/version_history.html

This is an entirely rebuilt installer with contents dated 2019-01-05 and similarly digitally signed so is not a simple re-run. previous giveaway was 2.03.2.2 while this is 2.03.21.1 so IS a more recent version it is NOT a typode 2.03.2.1. It did pick up the previous giveaways activation data so may not need running activate.exe if you have installed the previous giveaway version before.

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

TK, You had to run Activate.exe
This version has some bug fixes, a lot of new fonts and templates.

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

RonyaSoft, nope I did not have to run Activate.exe this time as it used the Giveawayoftheday 2 registration information not the Giveawayoftheday 3 registration that this ones activate.exe/gcd provides.

It is good to know that these build changes are the result of true development work and are not just rebuilds to make a product look current and actively developped. May I suggest you include these subversion builds in your version history to prove dev work has happened as the lack of inclusion left many feeling they were getting 2016 version software.
Even more optimally list the bugs fixed so if we experienced those bugs we know they are addressed in the latest build :)

RonyaSoft, don't you just love it when computer programs do things they are not supposed to do.. still shows registered to GiveAwayOfTheDay2 in this giveaways About box. on both vista and windows 10 machines. I told them they were being naughty in accepting the old giveaways license data but they don't care and refuse to do as they are suposed to... what more can I do as the giveaway is now over and I cannot apply the new license data as I never ran this giveaways Activate.exe ho hum don't be upset, stuff happens, I am not complaining, just reporting what is happening :)

It won't activate in a virtual pc (vmware) environment.
Any solutions?

pet,
Not sure about Vmware, but after reading your post, I started THIS Win 7 64bit PC installed in Virtualbox and installed the program according to instructions in the readme file. After running the activate file, it successfully did so like it did on the Win 10 laptop.

Reply   |   Comment by xprt007  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

pet, "virtual pc (vmware) environment."
Can this VM contact the internet?
Because Themida needs contact with the GOTD-server to check the date etc.

Thank you all for answering, though the offer is expired by now.
The virtual pc [win7x86] can access the net, but the activation failed.
Some quirk of the IT gods...

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

pet, could be Themidia anti-reverse engineering blocking certain types of virtualisation as used by code investigation environments... without in depth knowledge of the propietary code and far to much work it is practically impossible for us outsiders to know.

At one point the Themida software used to compain about detecting debugging software and refused to work .... nowadays that alert box does not apear but a similar less sensative check may be present and silently abort decrypting the .GCD payload. And so the Anti-malware software gets blamed but in reality the Themidia code is likely silently avoiding the decryption just in case someone is trying to reverse engineer the decryption and extract the decrypted installer. (pure speculation here, not actively tried to reverse engineer the exe/gcd wrapper as normally there is no need as one can normally rebuild alternative installers with a tiny bit of thought.)

When Chrome blocked the download, I went to the "other options" icon and clicked it, then selected the option to open the Downloads directory. There, it gave me the option "Keep File Anyway". So I clicked that, and the "are you sure?" that came after, and then I was in business. Opened the file in WinRAR, ran Setup, ran Activate and it all works.

William J., since the downloads occour from different virtual servers files1. files2. files3. etc to share the load it could be that only one or two of those server subdomains have been reported as containing dangerous downloads to the chrome download screening service. You probably got lucky and got the file from one of the download servers that has not been reported for serving damaging files.

How is this different from the free software available on their website?

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

Craig, it's an OLDER version...2016...see Nigel's comment.

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

Bugs, this is the SAME version that is on their website, same build date too SEE THE WEBSITE and the file!

https://www.ronyasoft.com/products/poster-forge/download.html

It is different because the Activate.exe/gcd bundle registers it while the one on the website is free download but is unregistered and has certain restrictions that this one once activated does not have.

The Version History page is seriously lagging behind development by not enumerating the different builds that have been produced since 2016.

Nigels comment says NOTHING about this build but just the stagnant version history page!

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

Bugs, Actually no it isn't an older version..the "free" 1 on the developer's website is an unlimited time demo version that applies watermarks.

Easy to use, fun program, the activation process was easy, as long as people actually read the readme file. The rule of the thumb is always read and follow the readme file before installing any giveaway programs. For those who still wont read it, here it is: Unzip the package you've downloaded and install the software by running Setup.exe,
then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy.
Please make sure the program is -->closed<--, while you run Activate.exe.

I downloaded the software, read the readme file, ran the Setup.exe and it installed.
I closed down the program like it said in the readme and ran Activate.exe and when I re-opened the program it was registered to Giveawayoftheday3.
Thanks, it runs fine and I have Malwarebytes and windows defender running on my laptop all the while that I was installing it.
No problem whatsoever.

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

Nas,
Installation

Unzip the package you've downloaded and install the software by running Setup.exe,
Shut down the program.
then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy.

Please make sure the program is closed, while you run Activate.exe.
You have to install it before the Giveaway offer for the software is over.

Downloaded & installed. Ran activate.exe but program is asking for registration # that was sent to my email. Problem is there was no place to enter my email to get registration #. Only requested an email to get download link and that email has no registration #. GOTD needs to checkout these giveaways better.

DeltaVee, try restarting your computer and running activate.exe after the restart. That's what I had to do to activate the program and stop the registration message appearing.

A couple of years ago, I installed this software but lost it through a fresh install of Windows. A subsequent request to the publisher to help me reactivate was rejected, also some feature request or 2 to help improve it then.
Anyway, it was good for poster making tests I made then, but if it's really a version from 2016 as a reader below says, it'd be good if it were a more recent.

Chrome blocked the download, but if I recall the last time, all the templates were US-oriented and almost no use at all in the UK. So I'll not open Firefox to try it again.

Iain, I agree and fully sympathise about the templates. But you do not have to use them, you can create from scratch, I checked this, otherwise I would have uninstalled it for the same reason.
I am not sure but it is possible that the templates can be modified. Anyway they give you ideas.

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

Iain, It is more than likely that giveawayoftheday.com is getting itself some bad reports on some of the programs they have been providing and users that get upset at how GAOTD team and moderators are handling the problems and comments that they are flagging downloaded zip bundles as potentially unsafe downloads. It is very unlikely to be giveaway file specific as the files change every day so must be the site growning themselves an unhealthy reputation!
