Dear GOTD users,
please note that due to the Themida wrapper usage your installation might be blocked by your antivirus (AVG, Avast or Kaspersky)!

This will result in no program installed on your PC even if your antivirus reports no files are blocked.In order to install the program, you'll have to temporally disable your antivirus.

Helen, it won't install, even though I have no antivirus installed.

Thanks GOTD but even if that works it came a bit late for me. Perhaps the developer could have run it a few times first and included that in the read me file if that was found to be an issue. I am loathe to disable anti virus when installing a product I don't yet trust.

On Win 10 64 bit laptop, had the same problem : at first attempt > "Access violation", ... try 2nd time > shows "successful activation" (and offers of more software) but no installation, and same with the following attemps (Windows Defender off).
After I close all and restarted, then succeed to install !!!

After disabling antivirus, it still wouldn't install. Usually, that is enough with giveaways and their wrapper. So, I right-clicked on the Setup.exe and selected "Run as administrator." The installation then ran fine.

1. Disable antivirus
2. Right-click on Setup.exe and "Run as administrator"

That's what worked for me on Windows 10, 64-bit. Avast Free.

I had all the same problems installing this program on Win 10! However, as a last resort, I tried changing the 'Compatibility' properties of the 'setup.exe' file and it worked - NO Problems! It is now activated and works great!
I just 'Changed settings for all users': and checked the "Run this program as an admin" and changed the compatibility mode to run as "Windows 7"! and it worked !

Bumper01, That worked for me too. There is no need to check Run as Admin, as the installer run as Admin anyway.

I have Revo and also Cleanse Uninstaller Pro. This one has many nice features and it works well so I will keep it too. It's possible over time i miught drop the others if this one fills all my needs. I find that sometimes one app will do an action others won't.

Doesn't matter how I'm doing it but is impossible to install Smarty Uninstaller.I disabled Windows Defender (wasn't necessary anyway) and I tried numerous times. It's telling me that the software is activated and the I'm presented with option to install some other software from Gotd.So is not the antivirus.I have to leave and I am disappointed because I will not be able to return today to try again in case the problem will be fixed.

Reply   |   Comment by cos  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

cos, There's no need to be disappointed. Both Revo and IObit Uninstaller do a much better job of scanning for leftovers and they are both free.

Win 10 64 bit. No install. Tried it on my testbed win10 x64 WITHOUT any Defender or any antivirus at all.

Shows "successful activation" (and offers of more software) but the application never extracted or installed. Not going to debug why. But I'm let down by this GAOTD offering.

Reply   |   Comment by Conrad  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Dennis, having a punt here, look for any executables called setup.exe in the temp folder of the system or elsewhere as almost every giveaway has the installer renamed to setup.exe and if copies are left lying around in temporary folders it is possible those old executables can get used instead of the one you think you are going to run and cause inconcistencies that windows both causes and cannot deal with!
periodic cleaning of temporary folders in windows can be a good idea as windows and programs that use the temporary folders often do not clean up after themselves automatically!

To test this program, I decided to remove an older version of Quiling Disk Master. Smarty Uninstaller did a pretty good job of it, but it missed 2 Quiling's files in the Program Files. By the way, those two files did not appear in Smarty Uninstaller's "remnants" window at all, I guess, because of that miss.

Reply   |   Comment by Todd  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Todd,

Sorry, but my objective was to conduct a simple test of today's offer (on my windows 10 32 bit machine).

And in order to compare it with Revo, if I would have wanted to do so in the first place, I would have had to create a restore point before uninstalling Qiling Disk Master with Revo, perform an uninstall, then restore my system, and then test Smarty Uninstaller.

But again, my goal was to carry out a simple test of Smarty Uninstaller.

Cheers,

consuella

Reply   |   Comment by consuella  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

consuella,

O.K.
But if you wanted to know what I think of Revo in general, I'd like to say that I've been using Revo for a good number of years, and I am generally very pleased with it.

One has to be always careful with Revo, though, if one decides to use the advanced mode, because- as I have noticed- it sometimes brings out, for possible deletion, elements of some other programs of the same developer. And if one rushes to check off everything for deletion, one may screw up those other programs, and they will stop working.

"Move applications without reinstalling" - this seems to be a great feature. Recently, I bought a new computer with Win-10, but many valuable GAOTD programs are in my old Vista computer. It will be great if I can transfer those programs using a flash drive and then from the flash drive to the new computer.

The Smarty website "Features at a Glance" do not show this feature.

Can support@ Smarty pls advise if this is possible?

Many thanks.

drvajra,
I don't even have to install the program to give you an answer. Most all software uses the registry to hold it's settings. There will be no registry settings copied over, therefore your software will not work.

Reply   |   Comment by reghakr  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

reghakr, unless you export the registry settings and merge them with the new systems registry...

Also the moving process should also move the registry settings the program uses after all this is supposed to be smart enough to uninstall programs better than the standard uninstaller that comes with the program so why would it not spot the registry brannches the program uses to hold its settings!

Only times that could not work is if the license authorisation is tied to a hash of the machines hardware and operating system configuration so not transferable, or if the developer uses an encrypted license store on the system which is not so simple to manipulate.

When I try to install i get a quick pop-up telling me it's activated but doesn't actually install anything. I do not run Kaspersky, AVG or any of the aforementioned anti virus programs. In any case, I am highly suspect of any program that requires one to disable an anti virus before installing. Doesn't that defeat the purpose?

Reply   |   Comment by dMf  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

dMf, Doesn't hurt to disable AV to install a GAOtd app. Try it, if it doesn't work also try right-clicking setup.exe /properties to see if you need to uncheck blocking.

The move function says from one hard drive to another.
Does this mean I can move it from one computer to another?

It can't be done because no registry entries will be copied to the new Windows 7 machine.

reghakr, There are programs that will. I just asked if this was one. The success rate of several I know of are not perfect but they do write to the registry.

Reply   |   Comment by JD  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

JD, It just creates a short cut between drives called a Junction Point. I assume it relies on the registry of the initial drive

Was going to give this a try. WANTED to give this a try. Have been using Revo for years, the free version anyway and am totally happy with it except for one thing. Free Revo only works with 32 bit programs. I saw that this will work with both 32 and 64 bit so thought I would give it a shot. BUT, just try to find out something about this company. Endless loops back to itself at every turn. No address, nothing. Can't find out anything about them from Google/Bing either. This gives me great pause I must say. So, passing on this due to a very serious lack of transparency. Too bad.

Reply   |   Comment by indianacarnie  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+35)

indianacarnie, Revo Uninstaller Free has supported 64-bit since v.2.0 (August 04, 2016).
From Revo's website: "Revo Uninstaller Free is fully compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows Server".

Reply   |   Comment by sirpaul2  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

indianacarnie: If you're uncomfortable with this, there are plenty of alternatives around. I myself have Revo Uninstaller Pro, because I don't subscribe to the theory that freeware is always best-ware. Paying for something that's important to a computer's smooth running isn't money wasted, so long as you're careful about what you buy.

Amongst the umpteen freewares out there, 'Geek Uninstaller' has a great reputation and is of known provenance. It's free. It does not, however, monitor installs -- though to be honest, there've been several times when I've had to try to untangle a friend or relative's uninstall all because of a so-called 'monitored install' where monitoring included stuff that happened to be live on the PC at the time but didn't necessarily have anything at all to do with the software installation.

iObit seems to get good reviews for its uninstaller but that's not a developer I'd go anywhere near, based on past experience.

Revo Free does a good job -- and with x64, too, so don't be misled by out-of-date criticisms -- and is particularly good in ensuring that a restore point is created before anything else happens (not that Windows' restore points are to have 100% faith in, but even so . . .)

A routine search will find Geek Uninstaller.

sirpaul2, Lol, imagine that. I've been using it for so long I never even noticed. Don't pay attention when I install it anymore because I've used it for so long and with such excellent results I don't even bother looking, just install. Thanks for the update, I'm sorta embarrassed actually.

MikeR, Same as I said to Sirpaul2. I'll be sticking with Revo. I let my Pro version run out a while back because the Free version is all I really need. Same wit Ccleaner actually. And agree with you about IObit, I don't want anything from them NEAR my machine!

What does it do more than Revo Uninstaller? which is free for personal use

Reply   |   Comment by David  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

David, it has a few advantages over the free version of Revo. It has an installation monitor if you wish to use it. It keeps a history of uninstalls that it does. The above description claims it can "Move applications without reinstalling", but if it has such a function it is too well hidden for me to find it. But its main advantages are its "Advanced Details" option, and its list of "Broken" uninstallers where it gives you the option of "Select valid path" for the uninstaller. I haven't thoroughly checked my "Broken" list yet, but I know it has listed some of them correctly. There are others that I am pretty sure are ok, but won't know until I try to uninstall. Revo will only tell you about a "broken" uninstaller after you commence to uninstall and it creates a system restore point. Don't get me wrong, I like Revo but I can see where this may be better in some respects.
