Chill, guys. I had no trouble with the activation code entry. You just shut the program down, and restart it. The code entry splash come up when you restart the program.

How do I override this WinRAR : Diagnostic message - Cannot execute "C:\DOCUME~1\User\LOCALS~1\Temp\Rar$EXa6284.20481\Setup.exe"
and be able to install the ZD Soft Screen Recorder in my Windows XP Pro desktop. And that it isn't a valid Win32 application (my PC is a X86; hence a 32 instead of a 64). I thank you for your input.

Is there a written documentation for the use of this software? I cannot see from the developer's page. How to make a full screen capture? How to save whatever setting that is current? How to draw and how to highlight the mouse/cursor? etc.

I just downloaded and tested ZD Soft Screen Recorder 11.1.10,
having previously used version 10.2.3 on December 27, 2016
(https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/zd-soft-screen-recorder/),
and must say that I prefer the old version's control module,
settings window, and capture box.

The old version had a capture box that showed the aspect
ratio at the top and allowed you to drag the box with your
cursor, but the new version doesn't seem to let you drag the
box.

I tried installing in such a way as to have both versions on
my PC, but each time, one overwrote the other instead of my
ending up with two versions, so I unistalled the new version
and went back to the old version.

Steven Feldman, I totally agree with you, the old version was much better... But what are batter in this, if you compare picture quality and sound, coz if that are same as the old version i think I will go back to that again... Coz I really love that version and it was easier to handle, the only thing I miss is that opportunity to rename the recording after the record are done, as it are now, you have to rename it for each recording otherwise it will overwrite the last record.

Installed and registered ok following the included instructions. Am unable to get it to capture any sound though, does not capture built in microphones or the default output device, mp3 files generated have no captured sound within them and the captured mp4 files reports the sound track as AAC bitrate 3kbps 32bit per sample and 44.1K samples per second, unknown language...

To me that seems wrong... Looked good to start with it is trying to use WASAPI under vista but on this laptop something is amiss the developer must try harder as there is no sound codec control interface for the video capture. And no way to confirm it is even connected to the correct hardware interfaces.

Works very well on Win 10 (64) video and sound quality are both excellent. I use 4 monitors and it will record on any one of them without any problems while allowing me to keep the control panel on my main monitor. Haven't tried out all the various options but what I've tried so far suits my needs, if the other untried options work then bonus. Thanks.

Have been using v. 10.2.3 since it was offered here and have found it stable and very useful although very slow loading. New version loads faster. Where's the "About" button?

Hey guys for those of you having trouble activating like I was it because you were doing same thing I was doing as I misread the instructions.
!st don't use your own email use the one given in the instructions just above the key code second make sure you input the Key code as given.
Also after installing the program if you have problems registering close the program restart then like you did the first time close it again and the register program window will pop up again.
After I did this I had no problems installing program and or registering it. Thanks GOTD you have done it again and we are grateful for it also to the company offering this program because without you to we wouldn't have this great site!!

OK, I'll so it must be obvious to anyone reading this that there is a problem with the activation under certain circumstances. You might get a few not getting it correct but it seems that for every one that activated OK there was someone who had problems. And we get it... you use there email Not yours

Hi - Installed very easily. Only had a quick play so far. Seems promising for video/games etc. I have yet to find out how to capture a scrolling window as a screenshot, & that's important for me. Also, looks as 'tho it doesn;t allow .pdf, so no OCR capability. Looks like a keeper for moving screens, but unless I can plug those gaps I'll have to use another tool for stills [SnagIt probably].

Good software.
No surprise, but fails to capture Amazon Prime streaming video - output is choppy, pixelated, or blank.
Other than that, excellent quality output.

Installed / Registered without a problem. (Click an option to record something then it takes you to the interface, from there you can register - or record something then there's a pop-up.)

Tested it on a game and was happy with the quality - as good as any other recording software I've used. The sound was perfectly in sync - and even more it captured the audio even when it was turned off (The PC was playing the audio, the speaker to play it to me was off.)

What makes this one better:

It had an intuitive interface - I loaded my game, selected game mode and it automatically found the exact edges around my game and recorded just that. This is not a feature I've seen before.

It has a variety of drawing tools that you can write on your recording as you go along - I tried that and works well, it's very cute actually - it shows a small pen drawing on the screen.

There are a lot of customisable options.

It stays in the corner of the screen and does not minimise to the task bar - so it remains accessible.

It has a screenshot mode that is really good for games - you can just click on the little camera as and when you want a screenshot and it automatically takes the screenshot and saves it as graphics files - you choose - .png / .jpg etc. When you're done the files are all there for you.

I'm impressed.

There is no activation code only the the giveaway@giveawayoftheday.com for registration in the readme file.

Exactly how do we obtain the activation code ?

Reply   |   Comment by Ken  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-9)

Ken, don't overthink this. Use your own name in the "Name field." In the "email field" use email@giveawayoftheday.com and in the "activation code" box use whatever activation code was in the read me file that you downloaded. It should be in the same folder as your .exe file.

After recording, this software calls home base, why, is there something we are not tolled?

Reply   |   Comment by Barry2  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Barry2,
sorry but could not find evidence for that, in fact it registers without I-net connection just follow the instructions in the readme. My firewall blocks all outgoing traffic and there's no indication the proggie was trying to so.
You may update without loosing your licence to the new version that's out now.

I have used this program for a couple of years now and it does a great job. It sits in the lower corner of the screen and you wouldn't even know it is there recording whatever is running on the screen.
I have never had a problem with this program and I would recommend it.

ZD Soft Screen Recorder was not a keeper for me. Here is what happened upon install.

1. The program installed fine but I had trouble with getting it to record the screen.
2. Upon recording the screen, the video of the screen recording would not play in my player, Windows Media Player.
3. The computer froze and I had to do a hard reboot.
4. Upon reboot my Internet connection would not connect for 4 to 5 minutes.
5. Once I finally connected, I uninstalled the program and found out it was coded by Shenzen Software - a Chinese Company.

This is not a keep for me, I hope you have better luck.

Win 7 Ultimate.

Gwen, FWIW, I use VLC Media Player. ZD worked for me: I used it to record videos from YouTube which could not be downloaded in the normal way. Also used it to record YouTube videos whose overlaid captions would be lost in a normal download.
