PM 4.6 demo expired????
« on: April 01, 2009, 06:52:38 AM »
Hi - I am using the demo of 4.6 - it expires today. This morning I opened it and it was all working fine. Have spent 5 hours rating photos, and now I can't drag and drop my rated pics into another folder. I also can't rename them. Could the demo have expired while I was using it, and this is the reason? If I shut it down and purchase real copy(which I do want to do), will it remember all the colour coding I have already done on this set of pictures?
In a panic - thanks in advance
Guy
Sorry - using 10.5.6 4gb ram

Guy,

Hi - I am using the demo of 4.6 - it expires today. This morning I opened it and it was all working fine. Have spent 5 hours rating photos, and now I can't drag and drop my rated pics into another folder. I also can't rename them. Could the demo have expired while I was using it, and this is the reason?

The 4.6 release version has some bugs in it.  We are working on the 4.6.1 update now to address those bugs.  You can download the 4.6.1 beta version from the Announcements section of the forums.  If you apply for another demo password, you'll get a one week extension, so use it with the 4.6.1 beta version.  Please let me know if it solves your issues.

Thanks Kirk - that has solved it - and after downloading the beta version it has still remembered the colour coding from before. Thankyou.

We released the new beta several days before the previous ones expired.  As for getting PM to mark the date of a demo password expiration in any number of calendar programs...  I think our time would be better spent elsewhere. ;)

I use 4.6.1 demo and it seems to be expired. It says I have 4 days to have the tiral code to expire but the Beta itself has expired it seems. And I don't see any expiration date in the announcement of 4.6.1.
I hope to have a solution soon.....and I really love to use PM.

I have the 4.6.1 and it has expires in Iceland. I am on a basketball match and this is a bad time. Is there a new update?

I just installed it over with PM 4.6.1 beta 4 but it says the demo code I received from Camera Bits is allready expired despite your letter says it will expire April 7 (but I received it on April 6 so it is strange as well). I sent a mail reply anyway.
