That's because "years ago", the major browsers stopped supporting the Presenter plug-in due to security issues.
Photodex never bothered to release an update or another browser viewer.
I opened the gallery in IE11 and selected the show I wanted to download. While it's playing I typed %tmp% in the search box which takes you to your AppData/Local/Temp folder. I selected the "Date Modified" column to sort by the newest files first.
Near, or at the top, is a file named "psgxxxx.tmp" where xxxx is some number. When the file size is close to the file size in the Gallery and doesn't change, you can right-click and drag and drop a copy of the file to a place of your choice. I usually just copy it to the desktop.
Once you have the file on your computer, change the extension to px, and rename the file to the same name as in your Gallery. If Presenter is associated with the px extension it should play your file fine.
If you are no longer able to reproduce a show and output to a more user friendly format, this is at least an option to let you have a record of shows you created. With a decent screen capture program you could copy it and export it in a more common format.
Reinstalled my Proshow 9 free upgrade on a reformatted hard drive with a fresh clean installation of windows today with no problems and that included a few paid for styles and effects packages plus all the free ones
It's one thing for a company to go out of business. Quite another for it to render its paid for product unusable. Maybe no one else has this problem and it's unique to me.
I do hope this gets sorted out. Like many people I have invested a considerable sum of money over the last twelve years of owning Producer and the thought of it all being useless makes me feel very sad.
Let’s hope for the best outcome whatever that may be.

It's reopened !!!
I've really enjoyed making hundreds of slideshows with ProShow and hope they stay alive somehow. Great product and great people. If it does go under, I hope it does so gracefully.
PS - Who would be the absolute best company to purchase Photodex?

is there anyone working still for Photodex? Last week on Mondy I sent a request to Photodex and have no feedback until to day.
Does anyone know what's going on?

Instead of wondering what Photodez is going to do, it would be useful to give him solutions or ideas to give a hand to promote the product. We are about 3000 Photodex members in this forum. But to do so, we must know the situation Photodex is in, for muself., I don't want Photodex goes out of business. I know we need money to run a business and have a cashflow to support the company, office, and all the persons working there. Waiting...
