I have an old version of Producer and a number of transition and effect packages. I'm surprised to see that there is no discount on upgrades at this late date. I was thinking about upgrading before discontinuation. Is this a good idea or what do you advise? My software is on an old computer and I need to update that as well. Can I transfer the software to a new operating system at a later date?

I won't be subscribing to Photobia Director (the only product that would interest me) as the subscription price is eye wateringly ridiculous.

Seriously? $250 a year for a single product which is not that special. Photobia have to be joking. I wouldn't pay more than $50 a year. Best thing ProShow supporters can do is nothing. Photobia need to get real regarding their pricing model. It's way out of the reach of the ordinary consumer, and let's be honest, I pay less than that for the complete Adobe Creative Cloud suite. There's just no comparison.

I believe that you can download all your software that you have purchased and save them for future installations. Just make sure that you save all the Registration codes to be able to unlock the ProShow program and any of the PS Transition Packs that you purchased.

If I am mistaken I sure someone on our site will be able to help clarify anything that is incorrect.

Hi everyone...It's been a long time since I've popped into the forum. We moved some years ago to a more remote location and I've not used Proshow for probably 6 years or so. Since then I've also purchase a newer computer but never reloaded the software and other Photodex purchases as our internet connection hadn't always been that great. Nevertheless I'd still like to try at least to get back what I've purchased.

Now that Photodex is shutting down, I've tried to access their website and Norton is giving me grief about that. I finally worked around the warnings to try the download but it stops the download. Is there a real concern over the exe file, or can I just shut Norton off temporarily to get the download and not worry about the files? I figure I could always apply a virus check once they are downloaded to a folder, yes?

Thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Debbie,
So very nice to see your name popping up here!
I don't know if there is anything wrong with their site or the exe. But, anything can happen on sites that are left unattended.
I can send you the exe, the problem is that I don't know if you'll ever receive the registration from them after payment. I saw a person complaining about this in another thread. So, I really don't know what to advise you in this case.
Kind regards,

Hi Mona!
Thanks so much for your reply.

I was able to access the necessary info regarding my previous purchases, registration keys, etc. But when I tap the download button, Norton stops me there. I can probably turn off Norton temporarily to successfully download all my purchases and such. I would put them in a seperate folder and virus check them before installing.

Do you think that would be safe to do it that way? It's not just the program but some style packs and transition pack. It seems to me that should work.

I'm not purchasing anything new, just would like to get back what I purchased over the years. It would be nice if it works with Windows 10 as that's what OS I have now.

Debbie,
Yes I think that your plan is safe.
No worries about Win 10. Everything works.
All my best,

Mona,

I turned off both Norton smart firewall and auto protect and then tried the download. The file download is still cancelled with a pop up at lower right corner that says says malicious download prevented.

Norton says there is a Trojan Gen problem with a ProShow Gold program file but that's not the file I'm downloading.

I think I need to try and get rid of the Norton Firefox browser add-on and/or try with another browser.

Debbie,
There are other good security add-ons for Firefox. Norton is NOT one of them.
I use Emsisoft Browser Security. I don't know how good it is, but it doesn't bother me, at least.
All the other good extensions take care of the adds, and privacy issues.
As a general Anti-Virus, you can use only what comes with Win 10, and you'll be OK.

I just used a song and YouTube will allow the vid but says copyright claim and it cannot be monetized. I will go back to using Digital Juice tunes I purchased....
