PAFree - Installation / Setup



  • Just installed 11.63.11 to see what it is like :p

    Install Configuration preselected Classic View - but it is described as Classic with Preview.
    But the Preview is disabled in “Free Mode”.

    Shell extensions still allows selection of the burner options (although they do not appear in actual shell menus).

    While not really bugs - these may cause some confusion to new users.



  • By the way - the Trial Pay “advert” doesn’t fit in the pane, lower line(s) of text missing unless it is really expanded !


  • conexware

    send us screenshot of trialpay… thanks for the classic view with preview part, missed that one ;-).

    and?



  • Seems to be a text formatting problem.

  • conexware

    closing and starting it again… works now?



  • Not consistent.
    On first display it may be OK but then displays wrong after a while. Problem can be “provoked” by resizing whole PA window (especially horizontally).


  • conexware

    yeah, noticed that myself… we will take an look while we are doing next update.



  • Can I download the PA 2010 v11.63 free version and use the existing PA 2010 Pro Key to update to PA 2010 Pro v11.63?

    Hi Keith, mine did. I installed over the top of my existing version, and it recognised my licence. 🙂



  • Is there a real reason to download & install the free version? When I’m already running the Latest Pro Version?

    at least according to PA’S Web Update

    there is slightly real reason ;-). Few minor things were updated.

    Keep in mind that it will recognize license and also that it will also correctly web update to any future Pro version as well ;-).



  • Hi, may I know when do you plan to update the main download website with the latest 11.63 version? By the way, could you please make separate installers (Pro & Free)?

    Thanks in advance.


  • conexware

    you can use that version, it will work fine.

    We plan to issue beta version of 11.xx official release.

    why do you need separate installers? (just asking).

    thanks!



  • Just because a practical matter; I mean, seeing the size of the previous “Pro only” version and comparing it with the size of the latest “all in one”, the difference is noticeable. But that’s not all because, why a determined user who only want the “free” version of your program, would wanna download the “Pro” version at the same time?

    As with many others diverse programs, if you have a free “lite” alternative of the program, you should offer it just like that. At the same time, all the other people who knows the additional features included in the Pro version and wanna try them, will have to download just the trialware of that “Pro only” package.

    This is similar to a hypothetical x86-x64 versions distribution: why a determined user with a x86 architecture and os, would want to download an “all in one” x86-x64 combined package or vice versa?

    Of course there will be users that will not mind about all these, but I think regarding options, the more the better.


  • conexware

    I think we will keep Free version as it is now - where it is easier to see Pro version features even in Free version. It is also helpful to us to maintain single executable.


  • conexware

    (of course there will be always an Pro version with minimum size, even if that wont matter too much as next versions will have better web update that only downloads patches).


  • conexware

    it should be fine now in .12 release.



  • @spwolf:

    it should be fine now in .12 release.

    No web update (free) 😕

  • So I guess “web update” is just - not yet :p

    Fixed.

    No change - but so minor probably not worth making code changes for.
