Registered gPhotoShow v6.01 giving unregistered error

Post by Shannon » Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:44 pm

Have created a stand-alone scr file and deployed to machines.
Some machines are returning an error stating "This screen saver has been created with gPhotoSho Pro" and the title of the pop-up msg box states "Created with unregistered gPhotoShow Pro" even though the scr file was created with the full purchased copy of the software. Image attached.

Any ideas?

The most common cause of this issue is the configuration file, you must load and save it again with the registered version of gPhotoShow Pro. After the gss file is saves you can create the standalone screen saver and it should display the warning any longer.
Another possible cause is the inability to save the configuration file included in the executable in a temporary folder. In this case the warning window is displayed but then probably the screen saver is also unable to display pictures.

I have exactly the same problem with 7.4.9 but your explanation does not clarify the corrective action.

The program shows itself to be fully registered and I have followed the steps in the standalone screensaver video, except for using an installer.

Please restate the complete process of creating a standalone screensaver.

Some additional information and a solution. Try putting the screen saver in a folder on the desktop and see if it runs from there. If so, copy it to c"\Windows, not c:\WIndows\System32. In a post by gub, he/she points this out and it works. Apparently, it matters of the OS is 64 bit vs 32 bit.

Screen savers should be deployed using the installer created by gPhotoShow, it will take care of copying the .scr file in the correct folder and to include a needed DirectX dll
Simply copying the .scr file to windows folder may not work.
