Can't say if we can assist you on this one Lynclinprac, it's really between you and the manufacturer.
If the setup disc does not have a key printed onit or automatically regesters via the actual setup disc as some software hold the key in the setup disc installation.
 if there is no key on the envelope or case don't know how these people regester their products.
Did you get a guide with it?
reboot ?

Thank you any way Merete, packing slip included = no key. Reg via install pop up = no reponse. support@pxsoftware.co.uk as per sticker on case = no response.  Emailed company that sent advertsing re this product = no response.    Very annoying

Hello Merete, Just an update. re Powerslides

The templates will not open.. the message comes up 'Path not found'.
The background choices come up but whenI select any I read, run time error '76' or runtime error '440'.
Honestly I give up.
 I have emailed to 'Support@SummitsoftCorp.com <Support@SummitsoftCorp.com>'
again.

Thanking you Merete
The Software support came through... uninstall all... reinstall.............unsuccessful
2nd assistance from support =  download powerslides through a slightly different link, reinstall that and the upgrade 1.6 again.
Successful.

Lucky you having a fun break...............Thanks again for your help.
I am having a weekend break.. going to our ancient Tingle forest in S.Western Australia, in a small place called Wolpole. I will be photographing  and sketching trees etc for children's stories.
