Give Away of the Day Software

Post by David » 20 May 2015, 17:31

Hi
I would be obliged for some help about The Giveaway of the Day Software, of which I know some Forum Members receive notification.
I recently got a new computer, and although I can still download the daily software, if I want it, it doesn’t seem to open when I click on Setup.
Has anyone any advice as to how I might be able to open the software, or will there be something on my computer which may be stopping it.
Thank you in advance.
David

Hello David,

Assuming you have a Windows based computer - I can think of the following possibilities:

1) Your user account is not set-up as "administrator". This is sometimes needed so one can make changes to the computer, like installing new software.
2) You might have an anti-virus programme that blocks installations.

Just a couple of ideas - hope that helps.

Cheers, Roland

Hi Roland
Thank you for your prompt reply. How do I set up the computer as Administrator.

Hi Roland
I tried your second option by temporarily removing my antivirus programme and it then enabled me to download the software that I wanted. Thank you again for your prompt response and your help.
