Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Most of my time in IThas been with Win and apart from embedded systems, Windows is used in pretty much the same way as MacOS.

It would not mean the end of Windows. That is the weakest excuse for inaction you’ll ever find.

Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

I’d be confident the app would never be free, just like the iOS version isn’t. The developer/s have to earn a living and in a niche market such as this giving a freebie to possibly get another sale is risky at best. That is one of the issues that has been raised on this and other similar threads her...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Actually they can break that, simply by announcing on x date we are moving to.... Win 95 is no longer supported but systems are out there running it. The same would be true if they abandon 32 bit. Some legacy systems would remain but the market at large would move on. I am aware of quite a number of...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Devinganger, there are a number of companies who use nothing but Mac as servers, with rooms full of them in fact an amber of hosting companies use them exclusively. In my 36+ years in IT (pissing contest) I have and continue to see hundreds of companies outside of creative that use Mac product every...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

We’ll agree to disagree on that. As someone who has lived through the development of 16, 32 and 64 bit Windows (including the abomination that was Win 1.0 ) and the resultant bloat of backward compatibility I stand by my original comments. Apple has managed to cut off backward compatibility a number...

Re: iOS Update?

Can you be a little more specific.

You haven’t updated the iOS operating system since buying? What version are you on?

What are you trying to do when you get the iTunes Synch issue?

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

I do not have anything in the system or software that would "affect the functionality of the software". Software is Scrivener, and it has worked without problem for two years. I have not made any kind of contract with that licensing company that has made a mess. devinganger is speaking of...

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

If the license makes it non-working through wine, that's an abomination. And really, if I have paid for a program I expect to have no hassle after that, requiring me to try to update this and that FOR LICENSE. You paid for a licence for it to work on Windows, not WINE. You have every right to expec...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

running 32 bit software does not require "32 bit code and drivers". It requires the win32 subsystem which has been stable and not requiring any active maintenance for decades now. MS will not "get moving on" anything. That would kill off Windows once and for all, for one. And se...

Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

Lies, damned lies and statistics. Yes Android has a far greater market share as does Win in PC, but that ignores reality. The vast (really vast) majority of the Android market is low end where people just want a phone and to play a few games, or in tablets, games and consumption. The end of the mark...

Re: Error: A connection to the licensing server could not be established

I too am having this problem, mine saying it has been two months since connection and it is reverting to trial mode. This complicates things because I cannot now close my project. It wants to back it up and always simply shuts down after a slow climb to 55% of the backup. Reinstalling does not help...

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

I sent a ticket and got the most unhelpful automatic message. If a program stops working because of a misconfigured LICENSE, that is plain criminal. Program is intentionally broken to not work. For paying customers The information of what happened is in this thread. I do not wish to spend more of m...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

But note one thing; version 3 is 64-bit and installs in the ‘Program Files’ library, whereas version 1 is 32-bit installed normally in the ‘Program Files (x86)’ library, so be careful if you are using a 32-bit Windows PC still, as there might be a conflict in that situation! But congratulations to ...

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

Go look again. my original comment that you injected yourself into was in response to someone else threatening to go elsewhere, threatening to damage L&L business etc.

You seem to get bent out of shape at the least, so I'll leave it at that.
