Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

Adding my name to the list of the people this is happening to. It was working fine after the update that fixed the original issue, then yesterday I started receiving the 3/6 month message. I'm running Windows 10 and my .Net framework is up to date. I don't have the skills to run all the stuff mentio...

Re: NaNo Scrivener code question

Just wanted to say thanks to Julia, who is indeed working her backside off to get out the updated Coupon codes. I got my updated code about 24 hours after sending the email and have been able to preorder my copy of Scrivener without a problem. I'm so excited. I can't wait until the full release. My ...

Re: NaNo Scrivener code question

I sent my email to support as instructed, since I only saved the old code and never knew a new code was posted, but I'm disappointed to hear that it will be a couple weeks before we get the new code. I was all set to purchase the first release of Scrivener the instant it comes out. Now I'm going to ...

Re: Making Scrivener compatible with speech recognition.

I'm not sure about Windows 7, since I'm using a Mac. But, I do use DragonDictate on the Mac. I sometimes have a few quibbles in “unsupported” text editors [i.e.: anything other than Dragon's notebook and Text Edit]. But, I just open up a text edit window or use Dragon's notebook and copy and paste ...

Making Scrivener compatible with speech recognition.

I don't use speech recognition software often, but I do use it sometimes when I'm struggling with carpal tunnel. I've thought about investing in Dragon Naturally speaking, but for now I just use the Windows 7 Speech recognition software. It works great in word and other programs, like yWriter but I ...

Re: CURRENT BETA DOWNLOAD (RELEASE 1.4)

After doing a complete uninstall of the old scrivener, including manual removal of all files and folders not removed by the uninstall process, and installing the new release, everything is working fine, including spell checking. At least for now. I'm frustrated though, because Scrivener still does n...

Re: .Net 3.5 Framework crashes Scrivener?

For me, once the .Net framework and the MyNovel program were installed, unistalling them didn't fix Scrivener. Even uninstalling and reinstalling Scrivener after the other things were removed wouldn't make it work again. It was as if the installation of one or the other made some change to my system...

.Net 3.5 Framework crashes Scrivener?

I have never been able to get Scrivener to work on my primary laptop, which has XP SP3 installed, is fully updated and has the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package installed. It gets an Unhandled Win 32 exception error and crashes every time I try to run it. Three days ago, I pulled out...

Re: Sometimes Won't Start Up [ADDITIONAL INFO]

I have windows XP, SP3 and I have not been able to use Scrivener at all yet. It will start up, but every time I try to create a new project, it crashes and I get those unhandled win32 exception errors.

Re: Can't create new projects

This is a known problem and they are working on finding a solution for it. I, too, have the same problem and am on Win XP, SP3 and have not been able to get Scrivener to work for me. If you do a search on the boards, there have been many suggestions for things to try. These solutions have worked for...

Re: Won't even start! Help meeeee!

Don't feel bad, eidolem. I'm going through the same thing. I use XP as well and, though I was able to get the program to install, I'm unable to create or open any projects, which makes the program unusable at this point. I've tried every suggestion I've seen on the boards here, fully updated my syst...

Re: Unable to Create or Open a project

I do have antivirus programs on both laptops. AVG Professional is installed on the laptop that can't create new projects and ZoneAlarm Pro on the laptop that can't install the program correctly at all.

Re: Unable to Create or Open a project

Ok, I pulled out my other laptop which also has Windows XP Professional service pack 3 installed. It's a pretty clean install and doesn't have many other programs installed on it since I don't use it much. After completing the Scrivener install I got this error: "This application failed to star...

Re: Unable to Create or Open a project

I'm just running Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3, v.3244 Build 2600 and don't have any special configurations that I know of. This computer is a little over 2 years old and has had plenty of things installed and uninstalled over time, so probably not as clean as it once was...
