|Q: I was using PSM and was happy with my Windows
98 400 MHz computer. Last week I purchased a new 1500 MHZ Compact
computer using Windows XP. With this computer, when I create a presentation
everything is fine but whenever I build an EXE stand alone application
or a screen saver it does not work anymore. The images are not shown
on screen (black screen) and the stand alone and screen saver do not
respond when I try to finish them using the ESCAPE command. Could
this be because PSM is not completely compatible with Windows XP ?
|A: I have to grieve you. The problem is not Windows
XP. PSM IS completely compatible with Windows XP. This program uses
3D hardware acceleration and requires 3DFX video card. Probably
your laptop does not have such video card. That is why this program
works too slowly. You should upgrade your computer in order PSM to
work properly. New programs require new hardware. Sad but truth.
|Q: I have trial version Pictures Slideshow Maker installed
on my computer. Do I get any additional features after registering
|A: Trial version has no limitations in its features. I would
say this is a full version and you get all implemented features. You
have 30 days term of using, advertisement in left top corner in created
presentations and nag-screen with registration reminder. All that
is automatically removed after registering. All projects created with
trial version are still available after registering. All you have
to do just rebuild them to remove our advertisment.
|Q: I lost my registration key. Do I have to pay for program
again or maybe I can get my key free ?
A: You do not have to pay again. Your key
will be sent to you free. If you lost your registration key or it
does not work with the current version of the program please use
feedback form. Please provide us with
1. Program name
2. Your full name
3. Your order ID
4. Your email address you used when you placed your order
|Q: I would like to know if I can burn my finished projects
to a CD to be played on a home DVD player. I tried burning one but
it was not recognized by my DVD player. My player has a 16x playback.
|A: If you mean DVD player that you use with TV but not a
computer, this slideshow will not work. DVD video player can not recognize
computer files. The program makes executable file to be played on
the computer. No matter where your slideshow is located, on CD, DVD,
|Q: I created a presentation as EXE and SCR file and wish
to send it to my friends. I would know if any additional files or
libraries are required to make sure they can watch my slideshow properly.
|A: No any additional files or libraries are required. You
may send them one executable or screensaver file. Nothing else.
|Q: What is limitation for number of slides in my presentation
|A: The number of pictures or music files is not limited.
But slideshow executable file can not be larger than 4Gb. It is much
|Q: I tested a sample slideshow I created and was very pleased
with the results. Before purchasing, I wanted to make sure it worked
on other computers besides the one I created it on, so I saved the
show to Zipdisk. When I put it in my other computer, it played, but
when it was in transition to the next photo frame, it was very slow
and fractured. I do not want to purchase your software until I know
it works properly on all computers it may be played on. I created
it on a Dell Inspiron 8200 with Pentium 4, and played it on a secondary
computer, a Compaq Presario 5140 with Pentium 2. Could you tell me
what the problem might be?
|A: I quess the problem is video card. This program uses hardware
3D accelerator. Probably your Pentium 4 has 3DFX video card and Pentium
2 has not any. Anyway if computer has no such accelerator all this
work is performing by central processor. Besides Pentium 4 much faster
than Pentium 2 is. If you are looking for a good slideshow that works
properly on OLD computers you waste your time. Before I began to work
on this program I have tested a lot of slideshow creators. I did not
see any program that works properly even on Pentium 4 with 3D accelerator
because these programs DO NOT use this 3D accelerator. In other words,
this program require 3D video card. And it will work properly even
on Pentium 200 MMX if it has 3D video card like GeForce or something
like that. New programs use new technologies and require new hardware.
|Q: I mad of digital photo and made with your program Pictures
Slideshow Maker a lot of presentations and screensavers (These are
my wife, my son and daughter, my dog and my town etc). Now, I want
to upload these ones to my site to make my friends able to download
them. Can I do it ?
|A: Yes, of course. You can distribute your presentations
by email, Internet, CD-ROM and DVD disks. And what is more, you can
sell your presentation and earn money. You can promote some goods
and services. You do not need any confirmation. You even do not need
to be registered user to distribute your presentations. Although,
in this case, you will see our advertisement in your presentations.
