Update: The developer has confirmed this is a mistake and has now removed it so this freebie is no longer valid.
As I am sure most, if not all, of us know, Wise Disk Cleaner Professional is being offered for free today on GOTD. Similarly, I am sure most, if not all, of us know that I write reviews for GOTD software. Well in the process of writing my review for Wise Disk Cleaner Professional I realized that there is a way to get Wise Disk Cleaner Professional for free without GOTD-related restrictions! (For those that don’t know what Wise Disk Cleaner Professional does or never heard about it, refer to my full review to learn more.)
You see I went to download Wise Disk Cleaner Professional off the developer’s website so I could test it (re-test it actually since I reviewed Wise Disk Cleaner Professional a year ago). By luck I decided to download the portable version instead of the installer version. After downloading and unzipping the portable version, to my great surprise I noticed that the portable version came with a text file (active_code.txt) that included registration information:
I tested out the registration information and it is valid and works. It definitely works for the portable version and I believe it also works for the installer version. According to the “About” window, it is valid until 4/22/2010 so I assume everyone will be eligible for free updates until then.
I don’t know what is up with this, if it is intended or a mistake, so I have notified the developer about this. If it is a mistake, it will be fixed. If it is for real… well, enjoy. Regardless of its status, I figure it is a legitimate freebie so I may as well post about it.
So, if you want to grab Wise Disk Cleaner Professional for free, you can either grab it from GOTD, or download the portable version and grab the registration information (look for active_code.txt). You can download Wise Disk Cleaner Professional from the following links:
