Hello

What do you mean that the license is for trial? If there is shown license owner instead of count down, the software is a full version.

Best Regards

Sounds right, Let It Be.

I opened the license file & it matched what was “registered” on the software.

Hey Bob, you seem to have the same License number as I do. I guess all of us that downloaded here may have the same License number. I had emailed Macecraft in reference to the problem with the License a few days ago & I did not recieve a response. If it expires soon I will go back to the Free version JV16.

This seems to be more like a 60 day “license” or a trial license. Can anyone help on this?

If it works out as good as it looks, it may well replace several other installed apps.

TipRadar says: ” Giveaway ended. Thank you.”

When trying to re-download I get the message that there is nothing to download.

I am about to give up of the ‘free’ sites because this seems to be continously happening now that so many sites have gotten into the rage.

I am also in the 72 hour frame per the posted date (Free jv16 Powertools v2010! [72 hours only!]

Still isn’t registered! Maybe I’ll try uninstalling it then reinstall. It is a great program–hope I can get it to work. 2009 registered with no problems. I uninstalled it before installing 2010 version.

To all having problems. be sure to unzip the xml file to your desktop. Keeping it in the zip file won’t work.
Then it’s detected during set-up.

OR install jv16 first and put the lic-file into the jv16-folder and restart the app. (not the pc (-;)
by the way, tks for that great little thing!

Here’s what comes up when I looked under “Help”, “License Tool”:

I tried looking for a new license, directing it to the license file on the desktop, but still not registered. Now what?

After you extract it? If not you need put on Desktop open program then it should work. I did no issue. I also used System Mechanic that another great program been using for years. But two programs wouldn’t hurt would it :)?

Hey, ‘r you the Mike from down under??!
There are a few *mikes* around, I keep getting confused which is which :(
Grey cells having fun playing tricks on me! :D
And, are you the same Mike that wrote that CapsLock prog that Ash posted a few months back?

Really considering starting a note pad referencing names«»notes, so I dont make a fool of myself – anymore then usual I mean!! ArkArkArk

Be back 2morrow see if you are you *or* someone else :D :D

Ciao

NB:
You seem to know quite a bit about this jv16PT critter.
I’m going to study it for a bit, see if I get the hang of it.
I’m sure I’ll have a few questions, if you dont mind.

Many thanks for your reply!!
I’ll do as you suggest ;)
And then put it back into the dwld folder w all the other Info/Screenshots/Links/Tutorials/…
I’m a compulsive organizer, and even more as I get older, as most times can no longer remember what is what & where is it !! Confusion sets in fast … *sigh*

******************************
Hi MikeR :D
I was going to install this on the nw PC, instead of what I usually use iObit Advanced SystemCare3.
Guessing this is what you meant by Chinese knock-off outfit (after all that méli-mélo w Malwarebytes), right? Never felt right after that continuing to use it, just waited for the 1Y license to expire b4 removing it.

So, what you are saying is this tool does similar tasks but is much better/safer.
I dont want an over complicated thingy w a thousand options I wont use.
As I said too old & too newbie at same time, dont want to feel overwhelmed by all these new tools.
So muck to learn, never enough time …

Peace

Prior to that, I’d been running this app in its freeware guise, before its creators quite rightly set up Macecraft in order to go commercial and get something back for their many years of effort. (And yes, I am a donor since the freeware days.)

The Bild offer allowed users free updates, so the version available today is exactly the same as the one I’ve been using throughout 2010. Based on that usage, I can only recommend it wholeheartedly. It’s not a shallow gimmick-filled app but one which has been carefully refined over a long period. It’s from a European developer of provenance rather than some Chinese knock-off outfit. The care that has gone into its develop0ment is evident in the care it takes with a user’s computer, and especially in the way it constantly errs on the side of safety rather than indulging in crazily aggressive behaviour which may produce spectacularly high “results” but also spectacularly kethal consequences.

I’ve used all the so-called Swiss Knife apps. jvPowerTools is still the only one never to have caused a problem, never to have let me down, and as tailored to a novice as it is to an experienced computer user. As a freebie for the next 72-hours, this is Rolls Royce quality software for absolutely nowt. Grab it while you can.

The license may be read from another location, but I seem to recall that the directions for doing so were rather precise in contrast to just putting it on the desktop. That said, my experience is that you do not have to leave it out there once the program has read and registered the license information, so you can move it then if you so desire.

Thanks for the heads up
Havent yet installed, but Ash always praises this app when he posts about it.
So, going to finally try it out :)

This may be a silly question:
=> Does the licence *need* to be “on the desktop”?
Can it not be placed in the program folder? Or in the dwld folder (mine is in a different partition)?

I tend to keep my desktop clean & uncluttered, so prefer not to have it there.
If anyone could confirm this, would much appreciated!

Peace

I also discovered that it’s OK to uninstall the old one after installing the new one, at least when the new one is installed in a different folder, as I just happened to be doing for unrelated personal reasons. :)
