    @yaksha and @amnesia: I honestly don’t know. I don’t know much about this software. I just thought I should make a post about a good freebie.

    This version seems to be from January 2007. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    Dear Ashraf

    Looks like Xara’s website have some problem with registrations.

  • Jaap

    To activate this free version, start Xara XS. You will first get a little screen, which asks you to register. Click on ‘Register this copy’. Your browser will open. If you are new to Xara, you will have to get an account with password. Do that. After registering, the serial number will be sent to your e-mail adress. This will take only a few seconds. Check your e-mail and copy the serial number. On the little start screen of Xara XS click then on the button ‘Run Xara XS’. In the next screen enter your serial number.

    I already had an account with Xara, because I got a free copy of Xara 3D (for making 3D [animated] text), back in 2005. It was on a cd with a pc magazine. Nice program. I played a lot with it. And now I can play with an other Xara program. I’ve got some mysterious errors (for example: Internal program error, but Xara XS works on my machine (Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit).

    Ashraf, thanks for the link to this program!

    Really nice vector program, but I’m so used to the vector tools in Paint Shop Pro it’s going to take a while to get the hang of this one.
    Thanks for sharing!
