Free Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox!

Update: This promotion has ended! Sorry for those who missed it.

Remember Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox? It was given out by Giveaway of the Day back in December when I reviewed it. Well in case you lost it or you missed the giveaway you can attain the same version as the giveaway (v3.5) from Brothersoft.com! I won’t talk much about the software in this thread because you can refer back to my full review to learn more. However I will say this is a very useful freebie for people who work with flash (.SWF, .FLV, and .EXE) a lot… especially considering this software can convert .SWF -> .AVI – something most video converters cannot do (you can always use FormatFactory after you get the video in .AVI to convert it to other formats if you wish).

Here is a quick description of what this software can do:

SWF & FLV Toolbox converts individual or batches of Flash SWF/FLV files into Projector EXE, AVI, frame-by-frame JPG/GIF/BMP image series, or single animated GIF.

SWF & FLV Toolbox features an extremely useful Advanced Projector specialty, that lets creating EXE files out of any SWF / FLV, thus making it possible to watch SWF / FLV movies using handy controls and without installing Flash Player on a PC.

Eltima SWF & FLV Toolbox works on Windows 2000/ XP/2003/Vista/2008. Officially 64-bit does not seem to be supported but you may still be able to get it to work.

To get Eltima SWF & FLV Toolback (v3.5.25.503) for free follow this simple guide:

  • Download it (click here for the promotion page in case download link doesn’t work).
  • Install it. During installation you should see the following screen:

2009-08-19_105714

Type in your name and e-mail address (you must type in both). I don’t know if Eltima spams or not so feel free to make use of Mailinator, 10MinuteMail, or Trashmail. Then click “Get your free activation code”. You will get the following success message if it worked:

2009-08-19_105725

Check your e-mail for an e-mail from “Eltima Software <support@eltima.com>” with the subject of “SWF Toolbox – Free copy”. In the e-mail you should have see your registration code:

2009-08-19_110202

Ironically notice that Eltima is using the same file/registration link for this giveaway as they did for Giveaway of the Day back in December.

Copy and paste the registration e-mail in the back in the last field in the installer window.

  • Finish installing and enjoy!

Update: Please do not worry that this freebie is from Brothersoft.com. I know Brothersoft.com has a bad reputation for hosting files with malware on them. However I promise you this SWF & FLV Toolbox download is 100% clean. VirusTotal found nothing and my Avira stayed quiet during install. Furthermore, this is the same exact file that was given out by GOTD. Nothing to fear friends!

    @Ashraf:

    I did extensive reading on the net and found too many people who claimed upgrading to IE 7 or 8 (there were instances of both) totally screwed them up, and, in fact, they were unable to revert back to 6 (!), and consequently regretted not having left well enough alone…..This really scared me off, as I am VERY dependent on web use and email (is OE still a component of IE?) and am definitely not in a position to be without IE and OE or to have the time to fix major screw-ups just now. So I remain in a quandry ever since I discovered that I am not getting dropdown menus on at least two sites I frequent regularly (Dottech being one of them)…:-(….I realized from my ‘research’ that institutions’ inability to work with FF is not a local problem (Hebrew, Israel), but rather a global phenomenon, due to the high cost of such a switch-over in large institutions. That explained why the problem here seems to be with major institutions, such as banks, health funds, and government offices. The most fascinating forum on this issue is at:

    Sorry for the off-topic…….:-)….

    @Janet Berg: As I said in my post this SWF & FLV Toolbox being given away by Brothersoft is the exact same one that was given away by GOTD back in December. It is literally the same file.

    Janet did you ever upgrade to IE 7 or 8? If not when I get time I will search Google for some tutorials for you on that topic.

    @Ashraf:

    It comes up as soon as I run ‘swf_toolbox_brothersoft.exe’. If I either deny access or quarantine, I get a runtime error and the installation shuts down.

    Why does Brothersoft have a GOTD file?? I thought it was suspicious because I always write Giveawayoftheday as GAOTD….

    @Janet Berg: I did not get any sort of warning while installing this and I also use Avira. In fact I don’t even find any “GOTD_reg.dll” in my SWF & FLV Toolbox folder. You may have Avira on more strict settings than I do, I don’t know, but I am going to say yes it is a false positive considering the file name and the origin. The detection, any how, is not of a virus or malware but more of a “suspicious” action. Even if you were to put it in quarantine I bet the program would still work.
