I have problems downloading files or logging in…
If you cannot log into the photools.com customerWeb
- Use copy/paste to transfer your email name and license from the share-it! purchase email to the input fields in the log in form.
- Add www.photools.com and www.photoolsweb.com to your Trusted Sites when you work with Internet Explorer.
- Make sure you allow the web site photools.com and photoolsweb.com to set session cookies (default setting in all browsers).
- Temporarily disable all kinds of personal firewalls and similar security software.
- Clear the cache of your browser.
- Click on the Forgotten License Code link at the bottom of the log-in form to request your license code. If your email is know, the system sends your license code to the registered email address.
- Clear the cache of your browser (Important!).
- Restart your browser.
- Try another browser.
- If you have downloaded an incomplete file, delete the incomplete file on your disk before downloading again.
- If the download always stops at about the same size (amount of data downloaded), it’s probably the browser cache, the TEMP folder containing some left-overs from a previous failed download attempt, or it’s your proxy server.
- Temporarily disable your virus checker. Don’t forget to re-enable after the download has completed.
- If the download takes very long or never completes, check your firewall settings.
- Temporarily disable all kinds of download accelerators, personal firewalls and similar software
- Retry the download
- Add www.photools.com and www.photoolsweb.com to the “Trusted Sites” when you use Internet Explorer
To verify that the downloaded file is complete and valid, you can use a SHA1 checksum tool to calculate the checksum of the file on your disk and compare the result with the checksum displayed in the customerWeb.
