I had to format my pc due to various difficulties. Now I installed Chromanator and when I try to run it, it's asking me to download the latest version. I am using Version 1,0.8 and it's asking me to download an update version.
I tried to but could not find the newer version. Can someone help me?

Sorry hippa, I deleted my post because I just tried to run Chromanator and I'm also getting a message asking me to download the latest version. I'm also running 1.0.8, which to my knowledge is the latest version, since I can't see anything newer on the Downloads page. So perhaps Chromy has expired and they haven't uploaded a new version for us?

hippa, I got it working again by doing the following:
- Uninstall Chromy
- Download a new copy of my program key file by using the Key Resender
- Install Chromy and select the new program key file
Maybe it'll work for you too?

Indeed, the program hasn't expired at all, so I'm not sure what's going on. When you formatted your computer, did the clock/date get screwed up? Make sure it's set to the correct date.

Now I am trying to install a fresh installation of Chromy. But when I sent for a key resender, all I could get where Alam DV and Effects Lab. Chromanator Key isn't there. What is happening what did I do wrong. In fact I do own the three programmes but only two are shown, owned by me.

I've resent your Chromanator key. They were separate due to the post/zip code being entered slightly differently (with a space).

Now once the new key is downloaded and saved in a file I cannot see it.

Make sure your browser hasn't turned it into a text file. If your computer thinks it is a text file, you will need to remove '.txt' from the end of the filename (make sure you have file extensions viewable if you don't already).

Well Tarn, thanks for the time I am taking for the problem, which I had it the first time I tried to install Chromy , but now your sugestion solved the installation problem. Thanks for that , but the other problem which asks me to download the latest version is still persisting. And in fact I downloaded the latest version, yet it still stucks.

When you uninstalled Chromy, did you also delete the "Chromanator Files" folder under your "My Documents" folder?
1. Uninstall Chromy
2. Delete "My Documents\Chromanator Files" folder
3. Install Chromy
Worth a try!
