Please email to support@pholix.com providing your first and last name, and other order information, such as phone, address, company name, etc. We will try to find your order in the database and send the registration key to you as soon as possible.
 
Q4 Installation produces error messages and fails. Possible error messages: "pholi194.exe is not a valid Windows NT application", "Checksum is incorrect. Installation file may be corrupted".
Self-extracted distributive file pholi194.exe may be downloaded incompletely or was corrupted during transferring over network. It is recommended to download it again.

Set PhotoPhilia™ as a default application for AWD extension. You can manage file associations with the menu command Tools\File Types in PhotoPhilia Explorer.

Please, download the latest version.
 
Q8 Aspect ratio is incorrect while printing some AWD and TIFF files.

Q9 Do you have an Apple Computer compatible version?
Our program works in MS Windows operating system only on Intel platform. It is not designed for Apple/Mac, and at present we do not plan to prepare a version for Apple/Mac.
 
Q10 Does PhotoPhilia™ provide the ability to create a standalone slideshow that I can share with others?
PhotoPhilia version 1.9.4 has Slideshow Creator tool which allows you to create and share slideshows with captions, background music, transitions. Please download the latest version.
 
Q11 Icon files are displayed as PhotoPhilia icon after installing version 1.6 (the same problem happened with cursor files). Some icons in My Computer folder, for example ZIP drive, are also replaced by PhotoPhilia icon.
Open the following REG file restoredefaulticoncursorview.reg (file size is 0.2 Kb), or download it and merge into the Registry: locate the downloaded REG file in Windows Explorer and double-click on it, or select menu command File/Merge in Explorer. This patch restores default system view of *.ico and *.cur files. Restart computer after applying the changes into the Registry.
 
Q12 How to print multiple images per page?
You can print multiple images per page with the menu command File/Print/Thumbnails in PhotoPhilia Explorer or File/Print/Album in PhotoPhilia Album. Set desired Rows and Columns numbers in the Print Thumbnails dialog box. For example, if you wish to print 6 images per page, then you may set Rows=3 and Columns=2. The number of printed images on one paper is equal to product Rows * Columns. It is always recommended to click Preview button before actual printing.
 
Q13 Batch converting, scanning multiple images and other batch operations fail with the resulting message:
Conversion completed
Files processed: N        Errors: N.
This problem is usually caused by incorrect folder path entered in the "Destination folder" field. Specify the full path to the output folder - type destination folder path with drive letter, for example C:\Pictures\Photos, or a UNC network path such as \\Common\Pictures\Photos. It is recommended to use the Browse button to select existing destination folder for output images.

- Then restart the program.
