Having Problems GETTING to the Updater?

Before doing anything else > check this information

Having Problems RUNNING the Updater? 

ouch! Running on a Mac with VmWare's VmFusion? You may not have support of multimedia acceleration extensions, i.e. MMX, depending on your version or config, if so then try the 3.6 patch (8.72 MB)  instead of the latest 3.7 update

There have been a few rare reports of problems with the 3.6 update installer, such as a Runtime error '7' - Out of Memory. We don't know exactly what's causing this yet but in a few cases, these tips have helped, so try these workarounds:

Before downloading the installer:
  • If you are unable to access the download page after the registration form page, it is possibly because of having disabled cookies. Make sure your browser accepts cookies from if you have your web browser configured to keep tight cookie controls.
After downloading the installer:
  • You must have a legitimate, working PD Pro v3.x installation. No demo version of 3.x. It can be an NFR (review) copy, an upgrade to v3.0 from v2.x or a straight 3.1, 3.1a, 3.2, 3.5 or 3.6 installation or anything updated from 3.x to 3.6 with prior, legitimate free patches. It is also ok (we think) to still have a 2.x installation of the free 1.2 version installaed, as long as they're in different, separate folders and you know which one contains the 3.x installation. During the update installation you will have an opportunity to specify which folder to update to 3.7.
  • reboot your system
  • make sure no Dogwaffle session is currently running
  • do a "Disk Cleanup" on your C: drive. Open 'My Computer' and right-click onh the C: drive to select Properties...; then click the [Disk Cleanup] button. This should clean out files that have been lurking in your Temp folder for a long time.  If that didn't fix it,...
  • manually clean out the user-specific (local) Temp folder. This is a folder (in Windows XP) which is found in
C:\Documents and Settings\[user login]\Local Settings\Temp
For example, if your login name is 'Bob' then you should find the folder in C:\Documents and Settings\Bob\Local Settings\Temp

Please do not remove the Temp folder altogether, just the files found in it. Note also that some files therein might be locked or protected from deletion because they may be in use by other current processes such as text editors, email services and other tasks which your login sequence started. Look around, perhaps it's a good time to cleanup and remove the junk that's been accumulating in there over the years ;-)

If that still doesn't let you do the update, try this:
  • manually clean out the system Temp folder (in C:\WINDOWS\Temp). Don't remove the Temp folder itself, but you could remove the files and folders inside it. Be sure however that no other programs are running which might possibly be using a subfolder in Temp or a scratch file. It's best to stop other programs before installing.
  • reboot your system
  • If your anti-virus program is suspected of interfering with the installation, disable your anti-virus program just before getting ready to install PD Pro. Don't forget to re-enable it thereafter.

If you still can't apply the update please contact us through the forum and provide details of your OS version and hardware configuration, and exactly which version of PD Pro 3 you have.
