Anybody know where the registration file for Winsketch may be located.

I bought a new computer and I transferred Winsketch to the new one but it comes up in demo mode.

I'm totally happy with Version 5 and I never upgraded beyond that. I have my original disks but they are Version 2 so they are no help.

Any ideas???

This may be a little late, but mine is in c:sketcher - maybe yours is the same place.

Ben:

The location of the files is important. You didn't specify your operating system, but however you 'search" files you could try searching the hard drive for anything named "winsketch." After you find it, you will need to go into your win.ini files (again, don't know what operating system you are using) and make certain that the "path" for winsketch under Clickforms directs the program to wherever the winsketch files are located. Post your op system and I'll try to get you there if help is still needed.

Doug,
Thank you for making yourself available to answer questions.

I am having a not so little problem with the so called newer version of Winsketch - 6.0

Apex has always been my program of choice via a very reliable DOS based format which unfortunately does not lend itself to EDI.

Currently using Bradford 9.0 version installed through Virtual PC - Windows 98. Appraisal Program works fine as long as I do not use Winsketch 6.0
Never used 5.0 and Bradford does not recommend installing 5.0. I was directed to Winsketch website for possible solution to my problem...

Winsketch 6.0 causes the appraisal program to freeze. Since i am using a dual operating system I am wondering if Winsketch is in conflict with Virtual
PC?

Thanks. [/b]

Sorry, I am not familiar with Virtual PC and haven't used WinSketch since version 5. My very STRONG recommendation would be to upgrade to a windows version of APEX which I currently use and EDI flawlessly. You do need to purchase the $99 integrator from Bradford to make it work, but I think you will agree it is worth the added expense. Also, I am assuming you are using Adobe Acrobat (writer) to create *.pdf files to EDI. If not, you may wish to consider that, too. It is the only way I know of to send "non-tamperable" and complete reports on the internet.

Thanks Doug for your reply.

Everything seems to be $99 - winsketch upgrade, digital signature card,
Apex intergrator. Except of course Adobe Writer which is a few hundred.
Its on my list.

One thing is for certain, never assume anything :wink:

Go to Kinko's (if you have them in your area), and scan your signature yourself - cheap and easy!! :D
