Hi all. I have followed the given instructions to the letter as far as kjay shared but I have the following problem. Once I have installed and run the SAiLicKey according to his instructions, every time I open the program it gives the error: Error while patching. Wrong Version.It only works with Production Suite Build 1472. I checked the version and it has updated the program to version 1472. I first installed 8.6, then update 8.6v2.B1448 update-1 and then update 8.6v2.B1465 update-2. I then copied and pasted the SAiLiczKey as instructed and ran it as administrator. Everyhting seemed OK until I tried to open and use the program. I have uninstalled and cleared all remnants of the progam and re-installed several times but to no avail. PLEASE help me someone!!! all4free777

Perhaps you could upload v8.6 for the people who don`t have it, you`ll get more help on this by doing so my friend.

all4free777 12 Aug 2010, 04:17 #

Hi ellene. Many thanks for your suggestion. Although I am pretty efficient in working on PC's, I have never uploaded anything . If you can explain to me how to do it I will do so with pleasure.all4free777

all4free777 12 Aug 2010, 05:52 #

I normally clear my surfing traces each time I shut down my PC but by mistake I did not do so last night. I have the web site where I downloaded the 8.6 version. Would it be OK for me to give the name here so others can get the program? It is a new thread on the web site loaded in June 2010.Please come back to me soonest.I am busy seeding the progam back on the site using BitComet so it will together with other seeders keep it going. By the way the program is on a torrent site.

I have been searching for the 8.6 version for about 3 weeks and only found it day before yesterday. I have downloaded it for a very good friend of mine who is a sign graphic artist. He lost his version 8.5 through a power outage which crashed his PC in the middle of a job he was doing. For some reason his UPS also crashed when the power went down. He had forgotten to check his backup batteries of the UPS. These things happen I guess.Please come back to me soonest.

In the meantime I am sooo happy that I found this forum while cruising the web. I actually was reading the above thread because it was to do with version 8.5. Then when I came across kjay's post in answer to RG SIgn's request for v8.6, I literally jumped up and down at my PC. Bless you KJAy for your post. It has given me the opportunity of blessing my friend with the latest version(8.6) Now if my problem, which is actually my friend's problem as well, can be addressed, I will be very grateful. The program is acting on my PC the same as on his PC. (See my first post in this thread). Until I see some answers; Long live Astatalk. Thanks.all4free777

all4free777, in which operating system are you trying to install? You should NOT install the Sentinel Driver or the HASP Driver. And, be sure to install as Trial. I gave up on installing 8.6 in Windows 7, 64bit. It looked to me like it kept trying to install it in both Program Files folders (the 64bit and the x86 folder). So, I went back to the 8.1 version.

all4free777 13 Aug 2010, 07:53 #

Hi all. I am going to attempt to upload the 8.6 program as I understand that the links to the torrent program are not being seeded at present. RG signs we will sought the problem out as I don't give up easily. The other problem my friend is having on his windows 7 64bit OS is that he can save and work with the program but if he boots up in the morning when he gets to his workplace he has to run the SAiLicKey each time to "Legalise" the program.If there is a work-around or latest patch to solve this irritation please bring it to the table as it were, anybody out there. Many thanks to all on Astatalk froma new member willing to help all I can.

all4free777, there is an easy fix for your "Legalize" problem. Simply put a link to SAiLicKey in the Startup folder. After you do this, whenever you turn on the computer, the SAiLicKey will be activated automatically. Problem solved. Good luck.

Thanks very much RG signs...It worked. All4free777 was the friend finding out about my problem for me.....thanks to him big time, too.

RG signs, maybe i have a fix for your problem....

Anybody struggling with the flexi 8.6v2 error: Panos loader error 53 and/or runtime errors....this is what I did to fix this: (Okay, I use 64 bit windows 7 ultimate, so I have not tested this on a 32 bit os yet.....) When installing the app, and you have the setup dialog with the check-boxes...un-check the Sentinel driver thingy. Then when running the dl (flexi 8.6v2) - un-check the Sentinel driver check box again....after installation, run the sp1 update and bob's your auntie!

U R welcome, rubbercousin. Who is that Bob character you referred to at the end of your post?

Can you explain more about where the 2nd place is that you un-check Sentinel Driver? I have seen only one place and that's when I was installing the program. My printer is old, so I went back to version 8.1. It worked perfectly on my Windows 7 Ultimate until I also installed Photoshop CS5 (and CS3). After installing Photoshop, I get the Runtime error every time I open Flexi. But, Flexi still works fine. As for the Ponos Error, it doesn't seem to affect the program either. You just have to click OK in the error window before Flexi will work. I think the Ponos Error is a little gift (signature) from the guy/gal who created the loader. Google it and see what you come up with. Glad it's working well for you.

RG Signs
RG Signs 16 Aug 2010, 02:29 #

If the Runtime Error still bugs you, here is a fix that worked for me. Open Flexi and go to Edit/Preferences/File Paths/Adobe Plug-ins. Now browse away from the real Adobe PS Plug-in folder. It can be to almost any other folder that does not have any Plug-ins or create an empty folder to point to. Most people do not use the Photoshop Plug-ins in Flexi anyway. Flexi will also open faster now because it doesn't have to load all of your Photoshop Plus-ins. And, no more Runtime Error.

Also, Flexi 10 is to be released next month. So, get ready for more fun.

all4free777 17 Aug 2010, 06:20 #

Hi all. It's me once again. In answer to your query RG Signs. First of all having gone through the problems with rubbercousin and now him being on a short break-away at a resort for a well earned rest, let me detail to you as he did for me, the answer to your problem above. Forgive my simple instructions but they work.
1. Install FlexiSign 8.6
2. When installing a small window opens giving you certain objects to tick or untick. Untick sentinel box.
3. now install the large update ( 8.6v2.B1448 update-1)Once again when the small window opens giving you the option to tick or untick boxes, untick again the sentinel box.
4. Lastly install the update(8.6v2.B1465 update-2).You will now have 8.6v2 installed.
5. Now, using the link which KJay gave ( go fetch the SAiLicKey.
6. Using your instructions, copy and paste the licence key into the start-up folder of the OS. I am also using win 7 64bit Ultimate. Using the combination of all the instructions given on this thread in the way set out above the following happens.
a) No more error message
b) Automatic opening of the progam.
c) 100% working program.
By the way my friend is using Photoshop CS5 and I think many plug-ins and he does not experience any problems. And bob's your auntie is just a way of saying everything works OK.Until next post just a very BIG thanks to you all at AstaTalk. you are a great community and I am enjoying my participation very much. Again thanks.

First off Thank you! Although I got this to work properly my Kaspersky continues to say SAiLicKey is a virus, "trojan-dropper.win32.renum.fio" to be exact. Normally I would disregard that considering majority of cracks are mistaken for viruses however, after re-enabling Kaspersky after a few days of no downloading I was infected with multiple viruses... Is this in fact a virus or am I crazy?
