I have loaded the new version, all previous version ran without a hitch, this version gives me errors all over the place.

Typical error on attachment

Hi Pete,

This problem cannot be reproduced under normal working and testing conditions, on any supported platform. Please provide a data set and a list of steps to reproduce these issues consistently.

You don't provide any information on your machine. However, the most probable cause for this problem is a defective graphics driver. See also this forum post for additional information.

Al final se descargó. ¿Antes de instalar la nueva versión, hay que desinstalar la anterior?

Hola Juan,

I have installed the new version on my Win 10 desktop without any problems. My question is related to my other computer, a laptop with Win 7. Will I have to request an activation code for this computer separately? I don't want to mess my system with something which might not work. If I am right, I suppose that I will have to download the file from the download area again and send a password request, as I did for my main computer.

Hello all,

I've held off updating to 1.8.6 for a bit to let the dust settle.  I'm not seeing the dialog boxes that are shown on the very first page anywhere.  When I go to the distribution page I see the reactivation option there.  I did try it and got the email, but I think I'll make another request (after the hour expires) to make sure I'm totally ready (thought I'd have an option to cancel - didn't realize the next step would execute sending the link)

Just double checking.. to uninstall on OSX, I presume it's the standard drag and drop to the trash?  Can I leave the old activation code in it's current location if I want to go back to 1.8.5 or do I need to remove it also?  If I'm understanding correctly, the new code needs to go into a new location anyway (on all machines where PI is running).

Thanks for the continued development efforts.. there is nothing better than PI!!

Jay S.

Yes, requesting new activation codes is the easiest and fastest way to reactivate your license on a new machine. See FAQ 2.7 for complete information about using PixInsight on several machines:

As for your password, you don't have to request a new one, unless you have forgotten the current one, or except if you don't like it for any reason.

Yes, just throw the /Applications/PixInsight folder to trash (you'll need an administrative authorization); that's all you need to uninstall the application on macOS. Isn't this simple and nice, compared to the nightmare required in another operating system?

Yes, you can leave the old pixinsight-license file where it is for now. The new version uses a completely different license file and there cannot be any conflicts; the new licensing system has been designed with this as a precondition.

Hi Juan,
unfortunately I can't activate my copy as I have no longer access to my old email which was associated with the license. It doesn't exist anymore so I can't change it since it needs both mails to be done. How can I change my email address if I don't have access to my old one?

Thanks!

EDIT: I've read the download page more carefully and I've now sent an email for the problem. Please disregard this.
