Wait, I have just installed the "https://www.skypixels.at/HVB_Repository/" repository on this macOS machine and it works nicely. There are no certificate issues.

I suspect that the problem with "Network error: schannel:" is being caused by a misconfiguration of secure network connections on your machine. This is a relatively frequent problem on Windows 7. My advice is upgrade to Windows 10.

Good Job Juan,
Happy to see the new licensing system and the nice news.

Only one question: where can I find the new SubframeSelector tool? the one under Script-Batch processing seems to be the old one.

Thank you so much!

The SubframeSelector tool can be found under the ImageInspection and Preprocessing categories on Process Explorer.

It is under the Process menu.

Hi Sedat,

I am glad to know 1.8.6 is finally working for you.

That error message denotes a problem with the SSL certificate installed on the www.skypixels.at website. This does not mean that the certificate is incorrect necessarily, just that there are some discrepancies such as mismatched server names or certificate subjects. That's why one should always use EV (Extended Validation) certificates for websites.

You can disable secure connections for this repository, that is, specify http:// instead of https://, and it should work. Insecure connections are not advisable these days but in this way you'll be able to download updates from this website.

Thank you Juan! Another excellent response. I'm all set now. Cheers!

I never receive Activation Codes, I try 5 times.

Perhaps, I do a mistake ?


1) I click on the button,

2) I receive mail : "PixInsight: License Reactivation Request"

3) I click on the link :
"License reactivation link:
https://pixinsight.com/dist/license_reactivation.php?request=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"


4) I have a new screen :
"Software Distribution
License Reactivated
Our system has sent you an email with your new activation codes and some instructions to use them."

I Don't receive this mail with codes, where is the error ? I receive the first mail 'reactivation request', but not the second with codes. What I do wrong ?

Regards.

JP

Johh my problem is sorted out now, thank you. The first download was corrupt which was the reason behind my problem. I think last night's heavy download traffic is the culprit.

Yes, I take a look into 'indésirables' (French version Firefox)…. no answer, only real spam !

I will return in 1.8.5 if I can't install the new version, very bad.



I found what is wrong !

the answer was in the 'spam' directory of my provider I can see only online, not in Firefox spam directory on my PC !

Thank you,

JP

Jean-Paul,

Which email service provider do you use, if that's not asking too much (you can write us the answer by email if you want).

The most probable cause for this problem is that your email provider is blocking the second email because it has activation codes, which can be interpreted as 'strange things' by an obsessively configured email service. In such case, we can associate your license with a different email address on our server. Free Gmail and Yahoo email accounts work without problems.

Thank you Juan, it's exactly the problem, 'Free.fr' (the name of my french provider) stop the second message, not the first. but I can read it online, and now all work fine.

I try quickly !


Usualy, I made a save of my pixinsight-license file, I found this file in my user directory. In the new version, the date of this file is always 2015/02/11, the date of my first installation, is this file the new license, or where can I found the new one ?

Thanks,
JP
