You should be able to bypass the serial number and just update the 3 files per the instructions in the text file. Do it before you try opening PSP.

In relation to this subject, I managed to download the files from the Dropbox link. I renamed the old files by adding the prefix 'old' (oldif.dnt etc)
I copied the new files across.
Launched Proshow Producer, (my fully licenced version was 7.7.3527)
I opened a previously created show that showed all slides containing an image but any slides that should have had video clips remained blank.
I tried playing the show and it stopped just before any video clips.
Recalling the message about shows created in earlier versions may have problems, I recreated a small test show in the 'updated' version 9
The same situation remained. it doesn't appear to like video clips.
I'm sure my PC is up to the job, I have 16Gb RAM, a 2GB GPU and an 'oldish' Intel core i5 760 2.8Ghz processor

I have reverted back to version 7 and all is well again.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Solved.

I had a think about the issue and decided to try a different approach. I installed the trial version 9.0.3797.
I was advised that the trial version would expire in 15 days.
I created a short test show and it had the yellow bar across the slides stating that it had been made with evaluation software.
I then copied the three .dnt files to the relevant folder, renaming the old ones.

It is now working fine, videos are appearing and playing OK.
The 'evaluation' warning has disappeared.

For info.

Thanks for posting your fix, Mark. I've been considering upgrading to v9 and it's good to know what to do if I run across the same issue.
