    Default nag screen? can I please get this to stop showing?

    Hey I have XPG&D 15.1.0.53605 and it looks like my "upgrade service" has ended. Every single time I load the software I get a nag screen. I am aware that it is out of the range where I can upgrade it now, but don't need to know this many times. It does not have any checkboxes to not show anymore. Am I stuck with this every single time, or can I remove it somehow? Really after the last "update fix" I have almost had enough with this software and company because how they messed up core functionality... but I need it for my full time job. Any help? Thanks!

    Both have the means to be stopped from re-appearing.
    Does XPG&D not have similar?

    I was getting one for DPX 16. But it seems to have stopped.

    Could a Mod move this to the Dear Xara forum as the omission of a cancellation mechanism is either bad coding or extremely poor marketing where Magix is wholly missing the point of professional software?

    I currently have XPGD 365 v12, and I was getting this also, and the way I got it to stop is, close out the pop ups, and once I was at the main program I went to "See attached Image" Hope that is of some help. But yes I agree it is a pain.

    Funny how irritated folks get about these things and yet for others it’s like water off a ducks back (ie no problem at all). Personally I have a quick swear at MAGIX, click the don’t show this again box knowing full well it will probably be there next time, and try and get on with life.

    I guess it is just another straw that will eventually break the camel's back for some folk.

    I have 12 but have gone back to version 11.
    Both get a nag screen. I switch it off under Help>Info pop-ups>Turn all off.
    This holds for a few days and then the screens return again.
    Yes, it annoys the .... out of me!
    Sure I can re-do the 'Turn it all off' but that shouldn't happen in the first place.
    Grrr.
