    Agreed, the Update service updater doesn't work, but as I said that's Xara/Magix's job to fix. I don't know what's taking them so long to fix it, or to stop the constant reminder of the update expiry, but I can't believe they don't know about the complaints. The annoyance factor to what may well be many users that two useless popups have to be clicked away EVERY TIME XPGD-17 starts up is something they really need to fix, and especially the service updater which has a real job to do but isn't doing.

    And it's not just the annoyance to what may be many of their users, it also questions their coding competence and their ability to properly test their code before it gets deployed onto users' machines. If I was Xara/Magix, I'd be embarrassed and worried about that!
    No, the issue is a pure Magix one. Magix wrap the Xara product up shoddily. All you might blame Xara for is not picking the right partner.

    "No, I'm using V18.5" I have a laptop with v16, and it doesn't seem to have an updater service, but it did have the upgrade expiry popup via PhotoGraphicDesigner.exe, but that is now blocked.

    Just to let you know that the Updating Service app's recent update installed on my machine w/o a hitch. Perhaps some of your security software blocks it?
