As we approach the end of 2017, we reflect upon the year behind us and prepare for the new, it is a great time for you to consider some software maintenance! There is always talk about how to maintain your printer, keeping your computer files cleaned and organized, but no one ever talks about software maintenance.
At Darkroom Software, we are always looking at ways to improve the software experience. Whether that be squashing annoying bugs or adding new features, the software is an ever changing product. All too often, issues that pop-up have been addressed in a recent build and a simple update can correct these issues. Now is the time to check your software and see if you are running the most recent version. If you are unsure, you can visit our downloads page, which posts the most recent version of the software with all of the release notes on what has been added and/or fixed in all of the updates.
Here is a list of things that you can do to keep your software running smoothly throughout the coming year.
- Connect your computer to the internet at least once every six months. The software needs to check-in with our activation system to confirm valid licensing.
- Write down your activation code and store in a safe place. If you ever have any issues, Darkroom Software may ask you for this information. You should also affix a copy of the activation code to your event computer, in case there is an issue while on the job.
- Update to the most recent build of your licensed version. This can be done in the software or you can download from our website.
- Stay up to date on news from Darkroom Software by liking our Facebook page. You can also join our newsletter mailing list from our Facebook page.
If you are a Darkroom Booth user and haven’t upgraded to version 3.0, now is a great time to consider it! To upgrade from version 2.x to version 3.0 is only $95. Thats about 2 major coffee chain coffees a month! There are numerous new features in version 3.0 and the best is yet to come.
We hope everyone has a prosperous and booth filled 2018!
