What are people saying about GiMeSpace Desktop Extender 3D

Frank Stephens I understand that this can be used to make windows larger than the screen, but for cases where the windows fit on the normal desktop, you can use Win7's built-in magnifier. Use Win+ to activate and zoom in, Win- to zoom out. You don't have to shift the "+" key, so technically it's Win=.

Jorrit IJpenberg Hello Frank!

Yes windows does allow you to zoom in on windows but it doesn't allow you to zoom out. With GiMeSpace you can look at your extended desktop like your screen resolution would be much bigger then normal so you can get much bigger windows or many more windows then normal on your screen.
Windows is not able to do this.

Jorrit IJpenberg GiMeSpace is designed to have minimal system impact and be totally transparent to the normal way programs work. The worst problem that you can encounter is that some window objects that you want to stay fixed are scrolling. But this can be resolved by removing those window classes from the scrolling windows list by double clicking on them in the GiMeSpace control panel. For the rest there should not be any reason for it not to work with any other software.

E. S. Hallo,
2 questions:
1. a)does 1 installation per footprint mean, that - in case of having to make a new window installation - one can not activate the software again?
b)what´s in case of changing harddisk or ram?
c) or do you offer an online deactivation -possibility at least for planned system changes?
2. how does the software work on multi-monitor-systems?

Thank you for answering in adbance

Jorrit IJpenberg 1 The software protection is handled by Digtal River. is not locked to the windows installation but is smart enough to recognize if it is activated on a different system. It does check online if is not activated twice on different computers. Changing ram or hd will not deactivate the installation.
2 Yes, there is no problem using it with many monitors.

Software Guy Exactly - 3 computers is not a bulk order. hence the need for a family pack of 3 or 5 licenses for non-commercial (home, family, single user or other) use. Many other companies offer a 3 machine or 5 machine license (non-commercial) for just exactly such occurrances. So, we either see a user friendly license (all his/her non commerce machines) or a 3 computer or 5 computer family license (again non-commerce) as a family friendly way to offer multiple licenses cost effectively.
These were just suggestions as once a family starts using software, they tend to stay and upgrade with the software they like. Family packs are a great way to develop a customer base. My daughter may borrow my laptop, start using some utility she likes - she takes it back to college and before you know it many want the software and additional new sales have more than compensated the small discounts. And this is exactly the kind of software students might like - they can open multiple windows and scroll or pan between them when writing a paper as an example. But for them to use it and pay, it must be cost effective to them.
And with the FREE virtual desktops out there like moo0 multidesktop, the competition is stiff. Enough said.

Michael R. Are there any screenshot-utilites (like e.g. IrfanView's screenshot-feature), with which the entire virtual desktop can be captured, so it would be be possible to get screenshots larger than the display-resolution?

Or even better, does GTE3D contain one itself?

Stefan Doerr According to the fine print:

Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.
Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint.

So if my hardware fails in some days I will loose my license? Sorry, but in this case this deal does not work for me.

Michael R. About my screenshot-question above:

>> I tried many things to make this happen, but it is not possible." (from the Website's FAQ)

Perhaps it would work to let the OS display (i.e. make visible) all parts of the virtual screen (one by one), make snapshots and afterwards glue the pictures together (like a panorama picture) to create a screencapture of all the regions.

This might be flickering, but some of the screenshot-tools, which proclaim, that they can capture a whole window and not only the visible parts do it similar: They are scrolling the content down to make it all visible.

I suppose it wouild be a great advantage to be able to do this. I suppose for me this would be the only really useful reason, I would (temporarily) activate a virtual display.

Feedback from a user suggested that there are 3 utilities that are able to make screenshots from extended windows with the names: "Infinite screen" "Snag It" and "Greenshot".

Michael R. Is it possible to define the size of the virtual desktop?
Or 'jump' via command-line call to a certain position, i.e. define the visible upper-left position, which should be visible?
Than it would be easier to make a snapshot of the visible part of the virtual desktop and glue the pictures afterwards together.
...
I just tried GimmeSpace together with Greenshot and Irfanview. Unfortunatly both only show the visible (and not the virtual) Screen.

Louis H SnagIt can do it.... (Caveat. At present I am only able to capture what is off-screen IF I leave a small piece of the windows showing and include them in the area I indicate I wish to capture. As long as I do that, it captures everything. If there is a way to get SnagIt to capture a window that is completely off-screen, I have not figured out how to get it to do so.)

I am using SnagIt 12 on Win 7 64 bit Home Premium.

The how-to is located in the help file you can download from

http://www.techsmith.com/...ation.html

You want to find the section "Selection Properties" and the subsection "Extended Window Tab."

SnagIt 12 has a "preview" function that will allow you to see the full area off-screen that you are wanting to capture. This allows you to insure that you have the correct dimensions selected.

If so, is there a way to have 'fixed' programs on one monitor (programs that stay on the one monitor, or possibly a 'corner' of the panning space stays on the one monitor) while allowing me to pan through the virtual space on the other monitor?

Tim Parsons Can you clarify the licensing? The details above suggest that the license covers a single PC and a laptop, but it also says it's a hardware footprint and that licenses can't be transferred between computers, and that the install has to be within two days -- which sounds like a single machine only.

Also, I have an earlier version of GimeSpace (no 3D in its name!) that I use occasionally to get round the limitations of a lack of vertical realestate on my netbook's 600 pixel high screen, but I find it too intrusive to leave it running all the time (it occasionally throws a child window into the long grass for no obvious reason); is the new version easier to unload and reload and configure? (Sorry, just realised that Aero is required for 3D so it won't run on my netbook anyway. Is there any way to check for updates to my existing version?)

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Tim!

The license is valid for only one computer, but if for some reason (hardware changes, computer breaks down) we are able to transfer it to an other computer.
If you have an old version you should be able to upgrade to a new version as long as it was bought via digital river.
GiMeSpace is as easy to run and exit as any other program. It has a lot of different options because many people have different needs. Still it is designed to have as little impact on your computer as possible.

Brad Hello Jorrit,

To clarify the Fine Print for myself, the statement is made: "Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed"

Does this apply to a situation wherein I purchase a new computer.

Would I be able to use my existing license previous activated on an old computer to install on my newly purchased computer? Or would I be required to make a secondary purchase?

Thank-you, Brad

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Brad,

Just like with windows, the software is linked to the computer. The registration system cannot check if the software is still being used on the old computer. So in general this transfer is not allowed.
How ever in the past when someones computer broke a week after purchasing the software I of course allowed a new copy to be installed on his new computer.

Hope this makes sense,
Jorrit

Lifetime Upgrades Will someone explain the upgrade policy more clearly? I see here under "THE FINE PRINT", the following statement:
"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version and minor versions thereafter. For versions after that, upgrades will require additional payment, which will be discounted by 50%."

However when I visit the webpage of the software here, I see this:
http://www.gimespace.com/...tions.html
"Q: When I buy the program, can I upgrade to future versions?
A: Yes, just install the new version and your registration stays valid."

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Gary,

The installer is always installing the latest version. And at anytime in the future you can always reinstall the latest version without loosing your license.
Changes made to both desktop extenders in the last year are related to the changed interface behavior of Windows 10 and optimizing for this windows version if it is detected on the system where it is installed on.

Hope this answers your questions,

If you don't run any 64bit programs that you want to resize then it is not needed to load this extension.

Paul So am I suppose to use the same computer for the rest of my life and not upgrade my computer because this company wants me to re-purchase the software every time I get a new computer or upgrade? NO THANKS. I read further up the chat that they LET a guy transfer the license when his computer broke down a week after purchasing. WHAT A NICE GESTURE! This software must be meant for old people that use the same computer for years because anyone that is super computer savvy is going to be upgrading frequently and buying new computers and if we keep having to re-purchase every piece of software it gets astronomical. Apparently they would rather sell no copies than let you use it on ONE computer AT A TIME, because that would be MUCH more reasonable.

Jorrit IJpenberg MS Windows has the same license deal it is locked to your computer, and spending $8.73 every 5 years (or what ever time period it takes to buy a new pc) seems a very cheap deal to me.

Paul LOL if you buy the full retail version of Windows, as I have, you can transfer it to ANY computer you buy UNLIMITED times. Please research before posting an nonfactual response. Furthermore, on your other "point".... SO are you going to have this sale every time I upgrade or buy a new computer?? It looks like the retail price of this product is $24.95, so unless I time my upgrades and computer purchases around sales on this site, it would cost $24.95 every time..... for something that the only advantage it has over the existing OS functionality is, "zooming out on the desktop extender"....................................

The fact that you are so out of touch of Windows licensing, (or intentionally misleading) and out of touch of your own retail pricing, means I will not do any business with you.

Patrick Leahy In my case I have 6 windows operating system on the one computer.
So more than likely, from what is said above I would probably have to purchase 6 licenses to get by. I agree with the above posts that you should be able to transfer this program to another computer anywhere anytime. Without that assurance I would not purchase these very restrictive license conditions.

geo User I have mentioned this before but I would like to get it going again for this incidence.
There are ways that the developer can control the installation and activation of a license. There are business out there that THAT is what they do.
So, for example I have software that I can uninstall the license by contacting the licensing server or by providing an un-install code that I get when I finish the removal of the software. plus there is always the background communication when the software is running with the licensing server.
So, in my opinion this kind of licensing policy (today's offer) keeps me from buying
that product.
And to add to what Paul was saying earlier, I change computers way often than the 5 year interval, more like every 2 years, not to mention the frequent burps of WINDOWS that require to use some clean install image (most resent for me was a windows update that TRASHED everything upon reboot.

So, no cigar for me.

Jorrit IJpenberg This continious "phoning home" license system was part of the original Desktop Extender 8 years ago but gave more problems then sollutions because people required programs to be activated on computers that are offline or behind restrictive company firewalls. The current system has no trouble like that. And like I said: for every license you buy you get a bigger discount, see:
http://www.gimespace.com/discounts.html
So it is not that you have to pay the full amount every time you activate a new installation. You can also buy in bulk if needed, license keys you can use whenever you like, they don't expire.

John Brazier Interestingly, it is unlikely that the licence of this product as stated would be upheld by a court. This is because a 'licence' is by definition a 'licence to use'; if you buy a full copy of Windows you can always transfer it to another computer: you have purchased a licence to use it; as long as you don't use it on two machines at once.

When a manufacturer sells you a machine with an 'OEM' version of Windows, it is tied to the machine (by agreement between Microsoft and the manufacturer). But this is because the manufacturer has sold you a 'product', and Windows is part of the package deal in the product.

Now here the author is saying you are buying a licence, but with restrictions. But at first blush it basically isn't a licence, it's a 'permission to use under my arbitrary conditions'. This isn't a 'licence' as is generally understood by the courts.

I could well be wrong - I don't know of any case over the points I've described dealing with economical client software. But who is going to fight over a $25 spend?

I'm interested in buying it, but in doing so I'm assuming it is nine dollars that I'm writing off. I suggest you do the same.

Jorrit IJpenberg We can endlessly talk about different license forms, after 8 years this form seem the be the easiest, alternative would be a yearly subscription based license that seems to be more and more used by companies…

Mark User I fully agree with the comments above.
The statement: "Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed" is a deal breaker for me. My PC may die tomorrow and I would need to purchase the license (or rather the "right to use it"), again. Even if my HDD needs to be replaced it can be treated as a different PC, as hardware footprint changes in such cases. Sorry, I cannot accept it.

Jorrit IJpenberg Like also explained in previous discussions, in these cases a new license is issued. The license terms are there to prefend abuse. For human consitions just email gimespacegimespace.com and we will solve isses like these.

CFGuy Hi - This software program looks very interesting and very reasonably priced; however there seems to be a slight contradiction in the "Fine Print" (EULA) section of this offer. The first line states "Each license allows installation on a single computer and a laptop", while two lines down from this line is stated "Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint". If the program can truly be installed on both a PC and a laptop, should it not have at least "two" "installation[s] with "two" seperate "footprint[s]"? Just wanted clarification before purchase. Thanks. -Cfguy

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi CFGuy,
It means that you can install it on one pc and one laptop, but once installed you cannot move those installs to another computer.
Let me know if you need more clarification.

Wade Townsend Hi, Last July I purchased this product for the same discount price... Is this a newer edition or the same one as last years?

Thanks.

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Wade. There has been no new version released since the last promotion in July.
But anyone that bought this product in the past can always install the latest version from gimespace.com without loosing it's original registration. So no need to buy a new license if you already have one.

Allan User This works just fine on my 60" monitor with my other virtual desktop software I have used for decades.

Yesterday, I tried the demo first, then bought a license. Today I bought a second license :)

One simple example was opening a desktop map software TOPO, expanding it out twice as big as my monitor in ALL directions and panning "off" the screen in great detail to anywhere on the map.

I liked it enough to buy a second copy today.

Hope this helps.

V M I use three monitors on my desk top. will this software spread across all three monitors?
Mar 22 at 3:02pm Copy Link

Jorrit IJpenberg Yes, it sees the entire windows desktop which includes all monitors. You can download the free trial software to try it out.

Mitchell User I could not get this program to work. No scrolling at all. Once I enabled the 64-bit extension windows opened and closed unexpectedly on both monitors and I could not close any of them. I had to log out and log back in. I am running Display Fusion and a few other resident programs. That might be the problem. I am in no way suggesting that you should not trial the program. Just sharing my experience which might be rare.

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Mitchell, thanks for your feedback, I will research this issue more. What you could try is look in the scrolling windows list in the GiMeSpace control panel and see if there are any programs/windows there that are part of display fusion or your other programs that might block the function of GiMeSpace, in that case you can exclude them from scrolling list and this might solve the problem.

Mitchell User Thank you for your prompt response. I panicked and uninstalled the program. I want to emphasize that in no way shape or form was I implying that this software was buggy in general. Quite the contrary, on the basis of other reviews and the lightning fast response from the developer on a Saturday, I believe that it is rock solid. I have an abundance of resident programs----a tip-off to my age----which probably conflicts with GiMeSpace and they are essential to my work.

Jorrit IJpenberg Thanks Mitchell. Yes, in rare cases programs can conflict with the desktop extender, but it is really rare. If you have many resident programs then it can take quite a while to figure out which one is conflicting.

Mitchell User You have been so fantastically responsive that I have closed all of my resident programs in advance of reinstalling your software. I will report back once I give it another test drive; meanwhile, if anyone has the remotest interest in this program please download it and test it. If it works for me I am going to purchase the license. It's less than nine bucks for goodness sakes

Jorrit IJpenberg Hi Mitchell, yes that is correct, windows doesn't see your monitors as 2 separate desktops but as one continuous desktop. So that is why windows seamless scroll between the monitors.
