I had the trial version and it worked perfectly. I am running windows7, ie9, have quad core, 6 gigs ram, 700 gigs on hard drive and also seem to have two registration keys. When I download the windows program and install everything seem to be going well. I enter either key and the program does not work. Nothing works when clicked. I run a troubleshootaing program and get the message incompatible application. Do you have any suggestions to make it work. I tried running as administrator, but that did nothing.

Same here!!
My Seamless Studio stopped working! Seems I have the exact same problem as Peaches6 (see below) I also have Windows 7, latest updates, and it worked well for a while on same PC when I first installed it, but then started crashing. The crashes boot me off Windows and force a restart. They occur most often when I'm working with streaming video, and the crashes stop when I uninstall. When I reinstall they start again and with increased in frequency. Now I have nothing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, Seamless and my task manager say the program is installed and running. When I click, there is no visual.. Please help!

Hey i am having the same trouble called support and no one answers to fix it. Emailed at least five times for help still no answer from colorlovers support. I think a reputation is at stake here.

Hi MJ,

Mike responded to your messages Aug 8th & Nov 6th. Sorry you haven't received a faster response on your recent messages. Unfortunately there is a bug in the AIR platform that we use to build & install Seamless Studio and it has really jammed us up. Because we're unable to fix this problem right now, we'll refund any purchases of SS.

I've issued refunds for your purchase.

Sorry for the trouble and thank you for your support.

I think going with AIR was a mistake. Adobe discontinued Linux support a while ago. (I installed it, but only after jumping through hoops. It also worked with WINE OK.) Of course, not being a programmer, I don't have any better ideas. :/

This kinda sux... I'm having the same issue.

I don't want any money back - I want to make templates. I would buy it again in another form or format if it exists. I was never creative before this site and I must be addicted because I am really feeling the loss of my Seamless Studio.

Is there a pre-Adobe Air version somewhere?

Are there other ways to design templates for CL?

It was always built in air. Not sure if we can find an AIR version pre the bug that killed us.

And you an always use Seamless Lite on our website, but it has limited capacity.

Sorry.

creed

We can always use Seamless Lite? Wow.

May I have a refund?

Shockingly enough, I got the program to work without crashing on Linux.

The deb packages I tracked down were for version 2.6.0.19170. Is that any help? (Edit: OK, that's apparently a really old version, so I'm not sure how much help this is.)

ereseigh

Where did you find the old versiion? What did you do to get it working?

Adobe archives older versions on their web page but I don't know if you're going to need the version I used. I wouldn't recommend downloading one if you have other programs that use AIR.

I really can't help much given that I use Linux rather than Mac or Windows.

Yesterday the seamless studio stopped letting me import custom shapes. I was wondering if there was a limit of shapes you can import? I tried deleting a few and then adding the new ones. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it did not.

Today, I cannot get to or see the studio at all. I see the icon on the task bar, but nothing shows up. I want to uninstall, but then I will lose all of my shapes. Is there a way to save them?

duchess1853

Also it would be great if we could make separate folders for our custom shapes. Instead of having them all under My Shapes

How does one accquire a refund? And why is it still being provided if its failure is inevitable?

@WastedStalker, drop us a note at http://www.colourlovers.com/contact and we'll process your refund. And we've stopped providing the software.

I just spent 5 hours working on a complex pattern, saving every few minutes because SS is buggy and crashes all the time. And when I tried to open the file I had been working on, it had only saved the very first version (from the first 5 minutes). I'm going to cry.

ereseigh

I feel your pain! I know that specific heartbreak very well!!
browser or desktop version?

@Architela: This has happened to me a lot. One way to get around it (for me, anyway) is to rename the file and each time you save it. I've also learned to save each version to my desktop instead of to the seamless folder. This way if you have a crash, you have at least some of your previous work to rebuild on. Hope this works for you.

ereseigh

good advice about renaming! I do that as well. When I save and then reopen a file, I need to give it time to reload all the shapes, but that's been my only issue lately. I do all my seamless on my desktop and never upgrade to Adobe Air.

If you propose, I will support your shaming campaign so long as we can make branding irons, heat them up, and burn the imprints into the foreheads of those an angry mob decides are offenders.

Intellectual property claims, whether exact duplicates, are absolutely irrelevant given the nature of this site. Why in the world would you post things to a site like this hoping people, all over the world, would respect your rights? Some of them live in countries that do not have to by the way.

And how have you, save for your ego, been damaged by all this? You have lost millions of euros or dollars through plagarism on this site? Sorry, but you just seem too emotionally charged to be rational.

This is plain and simple, dangerous and stupid. Beyond that, as I have said before, you could really hurt somebody if you are wrong in your witch hunt. It is usually much to late to say sorry to someone when its over because, you know? They would be damaged goods from your crusade.

PS. Sorry I could not follow this discussion every minute for two weeks. Sometimes I have other places to visit and other sites on which to spend my time and attention. I really appreciated your observation though so I read all the comments over the two weeks. I think I am up to speed.

PSS. Shaming anyone builds the memories they will remember later; even if they survive the shaming, hazing, shunning or whatever you want to call it. Such encounters shape their lives and attitudes forever and always. They might forgive, but they will always remember.

If you are talking about me, I am flattered. I have never been called both at the same time as I remember. Thank you so much!

If you are done breathing fire out your nose, and can ever possibly calm down? Could you bring yourself to listen to those trying to help you in this? May I suggest something to you? With fire extinguisher in hand? And a dragon slayer on the roof of my condo building?

If you are not already a member, think about joining the Graphic Artists Guild. It is one of the best artists' rights orgs in the US. Members get all sorts of benefits including legal advice (to a point) in a pinch. Lots of pattern repeat designers are members. You might get more enthusiasm there but not for a shaming campaign.

That website is brilliant, Deslyn! Thank you for sharing it with us.

One website I use frequently is encycolorpedia.com. You might want to input your color there and then check out the pentadic or hexadic sections. This will give you different colors all around the color wheel that complement the original color in some way, and each color is of the exact same saturation and lightness levels, which is what I believe you're looking for. You would want to alter the "S" and "V", but not the "H". Here is an example of the color you gave here:

Cool! But no patterns on this site offer graphics like in the original Batman series. Wow! Pow! and all that in starbursts and captions. They were what made Batman and Robin, the TV series great.

Would we be in trouble if we used any of those patterns? If not, I would totally be in for ideas, starting with "Holy snack cakes, Batman" if a new thread were started.

The sad but true point I was trying to get across is that proving someone stole your intellectual property is really tough and infringement suits, because they require so much "prior art" research and their components are so subjective? In spite of what you have heard, a very small percentage ever go to court. Yeah sure, Apple and Samsung are spending billions pis***g on each other. Want take a leap and guess who is ultimately paying for it all?

However, defaming or shaming someone on a public site like this? Easy to file the suit and with a slizzard attorney for the filing party, you are trapped. You have to defend yourself, even if the claims are off the wall "batsh*t" nutty.

From some degree of personal experience in these matters, but with nice contracts supporting my side, they were always no win---for either side. And my contract and intellectual property lawyers were really competent and good. They billed hours $375/hour though. A couple times I had to pay them to just respond to the complaint and just go to court, sit around for hours for the case to be called, and spend 10 minutes in front of the judge getting a dismissal.

Again, eighteyes, I don't see this thread going anywhere helpful for you. I completely support your emotions and passion for this issue. Just be careful.
