I have been unable to download that software. I fill out the information for the free trial, and they can never get the link to my email. Is there another free program I could use?
Expert:  Richard replied 7 months ago.
No, its only this program as its their format.I tested and received an email no problem, so maybe its going to your Spam folder? Check there else call them on 1-***-***-**** (option 2).
