MainType Professional Edition - Bad Hang

Post by heathert »

Hi! I got a pop-up notification with sound that said something like "It looks like you like Main Type why don't you tell your friends or something." I like Main Type a lot but I don't want the app telling me to tell my friends. ;) And then it tried to open some other window (a browser, perhaps), which led nowhere and just said "Error" top left with a blank screen. I tried to close it, but it kept on coming back, so I finally had to use Windows Task Manager to close it... =/

(Also, it would be great if the about screen allowed for copying so I don't have to try and remember a whole bunch of numbers. ;) )

ETA: Just did it again! Got a screen shot before it got stuck:

Use a firewall program such as Tinywall or the built in Windows firewall to block the program from having internet access. Then it should go will go away. Paid programs shouldn't bug you like this.

We realize nagging people is not nice, but to survive in this industry we need some exposure.

The issue you encountered is very awkward and we have not been able to reproduce it. If it happens again, let us know, preferably with a precise step-by-step that allows us to reproduce it.
