Can't Open Desktop Version Of Photoshow...


DeannaD

Question

I try to open the desktop version of photoshow and I keep being told that "Cannot Authenticate to the Roxio Photoshow Service. This error occurs most often when the local windows date and time are incorrectly set. Please make sure your computer's date, time and timezone are all set correctly and try again." My computer's date, time and timezone are all set correctly. This error is really frustrating!! Anyone know how to fix this????

Mac or PC. The desktop version doesn't run on a MAC.

 

Try re-downloading the software and install it over what you have now. Try it again. It sounds like the servers may have been down. Hopefully they are now up and running again.

I am having the same problem. I have just tried to install in Windows 8 and get the comment "Local Date and Time are incorrectly set"

I have a PC and the software was working fine for the last 3 months (I installed it in March and have the premium) but now it doesn't want to work. My computer's date and time is correct and going in and applying changes does not do anything to correct the issue!

I get the same thing. post-97-0-26367700-1372519811_thumb.jpg

 

When I go to the website the security certificate has expired. I click continue to the website (not recommended) and I can signin.

 

It's been reported to a board administrator.

I have both Windows 8 computer and Windows Vista and the problem is the same for both computers (it has previously been working on Windows Vista)

 

Michael, I am using Chrome as a browser, If I go to the PhotoShow site, I get the pop up window that asks me if I want to contiue. If I select to continue, I get to the site. Have you tried a different browser?

 

Edit: I just tried IE9 and I was able to continue onto the web site if I selected that option. Since you know it is safe, you can select that option.

 

FireFox has different language that says essentially the same thing. I didn't try Safari.

 

Do you get the same thing and are you able to into the site using the option to allow?

 

If you have the desktop version, can you get in from there rather than from a browser?

Same problem on Windows 7 today 7/3/2016.

 

 

Which problem was that --- registering or using? Do you have a membership? Did you download the latest version? PC or MA?.

 

You have left too many issues unsaid so it is difficult to provide a fix.
