To Millieminx ......... I've encountered a very similar problem. See my recent posting at www.smartftp.com/forums/Installation-pr ... 13526.html
I've found that clicking on the OK button at the bottom of the expiration warning window just closes the window without starting SmartFTP, but if I keep on trying to start SmartFTP then I eventually get the licence reminder window rather than the expiration warning window, and SmartFTP seems to start okay from the licence reminder window. Somewhat wierd ..... and far from satisfactory ..... but at least it lets me use SmartFTP for the moment.
I tried downloading and installing v2.5, with limited success. I got the message about the missing smartftp.msi file, but managed to get round it somehow by uninstalling SmartFTP and having another go at installing v2.5. Mind you, my computer's Program Files folder now seems to have both a SmartFTP Client
folder and a SmartFTP Client 2.0
folder, so I may have a rather screwed up SmartFTP installation now.
Can anyone suggest how to get all this sorted out?
