The Camtasia crack from PB brought me here, and I excitedly spent 6 hours making my first video! Unfortunately, none of the forum posts on how to get around the key check worked. I've tried everything - the RegInfo.ini updates, setting it to read only, adding the hosts updates. I even tried unplugging my internet when opening the program. Nothing I do let's me export my project without the watermark.

Does anyone else have any ideas? Have there been any new steps required to get this working as intended? I really appreciate any help people can provide. Thank you so much for your support!

Just a guess but once Camtasia gets a sniff of the Internet during the install, the damage has been done. Doesn't really matter what you do from that point on, the crack won't work. This is true of many cracked programs.

From the remarks at 1337X:
"The crack works if you make RegInfo read-only. HERE'S the odd part: I get a message saying it couldn't register and it's still on trial mode, BUT the program works fine like it's registered. (No watermark on the video, and I can edit and export the file no problem.)
So if you get a message saying the registration didn't work, don't give up right away! It might still work fine.
I don't blame people for being confused if they get that message, and the kneejerkers playing "internet tough guy" in this thread aren't helping."

So you might try uninstalling using Revo and hoping that clears all the info out but it may not.
Good rule of thumb, ALWAYS disconnect from the Internet until you have the install completed and added all the addition items you need to install. Sometimes you only get one chance. The only hope at that point is perhaps rolling back Windows to a time before you tried to do the initial install. It never hurts to do a registry backup before trying an install like this as well.

DVDR_Dog, thank you so much for your reply! I was able to figure it out and get it working today, and I wanted to post here in case anyone else falls into the same trap I did.

"%programdata%\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 9\" is NOT the same as "C:\Program Files\TechSmith\Camtasia 9". My mind glossed over this, especially when I found the Program Files sub-folder by instinct. You can easily get to the right location by holding down the Windows key, pressing R, pasting"%programdata%\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 9\" in the Open box, and clicking OK.

I think this tip, DVDR_Dog's tip, and all the other tips that you can find easily using the search feature on this website can get you going with Camtasia. Thanks again DVDR_Dog and ThumperTM for all your hard work! It definitely doesn't go unappreciated!
