I dont know if this is in the right place, but i could find an appropriate place, and since it's about the internet...

I have tried to get an account on the Corel website so i can get Corel Paint Shop Pro X from the site.
I have got an account now but it isnt validated by my e mail. I get an e mail asking me to click on a link to validate and then i do, and it shows a page from Corel, saying that the account activation failed and to check i have the right address, which i do.
I dont know if anyone else has got an account on Corel, but if you have, did you experience that problem? Or is anyone experiencing it?


Thanks.

It was over a secure connection, yeah.
Anyway, i never got it to work for me, but i did it on a friend's computer using her e-mail and it worked fine, now i have an account. Still puzzles me how it never worked on my PC, but i came to the conclusion that (although it never said anything about it) the site didnt accept hotmail/yahoo e-mail addresses, since my friend's wasnt a hotmail/yahoo e-mail, and i also tried other e-mails of mine, all being hotmail, which does support my theory.

Thanks anyway :tazz:
