Files Pro [CLOSED]

Post by don » Tue Nov 24, 2015 10:35 am

Good day.
Do I need Files Pro to be installed to continue to run full version of Files?
The reason I am asking is that I am starting everything through spotlight. And occasionally it find Files Pro quicker than Files.

A bit annoying. Would like to get rid of Files Pro completely.

Hi don,

Currently the existence of Pro version on hdd is checked upon every start of Full version.
Perhaps I should make some "activation" mechanism in the future, but now there're a lot of tasks with higher importance than that.

No issues.
Thank you.

Is there a workaround that you could think of, that would not reveal anything of importance yet would allow me to overcome this little problem?
I do not know - like renaming the executable of sorts?

Don,

What if simply exclude Files Pro directory from Spotlight search? :)
AFAIK there's such option there.

Mike.

Side note: I wonder how important is Mac App Store when targetting pro users anyway? There's been quite a few big tools leaving the store recently:
Just a food for thought for the future.

Good idea - though I was not able to find how to exclude a single app from the search.

Or what could be sold is just the license key, if required for one or another reason. With the autoupdate built in - what is the benefit beyond accounting and license tracking?
