    I am hoping someone can help me with an issue I am having. I have a legacy version of Maxim DL v4 with disk and licence number that I purchased several years ago. I am now trying to install the software onto a new laptop windows 10 computer. After installing the software I enter the required information with license number but the OK button remains undetectable. Any ideas on what is going on would be appreciated.
    Regards,
    Joe Schaefer

    MaxIm DL 4.0 is from around 15+ years ago and is no longer supported.
    The current software version is 6.20.
    Here's what you've missed out on:

    If you go here:
    http://diffractionlimited.com/product/maxim-dl/
    scroll down a bit, and there is an "Upgrade" tab.
    Fill it in, and you may be entitled do a discount fo upgrading.

    If you are on a really really tight budget, make sure to COPY (CTRL-A, CTRL-C) the license text and try PASTING (CTRL-V) into the licensing dialog. That might work.

    That version dates back to like 2005 if not earlier. I would be very surprised if it ran at all on Windows 10
    . Last update was 4.62 in 2008.
