Yeah... I have no other choice. Strangely I feel happy anyway, dunno why.
Thanks. I just updated my old giveaway version. I actually used the old version a few hours ago for the first time in months.
You can update it with any old (past one year,atleast) giveaway license, just make sure to backup the options.ini first ;P

Thanks a lot mate. Later on, I'm going to try building a WinPE running as free, next as paid.
WinPE creation is available on both Unregistered and Pro versions. Seemingly, the program takes and utilizes host OS files to create the PE, hence it can result a 7 or 8.1 or 10 PE.
Unregistered creates an unregistered PE too. As expected.
Pro (registered) creates a registered PE too. As expected.
Amusingly, ParititionGuru x86 can create a dual UEFI/MBR bootable pendrive IF it's FAT32 formatted.
Thanks, good to know
