Just got that one Aquarium screensaver, the one where the fish swim and you here bubbles. Really nice, except for one thing. When the column of bubbles is turned on, I just see a white space where the bubbles would be animating at. And I know it's not specific to this computer alone, my dad put it on his iBook as well and samething. Is this just a bug in the software or what?

Thanks :)

Hey, I also have an aquarimum software too.. Did you get Marine Aquarium?
If so, I had the same problem too, make sure you got the latest update from their website. It fixed my probs :)

I love that program too. I sometimes download the demo, go to prefs and press demo, then left it up. :p I'm thinking of finally giving them the money they deserve and get a full version so I don't have to go to the prefs to "demo" it every time.

Yes it is Marine Aquarium.

Exactly how do you update it? I see a button link for there website and updates in the Options window. Is that it?

Thanks again.

Here's the FAQ on the program. The very first question talks about your problem:

Cool, thanks. Quick question: When I download the upgrade, how will it know I previously had the older version? In other words, could someone not buy the app, and download this update for free? Because when you download/install the update, the older version and it's prefrence files are trashed. Does that make sense?

The program will ask for your keycode the first time you start up. Otherwise it'll enter into demo mode.

Keycode? I checked the CD and packaging, but I don't see a keycode anywhere. When I first installed it, it said it registered from a CD.

Have you registered the copy? If you did, then you should have the keycode. If you lost it, go to the site and request a forgotten keycode.

If you haven't, then seems you're screwed... Encore Software is no longer in business, and you can't register your copy anymore. I suggest you call them and see what they can do.

Oh wait hold on, I just read in the Register pane, it say's: When upgrades are available go to www.SereneScene.com. Your CD will serve as your Keycode.

So I guess I have to have the CD in during the download/upgrade....? Or it'll probably ask for the CD when I go into the System Prefrences > Screen Savers, it the CD is not in yet.

Thanks again for your help :)
