After testing the free product for a few days, I bought the $50 photo manager last night. Immediately upon downloading, the FaceID program stopped working, reporting a RunTime Error and on the screen, the following: "You recently worked on the FaceID. These changes are still being saved..."
At that point, the program froze and shut down.
I started with a simple restart. That did not work.
I uninstalled and re-installed all the software. That did not work.
I uninstalled and re-installed Microsoft Run Time. There are no old versions now on my computer, and only the latest ones from Microsoft.
I tried to run the program in safe mode, to prevent conflicts with other software. That did not work either.
I then started poking around Magix's discussion boards and found that I am not the only one with this problem. Unfortunately, I have not seen much on the discussion boards that give me optimism.
My computer is relatively new, and has no trouble at all running any other software.
I am not in the habit of spending $50 on software that does not work even for one minute.
