    So I see Blue Iris is sold via Amazon for a good price ($44.98) via Amcrest but some of the reviews claim it's got problems. Seems Amcrest puts some extra stuff in there that keeps pushing ads and re-registration often. NO WAY am I going that route! Blue Iris sells directly at $59.99. Then this site sells it for $49.99! I would like to get from here as I know it probably helps support the site in some way. Can anyone tell me ....would this site also have the added "nonsense-ware?"

    there is nothing added to the blue iris offer purchase from this site in fact you can download the software directly from the blue iris website and use the key you get when you buy here.
    To be fair amcrest doesn't add anything to the software either.

    Yes the site benefits.
    Amcrest might email ads but they dont control the software.

    Good choice.

    Try asking for help from Amcrest.

    Then try asking for help here at ipct.com.

    Then compare your results/response.

    Not necessarily . I purchased a license for my daughters setup from the store here back in December and was never emailed a key. I had taken a screenshot of the pop up page after I bought. I could not get that key to work and messaged Fenderman who directed me to my orders and I had to copy , paste the key from there to get it to work. I never did get a email from the store.

    Purchased here on Jan 12 2019 and I luckily have saved copy of invoice/receipt with key as when I go into store and view order all I get is "No order has been made yet."

    Then you weren't logged in when you placed the order. What is your order #, I will link it to your account.

    Regardless, I associated that order with your account (confirmed via matching email addresses). You can now see it in your order history :)

    Thanks for your purchase!

    I can't speak for Amcrest but I bought my key from here. I've been reading this site nonstop for about two weeks. Learned so much so far.

    I bought, and downloaded from the site store for a install at friends house a few days ago. She received the email with key and order info right away. I always print to pdf the confirmation pages too. Thanks to the guys running site and store for great price, and for the download being the latest version.

    I like to print and tape the key to the system or when I am feeling neat, print it on a label.
