I have tried (and tried) to make passkey lite actually work, it is installed, but clicking on 'shortcut' gets me here:
Clicking on lite free does nothing, period.
"Detail" info button brings up their store.
"Activate" wants a password
"secure order" & "renew" takes me to their store
What am I not doing right?
edit (Nothing shows up in the notification area)
edit: From website: "Double click Passkey 9 to run it. And then, Passkey will minimize itself into the system tray." <-this does NOT happen. "Nothing happens"

Others with same issue, it does not do what web page says. The "start dvdfab passkey" button stays greyed out.
Yes, the 'lite free' is hilighted.
Quote from forum: "I needed to activate (register in the DVDfab site and put email/password when you hit activation).
You needn't have purchased any product."
"What password"? you get/give one at purchase. But not for free. The instructions (pretty simple for lite) do not mention a password,
click on shortcut & wait 13 seconds, etc etc.

I read this topic since I had previously installed a 'free lifetime' version but lost the program when my SSD died. Not then having the email with the key I only now have a trial(expired)/free version.
Also have the same issue >> greyed out button. But having read the other topic this is what is intended there. When I originally installed the s/w I had to register on the site and provide email etc to get the key. Once I logged back in to my account, I was able to start the free version of passkey. Logged out, I could not start the program.
Not a very satisfying situation. After all a 'free' program should act on its own without having to be directly connected to an 'account'.
Trust this helps.
Edit: Just tried the above again. Although as I described worked last night, it is not working now. Even though I am logged in to my account. In fact I still fail to see why being logged in would activate a program that does not have any log in settings with it. So its back to the drawing board. Or buy the darn thing.

I tried installing the latest trial version of DVDFab Passkey on a computer where I had never previously installed Passkey. The trial version includes Passkey Lite plus a 1-month trial of the full Passkey package. After loading the program, if I select one of the versions on the list, that version runs when I click "Start DVDFab Passkey". If I do nothing, whatever version is highlighted runs after 12 seconds. Unfortunately I will have to wait a month to find out what happens after the trial expires.

Well, I found out my problem with pk lite. XP is no longer supported. I dragged out my Tosh laptop (its been behind the door for 8mo-1 year), powered it up & thought wtf??? Anyway I remembered I had cloned the hdd & did the free W-10 upgrade. Anyway, I installed pk lite no hassles & ripped two dvds. (why are laptop cdroms soooo slow?) This laptop has an 'esata' socket on it, I plugged the hdd from my 'ripping' computer via the esata. The issue, not really a problem is, I allus rip to 'files' in case I would need 'fixvts'. I used dvdshrink to not shrink it but 'full disk' to ISO. It would not play on neither my computer or my media player. tried imgburn to convert to iso, it didnt work either. They both play the 'vob files'
What might be the reason for this??
Any other progs to convert vob's to iso's anyone might suggest?
My media player does NOT play MKV files/containers, , , ,
An iso, as one file, copies continuously, whereas vobs, being many files, copy (it seems randomly) (& because of this, not necessarily in any consecuitive order, but all over the drive) & I occaisionally notice a slight pause as heads sometimes take 'longer' to seek/move to next 'vob file'.
Like I said, I can live with vob's, , , , but prefer iso's.Cranky Old Man

dvdshrink you can output to iso file.
also you don't say if your using the free or paid version of dvdfab10. only the paid version can rip to iso, the free version cannot - https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/286111-how-do-you-make-an-iso-file-using-dvdfab-hd-decrypter
