Title: CS7 Demo Version
Post by: shandibrinkman on March 30, 2017, 10:32:29 AM

We know you all have been anxiously awaiting the release of CreativeStudio 7.0 this month. Unfortunately, we have had unexpected challenges that mean the software will not be ready this March as previously planned. This new version of software is much different than any previous version of CS with so many new features and improvements. The addition of Pattern Management meant software programming changes on almost every level. Because this has led to unexpected delays we have made the very difficult decision to delay the full release of the software.
 The decision to not release in March was not made lightly. But, as a company, we would never want to release a software version that is not completely ready for you. We value you too much as customers. Your time, your quilts and your customers are too important to risk the chance that software might not work just as it should.

 Today, we are releasing to you a demo version of the software that can be operated in Stand Alone Mode (SAM). You will be able to operate this on any computer but you will not be able to use it to stitch out on your Statler. We know many of you are excited about CS7 and many have classes scheduled. This demo version will allow you to learn and become familiar with CreativeStudio 7.0. CreativeStudio 7 has so many great new features we are sure you are going to love it. We hope you will enjoy getting to know the software more through this demo version and will be as excited as we are for the full release.

my trial version of cs7 expired, I asked on facebook, they said to uninstall and reload. I went to the gammill site, downloaded, but when trying to open (after extracting) I get the same message. Version has expired. So what is up folks?

Hi there,
Service is in CreativeStudio 7.
To get it open, you'll have to reset the date on your computer to a time when the Demo was valid.
Then you can go into Service, Technical Support, Reset CS Configuration.
That will force you to shut down CS.
Then you can reset your date to the correct one.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
You can contact me at
Thank you,
Lis Groe
