Do I have a warez Smart Slider installation?

If you aren't sure that your Smart Slider came from a legally purchased source, follow this test to figure it out. You will have a warez installation, if all these cases match what you see on your admin area:

Test 1

On Smart Slider's Dashboard, check the info popup. That should say, that your license is active.

Test 2

While trying to import a template slider, you cannot. You receive an error message, that the license is not registered on the current website:

or that your license is not active:

Test 3

You cannot update Smart Slider Pro. While trying to update it, you receive one of the following messages:

  • Update failed: The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature
  • Update failed: Unknown error, please write an email to with the following status: [any status]

Test 4

Go to the Help center and press Test connection.If you are able to connect to our server without issues, you will receive a successful connection message.

If all 4 tests matched your case, you have a warez Smart Slider. In this case you could do a final test:

Test 5

Within the info popup, deactivate your license.

With a warez version you won't be able to. The info popup will keep on displaying "Your license is active".
