If an error message with a red cross appears during the Webmaker installation, then it means that the downloaded file is corrupted and you need to download it again.
We strongly recommend using a program like GetRight or GoZilla when downloading big files. These programs monitor the download process and resume it, in case of failure, from the point where it stopped. These two programs are free and can be downloaded from any download site like tucows or cnet.
Another solution is to download the Webmaker setup file from alternate
servers which are published at our download page.
The Webmaker is designed for two types of applications: offline 3D
applications and online 3D applications. Online applications are 3D applications
that run within the browser. Any other type of application is considered
"offline", even if it is using Multiplaying or any other online
The documentation section at our web site is the place to learn how to create online applications (like 3D web sites) and offline applications (like 3D games).
The section contains two books : "3D programming for windows" - this books will teach you how to create offline applications, and "Programming 3D web sites and Internet Applications" will teach you all you need to know about building online applications.

In addition please note that the best place to get help with exporting issues is our forum where hundreds of developers share their knowledge. Most of the developers use these converters and are expert on the subject.
The most updated information regarding licensing is our licensing page
There are 2 license types:
All the products at our download page are free, except for the 3D Webmaker
which is given on a trial basis which expires after a limited time.
These products, like the WorldBuilder 3.9 and the developer studios, are older versions of our products and can be used for free, without purchasing a license.
During the Webmaker installation , you are prompted to enter your serial
number - this is not the license number. It is the serial number that you
received by email after filling a short form. When launching the program for the
first time, a dialog box appears and you are prompted to enter your license
The license details are your name, email, company name, domain name and license number - the license number looks like this: 1234567.12345678 .
You must be connected to the Internet at this stage, since the verification of your license is done online.
Make sure you type EXACTLY the same license details that you received by mail (you can copy them from the email message and paste them into the dialog box).
We are aware that sometimes (for example if one buys a new
computer) one needs to reinstall the Webmaker and perform
the licensing again. However, the licensing will be blocked if someone tries to
license his program more than 3 times. If you have licensed the Webmaker before
and now the licensing process fails then probably this is the reason why.
Contact email@example.com in case you need to license the program again.

forum, where hundreds of developers share their knowledge.
