Albion StopNow! FAQ

Where can I find out more about RSI?

The answer to this question grew so long that we had to move it to a separate page

What Should I Look For in an RSI Software Product?

We moved this to another page too.

What are the System Requirements?

  • Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10

Where is the tray icon?

In Windows 7 Microsoft realized that things in the task bar were getting out of hand. Every software publisher and his dog wanted to put their program's icon in the task bar at the bottom of the screen, even if there was no legitimate reason for it being there. Consequently Windows 7 requires that you select which tray icons are visible. Right click on the task bar and you can select the Albion StopNow! green smiley face icon.

In Windows 8 Microsoft tried doing without a task bar entirely. This was a mistake. If you are unfortunate enough to have Windows 8 you should seriously consider upgrading to Windows 10.

Why does the rest period never seem to end?

For the rest period (red icon) to end, you have to actually stop all keyboard and mouse activity for the duration of the rest period. Every time you move the mouse or strike a key, the timer is reset and the rest period starts again at the beginning. This is intentional: you have to take a real rest break for it to count.

Can I get a free upgrade to Albion StopNow 3.11?

If the first part of your product version number (that would be 3 if your version number is 3.5) matches the current version (3.11), you can update to the latest version by simply downloading the latest trial version and using your existing license key.

Otherwise, if you purchased your copy after 26 January, 2017, please contact technical support for instructions.

Note that the latest version may not run on older operating systems: check the system requirements before upgrading.
