for European and American users:

  1. Add Bandicam program into your Firewall to block all its Internet connections (for network verification, or it will always annoy you with prompt “You are not registered. You need to purchase a Bandicam license from us.“, while, this does not affect the portableware’s work at all)
  2. Go to “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\“, open the ‘hosts‘ file with Notepad and add the following lines to block its network verification in an additional way (or block this application with your firewall):
    • bandicam.com
    • ssl.bandisoft.com
    • cert.bandicam.com (# shielding automatic updates)
  3. Done, just run Bandicam as administrator every time you use it

for Asian and other country users:

  • Just make sure to  run Bandicam as administrator every time you use it. That’s all.

*** Better way to run Bandicam as administrator is to right click “BandicamPortable.exe” -> Properties -> Compatibility -> check the “Run this program as an administrator” -> OK

*** Bandicam is very hard to portablize, just the same as many software from Asian countries.

// Prompts //
