EXTREME YMMV Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X10.5 Full Version $24.99

Ok guys this is EXTREME EXTREME YMMV! I just scored Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X10.5 Full version (not upgrade) for $24.99. Here's how it... "happened". One day I right after I exited OverWatch back to desktop, I got a pop up saying that I can get VideoStudio Ultimate X10.5 for only $24.99. After I clicked on it a larger screen came up where I could make the purchase... however for some reason after only like 30 seconds the screen disappeared. Today I had more pop ups but for the black Friday pricing. So this time I used PROCESS EXPLORER to show which process was hosting this and I found "CUH.EXE" with the "/t" flag. This process was listed as follows:
"c:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\CUH\v2\CUH.exe" /t
So anyhow I then closed it and manually ran it from the command prompt and BEHOLD!! I GOT THE $24.99 OFFER!! This time I jumped on it. I already had 9.0 freely upgraded to 9.5 and this was the I guess the "helper" or updater program which for some reason also randomly posts deals? Anyhow I took some screenshots. If anyone has 9.x version of this app just try running it like I did. I went to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\CUH\v2>" in the command prompt and then just typed in CUH.EXE /t and hit enter. It took like 3 tries and after I made the purchase I tried again but it wouldn't work so I don't know how it know what deals to post and when but for anyone who wants to try it. See attached images!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, this is VERY EXTREMELY YMMV!!!!!! This first happened to me in September and I just figured it out now.

I don't even have that folder on my machine with VideoStudio Ultimate X9.5. Strange. Anyway, would love this deal, but my popup has only ever given me $40. Congratulations. You got a great deal!

Maybe try doing a repair on the inhalation? Then see if it's there.

I saw a similar offer pop up recently, and I screenshotted it immediately. Tried to actually check out, and no deal. I chatted with Corel customer support, and because I had the screenshot, they honored the price. So, if you see such an offer, screenshot before doing anything else.

I agree. I will also add that this $25 upgrade is also working on Corel Paintshop Pro X9 to upgrade to Paintshop Pro 2018 Ultimate. The pop up window is buggy as hell. I tried to order it yesterday but the order didn't go through. I then came here and read the op's post. I tried running that CUH file, but admit I really didn't understand the /t switch or running programs from the cmd line that much either. I just figured it would pop up again today. Sure enough this morning it did, and I bought it.

I'm wondering now if I find an old version of Video Studio and install the trial version, if that would trigger the pop up for that program? I haven't been able to find an old version for download yet.

Attached are my screen shots for Paint Shop Pro 2018 Ultimate.

So if you have older versions of these products installed and want to upgrade, make sure you opt in for special offers. The options should be under HELP > MESSAGE PREFERENCES .

Thank you for this post. I also got the $15 VideoStudio X9 Ultimate deal a while back and while launching I received the 75% discount offer right away. The offer implies upgrade but the purchase page provides the full download version for $24.99 + tax. Great deal since it includes bonus features.
