It could be that your computer has additional programs providing internet security besides Windows Firewall. If that is the case, please give bonusprint Photo books permission to connect to the internet.You can use the manual to your internet security program for this.

Only proceed to step 3 if the "Allow another app…" button is not being shown.

Once you see apc.exe in the list of programs, you will know we have been white listed and you can go ahead and place your order.
4. If after having adjusted the firewall / antivirus and installed the latest version of our software, you still experience problems with placing your order, we would recommend connecting your computer directly to the modem via a cable, instead of using WiFi.
Please note: if you are using Kaspersky, Norton Symantec antivirus or any other additional antivirus, you need to adjust it as well (for Norton antivirus adjust the 'Web access protection' also). Additionally, we advise you to temporarily disconnect a ‘proxy server’ if you have one.
