    I mentioned this in the thread about the GAOTD offer but it probably got missed in all the "excitement". (And while on the subject, congratulations once again for sorting out the problem,)

    I've noticed that the licensed (ie GAOTD) version of RVS 2010 has created three new cookies that look remarkably like some kind of licensing data. Is this actually their function?

    I ask this question because I normally configure my browsers to clear out history and cookies when they're closed down and run regular clean-ups of my system to remove anything else that gets missed.

    If Returnil developers have indeed decided to use cookies to store licensing information, I suggest that it was a questionable decision and that cookies are a less-than-ideal place to store such information.

    Hi Mike,
    Registration data is controlled by the server and not by cookies on your computer. When you register the server will assign you a license and then updates your copy of RVS. RVS then stores this information internally.

    If you have visited our website, you may have cookies related to that visit...

    This is why I use returnil under sandboxbie-- all is gone with a reboot!!! Including all and any cookies!!!

    If you offer a child a cookie or a juicy steak they will choose a dried up cookie all the time.

    Let's not be like children and take the steak instead!!!

    True, but your Returnil license should also get wiped, so less than optimal, IMO.

    Since I'm here, I think it's worth mentioning that the cookies weren't related to any website visit, hence my original post. However, it seems that the product worked ok even after the cookies had been wiped, so the matter is not worth pursuing further.
