    Contact the vendor to help. Wilders is not exactly forum for crackers. :rolleyes:

    (P.S. I would never pay for an application with such protection. These are just penalizing the legit customers who paid $$$$ for the stuff, warez folks will just crack the thing and move on.)

    I don´t understand the P.S.

    Many paid applications use this and similar protections. And cracked apps are not paid for.

    Well, too bad you do not understand. You would not be in such trouble if you did since you would have avoided similar products like plague. Basing this HW-related protection on an individual component such as HDDs that are replaced on common basis due to capacity reasons, storage consolidation or simply because of the old-fashioned HW failure is particularly idiotic and hostile to legitimate customers.

    As suggested, contacting vendor is the best course of action.
