    Hello!

    i got the last licence number om may,10th, now i just repartioned my
    harddisk, and is it really a matter of fact that i do have,once again,
    a new lns-code and that i need again a new licence number?

    it is a quite seure licensing-system for soft4ever but is it the true
    i do have to ask every 1 or 2 weeks for a new licence number
    everytime i reconfigure my one and only pc?

    The license is unique to the installation of windows... So yes, whenever you do a reformat and reinstall windows, you will have to get a new license as your code will be different. Usually you can just contact Frederic with your purchase info, reason for needing new license, and your new code...

    HTH ;) ...

    Hi,

    AFAIK, this key is generated from (system/booting?) hard drive properties: I've formatted/reinstalled quite a few times since licencing, no problem. I've recently changed my rig (mobo, cpu, ram, gfx, psu...) and again no problem because I'm using the same HD ;). Other possible source of code generation: the setup executable, but I've always used the same (with md5 check), because I got a backup harddrive.

    Just my 0.02$

    Strange, as the few times I have reformatted and reinstalled windows on the same machine (with same hardware and same windows key), I have ended up with a new code and had to request a new license...

    PS: hope Frederic can enlighten this...
