    Oh well my Beta version of Online Armour for Vista has finally expired, what or how can i get a new one. really I should not pay for this because this is still in Beta mode, so really charging would be unfair in my opinion.

    That may be so but that is the way it is set up. It;s their ball if you want to play it has to be by their rules.

    Why would it be illegal since the beta key was free. They have a set amount of time they think is suffucent to see how there product works and when it expires they figure you should be able to decide if you like it or not. It is possible they might extend your key since it is beta if you contact them.

    Hi Albinoni

    What user name are you using over at Online Armor. If you have been a regular contributor to the beta forums as you've tested, you should have no problem getting another key. On the other hand if you haven't provided any feedback you might have been removed from beta access.

    Remember the point of a beta isn't to just give a free key, but to get feedback and reports of both good and bad.

    Pete

    Hi Pete:

    exactly, no input no output, there is no free lunch:cool:

    I paid for the product and even in that case if I had provided no feedback good or bad I would fully expect to be removed from the beta forum.:ouch:
