Registering Your Software
Registration is required for some software
offered on this site.
If a program displays a message similar
to the following, then you need to register your copy with the author.
It's an easy process.
The message appears briefly when you start
your program, but disappears automatically a few seconds later so that
you can start to use your software, even before you register it.
Sending in your License Code
If you click the button while the
window is open, then the window expands to show you how you can register
The instructions in this box are for a
typical program that is offered as shareware. Other programs may have
slightly different instructions.

Finishing your Registration
After the author reviews your registration
and the license code you sent, you will get a piece of email that explains
how to finish your registration.
In simple terms, you will be given a more
complete license code that can be entered in place of the original license
code you sent. The software will check on the new code and determine
if it is a valid registered license code.
Once you've registered your software,
it will no longer display the registration reminder window. Some programs
may have additional features after you've registered your software.
License Codes and Your Second Computer
When you get a complete license code from
the author, you will find that it only works on one computer. If you
need to use the program on more than one computer, you should register
the software from each computer.
Many people have two or three computers
and would like to use the same program on all of their machines. If
you send in a second or third license code for the same program for
the same user, you do not need to send in more money.
The author of shareware programs offered on this site will supply you
with free registration codes for the first three (3) copies of a given
program, provided you use the same email address each time. Of course,
you need to send in the unique license codes from each copy of the program.
Group Licenses or Corporate Invoicing
If your company or department is interested
in purchasing a number of copies of software, please email the author
at firstname.lastname@example.org to work out licensing
or invoicing details. Large quantities can earn a discount, and a special
licensed version of the software will make installation and registration
easier on more than one computer.
