How do I register and pay for a program?

Our programs are distributed as key-enabled trial software. That means you may install and test it free of charge for as long as you like, and then if you like it and want to continue to use it, you can register your copy by paying for it. You'll get a registration code back from us after paying. This will either allow you to continue to use the program after the trial period has expired, or unlock some additional features.

I've registered a program, but my registration code doesn't seem to work, help!

First off, make sure you have the most recent version of the program. Make sure you are entering your name into the program exactly as shown in your registration email. Make sure you double-check your code entry so that it matches the code sent. Often people think they've entered it in correctly and actually have made a slight typo, which will cause the code to not work. Extra spaces in the name or number, leaving out the dashes in the number, or entering in or leaving out punctuation to the name that wasn't there on the registration email will all result in the code not working. Everything must be entered exactly as shown in the registration email. The code contains no letter "O's", so all 0 are zeros. Also, make sure you are not mistaking eights for "B's", as that is one thing many people have trouble with. If you continue to have trouble, please contact us.
