    You simply double-click the license file you have received as an e-mail attachment. I couldn't think of anything easier.

    Darn Coaster, you make this hard. I've had Anydvd for 3 years. I never had a problem with they license key arrangement. The problem arose AFTER a complete system restore. I downloaded Anydvd, which after the restore did not work. The download was a trial version. I was certain there must be a way to re-register so went to FAQ, search, typed in system restore, recovery after system restore, etc. Never did I type in activate with license key. I had done that in the past and knew it took an email to register that way. How to get the email? Emailed support and asked. Never got response. If, they would have directed me to the first forum thread you just posted, I would have seen under step 4 how that is done. I did finally put together enough info from both this forum and the FAQ page to realize there was nothing to do put go into the program (which I thought no longer worked as I couldn't open it from the desktop), find the key picture and double click on it. Really simple, you're right. Without directions to tell me the key still sat there and COULD be double clicked, it would have been easy. Wish you would have seen and answered my 1st request for help. Hope others never have to do a full restore and not know the key stays after the program quits.

    I have tried all of that and mine still doesn't work. I purchased mine in 2004 and still have original email with the key, however, it doesn't show any numbers other than a reference number. Where do I get the license number?

    You gotta email Slysoft support to get it now.

    My responses 1) presume you own the original retail disc you are attempting to backup, 2) tend to represent myself only, and 3) do not necessarily represent the views of SlySoft nor its developers. I do not work for SlySoft.

    @ steve1942,

    You still don’t get it do you?

    If you had made a copy of your Registration Key as requested by SlySoft in the license e-mail you received from SlySoft when you originally purchased AnyDVD and stored your Registration Key in a safe place (not on your computer) you would have not had to contact SlySoft for anything. Below is a direct quotation from the Slysoft license e-mail ->

    “Please make a safety backup of your license key file on a floppy disk or a CD and keep it in a safe place.”

    The pure and simple fact is that you failed to make a copy of your Registration Key and store in a safe place. Now since you failed to make a backup copy of your Registration Key you are attempting to throw the blame for you inconvenience on SlySoft. It is time to act like a mature adult and stop attempting to pass the blame to someone else.

    Regards,
    Coaster

    Coaster: I have my key (license) number. The number doesn't help unless you have an email to place it in. SORRY.

    Cricket, go to your programs, open Slysoft. Open Anydvd. Look for something that says registration. If you copy it to the desktop, it will convert to the key picture with fox that everyone is talking about. I bought Anydvd back in 2004 also and think the fox picture was added to program later. Download latest version, double click on key, you should have a registered version, at least that worked for me.

    @ steve1942,

    You are entirely wrong. You don’t need any “email to place it in”.

    All you need is your “Registration Key” file. You double chick the “Registration Key” file and your SlySoft/Elaborate Bytes software program is then “Registered”.

    I have installed SlySoft/Elaborate Bytes software program on my daughters and son’s computer numerous times after performing hard disk reformats. I never contact SlySoft for any “email to place it in”. I just inset the CD were I have burned my backup copy of my Registration Key file and double click on the Registration Key file and the SlySoft/Elaborate Bytes software program is then “Registered”.

    I have a computer with all the SlySoft/Elaborate Bytes “Registered” software programs installed on it and this computer doesn’t even have Internet connection. Trust me no “email to place it in” has ever been on this computer. All of the SlySoft/Elaborate Bytes software program were “Registered” by just inserting the CD were I have burned my backup copy of my Registration Key file and double click on the “Registration Key” file.

    Unless you have failed to make a backup copy of your Registration Key and stored it in a safe place there is absolutely no reason be contacting SlySoft for anything. You don’t need any “email to place it in”.

    Do you really believe that SlySoft would design a Registration System that would require Registered users to contact them for a “email to place it in” each time someone had a hard drive failure or purchased a new computer to register their SlySoft software programs?

    Coaster
