I am somewhat embarrassed to have to ask this question. I have had anyDVD for many years on my desktop computer, and now I want to install it on a laptop having Windows 8 OS. Somehow, I can't register the program even tho I have the serial number. Here's what I have done: (1) On laptop, downloaded anyDVD and installed. Result: tiles show in Windows 8 for anyDVD plus anyDVD register. (2) Clicking on tile, anyDVD runs. No request to enter serial number, no reminder that only so many days remain for evaluation copy. (3) Clicking on anyDVD register tile, get only a window that shows the documents folder -- no folder or file therein about anyDVD. Of course I have read the sticky note about registering -- not applicable since it says to open the Start menu: there is no start menu with Windows 8, only tiles. Also, have viewed the Programs folder to see the anyDVD executable and other files. The program in this folder that looks like it might be used to register results in the same as step (3) above. What should I do? Let well enough alone, maybe registration is not needed? Wait until the trial period is up, maybe I will be asked to enter the serial number that I paid for? By "serial number," I mean the registration key that I have saved for anyDVD.
