What exactly is a license key?

A license key is a string of characters that works a little like a password. Anyone can download our software to have a look at how it works but only paying customers have access to license keys that are used to activate the full version.

Your license key gives you access to one of our products for a specified amount of time, our standard licenses are all valid for a full year. The license also gives you access to our support team who can be contacted by clicking on the link "Ask us a question" which appears below each FAQ entry. These talented geeks are here to help you with any technical issues you might have while using any of our programs.

Can I use the same license key on every computer in my home?

A single license key is meant to be used by a single computer at a time. There is nothing stopping you from removing the program and installing it again on a second computer in your home after updating the first. The advantage of owning more than one copy of any of our products is that each of your computers can have the full software installed and active at the same time.

I've purchased your product but the license key you've given me will not fit in the fields provided, what gives?

All of our license keys are 20 characters long and formatted in four digit pieces like this:

XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX

Our keys contain only letters and numbers and never contain ZEROs or ONEs. If your license key looks different from this in any way it is not one of ours. It's possible that you have purchased a similar product from one of our competitors and have downloaded our software by mistake; this is surprisingly common. The license key from one company will not work with the software of another even if they are very similar in functionality.

Please double check your bill to see by whom you were charged and for which product. If you find a charge from our distributor, Clickbank, that indicates one of our products please get in touch with our support team using the "Ask us a question" link below and make sure to include the 8 digit receipt number that appears with that charge. We'll track down your order and have you set up with a working license key ASAP.

Will you charge my card automatically for a second year when the license runs out?

We do not automatically charge or renew any of our customers' accounts when they expire. When the expiration date approaches the software will gently remind you to renew whenever you run the program.

Why are you charging me a VAT Tax?

All taxes and other applicable fees are added automatically by our distributor, Clickbank. You can get more information about clickbank and it's application of this particular tax by following this link:

I'm getting an error message that says “You have exceeded the activation limit” and it is preventing me from using this product, what can I do?

All our products are limited to how many times they can be 'activated', or installed. This is a soft limitation that's intended only to deter illegal copying of the software and can always be extended for legitimate customers that exceed the limit.
