I tried it, and was completely underwhelmed. Of the dozens of apps on my system (I love to play with new toys  ;) ) the only apps it came up with keys for were Microsoft apps -- including IE, and who cares about that key?

There are heaps of free tools to extract the keys of MS apps, who needs a for-money program to do this?

Ha, ha, I just dropped back in here to update my post with the same info - I tried it too - the only non M$ app it found was SnagIt. It's of dubious utility even as a free install (it won't last on my machine longer than it takes me to type this post...) but paying $20 for it would be insane.

I imagine this program has not been updated for at least a year.
