License key does not work
« on: August 09, 2009, 06:26:14 AM »
After I paste the license code and click on accept, the message appears that the key has been saved, however when I right click on the Screen Captor Icon the About line still says; "Enter new License code" I have tried multiple times.

Choose the about item from menu and see what it says in the about box -- does it list your name/email?  if so then the license has been accepted.
The menu item will still always say "About (Enter new License Code)".

sometimes this happens if you grabbed the license key for a different program.. on the license key page note that there is a list of license keys to download for different apps.

email me if you continue to have problems and i can try to help (mouser@donationcoder.com)

Each time I try to enter the license key, it returns the following message. "Error: Bad License Key syntax.  Error in License Key text syntax -- please check that you copied+pasted the entire license key begining with *r." I am certain the key was pasted correctly. Please advise a solution. Thank you.

most often the problem is what i said above -- the license key download page actually has links to download license keys for different programs -- and people just click on one of the links randomly, and end up with a license key for a different program. 

so make sure when you go to the license key page (http://www.donationc...r.com/Keys/index.php) that you click the link corresponding to the application you will put the license key into.

email me for more help (mouser@donationcoder.com) if you are still stuck  :up:
