Its a neat program with many funtions and i think a lot of people could use it. Although i managed to get another trial version from the Homepage, getting to activate and make it a full version is a totally different ballgame.
I tried looking in the Regisrtry but could couldn't find a trace, checked it in the Windows/Currentversion/Uninstall :although here the Program seems to be Registered and using this doesn't seem to activate the Product.
  My best guess either the Registry key is Encrypted.
  Likewise i do not want to infringe the Forum rule's, since it is a Giveaway, n i most certainly will format my PC, dont know when in this coming week, not to mention how many times. It would be a waste to loose this Product.
  Hope, u h' understood my Querry. Can someone find the Registry key. Grin

www.donationcoder.com  Thmbsup Thmbsup really for me is the last place i would ask for help. I consider this Forum hell lot better than WilderSecurity.

I think the registration is within the GAOTD installer itself.  But that's just a guess.  So you may have to install it today on all the PC where you want it.  Or wait for the next GAOTD, or find an equivalent like Glary's.

Glary's Utility is good ,but each one his own Preference. Win Utility has a free version as well but this is the Pro Edition that is being offered.

Thank anyways:

You didn't get this from me, but start up the installer on giveaway day [today]
After the key wrapper dissapears and the installation starts, run

[copy or print]
md C:\GAOTD
attrib -r -h -s %temp%\we*.*
for %i in (%temp%\we*.*) do copy %i C:\GAOTD
ren C:\gaotd\*.tmp *.exe

then check C:\GAOTD for results :]

Thanks for the CMD scancode, havn't used it but renaming the Temporary file did the job of actually getting the Original Installer, very cleverly concealed .Was figuring that for many weeks but anyways thank you. Sometimes , sometimes i feel why even let the setup.exe be archived another Setup.exe

Why? To only allow the exe to run on giveaway date, ofc!

 thumb down FYI: WinUtilities Disk Defrag uses JkDefrag'Source Code. No mention is made of that in their documentation by WinUtilities. It's a fencing posture and an abusive idiosyncrasy indeed...

 thumb down BTW, Abexo Disk Defragmenter (payware...) does the same...

 Grin But they can't do that anymore with the freeware MyDefrag (that isn't open source like the previous JkDefrag...).

The EXE is a pre-licensed version generated for GAOTD (ie there is no license needed to install from the extracted installer) so you can reinstall it at any time.

This trick usually works because you can extract the installer and license details where relevant. In this case you just grab the installer Wink

You don't usually even need to install the application on the GAOTD day - just run the setup to extract the installer.

By the way the script doesn't work "as is" - the folders and installer files are randomly named (not just we* folders). Just look in %temp% for the files and folders that were extracted by Setup.EXE. You can also check TaskManager to see which TMP file is being executed as the installer!

Hah!  I usually just watch the %temp% and copy it out, now why didn't I think of making a DOpus button to do this  embarassed

RegShot is your friend Wink

It can also monitor for changed/new/deleted files on the system partition.

Addendum: Updated unicode version here.
