whoa... I think that's a first!
You're referring to find and run robot, right? It was working ok, and after you pasted the key, it froze the pc?
What version of find and run do you have? In what system?

I see you're a bit :mad::huh:, but i'm sure that if you give him a chance, mouser will fix that problem for you ;)

that is the first time i've heard of such a problem.. if you tell us a little bit more about the error and your system perhaps we can get it working for you?

you can also email me directly (mouser@donationcoder.com).


having said that, i have to agree with the sentiment: "it caused a program error...NO donations for you!"  that does seem quite logical.

Hmm, I can't see how pasting the license key into F&RR could cause a system lockup.

*except* if some other buggy program was running on the machine, and you're using win9x. On win9x, the clipboard API (especially hooking/notification) is *extremely* sensitive, and even the slightest of errors can cause some pretty nasty bugs.
