This info was above the DC License Key sent to me via email back in January 2012:

With the free license keys, this mostly happens when you click to download the wrong link. Each link on the free license key download page is for a different program.  Try getting the key again, and if you still have trouble, email me and I'll assist (mouser@donationcoder.com).

So someone only gets an all-inclusive key if they donate?   :tellme:  Didn't know there were different types.

Yes.  If you donate you get a single key that works on all apps.
But the free license keys are specific to a specific program, so you have to download a different key for each program.

Money is tight everywhere but seeing as how one can name their donation amount... seems silly not to donate and be done with it.  8) IMO

I think the question from Josh though was more targeted than that- some people come to DC complaining about license keys not working for non-DC programs.  :-\

I guess sometimes people get confused... but really.  Hopefully that wasn't a text message.   ;D
