Registration code question

Postby wolfwatcher51 » Sun Jun 06, 2010 12:23 pm

I read all the FAQs, except the non-English ones and so I have a pre-purchase question.

Macecraft is very generous in letting us use the jv16 power tools 2009 on up to 5 family computers, as well as being a completely functional trial program, thank you for this.

In one of the FAQs, it was asked something like, what private information is in the registration code/license I download to activate the software. The response was basically, your email.

To keep peace in the house we have two ISPs with their associated email accounts. When I purchase the software license and try to activate it on the computers with a different email address than the one I purchased the license with, will it fail? If so, what would be the easiest work around for my situation?

Thanks in advance, Chris.
P.S. I have been using the freeware RegCleaner 4.3 by Jouni Vuorio for years. Many thanks to JV for this.

There is nothing to worry, when you buy a license you are sent a license key which is a small file. You can simply copy this file to all the family PCs and install PowerTools, the program will automatically detect the license key and work as the full version.

There are no checks about email addresses or any other technical restrictions or copy protection of that sort.

Glad to hear! I still remember coding RegCleaner like it was yesterday.

Yes it does seem like yesterday. Time goes faster the older you get.

I am a little unsure of the jv16 PowerTools 2009 compared to the RegCleaner 4.3 I have on my notebooks. I use it by selecting Tools-Registry Cleaner-Do them all and let it do it's thing. I do not remember why, but it is set to automatic and just make one backup copy. It may be on automatic due to the enlarged font, for my old eyes, making it hard to see all of the window after cleaning to make a selection, but then it has been more than a few years.

My question is, when I ran RegCleaner 4.3 the way I have described it, did it fix the findings, or delete them. or it "know" which to fix and which to delete? Or do you need more information to tell?

It seems when I run jv16 most of what shows up looks to be the same as the last scan prior to rebooting or restarting the computer. The handbook in the selection for fix or delete did not give me a clear understanding of when you used one over the other. RegCleaner 4.3 "just worked", never did anything that caused me a problem, maybe I was just lucky, I do not know. With your more detailed and feature rich jv16 program, I am not so sure. I guess sometimes simpler is better.

Could you please give me instructions on how to use jv16 so it does like 4.3 used to do?



I started another thread where I was asking for explicit help in getting jv16 into exclusions for the on access protection for Avast 4.8 anti-virus program. I got a number of views but no replies. In the Avast program there are several on access protection providers, but I did not see where/how to add avast to any of them, or which one I needed to get it into. Under general settings there is an exclusion tab, but it explicitly states it is for everything except the on access providers. Can you shed any light on this? Is there a better category to put a thread like this? The forum seems to get either a lot of views and replies, or the thread gets none or next to none, many going unresolved. Not a complaint, just a noob observation. I realize that once you give someone the answer that fixes their issue, you cannot force them to be courteous and do one more post to inform everybody that you solved their issue and they are nominating you for Sainthood, or what they found to resolve their issue.

Thanks in advance, Chris.

Just run the Registry Cleaner, select all and click Fix.

There is a bug in the most recent version of PowerTools that can cause it not to remove all the found items. You can solve the problem by switching to PowerTools 2010, it will be officially released soon anyways. You can get it from: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4073&start=0

I'm afraid I can't really help with this problem because I do not use Avast Anti-Virus.

But I found this with google:
