View Full Version : Lost permanent Key

02-15-2004, 04:38 AM

My computer just blew up (not literally) holding the only copy of my permanent license key on it.

How do i go about getting it again. Do i have to re-register for it, or email someone?

can anyone help?

Call Newtek and they can give you the number.

Rule of thumb: Write the key number on the CD or in the manual.

i cant call newtek as i'm in the uk and supposedly have to call France, cant afford that.

Is there and email address i can contact?

Cmon mate.
You have to expend a *little * effort here. All the info you need is on the pages of the Newtek website.

I would jump in as well and be able to be more pro-active about the whole thing if you filled in the location field in the forum. Then I would know you were based in the UK and could email you. :(

Send an email to [email protected] and we'll get your license.key back to you. As Matt said, it's a good idea to make a note of it somewhere where it won't get lost, but you can always ask us again.

yeah it was pretty silly not to write it down, will do next time.

Is it just me, or does this all sound a little fishy? :rolleyes:

I don't think so,
the permanent license key wuld be no use without a dngle anyway.

I personally have a CD with my full LW installation area (sans content) so if my PC goes t*ts up, I can just drop it back down.

Oh, I know the license key would be useless by itself, but if you didn't own LightWave you might not. Just seems weird. "I can't afford to call". And it didn't occur to you to try e-mail?!?!
