I can't help here but consider it inadvisable to publish your email address in an open Forum. Its done now but next time just ask people to use the envelope next to your name. And I don't think you need all the thing you mention, if you want to use the program, still have the disk but have lost the serial number that is all you need. Someone to give you the copy of the serial number.
I have it installed on my XP system,just not presently fired up(I'm using Mandriva Linux)I will be booting up the XP system later,and will do as you request.
I haven't had any troubles with CDX Rescue,the reg software box appears and I'm sure I just cancel,and can use the app.There is another similar app to CDX called CD Check,again its on my XP box,so cannot get the URL just yet.Will post details later.
Thanks Chegs for the CD check, I had an earlier version (win 98), but this one is a lot better.
The original CDX program was on a PCAdvisor CD (I believe Spring 2004), I registered it, and received my codes, but you stil have to contact the online site to register for a new system (or a new hard drive) and that is no longer in operation. The registration requires an entry into the registry, which is what I am after.
