Where can I get the registration number for the Encyclopedia Britannica,? I have emailed the company last week but have not had a reply to my query.

Similar problem with another "dics programme" so I uninstalled the lot, went up again to where they asked for reg. key and asked for it. Being a slowish sort of guy, I then uninstalled anything that was left, checked e-mail, found reg key, wrote it down and started off again, and when I came to where they wanted the key ,....the rest is history. Sometimes it works.

Let the disc autorun. On the section for EB there is a link. Click this and enter your details. The code will be supplied on the same page.

However some of us are having problems with the code. It took me two days to get it to work. Copying and pasting had no effect. In the end I typed in each digit manually, and it worked.

Wish I could even find the code. tried the CD in autorun and opened every icon I could see,(couldn't find the EB link) but no sign of reg key. Still biteing my nails.

As you'll see, I've deleted a posting from this thread. The reason I've done this is that we need to ensure readers visit the registration page at click here

Encyclopaedia Britannica (the company which developed the software and agreed to give this away on the cover disc) requires all PC Advisor readers who wish to install and use the Concise 2006 program to register their details on our site. This is essential so that they (and I) can see how popular the promotion has been with our readers.

I appreciate that you were really only trying to help other members by posting the code on this thread, but it's counterproductive for the following reasons:

In order for me to continue to offer free software via the cover discs, I need to be able to show software companies that their applications appeal to our readers.

By ensuring readers register, I can determine what kinds of software are of particular interest to readers. I will be able to see when a program is only registered by a few thousand readers, and so isn't as popular as those which have been registered by in excess of 10,000.

It also allows me to go to the major software developers and use the success of previous covermounts as leverage to get the best exclusive software which hasn't been offered on any of our competitors.

I'm sure you'll have noticed how many different PC magazines there are in the shops, each with free CDs and full software. PC Advisor always offers exclusive software, which won't have been given away on any other magazines. In order to continue doing this, we need to get everyone to register - hope you understand!

Kind regards,

To Richard Clooke, CD Editor,
I believe I`m the guilty party whose post you deleted. Please accept my apologies for publishing the key here. I honestly didn`t know
that it would be taboo. Shan`t do it again.
