I have just recently installed Windows XP (Home Edition).
As I understand it, when executing a filename *.key that it should put the contents (code) automatically in the registry? Instead the file is opened up in NotePad.
On the PC Advisor December 2005 DVD there is a program called CARTOONIST 1.1 and a *.key file that has the registration code. I am unable to enter this code automatically using the *.key file.
Something similar happened last week when inserting an autorun disk. Instead of it bringing up a menu all I got was NotePad displaying the code. Yet when putting in another CD with autorun it appeared to workd fine.
