Safeworld on PC advisor cover disc - activation?

  robbins2074 20:04 21 Jul 2003

I have installed Safeworld from the September cover disc but it won't work until I enter a serial number but I can't find a serial number for this software anywhere in the magazine or on the disc.

Please help.

You'r lucky. The only full program i've got is
'French to English' on disk one.
I dont seem to have disk two. Never mind ay !!!

So does anyone know how to activate this?

According to the mag page 172 you have to register online during installation process to get the serial number.

I worked out you got to register before installing the program.

Had installed the program from the automated PC Advisor instead of right clicking on the cd-rom icon and clicking open and clicking on safeworld. Wish that been made perfectly clear in the magazine instead i searched the entire disc for a serial number.

And its not 60 day trial, its 90 days.

Are any of you absolutely sure you want this program in your computer?

I don't know what it does or what it's supposed to do but I'm pretty sure you will be able to get alternatives that cause less problems than this seems to be doing.

I have a policy of never installing anything at all on a whim (resulting from disastrous experiences). Anything I might want to install, software or hardware, I think about it for a day or so beforehand. Usually by then the novelty and desire to have this thing, whatever it is, has gone away.
