ShopFactory on PC Adr's disc - registration probs

  RRRetro 08:04 30 Sep 2006

The cover mounted disc on Novembers PC Advisor (iss 136) has the very useful ShopFactory LE.

How do you register it without paying? -presumably it is free..!?

Have I overlooked the obvious?

Haven't looked at the version available on the CD myself, but you can download a demo from here:

I gather you have not attempted registration.
Well, I`d go ahead and do so. There`s nothing on the box the disc came in to say it will cost anything, just a reminder of it`s worth. I`m going to give it a go myself so if I find any pricing problem I`ll post back.

All installed and registered.
When you start the prog. a panel pops up asking you to register within 30 days. Type your e-mail address into the appropriate section and your password in the next one. Ignore the section marked `code`. You may get an e-mail back from them and i`ll assume your code will be there. Money was not mentioned on my install. Good luck :-))

I am about to give it a whirl, thank you both, especially bluto1.

OK, tried that, the program started OK after clicking 'Start' but when I came to load the prog again, it came back to the registration screen.
If I click register I am then taken to a web page that states;

Thank you for registering. Please ensure you have correctly filled out the code and email fields. Registering is not possible without these being correct.

Alas, it hasn't registered!!

I have now emailed the company for advice, when (and if!) they respond I shall paste their response here to help any others experiencing the same problems.
