I used the number supplied and it works fine. If I remember correctly I simply copied and pasted it into the appropriate place.

Perhaps I'm going blind but I couldn't find any code anywhere, can anyone help!

Online registration required. I assume they will email you a key.I will find out for sure tonight as only just bought the mag. If so copy and paste as suggested above. This will sort out the 0's and 1's.

I cann't find a key either. The link on the cd takes me to the software registration page. Then asks me to sign in which I do and it then takes me to the homepage. No sign of the Brittannica code key. Where is it.

it asks for 16 bit code and there is only 14 in the supplied code -so pput two spaces in middle and it accepted that ;)

I registered when I first got the magazine through the post, but given the disparity shown here I have just done it again. All you need to do is:

1. run your disk and select full programs

2. select Britannica and click the blue registration text under the words, "Online Registration Required"

3. this will take you to the website where you log in and confirm yourself to be a subscriber or otherwise. You must select one of these to proceed

4. under these buttons is a box "REGISTER FOR SOFTWARE" click it and you will go to the registration number.

The number is 16 digits long.

Hope this helps.

Just tried it, My code is 16 digits, but will not work. Perhaps PCA can help with this.
