I can't get the registration code that you sent me to work. Am I doing something wrong?
Did you copy the reg code to the clipboard and paste it into the
registration in put field? If you try to key the string in by hand I can

Try highlighting the reg code, making sure not to add spaces at the
beginning or end, then type control-c (hold down CTRL and then press C).
Go to the registration input field, single click the input field to give
it focus, and then type control-v (hold down CTRL and then press V).
Your registration code should now be entered correctly!
