9-1-2005: As you may know,
your copy of MyBowlingDiary was shipped with a serial number which is used
for tracking and support purposes. We will be soon implementing a change to
MyBowlingDiary where all customers will be required to activate their copy
of MyBowlingDiary with a license key. You will be provided with this license
key at no cost to you. This change is being made help streamline our product
support infrastructure and to provide proper licensing for our upcoming Palm
and Pocket PC versions of MyBowlingDiary.
Our target date for
implementing this change is by October 1, 2005 or to coincide with the
release of MyBowlingDiary 2.0 whichever is earlier.
The license key that you
receive will be a permanent, non-expiring license key that will allow you to
run MyBowlingDiary as you do now, except that the license key will be
validated each time you run MyBowlingDiary. You will have to enter your
serial number as well as your license key the first time that you run
MyBowlingDiary. The license key and serial number are both required elements
and must be entered accurately. The changes you will see to overall
operation are minimal, such as:
1) Message box indicating
whether or not your key was valid
2) Some features of
MyBowlingDiary may be disabled depending on the type of license you have.
However, the functionality that you have today will not change.
3) Your serial number and
your license key will be maintained in a configuration file
In preparation for this
change, I am asking all customers to please do the following as soon as
1) Locate your
MyBowlingDiary serial number (please see below for help in locating your
You will then be sent a
license key via email with instructions. You should safeguard your key once
you receive it, and not give your key to anyone else. Our support staff will
never ask you for your license key for any reason.
Your MyBowlingDiary serial
number can be found by:
1) Running MyBowlingDiary
2) From the main menu, click
"Help" and then click "About" as illustrated below:
