I have installed the giveaway version on XP SP3.
It said that the product is activated. After restarting the computer I have started the program and it was ok. Then after 1 hour I have restarted the program ance again and it has opened the first activation window again (as if I have not done anything).

And now I have uninstalled XP SP3 and installed Windows 7.
And it gives me the above written failure.

I could not use the program more than 1 hour since I have downloaded it.

Can anybody explain me what should I do ?

Thanks in advance,

M. Ali
