Once again, thanks for the advice. I’m not sure why it never worked, but I tried to uninstall and re-install most of last night and a few times today. I didn’t have a reg cleaner, so I found a few and decided to purchase a product WinTools.net (I seem to have been having issues with a few other programs). I cleaned the reg several time, installed and uninstalled DVDfab a few times. Finally (and I don’t know why now) I had reinstalled DVDfab, then it did the re-boot (my way of knowing my install was likely clean), started the pgm, entered my key and it came back once again requesting my key <sigh>. So, in this WinTools package they have a Clean uninstall. Part of that is the option to install or run the program through the uninstaller, so I figured what the heck. I did not uninstall DVDFab, ran the install exec via this Wintool.net interface, started up the program, entered my key and low and behold, it worked and opened up DVDfab. I’m not exactly sure why this worked after all I had gone through, but I will cyberly tip-tow away and just be thankful it finally registered!!
