[quote=RadioRed;2088546]I paid $20usd a few months ago for the “Pro” version. Not so much for any additional qualities as to support people who write software. Anyway it was what I expected UNTIL my HDD crashed & I installed a new one. Of course that meant installing any old pgms I wanted on the new HDD. All was well until I remembered my “paid” version of DVDInfo “Pro”.
I’ve NEVER had so big a problem reinstalling a $20 pgm in my life. It’s absurd all that is necessary…serial number…hardware id…activation key !!!
You’d think it was a top secret piece of software. Give me a break here.

I have to agree, this a piece of software that you can get for free, to do all that just for an advert free version is not necessary. But at least you only have to do it once for each version. Software authors are getting very protective because of all the illegal copies going around. I do not however like programs that call home. This is just my personal opinion.
