    I'll start this out with a question that won't mean a thing without the explanation that follows: Does anysone know what a "system code" is and what causes it to change?

    I have a recurring problem with a third-party program that gets 'un-registered' from time to time. I do a fair amount of tryng out new software and I'm pretty sure it is the install-uninstall-clean registry process that changes the 'system code' that this program relies on to ensure it is used on only one computer. Thus, I am constantly re-registering it with the software supplier.

    The code will also change if I set this particular program to 'Run as Administrator' - BUT - the code changes right back to the previous one if I simply undo the 'Run as Administrator.' In this case, I do not need to re-reister the program. (Just so you can get an idea of what the code looks like, I've attached a screen shot of the registration box showing the 'current' system code.)

    I have questioned the supplier on the problem and he says that there IS a way around the problem (it happens with other of his clients, too), but it would be very expensive for him to implement.

    Any suggestions on how I might prevent this constant changing? Or maybe some way I could
    set things right again after fooling around with new software?

    Thank you for reading through this. With all the experienced people out there (this is
    being read all over the world after all!), I'm hoping for the right person to read it
    and help me get the saddle back on my horse - Are you that person?
