Key for FSUIPC4

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I bought FSUIPC4 yesterday. The key for the download is not accepted, although I got the 9 digits. What I do wrong?

Thanks for help and greetings from switzerland,

Marwil

I don't know what you mean by "key for the download". The download doesn't need a key.

The keys for FSUIPC and WideFS registration are NOT 9 digits, but 12 characters!

Also, all three parts must be entered EXACTLY as stated, name, email and key. Use cut and paste to avoid mistakes.

As well as this, make sure you are installing a current version (4.70 or later), and that the date is set correctly on your PC.

Thank you Pete!

Of course, 12 characters, which I need for registration. Only the code listd in the mail is not accepted, Can i send you the mail to show you?

If it isn't accepted it will because you are either getting it wrong, or because you aren't entering your name or email address correctly either.

There's no point in sending me anything. I have them all here in any case. They are generated automatically in any case using the same algorithm as FSUIPC's installer uses to check them.

Maybe you purchased a key for FSUIPC3 instead of FSUIPC4?

I can only guess because you don't use your real name here for some reason (I never understand why), but if you are Markus Wilhelm, the key is fine. You are making a mistake.

Regards

Thank you, Pete,

Now I've given all times ... And i found the bug: the O was an 0!

Difficult to see. Now, it's works.

Because of the name, it is often recommended because of security to use a nickname.

Thanks and excuse for your need unnecessary time!!

That is exactly why I suggest using cut-and-paste.

Really? I've always used my real name on every forum I've ever joined, for many years. What problems do you expect me to get as a result?

Regards

It is recommended by a lot of agencies that you do not post your real and full name on forums Pete, most UK ISPs include it in their "welcome" packs now that it's part of standard online security.

The reason is that if you post your full name and where you live on a board and then say "I'm on holiday for two weeks!", it doesn't take much to track down that address for one thing and yes, there are people out there who actively look for that sort of information.

There are a few Forums which won't accept you unless you use your proper name -- UK2000, for instance.

Hmmm. I see. Of course one never says how many others are living with you and not going on holiday! ;-)

I think it's an awareness thing more than anything else, designed to get people to think about what information they are giving out (can we say "Facebook" at this point?) and how it could be used.

A lot of it is paranoia - I tend to use "Ian P" simply because it is shorter and quicker to type than putting my full surname - but when sites actively solicit to gather and publish information about you, plus sell it on to advertising and occasionally less reputable companies and individuals, I can see why security types suggest it. How do most people tell what is a webmaster trying to prove you are a real person and not just there to cause trouble, vice a site that just wants your full name and other details as part of a data grab?
