REGISTERING FSUIPC

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

This morning I purchased a registered copy of FSUIPC4 and paid for it by credit card and received the registration key. I have installed it into FSX but can not get the registration key to work. It keeps telling me that it is not a good 12 number key. How long does it take from payment to being able to use the registration key? There is also the possibility that I am mis interpreting what might be the number 0 and the letter o, and the number 1 and the letter i or l, but I have tried all the combinations I can think of and nothing works. I do not want to post the key here for obvious reasons.

Thanks,

Howard

The usual reason the key is rejected is that you are making a mistake. All three parts -- name, email and key, MUST be entered EXACTLY. Use cut and paste to avoid mistakes. It is easy with the key to mix 2's and Z's, 0's and O's, and so on. With cut and paste you can't make such mistakes. This is why it is recommended in the installation guide.

The second most popular reason from this problem is that you've ordered a key for FSUIPC4 but are using FSUIPC3, or vice versa. However I don't think this applies to you because I see your purchase for an FSUIPC4 key. I see there are plenty of chances for errors in the key entry though, between S's and 5's, O's and 0's and 1's and I's. I count 16 possible combinations if you are guessing!

Oh, please also ensure you are using a current version -- 4.70 is the earliest supported version of FSUIPC4.

Regards

Pete

OK. I took your suggestion and did a copy/paste and that worked. I am not going to try and figure out what was wrong. Thanks for your help.
