WHDLoad Keyfile issue

Hi all,

I have d/l WHDLoad 16.8 and have found that after installing and starting Moonstone (old favourite), I got the "you must register before playing" (or to that effect) and I am guttered because that's where it stops.

Anyhow, I am willing to part the money and register the program, but to my frustration I have found that after trying to register using the " If your currency is not listed, check here " link, the web page cannot be found, and as such I am left unregistered.

Does anyone have an idea on how I may be able to register and get my games up and running again ?

PM if need be.

Cheers,

The website that cannot be found was just an exchange rate table... nothing about how to pay... did you even bother to read the rest of the registration page??

Please please do not have children, kill off the dumb genes at this generation

The easiest WHDLoad registration payment is a regular PayPal transaction for €20 which is about $33 AUD

The website that is now dead... was an exchange rate table... nothing about how to pay... did you even bother to read the rest of the registration page??
As a matter of fact I did otherwise I wouldn't be asking would I ? Did you take the time and think that perhaps I do not have paypal ?.... No I guess not !!

Take it easier next time you shoot off the hip !!

But thanks for taking the time to answer.

If you dont have pay pal... then there is credit card payments too with Kagi.

You are old enough to have a credit card arent you?

If not that page describes how you can send cash through the post too (although I wouldnt recommend it)

Once you've paid your registration key gets emailed to you.

i'm not sure there was any need to be quite so rude to DC33. afterall, their circumstance should be taken as unknown, and some assumptions made have clearly proved wrong here.


when i registered, i wasnt 18 either, so i go my brother to write a cheque and register for me via snail mail. unfortunately, its still in his name to this day. although at least the address is still right

Thanks to all of you for your replies (positive and not do positive).....
"Hungry Horace" - I was being sarcastic when I said I would sign up for PayPal. I am well over 18, but I do appreciate your words.

I have now received my key file which I gladly paid for (thanks wepl).

I am disappointed however, to say that I did find an illegal key on a file-sharing network, but be advised that it will never be used or spread.

Cheers,
dc33

It probably wouldn't work anyway. WHDLoad is clever

You might be right.... I haven't and won't bother. Best left alone.

Funny thing is now that I am digging out my old Ami1200 and reloading all the old software/games, I find a lot of it no longer works (at least as I remember) as well as before, even under whdload !! Anyways, I am now re-living my younger days together with my 5-year old (as far as games are concerned).

I hope I'm not alone........

If you could do the decent thing and email that pirated key directly to Wepl, if it hasn't already been blacklisted, he can then do so, so it becomes useless.

I disagree. He didn't completely read or worse failed to understand the WHDload registration webpage! Light humiliation was required.

I do apologise if he took offence, it was not intended. Just a bit of teasing. ( = joke)
