I noticed that comment on their site. If this is the case then why not make a public key?

Hmm... I am wondering about the same thing. I would like to register some programs too, but it seems they have closed their doors. I would really like to be able to use their products, though.

Especially AmIRC and Voyager.
Anyone got a spare key they could share?

I don't think anyone will really mind any more.

That's so retarded.
They should release a free, public key so people can use their software.

I agree. It's so sad just sitting there all broken with the last news item probably from 2004, though they don't tell. Perhaps there is some way to reach the rights holders and beg? Source would be nice too, considering how the development has stopped.

Meanwhile, there are several of those Vapor applications on the Netconnect 3.1 CD, available at least from amigakit. I got one of those for like 5 on eBay, and the CD had something of a key generator using which you can make a netconnect key with your name. At least the versions of the software distributed on the CD work fully and naglessly with just that.

I also know I run some other version of AmTelnet, and I think I tried some other version of AmIRC though I seem to recall the later betas didn't work. Unfortunately I don't think later Voyagers worked either. I basically needed AmTelnet and didn't bother that much with the rest.

Vapor.com has a form somewhere to request proper application keys based on a netconnect key, but I never got a reply on that so I guess no one processes them anymore. Either that, or then whoever I bought the CD from had already used it and vapor.com didn't see fit to reject me with a comment.

Sounds like vaporware has changed from vaporware to abandonware...

I wonder if it would be okay to request for keys to be put in Zone yet?

I wouldn't know about that, but don't miss the fact that they are still being sold in the form of Netconnect 3.1, like I said above. Amigakit has stock but eBay is probably cheaper.

Interesting.

Do they have the rights to sell the full version themselves, or have they bought a load of licenses they are selling forward now?

I am a bit curious now.

If anyone gets this package, could they check who the key has been issued to, and if it is a "free" key?

So... It comes with a keygen that creates the keys for Vaporvare products?

I see... o.o

Well not exactly. It generates a "Netconnect key", which at least the versions of the applications on the CD accept. There may be an extra library involved, but the applications will work without a nag or limitations.

There are updated versions for some of the applications on the website. Some work with the "Netconnect key" and some don't. In particular the betas of AmIRC didn't, and neither did a newer Voyager. Apparently one could originally fill a web form and receive proper application keys for the Vaporvare products, but this process doesn't appear to work anymore. While proper keys would be certainly be neat, the "Netconnect key" is more than sufficient for my needs.

For browsing I'd rather use IBrowse than Voyager. Unfortunately it's been 'temporarily unavailable' for purchase for a couple of years, which sounds a lot like not every effort has been made to make it so again. But the developers say that it's not dead, and the last news item on the web page is from December 31 last year. I'm cautiously optimistic that it will still see a release. Seems more likely than Voyager, anyway..

Hm... Iweb? I think I will have to have a look at that. However, I got the AWeb work for now so I will have to experiment. But I will have to have a look at it and see how I like it.

Google will help you out until such time that IBrowse becomes available for purchase again...
