WHDLoad transfer Key

I have my WHDLoad.key on my harddrive inside an Amiga 600 and i want to put it on my A1200. This is maybe as simple as it sounds but just wanted to double check that,

1. you can have the same key on more than one computer

2. can i just copy the key file onto a disk and then put it in the same place on my A1200?

The key is for YOUR personal use.

AFAIK thats no problem - I have mine on about 6 machines (All mine)

But the key is not transferable to another user.

There are actually several files, 5 or 6 IIRC, but sure just copy to Disk and then put in the same place on your A1200

Why 5 or 6 files?
I have a legit key for years and it is just one file WHDLOAD.key located in S:

You can of course use it on all your miggies. I strongly discourage pirating WHDLOAD key as it would be a total non sense to an amiga user.

At the contrary, some people have registered twice to support the team. I am considering that myself because it deserves it.

I have 5 files (6 if you include the readme) the make up my key.

Of course it was bought and paid for. I don't see how using it on another Amiga he owns is pirating the key?

The files I have are:

WHDLoad.key
WHDLoad.key.bak
WHDLoad.key.bak.bak
WHDLoad.key.LiesMich
WHDLoad.key.LisezMoi
WHDLoad.key.ReadMe


And I put them in S: although there are other locations within the ReadMe that you can use.

Steve.

It's not a commercial software with single licences and has nothing to do with pirating WHDLoad.

I did not say it is pirating.
It was just a general comment about piracy.

I think the bak files are useless as i do not have them on my hard drive.

Ah Ok, misunderstood you. Just thought you meant it's pirating to use the key on more than one Amigas.

You only need the 1 key.

Steve are they all the same key??? If not you have some pirate keys there!

The readme tells you how to use/where to put the keyfile

This is not a Pirate Key, this is the key I bought and paid for by myself.

All these files where in the .lha provided by Bert.

I thought all the files together constituted as the 'Key' but if you only need the one file, I wonder why the others were provided?

I've seen another persons Key file (someone I helped setup a HDD for) they also had these same files.

it's ok to use your key on your multiple machines, you should not give it to other people though

They are just "backup keys" in case you should lose your key for whatever reason.

This is the key:
WHDLoad.key

This is a BAcKup of the key:
WHDLoad.key.bak

This is a BAcKup's BAcKup of the key (just in case the first two didn't extract correctly from the archive):
WHDLoad.key.bak.bak

This is a readme file in German:
WHDLoad.key.LiesMich

This is a readme file in French:
WHDLoad.key.LisezMoi

This is a readme file in English:
WHDLoad.key.ReadMe

I thought everyone reads the ReadMe when they see one after unpacking an archive. If you never did, it's high time to start reading them.

Lol, first I have Pirate Keys and now I can't read?

From a simple question this thread has gone crazy.

Sorry for trying to help!
