  1. the old key will not work - you can recycle it - it takes 30 days - if you have another unused key then you need to activate that or buy another - or wait the 30 days cracking system - i think not!
  2. This question has already been answered by Kelsenellenelvian. But the real question should be why is there a possibility to regenerate new key. Should it be really allowed? Shouldn't the key amount be fixed to donation amount? I just didn't want to limit users so much, so I added this possibility but I had to do something to avoid abusing. But it is what I said in one of the last posts - regardless what I do, users will still complain "why is there...". surely the real question is why is a key blacklisted when a user who has paid for a licence changes something in his pc - and thats what
  3. From what I understand the way the keys work this idea would make it easy to install on a bunch of systems with a tiny donation you will have to expand on that - not sure i understand
  4. this all adds questions to the licence model to me - is the whole thing manual - certainly it sounds like it - send a donation and i [bm] will/may] reward you with some keys - so how does that work - sounds like a manual process to me recycle a key and you will get a new one in 30 [ish] days - again that sounds manual - so people have paid a licences fee - sorry made a donation and they may or may not have a working key into the future if BM gets fed up of the whole thing how ever its wrapped up people expect a licence to work into the future - its accepted that updates from Microsoft may
  5. why is there a delay at all - do they have to be processed manually - if so a delay is reasonable as no one would expect BM or whoever to be there 24/7 - but if its an automatic process then it should be there and then??
  6. and to BM - i have had my say - i disagree with you but all we do is go round the closed loop - delete the above if you want - its only interesting to you and me and even then thats debatable
  7. it is not a business as such - its a sideline but you are correct - i will look at that again imo the way the software is paid for creates confusion - people have no idea what the cost is - its better as theres a very good hint on the website - but a price per licence would be better - again imo
  8. As I said before, any licensing model will never fit to anyone, some model is better, some is worse... locking to MB could be better, maybe, but the change is actually not needed at all, because it is only very small specific sample of users where HDD-lock does not fit. And I can even bet that if lock to MB only, soon or later, there will come some user complaining that he needs to change his MB twice a day. again i dont take issue - i asked a question based on my needs and what i saw as over the top protection - you are not going to change anything as is you right so lets agree to disagre
  9. you need to read back - i change HDD's on a couple of laptops on a regular basis - i buy and sell used HDD's - they are all tested over time - so its a pain - i prefer not to see the popup and watermark so locking to a harddrive is not good and i argue not needed - but i am now accused of creating a false problem - aka i lie M$ seel an OS - this is a penny bit of software - good software but not in the same league as an OS - its the only software i know or use with this model of payment apart from an OS - not needed - put a price on a license and sell them - i point you to StartisBack - sam
  10. i do not take issue with much of that - i asked a question - i think that question reasonable considering your licencing model of locking Aeroglass to hardware - imo a lock to the motherboard is enough but you dont see it like that so we disagree as to the software itself - i said its good - its very good - if people cannot use it then thats their problem - you provide good support for something that needs a bit more to get it working than just a click on an exe file - that i believe is the nature of how Aeroglass works - you are clear that the casual user may have problems - all that speaks

  12. you miss the point or seem to - firstly - dont accuse me of creating false problems - that is in effect calling me a lier - i do not lie - your licencing model causes me problems - i stated it and asked for you to reconsider - i dont agree with your model as you know but would happily buy more licences if it was not locked to the HDD - the motherboard is enough of a lock imo why do i care about your software - thats simple - its good - its very good - it made 8 and 8.1 better and has done the same for 10 - you have put back something that should never have been removed again i say you
  13. you see it as spam - i see it as comment - you think your licencing model is correct i disagree - its your software so your choice - that does not mean everyone has to agree with you as to my post being untrue - how do you come to that - it does not agree with you but you have no exclusivity on the thuth This is not about expressing opinion anymore, you already put your opinion, I put mine. And I already put my opinion many times and you still write the same thing here still around. and others agree with me - maybe that says i have a point - but until the money stops coming you will ca

  15. i guess this will be deleted i think the poster above is pretty typical of people out there - most want something for nothing - i include myself in that - but in my mind thats not the issue here as i have said many times before - the licence cost of this excellent addon in not worth arguing about - its the way its works that is the issue - the fanboys here are happy so all seems good but wander a few sites and look for discussion on aeroglass and the one thing that comes back is the donation [nagware] model - add to that the fact it cannot [easily] be moved between computers and its annoy
  16. cannot argue with any of that - as i say i just think the locking to a harddrive as well as the motherboard seems ott
  17. its just the look - fully agree that it matters not but i usually test the drive in the laptop for a week or so on and off with everything fully installed - so its nice to have things as i want it it does not add to the testing just the look and feel when i use the laptop my broad point is is it really needed to lock aeroglass to a harddrive - not sure even microsoft do that these days - a motherboard change - fair enough or to a specific motherboard which then locks it to a single pc or laptop i assume is surely enough protection to stop against illegal spreading of your software Is

  19. with respect - you may think that - but there are people [me for one] who does such things - i buy and sell used hard drives and ssd's - so they are tested in laptops - its not good enough to test them in an external enclosure as problems can show if they are used as a boot drive rather than an external drive - so they are fitted as boot drives and the os cloned to them you may see that as a fake problem - it is not - i am simply asking - to lock the software to the motherboard is fair enough if thats what you want but why more
  20. Increase donating to get few keys. Like I had done. thats one way - i prefer mine - i prefer a one time key that is not locked to the system but paranoia prevails so thats not going to happen so why not link to the one think that is not likely to change - certainly in a laptop - to link the key to a hard drive is hardly the best way - certainly today with ssd's being added to existing systems
  21. @BM - is there any way you would look at the key so it is not locked to the hard drive but only the motherboard - i have a couple of laptops that i would like to put aeroglass on but the drives can and do change as i move things round - so locking aeroglass to that part of the laptop is a pain - unlike a desktop the motherboard is unlikely to change on a laptop
  22. it works - i think - made a mess of my colours which are grays - dark and light - one was pretty much bleached out so not to my liking - did not play much after that
  23. You are correct. That why I have few keys for. they should not be needed - fine have a key but [imo] they should not be locked to changeable hardware such as a hard drive or anything else - all it does is alienate people - for a piece of software thats unlocked by donation its ridiculous - if the model is donation then fine - make it that but dont wrap it up with keys that stop working
  24. the wonders of the 'donation' system - i think you need to go to his site and de activate that key and get a new one - no idea how long that takes - has always seemed a poor system to me but it seems others are happy with it [or maybe not!]
  25. if thats with an update then you have a problem - if the update is via the insider program then maybe using search would have saved a post
