EDIT Updated to describe new fulfillment procedure from Fastspring.
First: There is no “Regsitered version” of the plugins…the evaluation copies you download from our website ARE the registered copies…IF you have a valid key file for them.
You should have received an email containing a link to download a “.key” file within a few minutes of receiving the emailed receipt for your purchase. Download and save that file to your hard disk and then copy it to the same directory as your plugin .dll file. That’s all!
EDIT For Macintosh plugins, put the .key file in the same folder as where you put the .component or .vst file.
EDIT Some email clients and web browsers rename the .key files when saved to disk as .key.txt. If this happens, simply rename them back to the correct name by removing the .txt from the end of the name.
Do not edit or change the .key file in any way or you will very likely break it, resulting in (at best) a non-working registration, and at worst, you’ll cause the plugin to crash your host with an exception.
Also, the file may show with an icon on your computer indicating that it is a Registry key entry or an Apple Keynotes file…it is NOT. Do not attempt to load into the registry or Keynotes by double-clicking it…it won’t work.
Please be sure to store a copy of the file in a safe place. If you lose your license file, you will no longer have a registered plugin. We’ll do our best to help you out, but without adequate proof of purchase and identity we may not be able to reissue a license. Better to just keep your stuff safe and backed up.
