Registering Bartender's Companion

 

About our new registration process

Starting with Bartender's Companion 2004, we have started using a new system for managing product licenses. This system was designed to make it easier for us to manage licenses, prevent software piracy and make it easier to transfer licenses between users and computers.

Bartender's Companion's end-user license agreement (EULA) entitles you to use the software on one computer for each copy of Bartender's Companion that you have purchased.

The new license management system requires a serial number, a license key and an unlock key to unlock your copy of Bartender's Companion. The serial number and license key can be found on the back of your CD jewel case, or in the product license e-mail if you ordered a downloadable copy of Bartender's Companion. When you register Bartender's Companion, the license server will issue an unlock key that will only work on your computer.

There are two ways that you can register Bartender's Companion:

  1. Instant registration: Register from within Bartender's Companion.
  2. Register online at RadiumTechnologies.com: Visit our web site to get your unlock key.

What to do if your registration fails

If your registration fails, don't panic! Most licensing issues can be resolved very quickly and easily. Registration can fail for four different reasons:

  1. Missing license information: Did you forget to enter your name or e-mail address?
  2. Typographical errors: Did you forget to include the dashes in your serial number, license key or unlock key?
  3. License violations: If your copy of Bartender's Companion is already being used on more computers than allowed by the license agreement, you may not be able to register you product. This can occur if you have replaced your hard drive or purchased a new computer since you first registered Bartender's Companion. Please post a message on the Bartender's Companion Support Forum and we will gladly reset your license(s) as necessary.
  4. Revoked license: If you returned Bartender's Companion or received a refund, subsequent registration attempts will fail. If you feel you have received this message in error, please post a message on the Bartender's Companion Support Forum and we will gladly reset your license(s) as necessary.
