  • registration problem ?????

    I tried to register my copy of RR using the provided reg tool. After accepting the terms I was presented with the email and hard drive screen. How can I find my hard drive serial number, it is not displayed by the tool ?

        check the "Windows Management Instrumentation" service
        it should be running...

        is this OS Nlited?

          How do you go about doing that ?

          is this OS Nlited?
          No it is not Nlited. Actually it is a fresh 2 month old install with all the goodies

            its in services... right click my computer, manage, services

            be really odd if your hard drive didnt have a serial number

            there is also this (wmi diag), but i got a hunch, wmi is fine

              I found a tool on the net that shows you the HD serial number
              the number that it shows is 8817-5421. Do you think that this is correct?

                no, that looks like a volume serial number
                and for this whole thing to work, WMI needs to return a valid mfg serial number
                if that doesnt happen, you cant use the registration system
                and wmi might be working...

                try this app... does it show valid data...
                neat app too
                HERE is what my cpu looks like

                    mitchjs, I tried your app and it shows valid data on all components.

                    I tried guinos tool and I got a serial number WD-WCANM2463823. I sent this in along with my email and got back the registration code which a copied into rr.ini.
                    I then set the date ahead 1 year and tested RR. Unfortunately the warning screen came up.


                    Edit.
                    The code the I got had the form
                    regcode=........
                    regmail=.........
                    At first I thought that I was supposed to copy also the line regmail=... to my rr.ini
                    After removing the regmail=... entry from my .ini file everything is OK.

                    Thank you both for your time an patience

                      I would drop the WD- from the beginning of that serial number and try again.

                        like i said, WMI has to work for the registration system to work...
                        doesnt matter if you got the Serial other way...
                        we are going to add an alternative method inside RR code to get it via S.M.A.R.T.

                          @tolisn:
                          I have updated the Reg tool (on the FAQ thread) and the RR Install on Nisu -- if you could test at least the Reg tool (to see if it's reading the serial now), I'd appreciate the feedback.
