    Registration and hardware codes

    I realize that mp3car's goal is to make streetdeck as hard to crack as possible. But I have to say that I see a problem with using hardware codes to get a registration code.

    These days mobo's gets outdated quickly and replaced every 2 years or so. Would this mean that I have to pay for a new license every time I do a hardware upgrade. Which hardware can I change without having to order a new registration code?

    Registration is based solely on the harddrive.

    The license is for 1 computer at a time.

    Running in developer mode is free for any other computer you want to develop on.

    You can transfer the license two additional times online. Any additional transfers require calling the store and raising a support issue.

    That I am aware of, Streetdeck registers the hardware code to the hard drive you use, not the other hardware. So it ties itself to the hard drive. Changing a motherboard would not affect it. Hard drive die? Well you can currently change the registration up to 2 more times, after that you have to get streetdeck involved with the registration code change. Am I correct God? Correct me if I understood other post incorrectly...

    Edit: I guess you were typing your response as I posted this...

    I plan on using this on a Raid 1 + 0 Setup. 4 hard drives but looks like 1. Will the software still work?

    This has been asked before. If I remember correctly, SD doesnt support RAID setups and it has to be installed to a single drive by itself...

    I dont see how it would really matter to SD, if it was raid or not. To a program is just a drive letter.

    There are currently issues with all tested raid setups and some SATA drives. Running the demo will give you machine codes if your system is compatible.

    There will be a patch in the near future that will fall back to other forms of hardware ids if a hard drive id can not be found.

    Chuck,

    IS there any way (or reason not to) allow SD to be tied to a thumb drive rather than a hard drive? I would like to be able to take the SD environment/skins that are created 'with me' should I have two cars with SD in them as well as be able to modify skins etc. from my home computer. I do have a Wi-Fi connection and certainly can transfer back and forth between environments, but leaving the car computer 'on' is a pain in terms of battery drain!

    This will cull down to the issue of whether you intend to license 'use' of SD vs. 'install.' Wherever the registered thumb drive is, would be where the full registered version would run. I also understand that people lose thumb drives, but set that aside...

    Thumb drives don't typically have readable serial numbers. You will have to do a license transfer between the vehicles.
