Hello
I purchased Bob's Track Builder Pro.
Got the mail with the key,
but when I want to download BTB from bobstrackbuilder.net it says I shall login to continue,
although I am logged in already.
I clicked on the verification link which I also got per mail, too.
So I am wondering if there are alternative download links.

Yeah, I purchased the pro version.
I also believe it's a site glitch.
However, Brendon answered via mail and I was able to download the pro version.
Now I am stuck at uploading the hardware ID I generated.
The site keeps saying
" Filename does not match the current version. It should be named HardwareId.v1.0.0.1. Please ensure you are using the latest version of BTB and try again."
I named the file exactly "HardwareID.v1.0.0.1. and the file details of Bob's Track Builder I downloaded also say version 1.0.0.1.
I hope that Brandon replies to this mail, too.
Thanks for posting your ideas so far :)

the name of the file has to be exactly HardwareId.v1.0.0.1 or in my case: HardwareId.v1.0.0.0 even when i use the version BTBpro v1.0.0.1.
HardwareId.v1.0.0.1 without an extension

concerning the login, it is a glitch. You are logged in. So when you go to "Nandoo" a pull down screen follows where all your details are.

Thanks Erwin, but when I run the HID application it automatically generates a txt file so how can I remove the extension?

As you can see the filename is HardwareID, seemingly without the .txt extension, but when I look at the details there is a .txt extension and I can't remove the extension there.

Thanks Brendon

I guess your description was correct.
You wrote "To obtain a license you first need to run the "Create Hardware" application, it will generate a file in the BTB folder which must be uploaded to the BTB website."
Nothing happened using the Create Hardware ID.exe so I tried the HID.exe.
I read a post that ALL executables need to be run in admin mode so I checked if everything's running in admin mode and the Create Hardware ID.exe now creates the hardware ID without a file extension and the website accepted the upload :)
