Licence Renewal

Jul 3, 2011
My licence runs out soon and would like to know how to renew it.
What's the process? Because it feels like a process.
I'm no computer wizz, so if you can put it in simple terms ,it would be much appreciated.

when you have to renew the licence, the program locks up.
How to renew:
1. Create a new HDID.txt file with CreateHardwareId.exe. It is found in your BTB root folder
It creates this file: HardwareId.v1.0.0.1 (no *.txt)
2. Log in to the site:
3. Go to [login in name] > licence
4. Go to "upload BTBpro licence" or "upload BTB Evo licence"
5. upload the HardwareId.v1.0.0.1 file. (Location of the HardwareId.v1.0.0.1 (e.g. C:\Program Files\BobsTrackBuilder\HardwareId.v1.0.0.1)
6. Set the amount of months you want it to be valid.

Experienced BTB users recomment strongly to choose 2 or 4 months. When you have to change some hardware (CPU or MoBo) BTB needs a new HDID! We already have a case of someone who has to wait a FULL YEAR for a new licence.

7. Submit file

8. Within 24 - 48 hours you get a new licence.
9. Delete the old licence file before placing the new one in the BTB root folder.
