Is it possible to reinstall BTB pro, without losing the BTB pro licence?

And if it is possible how can i do that.

The situation now is is that the harddisk containing BTB pro has crashed and even when i succeeded to copy the map on a different HD, i get error messages when i try to open the program .

you can't have two copies installed on the same machine, no. if you use a reg cleaner, try not to download one that says it free. has your get more problems.has most use the added a temporary problem,so you think you have to buy it.

try
www.ashampoo.com they make some great utilities. some are trial,but you won't get the above problems. winoptimizer5 or 6 will do that for you.

as i know, btb check a hardware id´. if you use new components, maybe the check fault. I think you must generate a new *.txt and get a new license.

Yes, i had an new HD. My old one crashed. After that i installed windows again. But btb worked still. Maybe the problem is that, after the HD where BTB was installed had problems, i reinstalled the program on a other HD. That could be the problem.

But do i have to buy a new licence then?

No, once purchased, you should get 2 licenses that you can use on different machines.

When you log into BTB website, click on your name, and then 'license'

You should then be able to upload the new Hardware ID text file to get your new license file.

Or just re-download your old license file.

This is an installation issue. If it were a license problem you would be getting a Trial Period expired message.

If you are running Vista please read the sticky at the top of the forums.

I use Windows XP pro. I had a HDD crash (with C:/Windows)
Used a new HDD and reinstalled a genuine Win XP pro. After that BTB still worked. But a two days later also the HDD with BTB on it started to fail.
So now i try to reinstall BTB on a new HDD after a completely uninstall of BTB and i used a trial version of ashampoo 5 to clean the register.
I installed BTB created a new HD id file. What do i have to do with that file?

i get this:

BTB Pro
You have already used your license.

I found out that it looks for the original map at the original HDD.
When i put the original HDD into my PC i can open the program.
