well in my opinion che's reg system has not a nicely designed interface.
I think the one gma uses is good for the customer if any.
even after a reformat the ids stay the same.
Its quite simple to.
I think part of the trouble is when you base the codes off the windows ids.
when the system is reformatted, the windows ids change and your codes are then useless. Taking a snapshot of the hardware is a bit more secure since unless something changes like the bios, or the hard drive you should be ok. saying that if you upgraded the bios that would change though how often will a standard user do that? it gets a bit more complex if you are a hardware tester or beta tester of many things or require a regular change of hardware for testing or whatever.

Hi Shaun,
Yes, Che's system works,  but I've found cracks for that one. Even that one,
Iddon't know of any systems that you probably can't find cracks for.

well the hardwre lock is what will happen.
its safe previding keys don't change on reformat.
I must say I like how che has it where licence files are tied to each
system.
