What is this:


Update: This is indeed a license key. There is no way to cut and paste the key. You have to type it in. Some vendors really hate their customers.


Looks familiar ;-)

Looks like some licencse key. Maybe from your new toy, the BenHur²?

BTW: "Auflösung" wäre "solution" without the "re" - AFAIK.

Is it your IPV9 address?

Don't know what it is - but it kills the layout of your site in my Firefox browser...

Any manufacturer requiring a 234-character license key to be typed in by hand deserves to be named and shamed - eh vowe?

John Keys, 2005-03-21

John, each of those characters can be worth as much as 500 Euro. Is that enough information? ;-)

Please tell me it's not a Microsoft product!

@vowe - none the wiser, I'm afraid. And I probably shouldn't start guessing in case I upset someone here. But it's more expensive than any software I run at home, thank goodness.

The hourly rate for paying someone to key in a license-key that length CORRECTLY doesn't bear thinking about, whatever the software is!

Software Assembled in Pakistan?

"each of those characters can be worth as much as 500 Euro"
Does the manufacturer have three blue letters in it's logo? Does it have a tendency for VERY long product names?

I bet the software vendor comes from Germany and is located near Walldorf.

...100k Euro hmm....

Ulf Hettstedt, 2005-03-23

How much do you want to bet? ;-)

Volker Weber, 2005-03-23

Maybe I should have read your publications list first ;)
