  • Magic Registration?

    Hi.

    I have very recently updated to Win7; I did the install on a brand new SSD
    with all other drives disconnected.

    When I came to (re)install Beyond Compare 3 (with as later version to
    that originally installed), I went to (re)register.

    It told me that it was already registered.

    How did it know, The previous registration was on a separate disk that
    now has a new drive letter; any previous registry entries are inaccessible
    to the new Win7 installation.

    Needless to say, I am confused.

    Mike.

    Hello,

    Our registration information is usually stored in your Windows User's %AppData% directory. If your upgrade process brought over any Windows information, and you are using the same Windows User account, this was likely included. It would have your BCSetting .xmls as well, so sessions and the like would carry over, too.

    Otherwise, your registration may be in the Install directory, which if still used would be present.
