Q: How do I register the program?
A: To register the program, you should go to the registration page ( http://www.freebienotes.com/buy/index.html ) and pay for the program. After that, a message with your registration key will be sent to the mailbox you specify. Then open the program options (the "Registration" tab), enter your registration code in the "Enter registration code" field and click the "Registration" button. Another method of registration is entering key to the "Unlock" field and click the button in the reminder window.
Q: The program informs me that my registration key is incorrect. Why is it so?
A: Make sure that your key corresponds to the version you are using. You can find this information in the message with the registration key you receive after you buy the program. If the version is correct, check if the key is intended for this program: the keys for Power Notes and Dynamic Notes do not coincide!
Q: I get following message: The program runs under administrator rights, but cannot access the system registry. What can I do to fix it?
A: The most probably reason of this problem is Vista User Account Control (UAC) disable access for Power Notes (with your approval on the first start).
For disable UAC control you should make the following operation:
