Lost license codes

The license code retrieval system allows you to enter the email address you used at the time of purchase and have your license code re-mailed to that address. Licenses are tied to the purchase address for security reasons, so it is important to correctly specify the address when purchasing, and to keep good backups in the event that you should change addresses. It is recommended that you burn a copy of your license notice to CD and also keep a printed copy.
