Hi..

Is possible to add an option to De-authorize Neobook license on PC. ? There are times that i need to work with public PC's but i don't want leaving from that workspace to leave Neobook registered with my license.
Can this been done also with plugins.???

Thanks

Hi smartmedia,

If I understand well, the task can be achieved simply deleting the appropiate keys on the Windows Registry. Simply put this lines on a "DeleteKeys.reg" file:

Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NeoSoft]


Caution: When you execute the file, the entire "NeoSoft" is deleted from the registry, so NeoBook start from the scratch when executed. (1)

(1) Dont do it in house boys! Read a couple of messages bellow.

Hi again,

I forget to say something: you can execute the "RegEdit" program (press WINDOWS KEY + R and type "regedit"), then navigate to the NeoSoft keys:

Code: Select all
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software -> NeoSoft


... select the key and click with right button and choose "export". So you get a file with all NeoSoft keys, and now you can "set/unset" when needed.

Bad,

Something is wrong. In fact I can remove the "NeoSoft" key, but, NeoBook appear registered. Rare. Because not appear my register data, and before it's appear I remember.

So... maybe the "key" for unregistry NeoBook is not under "NeoSoft" key, but other. And I recomended not to execute the reg file I propose above, because even installing NeoBook again this "rare things" persists. :(

I am sorry.

Since neobook uses Armadillo protection, there is no way to bypass protection info by simple registry edits. There must be a special way to do this by armadillo itself, it is a question for neobook devs to provide such an option.

Hi,

I think Tony can have reason.

You can use the following command line:

NeoBook.exe /UNREGISTER
