how do I put in registration code after update?

Postby JP » 30 Nov 2009, 18:40

Hi, just today I upgraded to the latest version of Tennis Elbow, and when I go to open it it tells me I it is an evaluation version. This is false, as I bought the game several months ago. I have my registration code recorded from when I first bought the game, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get to a screen to enter it. None of the pulldown menus have a "register the game" or "enter registration code" option that I can see.

Am I totally blind? Or is there a bug here that for some reason the updated version of the game isn't "seeing" that I already had an older, registered version of the game?

Usually if you plan to update the game, the key.txt will be retained in place. For example, if you uninstall the game like I do, it will ask you if you want to retain the saved game(Profile) and the key.txt. Or if you just reinstall overwriting the previous one, theres no problem with this, the key.txt will be surely in place. In your case, I dont know what happened but you may put your key.txt in the main directory of the TE2009 if you still have the key on hand.

JP has very likely the Mac OSX version (there's no pulldown menus in the Windows version ;) ).

You have to reinstall your license key from your license key email, or copy the "Key.txt" file from your previous installation folder to the new one.

Yes, I do have the mac version (sorry I forgot to mention that in my first post). And copying the key.txt and putting it into my new game folder did the trick. Thanks! :D
