Where/How can I get registration key?

Post by aussie43 » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:29 am

I am not blind, but I can't find anywhere how to get the registration key for the program to keep working.

You need to install the current "Beta key", which is always found in the topic, Which is always found in the topic MakeMKV is free while in beta in the announcements section.

Applying it can be tricky on older versions; You have to set your system DATE (don't worry about the time) back to a point where the version was current. In the case of 1.12.2, that would be in July, so setting the system date to July 15 2018 would work. Start MakeMKV, then go to Help->Register, and put the current beta key in. After that, you can set the system date back to current.

To BUY a permanent key, that link is under Help->Purchase in the program, or https://makemkv.com/buy/ if you don't want to fire the program up first.

Thanks very much - I found it and it works (so far).

I also considered buying the software, but $AU 88 is a bit too much for an occasional rip.

Would the developer consider some "light" cheaper version?

He has been in business for 10+ years at least and I have yet to see him consider something like that personally speaking. I assume that is why he has the FREE beta option instead which has been going on for quite some time.

I mean, you can’t get a better offer than free.

How do you change the system date?

That varies with the operating system. On Windows, you can RIGHT click on the clock in the task bar, and select "Adjust date/time" from the context menu. I think it works similarly on MacOS, but I do not know the magic sequence to bring up the context menu.

Left click on the time (top Right), menu drops down, "Open Date and Time Preferences".
