How to register

How to...

Since sales have dropped beyond the point that the costs outweigh the benefits, CD Wave is now Freeware. Contrary to what the program may say, you can use CD Wave for free, on any machine, for any number of users. Don't worry about the "unregistered" message, the program will not stop functioning

After payment, you will receive a registration code. In CD Wave, choose "About" from the help menu, then click the "Register" button. Fill in your name and code as you received them after payment. Be sure to keep the registration code in a safe place, we suggest you make a hardcopy.

What did registration buy me?

In short, there is no special registered version, registering it just removes the "Unregistered" notice from the title bar and gives you a slightly different 'about' box.

So the result was a clear conscience. I decided against putting effort into a copy-protection scheme that would be defeated anyway. I dislike software with disabled features too. I feel that people that don't pay for this version wouldn't pay anyway.
