[-] License Key invalid
« on: September 01, 2010, 08:34:15 AM »

After entering the registration key PRO Rebrandable, I got the following message:
The license key you entered is either not valid or a connection to the licensing server was not possible.

Unfortunately, the "enter license key" function in the current version of SnippetMaster is no longer working with the new license system I just implemented.  I am working on a fix for this, and hope to have it ready within a week or so.

In the meantime, I can enter the license key for you manually if you provide me with the FTP login information for your /snippetmaster folder.  Let me know.

Alternatively, you can enter the license key yourself by editing one of the Snippetmaster database files. Here are the instructions:

1. Download and open the "/snippetmaster/snippet-db/random_name/program_settings.php" for editing.

2. Look for this text around line #5:

----------------------
license#
----------------------

3. Add your license key after the number (#) sign, like this:

-----------------------
license#SM-PRO-yourkeyhere
-----------------------

(Make sure there is no spaces or anything else after the key.)

4. Look for this text around line # 8:

-----------------------
program_name#SnippetMaster LITE
-----------------------

5. Change it to this:

-----------------------
program_name#SnippetMaster PRO
-----------------------

6. Now save the file and upload it to your website over the old file.

7. Now go to your SnippetMaster login page.  The first time this page loads, it will show you a "invalid offline key" error.  Ignore this error and just reload the SnippetMaster login page again.  Now you should see the program name has changed to "SnippetMaster PRO". This means the license key was successfully installed.

If you have any trouble with these steps, please let me know and I will help right away.  Thank you for your patience as I work to fix this license update problem.

Thanks!
