[Archived] I get asked to register the program every time I open it


  • . ACID Pro
  • . SOUND FORGE Audio Studio


  • . Registration & activation

The registration procedure starts every time I open the application.

This problem is caused by a registry entry being assigned incorrectly.
To fix the problem, you'll need to edit the Windows Registry.
Follow the steps below to do this.

  1. Close the application.
  2. Press Windows Key+R and enter "Regedit" in the window that opens.
  3. Open the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sony Creative Software > [Program Name] > [Version Number] > License.
  4. Right-click the folder labeled "License" and select "Delete". 
  5. When asked if you want to delete the folder, click "Yes".
  6. After deleting the folder, close the Registry Editor.
  7. Start the program again.
