The software is shareware. It takes a heck of a lot of time to produce good software and even more to handle queries etc. from others using it. Apart from the joy of sharing I would appreciate a small token from you if you plan on using the software. The registration is only $10 US. Payment can easily be made through PayPal with any credit card or your own PayPal account if you have one.

How to start the registration process.

There are two phases, first you make a payment at PayPal, then on receipt of payment, I will send you an unlock code which will register your copy. In order to send you your unlock code I need your email address. Be assured that the email address will only be used for sending you your code or communications to you about RemoteSign. It will not be sold or used to send you spam.

When you register the software it is registered on a single machine. The unlock code will only work on that machine. You only need to register one machine since it can be controlled without any problems from other copies, even unregistered copies. Be sure to start the registration process from the machine that you want to be registered, i.e. the machine that will be used to run the sign you expect people to be looking at.

To start the Registration..

Bring up the control screen by pressing ENTER on the sign.

Click the 'Register' button near the top.

Enter your email address and then click the "Make secure on-line payment now" button.
You will be taken to the secure PayPal web site where you can either enter your Credit card information or log into your PayPal account and make the payment.

If the machine is not connected to the Internet, you can click the button called "This machine has no Internet access". It will create an HTML file for you that you can use on a machine that does have Internet access to register.

Once payment has been made, I will be informed of the payment along with your registration key and email address. I will then email you an unlock code that you copy and paste into the Unlock code field.

You can also register your copy from this page. Enter your registration code (44 characters long) and click the button! You will be taken to the secure PayPal website to complete the transaction ($10.00)

Unlocking your copy

When you receive your unlock code you will get a code in the email and there will also be a tiny attachment. You can either place the attached file in the same folder as the RemoteSign program (usually something like C:\Program Files\RemoteSign), or you can paste the unlock code into the registration dialog.

What are the benefits of registering RemoteSign

  1. It makes your continued use of the program legitimate. You may get a nice warm fuzzy feeling.
  2. It allows you to control the number of stuck cells.
  3. The sign will no longer display (Unregistered) next to the clock.
  4. You will not get a registration reminder after the 10th auto file load.

What if I do not Register?

  1. Over time the number of stuck cells on the sign will increase.
  2. After a certain number of automatic file loads you will get a registration reminder.
  3. You will be wracked with guilt.
