Registration

Aurora for Windows programs must be registered before they will work. If they are not registered, generally they will function as normal, except they will not talk, or type words from the prediction box. If you choose Registration Information from any of the Aurora programs' menus, you will see a box like the one below.

If you are using a full version, you likely have not purchased a license for the Aurora program you are trying to use. Contact Aurora Systems sales for more information.

If you are using a demo version of Aurora and are receiving this error message, you need to get a newer demo serial number from Aurora Systems' world wide web site http://www.aurora-systems.com/ by clicking on Demos at the top menu bar. You do not need to download the demo again, you just need to use a text editor to update the Aurora Registration number in \AWIN3\AURORA.INI

Checking/Changing Registration Info

Registration is done either through a registration number assigned by Aurora Systems, or via a file in your Aurora for Windows directory called AURORA.REG. The registration number can be found on the back of your installation guide, or on your original invoice and is usually entered during installation. The AURORA.REG file is provided on the first distribution disk of versions of Aurora for Windows prior to 2.05 and should be automatically installed when you install those versions of Aurora for Windows.

Aurora 3.0 for Windows

If the Registration... menu option indicates that your software is not registered, and the About menu option indicates that you have version 3.0 or higher, you can run the Registration Info Editor from your Aurora for Windows group to edit your registration information. If you are still using a .REG file for registration, follow the procedure for Aurora for Windows Prior to 2.05 below.

Aurora 2.05 for Windows

If the Registration... menu option indicates that your software is not registered, and the About menu option indicates that you have version 2.05, use NotePad or WordPad to check that:

1) The INIFILEV3= setting in the [Aurora] section of C:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI is correct. The usual value for this setting is:

[Aurora]

INIFileV3=C:\AWIN3\AURORA.INI

Note that Windows may not necessarily be in the \WINDOWS directory, the directory can be called anything.

2) The Registration= setting in the [Aurora] section of C:\AWIN3\AURORA.INI is correct. The usual value for this setting is:

[Aurora]

Registration=A2025-VFREG-BH48W-GR8ET-00047 Your Name

If you find that all settings are correct, and you have purchased a license for Aurora for Windows, please contact Aurora Systems technical support. If you are using a demonstration copy, the program has likely expired, please contact Aurora Systems about getting a new registration number.

Aurora for Windows prior to 2.05

Make sure:

1) The file AURORA.REG exists in your C:\AWIN2 directory. If it does not, then copy it from your first Aurora for Windows installation diskette.

2) The INIFILEV2= setting in the [Aurora] section of C:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI is correct. The usual value for this setting is:

[Aurora]

INIFileV2=C:\AWIN2\AURORA.INI

3) The Registration= setting in the [Aurora] section of C:\AWIN2\AURORA.INI is correct. The usual value for this setting is:

If you find that all settings are correct, and you have purchased a license for Aurora for Windows, please contact Aurora Systems technical support. If you are using a demonstration copy, the program has likely expired, please contact Aurora Systems about getting a new demonstration version.
