    Registry2 extension conflict with Windows 8.1?

    I've had a user report that he can't activate his purchase of my software in Windows 8.1.

    My software stores the key in the registry using the Registry2 extension, and it's worked fine so far for all users of Windows 7 and less. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this? I might need to strip the code out and create a test .mfa file to send to someone with Windows 8.1 to test.

    Actually it's possible the problem could be before the Registry2 extension comes into play. If anyone owns Windows 8.1 and wants some free Productivity / Task Tracking software, just speak up below. All you need to do is punch in a serial key and screenshot/tell me what happens. I can only offer a key to the first person though.

    Are you running the program in Administrator mode?
    Microsoft has raised the security of Windows 8.1. The registry is the fundation of the fragile edifice that Windows represents : any un-wise change in it could make the machine crash : this is the reason why they do not want anyone to access it.

    Instead of storing the Key in the registry why not use flat files? It would make your application more portable.

    As an aside Windows 8 is terrible and so many steps back for Microsoft.
