Software News   Software News : MakeCD now freeware!!
   posted by VooDoo on 10-Mar-2007 17:31:40 (4503 reads)
MakeCD used to be shareware and some shops sold boxed versions together with a license. This worked well in the past and we are thankful to everyone who found MakeCD worth paying for. However, MakeCD sales have long ago stopped being a relevant source of income for us. At the same time it has become harder and harder for interested users to get hold of a MakeCD license as more and more Amiga shops ceased business.

Therefore we decided to draw a line and stop selling MakeCD altogether: now it is available for free. You still need a valid license key for the existing binaries. Here is a valid, unrestricted key:

considering the fact that it now is available for free and has reached a stable state i'd guess that this is the official "end" of makecd. we have what we have.
i'd like to see a "makedvd" with updated gui. but this is a dream
afaik the makecd makers stated several times that makecd will never become support for dvd writing.
all our hope now is "frying pan" and mabe "burnit" (if the author finally is willing to do an amiga version).

byebye...

I wish we had a larger and growing community to support this nice software. This is a very good gesture they have done for us.

Yes, FryingPan is nice software also. The author is well tuned to things Amiga.

So I go to the given site and see two lines:

Serial Number: 555555555
License Key: H8HsRww)7Uz)!iXE5PUMfgP#VymA6

What do I do with them? The registration requester lets me
type in the serial number above but it still says just below
that is invalid and that is the end of it.

@NoelFuller

Haven't tried yet, but probably you need to do something like:

echo "H8HsRww)7Uz)!iXE5PUMfgP#VymA6" >L:makecd.key

That's what it looks like to me anyway (no idea if that is the correct path/filename).

Simply copy and paste H8HsRww)7Uz)!iXE5PUMfgP#VymA6 in registration request of unregisterd MakeCD and it works :)
At least works for me...

So it does, except it appears one must do it every time.

Sounds like a loaded question - On an A1 XE G3

Sad to hear that development has stopped.

It would be nice if they puiblished the sources (or at least parts like the GUI for example)

whatever you meant to say with "Sounds like a loaded question "

i've just tryed again the registration under MOS for PowerUP and it works.

The only code needed is H8HsRww)7Uz)!iXE5PUMfgP#VymA6

Whatever you will type in Name, Surname, City etc, will lend you in a registration number as:

#55555555 registered to:
professional editor (or so... its localized in italian here)

Hence or your doing something wrong or the registration thing fails on your system (MakeCD uses a particular registration procedure that is affected by the filesystem)

Edit- and it still works under AmigaOS3.9 as well.

As a note... not sure if this is important (theres a note on the site thats not clear to me). Download the latest MakeCD 3.2d Beta11 and apply the reg using the new MakeCD executable.

MakeCD 3.2d beta11

Grab

This is so nice of the author to release their work.

The key worked for me.

My only question is if one can write multi-session CDs with MakeCD and how? Unfortunately, I don't have the manual, otherwise I would have RT?M!
