Interface/registration questions
« on: September 20, 2010, 10:40:07 AM »

It hasn't been a good morning... I woke up to find the machine that runs AH dead.  Hard Drive failure.  I am trying to recover but if I can't I had a couple questions. 

If I am unable to recover my AH file, is there any way to download the timers/macros from the interface?

In the event I get clean install of windows, when I reinstall AH and my plugins, will my serial #'s work again?  I will be severely annoyed if they are one use numbers.

Backups, a must do. Under the heading of "we're all human and don't do the backups". you can try the following, it is only thing I use with hard drive problems.  Spinrite http://www.grc.com/intro.htm

you will need to purchase the software it's about $90. You will need to be able to burn an Optical disc, or have a working floppy.
if it can recovered, Spinrite will do it. If it can't be recovered, or if it has a large number of defects after recovering, replace the hard drive.  Good luck!

I don't believe there is a way to upload from the cm15. 

The registration numbers should still be good, unless you installed AHP a number of times.  If they don't work then you can always request the numbers from their website.  You can do a search for registration numbers on the forum.  That will give you the website that you need.

Sorry about the hd crash.

Some time ago I had a problem that initially looked like a hard drive problem.  I moved it to another similar pc and installed it as a secondary drive.  That pc booted off of the primary drive and saw the new, 'failed' drive.  I was able to continue to use it as a secondary drive.  It must have been something in the boot sector that prevented it from coming up as a primary drive.

A good source of help with pc problems is another forum,

http://www.pctechbytes.net/forums/forum.php.

Those forum members are as knowledgeable and as helpful with pc problems as folks are here with X10 topics.
