Inserting Registration Password from PASSWORD.KLC file

This tutorial explains how to enter the registration password into Embird, so that it stops to expire and turns from evaluation (demo) version into full version. It also explains how to enter the registration numbers for plug-ins (Alphabets, Font Engine, Cross Stitch, Digitizing Studio, Sfumato Stitch, Iconizer). It is supposed that you already have received an e-mail from us, with PASSWORD.KLC file in attachment. The following steps explain what to do with this file, using different e-mail programs (Microsoft Outlook Express and Netscape Communicator).

Note: Another way of password insertion is using the text form of the password and the standard Windows Clipboard functions ("Ctrl+C" to copy selected text from email to the Clipboard and " Ctrl+V" to paste the text from the Clipboard into " Embird -> Help -> Registration" dialog box). This way is explained in Inserting and Removing Embird Password tutorial.

Using Microsoft Outlook Express E-mail Software

1 - Close Embird in case you are running it.

2 - Run Outlook and open the e-mail with passwords which you have received from us after paying for Embird registration at http://www.embird.net/sw/embird/register.htm. Typically, you would receive two e-mails, containing different forms of password. Choose the e-mail with attachment, containing PASSWORD.KLC there.

3 - Click on the clip to show the popup menu (arrow 1 in Picture No. 1).

4 - Choose "Save Attachments" command in popup menu (arrow 2 in Picture No.1).

6 - Click "Save" button to save the file from e-mail attachment into the chosen folder (arrow 4 in Picture No. 2). Overwrite the existing file if necessary. Then continue in step 7 below.

Checking Embird Registration

7 - Now you can verify whether the passwords were successfully inserted into Embird or not. Run Embird, it will detect the "PASSWORD.KLC" file in its main folder and validate the passwords stored there. In case the passwords are accepted, the evaluation version of Embird will turn into full version, and the "Unregistered" caption in the blue bar at the top of Embird Manager window will disappear. Check the blue bar at the top of Embird Manager window - your name should be displayed there in registered Embird (Picture No. 5). You can also check the list of registered plug-ins by selecting "Help -> Installed Plug-ins" command from the main menu.
