You can call them direct at 866-333-2160. They will give you the access code for your software. (as long as it hasn't been registered by someone else) A quick fix for the time being would be to uninstall the program and then re-install it. You'll have 30 days before it locks you out again.

Adam's right, call them and explain.

But the uninstall/reinstall technique doesn't work. You actually need to reformat the drive to remove the tags that are left by the original install.

MTRENO/GRABS:

If what Grabs is saying is correct you probably don't need to reformat your drive, but you can perform a reg hack by typing 'regedit' after clicking on Start-->Run from the start menu in windows. The lakemaster folder should be under the SOFTWARE sub-directory of your HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE directory. Delete only the folder containing the lakemaster software!!! Please don't attempt this if you have any doubt of what you are doing as deleting the wrong folder can lead to disaster!

Best way is to probably call LakeMaster and get a new key.

Take care and good luck with your software!

I bought this software about 2 months ago and can't wait until first ice to start marking ton's of waypoints.
