Advice requested- registering HAL2000

Post by COneill » Thu, 10 Jul 2003 02:16:16

I purchased a copy of HAL2000 from Lowe's when they were discontinuing their
HAL.  I decided to stick with HomeSeer and had sold the HAL2000 to someone
else.  The problem came when they tried to register it, it wouldn't let them.
Based on talks with HAL support, it appears that someone else has registered
the software.  It is apparent to me that someone pulled the disk from the box
(which aren't shrink wrapped BTW) and copied down the registration code.  

I found my receipt and didn't realize until now that it says HAL Deluxe on it.
HAL will not delete the other code and give me one even though I have the
original box, software (still sealed), and receipt!  To me it's hard to believe
that they wouldn't,  when the other person just happened to register the
product first!

Any ideas?
