Hi there Ian,
Yup, I understand your thirst for a more usable interface, in terms of serial number input efficiency.
Unfortunate as it seems, there was a user, in the not too distant past who was actually using means of reg editing and modification to "hack" DVDInfoPro. This was publically disclosed on other forums. We were very displeased by these events. As a result, we were forced to keep the reg. key and associated serial number out of clear-sight from the user. As a result, in the most recent versions, it cannot be "pulled back" to the user when a new version is installing. We are thinking of safe ways to deal with this, so that your request CAN be fulfilled eventually! :)
Keep your eye on the ground, one of these days, your request will be implemented.
Hope that helps!
Glory may be fleeting, but obscurity is forever
