Re: New features JFW 6.0 that I dislike

Hi.
I am not the orginal person that started this thread,
but this is my experience and what the techs told me.
any change in your computer requires a new key.
I added an additional hard drive. i had
to reauthorize.
I replaced a bad floppy drive, another key gone.
I temporarily put a different sound card in
to test it, another key. 
by the way, jfw doesn't tell you what has prompted the reauthorization,
it just says that you must run the proceedure or
run in demo mode.
this problem has happened to me even if I haven't changed anything
that I know of.
I have had to call fs 3 times so far to
have them fix my keys.
the last time, the tech told me to buy a dongle
to solve the problem, more money for fs of course.
