well to be honest i'm 17 years old, i need the program for school, they handed round the cd in class wich everyone used to install at home. and after that somebody actually registered it so everybody had to use a keygen. hence the reason why i needed a keygen for it. i know stealing is wrong but i just dont have that much money to hand out on it and waste on something i'll use only twice.
as soon as i'm done with the program its going off my pc aswell.
seems to be fixed now since i deleted the registry keys. although thanks for offering your help people.
This is not an excuse.
If anything this makes the issue more dire.
You (being the honest, moral person you are) go back to your terminal-wally teachers and tell them you can't do the project because you won't take part in pirating software. If they give you lip, you go higher and nail their rears to the wall. Teachers/professors aren't above the law. Distributing illegal software, then having everyone use key-gens to get around it, isn't okay.
No one can fail you because you refuse to use illegal software or partake in software piracy. If they do, you get your lawyer.
End of story.
