When entering the Lame Mp3 serial number customers receive the following
Message,” the serial is valid, but not for this version”.
This only occurs with a few customers and only in regards to the Serial key for the 'LAME MP3 encoder'. We are trying to find out why those few serial keys have issues, and why only on some systems. Till then, we have a work around.
Quick Work around:
Enter the lame serial number directly into the registry:
Create a new entry in the registry under:
Right Click on the Info folder Select (New>String Value)
Right click on new string and Rename to “Serial7”
After changing string name, you now must modify the string (Right Click and Select Modify)
Type in your lame mp3 serial number and click OK
Note: If you use any other name than "Nero 7" for the entry the lame serial number will not be recognized by Nero !
