Activation Key Issues

Hey! new user here, I'm having issues with activating my copy of Pyxel Edit.
I downloaded both Air and portable versions and whenever I try to register it I get an "Invalid activation Key" message when pasting my key (whether I'm including the tags for BEGIN and END or not).

I don't know if this is a bug or I'm missing something, but I thought this would probably be the best place to post about this, feel free to move it onto the bugs forum or whichever one you want if you feel this should be placed somewhere else in the forums

    Hi and welcome!
    That's not good. It seems to be an encoding issue with certain characters. I changed your registered name slightly (removed the ´ , I hope you don't mind) so it should work now.
    I will fix the bug asap. If anyone else has this issue let me know.
  • Hey, I'm also having the same issue. My name is Rogério Perdiz, so I guess is also due to the accentuation problem.

    Hi, rogper! I removed the accentuation for you so it should work if you grab the key again.
  • Hey Danik!
    Thank you very much, it works now.
    Also thanks for making Pyxel Edit I'm really excited to explore it potentials!
  • Hi, I'm having the saaame issue, I just upgraded today and the code is broken. My name is Chibwé Mweene. Could you please help me out? Also , do I have to reinstall it, after the code is fixed?
  • DanikDanik Posts: 776
    Hi Chibwé, sorry about that! I have changed your name so it should work if you grab a new key. You don't need to reinstall.
  • Thanks so much! It worked.
  • Hello, my name is João Lamego and I am having trouble activating the program, I guess it is related to the fact that my name has a '~' over the 'a', I don't mind if you change it for just 'Joao Lamego' as long as I can use PE fine.

    Hi João, I have changed your licence name so it should work now. Sorry about that.
  • Hi.  I'm having similar issues.  My name is Gordon Cranford.  Not sure why that won't work, but it's not.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

    Hi, sorry about that.
    I tested your key and it doesn't work in 0.3.100, but it does in the latest version (0.3.101).
    Let me know if it still doesn't work for you in the latest version.
  • I too am having this problem. My name is Austin (I didnt add my last name :P)

    Hi Austin,
    Seems like there still is something glitchy. Which OS are you on? Could you try clicking in the text field and moving the cursor around with the arrow keys? The key is validated on key release, so maybe that event is missed somehow.
  • Okay, that worked. I'm on Windows 8. Thanks for the help.
  • DanikDanik Posts: 776
    Ok, cool. Then I also know what the problem is.
  • Same problem, just got it today, tried to activate and my code is no good it says.
  • DanikDanik Posts: 776
    HatTruck, sorry about that. Which OS are you on? Did you try to move the cursor with the arrow keys in the key text box? Also check that you got the whole key without any extra spaces.
  • Using windows 7, I don't think I moved anything.
  • I tried it on my work computer and it worked... go figure

  • sgdf0, did you follow the activation instructions?
    My key doesn't work!
    The activation key should look like this (including the first and last line):
    Some name
    If the key you are using looks like this:
    then you need to use it on this page to get the activation key:
