Control Codes - do we need them

Posted by Muz on 07-Dec-2006 16:56

Ok this isn't techncail but I'd like to get a feeling to see if anyone else thinks it would be good to get rid of control codes?? After 10 years its becoming a pet hate of mine to type them in. Especially when you get to the stage when I can almost guess the last 2 characters after entering hte first 3 ....

Ideas? Does anyone else care?

What would you replace them with?

A single serial (like Windows) or a "file" that PSC can ship with the CD or download with the codes in them. Then you just select which "available" products you have for install

I would call Windows more like control codes without serial numbers ... and I do find the serial numbers convenient for tracking license history. I would hate to have to type in control codes for tech support and the like.

FYI: We are planning electronic-based sn/cc distribution file(s); no more typing.
