You should bring that up in the Altiverb Forum. I now that some audioease
people are on it. Noramlly, software forum don't like people who rants but
your case is worth to tell!

Altiverbers@yahoogroups.com

From my own experienced I did have a second authorization without any
problem but that was 1 year ago. I remember that I did this directly on the
phone...

The bad part of this type of problem is that legit software becomes more and
more a pain to manage where "K" version are very tempting because they just
work without any fuss.

The worse are the Propellerheads software where they ask you randomly to
insert the key disk! Once it happen to me while in tour...

I must admit that I do pay for all my softwares (yes truly!) but I do have K
version in backup!

Good luck!

Louis
