Not keeping passwords & activations

My Roboform program is not keeping it's activation. I've re-activavated it three times, and it does not keep. Plus none of the passwords in my system are kept, even though I checked th box to save them. Is there a setting in 7 somewhere that I need to check?

This is a question that relates to Roboform (not Windows) so the best solution would be to ask them.

This may be due to the roboform application not being fully Windows 7 compatible yet. One thing you could try is run the application as administrator, (right click run as...), Activate the application and set your passwords, then hopefully they will be retained.

This is caused by some older programs insisting in storing settings files in the program folder which under Windows 7, in not accessible to the normal user account maintained by the UAC.

Hopefully after setting the items running as a normal secure user will work as intended

Hope this helps

How Many Activations
Hopefully, I will not have to use this information, but I am curious. I have seen several vague references in this forum about a limitation on the number of times you can activate using a retail and/or a upgrade disc. Does anyone have more detailed information?
