question about .key files

Greetings,

I just upgraded to windows home premium... and i have some software i bought called texture workshop.
the instructions to register.. when i bought the software was to doubleclick the file reg.key.

*instructions from e-mail here*

Dear Purchaser,

Thank you for your purchase.
Your personal registration key is attached to the letter.
You have just to save the regkey.key file to your hard drive and then
double-click it.
After this easy procedure your copy of the program is successfully registered.
Feel free to ask us if something is not clear.

If you receive this letter without an attachment please let us know and
we will use another way to deliver the registration key to you.

they do not seem to know what to do when asking about windows 7.

I can provide reciepts that i did purchase this software if needed.

I would like to know how to get the registration to work.

thank you.

What happens when you double click the reg key file ? do you get an error?, or a message saying it was imported?

If not you may simply need to associate *.key files with regisrty in your cpanel>default programs>default programs.

You can also right click and use open with (the app should be regedit.exe)
