Installed and working just fine here. I didn't burn it to CD's* but used UltraIso to extract to HD* and installed from HD. Of course* if U wish* you could also burn the files to a CD and install from there.
How to install: Install it to wherever you want it installed. No key necessary.
No registration needed so far* and I set the date forward and so to provoke it to force registration* but none so far.
Maybe best to have your firewall set to not allow the program to "Call home"
Enuff of sources for these.
