Hard Drive Crash

My notebook computer hard drive crashed. I have all of the data and files, but cannot seem to figure out how to restore everything.

I have the logbook pro files backed up, but have no installation files. I believe my files were version 1.xx.

When I download the files and reinstall the program, it then asks me things that I can't seem to find, like my unlock or registration code. I haven't had to install this for a long long time.

Is this data in my backup files somewhere? Can I just copy the files to where they used to be and hit the logbook pro exe file (I doubt it).

Thanks, Steve Herbets

I have a new hard drive and just downloaded and installed Logbook Pro on it.

However, Logbook Pro won't let me register my software. I still have the program installed on my old hard drive but cannot uninstall it because that drive crashed.
Disregard my previous post.

I was copying my unlock code for APDL into LBP's registration pop-up.

What a dumbass, I know.
