Enter PassWord

GeeJay2000 Hello guys,

It seems that I found the compiler I want, but the instructions are pityful. I set the e-book to ask for a PassWord after 2 uses or openings.

At the 3rd. opening, it asks for "PassWord Number 623". I generated a list of 1000 PassWords.

Which of those 1000 PassWords is the "Number 623" ?
Should I count 623 lines down the text file and find the PassWord in the line number 623 ?

Boy . . . !
This is confusing, and not even explained poorly in the Help file.

Any good soul out there that provides me with a proper and a reasonably well explained answer will receive from me U$S 10.00

Thanks a lot !

Storyman GeeJay2000,

You are on the right track. Here is a review of the basics (as I understand them.)

When you create a list of passwords two list of numbers are generated. The first list is the Key Code, which is number from 1 to "whatever number of passwords you selected to generate." For each Key Code there is a corresponding Registration Number.

The Key Code that is selected is based on the serial number of the hard drive. This is important because when someone gives a friend a copy of your ebook there is less than .1% chance of the two friends having the same Key Code.

Let's say the ebook gives the keycode 326. What it is asking for is the Registration Number that corresponds to number 326.

Your life will be a lot easier if you consider using an Automatic Payment System like MicroCreations. You can find them at:


Currently, I'm waiting for them to complete the APS for 2CheckOut, which I prefer over ClickBank. The last I heard is that it should be soon.

Hope this helps.

No, you don't need to count anything.

If you just want to know what password 623 is, in Edit Security in the compiler, look for the password next to the number 623 in that screen.

If you want a file where the passwords are labelled with numbers, try saving the list of passwords (from Edit Security) as a PHP or ASP file, and then open that in a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
