Transferring TurboCAD v.9 to new PC

Evening All,

I have been happily using TurboCAD v.9 on an occasional basis (mainly for DIY Projects around the home) for many years - It was installed on my Pentium 4 PC running Win XP; Unfortunately, after 12 years of excellent service it gave up the ghost (Major M/B problem) - I bought myself a new (Core i5) PC running Win 7 Pro that allows me to run (most of) my old Win XP Programs in a Virtual Win XP Window. I re-installed TurboCAD 9 from my original disk and got the "You have 0 days left to Register" message so I uninstalled it from the Virtual XP Mode and tried installing it under Win 7 in " Win XP Compatibility Mode" - This actually worked and when starting, I got the message "you have 28 days left to register" and THIS is where my problem lies;  I have my original program disk but I have lost/mislaid the original CD Case and any reference to Serial numbers/Activation Codes. Can anyone please help?

Key code is either 92GK75 or 92AH75.  You should be able to enter these by choosing the register by telephone option.

Hi Turbotech,

Many thanks for that info but curiously, the next time I started TurboCAD the message "You have .. days left to register" did NOT appear! I did get a message "The Server name or Address could not be resolved" but I could close that window and continue using TurboCAD with no problem - Not quite sure why it seems to work OK now so I'll just happily accept it! I presume the keycodes you gave me would remain valid, should I need to use them in the future?

Have you tried to upgrade? I found a reasonable V19 online.  They have offered updates to this, to V21. 

I would assume the same would be available for your software.  I assume all drawings would be veiwable or transferable to newer versions.

Just a thought!
