Update: Many people are having trouble getting the registration code. I don’t know why but it seems like some e-mail addresses are not receiving the e-mail with the registration code. If you register with an e-mail address and don’t get the code instantly, please register with a different e-mail address – this promotion is working, there just seems to be a problem with some e-mail addresses. I know for sure that Hotmail, Gmail, and TrashMail e-mail addresses are receiving the codes (I tested it with those e-mail addresses myself). If you are still unable to get the registration code e-mail, please clear your browser’s cache and try again, or try using a different browser. I have contacted Wondershare about the issue and hopefully we can get it resolved. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Update2: Anyone that had problems getting the registration information can e-mail Claire at claire.lee [at] wondershare.com and request the registration information (mention that you tried to get it via dotTech’s recent promotion but you didn’t get the registration information).
