Inserting Registration Password - Auto-Copy to Clipboard

This tutorial explains how to enter the registration password into Embird using special "Auto-Copy to Clipboard" command from Embird main menu.

Normally, you can insert the password from e-mail to Embird using standard Windows Clipboard functions ("Ctrl+C" to copy selected text from email to the Clipboard and "Ctrl+V" to paste the text from the Clipboard into "Embird -> Help -> Registration" dialog box - see more details in Inserting and Removing Embird Password tutorial).

Another way of inserting passwords into Embird is to use the PASSWORD.KLC file attached to the e-mail which you receive from us after purchasing Embird registration - this is explained in Inserting Registration Password from PASSWORD.KLC file tutorial. 

However, if you are not familiar with using Clipboard function, nor PASSWORD.KLC file, try to use the "Auto-Copy to Clipboard" command. Assuming you have paid for Embird registration and received an email with registration password from us, please follow these steps:

1 - Run Embird, it will start in "Manager" mode.

2 - Check whether your copy of Embird is "Unregistered" by reading the text in the blue bar at the top of Embird Manager window (arrow 1 in Picture No. 1).

3 - In case you have an unregistered copy, select "Help -> Auto-Copy To Clipboard" command from the main menu (arrow 2 in Picture No. 1).

5 - Run your e-mail software (in this example it is Microsoft Outlook Express) and open the e-mail with passwords which you have received from us after paying for Embird registration at http://www.embird.net/sw/embird/register.htm. Typically, you would receive two e-mails, containing different forms of password. Choose the e-mail without attachment, containing the text form of the password (Picture No. 3).

In case you do not obtain this message, please repeat this step - double click again on e-mail with password - until the message appears.
