Chapter 2. Getting Started with SONAR 3 > Registering Your Software

Registering Your Software

Do you think registering your software is important? If not, think again. First and foremost, if you don’t register your software, Cakewalk won’t provide you with technical support. You’ll be sorry if you run into a problem that causes you to lose some of your precious work, and the only thing between you and your sanity is the people at Cakewalk. If you’re a techno-wizard and this situation doesn’t worry you, that’s great. But there’s something else you might not have considered. What if your hard drive crashes and you need to reinstall all your software applications, including SONAR? And what if you can’t find the jewel case for your SONAR CD? Yes, the jewel case—not the CD. Why is it significant? Because the jewel case has a little sticker with a very important number printed on it—your serial number. Without that number, you can’t install SONAR. So now who ya gonna call? Remember to send in that registration card! And just to be safe, you might want to check with Cakewalk to make sure your information is on file. Just do the following:

  1. Find your CD jewel case and look on the back to make sure your serial number is printed there.

  2. You can also find your product serial number by looking on the detachable part of your registration card or by starting SONAR and choosing Help > About SONAR.

  3. Log on to the Internet and start SONAR (if you haven’t already).

  4. Choose Help > Register Online. This will automatically open your Web browser and take you to the Cakewalk Registration Form page.

  5. Fill in the form and click on the Register button.
