Chapter 3 Authorization
Until it's authorized, T-RackS will work in demo mode. To authorize T-RackS you need three codes: Serial Number The serial number is printed on the registration card included in the package. Digital ID The Digital ID is a code generated by T-RackS and it is displayed in the authorization window every time you start a not authorized version of TRackS. It is unique to each computer system. Authorization Code This is the final code that you can immediately obtain online with your Serial Number and Digital ID. Follow this procedure to authorize your T-RackS: 1) Write down carefully (or copy) your Digital ID. This must be the Digital ID of the system where you are planning to install and use T-RackS. Note that Digital ID and Authorization Code have no letters I and O. Those you might see are actually numbers: one and zero, respectively. 2) Launch your browser and connect to the T-RackS registration page: http://www.t-racks.com/TRReg.html Your browser needs to support frames and Javascript; all recent versions of Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer will suffice. You will access the TRackS registration form. 3) Fill in all required fields, including your Serial Number and Digital ID. All codes should be entered in capital letters. Remember to include a working e-mail address: it will be used to send your Authorization Code. Press Submit. 4) Open your e-mail client software and check for new mail in the address you've just inserted in the registration form. You will shortly receive a message confirming your registration and giving you an Authorization Code. Important: in this same message you will also find a login id that will grant access to your personal area on our web site. Use this login whenever you need additional authorizations as well as to obtain downloads or contact technical support.

5) If you had closed your applications, launch T-RackS again. Otherwise, just return to the authorization window. 6) Type carefully your Serial Number in the Serial Number field in the authorization window. 7) Type carefully your Authorization Code in the Authorization Code field in the authorization window. 8) Press OK. If all information has been entered correctly, T-RackS will now be authorized. Remember to write down your Authorization Code. If you use a different computer for music and for the internet, just note down the Digital ID, move on to your internet computer and use it to visit the registration page, fill in the registration form (with the Digital ID copied from the other system), and get the e-mail confirming your registration. Then note down the Authorization Code, return to your music computer and complete the procedure. If you have no access to the internet in the T-RackS CD you will find a PDF file called Authorization Code Request Form. Open the file (with Acrobat Reader), print the form, fill in the required fields and fax everything to +39-59-2861671 to receive your Authorization Code within 24 hours of your fax (standard European business hours). Please write clearly: if we can't decipher the codes, we won't be able to generate a working Authorization Code. If you have no access to a fax machine fill in the aforementioned Authorization Code Request Form and mail it to this address: IK Multimedia Production srl Via dell'Industria 46 41100 Modena ITALY You'll be given your Authorization Code by return mail within 15 working days.
