    I had a trial version installed, but I wanted the full version. I followed the instructions on "hack to activate" on this site, but I got stuck at this bit

    Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.

    When I go to save it, it won't work. I have Vista, but not sure how to "take owership ang grant full access permission" in order to save it.

    Would be grateful if someone could help:)

    This is déjà vu all over again . . . .

    To take ownership do the following:

    Right-click on any file you want to own, then click on <PROPERTIES> then click on <SECURITY> tab, then, if present, click <OK> on any Security message, then click <ADVANCED>, then click the <OWNER> tab, then click <ADMINISTRATOR> or the <ADMINISTRATOR GROUP> in the <NAME> list, and finally click <OK>. You now own it.

    One other thing, sometimes you will experience a situation where you cannot save (or do anything else to) a file. Right click the file, then at the bottom of the <GENERAL> tab opposite <ATTRIBUTES>, uncheck <READ ONLY> if it is checked. Now you can adulterate the file to your heart's content.

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    And if you don't what to have to try to remember all these correct steps, you can download the patch two posts up and then have an option in your right-click menu which works in one step. :)
