    Nice dude. If I can make one suggestion though I would try to add online count for MAK keys for all products that this supports. Kinda do a VAMT Validation. IK no other PID checker but that would be badass.

    v1.0.2.1 works much better than v1.0.2.0, the text looks better than before, i like this key checker cos you can check a load of keys from a txt file, and its a bit faster than some of the others around, well done nice work.

    Good Work,Why don't you add the support for XP too,as there is already a command line Keychecker for XP...

    Windows XP and Windows 2003 behave keys much different, for example:
    1) Keys are "calculated" against pidgen.dll, and every version has a unique pidgen.dll file (imagine the filesize if all those pidgen.dll files should be included)
    2) There are no logical channels (XP MediaCenter keys and Tablet keys are accepted by Windows XP professional as well)
    3) Windows XP soon will be history :)

    A few reasons why it isn't moved:
    1) This is based on open source code, which apparently now has become a closed source project
    2) This is the 20th or more keychecker available (do we need topics for them all?)
    3) Nothing new, all has been done before.

    I've chosen this font (Lucida Console) because every letter has the same length so the output is more clear. I will look after nicer font with the same qualities.


    yeah, that's true - XP is a hard thing (and old too).

    But still more people are using XP than 7,due to its performance.

    @janek2012

    What exactly did you do to make it faster? i see (and can hear) it makes use of all my 4 cores simultaneously.
    Does checking complete list makes the pidchecker consume all available resources? (and render the system useless to do other things in the meantime?)

    janek, i like this pid check tool great work, but i got a couple of modification requests

    is there any chance you can change the way it reads the keys from the .txt file
    i noticed if theres a space or any characters after one of the keys it will stop at that key
    is it possible to adjust it so it ignores any text, spaces or characters after the keys

    also could you make it so the main window can be resized, especially the bottom vertical

    and another one which would add a nice feature, is it possible to make it display your current systems key on the tool somewhere

    thanks !!
