I had the same experience when opening 1G09 for the first time a few days ago.  Like you, I had saved a copy of my registration key and all I had to do was copy it to the clipboard, launch Doggiebox 1G09 again, and voila!  Doggiebox detected and installed the reg key and I was good to go.

Hope this helps,

When I run DB, it gives me the option to buy or quit; quitting does just that, and buy quits and launches the doggiebox.com purchasing web page.  What I can't figure out how to do is re-enter my license key in the 1G09 build.  Perhaps I need to re-download the last standard released version (from last year), enter the license key in that, and then try to run the 1G09 build?  That seems unnecessarily complicated, though ....

>> Awesomeness -- I'm downloading now! :)  Heaven knows when I'll get a chance to give it a go, as I am now the dad of a 7-month old girl, and this seems to take up a lot of time. ;)  But I do have some DB work that needs doing, if I can find a moment, and so I may as well try to give the new version a spin.  I guess I'll have to see whether I use this version or Ben manages to release another first!
