de-serializing / stuck with beta serial #

Post by Foolish Foobar » Sun May 27, 2007 2:57 am

Hello;

I "found" little snitch in beta form some time ago and
played with it a bit, not having much use for it.

Now, i'm using a laptop more and public wifi and such;
i also just upgraded to Tiger.

the beta that i found had a serial #; i upgraded to 1.2.4
and got a legit serial number via the mechanism here.

Here's the thing: Little Snitch goes into "every 3 hours"
mode, but *still thinks* the beta serial # is "legit".

Is there some way i can (ideally):
- save my rule base
- delete prefs
- "virginize" Little Snitch and
enter my legit #?

Thanks,

Foolish Foob

uninstall and reinstall doesn't solve the problem. I have the same issue. Any other bright ideas on the subject?

I have the exact same problem but not as picky as you. I would be happy to redo my settings. Just want to get rid of that nonsense beta message.

I simply deleted the file /Library/Application Support/Objective Development/Little Snitch/registration.
That's a plist file containing the registration info. Afterwards Little Snitch asked for the registration.

Doesn't fix this specific problem. I can enter my serial number just fine. The problem is that after I've done that and Little Snitch indicates that the program is registered but it still continues to shut off every 3 hours and a message states that LS is still in demo mode and will shut off every 3 hours. It's very annoying because Little Snitch indicates that it is registered
