If you bought them legitimately, then did you send your registration card to the manufacturers? If so, they will be able to verify that you are the owner of a legitimate copy, and will be able to help you.

If you did not, then you can contact the place from which you bought them and ask them if they are willing to provide you with proof of purchase for your copy (you may in fact have proof yourself by way of credit card receipts or bank statements). You can then fax or post this to the owners of the copyright on the programs and once again, they should be able to help you.

If you have no proof of purchase and no way of providing such proof, then there's nothing more you can do than fax or write to the individual manufacturers of the programs, photocopying the original certification for the programs that comes with the documentation, explaining to them how you lost the registration codes and appealing to them to assist you. I am sure if you acquired them legitimately, there is sufficient evidence around to show your good faith. There are no other legitimate ways of pursuing this any further. Any other methods of acquiring the codes are illegal and cannot be passed on here.

Rifty.

I'm sure if I had all the registration numbers (most of which I do
still have), I could reinstall all the apps. I'm wondering if I
*have* to do this, or if there is some cool shortcut. It would
also be helpful to know how to do this (reforamtt and reinstall
the whole drive) without risking loss of all the registraion info
next time. That might not be exactly what my question said, but that
is really what I want to know.
