    Yep, very good explanation by @Bree

    The main reason this additional functionalty is there is that all keys purchased from "shady" sources should be checked - if it has no activations left it is illegit.

    Note: sometimes companies do provide employees with unused MAK's so there is a minute chance that they are not completely illegit.

    Good point, I didn't even consider that. I used to work at place that made computers for OEMs (that would go into medical or other systems). They would be imaged with one OS but would have the other OS in the kit and the Key label attached to the machine which was never used..

    Update Preview Version 1.1.14.4300


    I had a request to add multi-language support.

    Multilanguage interface . Issue #27 . Superfly-Inc/ShowKeyPlus . GitHub

    The latest Preview adds Italian only - will expand to other languages pending testing of this one.

    https://github.com/Superfly-Inc/Show...view_it-IT.zip

    Any Italians here can you please check the translation file included in the zip.


    Italian translation done at GitHub - Build version 1.1.14.4400 released

    https://github.com/Superfly-Inc/Show...eDependant.zip

    NB: This is a .Net Core 3.1 version which requires that runtime installed.

    Thanx bud... Do you mind doing some translation?
    @everyone, if you would like your languange included please see below as well.
    This is the it-IT language file - please replace the Italian with your language and save it with the appropiate abbreviation.

    Hey Craig, I found a great use for the new Upgrade tab.

    I was wanting to restore a Macrium image to before I joined the Release Preview ring, but wasn't sure of the date for an image to choose from.
    Well your new tab save me the headache

    Nice one Cliffo!

    I can't take credit tho'... it's due to a really cool registry addition by MS - one of those hidden gems they occasionally add that has more uses than it was originally designed for

    Rock on...

    Hi, Ive just run ShowkeyPlus on my Desktop PC. Im running Windows 10 Home version1909 and on my PC under Version ShowkeyPlus has 18362.900 (64-bit OS).
    However, On my PC under System it shows that I have OS Build 18363.900. Why does Showkeyplus show18362.900?

    I wouldn't worry about it too much the Build number is the same for Version 1903 and Version 1909 except for 18362 versus 18363 part. It really wasn't that big of an Upgrade. Folks are starting to get Version 2004 Upgrade now, did 2 yesterday for testing the printer issue and have a couple to do today for clients then half dozen when I get to them.
