Dear Alberto,

When I try to register to get the source code, I get the message
     INVALID INPUT! Check your FUID and/or email address!
I used the exact same FUID and email address that I did a few minutes
earlier to get the latest respin of the code. What is wrong?

The source code I have is way too old and could not be used on my 64-bit
machines anyway. I would like to get the latest version.

Thank you,
Joe Comfort
