I purchased Database Tour, but after entering serial number, I see error message 'Database Tour has already been registered on another computer'. What does it mean?

Note, that you may use your purchased product on the amount of computers, which is allowed by purchased license.

For example, if you purchased one license, you may use the program on one computer only, as it is described here.

In your case it is mean that you have already activated Database Tour with your serial number on other computer(s) and you are trying to activate it on extra computer. So, you should uninstall Database Tour on some other computer(s) and try again. In case the problem still exists, please contact the author with specifying your serial number.

I purchased Database Tour, but cannot activate it. I entered my serial number and program sad it is valid, but every time the program starts, activation window appears. What am I doing wrong?

The activation of Database Tour is done within two steps: validation of your seral number, and the activation itself.

You usually should not have problems with first step, if you have valid serial number.

The second step (activation) is used to prevent casual piracy. Note, that you may use your purchased product on the amount of computers, which is allowed by purchased license. Activation just ensures that your serial number was used in compliance with Database Tour license; in other words, it ensures, that amount of computers, where your serial number is used, is not larger than amount of copies purchased.

For example, if you purchased one license, you may use the program on one computer only, as it is described here.

Activation is usually done automatically behind the scene, after you enter your serial number and if you have Internet connection.

In your case, it seems, the serial number validation passed successfully, but activation failed due to either your serial number is used on other computer(s), or you have not Internet connection on your computer.

If you have not Internet connection on the computer where you want to use Database Tour, you should obtain the activation code using another computer, which has Internet connection, and then enter it in the program; just follow instructions, which appear after unsuccessful activation.

What are the differences between Database Tour Pro and Reportizer reporting?

Both tools, Database Tour Pro and Reportizer, use the same report engine (vlReport component). The report templates (.dtt files) of these tools usually compatible and can be edited by both tools.

But there are also important differences between these tools. While Database Tour Pro is a general database tool, where database reporting is one of the many features, Reportizer is designed for reporting purposes only. Each of them has its own advantages, but Reportizer in most cases provides more powerful and convenient way to design database reports, which achieved by including the following features:

- Opportunity to work with report collections (qroups of .dtt and .stt files from selected folder).
- Ability to disable report editing by program administrator (with password protection), which is necessary sometimes when the program is used by several people and some of them are not advanced users and have permissions only to print reports, not edit.
- Ability to edit reports not only in visual designer, but also in text mode.
