Created my account, pasted in my MacHeist receipt Serial number in the Activation code box, now says "The Activation Code entered is invalid. Please be sure you have entered the Activation Code correctly.
Sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish between the letter "O" and the number "0" as well as the letter "I" and the number "1"."

Glad I got other good apps from the nanoBundle 2, 'cause this one is crap.

No, you do not need my street address. No, I do not need your Equinux account.

On top of that, it started associating incorrect album covers with the songs in my library.

No, I do not need to use your app. Pfaugh!

… and deleted.

I don't want an equinux account or ID. I really just want a place to put in the simple serial number I got without anything else needed. I'm not giving any of my personal information to this company and I certainly don't want them to have my email address so I can get spam from them.

I deleted both CoverScout and SongGenie from my computer after being unable to register the application without having to give my personal details.

Another application from this bundle that I won't be using - I'm not putting all my info in just to activate a serial number I've already bought - ridiculous.

Doubt if I'll be buying a Macheist bundle again - so far 2 useful apps

The Product key I obtained with the nanobundle2 seems to be invalid. I've entered it with dashes, without dashes, to no avail. Anybody have any hints?

SongGenie has appeared in my applications folder out of nowhere! Does CoverScout automatically install SongGenie too? If so, is it a registered version? Thanks

I downloaded CoverScout, installed it - and it turned out to be SongGenie, another software of that company. Therefore my serial is worthless... I deleted SongGenie and downloaded CoverScout a second time, same result.
Any suggestions?

Why the hell are you requiring my physical address for shareware?
That's ridiculous. I shouldn't have to give that out.

I can see it for things like Adobe CS (because they have physical discs, paid support, etc.) but for this? Overkill.

Name, email address, user ID, password.

Anyone know if it's possible to get it to fill in the cover art for all music in iTunes library (not just stuff held locally)? I keep 99% of my music on a NAS and have imported to iTunes without copying to my Mac. Coverscout only picks up the single album I hold on my Mac rather than on the NAS.

THIS IS BS. I paid for this crap nanobundle, yet when I try to use CoverScout, all I am able to download are album covers with DEMO scrawled across them. BS.

You have to register CoverScout smart one... then the DEMO will go away....

I simply uninstalled CoverScout and SongGenie... who knows if I got everything; it's poorly-behaved software. The main reason I uninstalled it is because I got the activition code from the nanoBundle receipt, but I can't use it without giving some company my info?

I have a problem with being held hostage for my personal information. I have no problem giving it to a company I'm interested in or trust, but this process soured me right away.

And as a new Mac user, I'm not even sure if I got everything when I dragged the applications to the trash, because it installed three packages. It's just this kind of stuff I had hoped to avoid when moving from Windows. What's next? A registry which I'll have to hack to remove poorly-behaved software?

Very disappointing, could not register because my email address is supposedly "invalid" when it is perfectly legal. I have removed CoverScout and rather doubt that I will be buying any future MacHeist bundles.

I was really only interested in CoverScout and Flow; I cannot license CoverScout and Flow can't perform SFTP connections using SSH keys to authenticate. Flow looks prettier than CyberDuck but doesn't have half the functionality (no SSH key authentication, no directory synchronization, etc).

Not sure what all the complaints about having to provide an email address to register your software are about. If you lose your serial# or your hard drive crashes and you need to reinstall how do you expect Equinux to be able to tell if you ever payed for CoverScout?  Or do you expect them to just give out serial#s to everyone who contacts them saying "I bought CoverScout 3 years ago and my hard drive crashed so I don't have my serial# could you just give me a new one?" That's ridiculous.  It's not unreasonable at all for a company to ask for an email address when you are registering a product so they have some proof of purchase/identity. 

As for having to enter the other personal data? I am amazed that in 2010 any internet savvy person feels that just because an online form says 'name' and 'street address' that you are somehow obligated to enter your real life accurate data. You can enter your info as  O.I.HateYourApp, 123 IhateCoverScout Lane, Goaway, ME. It's not like they are going to come to your house to see if it's a real address.

Hi,

Just download my copy from the Macheist Bundle, and do I have to open a Equinux account with all my personal info again?

Oh, please could I activate my copy with the licence sent by Macheis, just the way it is done with the other applications?

The activation process for applications is controlled by the application developer since they are the ones who wrote the application, MacHeist has no control over how activations are done.

Bought Cover Scout and have email receipt and serial number.  It is not letting me register.  Please advise - entering my email in the ID/PW retrieval returns as message saying they have no record of me.  Everything is documented.  ramzyn at yahoo dot com.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Coverscout - please allow us who bought your program to activate it without equinux - none of the other programs required this complex a process.  I was about to activate mine but will wait.  When the patch comes I'd love to activate it as a paying customer - as an FYI, it should always be easy for a paying customer to sign up - I'm a student transitioning to the real world and it baffles me sometimes that the real world is more difficult to navigate, even though I'm paying for it.  Cheers

You should contact the developer directly with your problem.

Hey,
I use XBMC as my media app. I would like to know if it is possible to get Cover Scout to save the album covers as files in the folder the album is in.

When the album covers are simply stored as some type of metadata, it doesn't show up in all apps.
