    How to activate "Free" Software that comes with Intel Boards?


      Hi All:


      I don't know if this is the best place to post this, so let me know if there's a better place.


      Anyone know how to activate the Acronis back-up software that comes with many Intel boards?


      On the driver disk that came with my new DP43TF board, there are some programs like Acronis back-up and Diskkeeper.  I was particularly interested in trying Acronis to produce a disk image.  But the prog keeps asking for a serial number when I try to activate it through the site.


      I know with other Intel m-boards in the past, Intel included a paper in the m-board box with serial numbers or directions on how to activate the various freebie software packages (like Norton and diskkeeper).  Nothing came with my board (a DP43TF) this time.


      I looked on the Intel site and googled it.  But can't find anything about the serial numbers.  Anyone know where to get the activation numbers?  I mean the REAL legal activation numbers.  I'm not asking how to hack the program or get serial number cracks.


      It seems strange that Intel would include these software packages without any way to even try them.


      Thanks for any help you can give.
