Bug that will be absolute lowest on your list...

or the easiest lol.

If you put in a registration key without putting in the name it just exit crashes when you register.

Putting in the name and it works.

Was just being lazy and wondering if the key would work without the name.

It does not actually "exit crashes". It just checks your key and closes the program.

One of the easiest ways to crack an application is to search for "Key is not valid." or "Username cannot be empty." string messages in the source code with a decent disaasembler.

One of the most common ways to prevent it is simply do not provide feedback if the key is valid or not but simply exit the application and leave it to the next restart to decide was the registration successful. This leaves the brutal force crackers with the no easy automated attacks.
