I've recently just tried the official download shop and am having a lot of trouble with license acquisition. I've followed the steps listed on the help page and have been in contact with their tech support to no avail. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same trouble. If so, were you able to fix the problem? I'd appreciate any info people may have. Thank you in advance.

I wish I could help. I know when I bought the Felix & Arty tracks I had a hell of a time with the license nonsense.. funny you don't need a fucking license when you buy a high quality CD, but buy a shitty quality compressed file and they treat you like a motherfucking criminal!

I'm not sure, but I think what finally worked is when I went to burn the tracks through Media Player.. just using a rewritable so I could get the files extracted afterwords and not have to deal with their bullshit licensing.. I believe it finally acquired the license at that time. Make sure you allow WMP access to the internet and you probably need a specific version of WMP above a certain number.

I'll try burning them onto a disc and see how it goes. I specifically want some tracks from the Q+PR Live Europe album, but it's turning into a nightmare. Anyway, thanks for the tip! I'll give it a try and hopefully it will work. :)

That site doesn`s help to fight against bootlegers... it`s crap... 2 hours to try to understand how it works + 2 hours to download ONE file...
