I paid the money, got the email, got my unlock code, and got the link to where I can download my .csb key, which I did.

So now what? Upon opening Chromonator the first time, it naturally asks me for the .csb key, and offers a box in which to put it. Now the .csbkey that I downloaded is apparently a text file, when opened presents a sheer alphabet soup of codes and cookie looking things.

Which one of those codes goes into the key box? I tried the whole thing, but it said "NO". I tried numerous presumable logical groupings of numbers, but "NO".
So in that txt file, what is the code and goes in the "please enter your .csb key here" box? And what is the junk?

you just put the key on your desktop or something, and then, when chromy tells you to put it in, browse to find where you put it and click on it. You do not need to put in any codes manually. Thats why there is a key FILE... biggrin

Sometimes IE adds .txt to the end of the file name - delete this and Chromanator will see it just fine.

Yea, you find where the actual file is, but you don't open it. You just point to where it is on your computer and Chromanator will "decode" it for you.
