Random Unregistering with Mac OS 9.2

The Problem:


Occasionally after I reboot my old iMac I find that my copy of Avernum 2 (Version 1.0.2) has magically become unregistered.


My Temporary Solutions:


I do step ii and reinstall it, it works again, but keeps unregistering.


Needless to say this can be a pain in the neck, especially since I can't figure out why it's doing it. I've installed it on my Windows computers several times without this problem ever occurring. I'm just curious if anyone's had this problem before with a potential solution for me. If any other information is needed from me, I should be here to respond. If this problem should be disregarded because it can indeed be fixed each time it happens, then that's also fine.


As a note: I recall this happened once before this week for Avernum 1, I may be wrong, and it isn't giving me trouble at the moment.

I tried deleting the prefs, and then I reinstalled and deleted the prefs again which unregistered me (as I assumed it would from your instructions.) Reinstalled again overriding the prefs created from said test and the application was registered.


Rebooted and it was still registered. (At this point I assumed that one reboot wasn't sufficient enough) rebooted again, and it's still registered.


Well, it might happen again, but let's hope not. Anyway, if this fixes it for a reasonable amount of reboots, I'll be much better off than otherwise.


Thanks for the assistance, we can assume this problem is fixed.
