Basically, this project is very simple to Explain. I have a small cabinet design and manufacturing company in El Paso, Texas. I recently split partnerships and now am operating on my own. I had previously purchased a kitchen design software program called 20/20 for my designs, shop drawings and customer estimates and presentations. This program requires a key device on the back of my computer. My ex-partner took the device out of spite and has no use for it, he knows nothing of computers and I have the software. I have offered to purchase it from him but he says he know nothing of it's whereabouts. 20/20 will give me no support and would like to sell me another program. I would like to find somebody to open my program and remove whatever section of the program that requires the key device. I have version 6.0 of this program. I found somebody that said he had a copy of the new version 6.1 and gave me a copy of it with a 30 day timer on it and told me if I was happy with it, to contact him and he would remove the timer and sell me the 6.1 version. I used it, liked it and wanted to purchase it, but I have 2 months of not being able to locate him and he doesn't answer his mail. If you can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated. This is not a request for illegal software or anything, this is a request to help me fix something that I already purchased. Thanks again.
Basically I would like one of the two programs that I have to be functioning completely in order that I may continue working.
I have windows XP and windows M2000
