everytime I open qt pro i have to enter the registration code. This is really annoying. Does anyone know how to rectify this problem?

    Not really as I'm not sure what you mean by qt. Is that Quick Time Pro?


    If so then there is something wrong with the install, something wrong with your OS or with the hardware in your Mac.

    This procedure will check for files in your home folder that are locked or have a wrong owner. It makes no changes and will not, in itself, solve your problem.


    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:


    Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the page that opens.


    Drag or copy — do not type — the following line into the Terminal window, then press return:


    find . -flags +uchg,uappnd -o ! -user $UID


    The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
