Just remeber that you need the activation codes for BUDS to work with out that it is worth $0. you get the codes from BRP if you are dealer.

I bet that gets taken down. BRP will probably flag the ad.

Even a dealer cant get a code for an MPI-1 anymore. It is totally useless.
The VCK-2 USB system is the only one that you can get activated now. The 2009- models wont even talk to a working MPI-1, nor most Can-Am ATV's or any Spyders.

Anything like that with NO warrenty.....I would personaly stay away from..

that MPI still works on every model to this day current 2008 and you can still activate it... just did so 2 weeks ago as we have two units one being an MPI
2009 will be different story, but they still work and can still be activated an used on all models from old to current 2008
secondly.. BRP will not flag it.. that is a myth. the dealer owns it, there's nothign BRP can or will do, it's not leased or anything and BRP has no rites to it once a dealer goes under or sells their old equipment

Max is 12 months from what I understand?
I also have an MPI & MPI-2, just had to renew the access on the MPI less than a month ago as the previous privilege had expired. I was told that that was the last one that could be generated.
How do US dealers get their code? Over the phone or on BOSSWEB?
As you may know the access code is an algorithm made using the serial number of the PC & MPI.

if thats how they really generate the reg code then it can be reverse engineered but one would need a working unit with matched reg code and the pc it was matched to, the pc part is most likely the GUID windows generates for each installation, it makes sense to use that as its truely unique.
and if the code really expires after one year whats to stop you winding back the bios clock of the pc in question ( or other tricks) to fool it into continuing to work?
just a thought.....

I've worked with software activation systems
unless brp let a 15 year old design the works, setting the bios clock back won't work. While the seller claims to have neatenit, unless I could see it inperson, I'd pass. It's a highly risky proposition, specially for that price.

You use the original software and activation code. Install it on a new computer once a year or do a clean install of windows once a year. The time period will be stored in the software program on the computer.
