viewtopic.php?t=125934#p619938. Hopefully it works with x86 as well.
Instead of writing novels, post /export hide-sensitive. Use find&replace in your favourite text editor to systematically replace all occurrences of each public IP address potentially identifying you by a distinctive pattern such as my.public.ip.1.

It doesn't. Old x86 licenses were permanently tied to hardware (disk drive) as copy protection. CHR uses online activation, which needs to be renewed in order to get updates.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.
