Editorial review


Sean O'Reilly Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.1
Managing to recover or reinstall your Windows is usually the easy part of setting up your system. The hard part comes when you need to reinstall all the software that you used to have.
Finding all the required passwords and serial numbers can be a tedious task. LicenseCrawler is an efficient way of solving this problem.

LicenseCrawler is an efficient tool that will find your license keys by scanning your registry files. One of the things that I appreciated when using this application was the fact that it allows users to create a blacklist and a whitelist, thus enabling them to save time by filtering their search. Moreover, it will keep your license data secure by letting you save the results as an encrypted file.

Another feature that surprised me in a pleasant manner was the encode or decode window. This will allow you to encode and decode texts, calculate MD5 and SHA2 checksums or verify adobe keys.

In conclusion, LicenseCrawler is a program that I recommend as it will surely come in handy and honestly I haven't seen too many others like this one. Furthermore, if you can get past the nag screen and patiently await for it to close, you can use this program for free, all the more reason for trying it out.
