A Patch is an update to the software, which updates the program. Usually it fixes bugs or adds new features. Some programs have an option to "Check for updates" on the About option.

Others require you to go to the manufacturer site, and download the patch from an Updates (or Downloads) page. They usually give you instructions on how to install it on the same page.

The general idea is to save the patch to your computer, then double-click on it. That usually starts the install.

If you need more specific instructions, post a follow up here with the software name and we can give you more help.

Here's a tip - when you post questions here, try to be a bit more specific about your issue - what software, what problems. You'll get a faster answer that way.

Good Luck

"idm has been registered with


The problem seems to be with the serial key you provided for IDM. IDM blocks every pirated serial key and it is the reason you are getting the above message.

The solution this problem has been given by techforum4u.com


The solution for this problem is not easily available and the only step the user left with is uninstalling the software completely. Even after several installation and uninstallation the problem exists unless you format your computer.If you want a permanent and exact solution for this problem follow these steps:-

1. Exit IDM from the taskbar before entering the serial.
2. Disconnect active connections to the internet.
3. Then go to the directory C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc and locate the file 'hosts'
4. Open the "hosts" file with "notepad".
5. on the last line enter the following address as shown and save.

127.0.0.1 www.internetdownloadmanager.com

6. Now, again enter the "fake serial" and wait for few seconds.
7. your IDM is registered again.
8. No wonder you would be facing this problem again but without panic use a "new fake key" ( this time steps 3,4 and 5 are not required, the only thing required is "a keygen" for generating a new key. For IDM 5.14 Dr.Carbon Keygen is used ).

Go here on the Value Soft web site:
http://www.valusoftsupport.com/KBArticle.asp?kbid=6196

They have a patch to fix it, thankfully. I just spent about a half an hour with my brain exploding because I was having the same problem you're having! You have to download the patch, unzip it into the 'program' folder of the MasterCook folder, then launch MasterCook. If you don't get the patch unzipped into the right place, it doesn't work. Thankfully, if you put it in the wrong spot (as I did) you can just drag and drop it into the 'program' folder.

I am attempting to find a patch so that I can run my Webster's New World Dictionary & Thesaurus on Windows Vista. This ran great on XP, and I was told there may be a patch for Vista.


by the looks of it there is a 6.3 release of the software that is vista compatable.

You can also call their techs at 1-800-696-0514 to find out if this is a update you can aquire.

below is a link to the newer version on amazon.

Magellan should be able to provide you a patch that will reset the security password. You would need to open a support case with them through their website, or call their customer support center:
