What I have often found with emailed registrations is that formatting codes get embedded in your copy/paste data. Make sure you're pasting JUST THE TEXT part of the registration key, and not the formatting used within the email.

Often Ctrl-Shift-V works, but sometimes I've had to paste the code into a text-based app (NOTEPAD works on Windows), then copy it again to paste into the program. This isn't limited to MakeMKV. It would be nice if programs ignored the non-alphabetic data in strings...

Thanks for the reply Woodstock,I even tried entering the whole string manually,checked it 3 times to make sure I copied it correctly.Keep getting the Invalid error?I am at a loss.
