Cinema 4d XL serial numbers problem

Hey all,
I haven't used my Cinema 4d xl 10 in a while ... in the meantime I have got a new computer and Cinema 4d was installed on my old pc so I go to install C4d on my new PC.
I get the install disk and install it , everything goes fine . I open C4d put in my serial numbers and personal info and C4d opens fine. I close down C4d thinking everything is okay, a couple of hours later I go to open C4d and it asks me for my serial numbers again. Why.
I was thinking I wasn't connected to the internet the first time so I enter my serial numbers again and C4d opens fine. I close out C4d and try to open C4d again. C4d still asks for my serial numbers .....
What is up with this. I am on a win7 pc.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

R10 was never tested or certified for Win 7.
You should not install it in the default path, but outside of the default program directory.
For example C:\Maxon would be ok.
If you have admin rights during registration the serial number should stay put.

just as guess into the blue, but might it be the case that you have installed c4d in one
of these folders where windows tends to be super restrictive when it comes to write
access , like /Program Files and so on ? you have to keep in mind, that c4d xl 10 has
been released before Vista/Windows 7.

things you could try :

run c4d as admin.
install c4d in an unrestricted folder.

in the worst case XL10 expects a specific windows XP folder/registry structure, which isn't
supported any longer by newer windows versions.

edit : ay, srek has been faster
