Tversity Pro upgrade & finding your license key

Help! I can’t find my license key for Tversity Pro. I know I got one when they were still handing out the software for free, but now that they are charging $29.99 for it, I can’t seem to find my license.

Sound like you? Well that was me Tuesday night after trying to copy a movie to my PS3, (Did I mention that it was a legally obtained movie?) and then deciding it was time to upgrade, I downloaded the latest version (1.8 pro). Needless to say I got stuck on the installation window that asked for my email address and password. I only had one of the two pieces of information readily available. The serial key on the other hand that had been emailed to meΒ  roughly a year ago was gone. Why would I have deleted that???

Tversity Pro

For those of you who are not familiar with Tversity, this will be of little use to you. You will have to shell out the $40 in order to experience the full effect. Of course you can still get the free version, but it wont have the premium streaming services (Hulu and Youtube etc.) available. In a nutshell, Tversity allows you to stream media (Movies,Music, and Pictures) from your PC or Laptop to your PS3/Xbox 360 etc. You can visit their site and download it.

Anyway, after scouring Google, and reading over countless forums, I remembered the good old methods to use, and started going through the files in the install directory. After about five minutes of searching and sifting, I finally found my serial key, and I’ll tell you how to do the same.

First, locate the directory that you have installed Tversity pro. In my case (version 1.6 pro) it was in C:/Program Files/Tversity/Media Server. In later versions it was in a hidden location: C:\ProgramData\TVersity\Media Server. Then open a file called profiles.xml. At this point you will want to scroll down to line 90 – 110, and look for an entry as follows:

<profile id=”xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx”>

In place of x’s, you will have your serial key. Copy it and there you go.

I hope this helps at least one person. If it does, feel free to drop me a line.

    Very helpful indeed. By doing this I was able to get the newest version of pro for free. First get an older version of TVersity Pro off a bittorrent site ([Link Removed]). Download and install. Now older version won’t work very well, and as you click around in TVersity’s guide it will tell you that a new version is available. So go download the newer version of pro (click the link on TVersity’s website about upgrading for those with licenses). During the installation of the new version of PRO you will be asked for your license key and e-mail. Use the above instructions to find your license key and then enter any e-mail address of your choosing. Installation completes, and BAM you have the newest version of TVersity PRO for free. Thanks Algai d’ Aman

      I had to remove the link though (copyright issues ‘n all). I think people will be able to find torrent. Also, even though it is a good idea, I cannot condone the circumvention of the copyright holders software license . . I think that should cover all bases πŸ˜‰

    After you located the file you will see several profile ID lines the second row of each line delares the install type used
    so for windows PC users best 1st try is the
    profile id
    <friendlyname> MediaCenter <friendlyname>

    other types of install's ps3, xbox instal find your install type labeled after the
    <friendlyname> **YOUR DEVICE** <friendlyname>

    If you disable your network connection prior to starting the installation, you can use a 'dummy' serial key and it works 100% fine, just tested on 2.4 PRO!

    I used "0000-0000-0000-0000" and a random email! Installed perfect πŸ˜‰

    Alot easier than torrenting a old version and extracting a key!! πŸ™‚

  13. matias 16 March 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    thank you man! the key 0000-0000-0000-0000 works perfectly!.

  14. newbie 10 July 2013 at 5:45 am #

    hey, everytime i try to do this in the installation it says the email and key aren't valid together, what email did you use?

  15. Remie Vliex 14 September 2013 at 3:42 pm #
