AllMyNotes Organizer - Frequently Asked Questions

Sales and Registration.


Q: What's the upgrade price/procedure to version 4?

A: Deluxe license upgrade costs 50% off the regular price, and totally free in following cases:

1. If the license was purchased within 12 months prior to the version 4 release date (19 Mar 2020).

2. For all volunteers - localizers, testers, partners, etc. The upgrade for all these categories have to be handled manually via e-mail support, just drop us few words, ask for the license renewal.


Q: I've purchased the Deluxe license. How fast will the activation code be delivered to me?

A: Immediately upon purchase, you will receive an email with your activation key inside. This process is fully automated, expect no delays. If after 10 minutes you still have not received your activation key, then either one of two things has occurred:

1. Your activation email was caught by your spam filters on your email server or email client. Please take a look in to the Spam folder. Make sure to add our email address support at to your address book to avoid this scenario.

2. You mistyped your email address when you where placing your purchase. This is not a problem, simply contact us and ask where your license is.

Normally we reply on purchase inquiries immediately if it's our working hours. And up to 24-48 hours at weekends (this is the worst scenario, normally we reply immediately during weekends and holidays too). If you don't hear from us for longer than that, please try to contact us from different email address - sometimes evil email providers simply have problems with delivery of certain content. In our experience we've seen the case when a paranoid anti-spam filter was treating the word 'license' in email body as suspicious, and deleted such emails without a trace, to avoid this scenario simply try different email service provider.


Q: I've lost my license code, how do I restore it?

A: We restore purchased licenses at no cost. Please use our License Restore service for your convenience.

Q: What to do if I've changed my e-mail address?

A: No clouds :) All your data is stored in to a single .ddb database file. You can actually have multiple .ddb files for various purposes. By default, your .ddb file is located either in My Documents folder (for non-Portable version), or in the same folder where AllMyNotes Organizer is installed (this is the case for Portable version). Alternatively you can save your data to any other convenient for you place using 'File'-'Save As...' menu item.

Q: What programming language is AllMyNotes written in? Also, how is the user interface made? Is it customly, or, native Windows components?

A: The application is written using Visual C++, we are using exclusively only our own MFC-based code for everything - skins (all UI controls done by ourselves, we really love to work on UI), database engine (an excellent, highly-performant, encrypted solid file storage), and huge amount of other useful routines, all done by us. This way we have no problems with dependency on third-party libraries, and once need to add new feature or update existing one, we have no limits - we are the masters of the code, we exactly know how it's done.
