Your REAL Software Website Account & Other Tips

Hi REALbasic Users,

It's been a year since we introduced the new REAL Software Website and the feedback has been very positive! Following are some tips on how to take full advantage of all the great features.

How to Register your Account:
To register your Account select the "Create New Account" button at the login page:

Enter the email address linked to your REAL Software Account to receive an email with instructions on how to create a log in. If you are unsure what email address is linked to your Account email Customer Service.

Once logged into your Account you can access all your License Keys, your Order History and any Previous Downloads available for those keys.

Did you Register but don't see all of your keys in your Account? It's possible you have created more than one account. Send an email with your keys and/or email address to Customer Service and we can merge all your accounts together. You may find you have expired keys you didn't even remember you owned! Just yesterday a long time user of REALbasic was planning on purchasing a new Windows Pro key, upon registering his Account he learned he owned an expired Windows Pro key already! He purchased a Renewal instead and saved $149!

In your Account you can also update your contact information. Keeping your email address current will keep you informed of REAL Software special offers and discounts throughout the year.

You can contact us at if you have any questions about your Account, or anything else REALbasic, and we will be happy to assist you further.
