Recover program licence keys, passwords, more

RecALL is a free program which tries to recover application license keys, passwords and more.

We ran it on our test PC and it found the licence keys for Windows 8.1, Axialis IconWorkshop, TuneUp Utilities, VMware Workstation and assorted CyberLink applications (but not our Office 2013).

This information was presented in a confusing way. Many applications were listed multiple times, for example. Sometimes each entry had a different value, and you're left to figure out yourself which one (if any) might be correct correct.

RecALL seems designed to display password details, but it found very few on our test PC. It only gave the user name and password for one of our Outlook 2013 accounts, and located very little for websites.

Fortunately there is one useful option in a "Server Emulation" mode. Set this up, change your email or FTP client to access 127.0.0.1 instead of its usual server, then connect as usual. RecALL intercepts and displays the user name and password, very handy if you've forgotten them.

Changelog

Verdict:

RecALL isn't a particularly useful password or licence key finder. It did quickly detect our Windows 8.1 key, though, and the ability to intercept email and FTP traffic means it could find some logons that other programs miss.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
