The products you own already have a simple serial number, you should find them under your account. And the Command Centre drops the individual standalone installers into a user-definable folder, so you can just locate that and keep copies of those installers.
It's online activation though (or offline C/R)... http://forum.cakewalk.com/m/tm.aspx?m=3149383&p=2

Actually read that thread... kinda sad... I mean funny... I mean sad... I mean funny...
Well, in addition to what Dan said, Cakewalk is now owned by a multi-billion dollar company and has been doing well since the acquisition, so I wouldn't be too worried.
This goes on the list for 2018 sig refresh candidates.
You need to limit that rez, bro.

Well, some parts of Cakewalk Sonar could be transformed into money, e.g. making a CROSS-PLATFORM plugin suite from sonitus fx plugins, into a new version supporting state-of-the-art features like vst2 sidechain and vst3. The code already is there, vst cross platform is not the hard to do.

Fortunately, I won't be using Z3TA+2 anymore, as my eyesight is aging faster than the plugin.
 
There's no need to re-activate if you save the relevant (Windows) registry keys. Just insert them after re-installation. :idea: :shrug:

Doesn't work.
Yes it does! I use this technique all the time. :)
I'd guess that this isn't going to help you when you want to install on a new machine, right?

In Windows 8 64 bit the reg key you need is HKey_Local_Machine/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Cakewalk Music Software

and:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Cakewalk Music Software
