Lucam Recorder

Hi Everyone. I'm trying to get hold of a license file for Lucam Recorder v.2.7. I've followed the website instructions and sent an email to Heiko Wilkens with a request but have heard nothing back. Anyone know if he's still in business? There are a couple of other companies, 1 German and 1 Italian but I speak neither very well and cant find a translate icon on their sites. Any ideas?
