1) where can i register my company??

I'm assuming you're in the US: http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=99336,00.html
You didn't say what state you're in: http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=99021,00.html

You didn't say if you need help: http:// www.mycorporation.com
You didn't say if you need a lawyer who specializes: http://www.gameattorney.com/
You didn't say if you will need contracts: http://www.gamedevkit.com/

If you're not in the US, I can't help with links, since I haven't been researching internationally.

2) and where can i buy a license for my software???

Since you didn't give me any information, I have no clue. Are you buying a license so that your whole company office can run Windows Professional? Are you trying to buy a Harry Potter license to make an RTS game? And actually, even with info, I don't have a clue on how to license things for use in my games; you need a lawyer. If you mean license as in the legal ability to sell software, that's all included in whatever state/government you register with. Governments generally don't care what you sell (as long as it's legal), they just want you to charge sales tax (if applicable) and pay income tax (when applicable).

I'm also assuming you're 18 years of age or older, which isn't made clear by the original post, either. If you're under 18, I'm not sure you're even allowed to register a business in the US, so definitely check that.

You're in Washington. Your state government has a web site, wa.gov.

There is a whole section called Doing Business in Washington. It is the third menu item in the wa.gov site design, and the second link on the main body of the home page. It's kind of hard to miss.

It has links to planning a business to see if you have a chance of making money, starting a business (you might not need to do anything, or maybe need to file a DBA form if you don't make much money), links to licenses and permits you might need, and tons of other resources.

But I'm thinking: if you don't know how to look that up, you probably aren't cut out to starting a software business right now.
