Yet another venting about immediate trial version license expiration

I know this might not be the place to do it, and that my fellow users here can't help or offer any comfort, but there's no other place to do it. Apologies to those who don't want to hear it. And I don't give a crap whether you had no problems. That doesn't help me at all.<br /><br />I'm gonna go underground to find my fix. Should I take a gun, or some aerosol spray to assuage the suspicions of the black hats?<br /><br />Tried installing the AI CS3 trial yesterday.<br /><br />No problems were encountered during the 35 minute download of the 1.235 GB disk image.<br /><br />I went above & beyond the call of duty in running maintenance routines before the install. System passes with flying colors. I even ran the CS3 cleaning script, just to be sure.<br /><br />I've never tried this demo before. I've never run any betas.<br /><br />The installation proceeded without problems, and returned a "Successfully Installed" message when the procedure was complete.<br /><br />Upon first attempt at launching the demo, I get an alert telling me "the licensing for this trial has expired. I didn't mess with my system clock or do anything else; I dedicated all resources and efforts solely to properly following all instructions about installing and running the trial.<br /><br />Hit up the Adobe knowledge base, and followed all procedures for removing, repairing and reinstalling, to the letter. I even searched out the issue online, to gather as much info about this problem as I could find.<br /><br />No Joy.<br /><br />Called Adobe Customer Support, and after enjoying the music loop for way too long, I'm told that once that "trial has expired" wall has been hit, there's nothing that can fix it, short of a reformat, or installing on a different hard drive. Of course, that's common knowledge. I wasn't able to draw any info from the 2nd-tier tech support guy about what might have caused the problem. Basically, he just told me I'm SOL & FKT.<br /><br />But I'll bet the bad boys know how.<br /><br />It's such a massive load of bu||$h¡t that a reasonably savvy guy like myself can't manage to get through this process and try out the demo.<br /><br />Fetch me my trenchcoat and rakish fedora...I'm going in.<br /><br /><Jerry>"...But I don't wanna be a pirate!!!"</Jerry>

Hi, I would highly recommend the Presonus Firebox. I use a Yamaha 01x for my main system but wanted something for my PowerBook out of the studio. I tried many interfaces and decided on the FireBox for a couple of reasons. First it sounds great. It has nice sounding inputs and lots of headroom. It is Class Compliant with OS X which means there are no drivers to load and supported at the OS level. That's a great thing, it just shows up in the Audio MIDI Setup and works rock solid. Plus it's a quaility build and nice and compact. It's at the top of the price range for that class of interface but well worth the extra money. I really wanted something that just worked and sounded great.
Hope that helps,
Mike

  • Unable to renew the SAP NetWeaver ABAP 7.02 Trial Version license

    Greetings,
    My license for SAP NetWeaver  ABAP  7.02 Trial Version has expired and I was trying to renew the license the other day. I was able to install the new license but, unfortunately, I were not able to delete the old licence not activate the new one.
    I logged on with user: SAP* to install the new license and it was installed successfully. When I do try to delete the old one the system gives this error message: " Only the administrator is allowed to delete licenses. When the valid system license has expired, only the user SAP* can log on to the system. in this case, it would be dangerous to delete a license.
    This is why the user SAP* is never allowed to delete a license."
    Anybody can assist me with the license renewal please ?!
    TIA

    My problem is solved ,, thanx whoever looked at it :).
    the solution was that I downloaded and NSP license key but for an other version of the product.
    Thanx.

  • Can't access my program. Get notice trial version has expired

    I purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 for school. I recently installed it on my computer on 1/8/14 and registered it 1/13/14. I went to get it in yesterday and I received a notice that my trial version has expired and am unable to get in to photoshop completely. I have the product serial number or license and it is in my profile. I don't recall doing it but I might have downloaded a trial verious last year. If that is the case, I figure that might be causing me all the issues. My question is how do I remove that trial version and begin using my licensed version? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! I have assignments due and it's hard to get them done when I can't even access my program.

    Glad you got it working. But I'm concerned by the 'couldn't get anywhere' statement when you tried to sign in with your Adobe ID. Take a look under your Help menu in the Editor and make sure you have a 'Sign Out' entry followed by your Adobe ID email address. If not then at some point soon you will get a warning that the software needs to be signed in to keep using it. If not a Sign Out, then there should be a Sign In - that you should choose and try again.

    If you are purchasing from the Mac App store, then you would drag the trial version to the trash first and empty trash (since the trial version has expired).
    Launch the Mac App store > sign in with your Apple ID > purchase Aperture (this is cheaper than the previous retail version many of us purchased anyway).
    Note - you can rename your Aperture Trial library as needed if you want to work with that one once the full version is installed.

  • SAP NetWeaver 2004s Trial Version License Renewal

    Hi,
    How many times can I extend my license for SAP NetWeaver 2004s Trial Version?
    Also, is there any fee for every license extension?
    Thanks in advance,
    Haris

    Dear Haris,
    Currently there's no limit and no fee for license renewals. In the past, license renewal had been stopped for some time though, which made a lot of people in this board very unhappy, but hopefully this won't happen again...
    Best wishes,

  • NetWeaver 7.01 ABAP Trial Version License

    Hello
    I'm new to SAP and I installed a few time ago the trial version. Now the version has expired and I got a new license file NSP.txt from SAP. When I go to SAPLICENSE, I can install the license file. I t shows me under Installierte Lizenzen the new file, valid until 30.07.2010. But under the actual settings there is License Expiration Date empty and if I exit the system, the settings are away. I cannot save the license file.
    Thanks for any help.

  • SAP NW 2004s ABAP Trial Version - Licensing Issue

    Hello all,
    I have successfully installed NW 2004s ABAP Trial Version from the DVD in the SAP Press book: ABAP Objects.
    I requested a trial key (version SP8 or less) and received the following (I can't find what version has actually been installed):
    Installation of the license key
    Script for release 4.5A and higher
    saplicense -install [ifile=...]
    Database: ADABAS D

    LKEY = AISXXNKN6FGYQVYTBVPXTKQM
    SYSTEM-NR = 000000000311439750
    I followed the error messages give by the SAP License Administration application and changed the file to read:

    I now get this error:
    "Line 7 of the license key file: "SWPRODUCTNAME=" expected.
    Not sure what I need to do next.
    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    Hi There;
    Has been quite some time since the day I first installed the trial version. But if I remember correctly, you automatically got a temporary license  (4 weeks ?) after a successful installation. When it expires then you renew it ( the step you just did ).
    Please go to transaction slicence to check the temp permit (expiry date).
    Regards. jen

  • Trial version Licensed version

    Hi I have a client who has recorded some Captivate content on a trial version of the software. He now wants me to complete it by sending me the .cptx recorded on his trial version. I would then complete the edit on my fully licensed version of the software. Can anybody tell me if this will be a problem? I know that you can't publish properly out of a trial version but can you transfer and complete on a licensed version?
    Many thanks

    Hi there,
    Welcome to Adobe Community.
    I would like to inform you that a project published in a trial version of the software is set to expire on the expiry of the trial. However, if you have the .cptx file you can open that in a licensed version and publish it from the licensed version and there will be no problems.
    Note: Please check the expiry of the project at Edit > Preferences > Project > Start and End befor publishing in licensed version.
    Thanks!

  • Yet Another quesstion about moving Time Machine backups

    I have a NAS drive used to back up 3 Macs.  In order to upgrade to a RAID drive, I need to reformat the existing drive (along with the new drive I'm adding to the enclosure) - but that would obviously lose the existing backups. I had planned to move them to another NAS drive that I have, reformat, then move them back.
    All the discussions I've seen involve reformatting the target drive (which is not a Time Capsule, but a Buffalo NAS).
    I can't do that, because I have lots of archive data  (not backed up by time machine) on that disk I'll be using only temporarily.
    So, how can I temporarily move the sparsebundle without buying yet another drive?

    I recommend doing as I suggested. Cloning is the only correct way to backup a Time Machine backup drive. If you have data on the other drive you don't wish to lose then create a new partition on that drive. See the following:
    To resize the drive do the following:
    1. Open Disk Utility and select the drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list.
    2. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window. You should see the graphical sizing window showing the existing partitions. A portion may appear as a blue rectangle representing the used space on a partition.
    3. In the lower right corner of the sizing rectangle for each partition is a resizing gadget. Select it with the mouse and move the bottom of the rectangle upwards until you have reduced the existing partition enough to create the desired new volume's size. The space below the resized partition will appear gray. Click on the Apply button and wait until the process has completed.  (Note: You can only make a partition smaller in order to create new free space.)
    4. Click on the [+] button below the sizing window to add a new partition in the gray space you freed up. Give the new volume a name, if you wish, then click on the Apply button. Wait until the process has completed.
    You should now have a new volume on the drive.
    It would be wise to have a backup of your current system as resizing is not necessarily free of risk for data loss.  Your drive must have sufficient contiguous free space for this process to work.
