App can't reach license activation server

Q: App can't reach license activation server

Hello,

After using Capture One Pro version 4 RAW image workflow software from Phase One for a few weeks with no problems (and version 3 for a couple of years before that), suddenly the application has reverted from the Pro version which I paid for to the less capable Standard version.

Between my description of events and screenshots, Phase One support has determined that the application cannot reach the company's activation server to verify the status of my license code. My user account on their site says I have 2 free upgrades and 2 activations remaining. In the app, it says I have zero and zero.

I've tried deactivating and reactivating the software, but I get the error: Capture One was unable to deactivate the software on the server. This happens whether I try to connect from home or from my studio.

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP1.

Phase One support suggested creating a new Windows user account and trying it from there, but that didn't work. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software, and completely disabling my firewall (AVG 8).

The last from Phase One support (in Asia, who can reply no more than once a day ):

The activation procedure is using the following:

activate.phaseone.com that has IP address 68.195.194.106
Mac uses port 80 (http)
PC is also port 80 but uses also SOAP commands besides http
Also every machine needs to be able to ping itself on 128.0.0.1

That is all that is needed to run activation procedure as such.
WMI services need to be properly enabled to gather the data used for activation.Click to expand...

How can I determine if there's a problem related to any of these factors?

Thanks,
Jerome

Preferred Solution: App can't reach license activation server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: App can't reach license activation server

I'd be surprised if machines can ping themselves on 128.0.0.1, since the loopback address is 127.0.0.1!

I wonder what other misconceptions they have?

BTW, that IP address for activation is in NJ, not Asia.

I think I'd connected directly to my broadband modem, disable any firewalls, and run the activation. If that doesn't do it, you're pretty much out of luck.

Hi folks,
I am working with a company (that I have actually worked with for over 10 years on a consulting basis) and we are auditing our Microsoft Windows Server and server product licenses and preparing to upgrade Windows Server products.  We have ran into a snag, where the former System Administrator left the company a few years ago, however it was understood that the information regarding the VLSC was transferred to another partner in the company.  A new Systems Administrator has taken over, and we have determined that we do not have this information, including a Microsoft account username and password to access the VLSC and our Windows Server 2008R2 product keys, license agreements, SKUs, and downloads.  Unfortunately, the situation became took a turn for the worse about three months ago when the partner that had this information passed away.  No one at the company has access to this login information.  I currently administer most of their licensing, and have access to their much of their licensing information, download, product keys, etc., but I am clearly missing some very important ones.  I called Microsoft and they were of no assistance.  Since I am an administrator on the network, I can create a mailbox that the VLSC was probably originally registered under, however the VLSC says that Microsoft account is not even valid, not even prompting for the password.

I have a copy of 8 that I purchased during the initial pre release of this Operating system. I never used it until now that a friends mother was asking me about windows 8 so I told her I could let her try it on her XP system and see how she liked it and then if she liked it we could purchase a copy for her. Turns out she loves it, who knew.

Now that we are looking into this I am told that we would have to purchase the new software and reload it on her computer. I am hoping not to have to do this but I do want to keep my original cd's and license key. Another friend told me would could just buy the cd's or license key and enter it on the currently loaded system and that would release my original key back to me.

What's the verdict?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

When i installed SB X-Fi Series Support Pack 2.0 (05/15/2009) - Creative Labs trying to fix my sound on w7 64 bits i got DDL and DTS connect license activation with the package.

A:DDL and DTS connect license activation?

You really need a home theater receiver to take full advantage of that pack. DTS is 6 channels or 6.1 if you have a subwoofer.

What application are you using to play these formats?

Also it only works with the X-F- Extreme Titanium or higher end sound card.

Hi,

After installing a windows xp in a system it shows an icon at the bottom of the task bar to activate with the license key and and we can activate it by using the license key and this is one way but instead of activating it by using that icon is there any other way to activate the windows xp internally with the license key.

Dear Experts,

We are in process of changing the data center location from A to B.
Location :
A = OLD Physical Location of Data Center
B = New Location of Data Center
Server = KMS Server for Licensing
We are using KMS for the following
1. Microsoft Office 2010
2. Windows 7 Enterprise Edition
3. Windows 10
Earlier, We had tried to perform the Migration from the Data Center Location A to B. After the Migration, We have observed that all the Product key is saying out of tolerance.
To Verify that, We once again moved the Server KMS from Data Center Location B to A.
We have noticed, that KMS Server is working as expected
The Activation is happening by periodic sync with KMS Server from Windows Client Operating System.
Here the SAME IP, SAME DNS, SAME Host Name in use to make the KMS Server to work on the Location B.

Please do suggest if we have any step by step process to
1. Install the VAMT Version : 2.0.67.0
2. We are having the Product Key to be Inject.
3. Other & POST Configuration of VAMT Tool.

Please do the needful, Thank You

Hello,

My activation problem has been resolved, however I am trying to understand how it was resolved.

My laptop came with an OEM Win 7 key.

I recently upgraded my laptop and did a clean install of 7 (not from recovery CDs), entered my Windows Product Key, but Activation failed. I figured its because of the hardware changes.

Then I tried the automated phone activation instructions, which I expected to fail, but it succeeded! I suspected Id have to talk to someone, explain that my PC had a hardwre change, but none of that was required...Anyone know what goes on behind the scenes of the phone activation?

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

I have a problem registering my license key with iMindQ. The error is when I try to activate it by internet and it says "License number has been reached". Does anyone have a solution?
Thanks.
 

A:Problem with iMindQ license activation

Is this a first time activation or had you installed in before either on this computer or another one and now are trying to reinstall it?

If neither of the above have you changed any hardware components on your computer, in particular the motherboard or hard drive?

I found this on their web site that might be helpful:

http://www.imindq.com/frequently-asked-questions

If you change the computer or computer components or if you reinstall the computers operating system than a new product installation is required. In cases like this, you have two options how to move your License to your new or reformatted PC : - To automatically return your current activation by uninstalling iMindQ and choosing YES in the License Deactivation dialog. With this the activation will be returned to your License info and available again for your new/reinstalled PC. Note that deactivation requires active internet connection and no firewall or proxy that can prevent the communication. Click to expand...

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to setup a Print Server remotely - and the challenge that I am facing is that the Print Server is on a different sub-net (by default) than the main network.

The main network consists of the I.P. addresses: 192.168.174.0 to 192.168.174.254

The Print Server has a default I.P. address of: 192.168.0.10

Fortunately the remote location is using a Netgear SRXN3205 which supports Lan Multi-Homing.

I have added the address 192.168.0.1 to the router (as shown below) -

I have remote access to a Windows 7 computer, and I have tried adding a Static Route to it in order to reach the Print Server -

I have tried both of the following -

route add 192.168.0.10 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1

(above uses the Routers LAN Multi-Homing feature)

route add 192.168.0.10 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.174.254

(above uses the Routers standard I.P. address)

** Can't reach the print server either through ping or a web browser with either of the above commands ***

If anybody has any suggestions on how I can reach the config page of the Print Server (TP-Link TL-PS110U) they will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?
 

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

After a hard drive failure i purchased a new drive. (SSD 120Gb)

I have a genuine upgrade version of Windows 7 ultimate X64. I reinstalled the OS without putting my older version of XP on the drive first and it failed activation. An oversight on my part.

the drive did not instantly fail but over a period of weeks with failed to spin up when cold so i expected it to fail.

I created an easy transfer file. Within this file would it transfer the activation license so as to save me having to format install XP and then install 7 again?

Hi,

I recently bought a new custom built pc with win xp professional pre-installed.

Shortly after I received the pc I installed a new sound card which i didn't have any problems with (although i did have to reactivate the os due to the hardware change)

Today I wanted to change / replace the icon file shell32.dll. After testing it on an older laptop that also runs windows xp, i felt confident enough to replace the file on the new computer but when trying to restart he pc after the change, i got an error message and system failure saying i would have to restore the original file.

I tried to boot the pc from the windows installation disc, to run a system repair installation. The first part (where copying the new files onto the pc) went fine, but when i got to restart to finish the installation, the process got stuck at 34 minutes left to go.

Out of curiosity i then tried to start the computer. This time i didn't get the original error message, but instead after logging into my account i got the following error:

"A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error code 0x80090019."

after which i would get logged off again.
After reading up on this problem in a couple of forums I found and tried the following:

I'm trying to work with my server guys on this, but I think the problem may be more local. I cannot reach my personal web servers by pop3, http or ftp when using my domain names. I have tried logging in by server IP and everything works fine. They tell me that they can reach the sites ok and a secondary lookup website was able to ping by domain name.

I have used my command prompt and 3 different browsers, rebooted my entire system, shut down firewalls, cleared all caches (browser and dns) and rebooted again. Every other site on the web shows up fine, but mine just say 'server not found'. The only other posts I've seen have dealt with people who couldn't look up any domains at all, or are trying to access an intranet domain.

My enterprise has perchased many licenses of Windows 7 Pro.  including KMS activation license key.  And I have deployed the KMS activation infrastructure in my enterprise network.
Recently, we bought a set of Opliplex 3010 , 7010 & 9010 PCs, nearly 100 PCs. All of them are N-series without pre-installed Windows 7 by Dell factory.
I tried deploy OS and many enterprise APPs to these PCs through network , using MDT.

The OS image I used in MDT is Window 7 Pro Volume License Edition which was from Microsoft volume license site. But the KMS method cannot activate Windows 7 Pro. on Optiplex 3010, 7010, 9010 .

After deployment, the PCs telled that the the volume license key is invalid, MAK is required. Windows cannot be activated. 

But the issue has never come out on any other computers of our enterprise before.
I have been searching for the solution on internet, but get nothing. And some one said that the BIOS somewhere is locked or modified by Dell to prevent
prated operating system. But the OS and KMS we are using is lawful.
Can any one tell me how to activate our volume licensed Windows 7 Pro. by the KMS infrastructure in my enterprse? Thanks!

A:Volume license activation (KMS infrastructure) cannot activate Windows 7 Pro. on Optiplex 3010, 7010, 9010 ?

Hi,
did you purchase these computers without any OEM Windows license?
Volume Licensing agreements only offer "upgrade", not "full" - an existing license such as OEM, will have the necessary SLIC table in BIOS populated, and this is usually what VL products look for, to confirm legitimacy.
You can use the MGADiag utility from MS to confirm the SLIC table in BIOS has been populated.
Without the SLIC table populated in BIOS, it may be necessary for you to use MAK not KMSDon

Linux running Fedora 14 is the NFS server and License server for my Toon Boom Animation software. Mac Pro running Mountain Lion is the client.

This set up previously worked but after a power outage the software will not open on the Mac since it cannot verify the license with the linux license server.

Network setup:

Motorola Uverse Wireless Router/Modem ---> TrendNet Switch ---> Server and Client

Manual IP addresses set for the server and client

I have to use NFS Manager on the Mac to be able to view and edit the NFS mounting, but upon starting it, I recieve an error message saying that the Mac has reverted back to Bonjour only operation and that there is a possible problem with the forward and backward name resolutions.

I think the router is handling the DNS, and I don't know how to resolve the issue... I'm not all that knowledgeable about advanced networking and have been barely getting by until now.

Both computers are talking to each other since I can access files that are on the Mac from the Linux machine via SMB. Haven't figured out how to access linux files from the Mac though.

I'm possibly interested in buying a license for Windows Server 2012/16 Standard Edition. How can I do that?

I've searched around on the net. The Microsoft Store is out of stock of the only version they offer. After an hour and half on the phone with Microsoft they weren't able to get close to offering a license for sale. Apparently, you can't simply purchase a license online and download an installation image. I've noticed a few OEM licenses for sale from 3rd party resellers I am not comfortable with and I prefer a full retail version anyway.

So how do you buy a license from a reputable organization?

Thanks.

A:Buying a Windows Server License

The Server stuff was just released at Ignite a week or two ago. I have to imagine MS hasn't fully rolled things out just yet. This should clear up before October ends, but in the meantime, here is some stuff to read and puzzle over:
1. search for "Windows Server 2016 licensing FAQ" in Google or wherever (can't produce a workable PDF for the resulting document)
2. Windows Server 2016 Licensing Pricing | Microsoft

When MS gets around to putting it up for retail sale, you'll be able to find it easily using Google shopping, or even the Windows Store. Not yet, though...
HTH,

Does anybody know how can I remove a license from a Terminal Server?
I don't want to remove a license server I just want to remove a specific license from the license server to use that license for another computer. when I go to Terminal Services licensing Tool in Windows I only get the option to diactivate a licensing server.
I'm using Win 2003.

thanks,

I am a lab technician at my local college and we have a Windows 2000 server computer that runs various applications for three labs. We have both Win98 and Win2000 clients. We just installed the 2000 clients this semester, but we have been having numerous problems. My lastest problem is with drive mapping. Before we installed the new Win2000 computers, all the machines had the application drive D: mapped on all the machines and we never had any problems. But as soon as I mapped the drives on the 2000 clients, all the clients started getting errors that the number of connections to the server had reached its limit. I checked the logs on the server and it says it has been getting error with SMBserver license. I also saw that Windows 2000 pro cannot have over 10 connections max. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Any help is greatly appreciated. The new systems are Pentium 4 2.53ghz with 512mb of ram running Windows 2000 professional.

Hello my name is Adam. I am a desktop/lan admin for a warehouse supply company in New York. We run a strictly Windows 2000 domain with about 70 computers and maybe 3 or 4 Windows XP machines. I recently enabled a Terminal Services Server to allow 3 or 4 of my users to run database intensive Apps on the server. The reason for this is when they use specific functions in our "in house application" the app freezes up until it has finished its process (allocation of goods for large orders, takes about an hour tops). The app freezes up to do its job and the user is left with nothing to do because they cant touch the app until its done. So by enabling terminal services for them, they can run there allocations on the Terminal server, minimize it and keep doing there work on there computers.

Now, along with the Terminal Service Server, I am aware I need a Terminal service license server enabled on the network within 90 days. I have yet to enable a license server because I am somewhat unclear on its neccesity. I have read in the microsoft documentation

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/win2kts/default.mspx

that machines with Windows 2000 on them already have built in licenses and therefore you do not need to purchase additional licenses. The documentation also states that if you do not enable a license server, anyone without a pre issued license will not be able to connect.

I have an old (Pentium 233) NT 4.0 server. We want to get a new (Pentium III 733) and put Windows 2000 Server on it. I can get the upgrade with 10 users for MUCH cheaper than the full version. When I go to install the upgrade on a blank hard drive, will it require me to have NT 4 Server already installed, or can it just verify that I have the CD like the Win95 Upgrade does?

I'm not certain if Win2k server is the same, but I've installed Win2K Pro on a few PC's with uprade discs on a clean HD and only had to insert a CD into the drive during setup to verify that I owned a previous version.

A:My Genuine activation issue although I have a genuine license

Interesting.
The error message
Notification Reason: 0xC004F063.
...is a pretty specific one, and almost always means that the machine has been reinstalled using media other than the manufacturer's Recovery media, while still using the manufacturer's OEM_SLP Key instead of the COA Key.

For what version and edition of Windows is the machine licensed - according to the COA sticker on the case (or inside the battery compartment)

Hi,
I recently installed windows 7 on my new computer, i previously had windows on it but i did a clean install as i wanted to start from a clean slate.
When i tried to enter my product key in the setup it wouldn't accept it, now it is installed though i enter it in the activation part of the control panel and it returns the error:
"The activation server determined that the specific product key could not be used"

I am migrating my copy of windows 7 from my laptop to this computer so it was fine when i activated my laptop a few months ago but now when i try and activate my new computer it comes up with the error.

I was going to wipe my laptop in a couple of days when i got time and i was wondering if that would be what i need to make it so the second computer will activate or if it's something else.

Oh, one other thing, i got my licence key through the uni student offer meaning that i'm not sure if its an upgrade key or not..

Cheers

Your licence is for one PC only, at any one time, you may need to phone MS for reactivation.

Yes, yes I know microsoft knowledge base has a fix. However, it does not tell me what file to fix. Event ID 10016 ? COM Security Policy Configuration It says in step #5 right click the application. What fricken application?

What is a clsid and an appid? I did some google searching with the CLSID and they suggested it was a file named app_(something I forget). However, how do I verify on my computer what the CLISD and the APPID are pointing to? This is so confusing all the fixes I find. It seems to have something to do with Nvidia and my ASUS MOBO.

I wonder if somebody could shed some light to a particular product activation problem that Im having with SERVER 2003 Enterprise edition.

We were having some electrical power outages that knocked off line our server and we had our SERVER 2003 software activated, for some reason when I try to log in to the OS it tell me that the product needs activation. Once I enter the product activation screen it tell that the product is already activated and it sends me back to the log in window repeating the same cycle.

I would appreciate if somebody has a solution on how I could get past the login screen, all the server services seem to be online. One thing is that this server is not connected to the Internet or modem.
