Causes:

There are three (3) possible reasons for this error.

  • The license file was copied to a different computer.
  • You have renamed the computer.
  • The computer name is over 15 characters.

Solution:

To resolve this error, you will need to determine which of the three (3) is the cause.

  • The license file was copied to a different computer. This will not work due to the encoding in the license file.  Use the same Authcode to activate the Utilities on the computer or contact us at support@rand.com for assistance, please send us the license file and new computer name.

  • You have renamed the computer. This will invalidate the license file.  You can try deleting the license file and activate again using the same authcode, or you can email the problem with the license file to support@rand.com to start a case and we can fix it for you.  You will need to provide the correct computer name.

  • The computer name is over 15 characters. You will have to email the license file and the full computer name to us at support@rand.com, then we can fix it for you.

If you have a Network License:
If you are using the Network version of our Utilities and receive the error, then the server name or MAC may have changed, and you will need to get a new license file.   Email the problem, new MAC & Server name and the license file to us at support@rand.com
