Symbio GDS unable to activate with community key

Recommended Posts

I got this error when I want to register Symbio GDS :

post-223-0-56130500-1346358636.png

So why it's limited in number of activation? for Community Edition?

I just want to see what's new in the current version. I'm not trying to cheat or something.

If it's not possible to activate, what I need to do to uninstall it? Currently I got a dialog that tell me to activate it each time I start LabVIEW.

Any idea?

Thank you

Dany

From Symbio's GOOP FAQ:

Q: Why does the activation suddenly fail?

A: Normally, this should not happen. Symbio‘s license server counts the number of activations and the default setting allows the license to be activated on five different machines. This is normally sufficient. If you hit the limit, just contact GOOP(at)symbio.com.

The server was down for a while, but should be up and running again.

Any probloems send us the Email activaton details on goop@symbio.com

Correction:

That error is when you have activated the same key on to many different users/computers.

Send an email to goop@symbio.com and they will crank up the numbers of allowed activations, sorry for the problem this might have casued you.

That this happened is actually kind-of neat: it suggests the number of people taking up community editions of the GDS has exceeded Symbio's predictions. Yay!

By the way, if you're reading this thread and don't know what the GDS is, have a look at it here. Then download and install it. Do it. Do it. Install it. Do it.

Finally it was my fault... I was entering the old Community activation COMM-UNIT-YEDI-TION-2011

I'm late in my year count :)

So use COMM-UNIT-YEDI-TION-2012

And when you've done that, Use it! Use it!

Really if you do OOP, do yourself a favour and use it. It boosts productivity! And in the next version it even does that for the Actor Framework too!

(No, I do not work for them. :D )

It's great, I love it, but I only use a tiny fraction of its power (Native GOOP only) - I just wish there was a way I could pay a smaller amount to take the 10 class limit off the subset of the functionality that I use. Unfortunately, I can't justify spending that much of my hard-earned grant income on something that is very nice, very helpful when I'm coding LabVIEW, but not actually core to mission... :(

...and also the upcoming version supports many more classes in the Project Windows and the UML Class diagram for the community user.

I'm not usually one for personal advice, but you might want to see a doctor about that.

Thanks Asbo. :angry: I just spat my coffee all over my keyboard :D
