“Number of activations in last 30 days exceeded” or “License used with new installation or database. You can change and activate new installation twice in 30 days. Do you wish to activate this installation?”
How can I use my license?
When purchasing a single license one installation (copy) of TSS can be used on one PC.
I have a laptop and a desktop which I use both, can I install TSS on both computers?
Using a single license only one copy can be used, so you need two licenses.
Can I install TSS into two directories on one PC?
You can, but you need two TSS licenses. When running TSS it’s necessary to use the corresponding TSS account for the currently running isntallation.
What if I bought a new computer?
You can move your installation to the new computer using the following way: first install TSS using the regular installer. Then move your TSS files from the old installation directory to the new one, to keep the database of accounts. The submission results can be kept by moving the profile directories (set at the profile tab).
When starting TSS it says the following: “License used with new installation or database. You can change and activate new installation twice in 30 days. Do you wish to activate this installation?”. What does it means?
It means, that you have used the license (TSS account) on a different installation / copy of TSS (other PC, other directory, etc.) as the last time. If you accidentally used the wrong account, then click on “No” and use the correct one. If you no longer want to use the original installation with this TSS account (e.g. you moved it to a different PC, you want to work with an empty database, etc.), then click “Yes”.
WARNING: You can do so only twice in a 30 day period, after that your license can be used only on the previous installation till the 30 day period of double activation expires, so max. 30 days.
