I receive the error message [ Could not contact activation server (Error code 50041)] and sometimes I receive the error message [ The activation of the fulfillment is denied by the activation policy because fulfill count exceeded the seat count # 7290-5816 (Error code 50040)].

I had to reinstall my Windows XP Professional, and now I installed my Trados Studio 2009 but cannot re-activate it.

I went to the license manager, but the option "return license" is not active. I also made sure that no firewall preventing contacting servers.

Please help!

Thanks

Waleed

You need to contact SDL support Feb 13, 2011

Hi Waleed,

Looks like you haven't returned the license before reinstalling Windows. You will be unable to re-activate Studio without SDL support.

Thanks Natalia for your response!

Do they offer free support or do I have to buy a support plan?

Best regards

Waleed

Dear Waleed,

We offer free support for all Licensing and Installation problems via our online Solution Finders: http://kb.sdl.com/index.aspx?t=sf.

If you have already tried the suggestions in KB article # 2298 Troubleshooting common errors during license activation (http://kb.sdl.com/article.aspx?article=2298&p=1), I would suggest you follow this path:
- Licensing Problems
- My software runs in demo mode only, or Activation/Licensing does not work.
- Activation Code
- I receive an error during activation.
- My firewall settings are correct.
- This kind of software is turned off. I still get an error when I try to activate my software.

The form will log a case in our Support system and a Support Engineer will deal with your request as soon as possible.

Best regards,
Judith
