I installed Vista on my computer and I try to reinstall Trados 2007 Freelance. Workbench does work in demo mode, but I can't activate online my licence, even if I shut down my firewall and antivirus software, as I get the following error message:

The activation of the fulfillment is denied by the activation policy because max extra acts exceeded # 4586-8520 (Error code 50040).

Can anyone help me please?

Kind regards,
Eva Couppé-Deak

Ask SDL to reset the activation code Oct 20, 2008

My Vista laptop crashed, and after re-installing Trados 2007, I had to activate Workbench every time I opened the application, or run it in demo mode.

I submitted a support request to SDL, and the next morning, they called me up and said they had given me a new activation code. Now everything works again.

Deactivation before reinstalling? Oct 21, 2008

Hi Eva,
did you return your licence before installing Win Vista? If not, you might be trying to activate the third instance of Trados while you are only allowed to use two instances at a time.
