Activation in SDL Trados 2007
Thread poster: Coreen
Nov 4, 2008

I just install SDL Trados 2007. The installation was successful. At the end I entered the activation code. The activation was successful except that on the SDL website the product is not activated, and each time I try to open a memory I am asked to enter the activation code and it says I am on a trial period.
Please advise

License number Nov 4, 2008

What does the License Manager say? Is your license activated there, or is it not? If not, you might ask SDL to provide you with a different license number. If they don't want to, provide them with remote access to your Win Desktop and let them do the activation for you.
