I've been running SDL Trados 2009 for a month or so now with no major problems. Until now!

This morning, I attempted to open a file and Studio refused to open, with the message that 'You need a professional license to run the software on a corporate network'. Nothing has changed about my network configuration since I last opened it.

I am working on a network, but have always done so. Does the software update itself or is the error spurious?

I've rebooted, nothing happens. What can I do?
