I installed Trados Studio 2009 on Friday, and everything looked fine. I did some work.
I am trying to start it today, but it asks for activation again! I am entering the activation code, but I get the following message: Could not contact activation server (Error code 50003).
Desperately, I tried to work on a different project in Trados 2007, but to my surprise it is also not activated and I get the same error when trying to activate it!!! I purchased the products together from SDL, I have been using only Trados 2007 for a couple of months already and it's been working fine, and I only installed 2009 recently because the software was necessary for a project.
Then go to the tab called Solution Finder and now go here;
- I receive an error message related to activating or returning my license, or I have an issue related to product activation.
-- I get error message 50003 or 50004 during license activation.
