I got the message max. acts acceeded #0336 when I wanted to install Trados 2009 on my laptop. What can I do? I paid for my licence a lot of money. I have only one programme working on a machine. I deleted all other programmes. Do I have to buy another licence?

Please specify the details Nov 19, 2011

Hi Gert,

Please specify the details about your license: is it an upgrade or no, is the software already installed and activated on another computer? This is unclear from your post.

Max activations exceeded Nov 19, 2011

Hi Gert

You must have had your Trados activated on another computer, maybe even on two. SDL limits the amount of computers that you can activate Trados on. If you get a new computer you have to first return the activation. It's complicated, but SDL support is quite helpful with this issue.
