Dear colleagues,

A couple of weeks ago I reinstalled the operating system (Windows 7) on my computer. Before I did so, I returned my Studio licence (by clicking on the corresponding menu option) and got the message: "You successfully deactivated SDL Studio" (or something like that).

However, when I go to the SDL homepage and log into "My SDL" in order to download the program and install it, it says that my licence is still in use. I don't understand this. Since I returned the licence, should the licence not be available?

Has anybody else ever experienced this problem?

Kind regards,

¡Hola! I am experiencing the same problem right now, excepting that my license is for Freelance Plus edition. Therefore, I have not one but two PCs where TRADOS does not operate. At least I have DéjàVu for working on the sdlxliff and ttx files.

Y ahora, ¿quién podrá defendernos?
