Hi,

I recently upgraded my pc from windows 7 to windows 10. Unfortunately Trados Studio 2014 no longer runs and the following message is shown:

An error occurred while retrieving your license.
Unauthorized use of this program may result in severe civil and criminal penalties.

Any advice is much appreciated.

James

Dear Mr Greenfield,

This is Guillaume from SDL.

Could you tell me when you upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 and if you returned the activation of your Studio 2014 beforehand?

Kind regards,

Guillaume

I didn't return the activation of Studio 2014 beforehand. I upgraded about a week ago. Thank you for your assistance.

I have returned your activation manually. Could you activate Studio 2014 again?

Kind regards,

Guillaume

A solution Jun 15, 2016

Just in case if anyone else might have run into the same problem, the following article from the SDL Knowledge Base has helped me:

Click Start > Run...
Type: services.msc
The Services dialog will open.
Scroll in the list to:
Nalpeiron Licensing Service
Nalpeiron Control Service
Right-click on Nalpeiron Control Service and select Properties.
In the Properties dialog box, switch the Start Up Type option to Automatic.
Click Apply and OK to confirm the changes.
Right-click on the service name again and choose Start.
Repeat step 5 to 8 with the service Nalpeiron Licesing Service.
Close the Service dialog and start Studio again.

Please note that in my case, the error code was
ServiceVersionNotCurrent -65

If you get a different error code upon trying to deactivate your license, you may need to look for a different solution.

Thanks very much Alya for this solution, Studio is now working for me. One thing I am wondering about is that Guillaume said above that he had returned my activation manually, yet my version of Studio is still activated.
