I had a computer malfunction and deactivated my Trados 2014 on my regular computer to activate it in my backup computer, and it didn't work - the backup computer copdy of Trados kept issuing :

(Error: We cannot complete this activation because the license is still registered by SDL for another computer. Check that deactivation was completed on the other computer. (The deactivation must be send to SDL.)

Then I fixed my regular computer and guess what, the same error message appears here and I cannot activate Trados on any computer now. I have a project to deliver tomorrow and I am in a rush.
