I have Trados 2009 and have always used it (almost) without problems.
Now, every time I start it I get the window asking for the activation code, I enter it, and this is all I get:
"The activation of the fulfillment is denied by the activation policy because max extra acts exceeded # 0110-78350 (Error code 50040)"

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the lot but nothing changes. I have also been through the forum and tried deleting the 3 files in the Trados Folder as advised, but neither that worked.
I am working on a big job and getting quite angry about it.

Can anyone help? Thank you so much

Hi Francesca,

Please log in to your SDL online account then go to licensing section - click on Return License - then Force Return and select which activation you wish to return ( 1 or 2)


Hope it helps,

Kind Regards,
