Hi,

am using Windows XP and Wordfast Pro 2.4.2 and Classic 6.01g.

Licensed Wordfast in July, a few days after I received the license file.
Classic works fine within MS Word 2003.
Wordfast Pro will not quit Demo Mode.
Under Help > License Management > Verify the current License certificate it shows the valid license until 2014, but Demo Mode is still there, even after restart of Wordfast and reboot of PC.

When I (re)-install the license, it says License sucessfully installed, but Demo Mode is still there.
When I click Help > Wordfast Updates > it says "Update Site is not available in Demo Mode".

Any idea, what I can do?

Many thanks

Install No Oct 5, 2011

Dear Lolita,

Apparently, your .lic file is not properly installed. Please go to "Help" menu > "Licence Management" and see your Install No. Is it the same as your .lic file name? If not, so you need to re-license by entering your shown Install No. into Wordfast online licensing system. Moreover, could you please double-check that the "date" of your machine is correct.

You can watch this small video, describing Wordfast Pro licensing steps:

Re-Licensed Wf Pro Oct 7, 2011

Dear Yasmin,

great, thanks. The .lic-file I received in July had, for whatever reason, different numbers than my install number for WF Pro. So I relicensed Wf Pro, installed the number and yes it worked.


Many thanks

Lolita
