I’m waiting for Yamaha to call me back but meanwhile…
I try to launch Dorico 3.5, which I have done thousands of times, but today it tells me that no license was found. It wants an activation code. I click on enter activation code (I’m not sure which one to use, but it doesn’t matter), but “Fixing relevant file permissions failed.” So I follow the advice to run as administrator
Application " has caused the following error Process with the ID NOT found
I get to click OK to abort.
Four aborts gets me back to enter activation code
Now I get Application “LCC2” has caused the following error" Process with the ID NOT found.
Click OK to abort
I click OK to abort, and I get "Application "Unknown Application has caused the following error:
An unknown interapplication error occurred. In case the problem persists, please close all applications and restart your computer.
Rebooting gets me to repeat all of the above one more time.
Going to MySteinber account, I see there is a reactivate license. Oh, good. So I try that.
It asks me to enter my new Soft eLicensor number. I don’t have one of those.
I try entering my old one and click ‘Reactivate Licence’ nothing happens.
I delete it, and it tells me to enter the new one
I have a project due Sunday morning and many hours of work to do on it, so, y’know. This is bad.
Well, after waiting 2 hours for Yamaha to answe the phone, they just disconnected me
Their support hours are over at 1 PM my time, I guess. This is just super.
