New activation code till end of March 2015 doesn't work

Post by Viseman » Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:51 am

Hi,

after entering the new code till the end of March the program still shows that it will only work till 30. Jan. 2015. I tried it on different machines and on different OS's such as Mac OS and Windows.

I wanted to ask if anyone else is having the same problem as I.

Thanks in advance.

Mike will have to address this one.

As a work-around, you can set your system date to 1/30, start MakeMKV, and then reset your date.

I have no way of checking it myself - mine is registered.

Confirmed, I'm having the same issue. Enter the code for March 2015, restart the application, and it still tells me the license expires January 30th.

Same here. I just came here to ask about this. Has this been reported yet? Now the software doesn't run due to the key not working.

Same here... Just installed 1.9.1 and getting the "Activation period has expired" message. New beta key not working.

1. Change your computer date back to Jan 29th
2. Start MakeMKV and it will tell you the key has been removed
3. Restart MakeMKV
4. Register with the Key (T-fYWqZ5aJ9q89wyzdBuNeCpufU1JlFApsQi2eCoYqVhRYQEFWoacW2qjStHO8RaAGXo)
5. Restart MakeMKV
6. I'm currently ripping a new BD I bought
Cheers!

Same Problem...

had to switch back to 1/29 so 1.9.1 is running with the new key (ripping without errors).
It reports 1/31 as expiration date with the new key.
When switching back to actual date it immediately expires.

When the key is removed and restarted it reports
Evaluation: Ended
This Version expires: 4/21/2015 (just installed 1.9.1)

I found the following solution. In my user-directory (c:\user\%username%\makemkv\) i found the file dump_ID4_F2_265BD3EB651976A1.tgz. I opend this with 7zip. Then I found the file dump_ID4_F2_265BD3EB651976A1.tar and opend it also in 7zip. In this archive I found the file version.txt. I have installed makemkv version 1.9.1 but in the file version.txt was the version number still 1.8.13. After changing the the version number to 1.9.1 in texteditor and aktualisation of the archive-file was all ok. Best regards! Sorry forget it - using Windows 7.

Same issue. Tried to open 1.9.0 MakeMKV this morning, and it told me the key had expired. Went ahead and downloaded the new version (1.9.1), then tried to register with the new beta key, and it told me that the software version was too old. I get stuck in an endless loop of trying to register, then the program shutting down, then it reopening and asking me for the beta key again. I've tried uninstalling, restarting the computer, then reinstalling with the new key, and no luck.

This is on Mac OS 10.10.2.

same for me here, installed 1.9.1 and used new reg code (supposedly valid until March 2015). Does not work...

The trick with setting the date to 29th and then using the new code works. I am ripping (leaving the wrong date)

Confirmed that the actual BETA Key does not work on any PC :-( ...Tested on 4machines...

However,as a workaround,the changing of date/time back to 29th of January makes the program works again...Never had any issues so far...
