When activating my student license, I receive the error message: "The license has already been activated. You cannot activate it again." Why do I receive this message?
Your student license is connected to your computer. After the first activation on your computer, a "fingerprint" with information about your hardware components is sent to us. If you try to activate the same license on another computer, this error message appears. Changing specific hardware or formatting/partitioning your driver may also cause the loss of your license. In such a case, you have to previously transfer the license to another computer or back again. For the description of how it works, see this PDF document on page 2.
