Error: License can't be activated

During the activation process, some information of the hardware is transferred to the web server, which generates the license file. Once this process is completed, the download of new license starts automatically.

Invalid hardware key?

Usually an activated XP/VS license is bound to the hardware of each machine. Based on manual requests we do allow reasonable reactivation requests.

Transfer a license

License releases are done by our webserver --- and this machine uses the Thinstuff registered email address
(license is tied to). If you want to move the license to a different machine the license needs to be released for reactivation
and reactivated on the new server.

Warning: No valid license found

First, please check if you have installed the latest version of XP/VS Server. Second, did you reboot your machine after installing XP/VS Server? Third, please verify if our Service is running. Under "services.msc" --> Check if Start-up type from "Thinstuff XP/VS Server for Windows" is started and set to automatic.
