Q: What does the "ACTIVATION ERROR: THIS SYSTEM IS ALREADY ACTIVATED" mean and how can I resolve it?

A: This error typically occurs under two circumstances:

  1. Account Conflict: If you're trying to activate a plugin on a system where it has already been activated under a different account, this error can occur. This often happens if you're using a shared or previously used system.

  2. License File Issue: The error might also appear if the license file for the plugin failed to delete during a previous deactivation process. In this case, the system still recognizes the old license, preventing reactivation.

Steps to Resolve:

  1. Locate the License File:

    • For PC Users: Go to C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\Korneff Audio\[Plugin Name]\. Replace [Your Username] and [Plugin Name] with your actual Windows username and the name of the plugin, respectively.
    • For Mac Users: Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/Korneff Audio/[Plugin Name]/. Again, substitute [Plugin Name] with the actual name of the plugin.
  2. Delete the License File:

    • In the folder mentioned above, look for a file named [Plugin Name].license.
    • Delete this file. This action removes the old or conflicting license information.
  3. Reactivate Your Plugin:

    • After deleting the license file, you should be able to activate your plugin with your current license without any further issues.

Note: Be cautious while deleting files from your system. Ensure that you delete only the specified license file to avoid unintended software issues.
