Hi Sebastion:

   Im not sure why that would happen. In your system registry, does Darwin show up as
properly licensed? Even that shouldnt cause this symptom, but Im curious if theres a relationship.
I cant think of anything that would stop Darwin and M4 talking.. Is this the latest version of each?

Hi Art,

the latest Version of both components are installed.
You write I can get the license info from the System registry- where can I find the entry?
(Really a registry key?)

Okay- new info:
I found it (help - System Information -plugins)
You're right: Plugins -> mcDarwin Shows "Not licensed"
The licence key is her: C:\Mach4Hobby\Licenses. Whats wrong?
Do I have to execute anything in darwin for licensing like in Mach4?

Hi:

   You need to download a new license, the keys went bad at one point. A new key should fix it.. if not, Mach4 itslef
needs to be updated..

Okay, I reinstalled Darwin and the license file-
now I see that the license is valid.
All issue seems to be fixed now-
thank you for your tipps!
Great work, glad to use the software!

Best regards,
Sebastian

Sebastian,

FYI, the latest version of Darwin that I've seen is 2461-a and was uploaded by Art in post 762, May 20, 2015.  The one shown on the Mach download page is very old.

Yup, and just so you will know, I try to keep the very first topic of this post updated to include links to the latest plugin.

Did not know that.  I just go to the latest posts.  Given there are a huge number here, I don't start at the beginning.   ;)

It might be helpful if the latest were to be posted under the latest M4 download.  Or maybe that's NOT the latest download.   ;D

that's because there is no licence

they give X amount of time for testing only if you wont it to run all the time you have to get a licence
