|Licenses locked to machine suddenly unlocked 20/08/2020 at 23:00 #130907|
I'm sure somebody else had a similar problem to me, but I can't find the exact post, forgive me.
Today I was playing Edinburgh without an internet connection (and a few hours away from one unfortunately). I have locked all my licenses, including Edinburgh, to my machine and so far this feature has worked well since the update that fixed the initial problems it had when V5 was released. After an hour or so of play, during which everything had worked fine, the simulation suddenly closed. I can't remember if it said 'license has been removed', I think it said the license had expired? I'm sorry it was a few hours ago now. No save file was created, but that was okay, I was only a few minutes into a restart from my most recent save. I had actually restarted SimSig a few times during play, I'm still getting my head around Edinburgh. Anyway, I reloaded SimSig and all of my locked licenses were no longer showing as locked and all of the payware sims were showing yellow signals. I've just got back home and back to an internet connection and they are all now showing green aspects again, with the little icon showing they're locked to my machine. I don't know if that has to do with restarting the computer (I couldn't be bothered to try that at the time, I'm sorry, been a bit of a long day) or if it has to do with re-establishing an internet connection.
I'll try and provide more details if I can, but not sure what else would help?
