Activation necessary after activation (Q868)

The information in this article applies to: 
MODDE 11
SIMCA 14.1
Summary: 

If you installed the software as a trial-version the very first time you installed (e.g. not entering an activation key), multiple activations may be necessary to keep using the software.

Symptoms: 

After 30 days a message that you need to activate is displayed in the software.

Cause: 

The very first activation key, which in for the trial version internally is 'demo', triggers the reactivation.

Workaround: 

As an administrator, remove the 'demo'-entry in the registry either manually (see More Information) or by running the attached script.

Status: 

Will be fixed in the next release.

More Information: 

Change the registry value "Activation Key" to something other than 'demo', like <empty> or "demo1" in the relevant key;
