Student license expired error

Question

Hello all

I'm a student using Vectorworks for the first time.

I have downloaded from the Student Portal and used the serial number provided. This worked for a few weeks, however now, whenever I launch Vectorworks it asks me to activate and then says 'Vectorworks cannot be activated because your software license has expired.' The program then closes.

I have uploaded my student ID again on my account last week, however the issue has still not changed.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the software too, but still no change.

Could anyone suggest how to fix this problem?

Any assistance would be great!

Thanks!

You should be able to go to https://student.myvectorworks.net, log in with the same email and then on the left you should see an option to manage products or licenses (apologies, some of the portals may be worded a little differently depending on where you are) and you can request it through there. Let me know when you've done so and I can approve it if you're in a rush.

Everything looks in order, you should now be approved and good for another 13 months.

Hi! @Jim Wilson

 

I am trying to extend my licence for VW 2012. I have uploaded my new student ID, reinstalled the software, entered the new licence number, but am still being told that the licence has expired. 

 

Can you help please? 

 

Many thanks,

Hi all,

 

I am a current undergrad student and I downloaded the educational version of Vectorworks. The program ran with no problem for a few months but now when I state the program it says I need to activate my account. I click activate then another window pops up saying that my license is expired.

 

However, my account online states that my serial number is new and active. I have already uploaded proof of enrollment. I'm not sure what to do!

 

Please help.
