If I remember right, I think I had to completely un-install Edius, including some well hidden files, than re-install. Can someone point me to the list of hidden files I need to remove before I re-install Edius?
If this does not work (Re-activation) am I suppose to call or email "Videoguys" and ask them to fix the activation problem? I purchased Edius 7 from them, back in 2014.

My 2 cents...I am not certain. The activation is linked with you eID and the licence. It "seems" that they are "attached". So you must respect these 2 elements you create when installing Edius. So when starting Edius it will ask you the license number and then you have to fill your eID create the first time with the password...

I have met some problems too and only these step by step procedure has relaunch the program. Of course, may be that your copy (clone) HDD contains some elements analysed by Edius that locked and give issue. Then I only see to restart from "scratch" with a fresh windows installation.

These are some thinkings... but not reliable considering that it's only based on my poor experience
