This serial number cannot be activated automatically

Issue

When trying to activate FineReader on another computer or after OS reinstallation the following message occurs:

This serial number cannot be activated automatically

 

Cause

This message appears when the serial number of the program you're trying to activate was blocked. This can happen for several reasons:

  • The serial number was activated very frequently
  • The serial number was used for the program upgrade
  • As a result of a violation of the end-user license agreement

Resolution

In order to receive support on this issue, please submit a request.

    Having re-built my failing Windows 10 computer, I have been unable to use Abbyy FineReader 11 as it is failing to register because it is saying I am trying to use the product on too many computers.
     
    The serial number is of the form FPES-11xx-2xxx-xxxx-xxx9-9xx5
     
    Can you help, please?

    Al intentar activar el programa ABBYY FineReader 11 (Edición en español) me llega el siguiente mensaje:

    Error en la activación.

    Este número de serie no se puede activar automáticamente.

    Es posible que esté intentando activar más copias del programa de las que determina el Contrato de licencia para el usuario final.

     

    Tengo CD original. Intento instalarlo en un sólo dispositivo. El dispositivo en el que lo tenía instalado tuvo una avería y, estando cubierto por una garantía extendida, me lo han cambiado por el actual dispositivo, en el que quiero volver a instalar el programa. Actualmente no dispongo del dispositivo averiado. Si han cumplido con la legislación vigente, el anterior dispositivo en el que estaba instalado el programa ABBYY FineReader 11 (Edición en español) habrá sido formateado.

    Gracias por comprobar lo que expongo y por la atención a esta reclamación.

    Bom Dia, 

    Troquei de computador e desinstalei a licença no antigo e tentei ativar no novo, mas não consigo ativar pois diz que estou tentando instalar em mais de um computador. Utilizo Fine Reader 14 Corporativo.

    Espere um retorno.
