Save [Ctrl-S] Session Report Pop-Up in ArchiCAD 23

Anonymous
Not applicable
In ArchiCAD, Built 5005 and Built 5010, this kind of error report often appears when I save the file [Ctrl-S]
Surprisingly this will appear when I just added a line cut (Section Tool) if I delete it. Error report will not appear.

When there is only one cut line (Section Tool) it will continue to appear but if I delete the cut line (Section Tool) on the Project Map then the Error report disturbance will not appear as a Pop-Up.

I checked the session report and the report appeared:
C: \ Program Files \ GRAPHISOFT \ ARCHICAD 23 \ ARCHICAD.exe
Unused in temporary folder: 233482.8 MB
-------------------------------------------------- ----------------- EcoDesigner STAR license activation failed.
Protection Error Code: 200
EcoDesigner STAR Add-On functions will be disabled.
You can continue using ARCHICAD without the features of EcoDesigner STAR.

I never used the EcoDesigner STAR Add-On at all why is this kind of error message appearing?
What does the cut line (Section Tool) have to do with the error message EcoDesigner STAR license activation failed.
This is a bug which is quite annoying when I will do the Save [Ctrl-S] it will always appear like this.

It will always exist along the cut line (Section Tool) in the Project Map even though I never use special functions that involve or use EcoDesigner STAR because we in Indonesia don't have the License on Codemeter for EcoDesigner STAR yet.

Has anyone experienced the same thing? What should I do?
Graphisoft's solution if this is a bug?

I am not sure about that ECODesigner star error.

In 25 and before I can understand it is there if you do not have and ED* license.

But in 26 it it supposed to be built in now as far as I know.

But I just started 26 and I get the same ED* license activation failed message.

 

I don't use it anyway so I just ignore it.

I just opened 26 and did not get this message.

So at some point since I last posted, it has fixed itself - I never noticed.

 

I just checked in the HELP menu and it shows I have a license.

But you do need an SSA/Forward support agreement.

If you have a support agreement then contact your local support to ask what s happening.

Without a support agreement, you will not have EcoDesigner STAR - yous standard EcoDesigner.

I am also getting this error although the Ecodesigner is activated in the license tab with the SSA.
