WIBU error after upgrade to XP PRO

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello All,

I recently had a comp crash which erased my profile leaving with essentially a fresh comp. Instead of reinstalling everything and risking it continuing to happen, I decided to upgrade from 2K to XP pro.

I did a complete format and install on the OS partition, installed Archicad 8.1. But when I put the key in and start the program I get an error that the key either isnt found or isnt valid. The error code has mostly been error 1050017 & also error code 128.

I also have Archicad installed on a laptop that has XP pro. And it works on there no problem. So the key does work.


Any help is appreciated.

Patrick,
If you download and install the latest WIBU drives it should get you up and going again.

Did you restart the machine between installing 8.1 and plugging the dongle? When plugged in, the dongle should be recognized by the machine as a new USB device, and it should offer you to install its software automatically. Do so, and then start 8.1

Try uninstalling 8.1 and reinstalling it. Also, do the XP update; it also might be that you have some hardware, especially if the computer is a relatively older one, that does not agree with XP fully. If any other USB device is making trouble, then ... that's it. Hardware.

Update.


The exe above kept giving me errors when it tried to install. Mostly about lang files. But it got me thinking and I checked the install disk. SInce wibu is a separate prog from archicad the exe was on the disk. I installed from there restarted plugged in the dongle and it worked.

Unfortunately I had a reboot, and I'm starting to think the HD is going out on me. Once it restarted I tried going back into archicad and it again wasn't recognizing that the dongle is there.

I do a reinstall and see what I can up with .

Thanks
