Archicad 22 doesn't recognize hardware key


I have a hardware license key for ArchiCAD 21 and last week I opened LMT and I saw I can update the license to ArchiCAD 22... I did that and now on LMT I have the license for "Archicad 22 International Commercial Single License"


I installed 22 and when I launch it, I select "I have a Commercial License on a Hardware or Software Key" and then I have only two options, to download a software key or to activate an emergency license. 


I don't have a GS ID with a license, only the hardware dongle. I have created an GS ID only to post this. 

ArchiCAD 21 is working but there's an annoying bug and I was really hoping I can use 22. 


I am out of ideas for how to resolve this issues. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Did you install the INT version of 22?

If so it should work with the license you have.


If you downloaded and installed a different language version, that may be why it is not running.

Thank you! I checked and I was using SWE version. I installed the INT version and its working fine! 


Thank you again!
