Recently my PC crashed and when I do the file recover it tries to open in education, says it cant and that I need to save the file in a education version and then closes. How can I force recovery to open with the commercial license. Or how do I remove the Education license because I have no use for it anyway.
Hi Barry thanks for the response. It is starting Archicad in commercial, From the "Start Archicad" screen if I open a normal project it opens normally into commercial Archicad and works. It is when I open the red recovered files that it appears to restart in Education and I get the error. Is there no way to remove the Edu license? If I uninstall and reinstall will that remove the Edu license and will I be able to still access the the recovery files?
Hi Barry Thanks, I had already tried that, It didn't work. Archicad must store Edu license somewhere else now. I gave up and uninstalled Archicad, licence manager, etc and reinstalled it all again. It worked and I don't have the Edu license anymore and surprisingly it found the recovery files automatically and recovered them all correctly including the teamwork one. I understand why Graphisoft has a locked education version, it would a lot more straight forward if it was completely standalone version and it used a different .exe file extension eg .epln So I would recommend if you are migrating from education to commercial license uninstall completely and start from fresh. Thanks for trying regards John
