Keeps asking for licence


(Paul Stokes) #1

Every time I start Rapidweaver 8 it asks for my licence code. This has only started happening since the beginning of 2019

Hi Paul!

Sorry to hear about this.

There’s a few reasons why this could be happening, but here are the top few:

  • You have a network/software firewall that blocks incoming/outcoming connections (ex: LittleSnitch)
  • An app like CleanMyMac, MacKeeper (etc) is installed that deletes files RapidWeaver uses to store registrations
  • Permissions issue and RapidWeaver doesn’t have sufficient privileges to read/write to your preference file

Can you do a run through and see if any of those are more likely in your case?

Thanks Aaron,

It turns out to have been a pesky disk cleaner app!

All sorted now.

Thanks again,

Paul

Glad to hear that’s been resolved! :slight_smile:

Aaron or Paul, could you please provide more information? I have been using Clean my Mac for some time, but just this past week, RW has lost my registrations for a bunch of plugins - PlusKit, SiteMap, Weaver Pix, etc. (but not RW itself).

I have quit Clean my Mac but of course these registrations are still missing - could you please explain the steps to restore these files? Can I find them on Time Machine?

Thanks,

Bonnie

I don’t believe there’s a way to restore licenses from time machine. You will need to re-enter the keys from each plugin.

Stop using Clean my Mac - It breaks more than it fixes

Thanks for this information. Fortunately the issue seems to be limited to only 3 or 4 plugins.
