An error occurs "LicenseManager failed to perform codemeter ACT activation,"
while performing an "offline activation" per this article below, on the final step ("Activating a dongle at an offline computer," i.e. step 5 at bottom of article: "Browse to the WIBUCMRAU file and click "Open").
Possible Cause and Solution
Verify that the latest versions of License Manager and Codemeter are installed on both the offline and online computers. If a version mismatch is apparent, then install the latest versions and repeat all the steps for offline activation (i.e. total of twenty steps (20) need to be repeated).
An empty virtual CMStick made with an earlier version of License Manager may not work properly with a newer version of License Manager.
