General Activation Error (-12)
I have received a new company PC.
Using the existing CDs, we first installed Pro 7 complete and tested - worked fine. Then installed the Pro 9 upgrade. When starting we get "A general activation error has occured (-12)". I did not find this error in a search.
Never had a problem when this was installed originally several years ago on my old PC.
Running Windows XP Professional Version 5.1 Service Pack 3 on old PC, Service Pack 2 on new PC.
