      Error 50040


      Hey guys,


      I have Filemaker Pro 9 for Windows XP.


      I turned my computer on today and it came up with Error 50040 "An activation problem has occured".


      It has been activated when bought and it is a legit copy.


      Has anyone experienced this and how can it be solved?

          Thank you for your post.


          From Knowledge Base Article #6794:


          "Due to changes on your computer, your activation must be repaired.  The error is displayed when you have reached the maximum number of allocated repairs.


          A repair could b triggered by various factors such as reformatting or reinstalling the OS on your hard drive.  It is strongly advised that you deactivate your existing software by selecting "Help > Deactivate" prior to making changes to your computer."
