We had the first clear night in weeks here in the UK, and according to tradition, it all went wrong big style with my observatory PC going bang (literally) when I plugged in my USB hub (which started smoking). I now have a nice laptop with no functioning USB ports!!
Anyway - I immediately went to Plan B, because luckily I have an old spare laptop which I’d rebuilt for exactly this eventuality. It had SGP 2.2 on it (I think) so I installed SGP 2.4 on it, registered it and away I went.
Unfortunately, I had to shut it down to allow some anti virus updates to install, and when I went back into SGP, it forced me to re-license the PC.
I’ve tried all sorts of things - but every time I fire up SGP, it forces re-registration. I had renamed the spare PC as “Spare” but it kept re-licensing it as its old name, so I’ve now renamed the PC back to match the computer name on SGP’s license management webpage…but it still makes me re-register every time I fire up SGP.
Any ideas on how to fix the problem please?
