Delphi XE2: spontaneous Product or License Validation Error | General

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/24

Every once in a while an AV in Delphi manifests itself in a very odd way.

Usually it is refactoring, code completion or any of the ‘insight’ features doing odd things.

This time, it got me into a Product or License Validation Error | General:

Product or License Validation Error

Your Embarcadero product or license can’t be validated.

If you see this page when you’re using a valid license and official version of the software, please submit an installation support case for further assistance.

If you need a trial license and official trial software download, visit our Trial Downloads page.

To purchase a product license and receive a certified download, please see our How to Buy page.

Too bad the error hard-quits Delphi, thereby loosing all your work since the last save. Even more reason to safe often.

None of the reasons mentioned in Starting Delphi or C++ Builder results in Product or License Validation Error applied.

Restarting Delphi XE2 solved the problem.

Enable Remote Desktop Connection on Vista Home Premium | frans goes blog.

Great as it has steps both for Windows Vista SP1 and SP2, and steps for Vista RTM.
