Hello AAA,

I am in an awkward situation for my license of FBRT. When I purchased the license, I soon upgraded my workstation to a new build. I did transfer my license to the newer system but, unfortunately that is now not in use. I am still troubleshooting what component became defective. It is likely my motherboard or m.2 drive after extensive testing. I have already had to RMA the motherboard, because it was defective. This 2nd mobo may be the same case, again... Essentially, I have given up on trying to fix the newer system that last had the registered license of FBRT. I was unable to deactivate the license properly in my haste to troubleshoot along with trying to repair and reinstall my OS of Windows 10. Because of this, I can not register FBRT on my older workstation. I can't afford to try and fix the issue due to the tight deadlines in my freelance work. I am trying to get my license to be registered on an older workstation that I am currently using. I honestly don't have the time to fix my newer workstation in my current situation with work and tight budget. My number of allowed "changes" has dwindled to 1 last change but I cannot even use it as the last registered license was on the newer workstation which currently has an OS that cannot boot. I tried repairing and reinstalling my OS multiple times and, again, I had to move back to my older workstation.

I am a little frustrated because I purchased the license many months ago BUT I never used it except for the week I bought the license. My freelance animation work schedule became incredibly busy after I bought FBRT. I have yet to use FBRT, since then. I animate for work more than I have time to render in my own spare time. I spent 400 dollars and now because of my unfortunate hardware and OS problems, I still cannot access my copy of FBRT due to the "change" limits and restrictions. I understand that the reason for limited changes is to counter piracy but given my own situation, that is hardly the case for me. I am just trying to have a stable and reliable workstation and it is only now that I have some free time to render with FBRT for personal use, not even for commercial use.

May I have more "changes" added to my account? I am hesitant on asking for only one change. I would rather have a handful of changes because of the issues I have had with Windows 10 breaking. In the span of 1 year, I have had to repair and reinstall Windows 10 SIX times, that is not an exaggeration. I don't want to have to message here every time Windows breaks.

I really enjoy using FBRT as my go-to GPU render when I get have the time to use it. It's changed and helped my workflow when I use it.
Any help for this is appreciated.

I see you have still one available change.
If you are not able to release your old license, try offline activation.
BTW, when you move to older workstation - where FurryBall already was - it's NOT count like a change of course...

Thank you for contacting us.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All the Best
