Hi There - Having a license activation issue. I'm actively using Nitro on my computer and have 2 total licenses.  Trying to activate the 2nd license that's available but getting an error msg that the serial number doesn't exist.  When i follow the license troubleshooting on Nitro's website, it pulls up the serial number: Status-Active, Number of Activations--0,  Number of Activations Allowed-2.  I'm interpreting that as NEITHER of my 2 licenses are in use but I'm actively using Nitro so...

Hello @Meena Na,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

Please be informed that 'The serial number entered does not exist' means the serial number you are trying to activate is for a different version of Nitro Pro. Looks like we need to uninstall the current version of Nitro Pro on your computer and install Nitro Pro 12. We then activate it using your serial number. Kindly follow these steps:
 
1. Uninstall Nitro Pro from your computer by going to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features then reboot the machine.

2. Please clear all your downloads folder or delete all downloaded Nitro installers. This step is important because we noticed that if you are saving all the installers and you download them in the same folder (like the downloads folder), the EXE can pick up any MSI installer in that folder and you may pick-up one of the older builds instead of the newly downloaded package.

3. Download your Nitro Pro 12.16 using these offline link/s:

x32 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_12163574/en/retail/nitro_pro12_ba_x86.msi 
x64 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_12163574/en/retail/nitro_pro12_ba_x64.msi

To know if you have 32-bit or 64-bit, please refer to this article: 
https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/15056/windows-32-64-bit-faq

4. After installation, you can activate by opening Nitro Pro, clicking on the Help tab > About Nitro Pro > Activation and entering your serial number.

Thank you for choosing Nitro and I hope this helps.

Hello.  I have 2 Nitro Pro 10 licences but I'm not sure why it won't allow me to activate Nitro.  I tried to deactivate one of the two, but I still get the error to go back and check the licence (which would go back to deactivating 0 active).  Help.

Hello @Max Phelps,

Thanks for the private message.

Before continuing, please be aware that Nitro Pro 11 or older are already discontinued as documented in our Sunset Policy: https://www.gonitro.com/support/sunset-policy . With that, support for the discontinued versions are no longer available.  

If you are interested in upgrading your license to Nitro Pro 13 with a discounted rate, kindly access our Upgrade Portal and enter your Nitro Pro 11 serial numbers: https://www.gonitro.com/pro/upgrade 

You should then receive an email confirmation with a new serial number to activate Nitro Pro 13 and to know more about some enhancements and fixes with Nitro Pro 13, please visit our Release Notes page https://www.gonitro.com/nps/product-details/release-notes 

In addition to that and many other feature improvements, version 13 also contains some important security vulnerabilities fixes that you might want to consider when deciding whether to upgrade to it or not. You can find out more about these fixes here:  https://www.gonitro.com/nps/security/updates

However if you prefer working with an older version and as a courtesy, I just made an adjustment on your licenses, so you can now activate your copy of Nitro Pro by going to Help tab > About Nitro Pro > Activate, entering your serial number and clicking Activate.

Thank you for choosing Nitro and I hope this helps.

Thank you for checking on this.  I prefer to use the older version.  However, I still encounter the same error when I try to reactivate:

The serial number entered does not exist.

Click back and make sure you have entered the serial number correctly.

Appreciate the help, mate.
