Happy Easter all,

 

Sadly, my laptop becam infected with a virus and I needed to reformat the hard drive in order to clear it.

 

I have Gear Box re-installed with the basic package, but I purchased the Gold bundle and cannot get it to reload. I've run the license manager, and can see the bundle; but I cannot get it to display in the Gearbox software.

 

I checked my account and the device ESN (and computer serial #) is very different from that displayed in license manager and that on my account. Could this be the issue? If so, how can I get the License manager to reflect the correct info?

 

I've reinstalled the software a few times to no avail.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Richard

in the license manager, did you authorize the device and not the computer?

authorizing the computer, is really only useful for pod farm 2.5X+ and newer (and a standalone license at that really)

Hi TheRealZap,

 

In the License manager, both the PC and device are authorized.

 

Are you suggesting that I de-authorize the PC?

 

Thanks!

No, the PC authorization is fine... makes no difference if its authorized or not with gearbox.. which is of course no longer supported...

have you tried pod farm 1.x its a free upgrade... podfarm 2.x you'd have to pay for though....

Will the upgrade to pod farm 1 allow me to continue to use my tone port di and will my gold bundle be transferable?

 

Thanks.

Yes, you will have a more modern interface... same tones, and fully compatible with previous tones...

the "gold bundle" translates into a "platinum bundle" same thing... they just renamed it for pod farm... but yes,., all unlocked.

Hello again,

 

Thanks for your help today.

 

So I'm clear: Pod Farm is the new Gear Box, and work with vista? My Tone Port DI will still work?

 

I'll need to download a 1.xx version? How will I get the platinum bundle?

 

Thanks very much.

yes you are clear... platinum and gold are both just bundled license packages and only unlock the features... so just use the license manager.

won't matter.

Ok, I'll give this a try. Should I uninstall the gearbox software, or will this not matter?

Hi,

 

I installed Pod Farm and it looks like everything is back to normal, with quite a few extras to boot.

 

Thanks so much for your help. Much appreciated.

 

Take care,

 

Richard
