Uninstall the package completely and after removal reboot the computer and then try reinstalling it back.

your windows 10 is 32 bit or 64 bit?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am running 32 bit.
I suspect that this problem is because we have loaded onto 2 computers in our house so that we can play multiplay on a LAN connection. I merely want to remove the block which is not allowing the second activation.
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 month ago.

if the software is bought for a single computer with single license then it will not work on the other computer.

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 month ago.

you can purchase license for the second computer and then it should work. Is it working fine on the first computer?
