the cards authorization clock has gotten out of sync with your systems clock, youll probably need to email UA for a reg fix.

seemed like this started happening to certain people around 3.8-3.9 and it crops up on new releases. hasn't happened here yet.

Got a reply and fixed straight away.

Must say that UA offer an excellent support service!



Sadly, left this world before his time.

I've just installed 4.2 and the RE-201 has come up as demo expired already.

Same here. the fix didn't do anything though, nor did uninstalling/rebooting.
The fix didn't work here either. We'll see what Brett will come up with on Monday.


The Space Echo demo is the first one that isn’t pre-expired for me in many moons. I don’t know why this one worked. I’ve always suspected it’s had something to do with having a dual-boot system, and the two partitions both having UAD-1 drivers installed. I’m using a new system now, but it’s still dual-boot, so who knows…

Emailed them on Saturday night with the same problem, no reply yet... :roll:
Luckily the knobs on the demo are operational, lacks simply the sound! :lol:
