I get an 'Invalid License' error message when starting Komodo. Why?


Ensure that the version of Komodo you have downloaded and installed matches the license you have purchased (i.e. Komodo Personal vs. Komodo Pro -- the licenses are not interchangable).

You can check the version of the the installed ActiveState license here:

Windows XP:

%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\ActiveState\ActiveState.lic

Windows 7:




Look for the line that says "Komodo". Immediately following the version number will be either Personal or Professional. Whichever it is is the version of Komodo you should install. If you have the appropriate license installed, try removing the license file (specified above) and reinstalling the license.

Installers for all versions of Komodo (including older releases) can be downloaded from:

Are you trying to install the license as the user who will be using Komodo? A
common problem is installing the license as root, which will not work -- the
license has to be installed as the user who will be using Komodo.

1. delete the file 'ActiveState.lic' from the path:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\ActiveState\
2. install your license, and then try running Komodo.
