Error: Invalid registration key
 
SQL*XL user Prabir asked the following question.
 
Question:
I am reinstalling SQL*XL and I am having a same problem with the invalid registration key message. I start SQL*XL for the first time and it asks for the the registration key. I open the registration key file you sent in notepad, select all and use copy and paste to put it into the registration manager. SQL*XL claims the registration key is invalid.
 
Answer:
I noticed your registration key file contains a few extra lines below the registration key itself. When you select all the text in notepad you also select these empty lines and that caused the error. Be sure only select the first line and not any empty lines.
 
Mixup of activation and registration keys:
When entering the activation key in the registration key field or the other way around will also result in the invlid key error message.  
The activation key is for evaluation purposes only. The registration key is what you receive after you purchased the software.

Note that this problem is fixed in SQL*XL 4.2. Blanks are not taken into consideration when validating the registration key.

Question:
Entering the registration key, SQL*XL says: Invalid Registration Code
 
Answer:
Please check the software title in the registration manager. Did you install the correct product? A registration code or registration key is tied to a particular software title. So a registration key for SQL*XL Universal will not work for SQL*XL Standard.

When entering the key below, but I get the error message - 'Invalid
registration key'. Could you to reactivate this key please?

 
Please check the software title in the registration manager to check that you obtained a key for the correct software title.
 
Usually when this happens the standard version was installed instead of the universal version. Please check the software title in the registration manager and please let me know whether it is Universal or Standard so I can advice further.
