Possible Reason (2) :

Your total account books registered in License have exceeded the maximum account book limits.


Solution (2) :

At AutoCount Server Monitor > License Setting > View Product ID > Basic, user can see the summary info of all databases or account books that were registered under this product ID. In the beginning the number of Free Account Book should be the same as Total Account Book (Default Account Book + Add On account book), but the number of Free Account Book will be reduced after registration of each account book.

When you see Free Account Book shows negative value, it means you have registered more than allowable account books, and all registered account books will be returned to trial version with 500 transaction limit when log in.

You may contact your AutoCount Authorized Dealers to assist you in purchase Add On account book or you need to deregister some of the account books in the license.


To deregister,


1) Highlight the databases or account books that wish to deregister and click on Deregister. Then click on Yes to confirm to deregister the database.
