Hi, We're having licensing issues with our render farm.

We have some CS6 After Effects seats on Mac OSX. We also have a 16 blade render farm on Windows 7.

We installed 'render-only' copies of AFX on the blades, which worked.
Except now we're being told that the trials have expired for the render-only software.

We've tried adding the text file, as per this thread.

But it doesn't work.

It just says the trial has expired.

We tried re-installing the software. But this doesn't work either.
Assuming that the trial version (which we didn't install) does something to the registry on the PC? Puts a file on there stopping you from re-installing?
Not a PC user so no idea how to do this.

Don't know if it's because our non-farm licenses are Mac?
Anyone had any experience of this?
