Thank you for your post.


The error prompt “Educational restriction failed (Requested non-educational, license requested is educational)” is most commonly due to an installation error where you may have ran the “Network” option instead of “Standalone / Educational (Run with a local standalone database)”. Firstly, completely uninstall CostX from your current computer, including selecting ‘No’ when asked if you wish to keep the database. Then apply for a new serial. Finally reinstall CostX with the “Standalone / Educational (Run with a local standalone database)” option, which appears during the installation process.

Hope this Helps!
