      My serial number is: 8E20-2D3D-0C62-006F

      Could you please advise?

      Hi Patrickw,

      Thanks for your post.

      I was wondering if the message is “Educational restriction failed (Requested non-educational, license requested is educational)”. If so, it is most commonly due to an installation error where you may have run the “Network” option instead of “Standalone / Educational (Run with a local standalone database)”.

      Firstly, completely uninstall iTWO 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 iTWO costX with the “Standalone / Educational (Run with a local standalone database)” option, which appears during the installation process.

      If not, please provide the whole message of the error.

      Hope this helps!
