All NI Products asking to Activate at launch

edited January 27 in Maschine

When I open Maschine 2, I get the below screen with my MK3 connected.

When I click on the activate button, Maschine closes and nothing happens. Maschine is showing as installed and active in Native Access.

Uninstalling and re-installing Maschine and Native Access does not rectify the issue.

I confirmed my maschine license is also active on the NI website.

This just started happening today.

This occurs in Standalone, VST3, and VST2.

    Updated the subject cause this is happening with every Native Instruments plugin I own now. Is there a download link to the older version of Native Access anywhere? I need to get some work done and my NI tickets are going unanswered.

    When I try to manually enter serial numbers in Native Access it just spins and then freezes before crashing. I see other posts of users not being able to access their purchases on here and Reddit, so guess I’m not the only one. Hope y’all get this fixed soon.

    I see that you were able to contact our support but managed to fix it by your own by modifying the Windows registry. You mention something in the original ticket, yet I can't see it. What did solve your issue in the end?

    When updating Native Access, there were duplicate entries in the registry. I uninstalled Native Access, then used a powershell script to search the registry and remove all Native Access Entries. Then I re-installed Native Access.
