Had a big job to do/deliver today.
I’ve got the first part cutting when I notice the time on the laptop I’m using isn’t correct. The battery in the laptop is dead so it doesn’t keep time. I changed the time to the correct time.
Once the first part had finished cutting lightburn became unresponsive. I closed it and opened it again. The prompt window for the, “start trial version” or “enter key code” came up. So I re-entered my key code for lightburn.
Then I had a Lightburn dialogue box come up saying I’d tampered with the date/time and it wasn’t going to work.
This is obviously a feature to prevent people from rolling the date backwards so they can use the trial version for longer but it’s mean’t I’ve lost a day of production. Little bit frustrating as I’ve lost a day of work and I’ll be making delivery on Monday instead of today.
(The internet on the laptop decided to stop working today as well which mean’t I was unable to uninstall/reinstall Lightburn. So I’ve since spent the day formatting a desktop computer to replace the laptop so I don’t have the same issue again in the future.)
