Description Chris Schamper 2011-10-20 11:25:14 UTC
Monodroid in Monodevelop reverts to demo mode upon reboot. Activation code no longer activates product.

I have the same issue. After a reboot the activation of Mono Android is no longer valid and I have to reactivate the product. 

This is under monodeveloper 2.8.2
Comment 2 Chris Schamper 2011-11-17 17:09:01 UTC
In my case, this was caused by a soft NIC's MAC address resetting on each reboot.

A change in a NIC's MAC address caused the validation to reset.

We think we've mitigated this in 2.0. Please let us know if it continues to persist after the 2.0 release.

No response, this should be fixed.

If you still experience this, please reopen!
