Description Gonzalo Paniagua Javier 2011-08-26 14:46:14 UTC
Trying to activate MT 4.1.1 on a machine without a previous MT install fails with 'Unknown error. Contact support'.

'netstat' does not show any sign of a connection to the activation server being made.

After 'killing' monodevelop and the windows that was prompting for the activation, I got the 'index 17' message.

Alex, that's fixed, right ?
Comment 4 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-08-29 16:39:35 UTC
We now know what the problem was, it was caused by the installer shipping with a copy of Mono instead of a symlink, causing a dependency on Mono 2.10.4 that might not be available on the user's system.

Alex is working on fixing this issue.   Please close when done.
