I remember having problems like these. The first install was fine but 
for some reason when it came the time to renew the license I had to 
re-install the software to get rid of that message. I'm not sure if your 
problem is related though.

The best would be that you post your diagnose file. In hkey, under menu 
"View" and click "Diagnostic Information...".
