Product Unauthorised (Where is my serial number for T:ANE?)
Posted by N3V Games (Paul) on 03 August 2015 04:43 PM
When you download T:ANE from MyTrainz or SimulatorCentral, there is no serial number required. Instead, T:ANE uses your MyTrainz Username to authenticate that you own the product.
Note: Box versions ordered from SimulatorCentral do require a Product Key which is included with your DVD.
If you ordered via Simulator Central, then your username will be the username associated with the account that ordered the product (so please check all accounts if you have more than one).
If you pledged via Kickstarter, then the username you provided in the reward survey is the username that has been authorised.
If you get an “unauthorised” error when starting the game, it means that you are either using the wrong username or possibly there has been a processing error in issuing access to your username.
Running as Administrator
Locate TANE.exe in your TANE install folder (default path is C:\Program Files\N3V Games\Trainz A New Era)
