I recently purchased a windows app from Codecanyon AIO Web Scraper. I activated the same on 3 virtual machines (as permitted by the author through their licensing terms.
However, after I formatted my computer and reinstalled all the three virtual machines, I installed the software and tried to enter the license key which now says that the “license is invalid”.
After this incident, I contacted the author and got to know that the license was disposable. I can only activate it 3 times. After that the license will not exist.
I am really disappointed to know that there is no license reset or transfer option provided by the author and I going to lose my 100s of dollars.
Due to the nature of the app (which is a software that runs on windows platform), I rented a VPS to run it and now I had to change the VPS vendor and required to reset/transfer the license, which is impossible due to the current licensing mechanism provided by the author.
This type of license cannot be categorized as a “lifetime license” because the license will stop working as an end user may have to change platforms, operating systems during upgrade/downgrade or even the devices. There is no way to revoke access from the previous machine and transfer it to a new machine.
I need assistance from Codecanyon team to intervene and help me recover the so called “lifetime license” I purchased from the author. I really don’t want to lose my money and feel “scammed” by someone using such tactics.
