Error when activating JNews Theme

We have unlimited access to Envato Elements. We downloaded JNews Theme from that. Uploaded it on the website

For activating - created token key - given proper permissions - but still it is showing the error.

“Failed to validate license, please check if required access is granted when token created, also please check to make sure if your account already bought the item”

Tried this multiple times - even tried by giving all the permission. But nothing works. Please help!

Elements downloads do not come with purchase codes/access to API tokens because they do not come with support or updates in the way that themeforest items do.

You won’t be able to “activate” or connect the theme that way without buying the full copy

But can I use it completely? the full version?

The elements version is the full theme, just without the premium features like auto updates, stock content (some themes) and future updates.

As long as you abide by Elements licensing then it’s fine.

The difference with full copies is that you get lifetime updates, 6 months support etc.
