Upgrading to 4.0 Activate New Products Utility Fails to Run

Recommended Posts

Need to enter my license key to complete the 4.0 upgrade.  Activate New Products utility will not run.  I get an unkown application warning message and I click OK to run it anyway and it flashes and closes.  Anyone have a solution?

PS:  I followed this procedure for CMFB and had no issues.

I suggest temporarily turning off/disabling your security software and see if the activation utility will run properly after that. Once you can activate the 4.0 Upgrade (and assuming nothing else needs to be activated), run the game and make sure it launches and has access to all of the content/modules it previously did. Close up CMBN and then re-enable your security software and run CMBN again (it should typically work). If you run into an error again, you may want to add an exception/'white list' entry in your security software. Since the CMBN executable is now different, some security programs may no longer 'recognize' it and either attempt to quarantine it or interfere with its operation.
