automatic re-activation failed notice still AND now Scrivener won't open!

Hi,
I downloaded and installed the apparent fix for the automatic re-activation failed notice, but it is still coming up, and now I cannot open Scrivener!!!
Help!
Thanks,
Skye

Gee whiz, Folks. Haven’t you gotten fed up with hearing about this and similar/related issues yet??
Surely someone holds the whip and has a grip on the correct end.

Thanks

Jim

I have this same problem too. Does the macOS version work at least? Maybe I can use the mac trial and export my work so that I can start using another program. At this point I’m giving up on Scrivener, I just want to get my work :frowning:
