Scrivener Crashing and Unusable HELP


I am on a serious deadline and Scrivener has become unusable.

Out the blue, whenever I open the software, I get the message, “Could not establish connection to license server. Please try again later” and then it crashes.

Things I’ve tried:

  • Uninstalling and reinstalling the program

  • Disabling anti-virus software

  • Whitelisting Scrivener on Anti-virus software

  • Disabling automatic syncing

  • Opening the app “as administrator”

It’s been a few days of me trying to get the software to work. I’ve seen a few posts about this issue with no solution whatsoever?

I’ve been using Scrivener since 2012 and never had issues like this before, so this is sad. If it’s time for me to throw it the towel and move on to a new writing software, can anyone offer me advice on how to extract my manuscript into a Word file, seeing as the app won’t stay open long enough for me to do a compile?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi AnnC. I just replied to your help ticket via the TenderApp help-desk tools.

I’ll use that ticket for further troubleshooting.
