After activating FotoStation 8.0, the following error message is shown:

FotoStation License error -5.png


You have likely used a FotoStation Pro or FotoStation Client product key to activate, while you are trying to start FotoStation 8.0, which is a different product.


Alternative 1: If you have a valid product key for FotoStation Pro 8.0 or Client 8.0, installers for these can be obtained on the FotoWare Customer Portal. If you do not have an account at yet, learn how to sign up and create one.

Alternative 2: If you have indeed purchased FotoStation 8.0, you need to use a valid FotoStation 8.0 product key to activate it.

Alternative 3: You have successfully activated FotoStation 8.0, but the version you are trying to run is FotoStation Pro or FotoStation Client. You need to download FotoStation 8.0 from, as FotoStation Pro and Client are not compatible with the key you have purchased.
