License certificate error codes
The following are common certificate error codes:
|0x80090005||Bad data. In all likelihood, you are trying to use an ExpertInstall 3.x, Installer 5.x, or InstallMate 7.x certificate in InstallMate 9.|
|0x8009000A||Invalid type specified. This is caused by missing or incomplete cryptographic support on your computer. You must either update your Windows installation, or switch to a different computer with a more up to date Windows version.|
|0x8009000F||Object already exists. This generally indicates a problem with the Windows cryptographic state on your computer. Try logging in to Windows with a different user account and register the software under that account. (Software registration is done on a per-user basis; you must use the software under the same account(s) that you used for registration.)|
|0xEBAD8000||General error. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter this.|
|0xEBAD8001||Invalid license type. The certificate is not an InstallMate certificate.|

- Error code; see table above.
This message usually indicates a problem with the copy & paste operation that you used to copy the registration certificate into the License registration dialog. For a valid certificate, you must copy all lines, starting with -----BEGIN TARMA CERTIFICATE----- and ending with -----END TARMA CERTIFICATE-----. You may include more lines, but not less.
Check the human-readable information from the certificate to make sure that it is intended for the current version of InstallMate. If so, then try to copy and paste the registration certificate again, making sure that you include the entire certificate. If it still fails, then please contact our technical support staff, quoting the error code from the message.
