I accidentally set my calendar forward a month, and I used Pads Logic and Layout while the date was set forward. I went home for the night and windows must have done an update overnight and reset the clock to the correct date. When I returned in the morning and tried to open Pads layout, I got this error
The system date/time appears to have been set back. Cannot continue.
Please correct the system date/time and restart the application.
I then click OK and get this error.
Security system wasn't properly initialized: License request for pwrshell feature failed. The program will run in Demo mode.
Pads will then open in Demo mode. If I reset system clock to be a month ahead again then everything works fine. However windows updates the time every 15 minutes which causes PADS to crash, and I lose all my work.
I assume this is a security feature that prevents people from setting their system clocks back a few months or years and getting extra time with their license. I have 9 years left on my license so that is not the case here.
How can I get PADS to synch up with the real clock, so it will use the actual date instead of a month in the future?
I am using PADS 2007.4 running on windows XP.
