-    * Unordered List ItemSelect the file in the Finder +
-    * Do "File->Get Info" or Command-I +
-    * In the section "Name & Extension",​ remove "''​.xml''",​ which should leave you with "''​.osclicense''"​ as the only extension. +

-Also, some mail servers((some versions of Microsoft Exchange are known to be affected)) corrupt ​the content ​of the fileIf you think you fall in this case and you have no other solution for getting ​the file another wayplease contact camille at osculator dot net.+??? I try to activate my license but I get the following error message: "​Maximum number ​of activations has been reached"​. What is going wrong?
