My Switch Pro 3 has just turned into a beta version!!

Hi Guys,


Woke up this morning and Switch is reporting my beta has expired. Did all the usual things. Restarted the machine. Re-downloaded the version from the site.

Alas nothing. You also can't get into it at all to report a problem.

We are on Yosemite any thoughts?

  • Were you a beta tester with a timed activation code?
    If you have a paid pro license please go to Switch Preferences, License and re-enter your serial number and tell me what happens.

    Sorry but I'm not sure what you mean.  Licensed, unlicensed, beta should have

  • Hi Guys,


    I can't get that far.

    Beta expired sign comes up and kicks me out.

    Never was or have been a beta tester.

    Just upgraded from V2 Pro about a month ago.

  • You're not alone. We have 7 Pro licenses that just stopped working, not able to open the application at all.

    Contacted my sales rep, still no answer. If re-installing is the solution, how will it work with the licenses since we can't de-activate the now not working copies?

  • Have walked into the same situation. Got 7 licensed applications all showing the same error.

    When the application starts the below window appears and can't be progressed from. We have tried reinstalling with no luck.

  • Hi All,

    I have looked for the license file with no luck.

    The advice I got from Telestream this morning was to start the application with the shift key depressed.


    This allows you to select removal of preferences but it does seem to help on a Mac. Maybe its different on a PC.

  • On Windows search for Switch and look for .xml files and delete those.
