    I purchased 3D Flag for AE earlier today. I received my temporary authorization code promptly, and after following the installation instructions, I entered the code as prompted.

    When I tried using 3D Flag, I was immediately alerted again that the temporary code was only good for 30 days. Fair enough. However, if I try to render or preview my comp, I am inundated with prompts once again alerting me that i have only 30 days to register my product. I have already applied for a permanent code, but I was under the impression that I can actually use this software for 30 days.

    Each time I try to preview or render, the software puts a prompt behind the UI, and clicking on it does nothing. I have to force quit the software. Has anyone else had this problem? It’s very frustrating.

    Version 1.5.0 on OSX 10.5.4, AE CS3

    Heard back from Customer support. Apparently, this happens when your OSX account does not have permission to write to root/Library/Preferences

    They also sent me the Permanent Key, so I haven’t checked this to see if it worked, but I’m puttin’ it out there. the Permanent Key stopped the madness.

    For some reason, the plugin checks for a permanent key frequently. Once a session, or once every 24 hours would seem to be enough, but I guess they’re afraid someone is going to pull something sneaky.
