Just updated to Corona 8.  When I access 3ds MAX 2022 and switch to Corona, It shows that there is no license. Before I would get a license popup window that allowed me to activate my license. Now I select Activate License and when I try it crashes 3ds MAX. Thoughts?

Same problem here...
Uninstall procedere done as described in the troubleshooting, reinstalled everything.

The License Server is running, we can reach it via localhost:30304 and are able to sign in...

Nonetheless:
- extremely slow 3ds Max Startup after Corona 8 update (especially loading the ChaosScatterMax2019.dlt and ChaosMax2019.dlt)
- when 3ds is ready, switching the renderer to Corona also causes a freeze of 1-2 minutes
- when we try to start a rendering we get an error message that no license was found (-2)
- activating the license via the button in the render settings causes a crash

Win 10, latest Updates, 3ds Max 2019, Corona 8

I'm also facing Issues with Corona 8 and licensing Errors.

In my case I tried to open 3dsmax 2020 with corona8 (via multiloader Batch-File - setting "Load-Path" to corona 8 plugin) on a second machine accessing Chaos_License Server.

There is a 3dsmax2020 running on my Laptop accessing the 1 Corona License i got on my Chaos-License_Server on the network. All this runs fine.

But when i open 3dsmax with corona8 as described before and try to set the render to corona on an empty scene. I get following error and crash - after hitting the options.
I know it would be better to have 2 Licenses .... but that just happend to test various reallife situation, where you might open a scene, alter things and realize you need to swith the render-engine.

It definitely should not crash. Please contact us about this here: https://support.chaos.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
We may not be able to provide full licensing-related support over the forum (we may need some confidential info like the registered email address or order number).

Thanks in advance.
