Enter license key on Headless server

Post by lightspear28 » Thu Sep 03, 2015 6:45 pm

I recently purchased a license key for MakeMKV and attempted to enter it into my build on my Ubuntu 14.04 server. I followed this method: http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6195

Unfortunately MakeMKV doesn't seem to recognize the key code as it still gives me the "Evaluation period has expired, shareware functionality unavailable." message when I try to backup my Blu Ray disks.

I am running a v1.9.5 linux(x64-release) build of MakeMKV. The only difference between the above linked method and what I did was the file name of the settings file being: "update.conf". I figured that this was just due to my build being newer.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Are you sure you modified the file under the correct user?
