Sorry to hear this... Unfortunately you are on the right track. Due to the program being uninstalled on that particular computer, and the information you may have seen about the program no longer being able to be activated, due to licensing issues that were beyond our control with the server that they were run on, MediaShout 5 won't be able to be activated on that computer again. This change instated on January 15th of this year, and we have been sending emails regarding this, since October of last year. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
That being said, if you were at all interested you could call 615-983-5900 for further information on where to go from here. We have a discounted price for users moving from Version 5 to Version 6 that may interest you as well. Once again I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we would love to hear from you soon!
Thanks and God Bless.
