    It looks like your license is on hold. I personally can't tell you why that would be, usually, it's because of unusual activity or license violations (like if you bought the booth with someone else Sparkbooth key etc...)

    John will be here in a couple of hours with more information.

    BTW, you could buy a Sparkbooth 6 license to get through your event and if this all turns out to be a misunderstanding then John will refund your purchase.

    Ok please help me asap. I want to use it for a photo emailing kiosk. I am currently manually emailing the photos via gmail.
    The credit card I am carrying with me atm isn't allowing international transactions. Currently in Sri lanka.
    Can't think of a way that I could have misused the key because I have purchased it myself and only used it on my laptops. We do change it every now and then incase we need to install it on a machine that has a touch screen. We haven't sold or let anyone else use the key.

    I have assigned the issue to the Sparkbooth author. He is on Califonia time (currently 7:35am there)

    Your license has been flagged for too many activations. Are you selling
    Sparkbooth installations?

    No I am not . I assure you. I purchased Sparkbooth 6 to deal with this emergency. I hope you can arrange a refund as soon we sort this out.

    I own about 4-5 laptops . Some has touch screens . I switch my installations once in a while. You can check the machine ids if it shows you any of that information. It’s the same machines that we keep activating in. I didn’t know there was a limitation in the times that we can activate.

    My business is Photobooths. Our website is we do instant printing as a business. We do not sell the software. I don’t see the point as it’s readily available on your website. I do promote the software when I meet my friends from the same industry. I hope you can help me out here. Thanks
