I need to use My MindManager 4.0 version. It used to work fine. Now when I open it it asks for a license key, which I own, and it will no longer accept it. ?! Can you help with a reinstall or license key technique to get it running? THanks.

Not for version 4.0.
Have you switched to a different OS version?
If so consider upgrading to vs 2020.
If not, what have you done before this suddenly came up? Software usually does not change behavior by itself.

Hello, I did indeed move to a new machine with Windows 10.  I thought the install had worked then I went to use if and found this block. I am all for 2020 but there are particular features and legacy functions and content I need to access with 4.0.  Any chance of getting my license key accepted? thanks,

Well for those functions I suggest you keep on using your old machine with the old OS etc. Vs 4.0 has maps in *. mmp file format that will never work with newer versions nor with the advanced facilities of Windows 10.

But .... since all mindmanager version are mostly upward compatible... what specific features and legacy functions you need????

The old machine has gone. THere must be an ability to open a window within Windows that uses earlier OS??  And my problem is in getting it to accept the license. THe program works OK in read only, in that it reads all my mmp files.
Regarding what features and functions, in general it is the freedom from being forced into one of the templates offered in the newer version... the ability to manipulate the mindmap aestetically and functionally was lost way back in version 6. Here's a few examples of how I have used it.....

Can't see anything that is not possible with 2020. Maybe the oldfashioned organic view, but you are using the tool as a professional for professional purpose, so that is a nobrainer.

The organic sculpted main branch view, with colors as below, I happen to cherish and my professional clients love it as well. Perhaps it is hard for your developers to do in the new versions and you have called it "old fashioned" and MM has removed it. Thus it is for this left behind professional. I gave you lots of advertising while I could.   

But can you respond to my last point. THe product works on my computer. I can see the MMPs read only. I need only get it to accept my paid up license key. Any help at all there?
Thanks.
John

Since I am not the developer, nor employed by Mindjet/Corel, I can't help you with this.

And again, you can create a map like yours easy with vs 2020.
