How do I uninstall Ascendis v3 from a crashed computer that is unbootable? I I have installed Ascendis v3 on the new replacement computer. When I input the activation code, it says the activation code is in use on another computer, which is the crashed one. (I guess the uninstall would go online and do the required deactivation.) Thanks.

Sorry to hear of your computer problem. I made a change to your license so you can activate on the new computer. Can you please try again?

Finest regards,

Done. That's great. Disregard my email asking the same question. Thanks Bill!

Hi again Bill,
Now, for some reason Ascendis reverts back to version 2 on close & restart. At that point, I have to reinstall v3. The program does remember its v3 activation code so that the code need not be re-input. But the v3 doesn't hold.

Also, I want to download the accumulated calls from the Whozz Calling device but have purposely held off physically connecting the WC yet, realizing that I can't do the download reliably with version 2 which lacked the features that you developed in version 3 for downloading reliably from the WC.

Is it possible that the presence of new hardware drivers for a USB-serial adapter I installed today could have messed things up? I honestly can't remember if I had this problem (of v3 not holding) before today...could be just a coincidence.

The driver install added a COM8 port. Ascendis does recognize the new COM8. So no problem there, I don't think.

Thanks!

It sounds like Ascendis Caller ID version 2 is still installed and is set to run on login. You should start version 2 and disable "Start automatically when I log in to Windows" in the Options window. Click "OK" to save the change and close the Options window. Then exit version 2 by selecting "Exit" on the "File" menu.

Once version 2 is stopped, start version 3. You should probably double-check that "Start automatically when I log in to Windows" in the Options window is enabled on version 3.

You can uninstall Ascendis Caller ID version 2, but it might be good to keep it until version 3 is running as desired.

You can enable this in the Options window, Devices page, Whozz Calling? sub-page, in the "Options" drop-down.

I don't think so. I think that's just a coincidence.

Thanks Bill.

As it turns out, it was the QuickLaunch shortcut to Ascendis Caller ID that was getting me into trouble. I had it still pointing to version 2 instead of version 3.

So, while version 3 would load on Windows startup, after that if I quit the program then reloaded it with QuickLaunch (which I often did while getting it set up), version 2 would "mysteriously" come back.

Why I overlooked such a simple thing, I don't know!

Kind regards.

Hi Bill,

Now 7 months later, I've installed the program on (yet another) new computer. (This time, unlike before, the 'old' computer is a functioning one.)

I'd like to complete the move: deactivate on the old, activate on the new.

I could have sworn there was a deactivation feature but now cannot find it- is there one?

Thanks!

Hi Deb,

There is no command to deactivate, but if you uninstall it from the old computer, it will deactivate. Before doing this, please make sure your data is transferred to the new computer and that Ascendis Caller ID is running properly on the new computer. You can use Ascendis Caller ID in trial mode for 30 days to accomplish this.

Thanks Bill.
This will be a client-server setup, therefore an uninstall on the old computer would defeat that. (The new computer is the server, in 30-day eval. mode. The old computer, with Ascendis already on it, will become a client.)

I was hoping for a way to accomplish this type of change automatically (with activate/deactivate commands) but it may not be doable automatically since there is no deactivate command. I'm not sure how others do this. Thanks for the help.
Deb

Sorry, Deb. An uninstall followed by install is the normal way to handle this. Just make sure you have a copy of the installer handy (you can download the latest version from http://ascendis.com/callerid/CallerID_Beta_Setup.exe) and that you tell the uninstaller to keep your data. Your settings will be kept, and after reinstall you can activate as client using your existing activation code. Client activation can be done even if the server is activated using the same code -- each activation code allows one server and unlimited clients.

As you would otherwise, you will have to change the settings in the client to get caller information from the server. This is done in the Options window, Network page.
