InstallShield 2008 license not working after virtualization

Hi all,


after I converted physical server that was using InstallShield 2008 license (I have the license key), I'm unable to use it. When I tried to open IS2008, I got message that license was corrupted and IS2008 tried to auto-repair it, however, it couldn't connect to the activation online server. I tried offline activation as well, but I wasn't able to activate it that way either.


Does anyone have any idea how to activate this license? The fact is that physical server is going away and we have to run it as a virtual server now.

Hi Damir,

Thank you for contacting Revenera Support.

InstallShield 2008 has reached its end-of-life and I'm sorry, there is no support available for this product.

We recommend you try our latest version of InstallShield, which is version 2022 and check if it meets your requirement. You can download our trial software from below link:
