Error Descriptions

Error numberDescription and Solution
Error 7

Description
There was a problem connecting to the CopyMinder website.

The error usually appears with a second number (the extended error), e.g. 7/12029. The extended error number is a Windows specific error number. A full list of these errors is provided by Microsoft here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/193625

Solution
Check your computer can access the internet ok, specifically http://primary.copyminder.com and http://secondary.copyminder.com. We also have http://www.copyminder.com and http://www.microcosm.co.uk as backup servers, but access to these shouldn't usually be required.

Specific Extended Errors

12029
This means a connection to our server could not be established. This can be due to the internet connection being down, or the presence of a web proxy on the network which is blocking access to our servers. In the latter case please ensure the proxy is either reconfigured to allow access or bypassed completely.

12168
This extended error has been seen to occur with the "Untangle" firewall product when it is configured to block direct connections by IP address. Untangle must be configured to allow direct connections by IP address.

Error 12

Description: Unable to access the Internet.


Solution: There are two possible causes of this error: failed proxy server authentication or blocking by a firewall.

Proxy Servers

Home users are unlikely to use proxy server authentication.

If you have a proxy server that requires authentication then CopyMinder will prompt you to enter the appropriate password. If you fail to provide the correct password, it will give this error.

Firewalls

Your machine probably includes one or more firewalls to prevent unwanted Internet access to/from your machine. Modern versions of Windows include a firewall, people install 3rd party firewalls (e.g. ZoneAlarm), routers and modems may also include firewalls. In most situations, these cause no problems for CopyMinder. However, if a firewall does block access to the Internet for CopyMinder, you will get this error.

If your Internet browser can access this web page from the machine giving this error then firewalls in hardware outside your PC (e.g. routers and modems) are not the cause of this error.

The Windows firewall that Microsoft provides has never been known to block CopyMinder.

Some third party firewalls have facilities to block access to certain web sites. The default settings for these are usually to allow all access unless you explicitly specify otherwise so they should only be a problem if you have instructed them not to allow access to this web site (www.copyminder.com). If you have any concerns about allowing access to this web site, please look at our Privacy Policy.

Some third party firewalls have facilities to block certain applications from accessing the Internet. These are the most likely cause of this error. If your Internet browser can access www.copyminder.com then you should check the firewall settings to ensure that the application you are running is in the list of permitted applications and not in the list of restricted applications.

You could confirm that a particular firewall is causing the problem by temporarily disabling the firewall. Remember to re-enable it afterwards.

Error 81

Description: .cm file not found.


Solution: Contact your software supplier. They need to make the installation program copy the .cm file into the correct folder.

Solution: If developing in Delphi, please check that you are using the correct object module. Some versions of Delphi require a Unicode file. cmd.obj is non-unicode, cmdu.obj is unicode

Where is the .cm file located

The <program name>.cm file can be in a number of possible locations.

From release 46 of the .cm file onwards, CopyMinder looks in the following locations for the .cm file: 

  1. If there is a <program name>.cm.ini file in the same folder as the protected program and it contains a Path variable, then it will look for the .cm file in that path.  
  2. If the API method of protection was used and the CM_SetPath function has been called then it will look in the specified path.
  3. It will look in ProgramPath, i.e. the path containing your protected program
  4. It will look in ProgramPathcm where ProgramPath is the path containing your protected program
  5. It will look in APPDATAdidProdCodecm where APPDATA is a variable specified in the Windows Environment, did is your unique CopyMinder Developer ID and ProdCode is the Product Code you specified for this product (e.g. C:Documents and SettingsUser1Application DataAABCcm).
  6. It will look in ALLUSERSPROFILEdidProdCodecm where ALLUSERSPROFILE is a variable specified in the Windows Environment, did is your unique CopyMinder Developer ID and ProdCode is the Product Code you specified for this product (e.g. C:ProgramDataAABCcm).

Prior to release 46 of the .cm file, CopyMinder looks in the following locations for the .cm file:

  1. If there is a <program name>.cm.ini file in the same folder as the protected program and it contains a Path variable, then it will look for the .cm file in that path.  
  2. If the API method of protection was used and the CM_SetPath function has been called then it will look in the specified path.
  3. It will look in APPDATAdidProdCodecm where APPDATA is a variable specified in the Windows Environment, did is your unique CopyMinder Developer ID and ProdCode is the Product Code you specified for this product (e.g. C:Documents and SettingsUser1Application DataAABCcm).
  4. It will look in ALLUSERSPROFILEdidProdCodecm where ALLUSERSPROFILE is a variable specified in the Windows Environment, did is your unique CopyMinder Developer ID and ProdCode is the Product Code you specified for this product (e.g. C:ProgramDataAABCcm).
  5. It will look in ProgramPath, i.e. the path containing your protected program
  6. It will look in ProgramPathcm where ProgramPath is the path containing your protected program

Description: Unable to write to the destination file.


Solution: The destination file is probably running or in use by another application. Close it!

Error A443

Error A443 means that the PE/COFF checksum of a file being shell protected could not be updated. We have had a single report of this happening when Avast anti-virus is in use, as it blocked the creation of the protected output file.

The solution is to re-configure the anti-virus software to stop this happening, for example by excluding the output directory from scanning.

Error A484

Description: User cancelled.

Error A485

Description: You have chosen to use the API method but the CopyMinder Object module (cm.obj) has not been linked into the program to be protected.


Solution: Consult the Linker for your programming language to see how to link in the appropriate CopyMinder .obj module. If you are protecting your program using cm.dll, remember to specify the name of the dll when adding protection rather than the .exe file.

Error A492

Description: Error downloading CMInstall.exe from the Copyminder website. 


Solution: Please ensure that you have a working internet connection.

Error 493

Description: CopyMinder.exe was unable to save CMInstall.exe in the 'Output pathname for protected program'  that you specified.

Error 508

Description:  CopyMinder was unable to create the <program name>.cm.dir directory.  This is probably due to the user not having sufficient access rights.  Please also see the important notes below for other possible causes.

Solution:  The best solution is to install using CMInstall which should sort out access rights. 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

(1) The anti-virus software "Threatfire" which is available standalone and as part of the PC-Tools suite will cause 508 errors if its service is running while a protection check is made.  The only solution at present is to disable the Threatfire service from Control Panel / Administrative tools.  Version 50 avoids this problem.  The normal automatic upgrade of the .cm file will not work as the error prevents the new .cm file from being saved. If the Threatfire service is disabled then the protected program will run correctly and can upgrade itself.

(2) This error can also occur if using Advanced Runtime Protection with the shell method on versions of the .cm file prior to 47.  In this case the user must be provided with a new copy of the protected program and .cm file using cm file version 47 or later.  The normal automatic upgrade of the .cm file will not work as the error prevents the new .cm file from being saved.

Error 509

Description: There is no description for this error.


Solution: Please contact Microcosm for assistance with this error.

Error 511

Description:  CopyMinder was not able to create a file in the .cm.dir directory.


Solution:

The most likely cause is that you do not have sufficient access rights to create the file.  If so, you need to change your access rights.

Alternatively, the directory may be corrupt.  Try running the Windows Chkdsk utility to check and repair any corruption.

Error 515

Description:  Computer hardware information changed


Solution: We have found that one possible cause of this is that a removeable network adapter (e.g USB wifi, PCMCIA / PC-card or tethered mobile phone) that was present when the software was installed has now been removed.

To avoid this error in future, activation should be done with any removeable network devices removed from the computer.  Other USB devices should not cause this error.  Also, please ensure that at least version 52 of the .cm file is in use.

If this is does not solve the problem, please contact Microcosm providing the .cm.log file for the affected installation.

Error 566

Description: Error automatically downloading new CopyMinder protection file.


Solution: Please check your Internet connection.

This error can also occur if all the following is true:
* Your existing .cm protection file is release 36 or earlier.
* Your program is protected to require release 37 or later.
* The .cm file has not been used before.


Ask your software supplier if this might be the case. In this case the software developer should supply a newer (v.37 or later) .cm file for the software so that installation and activation may proceed.

Solution: Disable or remove Bit Defender

Bit Defender 2012 injects javascript and css into webpages that are accessed, whether through a browser or directly by the CopyMinder protection check. This causes the structure of the page to be changed and consequently the download of the page containing the update version of the .cm file to fail when an automatic upgrade is attempted during a protection check.

If you wish to download and install the CopyMinder protection file manually, please go to the link below and follow the instructions:

Error 576

Description: Unable to decrypt activation code


Solution: If you are using the Manual Activation method, please check the activation code is correct.

If you are using not using the Manual Activation method, it could be because you are using a program protected with a very old version of CopyMinder.

Error 577

Description: There was an error setting the clock on the user's computer.  Either they specified a date earlier than 2003 or they do not have sufficient privileges to set the clock.


Solution: Try setting the clock on the computer using the normal Windows facilities.  Remember to set the time zone correctly.

Solution: Please contact Microcosm for assistance with this error.

Error 579

Description: This means that your computer's clock is out by more than an hour compared to our web server's.


Solution: Please check the time and date of your machine and adjust as necessary.

Please also check that the international time zone setting is correct.

Error 580

Description: The clock on your machine has gone backwards.


Solution: You should do one of the following:

1. If you have put your clock backwards, you should put it forward to the correct time.
2. If you have put it forwards just a bit and then back to the correct time, you should wait until time catches up.
3. You should re-install your application or replace the .cm file with the original copy.

Error 581

Description: The CopyMinder Network Path you specified either does not exist or you do not have sufficient access rights to it.


Solution: Please check that the CopyMinder Network Path exists. If it does then check that you have sufficient access rights to it. CopyMinder protected programs running over a network, require full read/write access to this directory. 

Alternatively, if the CopyMinder Network Path is on the local computer and stored in the .cm.ini file as a UNC type path (e.g. \machinedirectory) then the 581 error will be given if the LAN cable is unplugged, even though the path should resolve locally.  This is because Windows will not resolve UNC pathnames if the computer is not connected to the network so cannot access files this way without a working network connection.

Error 606

Description: Unable to delete file in .cm.dir/dat


Solution:  This error means CopyMinder was unable to delete a file in the <program name>.cm.dir/dat directory. The usual reason is to do with file access rights.

The most likely cause of this is that they are using multiple user logins, probably under Vista.  Using CMInstall.exe should solve any problems to do with access rights.

Alternatively, their directory could have become corrupt.  They should run the Windows Chkdsk utility to detect/repair any problem.

 

 

Error 607

Description: CopyMinder was unable to delete the "[programname].cm.dirdat" directory.


Solution: Please check that you have the appropriate access rights.

If you get this error and you have full access rights to this directory, please list all the files in that directory (including ones with the Hidden attribute set) and send it to Microcosm.

Error 611

Description:  Unable to create a directory.


Solution: Error 611 means we could not create  a sub-directory off the directory containing the .cm file.  This is probably to do with access rights.

If you are using Vista, please read www.copyminder.com/vista.php.
 
The best solution is to use CMInstall.exe (see the 'Distributing Your Software' chapter in the manual).
 
If you still are unable to resolve the problem, please send the cm.log file.

Error 637

Description:

Timeout when trying to perform a protection check from a network client - the CopyMinder Network Server failed to respond.


Solution:

Ask your Network Administrator to check that the CopyMinder Network Server is running on a machine on your network.
The CopyMinderNetworkPath specified in the <PROGRAMNAME>.cm.ini file should be either:
a) An IP address and port (eg, 192.168.1.2:1234) corresponding to the machine running CMServer.exe, or
b) A path corresponding to the shared directory in which CMNet.exe looks for files (this path should correspond to the same location as the path given in the <PROGRAMNAME>.cm.ini file in the same directory as CMNet.exe on the server).

The .cm.log file on the server may reveal why the server is failing to respond.

If the problem persists please contact your software supplier.

 

Error 639

Description: Unable to create a file in the CopyMinder Network Path that you specified.


Solution: Make sure that CMNet is running on the CopyMinder network server.

Make sure that the CopyMinder Network Path you specified for the client machine matches that specified for the CopyMinder network server. You can check this by looking in the .cm.ini files of both computers.

Ensure that both computers have full access rights to the specified CopyMinder Network Path.

If there is a <program name>.cm.tmp file present in the CopyMinder Network Path at the time that this error occurs, it may be that CMNet cannot overwrite it. Manually delete the file and try again.

Error 641

Description: You have reached the limit on the maximum number of simultaneous users of this program


Solution: Contact your supplier and request an increase in the limit or wait until another user stops using the program.

Error 648

Description: You have not entered a valid Product Key, Activation Code or CopyMinder Path. You should enter one of the following:

  • A Product Key. This may have been supplied to you by your Software Supplier and will be of the form X*-XXXX-XXXX-XX (where X* is characters or numbers of varying length).
  • An Activation Code. This may have been supplied to you by your Software Supplier and will be a series of numbers such as 43214321523.
  • A CopyMinder Path. If this is a network installation, a path may have been specified by your Network Administrator for use by the CopyMinder system. It can be a mapped path (e.g. N:CMPath) or a UNC path (e.g. servercdriveCMPath).
  • Nothing. If you enter nothing, a demonstration version of the program may be created (provided the Software Supplier has permitted this).


Solution: Contact your Network Administrator for the CMPath or your Software Supplier for a Product Key or Activation Code.

Error 649

Description: The .cm file is the wrong one for this program.


Solution: Contact your software supplier for the correct one.

Error 654

Description: The CopyMinder Path has not been found.


Solution: Edit the .cm.ini file to correct the CMPath variable.

Error 659

Description: This program is configured for network installation only. It cannot be installed as a standalone system.


Solution: Contact your Network Administrator to install it as a network installation or contact your Software Supplier to get it converted to a standalone system.

This error is most frequently a result of specifying a Product Key on a network client machine instead of the CopyMinder Network Path.  For a network installation, when a protected program is first run on a client machine, you should select "Configure as a network client" and enter the CopyMinder Network Path provided to you by your Network Administrator.  Your Network Administrator will have chosen a suitable path for this when they installed the CopyMinder CMNet.exe program on your server. Contact your Network Administrator or Software Supplier for assistance.

 

Error 660

Description: This program is configured for standalone installation only. It cannot be installed as a network system.


Solution: Contact your Software Supplier to get it converted to a network system.

Error 661

Description: The .cm file is the wrong one for this program.


Solution: Contact your software supplier for the correct one.

Error 662

Description: The .cm file is for a different product.


Solution: The protected program has found a .cm file but it has been created using a different Product Code.  The most likely cause of this is that your supplier has provided the wrong .cm file.

Error 663

Description: The .cm file is the wrong one for this program.


Solution: Contact your Software Supplier to get the correct one.

Error 666

Description: The manual activation code you have entered is invalid.


Solution: Please check that you have entered it correctly.

Error 666

Description:  An invalid manual activation code has been entered. 

CopyMinder gives 3 chances to enter it correctly then gives this error.


Solution:  Run activate.php again, making sure that the Product Key and Installation Code are correctly specified and check that the resulting activation code agrees with the one you have been entering.

 

Error 667

Description:  Internet access is required for installation as a Trial.

If you did not specify a Product Key when prompted to do so, CopyMinder will attempt to install the protected program as a Trial.

This error means that you are trying to install the protected program as a Trial without using the Internet. At present, Trials are not possible without Internet access.

The error occurs either because the settings in your <program name>.cm.ini file explicitly forbid Internet access or because CopyMinder was not able to establish an Internet connection.


Solution:  Specify a Product Key, if you have one. Check your firewall settings to ensure that access to the CopyMinder web site is permitted.

Error 668

Description: You aborted a manual activation of this program.


Solution: Please contact your Software Supplier if you are unsure what to do.

Error 670

Description: This program is configured for internet activation only. You cannot activate it via the activate.php webpage.


Solution: Allow the program access to the internet and it will automatically activate.

Error 671

Description: The Product Key you entered was invalid.


Solution: This is most likely because the product code associated with this Product Key has been deleted. Please see related article below.

Error 674

Description: Failed to access both Primary (www.copyminder.com) and Secondary (www.microcosm.co.uk) CopyMinder Internet servers and no Tertiary server specified.


Solution: There is a problem with your Internet service. If you can access other web sites with your Internet Browser, ask your Network Administrator to check that your Internet Firewall is not blocking access to these sites. If you still have a problem, contact your software supplier or Microcosm.

Error 681

Description: CopyMinder was unable to write to the Windows Registry.


Solution: Run the CMInstall.exe program which is produced when you build protection using CopyMinder version 3.1 onwards.

If you do not run CMInstall and any of the following conditions are true then you will have a problems running under Vista.

* They have User Account Control (UAC) enabled during installation (you can turn it on/off within 'Control Panel'|'User Accounts').
* They want to install to their Program Files folder (or a sub-folder off it).
* They want to run in non-Administrator mode.

Return code 684

The presence of lines in the .cm.log file on a network server containing the statement "Return Code 684" do not indicate an error condition.

Following a new release of the .cm file, the network server will update itself on its next connection to the CopyMinder servers. Then, as each client connects to it, it will tell them that there is a new version of the .cm file available so they can request it. It signals this by sending them a status value of 684, and records into the log that this has been done. This log file entry is only informational and will appear one for each network client until they are all transitioned to the version that matches the one on the network server.

Error 689

Description: Client machine is unable to get a new version of the .cm file from a sub-directory off the CopyMinder Network Path.


Solution: If the sub-directory does not exist, manually create it. It should be of the form where is the Software Developer's ID and is the Product Code specified by the Software Developer (e.g. S:CMNetPathABProduct1). Contact your Software Developer for details. Alternatively, you can extract the details from the .cm.log file on the CopyMinder Network server.

Error 693

Description: Unable to display dialog to prompt for Product Key.


Solution: If this is a network installation, you should terminate and re-install CMNet.exe.

Solution: Please contact your Software Supplier to get it re-enabled.

Error 738

Description: Required registration information not recorded


Solution: Can happen when an old .cm file is first run and the user selects "trial installation."  This triggers an update of the .cm file to a later version and the registration step is potentially omitted.  The solution is for the developer to send them a new protected program and .cm file of at least version 52.

Error 739

Description: This program has been installed or copied too many times.


Solution: Do note that one Product Key should be used per installation. If you keep using the same Product Key for multiple installations you will get this error.

Please contact your Software Supplier to purchase additional licences or to reset the counter.

Sometimes, Software Developers mis-understand the 'Number of suspect installations in the last xxx hours' value on the CopyMinder web site.  This is the current number of suspect installations, not the maximum permitted.  This number can be reduced to 0 (say) in order to allow a re-install after an error 739.

Suspicious activations when changing between user accountsIf a CopyMinder protected program is installed in standalone (not network) mode and then run from user accounts with different privileges, this may causes suspicious installations to be generated, eventually leading to an error 739 when the maximum number of suspicious installations is passed. The solution is to use version 58 or later of the .cm file, which uses a heuristic method to learn what protection checks work for all users the the software is run as. Normally the .cm file will automatically upgrade itself to the latest available version, but if the installation was activated manually or the internet connection is removed then this cannot happen. It also will not happen if the developer has asked for all updates to be frozen to a particular, earlier, version of the .cm file. In the former case, http://primary.copyminder.com/cmupdate.php will provide an executable that will upgrade a .cm file in situ without requiring internet access to complete the upgrade. In the latter case, please contact us to discuss why your updates are frozen.
Error 740

Description: Internal error.


Solution: Please contact your supplier.

Error 741

Description: Your computer system clock is incorrectly set.


Solution: CopyMinder requires that your clock is correctly set up and is within 1 hour of the correct time. The time on your computer is not within this range.

If your computer is displaying the correct time then the problem is that you have the time zone incorrectly set.

Windows includes a time zone setting which is the amount of time that your local time differs from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in the winter. GMT is also referred to as coordinated universal time (UTC). You should make sure that this is set correctly on your machine by going to Windows Start|'Control Panel'|'Date and Time'|'Time Zone'.

CopyMinder is not interested in your setting for Daylight Savings.

If you had a problem with your first installation, and need to be able to re-install, you need to contact your software supplier and get them to re-set your product key.

Error 794

Description: There was an error accessing the CopyMinder web sites even though they are working correctly.

A protected program has tried to access:
1.    89.200.137.136 (primary.copyminder.com)
2.    64.22.91.129 (secondary.copyminder.com)
3.    69.10.158.38 (www.copyminder.com)
and failed with all three.

It has then gone to 69.10.158.38 (www.microcosm.co.uk) which has determined that there is nothing wrong with the above servers.


Solution:  Confirm that they can access the above servers from their browser.

The most likely explanation is that they have changed their proxy server/firewall settings so that it blocks the CopyMinder servers.

Please try again.  If the problem persists, please contact your software supplier or Microcosm.


Error 796

Description: The Product Key you specified was invalid.


Solution: Please ensure your Product Key is of the form:

X*-XXXX-XXXX-XX 
(*  indicates variable length).

For example, ABC-1234-1234-12

 


Error 802

Description: You are trying to activate (via the Internet) but you have already activated manually. An installation that has been activated via the Internet can be replaced by a manual installation but not vice versa.


Solution: Either get another Product Key from your software supplier or ask them to do a 'manual reset'.

Error 808

Description: An entry in the Windows Registry has disappeared.


Solution: Avoid doing System Restores to a date prior to the date that you first ran the protected program. If you are using a Registry cleanup utility, please let Microcosm know which one is causing the problem.

Error 809

Description: A valid email address is required before you can use this software.


Solution: An Email has been sent to the address you registered with us. When you receive it, please click the link in it to verify your email address. If you do not receive the email, simply run the program again for options.

Error 810

Description: A valid email address is required before you can use this software.


Solution: An Email has been sent to the address you registered with us. When you receive it, please click the link in it to verify your email address. If you do not receive the email, simply run the program again for options.

Error 815

This error means that the number of unexpired roaming licences for a network licence key is equal to the number of simultaneous users, so there are no network licences for CMServer to serve.

Error 816

Description: Your software supplier no longer wishes to use CopyMinder copy protection.


Solution: Ask your software supplier to supply you with a new, unprotected copy of the program.

Error 819

Description

The user has tried to manually activate a Trial but the Software Developer does not allow this.

Solution

If the Software Developer allows Trials using Internet access then the user could install to a machine that has internet access.

If the Software Developer wants to allow manual Trials then they should do so by setting the default parameters for the Product Code on the CopyMinder Developer's web site.

If neither internet nor manual activations are permitted for Trials then the user should contact the Software Developer.

 

Error 830To Shell Protect a program with Advanced Runtime Protection enabled, your .cm file version must be 44 or later.
Error 840To Shell Protect a .NET program you must be using version 46 or later of the .cm file.
Error 900Description:  The user has hit Cancel when prompted to get a manual update code.  If normal internet access is permitted then CopyMinder would have previously tried and failed to do a normal Internet access.

Solution:  If internet access is permitted then check that the internet connection is functioning correctly and that the CopyMinder web sites are not blocked by a firewall or proxy server.  Otherwise, perform a manual update.
Error 901

Description: Activation was not possible either via the Internet or manually.
CopyMinder usually tries to activate via the Internet but gives you an option to activate manually if Internet activation is not possible.


Solution: If your software supplier permits Activation via the Internet then you should check your Internet connection and firewall settings. Click here for further details.
A <program name>.cm.log file on your machine will contain more information about the cause of the failure.
If Internet activation fails and your software supplier permits manual activation but you choose not to do so then you will get this error.

Error 907

Description: Attempting to write to Secure Data Area before activation.


Solution: Make sure your application has been installed correctly and try again.

Error 909

Description:  CopyMinder was unable to write to your <program name>.cm.dir directory.  This is usually a result of insufficient access rights..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution:  Use CMInstall.exe to install with the correct access rights.

If you do not have CMInstall.exe:

  • Delete the <program name>.cm.dir directory and all the files/directories in it.
  • Set full access rights for the directory you are installing to.
  • Re-install.

 

Error 910

Description: Unable to activate as there are no possible activation methods


Solution: examine the .cm.ini file. There are three possible activation methods for a token:
Trial
Product Key
Network client

All of these can be forbidden in the .cm.ini file (see the manual for details), forbidding them all will cause a 910 error. Network client activation is implicitly forbidden with network server type installations (cmnet or cmserver), at least one of either Trial or Product Key must be allowed.

Error 923

Description
The protected software was unable to create one of it's required files.

Solution
This is most likely to do with access rights so running CMInstall should fix this.

Error 928

Error 928

This error means that a client machine on a network installation running CMServer has been unable to open a TCP/IP socket to communicate with the machine running CMServer. This is very likely a permissions problem.

Error 929

Description
The protected program was unable to connect to the CopyMinder Network Server (CMServer).

Solution
1) Ensure that CMServer is running on the server.
2) Ensure that no firewalls are blocking the connection between the machine running the protected software and the server.

Error 936

Description
The protected program failed to read the response from the CopyMinder Network Server (CMServer).

Cause
The most likely causes for this error are:

  1. A failure in the network connection between the server and client machines.
  2. CMServer has quit unexpectedly (crashed).

 

Solution
Ensure that the network connection between the client machine and the server is still functioning correctly.
Check that CMServer is still running on the server machine.

If you find that CMServer has stopped unexpectedly then please contact your software developer.

The .cm.log file from the CMServer directory and the CMServer.log file (run CMServer /logfile) may also be useful in diagnosing the problem.

Error 937

Description
The connection to the CopyMinder Network Server (CMServer) was closed unexpectedly,

Solution
Check the status of your network - your network administrator should be able to diagnose any problems.

Error 943

Description
The network client's attempt to read data from the server has failed.

Reason
If the extended error is 431:10060 it means that the server took too long to start the protection check. This can happen if the server is very busy.

Error 946

Description
The CopyMinder Network Server (CMServer) encountered an internal error.

Solution
Ask your network administrator to check the server-side log files for your protected software and for CMServer.

Error 947

Description
Error 947 means that a new network server .cm file cannot be activated because dialogs are suppressed (because CMServer is running as a Service).

Solution
Step 1) Stop the CMServer service (eg, through the Services management window)
Step 2) Run CMServer (eg, by double-clicking it) - the configuration dialog will appear. Check that it is configured to install/start as a Windows Service.
Step 3) Click the Start button.
Step 4) It should now be able to display any required dialogs to activate the .cm file before installing/starting as a service.

 

Error 948

Description
The .cm file used by the CopyMinder Network Server (CMServer) cannot be downgraded to a version prior to 50.

Solution
Contact your software supplier.

Error 957

Description: Busy timeout. CopyMinder has been trying to open the .cm file for some time without success. 


Solution: If the extended error is 240:32 then this means that a protection check is already running. Please check that there is not a CopyMinder dialog open that is waiting for a response from you.

Otherwise, this can be caused by your [program name].exe.cm file being read-only. Please check that it is writable and the directory it is located in has full access rights. 
 

Error 962

Description: You need to re-boot your machine and run your program again.


Solution: This is only necessary once on any particular machine that has this problem.  It should only apply to a small number of Windows 95/98 installations (Microsoft put a file in the wrong directory!).

If you continue to get this error, please go to 'Control Panel'|System|'Device Manager' and check that it thinks the Primary IDE device is ok.


Error 985

Error 985 means that the licence is awaiting email verification and the user has been prompted to ask if they want the verification email to be resent, then they have cancelled this dialog box.

If you provide your own dialog in this situation via the messages DLL interface and return 3 from your implementation of CM_MSGS_AwaitingEmailVerification() then this will also cause error 985.

Error 991

Description
The protected program was waiting too long for the Advanced Runtime Protection (ARP) system to initialize.

Solution
This is usually caused by TrendMicro Anti-Virus software preventing the ARP system from working properly. Stop TrendMicro and see if you are then able to run the protected software.

See Also
Error 1202 often accompanies this error.

Error 996

Description: Upgrading/downgrading the .cm file failed due to a problem transferring the .NET data.


Solution: The extended error number will indicate the reason. See related articles.

Error 997

Description
Your .cm file is trying to downgrade to a version that does not support protection of .NET programs.

Solution
Contact your software supplier.

Error 998

Description: There is no description for this error.


Solution: Please contact Microcosm for assistance with this error.

Error 999

Description: There is no description for this error.


Solution: Please contact Microcosm for assistance with this error.

Error 1005

Description

This error number can mean two things:

1. If the error does not have a path appended to it then it means that the CMInstall destination directory does not already exist and CMInstall is unable to create the destination directory.

2. If the error does have a path on the end (e.g. 1005/161/c:abcmyprog.exe.cm.ini) then this means that CMInstall was unable to write a Path= statement to the ini file.

Solution

1. If the CMInstall /p option was used to specify the destination path, check that the /p is followed by a valid path.
If the operating system is earlier than Windows 2000 then ensure that the specified path already has a parent.  For example, if you specified c:abcdef, ensure that c:abc already exists.

2. If a .ini file already exists, ensure that it has a valid ini file structure.


Error 1008
Description:  CMInstall was unable to set the access rights to the destination path. 
Error 1008/1332 means that Windows returned an error 1332 when asked to set the access rights.  This means "No mapping between account names and security IDs was done."  The account name used by CopyMinder is "Everyone".   If error 1008/1332 occurs, CopyMinder will carry on installing but will install for the current user only, not all users.
 
Solution: Make sure that you have an Everyone account name.
Error 1011Description:  Error copying .cm file from source to destination.

Solution:  This is most likely to be caused by the user specifying an invalid destination path.

An extended error will have been appended to the error number (e.g. 1011/7).  The meaning of this extended error is:
        1 - Destination file already exists and they do not want to overwrite it.
        2 - Source required but not found.
        3 - Destination path not found and they do not want us to create it.
        4 - General failure other than Access Denied.
        5 - Access Denied
        6 - Unable to create destination directory.
        7 - Error creating an empty .cm file in the destination directory.
        8 - Unable to access destination path for reason other than not found.
Error 1014

Description:  The version of the .cm file is too old for this copy of CMInstall.exe.

Solution:  Contact your software supplier for a newer copy of the .cm file.

 

Error 1016Description:  Error creating empty .cm file in destination path.



Solution:  This is most likely to be the result of the user specifying an invalid destination path.

The Windows error number in the MessageBox indicates the precise cause of the error.

This error message is usually followed by a CMInstall error 1011.
Error 1017

Description: CMInstall was unable to create the directory specified for the CM Destination Path.

Solution: Check that the specified path is valid and that you have the necessary permissions to create a sub-directory in it.

 

Error 1018

Description:  CMInstall was unable to create the Destination Path for the .cm file.


Solution:  You probably do not have sufficient access rights to the All Users folder.  If installing as a non-administrator, use the /c option with CMInstall.exe (e.g. CMInstall /c).  This will install protection for the current user only.

 

Error 1025

Description
The /c command line parameter (install for current user) is not supported on Vista onwards due to the way in which these operating systems elevate processes to run with higher privileges.

Solution
Use CMInstall to install the CopyMinder protection for all users (the default) instead.

 

Error 1054

Error 1054

Unknown Machine name

In a network protection environment, the machine name stored in the client .cm.ini file cannot be resolved. This might happen if an old server is retired and a new one set up, but the ini files on the client machines are not updated to reflect this

Error 1060

Cause: Downgrading the .cm file to a version with incompatible encryption.

Solution: Contact your software developer.

Error 1202

Description
Part of the Advanced Runtime Protection (ARP) system included in the Shell method failed to initialize properly.

Solution
There is a known problem where TrendMicro Anti-Virus software prevents the ARP system functioning properly. Stop TrendMicro and see if you are then able to run the software.

See Also
Error 991 usually accompanies this error.
Error 1211.

Error 1211

Description
Part of the Advanced Runtime Protection system (ARP) failed to function properly. ARP is part of the Shell method.

Solution
There is a known problem where TrendMicro Anti-Virus software prevents the ARP system functioning properly. Stop TrendMicro and see if the problem continues to occur.

See Also
Error 1202.

Error 1214

Description
Part of the Advanced Runtime Protection system (ARP) failed to function properly. ARP is part of the Shell method.

Solution
There is a known problem where Symantec EndPoint Protection and Avast! Anti-Virus software "Deep scan" prevents the ARP system functioning properly. If either of these are present, stop them and see if the problem is solved. If it is, consider excluding the directory containing the protected program from being scanned before re-enabling the AV software.

Error 1518

Description: You get error 1518 when Shell protecting a .NET assembly using the CopyMinder program.

Cause: The assembly you are trying to protect has been strong-name signed.

Solution: CopyMinder protect the assembly before strong-name signing it.

Error 1718

Description
Installing CMServer as a Windows Service has failed.

Solution
This is usually to do with having insufficient permissions to perform the installation. Installing a Service can only be done by an Administrator.

On Vista and Windows 7, being logged in using an Administrator account is not enough. You should start a new command-prompt by finding a Command-Prompt shortcut, right clicking on it, and selecting "Run as Administrator". Now you should be able to run
CMServer /s
and install the Service successfully.

 

Error 1721

Description
The CMServer Service failed to start.

Solution
Consult the CMServer log file which you can access by running:
CMServer /logfile

 

Error 1727

Description
CMServer didn't recognize the Product Code that the protected program passed to it.

Solution
Check that CMServer is serving all the products that you expect.
Check the CMServer log file for any errors during the protection check for that product.

To view the CMServer log file run:
CMServer /logfile
from a command prompt.

 

Error 1738

Description
There are no products left for CMServer to serve.

Solution
This either means that there are no .cm files for CMServer to use, or that after calling a protection check at startup for each product none were successful.

Check the .cm.log file for each product that CMServer serves to see what error occurred.

Error 1744

Description
You are trying to install CMServer as a Windows Service, but CMServer.exe is not stored on the system drive.

Solution
Install CMServer.exe on the system drive. The system drive is the drive on which Windows is installed (eg, C:).

Error 1965

Error 1965

ws2_32.dll missing or corrupt

CopyMinder requires the Windows ws2_32.dll file to be present and functional for the protection check to work. If we cannot load it, this error will be returned

This error only applies to 64 bit code and only where there is a network user limit

Error 1968

If an error 1968 occurs in a 64 bit protected program, please ensure that the accompanying <program name>.cm file is present in the directory with the protected program

Error 1978

Error 1978

File creation error

An attempt to create a file in the same directory as the working copy of the <program name>.cm file failed. File create and write access to this directory is required at run time. If you have used CMInstall with the default options this directory will be a sub-directory from the location specified in the AllUsersProfile environment variable. If you haven\'t used CMInstall, you must.

This error appplies to the 64 bit protection check only

Error 1981

Error 1981

Null pointer

When one of the CM_Get functions was called, a null value was passed for the pointer to receive the return data. This error applies to the CopyMinder 64 bit modules only.

Error 1983

Error 1983

One of the CM_Get functions was called before a protection check had been successfully completed, so there was no data to return.

Error 11666This error is returned by cm_prodkey.php and means you have an outstanding invoice over 60 days old. In line with our polices on paying for invoices, we have restricted your use of the CopyMinder website until this invoice is settled. In order to pay for an invoice, please login to the website and go to the "Billing Information" section.
Error 19, 103 Starting the CMNET service
This error message means that the CMNet service did not start successfully because the CopyMinder Network Path could not be found.
 
CMNet versions prior to November 2007
Windows services cannot, by default, access network shares due to the account under which they run. This means that you should not specify a UNC path or a mapped network drive for the CopyMinder Network Path even if they refer to the local machine. The shared directory should be on the machine that's running the CMNet service and you should give the local path to this directory (e.g., C:SharedDirectory).
 
Newer versions of CMNet
Newer versions of CMNet are able to access network shares when running as a service. When you install/start the CMNet service and provide the CopyMinder Network Path it will detect that you have given the path to a network share and ask you for the username and password of a specific user account under which to run the service. This account should have Administrator rights on the machine.
