WMI Explorer will not register

Bought Studio, PrimalSQL and WMI Explorer. First two registered fine. WMI Explorer refuses with error GUI message, "The Certificate authority is invalid or incorrect."

Please post in the corresponding product forum and include the requested information about OS and product version.
Certificate errors usually stem from a missing root certificate for our digital signatures or the counter signatures for the time stamp.
Since we recently updated our signature (as they expire every other year) it is possible that your downloads have the old signature on PowerShell Studio and PrimalSQL but the new signature on WMI Explorer. Or vice versa, we cannot tell without version information.

I am assuming that with 'register' you mean 'install'. You can right click on the installer file, select 'Properties' and explore the details of the digital signatures and their counter signatures to see what root certificate might be missing.
Generally bringing your OS up to current patch levels should also update all common root certificates.

Please note that the above just states common occurrences for such an error. Without your exact version information it is not possible to check any details.

Works fine after using offline license file.
BTW system is current on patching. WMI Explorer was downloaded the same day I bought it (yesterday).

Thanks anyway.
