Is Manual activation for PGP Personal Desktop 8.0 for Windows still possible?
I've been happily using PGP Personal Desktop 8.0 for Windows since 2004 but when I rebuilt my XP machine yesterday I found that when I went to activate it I got ""PGP is unable to contact the License Authorization server".
I spent about two hours on the phone today getting shuttled between Technical Support and Customer Service but couldn't get anybody to tell me whether its even possible to still generate a manual activation key, or even whether the License Authorization Server for PGP 8.0 was recently taken off-line. (I'd activated the product on another reinstall in the last six months or so.)
I understand that 8.0 reached end of life in 2008 and is no longer supported but this seems a little different -- I'm just wanting to keep using the software I've paid for.
