Seems I'm facing a very similar problem with DG NV Tools.

Just to note, I'm in "video retiree" and hardly do any video tasks at all anymore. The last time I've created & processed a video project with DGDecNVTools was in autumn of 2017. And also one project in 2016. Yes really. Now these days, trying to open any video in DGDecNV throws me an "invalid license" ... mostly. Sometimes it's also "application doesn't response".

I'm not here to complain. Once I asked Donald how to proceed with donating if I don't have a PayPal account, and Donald was so generous to give me a free license. I'm still very thankful for this. But after many years of so relaxing problem-less serving of video files (ffmpeg is a PITA to me, and from experience oftentimes unreliable and/or unpredictable), I feel bit lost about getting back into the swing of things when I can't use the good old & approved tools ...
My hardware has not changed in any way over the years. Only change is with USB devices ... one more USB HDD, and a change of the USB WiFi adapter. That's all. And of course a good bunch of Windows (still 7) Updates. USB devices shouldn't be part of the hardware ID generation, or should they?
*exe, *dll and *license are all in the proper locations. All that stuff last used in 2017, all good & working. New call in 2019 ... "invalid license".

Some hint for an old man who just tries to make things working like they did in the past?

Maybe just try re-generate it at http://rationalqm.us/licensing.html, that has always worked for me but since I retired from encoding I can't tell if it still works today, I guess it does.

Most probably; Donald Graft changed the license generating code a few times, including or excluding some machine specs. Regenerating license keys should be pretty generous for registered users. If you fear exceeding the limit, just ask him.

This post touches on what hardware is used for the license in newer versions
As has been said, just regenerate the license with the newer slipstream

@Didée

Respect and admiration! So good to see you posting and may the divine be with you.

As members have pointed out get your new machine ID and then use the licensing page. I did change the security method several times, requiring regeneration of licenses. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We'll all help you get things going. And then you can bring your magic back to us. Would you like to make some CUDA/CUDASynth/OpenCL filters? Shoot me a PM, we can work together.

Age is just a number. The divine is with us all.

Send me a PM with your desired email address and I will mail an activation (with new user id) there. Try to save your user IDs.

Just in case you were unaware: videoh = DG
