I've had this issue multiple times, and it's really starting to get annoying. My fully purchased (through Xfer) version of Serum every so often will lock up and say I need to make sure i'm running Splice/connected to my splice account/activate my splice license/etc. Basically it thinks it needs a splice license to run, when it doesn't, because I own the thing outright. The only solution to this I've found is uninstall splice from my computer, uninstall serum, then re-install and re-activate with my serial. But when I download splice again to get a sample from their site, the issue comes back in Serum. There's gotta be a way to fix this! Anyone?
