This is one of the most common problems. I had to reinstall RMVX after something became corrupted. I had the privelege of trying out the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Bluntly, I don’t like it – it’s way too gimicky and iOS-ey for my liking – so uninstalled it and went back to the Windows 7/XP dual boot setup I had previously. RMVX was working just fine previously, but now it’s not. I had to uninstall and reinstall it, but receive the infamous “Failed to obtain serial trial number from nTiles” error.
I know all about setting permissions, running as admin and running in XP compatibility, but it still won’t go past this error for me to re-enter my activiation code. It’s probably the firewall blocking something, but to be honest right now I can’t be bothered with resolving it.
Instead, I’ll focus on RMVXA (trial because I can’t afford $90, nor could I afford the $75 during preorder) and some of the other makers I’ve been playing with. At least until I can reinstall Windows XP and try again.
And, of course, I’m still working on the
RPG Maker Times Companion website, which will be all the way complete by the end of this month. (As a result, not only of the website development but also of the nTiles error, the demo for TGP demo will also be put on hold.)
