I bought a new laptop because the old one fried, and I've been trying to install RoboHelp to the new machine. Has anyone experienced this? I am a paid subscriber, and the installation process (which seems to be somewhat archaic, since it won't work with either of the browsers on the new machine) recognizes that, but the active device within my account is still pointing to the old machine, and maybe that's the problem. So I deactivated it, and I'm wondering if there is there a way to add my new device/laptop so that I can install the program?
Thanks in advance for any guidance/help, and sorry if it's a dumb question.

If you were able to deactivate, then you should be clear for installing on the new device. If it's still hassling you, contact Adobe Support and explain the situation. They deal with it all the time with old machines that are DOA...
Hi Jeff, thanks for the response. The funny thing is that Adobe just sent me an email letting me know that my free trial has started, though the software never loaded. I had a tech person there access my machine yesterday, and she wasn't able to figure it out, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I'll probably try them again, or switch to something like Flare, which I've also used.
I'm using RoboHelp 2017. They suggested that I update the Application Manager, which I just did, but it's still not working.
I contacted them yesterday and will be working with them today to resolve the issue.
