Licence Authorisation After Upgrading Windows

After updating Microsoft Windows via the Windows Update function, or upgrading Windows to a new version (EG upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 10) you may encounter a message when reopening Cubit or Global\Offsider Estimating asking an administrator to grant permission to runt he software.

To resolve this issue you would simply need to right click the Cubit icon on the desktop and select Run As Administrator.
Once you have done this you will then need to reenter the registration details.
The software will then reopen as normal.



  • I followed the above steps after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 however Cubit says the License Key is already in use, even though it is only installed on this computer.
