    Invalid serial number for 2.0 RC1

    cdukes Lurker

       

      I registered -- filled out the 400 question form and all

       

       

      Downloaded, installed, got to the part where it asks for my 20 digit key and boom...the key is not 20 digits...wtf?

       

       

      Here's what I got:

       

      Serial Number for Windows: 98DF1-RDX4K-K5QDH-4RNJT

      Serial Number for Linux: 9AXF4-R69D2-JEQ4

      VMware Server 2.0 Release Candidate 1 for Linux

      Latest Version: Release Candidate 1 | 7/1/2008 | Build 101586

       

       

      Console install:

       

      Please enter your 20-character serial number.

       

      Type XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX or 'Enter' to cancel:  9AXF4-R69D2-JEQ4

       

      The answer "9AXF4-R69D2-JEQ4" is invalid.  It must be of the form

      XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX where X is a digit 0-9 or a capital letter A-Z

       

      Please enter your 20-character serial number.

       

      Type XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX or 'Enter' to cancel:  98DF1-RDX4K-K5QDH-4RNJT (I tried the windows key just for the heck of it, but of course that didn't work either)

       

      The serial number 98DF1-RDX4K-K5QDH-4RNJT is invalid.

       

       

       

      What am I doing wrong?
