I bought CC but it keeps telling me it isn't licensed. What do I do?


This happens if you are not connected to the internet when you connect to calibre as a wireless device, for example if your home network normally has no internet connection.

You can fix this problem by doing the following steps 1 time.

  1. Ensure that your device is connected to the internet. This can be on your home network after connecting to the internet, in a coffee shop, or via a cellular link (tethered or native). If via a native cellular connection (one on the device in question, not tethered), be sure to tell CC that connecting over "3G" is permitted (Settings / Connecting to calibre / Wireless device connection/ IP address and port / Allow connecting using 3g)
  2. In CC, attempt to connect to calibre as a wireless device. This connection will probably fail because your library isn't visible, but in the meantime CC will verify your license.
  3. Reset your network to what you normally use.

CC will remember the license until it is uninstalled or you do a "Clear Data". In these cases you will need to do the above steps again.
