    Error 0024

    If you receive the error message "Error 0024 - Unable to activate trial license because the specified email address has already been registered," during activation, you have already completed your free 30-day trial and need to purchase a full license in order to continue using your ESET product.

Once you have completed the activation process, you will receive an email with your trial Username, Password, and License Key. Your product will then perform a modules update and your 30-day trial will be activated.
