Yep, did a force update and even cleared the appdata and force updated again but still gives the error.

I can confirm the same issue. I though it was just something about my config, but I guess not.

How did you attempt to Force Update it?

I feel like there was a “force update” option when clicking on the container in the docker tab, but after having this issue yesterday I couldn’t seem to find it anymore. Maybe I was just blind yesterday.

It is next to the docker name in the docker tab in unraid. It will say check for update or force update I think.

I don't see anyone who has run into this issue in the thread, so I'm guessing this is something I messed up :)

 

After installing the container using the default settings, I can access the WebUI and MakeMKV seems to be running correctly. However, I'm unable to save any settings from the Preferences window, or even enter a registration key. MakeMKV throws a "Failed to save settings" error instead. I've also tried to set up the container with PID and GID of 0, with the same results. I don't see anything relevant in the log file. I'm at a loss... any idea what I should try? Thanks.

After poking around a little more, I noticed that there seems to be a problematic symlink:

 

[nobody@81e99f3f013c ~]$ ls -la

Deleting this symlink allows me to save preferences in MakeMKV as expected -- that is, until the container is restarted and the symlink gets re-recreated by start.sh.

thanks i was able to replicate the issue, i have fixed the problem so please pull down the image by doing a force update, please note you may still have to remove '/config/home/.MakeMKV' folder and then restart the container, after that you should be good.

I can't get it to work after updating to latest 1.16.4.

 

I get 'Your temporary key has expired and was removed. Please restart the application.' error every time I try to go to webUI.

 

I entered a valid key (expires tomorrow) in the registration dialog that pops up but I keep getting the error with the key after a restart and can no longer use the app.

Let's see if tomorrow the author will release another key to be used.

Needs a key refresh for those of us tightwads who only use this occasionally, Binhex where are you, k've tried a force update and zilch, i can wait ;>)
2nd of Nov is the current expiration of the trial key so I can only assume you have an out-of-date docker-image please do a force update to ensure you are running the latest version

Had already tried that, repeated a force-update and still the same .... 'Evaluation period has expired ....'

 

It does say that this version is to expire on 2nd Nov but still fails to open, with the above message. Using the 'purchase' tab just does nothing so how do i sort this?

i cant fix what i cant see, and currently i cant replicate what you are seeing, here is what im seeing, pulling tagged 'latest' and starting the container:-

as you can see there are no issues starting makemkv and the trial licence is correctly set to expire on 2nd of nov. one thing you can try is deleting all files/folder in your /config folder for this container then restart it.

very strange indeed!, i can only assume that the date is not set correctly on your host (unraid), can you drop to 'terminal' (not console for container) and type 'date' and confirm the time and date looks correct.

Nope, it's fine, maybe i've hit some inbuilt threshold counter?

 

I'm busy deleting appdata folder and reinstalling from scratch, let you know how that goes. Thanks.

SOLVED!

 

Deleting and recreating my appdata folder and redonloading latest image sorted it. I now have a fresh 'evaluation period' , yay!

 

Think i may have run up against a coded usage threshold somewhere along the line. It DOES get a bit of use, but not a lot of use. I did consider purchasing a key but cant see anywhere where it could/would be accepted. All of those help menus appear to do nothing? Thanks for you help, appreciated!
