How can I batch convert Tedds document (.ted) files to PDF files?

Answer A separate application is included in Tedds which will convert multiple Tedds document files in the .TED format to .PDF files.  The TedToPdf application can be used to convert a single file, multiple files in a single directory or all files in a directory hierarchy.  For each file which is converted the PDF version will be stored in the same directory and with the same file name.  If a previous version of the PDF file already exists you will be prompted to confirm that the existing file should be overwritten To convert a single file Open Windows Explorer and browse to the Tedds

When activating my PAK I get the error "License activation service (LicenseActivation.exe) is not installed or registered correctly". Why is this and how do I fix it?

Issue I get the following error message as sbown in the picture below when activating my PAK  "License activation service (LicenseActivation.exe) is not installed or registered correctly".

Question When I run Tedds, I sign in and select my Online License and it opens OK.  But when I run a calculation it does not respond - I just see the Windows spinning wheel and no calculation appears.  It seems as if the application has hung.  What is wrong and what do I need to do to fix it?
