Error description

  • Activating from a command line using the activate command with
    only the -g parameter like this:
    
    "activate -g"
    
    Results in an error something like this:
    
    "Unable to log in.  This can be due to either mismatching
    product versions on your machine and the server, or to network
    problems..."
    
    When using that same "activate -g" command in version 5.6, it
    brings up an empty activate dialog box, but does not actually
    produce any error.  So the error appears to be misleading and in
    the DDL topic "Activating Projects", the documentation for the
    activate command suggest that the other parameters are optional.
    Yet clearly activation does require more than the -g parameter
    to succeed.
