Important for Windows Installation: Error ‘Cannot read Author key file. It may be missing or corrupt’.
The Windows Coach 7.4 installation has been modified to not reset the Author key to the default value after update. This means that a file, which consists this Author key, will not be overwritten during Coach Installation. Unfortunately for installation of Coach 7.4 on some systems a direct upgrade (installation when an older version of Coach is installed) does not work correctly. In such situation, the file is deleted and not replaced by the new one, and you get an error message Cannot read Author key file. It may be missing or corrupt. There are two ways to solve this problem:
1. First uninstall the older version of Coach and after that install the new Coach 7.4, or
2. Run “Program and Features” repair.
For older models of CoachLab II+ (Windows and Mac) and EuroMotion (only Windows) it may be needed to install low-lever drivers. The low-level drivers are digitally signed with the CMA license certificate. This certificate must be installed prior to the installation of low-level drivers. Download and install the public CMA certificate.
