If you are also getting file errors (see above) then applying the fix for that problem has likely resolved the issue. If you continue to get license errors then it is possible the license key has become corrupt:

  • Log on to a workstation that runs Multimedia Science School as an administrator user.
  • Save the Keyfile, make sure this is saved as .plkey for 11-16 and a .xml file for 16-18.
  • Load Multimedia Science School as normal.
  • Once loaded select Help, Update Keyfile.
  • Select Update and browse to the new Keyfile.
  • Highlight the Keyfile and select Open then click Close.
  • Your Keyfile will now have been updated.

MMSS closes


Multimedia Science School preview ended

A message appears in Multimedia Science School advising your preview has ended and the application closes.


This is intentional and indicates that the module in question is not licensed to the school. No fix required.
