Title says it all: V3.7.9 doesn't recognize VARA HF license the second time opened. The first time I opened a new install of V3.7.9 (No previous install) it recognized my license and allowed me to [TUNE] from the front panel. The second time I opened the program up it said I needed a license for VARA HF. I checked the rev and it is VARA HF V4.6.2 and the license key is in the settings. Anyhow, the rig is IC 7300 and all is operating properly.

Thanks to Irad, he pointed out that I had entered my call in VAR AC as KB0NE-5 and that the VARA license was just KB0NE which makes things misbehave. So in other words: It was a dumb operator error.
This was easily fixed by editing the file VarAC.ini with notepad and changing my call by dropping the '-5'. All is right with the world now.
Thanks again Irad!
It takes a few seconds from startup for VarAC to identify that your VARA modem license is there. the VARA modem sends a commands out that tells if it is registered or not. Until this message broadcasted, VarAC can't tell.
I assume you started VarAC and hit the TUNE immediately ?
Is this reproducible ?
