After activating the product in the Licence Management tool MX v8i still shows the 30-day trial or the 15-minute time-out demo message on start-up.
The reason is due to the shortcuts generated when MX v8i was installed not being linked to the licensed product.
Note: If there is a change to the software licence and it requires reactivation the 30-day trial or the 15-minute time-out demo message may appear again and you can follow the above process.
