When My Potato Challenge Code can change ?

Voicemeeter Potato License is given for a single PC only by a Challenge/Response code.
The Challenge Code, given by the application, is expected to be different on each computer.
(Challenge code is pending on your CPU / Motherboard and in some cases on Windows or Voicemeeter installation).

This licensing has been designed as an alternative to SAAS model, simpler and cheaper for everyone, it is pending on PC hardware / Installation process only. Instead of obliging you to stay connected to internet to pay every month, our activation code stays valid until you decide to change your PC. And with our donationware model, you can select the smallest price to renew your license. (Internet is not needed to activate your license).

With Voicemeeter Potato version 3.0.1.4, The Challenge code is expected to stay the same, even after a Windows update.
To secure the Windows re-installation (possibly on new harddisk) Potato version 3.0.1.4 allows to export your computer Footsprint on external disk or USB key. Then you can be sure to retrieve your challenge code after a new Voicemeeter re-installation (just enter your registered e-mail and right click on challenge code to import your previously stored PC Footprint).

If you still have problem with Challenge code, we can study your issue thanks to the Voicemeeter_ActivationLog.dat located in the folder "My Documents \ Voicemeeter".

This is also possible to compile all your activation history in a single log file if you save it before re-installing windows and restore it after:
1- before re-installing windows: store the file Voicemeeter_ActivationLog.dat (which is in "My Documents \ Voicemeeter" folder) in external disk.
2- After re-installing Windows: recreate the folder "Voicemeeter" in "My Documents" directory and copy the previously stored Voicemeeter_ActivationLog.dat in...
3- install Voicemeeter Potato again.

To let us analyze why the Challenge Code could change without reason, send to us the Voicemeeter_ActivationLog.dat file by the webshop contact form: https://shop.vb-audio.com/en/contact-us
