Error -1 on Licence verification

Hello all

I need to be able to verify if the plug-in is registered or not.
When I call the "configure" Function it returns "-1" error even if the plug-in is registered ( In FileMaker Prefs I can See it )
What does "-1" error means ?

Here is the code I use.
reg_name ="CIS" // Enter your registration name
reg_code = "xxxxxxxxxxxx" // My code instead
reg_userCount = "25"// Enter the number of users for your license
reg_licenseType = "Developer"// Enter your license type
register = PrSw_Configure ( "register|" & reg_name & "|" & reg_code & "|" & reg_userCount & "|" & reg_licenseType )
save = PrSw_Configure ( "save_reg" )

Thanks for any input

    Hi Eric,

    The error happens when you try to save it in the preferences. In the previous step, he was able to register it.

    If you restart FileMaker (without opening the file), and you go to the FileMaker prefs, can you still see the license info?

    A the meantime I have a couple of other questions:
    - What version of FileMaker do you use? - Which operating system do you use? - What are the privileges of the user? Are there special policies?

    Best regards,
