However you can clear this issue by run cinema with administrator privileges by right mouse button click on the cinema.exe.
Try again to paste your activation key
It's at the root my C drive.
I am getting the Activation program to run if I place the Measureit plugin folder there next to my octane folder.
However, I'm not getting an installation code in the window that pops up.
Instead it gives me: -1
How can I get an installation code?

It quarantines your .exe file the moment it hits the folder.
Is there another way to activate this plugin?
Trying to remove the virus protection software is against company policy and IT has been no help in trying to whitelist your plugin .exe
disable for a while the antivirus before downloading the zip package.
For unknown reason it will consider our plugin dll and exe file like a treat and delete and probably delete.....this of course cause our plugin to stop work correctly.
Once you download and unzip the plugin folder, put this folder on the exclusion list of your antivirus.
In order to activate the plugin and solve the "error during activation"
Right click on c4d icon
run as -> administrator
activate the plugin
restart cinema normaly
The plugin should work and now you can enable again your antivirus protection.
