just downloaded and installed diphone on my mac osx 10.7.3.
there is an error  regarding supervp appearing when diphone launches addan
(when i load a sound in the “create dictionary from sound” popup and press ok).
see at the bottom of the text block below. the error also happens when i click “validate” and “run”
in the addan analysis window. what is the problem?

Dear Johannes,

We just coreected the activation scheme. Go ahead and generate a new activation code for Diphone and use that one instead.

hallo arshia, axel and charles,

thanks for your fast reply and help.

what i don´t understand now is: where to put the new activation code, that i just received from the forum.
the popup window, in which i entered the activation code after i installed diphone the first time, doesn´t automaticly reappear when i boot the programm.
even if i reinstall it. is there a trick?

thanks for your help,

Following internal discussion with Johannes we publish here 
the procedure that allows to install the new keys using the
supervp command line that comes with Diphone: 

1) Store the key file that was send in the email on your Desktop
2) start the application that you find in
3) in the Finder open /Applications/Diphon Studio 4.2/Kernels
4) drag and drop supervp (attention this needs to be supervp not into the window of the
5) in the terminal type -init_key_file after the end of the supervp
command. Attention, you need to add a space after typing this
6) In the finder locate the key file you have stored under 1 and drag &
drop it into the terminal.
7) In the Terminal you should now see a single command line similar to

/Applications/Diphone\ Studio\ 4.2/Kernels/supervp -init_key_file

There need to be spaces before and after the -init_key_file parameter

8) Hit return
