Unverified Installation Key
If you receive a message that the installation key cannot be verified during driver installation, make sure the Application’s public IP address is correct in the ALTR Portal. If the public IP address is incorrect and doesn't match the public IP address of the machine you're installing the driver on, update it and run the driver installer again. If you receive the message again, contact ALTR Support for assistance.

If no queries appear in the Query Log after executing them in your application, make sure your application has been modified to use ALTR's driver. Refer to your application's user guide for further instructions.
