I had the same problem with many of my plugins. When I tried using 1.77 in windows 8.1. Then I went back to 1.0761 then all work ok. I don't know what 1.077 has compared to 761 but all my plugins work.

How much did that cost? and where did you get it from! I want one!

Are you talking about Dark Physics or Dark Dynamix?

Install U 7.62

All the latest paid plugins only activate on U7.62

And you might want this editor... even though the activator is completely unrelated

Good Luck...

Thank You MrValentine and DennisW for your Replies!!!

Installing DBPro ver 7.62 did the trick!

All Plugins Activated fine after installing DBPro version 7.62
