Reading your reply makes me wish that all my customers were programers :) - you covered every issue/question I had with clear answers.
So, hmmm... it sounds like everything is working as expected (except for the part about it ultimately NOT working :) ). So, like you, I'm puzzled by what's going wrong and/or about that difference in availability counts. I guess maybe there's already one C4D license checked out by someone who is not using the plugin(?).
My only other thought to look into is (what you already have planned as a next step)... to see exactly what's showing up to your SNCheck() routine. As mentioned, I don't think I yet have any experience with an R13 version of the License Server (? dunno what all my customers are using), so maybe something has changed there.
I think the first thing I'd look at is whether that 'extended' license key string is arriving intact ie.:
xxxxxx = 6 chars of your choosing (supposedly ignored by License Server, aside from display)
12345 = last 5 digits of the Serial Package (this seems to be correct, since you say that it's listed within the package on the license server)
- = whatever character you chose to delineate the first part of the string from the actual license key... the thing your SNCheck() code may be searching for.
..... = whatever your license key consists of.
With that in mind, your reply indicates that all of the above is correct (being displayed in the serial number field for your plugin), so I'm as puzzled as you are. Maybe there's some additional (non-printable) characters tacked on the end or something?
Anyway, please report back once you figure it out - thanks :).
