    This error message is shown when the user has not been authenticated by our servers.

    Does login/logout disappear this error message ?

    How many users are using vmchat concurrently? more than 100?

    Try clearing your browser cookies to see if this works ?

    In case it does not help then can you elaborate a more about the scenario in which error brings up so that it can help us to fix this problem. We will try to reproduce this error at our end based on your inputs.

    It is very nice application.
    I recommend the fact that it can give a chance to select chatting among only course participants.
    Also how we can change weight of bar?

    I followed your installation instructions, including requesting a key through the Get Key settings; however, I keep getting the error "VmChat License Key is not valid".

    Hi Nellie,

    I am able to see chat bar at your site. Try to load page multiple times and see if this will work for you.

    After installation in Moodle chat 2.9.1 does not appear, and the plugin asks to be updated. Plugin "Get Key" I understand, too, your, it is only possible to delete via FTP? The settings of both plugins are not served (no buttons).

    Try to update latest version and then enable it from Site administration -> Vm chat to make it appear.
    Both plugins can be uninstalled via interface. Since Vmchat depends on Get key, so first you need to uninstall vmchat then uninstall link for Get key will automatically appear.
