The command above fails for me.
Thanks for the report. I do know that ACAtune isn't the best source basis to work with, but this bug wasn't reported before. Also, thanks for the workaround.

The "common ACA register interface" uses addresses "between the CIA chips", which the MMU lib may block. I'll contact Thor for a fix - thanks for the report.

Won't happen - licensing is handled by a separate tool called "ACAcontrol", and it does not use the common ACA register interface. All licensing is handled through a 64k autoconfig memory space. The tool is written from scratch, without the hacks that were required to make ACAtune.
