Hello .. just purchased your product and installed it on my Win 7 desktop at home with no problem. Was hoping to also install on my work Macbook Pro (via Parallels Virtual Box Virtual Machine) but I get the following error:

Sorry, this application cannot run under a virtual machine.

Then ... 

ATCpro Fatal Exception
Please restart with a valid license. 

Is there any reason for this? A search on Themida seems to suggest that it's some form of DRM. Why would DRM stop me from installing on a desktop VM?  

Edit: Correction, this is running Virtual Box, not Parallels. (The copy of Windows is legit btw).

The virtual machine behavior is an issue with the copy protection wrapper method that we are using, and various other technical issues.  We are working on the problem, and will advise when/if we have a solution. 
UPDATE:  I have checked into this issue, and ATCpro cannot run in a virtual machine.  There is no workaround.
We regret the inconvenience.
