Exclamation Ka-50 vanished after update to 1.5.8

As title says, my black shark disappeared from dcs after last update to 1.5.8 stable.
Module worked well on 1.5.7, was first purchased as BS1 and updadet to BS2 with upgrade patch some years ago.
it's visible in the module manager, but serial number is missing compared to other modules. tried to de- or reactivate it via protect.exe, but there's a message saying my license is already activated.
DCS repair helped neither.
Even the icon on the start screen is missing
someone out there got equal problems?

- edit
all other installed modules are working

It's a weird one - I would suggest that you contact the DCS website support - they are usually very helpful in this kind of problem.

Or maybe post here:


Updating doesn't change your licence situation - that is held separately, so if you activated it, it will still show as activated, even if you have an issue with your installation such as this.
