We had issues with our early registered transfer students, but by the time regular 1L orientation rolled around, the errors reduced considerably. We're just giving new codes.

We saw a handful of errors, and solved the issue by sharing another code.  I'll let our librarian contact with Westlaw know that this has been an issue for several folks.

I have been dealing with the problem since July. We received an entire batch of passcodes for our summer starters that gave the error. I have had two that ran into the problem this fall. Westlaw issued a second set of codes that seemed to work fine. I got no answer from them what the problem was.

A small but significant number of our new students are having problems registering Westlaw accounts.  When they enter their registration codes, they're getting a message saying that the code is already in use.  The codes are nice, fresh registration codes, and the from the "West Admin" interface I can see that the codes are "Not registered".  Westlaw Tech Support can fix it on a case-by-case basis, but I don't think that's a practical solution.  Is anyone else seeing the same problem?
