3. Execute a command from the Apps installed ribbon tab, depending on the app you'll be prompted with the corresponding form of licensing. Use the table above to know which licensing is on the app currently. (We are working on transitioning all our apps to Flexera)
You should be prompted with a Flexera License Finder dialog message. On the Flexera License Finder Dialog, browse to the location in which you saved the license file received.
If you do not see the Flexera License Finder Dialog, it could be because you are using another one of our products or have in the past. If you have another one of our products, you should save your trial license from the email or any standalone licenses in the same directory previously used for simplicity.
If you are using a network license, follow the Trial License Instructions to append the registry key with your new license path.
Manual Request and Activation Codes
You should have received an email with a unique link to the license portal in which you can generate your license. If you did not, simply send the Reques code to firstname.lastname@example.org along with proof of purchase of the app so we can locate the account information. We'll follow back up with a Activation code.
4. The app should now be functional. If the installed app is using Flexera licensing, keep in mind the Trial license is only good for one month. You will need to submit the proper computer information through our license portal as per the email instructions. If there's any issues, please do not hesitate to email email@example.com.
