Register a License Key

Introduction

Configuration Tool License Keys can be delivered in two ways:

Registering a license from an Order Confirmation Page or Email

To register the license in an Order Confirmation Page or Order Confirmation Email:

1. Start the Configuration Tool.

2. From the Tools menu select Register Configuration License.

If you are registering the license on a computer with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, the User Account Control dialog box will open:

Windows User Account Control Dialog

Click Yes to allow the Fernhill SCADA License Administrator to make changes to your computer.

3. The Register Configuration License Key dialog opens:

Note: In the next step you will paste the copied text into the Register Configuration License Key dialog. The Register Configuration License Key dialog will search the text for a valid license key and, if one is found, fill out the fields in the dialog.

5. Click Paste on the Register Configuration License Key dialog.

Note: If the data on the clipboard does not contain a valid license key you will see an error similar to this:

If you see this error message, go back to step 4 and try again.

6. Click the Register button. The Register Configuration License Key dialog will register your license and close.

Registering a license file (.fhlic)

On rare occasions we may send you a license key file (.fhlic) as an email attachment.

When you receive your license key file, please keep it in a secure location.

To register the license key file:

1. Copy the license key file (.fhlic) to a suitable location on the computer where you want to register the license. For example My Documents.

2. Open the license key file.

If you are registering the license on a computer with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, the User Account Control dialog box will open:

Windows User Account Control Dialog

Click Yes to allow the Fernhill SCADA License Administrator to make changes to your computer.

3. The Register Configuration License Key dialog opens:

Register Developer License Key dialog box

4. Click the Register button. The Register Configuration License Key dialog will register your license and close.

Note: We recommend you create a safe backup of your license key file(s) for use in the event of disaster recovery.
