Manually Entering a product key

................................................................................ ................................................................................ ...................................................................

Using the product key you were given, enter it in the fields indicated, and then click Activate.

 

The purpose of entering a product key is to prompt NeXpose to install a new license. However, you can only use a product key once. For example, if you reinstall NeXpose you will need a new product key.


The product key is a 16-digit combination of numerals and letters, divided into four-digit segments that are separated by hyphens.

 

Example: 123B-45CD-KL89-Z025

 

If you think you need a product key and you are using the community edition, please go to here to register for a new one.

 

To save the new console information, click the Save button, which appears on every page of the wizard.

 

If you configuration does not seem to be saving your session may have timed out. Press F5 while on this page to reload.
