Entering Your QuoteWerks License Key(s)

When you start QuoteWerks, it will prompt you to Enter License Key or Continue in Demo Mode.

In demo mode, the login window won’t display; you’ll simply be logged in to the demo as “Administrator”.

When you purchased QuoteWerks, you should’ve received your License Key(s) in one of the following two ways:

1.Virtually, by e-mail

2.On the order-confirmation page that was included with your shipment

Tip:If you can’t locate your License Key(s), contact QuoteWerks Technical Support for assistance.

These License Keys tell QuoteWerks which edition (Standard, Professional, or Corporate) you've purchased, how many licenses you've purchased, and whether you've purchased any optional add-ons like the Real-time module or the Product Content Subscription.

The way your licenses will be broken up will depend on how many you’re purchasing and at what point you’re purchasing them. For example, if you purchase licensing for seven users, you’ll likely receive two License Keys: a 5-user and a 2-user Key. Combined, these keys add up to 7 user licenses.

Important:   Only enter multi-user License Keys once — into the network install.

To add new keys to your installation, you will need to add your Update Key first.  This key starts with the letter "U".  This is an example update key: U-123456-12345678-123456. Your Update Key will be found in your confirmation email with your other license key(s).  Add this key first by clicking on the [Enter Update Key] button.

Following the acceptance of the update key, in the License Manager window, click on the [Add License] button. Enter all of the License Key(s) you were issued; generally, if you have more than one key, we recommend that you enter the key containing the larger number of licenses. License Key letters are not case sensitive, and will automatically appear in uppercase as you type them in.

If you have a License Key saved to your clipboard, you can click on the [Paste Key] button to paste the license into the window rather than entering it manually.

When you’re finished, click on the [Ok] button.

After you have entered the License Key, QuoteWerks will let you know that this License Key needs to be registered within 30 days. QuoteWerks will be FULLY FUNCTIONAL during this 30-day period.  For details on how to register License Keys, please see License Manager Window.

If you’ve purchased any other modules or additional QuoteWerks licenses, you can enter these additional License Keys after QuoteWerks has started by navigating to the Utilities -> License Manager menu, then clicking on the [Add License] button and following the previously outlined steps for each additional License Key.
