· The "C" segment represents the license type.
· The "0005" segment represents the number of users allowed.
· The "30102131" segment represents the serial number of the License Key.
· The "X5TH6Y" segment represents the "keycode" that ensures that the License Key is valid.

In the following example of a QuoteWerks 3.0 Standard Edition Site License Key:

D-0002-30102131-PN3LE2-3251-CHI

· The "D" segment represents the license type which is a Standard Edition Remote Site.
· The "0002" segment represents the number of users allowed.
· The "30102131" segment represents the serial number of the License Key.
· The "PN3LE2" segment represents the "keycode" that ensures that the License Key is valid.
· The "3251" segment represents the installation seed of the master installation from which this License Key was generated.
· The "CHI" segment represents the site name for which this License Key was created.

In the following example of a QuoteWerks 3.0 Standard Edition Remote User License Key:

E-0001-30102131-Z6JEP4-3251-John Lewe

· The "E" segment represents the license type which is a Standard Edition Remote User.
· The "0001" segment represents the number of users allowed.

· The "John Lewe" segment represents the user name for which this License Key was created.

More than one License Key can be added to a QuoteWerks installation to increase the number of users allowed to login to that installation. When more than one C or J license is added to the QuoteWerks installation, after the first License Key, the additional License Keys entered will be displayed using a B letter in place of the C or J letter. This is what denotes these licenses as "Bump" licenses that are only used to increase the number of users allowed to login to QuoteWerks. Sublicenses can be split off from the License Keys entered to be used for remote notebooks and remote sites.

If no License Keys are entered, QuoteWerks will operate in demo mode.
