Licensing

If using the sync feature, license keys do not need to be manually registered on each client manually.

Instead, PhraseExpress can automatically distribute a batch of license keys to all joined PhraseExpress clients.

    Adding license keys

    To provide license keys to all users:
    1. Make sure that you are the master user of the sync team.
    2. Copy the list of license keys from the license delivery email into the clipboard.
    3. Open the PhraseExpress main program, click File » User Management » Licenses. If tab "Licenses" is missing, right-click your entry in the user list, select "Define as master" and try again.
    4. Paste the block of license keys into the input box.
    5. Close the User Management window.

    All clients joining the phrase file synchronization (including the master user) will automatically get and register a license key on their next synchronization.

    Each user need local internet access on their computer for the short time of license authorization. If you cannot connect the clients to the internet for the short time of license activation, consider using PhraseExpress with a SQL server.

    This feature allows to distribute license keys to all users but cannot centrally de-register license keys.

    Renewing maintenance

    After purchasing a maintenance renewal, you will receive a batch of new license keys.

    To apply the maintenance renewal:
    1. Make sure that you are the master user.
    2. Copy the new license keys from the license delivery email into the clipboard.
    3. Open the PhraseExpress main program, click File » User Management » Licenses. If tab "Licenses" is missing, right-click your entry in the user list, select "Define as master" and try again.
    4. Highlight and replace the existing license keys by pasting the new license keys from the clipboard.

    All clients (including the master user) without a license key or with expired maintenance will get and register the new license key upon their next synchronization.

    All clients need local internat access on their computer for the short time of license authorization.

    Removing licenses

    To remove licenses from the current setup, e.g. to move the installation to another environment:
    1. Make sure that you are the master user.
    2. Open the PhraseExpress main program, click File » User Management » Licenses. If tab "Licenses" is missing, right-click your entry in the user list, select "Define as master" and try again.
    3. Remove the license keys from the input box.
    4. Close the User Management window.
    5. Manually deregister the license key from each client installation.

    You can now re-use the license keys for another installation.

    All clients need local internat access on their computer for the short time of license deregistration.
