Page Icon Entering a Product License



Whether a license has been obtained for evaluation purposes or has been purchased, it will arrive by email, and should look something like the window shown below.

License E-mail Message

The license contained within the email is placed between the '--begin license--' and '--end license--' text.

In order to enter the license into a Rons Place Software product, it needs to be highlighted and copied, as shown below.

License Key

Note: Between, but not including '--begin license--' and '--end license--'.


To enter a license the Add License window needs to be opened, but there are several ways to open said window. The various routes are shown below.

The license key can be entered by:

From the 'About' window

  • Open the About window, and click 'Enter License'

About Window

From the 'Manage Licenses' window

  • Open the 'Manage Licenses' window, and click 'Enter License' and clicking 'Add...'

Manage Licenses Window

After any of these methods have been used to open the 'Add License' window (or before if prefered), copy the text from the e-mail between (but not including) the '--begin license--'and '--end license--' markers. In the 'Enter Application License' window that appears press the 'Paste' button to enter the license, if it has not been automatically entered. A Signed Valid Status confirming the validity is displayed. Click on 'Add' in order to activate it.

Add License Window

If the license entered was a purchased license the Lite panel will immediately disappear and, if there were any restrictions, these will be lifted and the application will be fully functional.

If there is a problem with the license, it won't be entered automatically into the 'Enter Application License' window when it is opened, and if 'Paste' is pressed, a message saying that the text is not a certificate will be shown.

Add License Window Wrong Key

If this happens the most common problems are:

  • The wrong range of text was copied from the license e-mail.
  • A license from another (incorrect) product has been entered.

If there is still a problem, please contact Rons Place Software using the Contact page, and we will get back to you quickly.


License information can be found in the application's Manage Licenses window.
