The License Management page can be access from the menu using "Task > Manage > Licenses", or click on the tabs "License > Management". There are two types of licenses: The site license which is required to run CDRv5 Server, and client licenses used for the CDRv5 Clients computers.

License Management Process

A license requires a license file and a license key. The license file is generally downloaded from the web site. License files A license file has an ‘.INI’ file extension. The license key is sent to you by email and is formatted like ‘xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx’.. The key is necessary to enable the license. The license management process is as follows: 1) Download, 2) Import, 3) Assign.

  1. Download / copy the license files in a temporary folder.
  2. Import.
    • Click on the "+" button to select files to be imported;
    • Select one or many license files and click "Open"
    • The imported files will be added to the "License List" grid. For each license in the grid, paste or type the associated key under the "key" column. The key will be automatically validated. A green box around the cell indicates a valid key; a red box indicates an invalid key.
  3. Assign one license to CDRv5 Server.
    • Select a valid CDRv5 Server license file. Its file name looks like "TrillysSystemsCdrService_xxxxxxxxx". Assign that license to your site (i.e.; CDRv5 Server).
