The License Manager function in the Tools menu, which is only available for administrators or when you choose to activate from the Welcome dialog, allows you to view, add, or remove Stonefield Query licenses.

The list at the left shows the serial number for each installed license. To see the activation code, registration number, type and number of users for a particular license, select it from the list; the Selected License area shows the appropriate information. The Total Licenses area shows the total number of installed Report Designer and Report Viewer licenses.

To increase the number of licenses, contact Stonefield Software Inc. to obtain a serial number for the additional number of licenses you require. In the License Manager, click the Add button. There are a couple of ways you can add a license:

  • If you have a serial number and an Internet connection, you can click the Online button to obtain your activation code immediately. The activation code is automatically filled in; you can then click the OK button to complete the activation for that license. If something goes wrong (for example, if the Web server is down), you get a warning message and have to try again later.

    Note that if your computer accesses the Internet using a proxy server, you'll have to tell Stonefield Query about that server by filling in the Proxy Server settings in the Options dialog.

  • Email Technical Support to obtain an activation code. Enter the activation code and click the OK button.

To remove licenses, such as when you want to move a Stonefield Query installation to another system, select the license to remove from the list and click the Remove button. You are asked to confirm the license should be removed, and a removal code is displayed for your reference.

If your software maintenance has been renewed, click the Renew button to display a dialog in which you can either manually enter a renewal code provided when you renewed or click the Online button to read the renewal information from our server.

Click the Refresh button to contact our server and synchronize your license information with ours.

Click the Copy button to copy the selected serial number to the Clipboard. This makes it easier to specify your serial number when requesting technical support.
