How to activate the FineReader Server 14 license from another computer, if the target computer doesn't have access to the internet?

 

Answer

If the target computer doesn't have access to the internet, it is possible to activate the license from another computer by sending an Activation request via email.

To do it, please, follow these steps:

1. After installing FineReader Server 14, launch the Remote Administration Console. The License Manager window will open OR right-click on the Licensing node in the Remote Administration Console and choose "Add New License":

2. Select Activate with serial number or license file:

Note: this step might be skipped if you chose "Add New License" from the Licensing node.

3. This will launch the Activation Wizard. Enter the license number into the Activation Wizard and click the "Next" button:
