We have recently received isolated problem reports related to license registration on Windows 10. Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce the behavior in our environments. But Docklight offers an alternative way to store/use your license key on your computer:
– Create a text file with one line of text that contains your full license key number from the delivery e-mail. (NOT the shortened number which Docklight shows you in the “Help – License Registration…” dialog. See also the FAQ link below.)
– Rename the file to “docklight_license.lic”. (Make sure it does NOT have an extra “.txt” file extension. Windows should not show it as a text file any more.)
– Open Windows File Explorer (keyboard shortcut Win + E) and copy the file “docklight_license.lic” to your Docklight installation folder, e.g “C:\Program Files (x86)\Docklight”.
– Restart Docklight.
NOTE: In case you are trying to install a Docklight version V1.9 or older on Windows 7 or Windows 10: please update to our
latest software version instead – it’s free. And every new release undergoes a large set of automated testing procedures (we actually use Docklight Scripting as a testing master!). This ensures the communications and communications output are identical to the previous Docklight release. See the link below for the updated software.
