I have a problem with license registration on Windows 10. After I enter my full license key number from the original delivery e-mail, Docklight remains in evaluation mode and asks for the license key again on the next startup. This also happens when I use “Run as administrator” for starting Docklight.

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.
