How to update Sage 200 license keys ?
While working on your Sage 200 Accounting software, there may come a time when you need to make certain changes within the settings of the software. This includes the need to reinstall the database, updating the registry, reinstalling the program files and updating the license key. The last one is the most common task that users have to perform when working on their Sage 200 software. The need to update the license key arises because the usage of the system expands.
So, if you are one of those who are looking for ways to update the license key of Sage 200, here is a simple way to do just that. We have outlined a step by step process that can help you easily update the license key of your software.
Locating the license key
The first step while updating the license key of your Sage 200 software is to know where the key and its different elements actually exist. It will help you ascertain that the license key has been updated after the completion of the process. For locating the license key:
- In your Sage 200 Accounting software, go to the Administration screen.
- Click on Systems and then click on License Key Details.
- The screen will show you the license key and its different elements.
However, it will not allow you to make changes to the license key. The license key for your Sage 200 software is actually held at two places: in the Windows registry and inside the system parameter table.
But, you should never try to modify the registry or the system parameter table unless you are a computer expert. Manually changing the registry or system parameter table can cause irreparable damage to system files and folders that can lead to complete system breakdown.
So, the safest methods to update your license key in Sage 200 are:
