Installing a Standalone license file (video)

Installing a Standalone license file (video)

This video demonstrates how to import your license into the Silk Standalone license installer.

In order for a license to be installed into the Standalone license installer it must have either the line ‘Allow_Standalone = true’, or ‘Force_Standalone = true’

To open the Standalone installer go to START | All PROGRAMS | SILK.  Open the Administration Tools folder, and click on ‘Silk Stand Alone License Installer’.

In the dialog, click on the ‘Browse’ option, locate your license file and click Open.  This will bring you back to the Installer window where you can select ‘Import’.

The next step is to ensure that Silk Performer knows where to look for the licenses.  To do this go to START | All PROGRAMS | SILK, and this time open the ‘Change your license server configuration’ wizard.

Choose the option ‘Not using server (Standalone)’, accept the warning which tells you how your license should be configured for this, and Click the Apply button.

Now open Silk Performer and check the licenses under HELP | ABOUT to ensure your licenses are picked up.
