Activate a standard license key

Once installed, a license key must be activated before using NeoLoad. The activation procedure links the license key to the installation machine. Once activated, the key may still be transferred onto another machine with the process described in Transfer a standard license key.

After installing a license key, and when that key requires activating, the NeoLoad License Activation wizard is displayed. The wizard is also accessible at any time with Help > License management > License section > Activate license button.

The license key may be activated:

The Active online now option is recommended. It is quick and secure. NeoLoad takes care of contacting the Neotys central license server. This activation mode requires an internet access. The activation request is launched immediately.

The Activate through a web form option makes it possible to manually manage the activation of the installed license. With this option, a license.req file for the activation request is created. The file must be sent to the Neotys central license server. It must be attached in the Activation Form on the License Management section or in an email to activation@neotys.com. The Neotys central server sends back a .lic file to download or in an email. The .lic file is the activated license key to enter in NeoLoad.
