5.7. Activating a 5.x Enterprise Network Client

Applies to:
Palisade Enterprise Network clients, release 5.x
(If you have a 6.x Enterprise Network, see Activating a 6.x Enterprise Network License.)

I want to activate a client (workstation) license for a new user. How do I do that?

The client must be on network with your server, specifically the server that originally activated this client. There's no need to connect to the Internet.

  1. If Excel is running, close all instances.

  2. Locate the NLicense program in the Palisade System folder. (This is usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Palisade\System or C:\Program Files\Palisade\System.) NLicense is not automatically part of the client install, so if it's not there you will need to copy it to this specific folder from the serial-number folder on the server.

  3. Double-click NLicense.

  4. Select or enter your local server in the "Network License Server(s)" box.

  5. Select or enter the license you wish to activate in the "Borrow License" box.

  6. Set the end date for the activation period. On the date specified, the license will automatically be returned to your Enterprise Network server and will be unavailable on the client workstation.

  7. Click the Borrow License button.
