In this article, we’re going to discuss how to manually install a licence without reinstalling the software.

Why would I want to do this?

The main reason for wanting to reinstall the licence details is that something went wrong during the installation of the software, or something went wrong during a software update and that whatever went wrong it resulted in licence details not being installed, or being incorrectly installed, resulting in the software not working correctly.

When licence details can’t be read a dialog similar to the dialogs shown below will be displayed.

Installing licence keys manually

You need to run a licence install utility to install the licence keys without reinstalling the software. This is named svlLicence?V.exe or svlLicence?V_x64.exe, where the “?” can be various different letters.

Running the svlLicence?V_x64.exe version will install licence keys for both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the software, whereas the svlLicence?V.exe version will only install 32-bit licence keys.
