License Registration

Registering Your Bennet-Tec Product

When you purchase a license we will send you a document "Certificate of License" containing your License Serial Number. If you purchase more than one license ( for more than one programmer ) you will receive multiple Serial Numbers ( one for each programmer ).

After you receive your Certificate of License, the serial number must then be registered by the programmer on the computer where the programmer will be developing. A programmer may work on multiple computers with a single license ( for example a computer at work and another at home and a laptop for the road ). The only restriction is that only one programmer may use each license - the license may not be shared.

To Register the license

    a) First make sure you are logged into Windows using the same Windows account you will use for programming and that your Windows account has admin privileges ( can modify registry )

    b) Close all other applications before registering

    c) Then run the license registration utility. You will be given this option at the end of the installation process, or you can run this utility at any time from the Windows Start Menu.

The License Registration utility includes 2 tabs.

  • On-line Registration: Automatically connects to the internet without a web browser and updates license information on your system. You do not need to access this web site if you are using the On-Line Registration tab.

    Note: This process may not work if you are using firewall protection.

  • Off-Line Registration: If your computer is not connected to the internet, you may use the Off-Line Registration tab.

    To perform an Off-Line Registration you will need to supply a registration code unique for your machine, your user name and your serial number. To retrieve your registration code select the appropriate product below, complete the form and click the "Register" Button.

    Note: You will need the Machine Key displayed in the Off-Line Registration tab.
    Note: You will also need to use a computer that does have an Internet connection to create the registration code for the computer that the control is installed on.

    Please select the control you need to register
