How do I enter my Quality Window License number that I received?

If you were using Quality Window in trial mode (30 day free trial) and have purchased a full Quality Window 5 or 6 license then you must Register the license number in Quality Window.  First you should understand there are two types of licenses available for Quality Window.

First is the single user license and this means you receive from Busitech one license number (format XXX-XXXXXXXXX-XXX) and you may register and use one copy of Quality Window.

The second option is to have a server based license  or concurrent license that would be set up typically by your Network Support or Administrator and this would allow a pool of licenses to be shared between a group of Quality Window users.  For example if the QW6 License Server contains a 10 seat Concurrent License then up to 10 users could use Quality Window at the same time.  If an eleventh user tried to sign on  a message would be displayed stating that Quality Window was not available to them at that time.

Ok now let’s get to Registering a license in Quality Window.

If you purchased a single user license check Enter Single User License Number and enter the license number issued to you by Busitech (remember to include the hyphens in the license number).

If you purchased a server license check Enter Server Address with Port Number and enter the IP address, or domain name, of the server followed by a colon (:) and the Port number assigned to the license server.

Enter your company name and your name.

Click OK.


An alternative to manually entering your Quality Window license information is to create and save a QW.LIC file in the folder where Quality Window is installed (usually C:\ProgramData\Busitech\QW50).

If you purchased a single user license the QW.LIC would contain the following information:

[QWLICENSE]
LicenseNo = 104-xxxxxxxxxx-xxx (your license number)
RegName1 = Your Company Name
RegName2 = Your Name

If you purchased a Concurrent server license the QW.LIC would contain the following information:

[QWLICENSE]
LicenseNo = 123.456.789.012:5555 (the IP address/domain:port # of your license server)
RegName1 = Your Company Name
RegName2 = Your Name

Start Quality Window and the information will automatically be inserted into the Registration screen and the QW.LIC will be erased.

QW6

  1. Startup QW6 Workstation and click on the X to close the Open Application Screen.
  2. Click on Help

3. Click on Enter/Review QW6 License Information.

If you purchased a QW6 single user license check Enter Single User License Number and enter the license number issued to you by Busitech (remember to include the hyphens in the license number).

If you purchased a server license check Enter Server Address with Port Number and enter the IP address, or domain name, of the server followed by a colon (:) and the Port number assigned to the license server.

Enter your company name and User name.

Click OK.

An alternative to manually entering your Quality Window license information is to create and save a QWLICENSE.IQW file in the folder where Quality Window is installed (usually C:\ProgramData\Busitech\QW6).

If you purchased a single user license the QWLICENSE.IQW would contain the following information:

[QWLICENSE]
   LicenseNo = 106-xxxxxxxxxx-xxx (your license number)
   RegName1 = Your Company Name
   RegName2 = Your Name

If you purchased a Concurrent server license the QWLICENSE.IQW would contain the following information:

[QWLICENSE]
LicenseNo = 123.456.789.012:5555 (the IP address/domain:port # of your license server)
RegName1 = Your Company Name
RegName2 = Your Name

Start QW6 Workstation and the information will automatically be inserted into the Registration screen and the QWLICENSE.IQW will be erased.
