How to update License Key Utility

1. Automatic update

If the computer on which a Reliance project is running is connected to the Internet, the utility is updated automatically. When starting the utility, the Reliance website checks the latest available version, which is then compared with the currently installed version. If an update is required, the latest available version is downloaded and installed after confirming that the utility should be updated. In addition, a system security message must be confirmed if administrator rights are required by the operating system.

2. Manual update

Installer – individual parts

Once you download the zip file with the new version of the utility, open it, extract it, and run it. After that, follow the instructions in the installation wizard. The new version of the utility must be installed in the same destination folder as is the previous version. This ensures that only one version of the utility is stored on disk.

3. Offline update

If the computer is not connected to the Internet, the utility can be updated, but it is first necessary to get the installation file in a different way and copy it to the computer. The offline installation procedure is identical with the manual update procedure.

After updating License Key Utility, you can perform standard operations involving a license stored in a hardware key.
