re-enter license key

Postby techidave » Thu May 04, 2017 4:43 am

When I opened pw5 today, it said I was running the trial version. I am pretty sure I entered my license key for pw 4 premium upon installing it originally. I entered my key again.

is there anyway to tell if I did enter it earlier on?

Once you've entered the license key, the following file is created on the Windows file system,
and the file will contain the License Key along with other license metadata.

%programdata%\PowerWorship\pW4\License\Pw.License

normally this will be located at C:\ProgramData (C:\ProgramData\PowerWorship\pW4\License\Pw.License)
depending on your Windows installation, but if you can't find it there, you can enter the path to
%programdata%\PowerWorship\pW4\License in the Windows File Explorer with the %programdata% environment
variable in tact, and it should resolve correctly.

The text portion of the file (including the license number) should be visible in Notepad or Wordpad,
but be sure not to edit and save the file, if you do open it in Notepad or another text editor.

That said, the existence of the file is enough to tell you whether you entered the license number previously.

the file is there. It was created on May 4,2017. I guess I'll never know if I had entered it before.

OH well...<sigh>
