Downloading Extended License Issue

Post by Hawkeye3006 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 4:41 am

When I try to download the extended license I get a message that says "Windows can not open this file". then wants to direct me to the internet for help. Anyone have a suggestion?

I use WIN XP on my my Laptop. NO problems with Extended License...

But I see some people got problems with WIN 10 ...

I installed Forscan on my PC running WIN 10...and yes there is a Problem with actuating the extended license...

This is what I did...

Download the extended license...make a new folder and name it License. Put the extended license .key file in to that folder.

Go to Windows (C:) and find the FORScan Folder... Mine was in Program Files (x86)

Paste the " License Folder " in to FORscan...

Or: Right click on ForScan shortcut, Properties, Open File location...put License Folder in there.

Next:

Open the FORscan program

Open License Folder and take it from there...


When done it should look like this:

Never mind I downloaded a different file program and got it opened and transfered to the forscan file and loaded it from there like normal.
