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

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.

So in my wisdom I was using v2.3.0 on Win 7 on a creaky old laptop (which is communicating fine using an ELM327 on USB and has been able to do all sorts including setting the injector magic numbers in the past).

I loaded the key using the "Load Licence Key" function under the "?" tab. The function can navigate to where the .key file is located without issue and appears to load it - but does this very quickly (as if it is doing nothing). I've looked at the key file and it looks good (although I don't really know what a bad one would look like - its not runt, for example), I've regenerated the key again (2 days later) and the crypto is different but it otherwise looks the same as the previous one - so I cant fault the yet file. By the way I don't get a "duff key" warning or suchlike but then I don't know if the s/w will do that. There appears to be no status of whether the normal or extended keys are in or out - feature request?

Trying to operate any extended functions fail with diagnostic "Sorry you need an extended licence blah".

So I downloaded v.2.3.15, installed that. Same thing.

I then uninstalled whatever was in, reinstalled v2.3.15. Same thing.

I then searched the registry for the key, found it (2 places), zapped it, uninstalled v.2.3.15, reinstalled it, reloaded the key. Same thing.

So this looks to me like a bug.
Trouble ticket?
Or finger-trouble?

When activating the extended license it appears to only give you 60 days. Is it possible to continually get new license keys every 2 months or is this necessary?

thanks!

You can get a " New Extended License " when the old one expires after 60 days !
