I know we all have different ways of doing things, but I had no issues. I just joined. The directions list two ways to add the key.




Taken from the FIRST page of this thread:

:arrow: 4. You have 2 ways to apply the license key:
4.1. Just double-click on the file and confirm adding the registry record, then restart FORScan.
4.2. Use button Load license key in FORScan->About section, then agree to restart the application.

Last year I applied for the extended license, was easy, worked great. Now I would like to do a couple quick mods with forscan and of course the trial 2mo license has expired, so I requested a new one successfully and tried to apply it multiple ways, but it is still showing standard license in the about section. How do I get it applied now? Thanks!
Update: Solved my problem: Incorrect Time/Date on the laptop I was using, it is an older Windows model that I didn't keep charged, battery died, date was outside of extended license date. Thanks for all you do with Forscan! If you ever accept donations hit me up, I am in!

FORScan wrote:In the 2.2.* branch we introduce new terms: Standard License and Extended License for Windows versions of FORScan.

Standard license is the default one distributed with FORScan. Anyone who has downloaded and installed FORScan version for Windows works under Standard license. FORScan under Standard license is fully functional, except some (few) functions that are available under Extended license only. Extended license is not provided by default and has to be obtained as described below.

The objectives of the Extended license:

1. Limit access to critical functions. For example, let's look at the PATS programming functions. If the function is available without any control, any thief who has a laptop and ELM327 can program new key just for seconds. We do not think this is something what our users want.

2. Take payment for functions that are most time/resource consuming in impementation. We are often asked about donation. We have no donation scheme, but in the future anyone who wish to help us financially has an ability to purchase the Extended license.

So in other words, if you are a FORScan user, you will have only 2 cases when you need the Extended license:

A. If you want to help to FORScan team financially (in the future, as currently we have no payment options).
B. If you need an access to a function that is available under Extended license. If it is your case, please do not try to inquire for Extended License unless you see the following message:
extended_license_en.png
List of functions that require Extended license:

Note: the functions may be implemented not for all models. Please either check for your car support in Change Log on the Download page, or check for the function presence in the functions' list when FORScan is connected to the vehicle,

Service -> PATS Programming
Configuration and Programming -> Module Configuration
Configuration and Programming -> Module Configuration(AS BUILT format)
Configuration and Programming -> Central Configuration
Configuration and Programming -> Module Reset/Configuration (required to learn central configuration changes related to these modules)

All the rest functions do not require an Extended License!

How to get the extended license:

Note: Regular users can get the 2-months Extended license for free, following the procedure below. Beta-testers, translators and all the other people who helped us with the project R&D can get the lifelong Extended license, following the procedure below, if they are added to a special group on the forum. Users are added to these groups by request (NOT in automated mode).

1. Copy the Hardware Id from the About chapter of FORScan:
extended_license_about_en.png
Important note: you need the hardware id of the equipment that directly works with your vehicle. So if you have a desktop and laptop, and you use the desktop to review the logs and the laptop is used to connect to your vehicle, you need to get the Hardware Id of you laptop!

2. Generate trial license using this link:

Generate trial license

with the following information:
- Your First and Last name
- Contact phone
- Hardware Id obtained in the item #1

3. After license key is successfully generated, click on the Download link in the Action row of the table and download the license key to any convenient place.

4. You have 2 ways to apply the license key:
4.1. Just double-click on the file and confirm adding the registry record, then restart FORScan.
4.2. Use button Load license key in FORScan->About section, then agree to restart the application.

5. FORScan with correctly applied extended license should look like this:

Thank you so much, you are going to help me a lot.

Hi, I am the holder of the ELM327 v3 on stn1170 usb. I think that will be added to the Diagnostics of cars in my garage, complementary to the IDS. What worries me is that only the license limits its capabilities.Poland

I have used the software to program keys for my 2011 F150 Ecoboost successfully, but when I tried to program keys for both of my parents vehicles (2001 F150 and 2004 Escape) it won't load the options to program keys. Is there a limitation on vehicles that can be programmed with a single license?
